    Micromax Unite 2 A106 Review


    Micromax is now a big name in the market when it comes to mobile phones. With the growing challenges in the market raised by competitors, Micromax is only Indian company who is able to cope up all the market challenges and come up with new and innovative mobile phones in the market. With the growing technology in smartphones, Micromax is also successful to provide those high-end technologies in its Smartphone like providing fastest processor, good camera, connectivity options and many more.

    Micromax has now come up with unique Smartphone named Micromax Unite 2 and most amazing feature of this phone is support of multiple languages. So do not worry about the language settings on your phone if you have Micromax Unite 2. You can operate this phone in different languages provided in the phone. Now with this feature those who were not comfortable with touch screen phones, will now use touch phones comfortably. Another amazing feature of this phone is that, this is the first phone from Micromax to run on Android 4.4 KitKat version.

    No other Micromax phone is running on Android KitKat version which makes this phone special and pioneer of new OS. Let us discover other features associated with this phone to make a point that, whether this phone will be super like or super dislike among user. Let's find out the same but before that let's have a look at the phone's highlights:

    • Android 4.4 KitKat operating system
    • Dual SIM (GSM + GSM) with dual standby
    • 4.7 inch capacitive IPS touch screen display
    • 800 x 480 pixels resolution
    • 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6582 processor
    • 1GB RAM
    • 5 Megapixel rear camera with LED Flash
    • 2 Megapixel front-facing camera
    • 4GB internal memory, expandable upto 32GB using microSD card
    • 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS
    • 2000 mAh battery

    Design and Packaging:

    Design factor in the phone is good and familiar with Nokia Lumia model. Unite 2 has simple design with curved corners and huge bezel around the display. It will definitely make you remember about Nokia Lumia 620, as the back panel of the phone almost resembles to Lumia. From the front view you will find Unite 2 good and perfect with respect to the price tagged to this phone. Phone is given with matte finish at the back which avoids slipping of the phone and provides good grip on the hands.

    Back is removable and can be removed in the same manner of Nokia Lumia 620, back cover is tough plastic body but compare to Lumia’s body it falls to little cheaper end. Front end of the phone has big screen of 4.7-inch and three capacitive touch buttons below the screen. Above the screen packs with earpiece, sensors and front camera like we see in all the smartphones. The rear facing of the phone comprises of 5MP camera at top centre and below the camera lies flash and followed by Micromax’s logo at the centre. Speaker lies in the bottom centre of the phone.

    Sides of the phone are smooth and tough, same which we already saw in Lumia 620 smartphone. Left of the phone is smooth with no buttons on it but on the right side of the phone has volume rocker buttons and power button which is now very common in all the smartphones. Down side of the phone has microphone inlet and rest surface is smooth. Upper sides of the phone has microUSB and 3.5mm audio jack. You can choose from different color options like Pristine White, Balmy Green, Mystic Grey and Raging Red colors available for Unite 2.


    Micromax’s first phone to have 4.4 Kitkat Android OS and with the first look itself you will understand that this is stock Android OS with few visual changes. UI of the phone is smooth and resembles same like of Google now screen. As the phone is powered by MediaTek chipset UI is also powered by the same but with some advancement in lock screen. Rest all the UI is same which we generally see in MediaTek powered phone. Phone comes with many pre-loaded apps like Games Club, Getit, hike messenger, Kingsoft office, M! Games, M!Live, MAd occupies huge storage.

    Only Apple and BlackBerry are the two smartphone companies who are stuck with small screen tradition rest all other phone manufacturers has advanced up to 5-6 inches screen range. Micromax too has many phones which has screen more than 5-inch but Micromax has planned something different in its upcoming flagship. Display given on the phone is of 4.7inch which is average screen size with resolution of 480x800 pixels and 198ppi making this phone to have good clarity and good color reproduction. Though the pixels density and resolution of the screen is less, still this phone manages to provide you with good output. Factors like viewing angle and legibility of sun is pretty good in Unite 2.

    Screen is glossy so you can make sure that, you will need to clean your phone after every use, Micromax has smartly chosen the screen for its new flagship making this phone to have perfect display with respect to the price tagged.

    Hardware and Performance:

    Performance of the phone wholly lies with the hardware installed in the phone; Micromax makes use of MediaTek chipset in most of its smartphones which is well known chipset in smartphone segment. Performance of Unite 2 is supported by 1.3 Quad-core processors which will carry out all the multi-processing activities instructed by users and to switch efficiently among that multi process application we need to have good RAM configuration.

    Unite 2 is installed with 1GB RAM which means multi-tasking between the apps will be done with ease. If you are using powerful phone which is running on quad-core processors then definitely you would love to play games on this phone and for graphic enhancement in the phone, Micromax has introduced Mali GPU which will take care of all graphic related instructions.

    Now play games and browse internet or run multiple apps you will not be disappointed with the performance of the phone. Internal memory of the phone is very low but you can expand your memory with the help of memory card and transfer all the application from phone memory to external memory.


    Camera of Unite 2 is powered by 5MP strength which shoots good images and videos; though the images are clear but color reproduction is not so vibrant. Outdoor images come good but still color reproduction is not up to the mark. Phone is provided with LED flash but does not help much in capturing noise free picture. Videos can be shot at 1080p resolution but the video clarity is also not much impressive, color seems to be washed out. Micromax should have given good 720p recording camera instead of 1080p resolution. Front camera is given out with 2MP which can help you in video chat and video call.

    Battery Life:

    Micromax Unite 2 comes with removable battery of 2000mAh, as the phone is powered with Kitkat OS which is very light, supports battery to perform all day long. Battery performance has been improved drastically in this smartphone which allows heavy users to stay with the phone for more than 7 hours and for average users it is just perfect. Unite 2 is dual-SIM phone and still the battery manages to give good performance which means Micromax has improved this section intensely.


    If you are planning to buy budget smartphone which should run on latest Android OS then this phone is best for you. It has bigger and better screen with good clarity, better hardware performance with good camera function. Battery of the phone is also impressive which is the must need for smartphones. If screen resolution and storage could have been increased this phone would have rocked the market, but with respect to the price tagged for this phone Micromax has provided good features. Overall the phone is good and most important thing it will suit everyone’s budget.
