Micromax Canvas 4 features
Micromax Canvas HD A116 was a phenomenal success in Indian smartphone market because it got powerful quad-core processor and a decent HD screen of resolution 720p at low price. Knowing the background of the device, we expected Canvas 4 to be another benchmark set by Micromax in smartphone market. We expected it to have a more powerful processor, better design and a 1080p screen while staying within Rs 20,000 mark. But Micromax had something else in mind!
Inspite of getting everything new in the new device, Micromax worked on the few months old device Micromax Canvas HD A116, in order to make it more efficient and hence got an evolved device Micromax Canvas 4 A210 boasting a beautiful 5.0 inch HD display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels same as of its predecessor but with slight improvements which can be easily noticed while watching the screen working, the graphics are even better from Canvas HD.

The company gave a glossy plastic body similar to Canvas HD, but with better finishing to Micromax Canvas 4 along with a beautiful aluminium cover around the screen worth Rs 3000/- (added in package).

The new device sleeps eventually once you get your sight away from it, while watching videos. If you look somewhere else, the device will pause automatically. Another feature it got just like S4 is while talking over the device just flip it back and your speaker will get switch on, on its own.
