Micromax had launched a mini version of its last flagship, the Canvas Turbo a while ago in the form of Canvas Turbo Mini for Rs 14,990. It has also launched the Canvas Knight for Rs 19,999 and both of them will be battling it out against each other for a better value for money device. Let us compare the two to see as to which one comes out shining:
Display and Processor
The Canvas Turbo Mini gets a 4.7 inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels wheras the Canvas Knight gets a 5 inch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Needless to say, the Canvas Knight gets a better screen and it features Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top of it as well which puts forth a compelling case in its favour.
The Canvas Knight has been given a 2GHz Octa Core MT6592 processor which teams up with a 2GB RAM whereas the Cavas Turbo Mini gets a 1.3 GHz Quad core Mediatek MT6582 with a 1GB RAM which does not come close to the Canvas Knight in terms of performance.
Camera and Internal Storage
The Canvas Turbo Mini gets an 8MP at the rear which joins hands with a 5MP front camera unit. The Canvas Knight surges ahead of its sibling in this regard as well. It comes shod with a 16MP rear camera with M8 Largan Lens and an 8MP front camera. So imaging is one arena where the the Canvas Knight emerges as a way better performer.
Micromax Canvas Turbo Mini gets an internal storage capacity of 4GB which is available for expansion via a microSD card slot by another 32GB whereas the Canvas Knight comes with an internal storage capacity of 32GB which is non-expandable. Need we say that the Canvas Knight is the better one out of the two when it comes to memory.
Battery and Operating System
The Canvas Turbo Mini gets a 1,800 mAh battery that will provide a talking of up to 6 hours 30 minutes as per Micromax and the Canvas Knight gets a 2,350 mAh battery unit to give it the juice and the same has been rated to provide a talk time up to 7 hours and 30 minutes. Both of them will last about a day on a single charge whereas but the flagship will provide a slightly higher battery backup.
Both of them run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and both have a decent chance of getting a software upgrade in future. If they do get an update, they will get it at a similar point of time so they are at par in this regard.

The Micromax Canvas Knight is pretty much worth the price difference as it betters its sibling on almost every frontier. As a matter of fact, it makes the Turbo Mini look overpriced. So if one were to choose from the Turbo Mini and Canvas Knight, the latter makes a lot of sense.
