Micromax A116 Canvas HD vs Samsung Galaxy Grand: A Real Comparison

Micromax has already owns the title to be the India's second-largest mobile sellers. They have even got more popularity upon the release A116 Canvas HD. With the launch of this device, Micromax had made their next step from being in budget smartphone to mid-range smartphones. Also the Micromax had made Samsung as their strongest competitor with this release. Samsung has recently launched their new mid-range smartphone Galaxy Grand to the market which mad them compete against the Canvas HD. Although both the device features similar specifications, as always Micromax offers an attractive price which is rather cheap compared to the price tag of Samsung. This tough competition between these smartphones makes the consumer confused about their right device. So here I came with a full technical comparison between Canvas HD and Galaxy Grand to provide you the right information and to help you take better decision.


While talking about the display, both the devices features an impressive 5 inch multi-touch capacitive touchscreen. Canvas HD features a beautiful HD display that offers a resolution of 1280x720 pixels. 
Where as Galaxy Grand has got less impressive display which is WVGA with 800x480 pixels of resolution. Viewing angles and outdoor views of these devices performs quite similar, but Canvas HD offers more wide angle for its display.

Processor and Memory

Samsung Galaxy Grand is being powered by a dual-core processor running at a speed of 1.2 GHz which is quite enough to run a 5" smartphone smoothly. Where as the Canvas HD has got a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor being powered by MediaTek which is lot more impressive and a great step ahead than Galaxy Grand. Whereas both the devices hold similar size of RAM with 1GB which is large enough to offer better performance for the devices. But the story changes when we look into the on-board storage of these devices. Galaxy Grand has got an interesting 8GB storage over the 4GB internal storage of Canvas HD. Since both of these devices are capable for expanding their memory through microSD, the high internal storage doesn't mean much to the consumer. But Samsung had improved its way for the expandability inside Galaxy Grand which features expanding up to 64GB compared to32GB for that of Canvas HD

Operating System

When many smartphone manufactures are not giving much attention towards the operating system and still provides Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich preloaded to their devices, Samsung as well as Micromax act as a nice model for them by delivering the latest available operating system to their consumers. It means that Canvas HD as well as the Galaxy Grand delivers the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. This feature enables their consumers to experience the latest available operating system right away from the box. Both the devices features a great performance and delivers wonderful user interface. But Samsung is still ahead in the field of offering upgrades to its older smartphones against Micromax who never offered any updates for its older devices.


Both the devices Micromax A116 Canvas HD as well as the Samsung Galaxy Grand features a 8MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash. Both the camera are capable of shooting videos at Full HD. Whereas the front camera powered to Galaxy Grand has got 2 MP along with HD recording for video calling and other services, over Micromax's 2.0 MP. Also the Galaxy Grand had shown the real difference in its price tag by featuring a high quality backside illumination sensor that enhances the camera capability and helps to get clear shot even in low light conditions. Galaxy Grand also features zero shutter lag and the camera start-up is just at lightning fast. As a result Galaxy Grand has got a better performing camera than that of Canvas HD.


Although there is only a slight difference in their specifications, the price tag of both these devices has a large variations. Canvas HD being priced at Rs 15000 featuring a HD screen along with quad-core processor is much budget friendly when compared to non HD screen and less powered processor in Galaxy Grand priced at a price tag of Rs 21000. If you want to experience a quad-core smartphone within a cheaper price, Canvas HD will be your recommended device, whereas if you are really looking for a 5" device with excellent quality and high performing camera, your device is none other than Galaxy Grand. So the ultimate decision to choose the right device is with you.
