Round 1 goes to Micromax A116 Canvas HD

One device that has caught the attention of smartphone lovers in India lately is the Micromax A116 Canvas HD. The phone was launched earlier this week, just ahead of a big Samsung announcement, the launch of the Galaxy Grand.

The A116 leads by a huge margin
The disparity in price and specs is quite stark. Both devices sport a 5-inch display, run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, have 1GB of RAM and an 8MP camera on the back. But the similarities end there. Even though the screen size is the same on both phones, the Micromax handset has a 720p resolution while the Galaxy Grand is stuck on a 2010-esque 800 x 480 WVGA resolution. This is a particularly suspect move on part of the Korean company.
“Samsung is stupid for sticking a low resolution display on a mid range smartphone, the price is is not that low that they couldn't provide at least a qHD screen on the Galaxy Grand. Bad decision and the sales will show,” one commenter said.

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
