Micromax created a lot of hype by not disclosing the specs and the price of Micromax Canvas 4 handset. Consumers were expecting something better than the Micromax A116 instead it’s the same stuff with some modified features.

I had written an article on wiko heaven stairway that looked exactly similar to the Canvas 4 and surprisingly the specs are almost similar. It’s an OEM model other brands (worldwide) may be rebranding it like Wiko, Micromax and probably some more.

But the fact is Canvas 4 is a big disappointment. We were expecting a MediaTek turbo version. But unfortunately it with the same hardware that powers the MMX A116. The IPS screen is 5 inches with tru-HD resolution. There is a 13MP camera on rear and a front 5MP. It’s dual SIM with dual standby mode. Micromax is also giving a free flip cover.

About 11,000 consumers had pre-booked the Micromax A210 and I guess many of them will hit the refund button. The kind of specs the A210 Canvas 4 has it should be priced 1K to 1.5K more than the Micromax A116.

Canvas 4 refund

As mentioned the pricing should be close to A116 and there was no need to create such a hype with such specs. Karbonn S6, Ginoee E6 and the iBerry Auxus Nuclea N1 seems a better option for the price.
