Micromax Canvas 6 Vs Canvas 6 Pro – The Better Option
The Canvas 6 is for people who want to flaunt their phone’s design and have a better camera and more storage. On the other hand the Canvas 6 Pro with it’s Helio X10 processor and 4 GB RAM is ideal for gamers and people looking for a performance device while compromising on the metal build, finger print scanner and storage.
The Canvas 6 Pro misses on some of the essentials like the 32 GB storage and the fingerprint scanner which are available in most of the competition smartphones. Another 1 GB Ram may not help as much in gaming or otherwise. If you play just casual games it makes more sense to go with the Canvas 6 and other wise can opt for the Pro version.
But buyers want everything , and there are plenty of good choices available 2-3k cheaper like Redmi Note 3, LE 1S , Lenovo K4 Note and Huawei Honor 5X.
