Operating System

The Galaxy Grand 2 comes with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean preinstalled while the Canvas Knight comes with the older Jelly Bean OS v4.2.2. The 4.3 brings minor improvements over the older OS and doesn’t have too many new goodies.

Both of should phones should receive the Android KitKat v4.4 update soon. It is just a question of when.

Performance

The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 sports MSM8226 Snapdragon 400 chip having 4 CPU clocked at 1.2 GHz each. The Canvas Knight on the other hand, runs on MediaTek MT6592T chipset having 8 processor cores ticking at 2.0 GHz each.

Both these phones have got good processors. The Canvas Knight however, is perceptibly faster than the Grand2.

 

Display

The Grand 2 has a 5.25 inch TFT LCD HD display versus the 5 inch full HD IPS LCD display of the Micromax Canvas Knight. The display on the Knight is obviously sharper than that on Grand 2.

Please note that the Grand 2’s display is also good for most of the tasks. It’s just not as sharp as the FHD display of the Canvas Knight.

 

Camera

 

The Micromax Canvas Knight features a 16MP AF sensor along with an LED flash at the back which can take photos with a resolution of 3456×4608 pixels. It can also record FHD videos @30fps in 3gp format. The 8MP FF shooter on the front can help you in taking some awesome selfies and also makes video chatting possible.

The Galaxy Grand 2 sports an 8MP AF camera for taking pictures with a resolution of 3264×2448 pixels. It also does FHD recording @30fps and stores them as MP4 files.

Canvas Knight stores videos in the old 3gp format for some reason. This might degrade the overall quality, I suspect.

 

Battery

If you want good battery backup from your phone then don’t even think about buying the Micromax Canvas Knight.

The Canvas Knight has a full HD display and an 8-core processor. Its 2350mAh battery is just not enough for the phone to last a whole day on full charge. I don’t even think that it will make it till the evening.

It is not to say that the Grand 2 has excellent battery backup but it is better than what the Canvas Knight is capable of delivering.

 

Summing it up…

Both are good phones with their own plus and minus points. If timely OS updates and good battery backup is in your list of top priorities than choose Samsung Galaxy Grand 2.

Buy Samsung Galaxy Grand2 now.

If you want your phone to stand out in the crowd of local and similar looking Galaxy phones then Micromax Canvas Knight is made for you.
