The comeback of Motorola completely changed the market dynamics in India. The mid-segment smartphones, where players like Micromax and Lava were doing amazingly well, were affected by the launch of the Motorola Moto G. And with Motorola launching the budget Moto E in India, Micromax isn't staying far behind.

The Unite 2 is Micromax's under Rs 7,000 offering. It feels like a slab with curved edges and is slightly heavy. It packs in a 4.7-inch display with 800 x 480 pixel resolution. The display is clear and bright with average sunlight legibility. It runs on Android KitKat.

Connectivity options are pretty standard: 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and microUSB 2.0. The biggest highlight of the Unite 2 is its support for 21 Indian languages.

While the menu, settings and app names appear in English, the vernacular languages can be used to save the names (of contacts), type a text message or an email. The overall performance of the phone is smooth but it does slow down after continuous long hours of usage and when loaded with heavy apps.
