On the other hand Spice handset comes with higher resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels with Full HD. So, Spice mobile wins the display competition among these two devices.

In present scenario, the camera is one of the main factors, which highly influences the price of any smartphone. In this case, I found Canvas 4 on upside with its 13 MP highly efficient primary camera as well as 5 MP front facing camera. While talking about Spice mobile, it offers an 8 MB auto focus rear facing and the other 2 MP front-face camera for snap taking.

It sounds quite similar to Samsung mobiles Smart Stay feature. User will also find 'Block and unlock' feature on this device.

Users can access up to 2GB free data storage and can access documents, videos, music, photos as well as contacts across the devices. It also supports various anti-theft and security features.

It shows that the interested Spice smartphone lovers can get this handset with almost similar specifications to Canvas series device at lower cost.

Conclusion - which is better?

From my review, you can see that each phone has its own advantages and disadvantages. But Pinnacle device comes with low cost, which can mainly influence the customers arriving at the retail store. It is far better in terms of Full HD display, more clocking speed of CPU and lower prices. On the other hand Micromax device wins over Spice mobile for having more powerful cameras and internal storage. So, let us leave this on customer, which handset they prefer and like to buy online.
