SPECS: 4.7-inch dis­play; 5 MP cam­era; 1.3 GHz quad core pro­ces­sor; 1 GB RAM; 4 GB in­ter­nal stor­age; 32 GB ex­pand­able; An­droid 4.4; 2000 mAh bat­tery

THE COME­BACK of Mo­torola com­pletely changed the mar­ket dy­nam­ics in In­dia. The mid-seg­ment smart­phones, where play­ers like Mi­cro­max and Lava were do­ing amaz­ingly well, were af­fected by the launch of the Mo­torola Moto G. And with Mo­torola launch­ing the budget Moto E in In­dia, Mi­cro­max isn’t stay­ing far be­hind.

The Unite 2 is Mi­cro­max’s un­der

7,000 of­fer­ing. It feels like a slab with curved edges and is slightly heavy. It packs in a 4.7-inch dis­play with 800 x 480 pixel res­o­lu­tion. The dis­play is clear and bright with aver­age sun­light leg­i­bil­ity. It runs on An­droid KitKat. Con­nec­tiv­ity op­tions are pretty stan­dard: 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Blue­tooth 4.0 and mi­croUSB 2.0.

The big­gest high­light of the Unite 2 is its sup­port for 21 In­dian lan­guages. While the menu, set­tings and app names ap­pear in English, the ver­nac­u­lar lan­guages can be used to save the names (of con­tacts), type a text mes­sage or an email.

The over­all per­for­mance of the phone is smooth but it does slow down af­ter con­tin­u­ous long hours of us­age and when loaded with heavy apps.
