Micromax Canvas 2 A110 Review

Overview of Micromax A110 Canvas 2

Micromax Canvas 2 A110 is a treat for all those Android users on a tight budget looking to go big with their phones. Android OS for smartphones has invaded the market in a way, that other similar operating systems either look too costly or depleted. Essentially, Micromax A110 aka Canvas 2 is an Android phone that comes packed with IPS screen, an 8 MP primary camera and powerful dual core Cortex-A9 processor. Like other Android handsets in the market, proximity sensor, accelerometer and GPS are also part of the package. Surprisingly, the price of this phone (as listed on some websites and shopping portals) revolves around INR 9000 to 10000. We have to admit that in a price like this, the phone has some awesome features that you’ll find similar to costly Samsung, HTC and LG Android handsets.

Micromax A110 Canvas 2 Design and Build Quality

The Micromax Canvas 2 A110 comes with Android Ice Cream Sandwich on board. Just as a reminder here, Ice Cream Sandwich is currently considered to be the latest Android OS upgrade since Android 4.1 and 4.2 Jellybean hasn’t made it (officially) to many handsets in India and world over. Although the phone, Micromax A110, has some striking look and feel similarities to Samsung Galaxy and Note line of Android phones (and we aren’t sure if Samsung will sue Micromax for this act of “similarity”), but this phone has a class of its own. The screen is IPS LCD with capability to display 16M colors at a whopping 480 x 854 pixels. Also, the screen size is 5 inches that makes it “bigger and better” for some while keeping it “too big for a phone” for others.

The outlook of the phone is pretty OK but, honestly, could have been much better. The silver chrome outline, around the screen, seems to be made of a cheaper material. Same is the case with power and volume rocker buttons on side that are made from the same material. The primary camera of the phone is located on the back side with a slight eruption outwards. This reminds us of HTC Desire HD camera since the placement of camera lens as well as the flash is exactly the same. This canvassing out of the camera also makes us believe that users might be extra careful while placing their phones on flat surfaces. The back side of the phone is made from plastic but feels more durable. Although these are all the pluses for the A110, but terrible battery life, viewing angle banding and consistent lag are quite a turn off for super Android fans and users.

Micromax A110 Canvas 2 Camera, Music Player and Memory

The phone boasts of an 8 MP powerful camera. However, some basic tests and user review puts shabby shadows on the performance. The camera is good at snapping pictures but you might just lose the “moment” due to the lag that seems to be apparent in every app and menu of this phone. The phone can record videos at 720p, but again, with a MediaTek chip, the element of lag and discomfort is dominant. Apart from this, the phone can comfortably play videos up to 720p. We aren’t sure if Micromax has placed a bar or lock on FPS, but rooting the phone and tinkering might be revealing. The phone comes with native Android Ice Cream Sandwich gallery and you can use different modes to view photos and videos. The audio playback is also average but you might be able to tweak that with an app or two available in the Google Play Store. The phone ships with an internal memory of 4 GB. From this memory, 2 GBs are dedicated for user and rest of the memory is used by Android system and app execution.


The Micromax A110 supports Edge, GPRS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The values for these connectivity features are the same as native Android Ice Cream Sandwich. We didn’t face any problem while testing the phone for calls Wi-Fi connectivity etc.


Micromax A110 Canvas 2 is quite a handsome deal for an under INR 10000 Range. However, this phone might not be impressive for those who know Android inside out and want a lag free experience.

Many of the drawbacks mentioned here worth improving your knowledge and education, others are simply features like all mobiles are of certain type with only certain functionality. Facebooc contact phto sync is a software thing not hardware, so even if you are facing issues, that can be easily solved by many software tweaks like rooting etc. why not try Sync.me from Play Store?! =))


24-01-2013 16:29:00

I tried changing settings in video and saw that maximum recording resolution is only 480p. Can anyone tell how to change settings to make video recording 720p? And is it possible or not?

