Google has launched the Android One phones on 14th of September in India. The concept of Android One was already mentioned in the Google I/O in San Francisco. But a lot of people are confused about what exactly is this Android One? How Micromax Canvas A1, Karbon Sparkel V, Spice Dream Uno are related ? So lets dig more how Google came to this.
Though the famous Moto G was released in 2014 in India, it was globally released in 2013 thus making it Moto G (2013). This time the new version of Moto G or so called the upgrade for the previous one is released in India along with other countries considering the demand and market they have gained here. The upgraded version is termed as Moto G (2nd Gen.) or Moto G (2014) . I have already made a post discussing about it when its specifications were leaked online. You can find the post here. The rumors of the specifications and the reality did not differ much. Seeing the present budget range market in India with the competitors like Xiaomi MI3, Asus Zenfone 5 and especially Xiaomi Redmi s, which has almost the same specs as Moto G at half of its price, its difficult to say how the Moto G (2nd Gen.) would do in the market.
As soon as the specifications of Xiaomi MI3 and Asus Zenfone phones along with the launching dates in India were out, the hot topic among most of the smart phone users & buyers is which would be the best choice in the budget range of 10-20K. For almost 5 months, Moto G has totally captured the market of budget android phone in India. Though we can say that MI3 and Zenfone 5 had good startup sales and demand, we cannot say they have surpassed the craze of Moto G launch. One reason might be that, at the time of Moto G launch, it was the clear winner and only option available for brand conscious ones. Now that there are 3 options with different positives and negatives comparable, the buyer gets trapped in a confusion about which one to take. If the buyer is specific about his/her requirements, the choice would be easier, but it is not as simple as it seems as all the three smart phones have head turner specifications.
The latest mid range android smart Phone “Xiaomi MI3” has created a wave after launching in India. Every one is interested in its specs & performance. Some are willing to take the risk and buy, while some are just waiting to observe its sales, performance and service and take the decision. Looking at the specs of Xiaomi MI3, one can easily say that this is not a mid range smart phone but a premium phone. The specifications are almost same as Nexus 5, Xperia Z ultra, LG G2 which are double the price of Xiaomi MI3. Taking a risk is definitely worth it and also Xiaomi MI3 has its fan base spread all over the world and it has good forum support to get quick suggestions and trouble shoot. But does it really out perform the high end phones like Nexus 5 is what every one looking into. Frankly speaking, the affordable cost for such high end specs of Xiaomi MI3 comes with a price to pay for. One of that is the heating issue.
