Another Kind Of Hybrid: Eight Top-Notch Phablets


Micromax A116 Canvas HD

Display Size: 5 inch

Storage: 4 GB with expandable storage up to 32 GB

Features: The most "shutter-happy" customers can enjoy an 8-MP, autofocus rear camera with dual LED flash support and features like geotagging, touch focus and face detection. "Burst mode" is an added feature that allows users to take stop-motion videos. Even though the camera function is feature-rich, many reviews reported slightly dull photographs in the end. The Canvas HD runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and uses a 1.2-GHz quad-core processor, making multitasking functions lag-free. Included among the stock apps are M! Store, M! Live and M! Zone+, content and service stores by Micromax as well as a few games.
