It is now a long time Micromax is alluring the Indian market with near high specification phones with low cost. “Canvas” is the most popular series Micromax has ever launched. The series was aimed for mid-range mobiles ranging from 10-20k which attracted the Indian market the most. Micromax was successful in creating the required background for launching its most awaited Canvas 4.
Samsung launched Galaxy Grand at a price tag of 21.5K targeting the mid range phone market. The phone was successful in the Indian market in a fairly short time.
The two phones have a fairly close price range with different specifications.

Are the ON-paper specifications enough to get a complete idea about the phones? It can never be. But in this article I will help you to get a clear idea as much as I can.
Processor: Samsung Grand runs on Dual Core processor and Micromax Canvas on Quad Core. No doubt Quad core processor will perform better than dual core processor in the benchmarks, but have you ever noticed any difference in the two processor while using phones (if you have ever) in your daily work? The efficiency of the processor depends on how well it is put to use in the phone.
Deciding which one to go for between Samsung Galaxy Grand or Micromax Canvas 4 will depend only on your need.
1. Watching Movies.
I would suggest you to go for Micromax Canvas 4 for its brilliant HD display. Watching movies would be a brilliant experience as compared to Galaxy Grand. But the other side could be the battery life. Battery life of Micromax Canvas series is a matter of concern if you are a series gamer or a die hard movie watching addict.
2. Playing Games.
Again Quad Core processor clocked at 1.2GHz will give you better experience as compared to Samsung’s Grand. Battery problems are more severe for gaming and you will have to find a power source near you if you are a serious gamer.
If you are not a big fan of watching movies or playing games on mobile and like to use mobile for your every day work and nothing extreme go for Galaxy Grand. Surfing through your mobile features with some more features on top from Samsung’s TouchWiz UI will give you a pleasing experience. Note that Micromax is not a big fan of customizing their handsets and has stock (pure) android with some small tweaks.
Both Mobiles run of jelly bean Android OS with Grand on 4.1 and Canvas 4 on 4.2. Don’t think that Canvas 4 runs on higher version of OS. Yes Canvas 4 has an upgraded OS, but their is not much difference in the two. Infact you will find more features in Grand as compared to Canvas 4 because of Samsung’s TuchWiz UI. Canvas 4 has a unique feature of “Blow to Unlock” but come on, your are not always going to blow not atleast in public. Samsung galaxy S3 recently started receiving 4.4 KitKat update to earlier 4.2 update. Same can happen with Grand. It is quite sure that Grand would be upgraded to KitKat first compared to Canvas 4.
Canvas 4 has 13MP rare and 5MP front camera. Grand has 8MP rare and 2MP front camera. But I would insist you not to go by figures. Instead test yourself both of them before buying. Samsung has its own camera app with more options than pure android. The quality of images depends on the lens, optical image stabilization and many more things and not just pixels.
Grand Rs.18400 and Canvas 4 at Rs.1900.
The last thing, if you are patriotic enough to use only Indian products, go for Micromax Canvas 4.
