Micromax A116 Canvas HD is a superb phone and not that much costly. It is compared to Samsung Galaxy Grand, Micromax A116 Canvas HD wins.
For full color fun and gaming, the awesome IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors is provided which is brilliant. 5.0 Inches of screen is a great screen for gaming, camera and other pictures. 1 GB of RAM is provided for multitasking, gaming and full flawlessly experience.
The Camera quality is very awesome because it is provided with 8 MP, 3264 x 2448 pixels, autofocus, dual-LED flash which is nice and with many powers like Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection. Secondary camera is really cool! secondary camera is 2 MP, VGA video rec. which is better than of Karbonn A9+ and Karbonn A21.
The video playback is 720p HD (High Definition) which can give approximately 30fps (device can give, not HD playback) but it would be better if it would be 1080p HD playback like of LG Optimus L9 P769 but it is LG and it is micromax but still micromax a116 canvas HD is better.
Processor is cool Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 which is really fast guys! Most devices have Single Core, some has Dual Core but it is Quad Core which is mind blowing and awesome for gamers and game lovers! wait..but…processor cannot make games fast! there should be great GPU in phone, yep! micromax a116 canvas HD has an awesome GPU, PowerVR SGX544 now open your Google Play Store and start downloading any  HD or high end games like Temple Run: 2, Grand Theft Auto (GTA): Vice City, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Temple Run: OZ they will surely work in micromax a116 canvas HD.
Without sensors android device is nothing, this a116 Canvas HD is having Accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass sensors which are nice for any person. It is having JellyBean (Android: 4.1) but i think it is upgradable to JellyBean (Android: 4.2) and not like Micromax A110 Canvas 2Karbonn A21 or any other device which are high end and having GB or ICS.
The Bluetooth version is v4.0 which is really cool. Awesome chipset provided by MTK (MediaTek), MTK MT6589
