Now, here is a brief description of the noticeable features of Moto E, Lava Iris X1, Micromax Unite 2 and Xolo Q600s:


Flaunting a 4.3-inch qHD (960x540p) screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 scratch resistant shield, Moto E comes with a pixel density of 256 ppi (pixels per inch). Also, the Moto E shows off a splash resistant screen which lets the users answer calls even in rain. But, you just cannot say it is fully waterproof. So, don’t try dipping this Moto Smartphone in a pool full of water.

Coming to the Xolo Q600s, it is known to be the only other device among the budget smartphones which sings its own praises with a qHD screen but the boost in screen (4.5-inch) size has reduced the pixel density to 244 ppi. Whereas, the Lava Iris X1 displays a 4.5-inch FWVGA (854x480p) screen with pixel density of 217 ppi and the Micromax Unite 2 comes with a bigger display screen among all. It sports a 4.7-inch WVGA (480x800p) display.


Running on the 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 series dual-core chipsets, the Moto E competes with the Xolo Q600s and Lava Iris X1, which come up with a more efficient 1.2GHz quad-core processor. Also, the Micromax Unite 2 beats the chord housing a 1.3GHz quad-core processor.

Coming to the Operating system, these 4 Smartphone’s run on the latest Android v4.4.2 KitKat platform. So, there is not much competition in this place.

In terms of storage, all devices stand smooth as they come packed with 1GB RAM and 4GB inbuilt capacity, with a choice of expansion up to 32GB. Moto E stands at an advantage over the other brands as the Motorola guarantees to get at least one major software update in future.


Looking at the price of these devices, you just cannot expect much in the camera department. Still, let’s disclose what up here in the Camera department for you!

Moto E flaunts a 5.0 Megapixel Primary Camera on the back, but unfortunately it does not possess any secondary camera. So, all those who are obsessed with selfies, the Moto E might not impress you with just the primary camera. Coming to the Xolo device, it sports a 5.0-Megapixel Primary Camera and a VGA camera at the front. Micromax on the other hand houses a 5.0-Megapixel Primary Camera on the back and a 2.0-megapixel snapper on the front. And the Lava Iris X1 stands apart from all these by showing off its 8.0-Megapixel Primary Camera and a 2.0-megapixel camera on the front.


Moto E and Micromax Unite 2 are competitively priced Rs. 6,999, making them the cheapest among its competitors while the Lava Iris X1 and Xolo Q600s are priced Rs. 7,999 and Rs. 8,499 respectively.
