Micromax Canvas Nitro vs Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus India clash
The Micromax Canvas Nitro A310 smartphone is a new arrival to the market while the Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus came out earlier this year. The Karbonn phone has been pretty popular and there is already a lot of interest in the new Canvas Nitro. Today we have a Micromax Canvas Nitro vs. Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus India clash on specs and price.
Both of these are dual SIM Android handsets and they are also closely priced at the affordable end of the market. As you’ll see there are quite a few similarities between them, but after taking a look at some key specs you should have more of an idea about which would suit you best as your next smartphone buy.
Both of these smartphones have exactly the same set-up in this respect, with a 1.7GHz MediaTek MT6592 octa-core processor and Mali-450MP4 graphics.
The Canvas Nitro A310 has a 5-inch IPS LCD display with resolution of 1280 x 720 and 294 ppi. The Titanium Octane Plus has a 5-inch IPS LCD display with resolution of 1920 x 1080 resulting in 441 ppi.
RAM and Storage
The Canvas Nitro has 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, expandable to 32GB via microSD. The Titanium Octane Plus has exactly the same except that it has 16GB of internal storage.
The Micromax phone has a 13-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash and 1080p video capture, as well as a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The Titanium Octane Plus has a 16-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash, and 1080p video capture, and an 8-megapixel front-facing unit.
The Canvas Nitro has a 2500 mAh battery while the Titanium Octane Plus has a 2000 mAh battery. Both batteries are removable.
Both phones support 3G, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPRS, EDGE, and microUSB 2.0.
There’s nothing between them here either as they both run Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
The Canvas Nitro measures 141mm x 71.63mm x 8.91mm. The Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus measures 147.3mm x 72.6mm x 7.6mm.
The Micromax Canvas Nitro A310 recently launched priced at Rs. 12,990, but prices vary depending on retailer and we’ve seen it for sale from around Rs. 11,400. The Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus was originally launched at Rs. 17,990 but has since dropped in price quite significantly and is now on sale from around Rs. 12,500. Therefore pricing is now very comparable.
When looking at these specs we can see the benefits of the Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus, which cost quite a bit more than the Canvas Nitro when it launched. The Octane Plus has a higher resolution display, more built-in storage, higher megapixel cameras, and is the slimmer of the two handsets.
Alternatively the Micromax Canvas Nitro has a higher capacity battery and is generally the cheaper of the two, although there’s now not much in it. You will also need to consider designs, build quality, and factors such as after-sales service when choosing between them, but on specs alone the Karbonn phone is the winner.
We’d like to know which of these smartphones you think would best suit your needs. Are you likely to opt for the Micromax Canvas Nitro or the Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus? Maybe you’re thinking about another of the new affordable handsets on the market? We always appreciate your comments.
