Micromax and Intex have been competing with each other ever since they both started selling handsets in India. Micromax has always had an upper hand, thanks to its smart marketing strategies and devices with low price tags and amazing specifications.
A day before yesterday, Micromax had launched the Lollipop OS running Unite 3 phone for just 6560 Rs via Infibeam. Soon after that, Intex Aqua Star II HD was listed on the official website of the company for an almost same price tag. Both these new handsets from domestic smartphone vendors have good features.
The star II phone has a chrome finish that gives it a premium look. Unite 3 (Q372) is no different from its predecessor Micromax Unite 2. Its display size of 4.7 inches is decent but the resolution of 480 x 800 pixels is not up to the mark.
Some mobiles within 5500 to 6500 range have a 720p resolution (Including the new member of Intex Aqua series, the start II HD). This Micromax handset has been stuffed with decent computing hardware.
There’s MT6582M Mediatek quad-core microprocessor, 8GB internal storage, 1GB RAM and Mali 400 graphics processing unit (GPU).
Intex Star II is a high-definition mobile with 5 inches screen. It supports over 16 million color combinations. The resolution of its display is 1280 x 720 pixels. Pixels per inch should be well over 250.
This Intex phone under 7000 comes with one of the newest Spreadtrum CPU whose model number is SC7731. It has 8GB storage capacity and 1GB of RAM. The latest Intex device boasts an HD front camera with 5 million pixel sensor.
Both Micromax Unite 3 Q372 and Intex Aqua Star II pack with 8 megapixels back camera and dual SIM card slots. They feature 2000 mAh capacity battery that should last for 480 to 500 minutes on a single charge.
The Unite 3 and SII phones also include GPS module, Bluetooth, 3G, and WiFi. Just like its predecessor, Micromax Unite 3 is loaded with over 15 local language fonts like Marathi, Bengali, etc. Thus, you can change the phone language anytime.
