Of all the top notch smartphones that are currently in and around the block, the India-based smartphone manufacturers deserve special mention with their continuous attempts of toppling a market that's otherwise dominated by the likes of Apple, Samsung and Sony.
There have been a number of companies that have been emerging out of the blue in recent times, However, none has been able to make as great an impact as Micromax. With its continuous push-out of smartphones at affordable price tags, the company is now looking ahead at creating a smartphone dominion of it own.
The latest smartphone that has arrived from Micromax is the new Canvas Engage handset that will now take on the likes of other smartphones in the same price range. And it's quite needless to say at this point that at its given price range, it will look to taunt other high end products that are available at a much greater price.
The new Canvas Engage, primarily, will take on the massively popular Motorola Moto E that has seen so much enthusiasm and popularity over the past few weeks. And with the price tag both the devices are offering, it's only natural that the fight to the top will heaten up in the next few months.
So if were to keep aside all the other devices and brands in the market aside, where would the Canvas Engage and Moto E stand when compared against each other? We take a closer look.
