With the current domestic market being one of the most open and exciting of all time, it's only natural to see a boaltoad of smartphones manufacturers flooding the market with their own offerings.
The smartphone business, itself, comprises of three major segments -- The High-end, the low-to-mid range and the low range. And as expected with the Indian market, most of the noise is here is made by the low-to-mid range and the low range segment.
Needless to say, a number of smartphones are there that are currently featured in both these segments. While there are companies such as Samsung, HTC and Sony currently making rounds in the Market with their own affordable offerings, there are other India-based vendors who are also trying hard to get into the act.
And two companies that are currently battling it out both on the field and on papers are the new Motorola-made Moto E and the new Unite 2 handset from Micromax. As expected, both the devices are features in the low-to-mid range segment and are expected to sell better than most others in the segment.
