If i talk about today’s generation , everyone is interested in having an android OS phone Why ? Because of endless smartphone features , Millions of apps/games and still counting , the unusual interesting feel to operate an android phone . Lots of people are now switching from their old phones to the phone which runs on android OS .

These two phone also runs on android operating system . Canvas 4 was expected to have android OS key lime pie but after the release we came to know that it runs on 4.2 Android jelly Bean and S9 runs on the same Jelly Bean OS . Most of the games/apps are compatible with this OS .

So in terms of OS and its version they stand on the same platform .

Battery : The real difference comes here . If you are a gaming addict like me then you must own a gadget with good battery backup . S9 comes with a battery capacity of 2600mAh whereas Canvas 4 comes with battery capacity of only 2000mAh . karbonn S9 wins this time and will provide quite good backup at least much better than C4.

  2. Sainadh says:

    Did you ever use Karbonn phone, because even after giving the number as 2600mAh the battery may not last for long time… Please use that phone and comment on this, as based on your experience with battery I will take the phone.

  3. I found that lots of guys complaining about after sales service of MMX.
    Is that true,In some online review portal they says that canvas 4 and canvas hd are buggy,and below average camera(nokia lumia 720 at 15k provide better camera and built quality than 18k mmx canvas 4).
    So what is your point?. And what about magnus.Is magnus and hd 116i are same?

    • That’s just a myth. You can check the comparisons under compare section. HD 116i i guess comes with 4.2 nothing different.
