As we all know how Indian Gadgets Market are flooded with low-budget Android smartphone ,Micromax & Karbonn are some of those who are responsible for this . Micromax Canvas 2 and Karbonn A21 with Dual core processor are the smartphones which done a great business in year 2012 and still going great . But this not ends here , 1 week ago Micromax announced his upcoming Canvas smartphone , Micromax Canvas HD A116 sported with Quad Core Processor priced under Rs 15,000 and yesterday Karbonn also unveiled this quad-core handset ,Karbonn S1 Titanium priced at
Rs 13,000 ( Now available at Rs 10,990 ) . So both the handset are competing each other and yet to be arrived in the market . So today we are here for comparing both the handset and let’s see which is better in its specifications and features ..
Micromax Canvas HD Vs Karbonn S1 Titanium :
Canvas is a 5 inch display series ,so Micromax Canvas HD sported a 5 inch HD touch screen having a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels where Karbonn S1 Titanium comes with 4.5 inch High QHD Multi-touch display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels which is quite competing but clearly here Canvas HD wins . Both the handset runs on 1.2 Ghz Quad Core processors with same 1 GB of RAM . If we talk about their internal memory again both the handset have same internal memory ( 4 GB ) but S1 external memory can be extended up to 32 GB where MMX A116 memory can be extended up to 64 GB . This will be the plus point for A116 .
A 8 MP camera is installed on the Canvas HD where on the other hand Karbonn S1 has a 5 MP rear facing camera . Both the handset having front facing camera and also both handset having DUAL SIM connectivity . Again both handset running on same 4.1 Jelly Bean Android OS . This time Micromax powered this device with a 2100 mAh battery where earlier canvas 2 having 2000 mAh battery but Karbonn S1 powered with having a 1600 mAh battery which is quite lesser than A116 but both will perform equally since 5 inch smartphone need more power than a 4.5 inch handset .
S we have prepared a table through which you can compare the both the devices easily .

Rs 2,000 ( Rs 4000 ) in the price of both the handset .
