The native smartphone market is ever evolving and changing. While the market keeps growing, most of that growth could be associated with the number of handset companies that are heading over to the market in recent times.
We already have big names in the market such as Samsung, Sony and Apple that are doing big in the market. However, others like Micromax and Karbonn are also doing well enough. But the market is just opening up and there's still a long way to go.
Two handsets that are currently trying to battle it out in the market are the new Nokia Lumia 530 Dual and the previously released Micromax Unite 2. Both the handsets come in at a time when the business is soaring high.
While Micromax has become one of the top names to have emerged from the native market in recent times, Microsoft's acquisition of Nokia isn't also something very new with the company currently focusing on its Lumia range of devices.
So if we were to leave everyone else out of the picture for the moment, where do you think will these two devices stand in the race? Let's take a closer look at a detailed specs comparison between both.
A lot needs to said here since both the devices run on different operating systems that have different features. While the Micromax Unite 2 has been offered the green-light for running on the latest Android KitKat OS, its Nokia counterpart will also become a flagship that will run on the newest Windows Phone 8.1.
The Nokia Lumia 530 Dual sports a 4-inch TFT capacitive touch screen, while rendering 480 x 854 pixels resolution. The device's overall dimensions measure up to 119.7 x 62.3 x 11.7 mm, and weighs in at 129 grams.
The Micromax Unite 2, comparatively, comes with a slightly bigger 4.7-inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen, while rendering 480 x 800 pixels resolution.
The Nokia Lumia 530, in terms of camera, offers a 5-megapixel primary camera, sporting a pixel resolution of 2592 x 1936 pixels. The device, however, doesn't have a secondary camera on board.
Micromax Unite 2, on the other hand, sports a similar 5-megapixel primary camera, sporting a pixel resolution of 2592 х 1944 pixels, with autofocus and LED flash. The device also has a secondary 2-megapixel camera on board that's more than enough for conducting video chats.
As far as the in-device powers are concerned, both the devices, as expected with major new age smartphones, have dedicated hardware specifications to offer the engine that are capable of powering the devices.
While the Nokia Lumia 530 is equipped with a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, its Micromax counterpart powers up the Unite 2 via a 1.3 GHz quad core Cortex A7 processor and Mediatek MT6582 chipset.
The Nokia Lumia 530 offers just 512MB of RAM for users while offering the device in a 4GB internal memory variant. However, there's also the option to expand the device's memory up to 128GB since an external microSD slot for additional memory has been provided.
The Micromax Unite 2, on the other hand, offers 1GB of RAM while offering the device in 4GB internal memory variant. Moreover, there's also the option to expand the device's memory up to 32GB as an external microSD slot for additional memory has been provided.
While the Nokia Lumia 530 juices up the Windows Phone 8.1-powered device via a 1430 mAh battery, the Micromax Unite 2 comes sporting a greater 2000 mAh battery.
While the Nokia Lumia 530 Dual has been priced at Rs. 7,349, the Micromax Unite 2 has a price tag of Rs. 6,735.
Needless to say, while both the devices have their own unique charm, both of them also fall in the budget category. But while this is indeed a race, we have to select a winner among two. And we have to say that the Micromax Unite 2 with its bigger offerings at lesser price is our top pick.
