JiaYu G4 vs Micromax Canvas HD: Two quad core smartphones are up against each other. The first one is a brand new name in Indian smartphone market. In contrast to that Micromax is a well established brand. People started believing in their abilities. Some people complaint that Micromax simply import products from China and re-brand that before shipping to market. That may be right, I am not going to that. The point is Micromax is one of the few companies to start supplying quality smartphones at affordable price. Last year Micromax Canvas 2 was one of the best selling smartphones in Indian market. The phablet is still doing a reasonable job. Additionally, Micromax have spread service centers across the country. That must be considered during a comparison.
In contrast to that, JiaYu is a new brand. But in front of JiaYu G4, Micromax Canvas HD does not look too impressive especially the flagship variant of G4 with 2 GB RAM and 3000 mAH battery is outstanding. Both G4 variants boast better quality camera. Just because of smaller display size pixel density is high in JiaYu G4. IPS LCD display panel is used in both handset. But the scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass coating on is the best one can get for his smartphone. Upper generation would have been more appropriate, Umi X2 that is using Corning Gorilla Glass 2. Anyway, Gorilla Glass first generation is still better than AGC Sodaline in real life whatever in pen-and-paper it states.
In camera segment you will also see significant difference. JiaYu G4 beats Canvas HD again. I don’t know who are supplying the CMOS sensors, lens or what is the aperture size but I guess there is no BSI sensor in both handset. G4 flaunts dual LED flash while Canavs HD comes with single LED flash. In low-light I don’t know how these cameras will perform. Canvas 2 disappointed the buyers in low-light shooting.
Hopefully, this time Canvas HD will output better. Just 2100 mAh battery for 5 inch Canvas HD does not look sufficient to me. In case JiaYu G4 is launched with 1800 mAH battery it might be at par if not impressive. Exact price of these handsets are unknown. JiaYu G4 will have a price tag of Rs 9000 which looks quite impressive. In contrast to that Micromax Canvas HD was announced at MRP of Rs 14999. Exact retail price is unknown till date.
Both these handsets are built on Android 4.1 JellyBean platform with Project Butter inside. Google Now is also an integrated feature. JellyBean is one of the advanced and stable Android versions released so far. MediaTek MT6589 is a common SoC shared by both these handsets. But RAM might make a huge impact in this comparison.
JiaYu G4 has two variant; one is using 1 GB RAM and another one using 1 GB RAM. In case the variant coming in Indian market is using 1 GB RAM there will not be any significant difference. But the 2 GB RAM G4 will certainly blow Canvas HD away. Till then JiaYu G4 vs Micromax Canvas HD are in the same level as per as performance is concerned. Take a look at the following table for easy clarification-
