Micromax Canvas 4 vs Micromax Doodle 2: The fight of the flagships

There are times when a company comes up with more than one of its promising product at one time. There are two different possibilities. First, these products eat into each other’s sales and two, these products may complement each other’s sales and the company may drive volumes.

For the time being, Micromax is betting heavily on two such products which belong to the same segment- Micromax Canvas 4 and Micromax Doodle2 A240. Hence, you may find yourself in confusion as to which one to go for. We have compared the two devices head on to help you-

micromax canvas 4ScreenMicromax Canvas 4 has got a 5 inch IPS display unit with 720p resolution. On the other hand, Doodle 2 has a larger, 5.7 inch HD display screen with 720X1280 pixels resolution. Off course, the bigger, the better. Moreover, the picture quality in Doodle 2 gets an edge over Canvas 4.

Operating System – Micromax Canvas 4 as well as Doodle 2, both run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean platform. Hence, you can expect no winner on this front. Moreover, it is expected that both these phablets will be available with an operating system update, i.e., Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Hence, even with update, the match will be drawn between the two.

Processor– Gaming, video, and browsing capabilities on a device depend heavily on its processing capacity. Canvas 4 boasts of a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor and so is Doodle 2. Hence, the user interface as well as system speed will remain equal on either of the two gadgets.

RAM and storage options– The Micromax Canvas 4 offers a 1GB RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. The internal storage capacity can be expanded by another 32 GB by using microSD card. As compared to this, Doodle 2 has got 12 GB of internal memory with expansion option for another 32 Gb. Hence, Canvas 2 emerges out as a clear winner in this case as it offers better more internal memory with similar expansion facility.

Camera– Canvas 4 has got a 13 MP camera at the backside along with 5 MP camera unit which faces the front. On the other hand, Doodle 2 has 12 megapixel rear camera and a 5 MP front camera. Both these cameras come with LED flash. Hence, Canvas 4 gets an edge over Doodle 2 in this department as well.

Connectivity Features – Doodle 2 comes out with dual SIM (GSM+GSM) with EDGE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPRS and 3G. Similar features are available in Canvas 2. Hence, nobody wins over the other on this front.

Micromax Doodle 2Battery and other features– Canvas 4 has a 2000 mAh battery as compared to Doodle which gets powered by a 2600 mAh battery which runs significantly more than that of the former one. While Canvas 4 can provide you with about 300 hours of standby time, Doodle 2 can do it 50% better by providing you with 450 standby hours. Talktime differs similarly. So you already know which has a better battery life. Both the devices have similar pre-loaded games and other apps like Facebook, Whats app, Hike, Spuul, M! Security and M! Zone. So, its again a tie here. Both come with features like Smart Pause, Skitch and blow and shake to unlock.

Price– This is the most critical one. Doodle 2 is available for Rs 19,990 and for Canvas 4, you will have to pay Rs 17,999.

Our takeHaving read all the comparisons, its not a very difficult choice. Despite being an elder brother, Canvas 4 either wins or draws a parallel with its younger brother. While Dooldle 2 has a slightly bigger screen a better battery life, it offers noting much in terms of experience. If you are an enthusiast about the latest devices, then go with Doodle 2 else save almost Rs 2000 and buy a Canvas 4 for yourself.

MICROMAX – WORST PRODUCT.The customer care and after sales service of micromax are WORST. My Micromax A 106 Unite 2 went out of order just after 4 days of purchase and now it is lying in the service center of micromax for more than last 15 days. I have personally visited their service center at Lucknow 6 times during this period but they have neither repaired the phone
nor giving any satisfactory reply. Purchasing a Micromax product will increase your blood pressure. Remember – PURCHASING A MICROMAX PRODUCT IS INJURIOUS TO HEALTH.

You have indeed given a detailed comparison but one very important you missed out is on the stylus part. While canvas 4 has no stylus, doodle 2 has stylus which is an added advantage for it.

The other part is on the all-aluminium body of doodle 2.

Dude you sudhakar man… youre a complete AH. You’re an indian and have to promote indian brands, not some foreign ones. Moreover, you get an iphone for 40000 and a micromax canvas doodle 2 for half the price and yet they both have similar features. even the quality of micromax is improving. you hav’nt even seen the mmx canvas doodle 2 and ur talking. just stfu.
Also, ritij, the doodle 2 doesnt have an option of expanding the ram. please rectify..

Hello…as per your review Doodle 2 has 32 GB expendable memory slot..are you sure for that. As per my information Doodle 2 has no expendable memory slot,and that’s the only bad thing of Doodle 2. If your information is right than its ok,otherwise micromax should think about this mistake. This mistake can effect their business as well as buyers satisfaction.

You are right Mainak – Micromax doodle 2 really don’t have any external memory. So u should think about IT before buying.
