New Delhi, July 16: Hong Kong-based electronics manufacturer iBerry launched its first ever Android smartphone Auxus Nuclea N1. The device packs in some amazing features including a 12.7-cm (5-inch) 1080p full HD touchscreen display, run Android 4.2 and sport 1.6GHz quad-core MT6589T processor, 13 MP rear and 8 MP front cameras.
On the other hand, homegrown handset maker Micromax's latest much hyped mid-end flagship phone, the Canvas 4, is an incremental upgrade to the Canvas HD. The smartphone comes with an above average-build but packs additional features running on the MediaTek quad-core CPU launch. It has a 5-inch 720p IPS display, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in storage, a 13MP camera and vanilla Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
Let us see how these two smartphone stack up against each other: Design and Build Quality
The iBerry Auxus Nuclea N1 has a pretty sleek and decent design. It has dimensions of 144.5 x 73 x 8.9 mm, 142 x 73.5 x 9.6 mm. Its sleek form makes it delicate but it is still durable. Its clean lines and slight curves make it look edgy. The smartphone has three touch buttons on the front screen.
On the other hand, Micromax Canvas 4 is clean and premium looking, despite its largeness. Its aluminium lines give it a sophisticated feel and curved edges make it easy to use. The phone measures 44.5mm x 73mm x 8.9mm dimensions and it weighs 158g. The bulk of the Canvas 4 is still made of plastic which makes it lighter and easier to hold. At 8.9 mm the Canvas 4 is a little slimmer than the 9.6 mm Auxus Nuclea N1, but it is 37.3 grams heavier.
