Micromax A240 Canvas 4 VS Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro Mi-535: real phablet war


Quad core phablets are becoming the new face of Indian market. Because of the very competitive market, we are seeing quad core smartphones/phablets at very low price tag. Micromax A210 Canvas 4 is one of the costliest quad core phablet in Indian market (talking about Indian manufactures only). It is supposed to be the ideal quad core flagship for all other models. It brings some of the very high levels software features like direct call, mart call answer, blow to unlock etc. it was believed that it is the only smartphone that showcases some brilliant features. But today I have found one of its very cheap/low cost alternatives from Spice.

I am talking about Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro Mi-535 which is too blessed with quality high end software features. The best thing which attracted me towards Mi-535 is its price. At such low price tag it provides some unbelievable features. I am going to compare both the mobiles here.

Specs to specs comparison can be seen from this image:

So Mi-535 houses a bigger screen than Canvas 4 but from the quality aspect, Canvas 4 is way ahead of Spice model. Its resolution and GPU provides much vibrant colors than Mi. On the software and CPU front, both the mobiles are carved on same platform. But not to forget, Mi-535 ‘s processor have to perform operations on 5.3 inch screen whereas processor of Canvas 4 deals with 5 inch screen only. So we can expect high class performance from Canvas 4 again.

On the camera front, Canvas 4 again rules the Mi-535 with 5 MP stronger rear camera. Also Canvas 4 comes with HDR mode shooting which generates very high-quality images. It is missing in Mi-535. Canvas 4 records videos at 1080p resolution where it is limited to 720p in Mi-435.

Memory and connectivity are same but 535 houses stronger battery than Canvas 4. With one complete charge, Canvas 4 provides around 8 hours talk time, we can expect same from Mi-435 (because of its large screen). So till now all the things are going in favour of Micromax product. But wait one special thing is there which is on Spice’s side and it is its price. Canvas 4 retails with Rs. 18,000 price sticker whereas Mi-535 is available for Rs. 13,200-13,500 only. It makes a big difference.

For Rs. 5,000 you are getting better screen, high class cameras and better multi-tasking. Also you will get blow to unlock feature at high price. But frankly, I will not spend Rs. 5K for these features. So if I have to make a decision between canvas 4 and Mi-535 then I will choose Stellar Pinnacle Pro Mi-535.
