Micromax and Karbonn have been two names which have, off late been the leading names in the world of smartphones in the Indian subcontinent.
The companies were not known to be major names up until a few years ago, but ever since the smartphone revolution began in India, these two have been producing phones on a large scale and have been producing them at a price point much lower than any of their competitors.
The companies well know that the success to win Indian markets is to create phones which are high on specs and low on price, the Indian consumer is more about value for money and does not care much about product design and quality.
The phones have average builds at best, but the specs are way too good than any other phones at those prices.
Here’s a comparison between Micromax Canvas Knight 2 and the Karbonn Titanium Mach One. Karbonn and Micromax have both been on the top, with Micromax leading the sales and Karbonn at a close third spot.
Micromax Knight 2 – aiming to gain a major share in its home country of India, Micromax has recently launched the Knight 2 phone, which is one of their best looking phones in quite a long time.
The phone is sleek and is just 6.3 mm thick, which makes it very light and very pleasing to look at, and comes with a sleek look making it very attractive.
However the Micromax Knight 2 has been lacking on two major things – the fact that the phone comes with a very average camera, of just 5MP, and the picture quality is quite poor, and the second thing being that the battery life is quite low.
With just 2,250mAh the phone has been quite a weak performer, but is a good choice for those who are looking for a slim phone.
Karbonn Titanium Mach One: Karbonn has been another name which has been making its mark in the Indian markets.
The Titanium Mach One comes with an incredible 2GB of RAM, 16GB memory, 1.3GHz quadcore processor, 8MP back and 5MP front camera and is powered by Android Lollipop OS. All of these features come at a price of just Rs. 6,990.
The phone also supports 22 Indian local languages thanks to its partnership with SwiftKey.
It is with locally produced phones like these that the future of the Indian markets rests on.
