The Canvas 2 A110 has established its self as a good value for money option under the Rs.10,000 price bracket. This begs the question as to how does it fare against a similarly featured smartphone from a popular brand. Is there any dual SIM handset that manages to come close to the A110 in terms of features without having to spend a whole lot more? After looking at the offerings in the market, we find that the Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562 is the closest priced handset that comes close to the features of the A110. And what better way to settle this than pit both of them in a grudge match. Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562 – Rs.14,900We haven’t put the S Duos through its paces yet, but there’s still a lot we can derive from the specifications alone. For starters, the handset is priced a good 5K higher than the Micromax, so we expect it to put on a better show, at least on paper. The S7562 does have a smaller 4-inch screen, but with the same resolution as the A110, we have much higher pixel count. This should make text and images sharper. It also uses a standard TFT display instead of the IPS used on the A110. The smaller screen also allows for the S Duos to be lighter and more compact as well. Samsung has slipped up big time here by not including an ambient light sensor. This could be the deal breaker for some as at this price, one would expect it to be a given.
