If we are to keep all the top notch smartphones companies aside for a while, with the likes of Apple, Samsung and Sony put on hold for a while, it could be really interesting to check out the advent of vendors that are primarily India-based.
There are a host of Indian manufacturers such as Karbonn, Lava and Micromax that are currently trying to topple a market that was once so closely controlled by other big names in the race. And with more and more devices coming in at subsidized prices, it might seem like it's only a matter of time before these companies eventually catch up.
Keeping all others aside for the time being, lets focus on Micromax for a bit and take a look at what it has achieved until now. The Gurgaon-based Micromax is easily one of the top names among its all other Indian counterparts.
Lately, Micromax has been coming out with a host of different smartphones at subsidized prices that look to offer something for everybody looking to invest on a phone and yet not wanting to invest much. Two devices from Micromax that actually fit that bill are the previously release Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 and the brand new Micromax Unite 2 A106.
So if we are to keep all others in the race out of the current contention, how do you think both these Micromax devices will fare when pitted against each other? Lets take a look at the comparison between Micromax Unite 2 A106 and the Canvas Doodle 3.
