AnonD-163290, 22 May 2014Why in this world shouldn't anyone purchase this phone? I wonder if anyone has any reasons...1. The lower PPI screen. Moto E has 4.3" screen with higher resolution making it much more sharper. WVGA on 4.7" display will look crap.
2. Micromax's UI is more bloated and slower than even Touchwiz. Moto E has pure stock android which would be much better and much more stable.
3. Micromax almost never updates it's entry level phones, so forget about any official upgrade and since this phone won't be as famous as the Moto E, so forget about updates from Cyanogenmod also. Comparitively, Moto E will be updated to the next version of Android and is almost likely to get unofficial Cyanogenmod updates.
4. Everything just works with Moto E. Micromax phones are notorious for using bad quality components that give some problems that the spec sheets can't tell about like overheating issues, non-removable bloatware, software bugs, low quality sensors, audio output quality, etc. Micromax still has a lot to do to match the quality of a companies like Motorola, Sony, Samsung, etc.
5. While one would argue that Motorola does not has service centers in India, but I would like to bring into notice that Micromax's service centers are nothing more than joke.
AnonD-163290, 22 May 2014Why in this world shouldn't anyone purchase this phone? I wonder if anyone has any reasons...Eh, maybe they're worried about build quality, or they just don't like Android.
That'd be my guess.
AnonD-263116, 22 May 2014And galaxy s3 can't handle KK 4.4.2....
Keep up the good job Micromax.I think s3 can handle KK efficiently but Samsung want to implement the bloatware (read TouchWiz) over it. There was some news on XDA about this
PS: my Samsung Note n7000, runs KK without any issues (except for some driver) and its actually smoother than TW JB.
[deleted post]Yes. Agreed. Indian Brand. But 100% parts are from Chinese. LOL.
Altamash, 22 May 2014Another Chinese crap. But good pricing for a quad core handset.Hey, first of all micromax is a Indian company not Chinese.
Or u are considering it to be chinese company all because it is manufactured in China then ,do consider Apple's iphone to be chinese as well.
ahhh, there starts the confusion again..
I was about to purchase the Moto E as and when it becomes available and now MmX A106...
Purchase extended for a week LoL
In terms of Performance, Durability & Reliability(Future android updates) Moto E is a decent choice but Unite 2 takes the cake with better specs at the same price point.
WOW!!!That's a stunner from micromax.....I am really impressed by the specifications offered by the company at this price..but it is not all about the specifications,it must give the performance too..It will give a huge fight to MOTO E and a thing which will definately favour the MICROMAX that it will be available at the retail shops and people can reach it easily but MOTO E is only available online....LET'S SEE WHICH PHONE WILL WIN.....
