Micromax A116 Canvas HD  – The 5-inch Phablet that has been trending in Indian Smartphone market for the past two weeks. I haven’t used it, I haven’t even seen it, Yet i love it. With almost 9000 devices sold out on the first day, it is proved that Indian smartphone lovers are already in love with it.  What’s so special about this Micromax Canvas HD?  what makes Micromax A116 Canvas HD to be loved as such? Why is Micromax A116 Canvas HD so famous in India?

1. Price:

This is the first and foremost reason that makes me to love the new Micromax A116 Canvas HD. Being an iPhone user (just 3Gs 😉 ) I’ve wondered several times when People from my region can experience something like this. When my dad took the iPhone out of his pocket, I saw people amazing Oh is this the iPhone???. I wish there should be something come to India to fulfill the desires of such people and it came now – That’s Micromax A116 Canvas HD – People, who so far aspired to use a high-tech mobile phone something like iPhone or big Android phones like Samsung Galaxy S3 , have got a phone in their budget.

2. Size:

Human beings are tend to change so fast and The size of Mobile phones in the market are clear example for this. Few years back, there was a competition to release small sized phones, People used to call it as cute, compact, handy and much more similar terms but now the trend has changed a lot. Now its time for Big phones – People don’t bother whether they can hold the phone in one hand or not, all they want is a big phone – just to show case that they have a BIG phone. So this makes Micromax A116 Canvas HD – the 5-inch giant, a perfect phone for budget users in India.

3. Quad-core fever:

No one cares how fast the device works, all they see is Quad-core. This is the so-called Quad-core fever. When Apple launched iPhone 5, everyone was expecting a quad-core processor in it but Apple launched it with a Dual core one – but it was fast enough to compete with the Quad-core smartphones in the market. Despite these facts, Specs always talk loud more than Performance and its true with Micromax A116 Canvas HD too , so the word “quad-core” in the specs sheet drives the Indian consumers to buy it with an assumption that its a powerful package.

4. Successful Predecessor:

This is not the first in Canvas series, this phablet has a big brother Micromax A110 Canvas 2 (Not HD) and this is almost out-of-stock in many shops for many months. So this creates a huge demand and the demand makes people to think the product is so good that it cannot be found in the market. It could be really good or may be bad but it doesn’t matter – all they see is a most wanted product and when a successor comes for such a most wanted product – its assumed that it should far better than the former one and most of the times it is.

Canvas HD was expected too much before its launch and its always ‘sold out’ when someone tries to buy Micromax Canvas HD online. Those who are lucky to have their hands on the device are satisfied with its performance though it can’t be put against Apple’s iPhone or Samsung’s Galaxy S3. Ultimately you get for what you pay, but when someone is not ready to pay 30K+ to experience a seamless smartphone performance, This Micromax Canvas HD is where they should end up.
