Question Compass/Magnetometer in Micromax Canvas phones

What is Micromax trying to accomplish by not putting a simple Compass/Magnetometer hardware in the Canvas phones?

I mean seriously how much cost-saving are they doing by such a silly exclusion???

I have been using the Micromax Canvas HD A116 for the past 1 year and it is indeed a phone of worthy praises! The only problem I faced is the Compass otherwise the phone is awesome...
Other minor drawbacks are [1] low phone memory [2] no Kitkat update (atleast not yet )

Can someone please suggest a phone which has the following features
-> Dual-Sim Android
-> 2 GB RAM
-> Compass/Magnetometer
-> Sufficient Phone Storage
-> preferably below 25k

Thanks,
Gauss

The Wiko Cink 5 is exactly the same phone as the Micromax A116 except it has a compass !!
