Analysis & Review
Since the direct competition for the Micromax Unite 2 is from MotoE and Nokia X (similar price range and specifications), here’s a detailed unboxing hands on video and comparison with these two handsets :
Micromax Unite 2 VS Moto E
- Display: Moto E offers 4.3″ screen with qHD resolution, offering 256 ppi, Unite 2 offers 4.7″ WVGA 800×480 resolution IPS display unit offering 199 ppi. Hence, Moto E offers a sharper display (but consumers looking for bigger display should opt for Micromax Unite 2)
- Camera: Moto E 5MP with no flash module, no secondary camera. Micromax Unite 2 offers 5MP with flash and a secondary camera of 2MP resolution. Micromax Unite 2 definitely has an upper hand here.
- Processing Power: Micromax Unite 2 offers a 1.3 Ghz quad core with Mali 400 GPU offering better performance than 1.2 GHz Dual Core Snapdragon 200 in Moto E
- OS & Storage: Both handsets are equal in these two departments. Both offer Android 4.4 Kitkat and 4 GB internal storage with MicroSD card option. However, Moto E is bound to get android updates way earlier than Unite 2.
- Build Quality: Moto E wins this round by leaps and bounds because of Gorilla Glass 3 and robust build quality. Micromax needs to work on the build quality and finishing of their devices to match it with international manufacturers to the like of Motorola and Nokia.
- Battery: More or less same for both 1980 mAh (Moto E) and 2000 mAh (Micromax Unite 2)
- Pricing: Moto E costs 6999 Rupees and Micromax Unite 2 retails for 7290 Rupees. Again, this cost difference is marginal when compared to the cost of the handset.
Performance and Benchmarks
Micromax Unite 2 doesn’t lag behind in performance department even if it belongs to entry level price and specification category. Graphic intensive games like Asphalt 8 and FL Commando run flawlessly on the device (quite surprisingly) and it just adds to overall value for money factor.

Expert Analysis & Conclusion: Micromax Unite 2 Review And Comparison With Moto E
Micromax Unite 2 leaves the consumer with a tough decision owing to its upper hand in some sections like large display and better processor while lagging behind in departments like not-so-good build quality and overall aesthetics of the device. Personally, we think the overall ergonomics and software/hardware integration of the MotoE is much better than Micromax Unite 2. Android Updates play a major role in altering the user experience and overall functionality of device (also future proofing the handset). However with a price tag in the range of Rupees 7000, you can’t really go wrong with the either choice.
