The year may still have a long way to go before the start of 2015, but we have already been treated to a large number of smartphones from a host of different manufacturers.
If a comparison can be charted, it will be seen that the smartphone business in India actually boomed compared to what it was even last year. So much so that the Indian market was actually ranked highly among others in the Asia-Pacific region.
However, the story could have been much different if not the likes of Apple, Samsung or Sony hadn't ever entered the market to try out their lucks. But while all the big names still exist, a number of smaller and upcoming ones are also making sure that their presence is felt.
Two devices currently sharing the similar kind of ideology while making the most out of the market are the new Huawei Honor 3X and the previously released Micromax Canvas Knight.
While Huawei's new device looks enter the smartphone race as one of the better smartphones you will see in the market, Micromax has already made quite the name for itself and one big example of that can be derived via the Canvas Knight handset.
So if we were to strike a comparison between both these devices, who do you think will have the upper hand in the race? We take a closer look.
Huawei Honor 3X Vs Micromax Canvas Knight A350: Operating System
Since both the devices are basically Android devices, so it's no surprise that both of them come running the Google-based Android Jelly Bean operating system. Although we are not sure if any of these devices will ever receive the KitKat update.

The device also has a greater secondary 8-megapixel camera on board that will be more than just a camera that sits in the front of the phone.
Huawei Honor 3X Vs Micromax Canvas Knight A350: Processor
New devices mean new horsepower and an similarly enabled hardware. And neither of these two are any different.

The Micromax-made Canvas Knight A350, on the other hand, offers the same 2GB of RAM while offering the device in a much greater 32 GB internal memory variant. But there's no option to expand the device's memory since Micromax decided against offering any external microSD slot.

Huawei Honor 3X Vs Micromax Canvas Knight A350: Verdict
Now this one is a mixed bag. The Huawei Honor 3X has the upper hand as long as only the battery and expandable memory are concerned. But apart from that, almost all the credits have to be given to the Canvas Knight for being an overall good phone.
And since the price difference isn't that big a deal, we are guessing that the Canvas Knight will have the better of the Huawei handset.
