Camera / Storage

The Moto E has a 5 MP camera on the rear and it is disappointing that there is no flash support for it and moreover it also lacks the front facing camera. On the hand the Unite 2 has the same 5 MP camera but it has the LED flash support along with a 2 MP front facing camera. The lack of front camera in the Moto E pretty much a factor to be considered as you cannot make video calls or Skype calls.

Moto E comes with 4 GB of internal memory that can be expandable up to 32 GB via microSD card as it is in the case of the Micromax Unite 2.

Connectivity/ Battery

Both these Smart Phone are 3G variant and will be supporting dual SIM (GSM + GSM) and dual standby. The battery on the Moto E is at 1980 mAh, while its competitor has a 2000 mAh battery on the back, so there is not a big difference in the battery powering these handsets.

Well we don’t have much to say about the pricing as both the devices are priced at Rs. 6,999 and with the quad core processor and a front camera Unite 2 is better option to go with. Many might be considering the Brand name as Motorola is an international brand that has delivered Smart Phones like the Moto G and Moto X that has created buzz in the market. But an important factor to consider in this, is that you cannot buy the Moto E in the local market unlike the Unite 2, because the Motorola phones are available only through Flipkart.