Micromax Superfone Canvas 2 A110 Review Well, after owning and using it for almost 20 days now, here's the review. I have been using Android phones since a long time and tried all major companies so far. So far, Its perfect for what a sub-10K Android Smartphone should look like. Without getting into too much of sentence writing, here's the final review in pointers.. Positives: 1. Massive 5-inch screen 2. Dual-core 1 GHz CPU 3. Decent 8 MP camera with dual LED flash. 0.3MP secondary camera. 4. Dual Sim (GSM + GSM) with dual standby 5. Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich 6. Phone can be rooted which is good. I immediately rooted this phone after getting it and removed the bloatware / nonsense apps that Micromax supplies. 7. Supports USB OTG i.e USB On-The-Go. 8. Plays 720p videos and video recording is 720p too. 9. Inbuilt internet browser is good. Provides good speed. 3G speed is good too. Negatives: 1. The phone doesn't support all EDGE/GSM bands unlike other phones. This in-turn can show your phone in Roaming with a 'R' symbol appearing in the network icon inspite you being in home network. (Don't worry, you will be charged normal rates by your service provider tioll the time you are in home network). However, the 'R' appearing 24*7 in the icon is irritating. This will primary happen if you have 3G service enabled and your service provider actually borrows it from other service providers and is giving to public. In my case, Vodafone borrows it from Airtel in Bangalore and my SIM shows in roaming 24*7. 2. Low resolution of 854 x 480 which makes images, icons, etc. lose their sharpness. 3. GPS - Doesn't load at all (atleast for me). Keeps searching for GPS till hours. And, network location is not completely accurate. 4. Another important feature that’s missing is an ambient light sensor. 5. UI is not the smoothest 6. No Magnetic sensor (Compass won't work) 7. Music player / quality is very OK. Basic headset provided. Can't expect something like HTC, Samsung or Sony Ericsson. (If you are used to listen to music through a phone always, this phone isn't for you) 8. Not all 3.5 mm jack headphones support this phone (if you're trying to use an external one since supplied headphones are useless) 9. The 512MB RAM makes the phone feel sluggish at times. 10. Unlike other phones, Facebook contacts, pictures don't SYNC automatically to your contacts, even if you enable it. 11. The phone gets extremely HOT if you talk for a longer time or at times during charging. 12. Many a times, application close suddenly due to an error (may be to do with hardware). Others: 1. Total Internal storage (2.53 GB) 2. It is very difficult to see the phone screen in broad daylight and the brightness needs to be adjusted constantly / kept maximum always. 3. Low speaker / loudspeaker volume (can be adjusted in engineer mode, however, becomes irritating if original settings are touched) 4. No option to reboot the phone. You have to switch it off and then switch it on again (time consuming) 5. Though its Andriod 4.0.4, most features, looks, menu appears as Android 2.3.6.. MMX hasn't provided complete features of 4.0.4 as you see in other phones 6. No option to disable 'auto-download images' in Whatsapp Messenger. All images would be automatically downloaded (if you have a limited MB internet connection, you're gonna be irritated).

04-12-2012 06:57:00

i don't find the 512 mb ram in it lag either so it is definitely perfect budget phone as of now! In love with it's smooth touch, brilliant display & the large screen definitely a sure shot to buy if your budget is under 10k.

I bought the Micromax from FlipKart, this Diwali: Pros: 1) The mobile is simply the best and unexpectedly performing the BEST. 2) FlipKart delivered the phone in just 2 working days. The status was being updated time to time. 3) The phone's speed is amazing. 4) I downloaded and installed plenty of games and application from Google Play, including Temple Run and other racing games. 5) The Wi-Fi speed is amazing. 6) Tested GPS...works fine. 7) Camera quality is very good as well. 8) The Graphic is amazing, with crystal clear display. 9) The touch I should say simply competes with Samsung S3...The touch is really superb 10) My frineds are happy seeing the phone and few are planning to buy it. 11) The phone fits in the hand for making calls. Cons 1) Camera while taking pics need to be sturdy and the object shakes then the pic gets blurred on the moving part (eg. hand). But you can try other settings available to get rid of this like (fireworks mode or sport mode).

this is the best budget smart phone. im using it since 7days.Considering its specifications and performance it is pretty good value for your money. If you are looking for high end specs and decent build quality with lesser budget then this is the best bet.For more i've put a complete review here http://sandeepyc.blogspot.in/2012/11/micromaxa110.html
