Micromax devices are selling like hot cakes in the Indian market and are currently on the top of the list of best smartphone company in the country. Micromax phones are trending all over the nation and thanks to its low pricing and powerful specs, the company is making a lot of buzz in the industry.
A year ago, Micromax came with a unique phone which supported up to 21 languages and named it Unite 2. After the huge success of Unite 2, Micromax has launched its successor Unite 3. Will Unite 3 be as successful as Unite 2 or not? Let’s check out.
Looks and Design
If you are planning to buy a phone just for its looks and design, Unite 3 is probably not the best choice. Micromax has kept it as simple as it can. It can easily be concluded that the company has designed the phone for non-tech-savvy people. However, the phone is light in weight and compact in size which makes it comfortable to hold and use with one hand.
The phone has got the decent plastic body and the back cover is removable. The back side of the phone features the main camera with flash and there are small holes for the loudspeaker. The volume rocker and power button are on the right side of the phone.
There are capacitive buttons on the bottom of the display. Overall, the design is good but, if a price of the phone is considered, it could have been better.
The phone has got a 4.7” screen which is not even HD. There are many smartphones in the market which offers an HD display at this price range. It has got a pixel resolution of 480×800 pixels and a pixel density of 199 ppi. The colour saturation is just above average and viewing angles are average. Certainly, Micromax has not focused much on the display part which is easily visible.
Hardware and Performance
In terms of Hardware, there is nothing much special. It is powered by a 1.3 GHz Quad Core MediaTek processor and is supported by a 1 GB of RAM. The phone is equipped with a Mali-400MP2 graphic card for delivering graphic performance. There is 8 GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 32 GB. The phone comes with USB OTG support.
The phone is powerful enough to handle your daily tasks and apps with ease. We didn’t face any lag or slowness while navigating through the interface or while accessing apps. The phone is able to run even high-end games like Asphalt 8. You will face lag on high settings but it works smooth on low graphic settings.
Talking about software, it runs on Android 5.0 out of the box with First touch UI on the top. The phone comes with two different launchers – Normal Android launcher and First Touch launcher. The best thing about the UI is its keyboard and support for a regional language.
It offers all major language keyboard like Tamil, Gujarati and even Hindi. In fact, the keyboard is simple to use and one can easily use it just like they use it for English. Another smart feature is in the messaging app. It can transliterate and translate text very quickly just by swiping to left and right.
Unite 3 comes with a decent 8 MP rear camera with LED flash. The bac camera can capture decent quality images in good light conditions but in low light scenarios the image quality is below average.. The 2 MP front camera is also an average one and could have been better. There are other smartphones available in the market which offer a better camera in the same price segment.
The phone comes with a removable 2,100 mAh battery with easily lasts for an entire day with moderate usage. With light usage the users can even get around 1.5 days of battery life which is impressive.
Unite 3 is the best phone but, only if you need to type or translate the regional language. For everything else, there are better alternatives in the market. Priced at INR 6000, the phone is not the best in the market but offers good battery life and performance. We will suggest you to buy it if you need a regional language keyboard.
