As the name suggests, Micromax Unite 2 A106 was mainly aimed at uniting people with 21 preloaded languages in the phone. The phone was first announced in the month of May 2014 by Micromax Mobiles
and is available ever since. The phone is best suitable for low budget smartphone
users who look out for decent features at low price. It is available in four different colours, Pristine White, Mystic Grey, Raging Red and Balmy Green. Unite 2 A106 provides all basic features that any other high-end smartphone promises to offer.
Unite 2 A106 works on dual sim card technology with easy switching options. The display works absolutely fine with LCD Capacitive touchscreen with support for 16M colours, just like high-end mobile devices. The screen with a size of 4.7 inches with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels also provides multi-touch sensing technology. Micromax Unite 2 A106 works on Android
operating system v4.4.2 (KitKat) and it is upgradable to v5.0 (lollipop) version. But, this upgrade is said to show its effect on the processor and it may drain the battery to a large extent.
The internal memory comes with a 4GB storage capacities. However, the external memory can be expanded up to 32 GB using microSD storage cards. Coming to the primary camera, it supports 5 MP with autofocus and LED flash, which diminishes the picture clarity because of high-end features for a normal camera. The camera provides geotagging, and the video recording is provided at the 720-pixel quality. However, the secondary camera provides only 2 MP, with minimum picture quality.
Unite 2 A106 comes with normal connectivity options like Wi-Fi, hotspot, Bluetooth and USB v2.0. The battery is the standard Li-Ion 2000 mAh battery with a battery backup time of 190 hours on standby 3G mode.
Whereas, in complete 3G usage, the backup time ranges from 7 to 9 hours on maximum. The users have reported faulty issues like the system hanging sometimes and the internet not working during the long duration of Wi-Fi connectivity. Even the sound clarity is not top-notch, as the music sounds a bit distorted at high volumes. Though Lenovo A536
carries many similar features, but its price is more when compared to the price of Micromax Unite 2 A106
. The phone is aimed at providing the most basic features at the lowest price range in the market and this single factor has been a driving factor for the user community to give this phone a try.
