Micromax A110 Canvas 2 vs Lava Iris 501 vs Byond B66 : Final Words
Well, there is not much too choose from. All three handsets are close enough to conclude anything. However, Lava Iris 501 seems to the winner as it comes with ambient light sensor and gyroscope sensor. Ambient light sensor is much needed when the display size is as big as 5 inch. It automatically adjust screen brightness according to exposure.
In other two handsets you need to adjust brightness manually which is bit hectic. Also the low cost gives it an edge over other two. Although the camera of Iris 501 is a 5 MP one it’s capable of recording HD 720p video. Therefore, you have no room to complain at all. Also free 4 GB memory card and additional back panel as freebie comes bundled with this handset. Micromax Canvas 2 is the slimmest among all three.
