Micromax Canvas 4 A210

Micromax has released its new leading device — the Fabric 4 A210. The company lastly raised Micromax Canvas 4 A210the veil of secrecy around its heavily-hyped device at a meeting in Delhi these days. Micromax had already made device available for pre-order on its site with a arranging amount of Rs 5000 from Twenty eighth of July and has allegedly obtained 11,500 pre-bookings. With a nasty front side and back, the body is structurally strengthened by an aluminum remove running along the sides, which also imparts it better appearance than other Micromax Mobile Phones.

The Jelly Bean based device is operated by a quad-core MediaTek CPU and 1 GB of RAM. Inner storage space of 16 GB is further accented with up to 32 GB more via microSD card. The top side of the cellphone is enriched by a 5″ HD IPS display, so the watching perspectives and colors should be good. In addition to a 13 mp back photographic camera, there is a 5 mp camera on top of the display. This is a dual-SIM smart phone with 3G and Wi-Fi. There is also a “Blow to Unlock” function using which, the customer can discover the cellphone by ruining air onto it. In the same way, it also facilitates actions. Of course, we think these are gimicky features at best. Here are the handset’s specifications:

Android operating system 4.2.1 (Jelly Bean), Search engines Play Store.

Dual-SIM, Double stand by, GSM (2G): 900/1800/1900/850 MHz, UMTS (3G): 2100 MHz.

5.7″ (H) x 2.9″ (W) x 0.35″ (8.9 mm) (D), 158 grms.

With a check size of 5″, the Fabric 4 will contest with the recently-launched Lava Eye 504Q, Zen Ultrafone 701HD, and the more expensive Panasonic P51 with same requirements, with the latter having a 2500 mAh battery power. However, the Fabric 4 comes with 16 GB of internal storage space, which is certainly a comfort as as opposed to modest 4 GB that comes with the other two devices. The Micromax Canvas 4 A210 is costing Rs 18,000, which seems to be somewhat affordable for now, especially as it comes with the free turn cover. However, we are sure that the opponents will soon come up with same devices at prices lower than Rs 15,000.

Micromax A100

Micromax goes into the “Phablet” section with the Micromax A100. The company has decided for Micromax A100a simple and stylish design with a large 4.9? show in the top side which comes protected with a perfectly-fit show guard out of the box. Like the A90, the Micromax A100 does not have any physical control buttons towards the top side. The returning cover of the cellphone is created of soft rubberized which we liked as it provides hold and protection to the cellphone.

Overall, the cellphone is a bit heavy, but is well-built. Using it with one side does take some getting used to due to its size!


The cellphone features a 1GHz (single core) Qualcomm Scorpion chipset ARM V7 processor with Adreno 200 GPU which pleased us. There is 512MB of RAM and 4GB of inner storage extended up to 32GB. It has double SIM support with double Stand by.

On the top side is a large 4.92? TFT capacitive LCD show with 480×854 quality which is a joy to use mainly due to its dimension. Touch reaction is excellent, best in this price segment.

On the returning side of Micromax A100 can be found a 5MP photographic camera with LED show which is capable of documenting 480p video clips and on the top side is a 0.3MP photographic camera. The cellphone is operated by a 2000 mAh Li-ion battery pack.


The Micromax A100 has a 5 mega-pixel back photographic camera with LED show, which catches reasonable quality pictures in bright-light. Low illumination conditions lead to a bit cleaned out photos, with obvious graininess. However, video clips, even though being taken at 480p, look good. The photographic camera offers a number of features such as visibility value, field ways and show ways etc. to do around with. The cellphone also has a 0.3 mega-pixel front side photographic camera which can be used to create movie calling through applications like Skype, though movie calling cannot be created over 3G.

Display, Sound and Internet

As mentioned above the show is a joy to use as it is massive! Though colors do seem a bit cleaned out but nothing too disturbing, the dimension more than makes up for that! Some may feel that the quality of the show in addition to the low ppi do not create it fun, but we were more than pleased with it. Outdoor visibility is low and you’ll have to do around with the illumination configurations to create visibility better.

The Audio quality cellphone is frustrating, especially during movie play-back. Low measure and loud audio effects it clip play-back meet. The audio quality is average at best.

The stock internet browser on the device is reasonable, again due to the large screen! It is sleek but touch to zoom ability and kinetic scrolling were lagging a bit. We would suggest installing the Google Firefox internet browser to get the best surfing around encounter from the show.
