As you can see, most of the specifications are same. The two major things that would make me buy the Zen Ultrafone 701 HD over Micromax Canvas HD would be the Android Version and the price.

Zen Ultrafone 701 HD runs on the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean whereas the Micromax Canvas HD runs on a previous version of Jelly Bean which is the Android 4.1. This all comes at a price of Rs 12,000 which is Rs 4,000 cheaper than Micromax Canvas HD.

As they both are Indian Manufacturers, you cannot expect a great after sale service as Indian phone makers haven't improved in that particular segment.

Considering these factors, as of now I feel that Zen Ultrafone 701 HD would be a better phone to buy. I hope that Zen Ultrafone 701 HD comes out to be the same as promised.
