Budget Wars- Unite 2 & Xolo A500S Buckle Up To Share The Budget Android Space With Moto E


The Build up

Smartphones were till now evolving on the grounds of technology very recently with the advent of companies like Motorola the entire evolution has been split into other categories- More for less. Motorola started plundering this price point and came out with devices put at extremely wise price point without cutting on the features. Moto E promptly made everyone rewrite their perception of the budget handsets that they come with a bag of compromises and shortcomings.

Micromax built the Unite on the shortcomings of Moto E. Lava followed suite and unveiled its Xolo A500S lite another phone thwarting the sales of Moto E.

Xolo A500S

Xolo A500S is priced 5499 a pittance considering the features it has.  It’s crafted finely with Leather finish on its back panel trying to add some elegant emotions to the device. Xolo has succeeded this time to move out of their notion that flashy handsets with tons of chrome look uber cool.  The camera stands at a 3 MP primary sensor, and a VGA secondary camera (Yes that not only sounds ancient but actually it is ancient!) A500S is powered by the usual MediaTek 6582MT chipset with the Mali 400 GPU and a 512 MB RAM.  The 4inch display has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. Additional chunks of features include Bluetooth 4.0, 3G and WiFi.

Bottom line

Lava Xolo will succeed in appeasing the consumers who are wary of the technology and are on a very strict budget. It would have been great if Xolo had at least a 5 MP camera and a Flash so it could give Unite 2 a much needed dual.

Micromax Unite 2

Micromax has outgrown the domestic competition and is locking horns with the global brands. The Unite 2 has the features that people wished had been incorporated in the Moto E as well. The build is reminiscent of the Micromax A series, but the rear panel plays host to a rubberised layer giving the much-needed grip. The Quad core MediaTek clocked at an impressive 1.3 GHz is partnered by the Mali 400 which squarely outperforms Adreno 203 and runs the graphic intensive games better. 2 MP secondary camera is again a wow from Micromax.

Bottom line

Micromax has reached a level along wherein it deserves to be treated at par with the Global counterparts. It’s good to see that quality and features are something that Micromax is not fiddling around with and in fact with devices like the Canvas Knight escalating the whole affair a notch up. The Unite 2 is a better bet than even the Moto E, and there are no sane reasons why Moto E should be upheld as the better of the lot although Unite 2 has better features and similar build quality.
