I never knew that switching from Symbain OS based Smart phone to Android based Smart phone, will turn me into an Android phone/Phablet maniac. It all started back in 2010 when I replaced my Nokia 5233 smart phone with Samsung galaxy SL. From Then
To till now Google has delivered several upgrades of android OS, I was on Froyo initially and now on Jelly bean, and now waiting for Key Lime Pie ;-)

August 2012 when Micromax introduced Canvas (A100) I was very excited with the specifications of the phone even though it was not top of the line. And from then Micromax never looked back and introduced better and better smart phones.
I have already spent enough time with Canvas (A100), Canvas 2 (A110) and Canvas HD (A116). So now I think that I can share my views with all of you.

Before starting the review I would like to make this clear that I am not associated with Micromax other than as its customer. I also used other Indian brands like Karbonn and Celkon as well, however due to several other reasons they never inspired me to write a review. All views are my personal. I am not a regular reviewer so please excuse me for any mistake. Feedbacks are welcome.

Key Specifications:
1.2 Ghz Quad core Processor
12.7 cm (5") HD Display with 1280*720 pixels screen resolution
16.7 Million Color Depth
Android Jelly bean 4.1.2
PowerVR SGX544 GPU
8.0 MP Primary Camera with LED Flash
2.0 MP Front Camera
Connectivity 3G, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, USB 2.0
2000 mAh battery

For Pictures, 3d view Please click on the link below:
http://www.micromaxinfo.com/mobiles/smartphones/canvas/A116-canvas-HD

Retail Packaging:
You get a standard retail packaging for A116. The packaging is good but nothing extra ordinary. You get the handset, earphones, travel charger, USB to micro USB cable, warranty statement and user guide. The SAR value as mentioned on the box pack is 0.472 W/kg. The MRP as mentioned on Box is 17,499 but you get it for Rs. 13,990 from Snapdeal.com.

Pro: Quality of contents is good.
Con: Ear phones are not in-ear type and very basic.

Design and Build:
The design is great and A116 looks and feels premium. Build quality is good and finishing is great of A116. However build is not as solid as >=20K worth mobile phones
Due to low cost of this mobile. Note that build is GOOD and you don't pay ridiculously high amount only for greater build. Please note that this is not a phone it is a Phablet, that means it is larger than regular phones (4.5") and shorter than regular tablets (7").
As it has got a great 5" HD screen along with 3 capacitive touch buttons at the bottom it is a huge phone. Mind it and Please have a real time experience of this phone before buying this Phablet. Make sure you need a Phablet not a phone in this case. Because I have gone with the screen size craziness and also used 7" Phablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 P3100) for 3 Months. It is pleasure to use big screen phones but not convenient and comfortable to hold and carry. So if you do not have larger hands or you do not have experience with >4.3" screen phone I will not advise you to get phone >4.7" screen.

Pro: Looks premium, Good build, Great finish, Great Sensitivity for all 3 touch buttons.
Con: Could have used On-screen buttons instead of capacitive buttons at the bottom to make the device shorter and easy to hold like A100, Nexus 4.
Hit or Miss: Dual tone body colors (Black- Front, Dull White - Back)

Display:
The display is GREAT. It has an excellent screen resolution of 1280x720p which translate into 293.72ppi. Screen is sharp and color reproduction is great. The text, video and pictures, Web, apps look great on it.
It is an LCD unit and different than AMOLED screens. I am not a fan of AMOLED screens due to over saturated color reproduction (It's a personal opinion).
Viewing angles are good, no issues with viewing angles.

Pro: Great high resolution 5" LCD, Sharp Text and Images, Natural color reproduction.
Con: No Gorilla Glass protection.

Processor: It has got a great 1.2 GHz Quad core Processor (Cortex A7 Mediatek MTK MT6589). Now most of you will start comparing Mediatek with other well-known brands. I will not go in details like benchmarks and high end gaming capabilities ETC because i know most of us are not looking at this device for chart buster performance. However i can ensure you that it is definitely better than any budget/mid-range mobile processor available in the market. Thanks to the powerful PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU, It can smoothly play most of the high end games, if it is compatible and you can install it in limited phone storage. It plays 1080p videos smoothly without any issues. Also applications, Web and animations are smooth on this device.
It has got an excellent balance between power efficiency and performance. That means people thinking that 2000mh battery is not enough will be impressed with its power efficiency. Also Mediatek is not a new brand and most of the budget/mid-range handsets now a day are powered by Mediatek single/dual/quad core processors.

Pro: Quad core CPU, PowerVR SGX544MP GPU, 1080p Video Playback, and Power Efficient.
Con: Cortex A7 based CPU, Cortex A9 base CPU could have been better.

Benchmark scores:
Quadrant: 4039, 2nd time – 3881.
Anututu: 13131, 2nd time – 12613.
Nenamark2: 40.5fps.
Linpack: single 37, multi 100.

