Micromax A116 quad core handset will soon hit the Indian markets along with the Samsung Galaxy Grand. The difference is brand versus features and of course the price. No points for guessing, well we all know that A116 is the cheapest.

Here is a comparison between the A116 and Grand this will help you understand better the features and the differences.

Display
Both the handsets sport a  5 inch screen but Galaxy Grand is with 800×480 pixels TFT screen and MMX A116 Canvas HD is with 1280×720 IPS screen. Clearly A116 is the winner.

Operating system and Memory
No difference between the two both handsets as both come with 1GB RAM and loaded with Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 OS.

Internal Storage + External storage
Galaxy Grand wins here with 8GB internal storage as MMX A116 comes with 4GB storage. But for many the storage space is not that important. The Grand supports micro SD card up to 64GB whereas A116 supports max 32GB cards. Grand clearly wins.

Processor
Both handsets come powered by a 1.2GHz processor however its dual core on Grand and its quad core on Canvas HD. Canvas HD wins.

Not much difference in thickness and dimensions. The grand is 143.7x77x9.6 mm whereas A116 is 144x74x10.7mm.

Micromax A116 versus Samsung Galaxy Grand

Camera
Both handsets come with 8 MP rear camera however A116 comes with a front VGA camera and Grand with a 2MP front camera. Grand no doubt has better cameras, but difference is not too much.

Battery
A 2000 mAh battery powers the Grand as well as the A116.

Price
The Samsung Galaxy Grand is priced at Rs. 21,500 and Canvas HD at Rs. 15,000.

Overall the Canvas HD seems a better option, 5K cheaper with more processing power and nearly the same specs as seen on the Grand and with excellent display resolution.

So which one would you want to go with?
