  1. Can you tell that the apps are movable in external card or not as their is very less memory for apps.

  2. My micromax unite2 A106 is not reading the external sdcard Kigston 8gb class 4.pls suggest how to make it work

  3. I bought unite 2 last month I installed nova launcher pro and using it for 1 month. Since last 3 days I notice whenever I go to SETTINGS>ABOUT PHONE, it shows UNFORTUNATELY SETTINGS HAS STOPPED. Booted in safe mode but problem persists, what to do?

  4. Gogi, can you please confirm weather A106 is upgraded with 8gb rom or not because on eBay it is listed as 8gb rom, even on Flipkart 8gb model was available few days back through seller “WS retail” (which is highly reputed), now flipkart is showing “A 106 with 4gb rom” and no details about 8gb version. Please clear the situation, I want to buy this phone. Thanks!!

    1. Yes it is true, the latest A106 stock comes with 8GB ROM, confirmed by many users.

  5. I heard that this phone is being sold on online sites on or a bit less than MRP. I should wait a little to buy it, is there any chance of reduction of its price, in future.

  6. I heard that Smartphones running on MediaTek chipsets vulnerable to simple SMS hack.SMS with the = symbol was received; the phone would go into a quick reboot (running on the MediaTek MT6582 processor). This symbol means shutdown and reboot in MediaTek chipset language.

  7. My MMX UNITE 2 gets warm near the camera even with normal usage involving messaging, surfing and music etc. It gets hot while playing games like temple run, beach buggy etc. Is this a serious issue of concern or is it normal for it to get hot. This is my first smartphone and I am really tensed about its behavior.

  8. Best phone in 7K range. Battery drain fast when mobile data on. Camera is good. No heat up. Processor is good. Apps to sd card. Flip cover or touch guard is not available in market. Over all performance is very good in 7000.

    1. Gogi plz help pre installed games are shown many time unfortunately stop it. Ringtone selection no option. Camera picture are too bright.

      1. Nirmal, try a factory reset and see if that works, if not then get the handset checked at service centre or if you have recently got it ask for a replacement.

  9. Gogi ji or anyone please help me. My sandisk 8gb class 4 card is not getting detected by a106 but it works fine in karbonn a9+. Shall I buy transcend 32gb class 10 for a106?

  10. Gogi sir plzz tell About The colour clarity Of this phone…I know Moto E Have A QHD screen.Unite 2 screen look like Light in front of moto e.So its look Similar To Other canvas or Apart Moto E. Is this look like 262k colours From other sets..?

      1. apart from moto E its also look Poor with front Of other Handsets…the 16.7M colours And the IPS Screen is Totally worst??

  11. gogi sir many reviews r telling tht wifi direct in nt present in a106 does it will affect the wifi reception ??

    1. I will check that once I get the review unit. And no nothing to do with the reception.

  12. On paper specs it seems very good..but so do lots of other phones..actual usage reviews reveal real truth about phones. I too am tempted to buy this for my nephew- but two constraints..No review as yet from you Mr. Rana, and secondly it has gone out of stock with all the online sellers..some sellers are scalping it for 7999 i.e. 1000 more than RRP..but that only shows bad inventory management by MMX.

  13. Gogi r u going to review this handset if s how long it will take. Because it is available in infibeam so can you tell me is this trustworthy site to purchase with credit card.

    1. Rohit it will take me some time as not able to get this for review, but you can go ahead, use credit card.

  14. Just Like Moto E –Micromax A106 Unite 2 too seems to have run out of stock with online retailers.Guess Micromax could never have imagined the popularity of this phone. They had better quickly import a Jumbo Jet load otherwise they will lose sale of at least 5 lakh consumers.

  15. Do you think that gogi because of low screen resolution benchmarks scores would be impressive?

    1. Yes low screen size and resolution will boost the benchmark score and performance.

    1. you should look for linpack single(which tells about single core performance) and linpack multi(for overall performance of all cores together).
      all cores are not used simultaneously everytime(used whenever they are needed)

  16. gogi sir please review mmx a106 unite-2. its price,and specification is really very very impressive. in your review please add in call speaker sound quality and loudspeaker volume. after all every smartphone is first a phone. i think every smartphones should have a crystal clear and loud, in call speaker sound..we have seen a lot of user review that a blaw blaw handset has very poor in call speaker sound quality..so please add this specially…

  17. hi gogi sir watched detailed review frm another web portal… Nova3 dead trigger .. MC4.. Riptide gp 2.. Temple run OZ.. asphalt .. gt racing 2.. Fifa 14 played awsme… Pls review.. M waitin fr ur review..

