Micromax Canvas A120 Pro HD Review

Updated on April 25, 2013

If rumors are to be believed, we are in for a really huge surprise from Micromax. The successor of the highly acclaimed A116 Canvas HD is going to be up for sales within 2 weeks or so. It is called the Micromax A120 Canvas Pro HD. Many sites have put it up in their mobile listing (as coming soon) but the price is not yet disclosed. So before the phone releases I thought I will do a complete review of its specifications and help you decide whether to buy it or not. All your suggestions and feedback in the form of comments are welcome. The Canvas HD was hugely successful due to its HD display at a very affordable price. The phone was out of stock within 30 minutes of putting it up for sale (2000 units were sold within 30 minutes). We are hoping the Canvas A120 will do the same on a larger scale. So let’s get to the review now.

According to the images that I’ve got, the Canvas A120 looks stunning. The sleek long body is a sight to behold. At the front there is the earpiece at the top and there are three touch capacitative buttons. Behind we have the camera along with the LED flash and the Micromax logo. The phone looks similar to the Canvas HD but it is bigger and better. All in all I would give the Micromax A120 Pro HD 4.5/5.

This is something that shook me all over. The hardware inside this phone is too good to be true. And I keep asking myself whether this is all true. Starting from the processor till the RAM, everything is just too good. I’ll start off with the processor. Canvas Pro HD has a Cortex-A7 quad-core processor clocked at a humongous 2 GHz clock speed. This is sure to give you snappy performance. The processor is from MediaTek. The GPU is supposedly from the PowerVR5 XT series and it is one of the best in this class. It has other features glued to it like hyper threading. I am hoping that the phone will have 8 GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 64 GB via microSD. And last but not the least, the RAM. It comes with 2 GB of RAM. The phone has all the other features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. The configuration of this phone is way more superior to my PC. My PC only has a dual core processor and 2 GB of RAM. It’s kind of funny to think that smartphones will overtake the computers in the years to come.

Rate the phone yourself!!!

5 out of 5 stars from 13 ratings of Micromax Canvas A120 Pro HD


Another milestone for Micromax is the display of this phone. The Canvas A120 Pro HD comes with a full HD display as seen on the HTC Butterfly. The screen is 5.5 inches big and is similar in size to the Galaxy Note. The resolution is 1920x1080 pixels which means that you will be getting a pixel density of almost 401 pixels per inch. This means that whatever is up on the screen will be bright and crisp, be it videos, games or images.


If I say that this is another milestone, you may be thinking that I’m mad. But what else am I supposed to do if Micromax has put in all the best parts into this phone. The Canvas Pro HD has a 13 megapixel shooter behind it. Yes, you heard me right, 13 megapixels. This comes in with dual-LED flash and also the capability of recording full-HD videos at 30 frames per second. At the front we also have a 3.2 megapixel camera which take great quality pictures and can be used for video calling also.


The Canvas Pro HD comes with the biggest battery that I’ve heard of. It has a 3000 mAh battery under its hood and I think it is a wise decision by Micromax because this battery is more than sufficient to handle the full-HD display, 2 gigs of RAM and the 13 megapixel shooter.


Do you even need a verdict? I would buy this phone at any time of the day without any questions asked. This is mainly because of the great features that are put into this phone at the price we all want. That is the biggest plus point of Micromax. They put in all this great hardware and their policy is to make it available for the middle-class people. All of us cannot buy and HTC Butterfly, so for us Micromax Canvas A120 Pro HD is surely a winner.

      People, Micromax has released Canvas 4. Check out their official website. Even though the specs of the phone are a little inferior compared to this one, it is an awesome phone.

      I agree that these devices are becoming incredible. I too have a dual core PC. Are you telling me that little tablet can process faster than mine? I guess so. It is great to see a tablet priced reasonably with all of the particulars. I look forward to seeing a tablet of this quality and price in the states. Good review. Voted up.
