All phones are the best their manufactures offer in this price category. Gionee certainly gets an extra point for its ultra slim S5.5, but Desire 816’s build quality steals the show. The new Micromax Gold offers a 16MP camera with a wide range of features it doesn’t have much competition against the 13MP in S5.5 and Desire 816; and the 8MP in Xepria M2. Also, the Micromax Gold champagne-colored body makes it a great looker, with 32 GB of internal storage and 2 GB RAM. In the end, the efficiency of the device is based on the needs of the user.

    Mr. Parul, With the “Android War” header you just came up with a simple spec. sheet which can be found on internet in a blink of an eye, even a 10year boy with a little interest in tech can do this.

    Talking about the your competition, its completely ok! (obviously in a sarcastic way) you take Xperia M2 which comes around 19K instead of more popular & more fit in this Range Xperia T2 Ultra, seriously a 19K instead of 23K in 20-25K range well done.
    & I was literally shocked you forgot or ignored Samsung!! come on you must be kidding! , Seriously man where was Grand 2 most selling phone in this category.
    Pls do a serious comparison or just mention its a spec. sheet comparison in header. N pls save this “Android War” header for a real comparison not these type of kiddish one.
    N Pls pls pls dont write these type of conclusion “In the end, the efficiency of the device is based on the needs of the user.”
    Do make a proper conclusion and select according to you which phone should be bought and which should not.

    P.S. Do your homework properly.

  • DeepakJoshi

  • Pulkit Jain

    Correction should be made in article:
    “Micromax Gold offers a (16MB) :o camera with a wide range of features it doesn’t have much competition against the (13Mb)”
