    Hello Rahul,
    How’s the battery backup of canvas a1? Is there any advantage of android one over battery backup? I know it’s a 1700 mah battery. How many hours it will last with and without 3-4 hours of net browsing per day?

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      Without – it will last a day and with – it will not provide a good backup then.
