Samsung is one of the most dominant players in the Smartphone Market and enjoys a good market share but Micromax is also catching up. Canvas 4 was the last biggest launch by Micromax this season. It was launched in July while Samsung Galaxy Quattro was released way somewhere around in April. Both the smartphones are priced in the Rs. 17,000 range.With price point now clear only distinct features in both the smart phones can help the customers decide which Smartphone they want to own.
Both the smart phones have a good grip and have a firm hold due to shape of their bodies. The Canvas 4 phone is thinner as compared to its competitor but the Samsung Quattro phone is still sleeker and lighter which makes it more portable.
With a wide range of bright colours combined with high resolution imaging the Micromax canvas 4 is better than Samsung Quattro. Its 5-inch IPS LCD display that has 1280* 720 pixel and a pixel density of 294ppi makes most phone lovers drool. Last but not the least its Corning Gorilla Glass gives added protection to the phone. The size and HD resolution make the Canvas 4 ideal for watching videos and surfing the web while on the move. The phone offers users bright colours and sharp, well defined images.
On the other hand Samsung has given the Galaxy Grand Quattro a 4.7-inch display that has a resolution of 800*480 pixels and a pixel density of 199ppi. What is lacking is a high definition screen which would makes it an almost perfect Smartphone.
The Canvas 4 has a 13-megapixel primary snapper and a 5-megapixel secondary front facer. The Samsung Quattro sports a 5-megapixel rear facing camera and 0.3-megapixel front facing camera. Canvas 4 records 1080p video at 30fps while Samsung’s offering captures 720p video at 30fps.
Both the smart phones come with features like geo tagging, smile and face detection, auto focus, LED flash etc..
The Galaxy Phone runs on a 1.2 GHz quad core Cortex A5 CPU as compared to the Canvas 4 which is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Cortex A7 processor which makes it slightly more powerful than its counterpart.
Micromax Canvas 4 comes with 16 GB of internal storage that can be expandable externally with another 32 GB while the Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro comes only with 8 GB of built-in memory, it has also comes built it with support for external memory expansion by up to 64 GB.
Android’s Jelly Bean platform, currently the most functional and user friendly operating system in the market powers both handsets. While the Samsung Quattro sports an older version of the build, version 4.1.2, the Canvas 4 is powered by version 4.2.1. Of course, both phones will receive upcoming updates of the operating system too.
