icromax has launched its flagship device, the Canvas Knight in India for a price of Rs 19,999 and Karbonn mobiles has launched three devices which go head on with the Canvas Knight. One of them is the Titanium Hexa which has been launched in the country for a price of Rs 16,990. Both of them will be spoiling the consumer for choice so we though we’ll ease things up a bit for you by comparing the two devices. Here’s a comparison of the both:
Display and Processor
The Micromax Canvas Knight comes with a 5 inch full HD IPS LCD display. The Karbonn Titanium Hexa on the other hand gets a 5.5 Inch LTPS LCD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Both of them feature full HD displays and we didn’t find an issue with either of them It is totally up to you as to what screen size you favour more.
Canvas Knight comes with a MT6592T true octa core which houses 8 Cortex A7 based cores clocked at 2 GHz. It gets coupled to a 2GB RAM. Locking horns with it is a 1.5 GHz true Hexa-core MT6591 Processor also coupled with a 2GB RAM. Both of them are quite the performers but the Canvas Knight takes the cake in this regard.
Camera and Internal Storage
The primary shooter has a 13 MP sensor and is supported by LED flash in the Karbonn Titanium Hexa. Joining it up front is a 5MP camera. On the other hand, the Canvas Knight gets a 16 MP camera with OmniVision BSI 2 sensor and Largan M8 lens. The pixel size of 1.34 micrometer is also larger than average camera’s ixel size which in turn will provide you with better low light performance. You also get an 8MP front camera.
The internal storage of the Titanium Hexa is 16GB whereas that of the Canvas Knight is 32GB. However, the Titanium Hexa makes up for the lesser internal storage by getting a microSD card slot for expansion of memory by another 32GB. So it’s a trade-off between higher internal storage and expandable storage so you decide as per your preference.
Battery and Operating System
The battery unit of the Titanium Hexa is 2050 mAh unit and the same would less about 3/4th of a day in real world. Seeing the fact that it will have to power a full HD display, we are not really sure if it will last for quite a bit. Karbonn has not specified the battery backup of the Titanium Hexa. The Canvas Knight on the other hand gets a 2350 mAh battery will provide you with 7.5 hours of talk time and 175 hours of standby time which is also less but is better than the Titanium Hexa.
Titanium Hexa runs on Android 4.4 KitKat which is way better than the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean of the Canvas Knight. Micromax, however is believed to be working on updating the device to KitKat in near future.

Titanium Hexa comes across as a really good big screen device however its battery backup bogs it down. It tries to play the catching game with the Canvas Knight but loses out on steam. The Canvas Knight is a better device and hence a better buy.
