Three of the most popular phones in India right now are the Micromax Canvas Nitro A310, the HTC Desire 816 and the Galaxy Core 2. Samsung’s handset may be the oldest of the bunch, but it is still proving popular in the Indian market because of its value for money in terms of specs and features. Seeing as though some of you may be about to purchase a new handset, but are unable to make the right decision, we thought we would help you out a little by pointing out the specs and price, and also show you three reviews that showcase the good and bad of each of the three handsets.

Micromax Canvas Nitro vs Galaxy Core 2 – The Samsung Galaxy Core 2 was released around April of this year, while the Micromax Canvas Nitro came to the market earlier this month.

Micromax Canvas Nitro vs. HTC Desire 816 – This comparison is going in the other direction because instead of having a smaller handset to compare the new Canvas Nitro to, we have one that it 0.5 inches bigger.

As for RAM and storage we have 2GB and 8GB compared to 68MB of RAM and 4GB and 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

The camera showdown is pretty similar for two of these handsets, with the Canvas Nitro and Desire 816 making use of 13-megapixel rear cameras and 5-megapixel up front, compared to 5MP rear-facing camera and VGA up front.
