The mobile phone market, notably in the developing countries has seen an insurgent of powerful budget line Smartphones ever.

Competition between the peers has been a bay watch for times and this time it’s Nokia and Micromax that are seen to be all set to rule the market with their class products. On one hand, Nokia is a well known industry giant when it comes to technology, while on the other hand Micromax mobile phone is the new kid on the block.

During a time when it’s no longer about mobile phone brands only, but also the platform also onto which a phone is optimized to run, Android and Windows have taken up the sphere this time.

Let us check out who’ll make up to the winning line between the Windows powered Nokia Lumia 520 or the Android optimized Micromax Canvas 2.


Design and build:

Lumia 520: Lumia is just 9.90 mm thick and weighs around 124 grams. The body make is pretty neat and elegant.

Canvas 2: Canvas is impressively 9.70 mm thick while it weighs around 168 grams.

Alright, the body make of both Smartphones is pretty neat and obviously elegant, with the build dimension of Lumia 520 119.9 mm x 64 mm x 9.90 mm in respect to 147 mm x 76.5 mm x 9.70 mm of Canvas 2. There is a close war between the rivals and this would be a thorn in evaluating the winner.

Advantage: Tie



Lumia 520: It boasts 4.0 Inches WVGA IPS Super Sensitive touch screen display.

Canvas 2: It features 5.0 Inches IPS LCD Capacitive touch screen display.

The display is certainly an important evaluation while making a pick, there’s no paradox in it. Talking about the Lumia 520, then it is pretty much evident that the mobile phone has 4 inches display while the rival Canvas 2 packs in 5 inches screen. In addition, there is also a slight difference in their screen resolution also. The 800 x 480 pixels resolution feels slightly a step back from that of Canvas 2’s 480 x 854 pixels resolution.

Advantage: Micromax Canvas 2.


Hardware and performance:

Lumia 520: It packs, 1 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 processor, 8 GB built in memory, 512 MB RAM and 5 Megapixels primary snapper.

Canvas 2: It packs, Dual Core 1 GHz processor, 2 GB built in storage, 8 Megapixels primary camera and 512 MB RAM.

On the performance scale, both the Smartphones seems to be pretty promising and there lies only a minute difference between their hardware configurations. Lumia 520 misses out the front facing camera while the Canvas 2 makes a call. However, the potent 8 GB built in storage of Lumia is worth appreciatory compared to the 2 GB storage of Canvas 2. In nutshell, Lumia lacks a front facing camera while the Canvas lacks in the built in memory space.

All in all, it depends upon the user that whether he wants a monster built in memory or a front facing snapper in the Smartphone. The built in memory in both the mobile phones can be amplified via external flash but the front facing camera cannot. Still, recommending Micromax over Nokia wouldn’t be good take anyways.

Advantage: Tie



So, the comparison charting between the two Smartphones have come to an end and the outcome of the chartings seemed pretty fair. Micromax has taken up in terms of its crisp and brilliant display!

Talking about the Nokia Lumia 520 price, it is priced at Rs. 11, 289, while the Micromax Canvas 2 price is also same at Rs. 11, 289.
