Comparing Lenovo K900 specifications with Micromax A116 Canvas HD
Lenovo K900 was launched in January in India. This new Lenovo K900 touch smartphone is powered by Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS (like that in Canvas HD), running on a 1.8 GHz dual core processor. It has a 5.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen display screen with a resolution of 1080x1920 pixels. K900 covers a 2GB RAM, and expandable up to 32 GB via microSD card. To capture photos, the Lenovo K800 is off with powerful 13 MP camera with auto focus and dual LED flash. This smartphone also features Geo tagging, face detection and touch focus. For connectivity it supports 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, GPRS, Bluetooth, USB v2.0, EDGE and very much more.
Which is better?
I think Lenovo K900 influences Canvas HD with its 1.8 GHz speed, 2GB RAM, 13MP camera with auto focus and much more but where it fails to take over Canvas HD is 'Processor'. K900 is powered by a dual core processor which is good but A116 is equipped by a quad core processor and it is far better than dual core. After seeing the above comparison, I think it will be very tough for the customers to select the best phablet. But the suggestion to buy Micromax A116 Canvas HD still remains before you.
