Competition and Conclusion
The Micromax Canvas A77 Juice is available at a price of Rs 7,999. At this range, the primary rivals that stands strong is the Nokia Lumia 520. The Lumia 520 is certainly a phone worth the price from all the user experience and comes with features of its own to mark its flagship. But the Lumia falls behind particularly in terms of camera since it offers buyers only a rear camera within same price range.
Though the advantages a Lumia enjoys are its brand name, the windows interface, and a few apps of its own. Yet at the same time one can say the Micromax Canvas Juice has advantages of its own such as being equipped with a more powerful processor, a larger display and both front and rear camera and of course its juicy battery.
Undoubtedly as it is, the makers saw it fit as a juicy phablet as much as we do as to performance in a budget.
