The Motorola Moto E launched earlier this month, and as expected, it shook the entry-level segment by offering a product and features no other company provided. It was little surprise then that the device sold out within the first 16 hours, and the company is still struggling to keep up with the demand. This success hasn t gone unnoticed by others and local brands have almost immediately responded by launching Android KitKat running smartphones in the same price point. These include the Micromax Unite 2, Lava Iris X1, the recently updated Xolo Q1000 Opus, and the Micromax Canvas Engage. Also Read - Micromax In 2b first impressions: A decent desi phone at budget

MOTOROLA MOTO E

We start with the Motorola Moto E, which features a 4.3-inch qHD (960×540 pixels) display with a pixel density of 256ppi. It is powered by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 dual-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM, and also included is 4GB internal storage that can be expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card.

The smartphone also features a 5-megapixel rear camera, but misses out on a front-facing camera, a 1,980mAh battery and runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat. It also features a nano coating on the inside as well as the outside which will keep the device safe from that accidental splash of water.

We were quite impressed with the device for its value for money proposition, and you can read our review here.

MICROMAX UNITE 2

Micromax was the first to respond to the Moto E s threat with the Unite 2. The device features a 4.7-inch WVGA (800×480 pixels) with a pixel density of 199ppi and is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM.

The device also features a 5-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 4GB internal storage that can be expanded using a microSD card, and a 2,000mAh battery. Like the Moto E, the Micromax Unite 2 is also priced at Rs 6,999.

XOLO Q1000 Opus

Almost immediately after the launch of the Moto E, Xolo announced that the Android KitKat update for Q1000 Opus. This made it Xolo s first smartphone to run on Android KitKat, and the local smartphone vendor has also revealed that other smartphones in its portfolio too will be updated to the latest version of Android.

As far as specifications are concerned, the Q1000 Opus features a 5-inch FWVGA (854×480 pixels) display and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM. The device also features a 5-megapixel rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 4GB expandable internal storage and a 2,000mAh battery.

The Xolo Q1000 Opus is available on e-commerce sites for Rs 7,328.

LAVA Iris X1

And last, but not the least, is Lava s Iris X1, which was launched earlier today. The smartphone features a 4.5-inch FWVGA (854×480 pixels) display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 4GB internal storage that can be expanded using a microSD card. Also featured are 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 1,800mAh battery. This device is the most expensive of the lot with a price tag of Rs 7,999.

MICROMAX CANVAS ENGAGE

Earlier today, yet another Micromax budget smartphone running on Android KitKat was spotted on an Indian e-commerce website. The Micromax Canvas Engage features a 4-inch WVGA display, 1.2GHz quad-core SoC paired with 512MB of RAM and 4GB expandable internal storage.

Also included is a 5-megapixel rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, a 1,500mAh battery and on the software front, it runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat. It is priced at Rs 6,199 and should be officially launched by the company soon.
