Easily the most awaited budget handset for the Indian market, the Micromax A116 Canvas HD is finally here and already is proving very difficult to find. Micromax managed to sell over 9,000 units on the first day itself and the demand seems to be only rising, and for good reason. This is the first handset, ever, in the sub-Rs. 15,000 price bracket to feature an HD IPS screen and a quad-core SoC. These are pretty remarkable specifications for a budget Android handset and it certainly looks very tempting on paper. But, as we’ve seen in the past, glowing specifications on paper needn’t necessarily translate to good real world performance. The A110 didn’t exactly blow our minds. Sure, it was a good option given the price, but the build and finish seemed unrefined and didn’t measure up to the competition in that respect. Can the A116 raise the bar for budget droids when it comes to build quality and aesthetics, and not just impressive specs? Let’s find out. Unboxing the Micromax A116 Canvas HD Design and build Compared to the A110, we’re happy to report the A116 scores much higher in the build quality department. The front looks similar, but the rear cover now has a glossy finish with a fine sprinkle of pixie dust. This gives it a nice shine and also manages to conceal quite a bit of fingerprints. The entire handset bears a striking resemblance to the HTC One X, so it scores high on aesthetics as well. The battery cover is easy to remove thanks to the soft plastic. Inside, we have two GSM SIM slots with the microSD card slot in between. None of these are hot-swappable and you’ll need to remove the battery to insert the cards.
