Both the smartphones sport a 4.7-inch display. In terms of resolution, the Canvas Spark has a qHD display with 960×540 pixel resolution which is slightly better than the WVGA display with 800×480 pixel resolution on the Unite 3.
The Unite 3 and Canvas Spark both are powered by the same processor. Both the smartphones are powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek MTK6582 quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM.
The two smartphones also have the same internal storage space of 8GB, which is expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card.
Again, both the smartphones have an 8-megapixel rear snapper with autofocus and LED flash, and a 2-megapixel front snapper.
The battery of the two smartphones is also identical at 2,000mAh with similar 220 hours on standby and 8 hours of talktime.
OS and Connectivity
The smartphones run on Android 5.0 Lollipop out-of-the-box and offer 3G support, dual-SIM support (dual standby), Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
The Unite 3 and Canvas Spark come with almost identical specifications, with the Canvas Spark featuring a better display. Looking at the price, the Canvas Spark is still the best buy.
