Difference between Nokia Lumia 620 and Micromax A116 Canvas HD

Key difference: One of the newest smartphones under the brand is the Nokia Lumia 620. Nokia Lumia 620 is aimed at the entry-level buyers who want to try a Windows Phone 8 but can’t afford to spend too much on it. Micromax and Karbonn are two such companies based in the Indian market. The Micromax A116 Canvas HD is the successor to the really popular Micromax A110 Canvas 2 and is better than its predecessor in every way.

Nokia, the Finnish multinational communications and information technology corporation, is known for it highly durable mobile phones. However, with the increasing onset of smartphones, the sales of Nokia’s simple but durable phones started to drop. To offset this trend, Nokia tied up with Microsoft to launch a series of smartphones based on Microsoft’s Windows. This series of phones branded as Nokia Lumia run on Microsoft Windows Mobile 8.

One of the newest smartphones under the brand is the Nokia Lumia 620. Nokia Lumia 620 is aimed at the entry-level buyers who want to try a Windows Phone 8 but can’t afford to spend too much on it. The phone is a decent enough piece of merchandise, especially considering its price. It features a 3.8-inch screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Dual-core 1 GHz Krait and a 512 MB RAM. It has an 8 GB internal storage capacity and an external storage expandable up to 64 GB.

The Nokia Lumia 620 has a 5 MP camera with auto focus and LED flash, as well as a secondary front-facing VGA camera. The phone like most of the phones under the Lumia brand is available in a variety of bright colors, such as lime green, orange, magenta, yellow, cyan, and the usually white and black. In fact, the phone comes with back panels in these colors allowing the user to change the phone’s color every few days.

However, the phone has been criticized as looking a bit plasticky and cheap. The phone is also a bit on the heavier side. Another issue with the phone, in fact all the Windows phones, is that it comes with the Internet Explorer browser built-in, which can be quite lagging at times, and the phones do not support any other browsers. Furthermore, the collection of apps available on Windows is quite limited, especially as compared to the apps available for Android and Apple.

Micromax and Karbonn are two such companies based in the Indian market. Currently their latest products are competing for market share. These are the Micromax A116 Canvas HD and Karbonn Titanium S5.

The Micromax A116 Canvas HD is the successor to the really popular Micromax A110 Canvas 2 and is better than its predecessor in every way. It features a 5.0 inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. It runs on a Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 and 1 GB of RAM, making is faster than its predecessor and most mid-market smartphones at the time. It comes with Android OS v4.1.2 (Jelly Bean), and has a planned upgrade to v4.2 (Jelly Bean). Like its predecessor, it is also a Dual-SIM phone and has an internal memory of 4 GB, of which 1.77 GB is available to the user. The phone has an 8 MP primary camera and a 2 MP secondary camera.

The information for the detailed table about the two phones has been taken from the Nokia website, Micromax website, techradar.com, and GSMArena.com.

By using android aaps a user can be able to open or view PDF,Docs.,or Xls files but the main problem is while attaching these files to email or uploading .These files are not included in the option files which is a major drawback for a so called smart phone to miss basic features like this example.
