Micromax Unite 2 provided the necessary challenge Moto E needed. But both phones are low in stock at the moment, so its still open warfare between the two. The Unite 2 A106 is powered by quad-core MediaTek MT6582M chipset with Mali-400MP2 GPU and 1 GB RAM running Android 4.4.2 KitKat, so spec-wise it certainly has an upper hand. But with a lower-res 4.7-inch WVGA display, it remains to be seem how graphics actually look. Let's find out more in our Gaming Review of the Micromax Unite 2 A106.
We played several high-end games like Asphalt 8, MC4, NOVA 3, FIFA 14, Real Racing 3 as well as Dead Trigger 2, Frontline Commando: D-day, Riptide GP2, Temple Run 2 and Subway Surfers on the Micromax Unite 2 and came out impressed. All games were installed at the same time as app and app-data both are movable to the SD card. There is no lag and gameplay is smooth throughout even in demanding games.
The phone does get warm while playing games, but nothing out of the ordinary. High-end games are taxing to the hardware and battery. The display also performs brilliantly without any freezing or ghosting, but there is a edges are a bit jagged in graphics due to the low-resolution. Touch response is good, wide viewing angles and accurate color reproduction.
The Unite 2 easily bests the Moto E in terms of gaming, simply because apps and app-data are movable to the SD card and the larger display makes playing games bit more immersive. Although a WVGA display cannot compete with the dense qHD display on the Moto E in terms of graphics quality displayed, but the Unite 2 doesn't fare that bad.
Overall, gaming on the Unite 2 is a breeze and something that one-ups it over the Moto E.
