Every second day, we hear about a new phone launch in the market. Whether it is a smartphone or an android device, there are several brands of phones and their models available in the mobile phone and tablets market, but when one particularly talks about the Indian mobile phone industry, we need to think about reasonable pricing with maximum features in a particular range. And when it comes to a phablet which means a phone that also works as a tablet PC, nothing can beat Micromax A116 Canvas HD which was launched just 2 days before this comparison was written. One interesting thing to note here is that Samsung Mobile India followed suit and launched Galaxy Grand in the Indian cell phone market which has features similar to the Micromax Canvas A116 HD phablet. So below you can find a comparison of both of these phones that have 5-inch screens but have a huge price difference. (One more thing before we start, Micromax HD A116 will sell like hot cakes online as you will get some discount there so it is better to wait for the online portals to open the sale, at least they don't sell the phone at black as shopkeepers have been doing outside like at mobile shops in Karol Bagh Gaffar Market).

Samsung Galaxy Grand

  1. Dual SIM phone.
  2. High-definition five-inch WVGA 800- ´ 480-pixel resolution display.
  3. Android 4.1 Jellybean operating system.
  4. 2100-mAH battery.
  5. Inbuilt 1-GB RAM.

  10. Tentative price: 21500 rupees. Really high for similar features.

So above was the comparison of Samsung Galaxy Grand with Micromax A116 Canvas HD phablet. All in all, it is a true fact that a buyer who can afford or love an Apple, HTC, Samsung, or Nokia phone will always buy a phone from them but those buyers consume only 50%of the mobile phone market share. In India, it is difficult for an average mobile phone buyer to afford a phone more than 10000 rupees and mobile phone companies like Micromax, Karbonn, and Lava understand this and launched several models in this price range. Now when talking in particular about Micromax, it was just 3 to 4 years ago when we used to visit a local mobile store and find their phones but what was our reaction after seeing those phones, “Oh, come on I came here to buy a Samsung or Nokia phone and not something without a good brand reputation like Micromax” but those days have gone.

Now Micromax has created its presence in the market and with their recent advertisements on TV and Internet and reasonable pricing packed with maximum features, they are tapping their potential clients giving tough competition to their bigger counterparts. Also we can still see positive reviews of Micromax Canvas 2 Superfone after 2-1/2 months of its launch and this is the reason why people are buying this Superfone at black of 1000 to 1500 rupees from the market as it is almost out of stock. I have never seen any other phone in the recent past selling at black in the Indian mobile phone industry. Critics say that it might be a trick by Micromax by not releasing stock and making their brand popular while it is selling in black but real users don't think so as they have been enjoying using this phone without any problem for last 2-1/2 months.
