As mentioned above, the Titanium Wind W4 is retailing on Amazon India priced at Rs 5,999. Micromax s Windows Phone, on the other hand, was launched in June for Rs 6,500.
Both the smartphones flaunt 4-inch displays with WVGA resolution (800×480 pixels).
The smartphones are powered by Snapdragon processors clocked at 1.2GHz. But the difference lies in the number of cores as Karbonn s phone is powered by a dual-core chipset, while Micromax s smartphone is powered by a quad-core chipset. Similarly, Micromax s smartphone features 1GB of RAM, while the Karbonn s smartphone lags behind with 512MB of RAM.
Again the two smartphones have the same features in this department. At the back is a 5-megapixel camera with flash. On the front, the smartphones feature a VGA camera.
The Canvas Win W092 edges ahead in this department with 8GB of internal storage. In comparison, the Titanium Wind W4 has 4GB internal storage. Both the smartphones however have a microSD card slot to expand the storage.
The Canvas Win W092 and the Titanium Wind W4 both run on Windows Phone 8.1.
Both the phones are closely matched in terms of specifications and features. The Canvas Win W092 however offers a bit more in terms of processing power, RAM, and internal storage, which is why it is priced slightly more than the Titanium Wind W4.
