Which phone should you go for
If you go by looks, then Sony Xperia C looks more swish and premium than Micromax Canvas 4. The phones are similar in most features but the Canvas 4 sure misses on some points. Except for the metal band that runs around its body, there’s nothing impressive about its looks. The “blow air” and “shake” to unlock feature is a misfire. You have to almost exert your lungs, before you unlock it. The underwhelming features don’t seem to merit its price tag. On the other hand, Sony Xperia C comes fully loaded with appealing features and it also comes with six months of accidental damage cover along with free 1GB data access for the first two months after you buy it.
