Yes thats right. But Canvas 2 is more popular than Canvas HD. Maybe software integration and price would make a difference in coming days.

Thank you once again for your message. Talking about Micromax, yes they are capturing the market slowly and transforming a big competition to Galaxy Series of Samsung. The same type of phone is the 'Galaxy Grand Duos' but look at its price, a whooping Rs. 22,000/-
Now what people will prefer? Even Canvas 2 is giving a tough fight here.
