Few days ago Micromax suprised everybody by launching QUAD CORE smartphone within the price of Rs 15,000/- . Now Karbonn, another Indian phone manufacturer and biggest rival of Micromax has punched Micromax on its face by launching a QUAD CORE smartphone within the price of Rs 10,000/- only, named Karbonn S1 Titanium.

3. Micromax A116 Canvas HD User Interface vs Karbonn S1 Titanium User Interface - As both Karbonn S1 Titanium and Micromax A116 Canvas HD runs on Android OS and that too the latest version of Android i.e. 4.1 jellybean thats why there is not much difference in their USER INTERFACE also neither Micromax and nor Karbonn customize Android os like Samsung, Sony and HTC does. The only difference is number of extra apps included by Micromax and Karbonn in their respective smartphones which doesn't make any big difference. But personally I find the user interface of Micromax more polished and smooth and Karbonn.

4. Micromax A116 Canvas HD Performance vs Karbonn S1 Titanium Performance - Since we are comparing smartphones with QUAD CORE processors, the expectations from these phones are quite high. While Micromax Canvas HD live upto the expectation whereas Karbonn S1 fails to meet the expectations. During normal usage both smartphones performs adequately but when pushed hard Karbonn S1 Titanium starts lagging which is very annoying. Also the battery life of both the smartphones are below par considering their quad core processors.

5. Micromax A116 Canvas HD Price vs Karbonn S1 Titanium Price -There difference between the pricing of these 2 smartphones is not very big while Karbonn S1 Titanium is available for Rs 10,990/- only which makes it the cheapest QUAD CORE smartphone ever whereas Micromax Canvas HD is priced at Rs 13,980/-.


I'm not a big fan of smartphones manufactured by Indian mobile companies as I don't find them reliable. But still we should praise these companies for launching high specifications smartphones at such a low price. Talking about these 2 Quad Core smartphones, Micromax Canvas HD is a clear winner out of the two as it has better & bigger display, smooth user interface, better camera and good performing quad core processor. Although its pricier than Karbonn S1 Titanium by Rs 3000/- but believe me this little extra money is worth spending if you want a better quality product. Also check Spice Mi-530 Stellar Pinnacle and Xolo A1000.
