Two Phones at the Price of One
Micromax has taken the mobile market by storm with the launch of its Canvas Series. It is now competing to be the market leader with the likes of top notch MNC brands, such as Samsung, Sony, HTC, etc. What started from being just a budget phone maker Micromax has elevated its level and is aiming to be one of the premium brands in India. Introduction of Canvas 4 A210 is a one giant leap in the same direction. At the first glance Canvas A210 appears to be an amalgamation of a bunch of popular phones (Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5). It seems like owing two phones at the price of just one.