Camera:
It has got an 8MP primary camera with an LED flash, the camera quality is average, but it is better than what I have seen in other budget handsets which includes A110 as well. There is a front 2MP camera for video chat as well. The camera of 8MP resolution can record videos in 1080p resolution (3gp video format) and it also plays it smoothly without any lags. The auto focus is good. There is no panorama option. Please do not expect too much with the camera.

Pro: 1080p video capture, 2MP front cam
Con: Soft pictures (Quality is not that sharp); LED Flash is not that great, no panorama.

RAM:
It's good to see at least 1GB ram in this phone. Most budget phone comes with only 512MB of RAM. I think 1GB ram is more than enough for an average/moderate user.
Applications, UI, OS, and Multitasking work smoothly without any issues or Lag.

Pro: 1GB is more than enough for average/moderate user.
Con: None.

Battery:
It has got a 2000mh which easily lasts for a day with moderate usage with dual SIM.I have SIM 1 with 3G always on for my data needs and SIM 2 with 2G for Voice calls. I typically use phone for about 15-20 minutes of Calls, 30 minutes of Gaming, and around 3-3.5 hours of Internet browsing and Facebook and 2-3 hours of audio playback.

Pro: Easily lasts for a day, Less time for charging.
Con: None.

2G/3G/ WIFI/Bluetooth/GPS:
All the connectivity options work without any issues. However GPS takes some time to get locked.

Pro: HSPA+ (DL-21Mbps, UL-11Mbps), BT 4.0
Con: Dual band GSM and Single band HSPA, Will not work in most countries.

Call Quality/Network reception:
Call quality and Network reception is good, I did not find any issues for the same.
In call volume is good and it is clear and loud even at max volume level. Speaker phone volume is average for both Calls and Multimedia. However at high volume on multimedia playback the quality is neither great nor more than average.

Pro: Good Call quality and Network reception
Con: Speaker phone volume and quality could have been better.

Multimedia Playback:
All kind of multimedia playback is pleasure on this phone. It plays HD contents smoothly and Images, Videos are sharp on the screen. Color reproduction is also great. Even audio quality is above average. However using better quality ear phones with PowerAmp application allows you to have great music experience.

Pro: Great audio/video/images/web experience.
Con: Speaker is average.

Sensors:
Standard sensors like Proximity, Motion, Gravity, Light sensors are present, which works great. Micromax has skipped an important sensor which is Magnetic sensor. Due to unavailability of Magnetic sensor, Compass does not work at all and point to point navigation also does not work correctly. However Google map works correctly with mobile data, only catch is you do not get your correct direction. There is an LED notification light as well.

Pro: All Sensors work great, LED notification.
Con: No Magnetic sensor.

Storage:
The only disappointment I have with this phone is the internal storage provided with this phone which is 1.77GB user available out of onboard 4GB of storage. However you have an option to extend the storage via Micro SD card of up to 32GB but all apps and games get stored on the internal storage which is the limitation (1.77 GB). You can use External storage to store Music, Videos, Documents, Images ETC.

Pro: Expandable storage via Micro SD up to 32GB.
Con: Internal storage is very low for such a capable phone; at least 8GB is expected.

Verdict:
So why should I buy or not buy this phone? Why should I buy Chinese rebranded mobile. What about after sales service? There are number of options available in the market when we talk about budget phones, and day by day the numbers are increasing.

If your budget is around 15K, I don't see any direct competition from a stable brand in India which offers more than Micromax A116@13990Rs. If you are not a heavy gamer (Low internal storage will disappoint you) and live with the after sales service of Micromax (Takes more time for repairs), believe me Guys right now it is a steal.

Other Quad cores: Zopo 950+, Zopo 810, Xolo Q800, UMI X2, Jiayu G4.

            I received this product on 28th March 2012, and for the past 3 days I have used it a lot. From the initial usage I can say the phone is awesome.
            The built is superb, touch sensitivity is great, colors and images appear crisp. Battery life is fine. All in all I would say a superb effort from Micromax. Believe me I have become a fan of theirs....
            Keep it up! In one line 'This phone can'

                If you think this is a budget phone because of the price? Think again!
                To start with, the first power up and you will notice its large IPS screen come to life, probably the best around beating even the heavy budget phones. With its Quadcore Processor and GPU everything works without strain.
                Whats a general problem with high end Android phones is stability. So after downloading some intensive apps from the store it was up for a real test.
                Running Skype over 2G connection I was able to make a video call! With pretty good clarity and not too many framedrops. Im still loading apps and they run together and still waiting for my phone to crash!
                So for the price don't expect very fancy features like HDMI out or Dolby stereo speakers but it has a decent camera. Don't expect Super SLR photography, out of focus sections are a bit grainy. The shutter is quick and responsive.
                Battery meets my needs quite well and I run my GPRS on always and have a low signal at my apartment, lasts about a day. Using WiFi instead can make that battery life a lot longer.
                The phone is quite slim and is not too bulgy in the pocket.
                At first impression people think its an expensive phone... they play with it a bit and ask "is this a sam.... OMG its Micromax!"
                Anyway just note that you may not get a screen guard in the pack, perhaps because the phone is new and its still getting made.
                Of course the Android Jelly bean brings so much to the phone, even the voice input works in an offline mode (of course you need to initially download it)
                The email app is really good. So no need to pull out a bulky laptop at the waiting lounge.
                My experience has been better than expected an am proud that an Indian brand really is giving world giants a run for their money.
                The finish is also great and in no way indicates that it is budget phone, besides it also has 1 year warranty in case anything on the inside goes wrong.

