Micromax launched the Canvas HD yesterday to an overwhelming demand from consumers and the phone sold out within moments of the official launch. A combination of good specifications and an attractive price of Rs 13,999 is something us price conscious Indians cannot resist and the demand is not a big surprise.

We compare the specifications of both the phones and help you decide.

Both the phones have dual-SIM capabilities and sport a 5-inch IPS (1280×720 pixels) display. In terms of processing power the Canvas HD is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Mediatek MT6589 processor, 1GB RAM, while the A1000 is powered by a 1 GHz dual-core MediaTek MT6577 processor and a 1GB RAM. The batteries on both too are similar and only 100mAH differentiates the two. While on paper four cores are obviously more powerful than two, the processor on the Canvas HD is a Cortex A7 and the one on A1000 is a Cortex A9. What this essentially means is that when the performance of the phones is compared, the benchmarks will be nearly the same. But having said that, the Cortex A7 cores on the Canvas HD should consume less battery when handling the phone tasks than the Cortex A9 cores on the A1000.

In terms of internal and external storage, both the phones have 4GB internal storage and have a microSD slot that supports a memory card of up to 32GB. The cameras on both the phones too are same as both of them have an 8-megapixel camera at the back. The only difference is that the Canvas HD has a 2-megapixel camera in the front while the A1000 only has a 1.2-megapixel camera.

Until we review the phones and see how they work in the real world, it won’t be fair to choose one phone over the other. So if you are in the market for a phone and are finding it difficult to choose between the two, keep an eye out for our upcoming reviews.
