Micromax Canvas 4 vs. Karbonn Titanium S9

The Canvas 4 and Titanium S9 have very similar specs, sharing the same processor, similar cameras, and almost all other features. That being said, how do you know which phone is the right one for you?

Micromax Canvas 4 Specifications

Micromax’s Canvas 4 is available in two colors - grey and white. The device has a classy, durable aluminum body.

The Canvas 4 is a 5-inch phone with an HD display. The device has the MT6589 quad-core processor, clocked at 1.2GHz. It has 16 GB of internal memory that is expandable to 32 GB via microSD, along with 1 GB of RAM. The device comes running Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean).

The phone has a 13-megapixel rear camera with auto-focus. It also has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, which is pretty good for a smartphone on the market today.

The Canvas 4 has a 2,000 mAh battery, which can provide users with 9 days of standby time or 8 hours of talk time. Other features the phone has include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 3G, a microUSB port, dual-SIM support, GPS, and FM radio to boot.

Karbonn Titanium S9 Specifications

Karbonn’s Titanium S9 only comes in white. It comes with a flip cover upon purchase.

The Titanium S9 has a 5.5-inch HD display. This is half an inch larger than the screen on the Canvas 4. The device has the same processor as the Canvas 4, the MT6589 quad-core processor by MediaTek, which clocks at 1.2GHz.

The device also has 16 GB of memory that can be expanded to 32 GB through microSD and 1 GB of RAM. It also comes running Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean). These specs all match those of the Canvas 4.

The Titanium S9 has a 13-megapixel rear camera with auto-focus and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Furthermore, the device has a 2,600 mAh battery, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 3G, a microSD port, dual-SIM support, GPS, and FM radio to boot.

Who Wins?

Both phones have great specifications for phones out on the market right now. The only real differences between the phones are screen size, battery, and cost.

Both the Titanium S9 and the Canvas 4 will offer a great phablet device to users. If you prefer a little more tablet than phone, you may prefer the Titanium S9, since it has more screen real estate. For most users with phones that have 3- or 4-inch screens, either device will be seen as an upgrade. In other words, most users would be satisfied with the screen on either device.

The Titanium S9 has a more powerful battery, however, this doesn’t necessarily mean it has more talk and standby time. The larger screen may counteract the battery. It’s hard to say which will have better battery life.

Finally, the Titanium S9 is a little more expensive, priced at Rs. 19,990, while the Canvas 4 is priced at Rs. 17,999. If you have a strong preference for the 5.5-inch screen, go with the Titanium S9. Otherwise, you’ll likely be as satisfied with the cheaper Canvas 4. Whatever the case, both phones are excellent competitors to the Galaxy Note 2 and the soon-to-be Note 3, which will retail for much higher.
