Micromax A110 Canvas 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2, before I  say a word on this comparison I must say the comparison is completely unfair. I  have been asked few times to compare these two crazy phablets of recent times.  First of all, Galaxy Note 2 is a premium smartphone available at around Rs. 36k.  On the other hand, Micromax A110 is more of a cost effective solution for Note  2. If you can’t afford Galaxy Note 2 you can satisfy yourself with Canvas 2.  Nothing else! In all segments Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is better than MMX Canvas  2.

1. Performance

Built on Android 4.1 JellyBean platform Note 2 is now receiving v4.1.2  JellyBean in just a few months of time after the release. The phablet has been  sold for more than 5 million units according to a report published by Samsung  last month. Hopefully, the figure is more impressive now. It’s available in all  major marketplaces and still doing well. Samsung is planning even bigger Note 3.  However, note 2 is powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 4412 Quad SoC where Cortex A9  cores are clocked at 1.6 GHz and 2 GB RAM. Mali 400-MP GPU is coupled with  Cortex A9 cores which result in furious processing speed be it HD games or  anything else. You can enjoy multitasking. Run several applications at a time  without experiencing any sort of lagging. In contrast to that, Micromax A110 is  India centric  smartphone powered by MediaTek MT6577 SoC that couples 2  Cortex A9 cores clocked at 1 GHz and PowerVR SGX531T GPU. RAM is just 512.  Canvas 2 is good when you consider other smartphones of it’s range. No need to  pick the winner here. It’s all Samsung Galaxy Note 2 here.

Winner: Samsung Galaxy Note 2

2. S-Pen Stylus

The biggest plus point of Note 2 is S-Pen. It’s an advanced stylus that can  perform some exciting operations like Air View where you hover the stylus from  few cm above display and display looks like popping up. Write message with the  stylus instead of typing and send it via Instagram and several other advanced  features are there. S-Pen is the strength of Galaxy Note 2. LG tried the same in  Optimus Vu but the stylus was not too impressive. However, Micromax A110 lacks  stylus like other low-cost smartphones.

Winner: Samsung Galaxy Note 2

3. Display

Be it display quality or display size in both occasions Note 2 win here.  Super AMOLED 5.5 inch 267 ppi HD 720×1280 pixels display of Note 2 is superior  over Canvas 2′s 5 inch 196 ppi FWVGA 480×854 pixels display. Corning Gorilla  Glass 2 coating on Note 2 ensure display is protected from scratches to a great  extent. AGC Sodaline coating on Micromax A110 Canvas 2 is not too impressive in  this area.

Winner: Samsung Galaxy Note 2

4. Camera

Although both these phablets sport rear facing 8 MP camera Note 2 is certain  the best. It equips 8 MP BSI camera that can take impressive images in low  light. LED flash, AF, touch focus, image stabilization (OIS) and several other  features are there. It records full HD 1080p video in presence of simultaneous  HD video and image recording. Micromax A110 sports 8 MP snapper but the quality  of lens and LED flash are not as brilliant as Note 2.  Also the front  camera of Galaxy Note 2 is 1.9 MP whereas Canvas 2 sports VGA front camera.

Winner: Samsung Galaxy Note 2

5. Storage

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is available in 16/32/64 GB storage models and micro SD  card slot expandable up to 64 GB whereas Micromax A110 Canvas 2 is available in  4 GB on-board and 32 GB micro SD card support. Multiple storage options are  always better.

Winner: Samsung Galaxy Note 2

6. Battery

Li-Ion 3100 mAh battery of Note 2 is bigger than Canvas 2′s 2000 mAh battery.  You can expect better backup and standby time.

Winner: Samsung Galaxy Note 2

7. Connectivity

In this segment once again Galaxy Note 2 is better than Micromax Canvas 2.  Note 2 is available in LTE variant to specific carriers as N7105. But Indian  variant of Note 2 is non-LTE.But it supports HSPA+ speed up to 42 Mbps. Canvas 2  lacks LTE and HSPA+ connectivity. It supports HSDPA speed up to 7.2 Mbps.  Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, micro USB are common features. But Galaxy Note 2 support dual  band Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz-5.0 GHz) and  micro USB comes with MHL link as HDMI for  external HDTV connectivity.

Winner: Samsung Galaxy Note 2

8. SIM Card

Here Micromax A110 Canvas 2 gets an edge over it’s rival. It supports dual  sim standby functionality whereas Galaxy Note 2 can house single sim card.

Winner: Micromax A110

Final Words: Micromax A110 Canvas 2 or Samsung Galaxy Note 2

You can see it’s not an ethical comparison as there is huge difference in  price between two handsets. You can buy 3 Canvas 2 and also can save some  thousands of money from the price you are buying Note 2. No doubt, Note 2 is a  premium phablet. Features are awesome. It delivers best user experience. Gaming  compatibility is far better. There is nothing to talk about from that side. But  if you can’t stretch your budget to that far straight away head to Micromax  A110 Canvas 2. It’s cost effective and well performing. So the final winner  of Micromax A110 Canvas 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is Galaxy Note  2 from all aspects. But Canvas 2 in case of tight budget.
