Micromax Canvas HD Overview

Published :

The Good

  • High end features at a low price
  • Powerful processing performance with the quad core processor
  • Compact utility driven design

The Bad

  • Plastic hardware feel
  • Battery performance is low
  • Camera bulging out at back panel spoils it's look.

The Bottom Line

A number of smart features at a low price is the USP of the Micromax Canvas HD A116 and if we donot expect a high end feel from the material of the phone considering the price, it's a worthy buy.

In the particular smartphone markets where the mammoths like Samsung Galaxy S3Sony Xperia Z and HTC One X  are biting their nails to be the best phone in the market and make the maximum profit, Micromax Canvas HD A116 amazed every one with it's low price along with amazing features. The Canvas HD A116 gives good compitition to these mammoths and marks the name of Micromax brand in the market. The Canvas HD A116 looks more like an enlarged version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus , unlike its predecessor, the Canvas 2, whose design resembled that of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3.

Design And Build:

The surprisingly stylish Canvas sports curved edges and a curved back that make it convenient to hold and a 3.5 mm audio jack is packed sleekly into the body. The back panel of the phone gives you the feel of cheap plastic which may shatter into pieces if you drop the phone accidently. Also the camera lens come bulging out at the back which gives a wierd sad look to the back part of the phone.

Camera Performance:

It's not just the megapixels in the camera that matters, what matters the most is the size of the lens, the aperture and the sensor which the camera uses. The 8 MP camera of Canvas HD is not good as it should be, Samsung Galaxy Grand's camera is better. Shooting in low-light is a nightmare and the camera engine used by Micromax a little over saturates the image. Sometimes the camera overexposes the images. But if you have a separate camera or SLR and you carry that you shoot photos, this shouldn't be a matter. Manual touch focus is a plus point and the camera is better than the one used in Canvas 2.

Display Clarity:

Despite sporting a 5-inch screen, the phone looks compact compared to the Canvas 2. The phone's 5-inch HD IPS screen sports a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and a colour depth of 16.7 million. Thanks to the higher resolution, text, icons and images look much sharper compared to the Canvas 2. The HD IPS display drains the battery very much when comparing to Samsung's Super AMOLED display. The battery backup could be better, but if you don't play games and watch movies all the time, it should be okay. The HD display makes it very pleasurable to watch HD movies and play HD games on the Micromax Canvas HD A116.

Processing Speed:

It has a quad core A7 Mediatek MT 6589 processor. This chipset is very capable but cannot be compared to S4, Grand or Xperia Z's processor. A dual core A9 processor is almost equivalent to A7 quad core processor. Gaming and UI works smoothly without any lags. The Micromax Canvas HD runs Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean). Similar to most other Android devices, there are five customisable home screens that can be filled with app shortcuts and widgets.

Power On It:

Micromax Canvas HD A116 packs a 2000 mAh battery which has a standby time upto 174 hrs and talktime upto 5 hrs which is average for a smartphone. You will have to keep the charger along your side if you want to make the full use of HD gaming and watch movies on your Canvas HD.


Ultimately the Micromax Canvas HD A116 is a decent performer on all fronts and considering its low price is a good buy.

Below 12k, for a best buy, the Micromax Canvas HD should be a good option to opt for. The Micromax Canvas HD has been one of the phones from Micromax to have enjoyed huge popularity which is still continuing. The phone has some really good features for this price segment and the features work really well without any lags whatsoever. It is just that the battery on it doesnot stand for much long a duration.

Should I Invest In Micromax A116 Canvas HD. Is It A Good Choice?


I am looking to buy a new phone without any limitations on brand but the budget is limited to below Rs.15000. Need to know the review for the Micromax Canvas HD


For a budget of Rs.15000, there aren't much of options that are exciting enough from brands like Samsung or Sony. Brands like Micromax however provide a number of exciting options along with high value for money in this budget range. The Micromax A116 Canvas HD is definitely one of the best phones that has come from Micromax till date and can be a great buy in the budget you are quoting.

Looking For Powerbank Options Below 1000 Rs.


I need to buy a powerbank that can be used to fully charge a hd screen smartphone


Below Rs.1000, your choices would be pretty limited. However recently came across and bought a EViO powerbank at 800 around for use with my Canvas HD. Has been working really well. Would suggest it.

HD Phones Really Suck Off The Power, Looking To Get A Phone That Is More Battery Friendly?


I need a phone that has more battery backup with HD if any. Otherwise would like to have a phone that carries a great display although not HD with good battery.


It is not as if HD screens alone will suck off more power. While phones like the Micromax Canvas HD do lose a lot of power because of the HD screen, that would be because of a lower capacity battery than necessary. If you want phones with better battery backup yet with HD screens, you can check out the Galaxy Note 3 from Samsung as well as the LG G2.
