Indian company Micromax recently expanded its range of new machine. Unite 2 costs only $ 120, so it can not boast of impressive features, but it is running Android 4.4.2.
The smartphone has a rectangular design is quite boring, but it is pretty well built. Lock button and volume control located on the right side. Opposite edge smooth and microUSB and audio jack at the top. The back cover is removable and can be replaced with another color option. Under it are slots for microSIM and microSD. Below the display are three touch-sensitive buttons for navigation.
Display frankly cheap. Diagonal is 4.7 inches with a resolution of 800 x 480. This forms the pixel density of about 199ppi. In practice this means very low quality text display. Viewing angles and brightness level also leave much to be desired.
main camera has a 5 megapixel auto focus and matrix. In normal light photos are surprisingly decent. In low light are worse. Video is recorded in 720p, but unimportant detail, and there are lags. Resolution of the front camera of 2 megapixels and lacks sensitivity. Despite the fact that the smartphone is running Android 4.4.2, the camera application takes us back to the time of Android 2.3. There are three modes (Panorama, Live Shot Beauty Shot) and 14 stories. White balance and exposure can be set manually.
Unite 2 has 4-core processor with Mediatek MT6582 1.3GHz and integrated graphics Mali 400MP2. Amount of RAM is 1 GB, and 4 GB of internal memory, of which the user can use only 890 MB. Fortunately, it is possible to increase the memory card. There is support for 3G, EDGE, WiFi, GPS, GPRS. By smartphone can connect external drives and peripherals via USB OTG.
Tests in AnTuTu and Quadrant smartphone scored 17 643 and 8817 points respectively. This is more than the Moto E, but in video processing it is slightly inferior - 9,8 fps versus 10.7 in GFXbench. Playing 720p movies going smoothly, but 1080p sometimes stutter. Autonomy Unite 2 can play video within 6 hours and 27 minutes. On one day in normal operation it will be enough. Pluses - good camera - lowest price Cons - boring design
Unite 2 is a worthy budget smartphone if put up with mediocre screen. It has a pretty decent camera that certainly better than the Moto.