                        HARDWARE - Very fast, capable of multitasking, tried Temple run, EA speed raser, frontline commando. Very good GPU.
                        SOFTWARE - Well Android at its best.
                        PERFORMANCE - Excellent

                        What I miss is - Need more internal storage.

                        I have not faced any issue till date.

                          I bought this phone from Snapdeal and it's just great...migrating from samsung to micromax

                          The camera ,built quality, resolution , touch experience is great. Processing does not seem to have any lag with around 20 apps sunning at same time.
                          i have installed around 50 apps and it still has a lot of memory.
                          Only problem i found with it that its internal memory is not enough for VERY high end gaming such as NFS Most wanted which needs 2055 MB of storage.
                          Other HD games such as Temple Run2 , Dead trigger, Gears & Guts just work fine without a glitch.

                            Very nice product... So many friends were waiting to see it in their hands. And Finally everyone after seeing my piece likes this product by micromax.

                            Its the best piece in this price range. After using it for a week. I am still loving it ... Just click on install application and the next moment application is installed.

                            It is continuously displaying "SEARCHING FOR GPS" even when I am in Open Area and Open to Sky, also I have turned ON the GPS Satellites in Location Access Menu but there is no Use.

                            Also the phone touch screen is behaving erratically during Charging and not responding properly

                            The phone is having Manufacturing Defect

                              Overall build quality and design are so good that you fall in love with the phone at the first look... :)

                              Navigation and controls are smooth as butter. Thanks to the project butter at the core of the jelly bean OS....Camera quality is nice.

                              Runs various high end Games and HD videos smoothly without any lags.

                              In my opinion, this mobile is a complete package and a must buy for the first time Android Smartphone buyers... :)

                                Well I've Been using this product from a week now and its totally worth the money.
                                The touch and the resolution beats most Samsung phones hands down.
                                The user interface is pretty cool too ..
                                Super fast when it comes to multi taksing ..

                                The only con is its back cover, that's too slippery, so that's a drawback .
                                Another thing is the phone getting heated, when u use the phone for too long the phone gets heated upwwhich can create trouble for people who tends to use their phones for a longer duration of time.

                                Camera is not the best but it certainly is not the worst, manageable and the music too is good :)

                                The company could have given a better headset but then again the price comes into picture.
                                Browsing speed is good.

                                In the end I'd just say that the phones delivers everything that it promises and its worth your money.

                                Thnx.

                                    It may not be great in all aspects but provide total value for the money that you are paying. Great Product.

                                        The mobile is not as per my expectation. Looks like Micromax released this product in haste. Within 1hr the OS crashed and there is no customer care to support.

                                        This phone just makes up for its price. Though of late, its clearly seen that MMX is charging for brand as well when compared to Karbonn Titanium S5.
                                        But kudos to MMX. Atleast you ve given other big brands a run for their money.

                                          Good performance in this budget... much better than worthless phone like Samsung Grand.

                                          It si very good. But some times it crashes n restarts. I got the phone 2 weeks back and around 5 times it crashed till now. Hope future updates will fix it even though booting is fast. And the phone is awsome

                                            Product in one word is awesome.

                                            Micromax proves that if India wants, can produce much better products with a reasonable rate comparing with similar products of Korean Brands.

                                            But it should be accompanied with one Screen Protector & one good quality Leather flap cover (may be against payment).

                                            Emphasis on the quality of Head Phone.

                                            Suggest, which bluetooth headset we should buy.

                                              I was pleased to have received the mobile that i waited for over 3 months. At 1st sight i could easily notice that the mobile has more sleek and refined design. The thickness is made less and its ergonomically better than the A110. The display is very good and the quality of touch is exceptional.I was in a dilemma on what to buy Samsung Grand or A116. But i am sure i bought the right product. Samsung grand will take ages to give this performance. The competitive pricing gives Micromax its edge.

                                              The mobile is very user friendly and can be easily handled. The battery is fair and the display and camera outperforms all its competitors for the same price. On an overall i rate this product as 5/5 and i feel if anyone is looking forward to buy a mobile for less than 15k, trust me its not a Sony, neither is it a Samsung that will give you the value for money, its the micromax A116 HD.