  18. hi guys,i got my s1 plus delivered on may -22 – 2014.i have seen many people commenting negative about karbonn brand.but this device is really awesome.for me it costs INR 5629/- (indiatimes shopping).let me tell you frankly i really have no regrets for buying this device.this is really paisa vasool device.first and foremost the device build quality and looks are really good and it looks like more of a premium device.the touch screen of the device is very good.battery backup is very good.then phone performance is great.

    Internet is very fast.i used Aircel SIM card and 3G is damn speed.coming to camera back camera is really decent and front camera is good for selfies and video chat.i saw some people are commenting in many places like this device doesn’t have a loud speaker.this device have a speaker not at backside but it has front side and inbuilt of ear piece of the device.overall i am very satisfied with my phone and this is my first time using a karbonn device.i recommend this device for everyone with less than 6k.

  19. hey bro sony xperia c is using mt6589 and is upcoming with octa core also.
    even htc desire 210 has mt 6572 and desire 616 is mt 6592.
    lg g pro mini has mt6577 dual core processor.
    so bro think bfore commenting..:):)

  20. Hi Gogi,

    Please review this Micromax A106 Unite 2.

    Thanks in advance. πŸ™‚

  21. moto e will be my nxt choice..
    ..as my canvas music is still in the service centre for touch panel replace….even after two months….
    very bad service… and cheap build quality…… i bought 3 mmx devices and all of them failed to last more than 4months….

  22. priced @155.53 USD that means it will cost Rs. 9500 to 10000/- in retail market. πŸ™

  23. Micromax ki Jai Ho. This phone is better than Moto E in almost all aspects except a few like no protection on display, no magnetic sensor. I am definitely going to buy this phone!

  24. can we move apps and game datas(for large games like nova 3,real racing 3,amazing spiderman 2,asphalt 8 etc. ) to the micro sd card…..can the phone play the abovementioned games easily?

  25. Gogi ji , many low end kitkat handset are not installing high end game data on sd card but not application like moto e, lava iris 406q, karbonn s1plus. Is there any problem in software

  26. Some one plz tell me iphone 4,canvas magnus,moto g or any other mobile in samsung etc..i m very confused…some one says moto g has no capacitive keys for home n go back like in mmx or samsung..plz suggest me asap..

    1. It doesn’t. But it has on screen buttons instead. It’s your preference. But I feel Moto G is a better choice.

    2. 1) lava iris 504q+
      Or
      2)canvas magnus
      Am having 504q+ …its wowed me in all means .amazing camera and build .it is the best camera phone at this range …I prefer lava 504q+ for you ..

    3. my friend if you are an android user i suggest you don’t switch to iphone
      now Moto G is awesome so go for it you’ll not regret it
      as of samsung and stuff you may see the LG L90
      but the moto G is the best.

    4. I have used moto e so will suggest for it as it has micro SD advantage over moto g. Iphone ‘s one button control and dbl click is very childish and annoying from my point of view.

  27. Guys don’t get sold out to just the benchmark scores, real life performance does matter a lot.
    Gogi bro himself has reviewed many handsets and plenty of the phones show very good benchmark scores but many of them fail to perform good when it comes to gaming like Modern Combat 4 and Asphalt 8 on high graphics, am I right Gogi bro?

  28. micromax is doing great job….when there will be the video review of the new micromax unite 2….waiting for it….plzzzz post it very soonnnnn………

  29. very good specs.
    but what abt build quality, screen resolution, screen protection and after sales service…
    in all d above cases more e is way better.
    and also service is important coz many mmx handsets fail to last even a year..

  30. looking at the status bar of this one,One could easily tell that its a tempered version of jellybean it seems like they have managed to edit build prop here just like the folks at wammy did a while back!
    Nice trick to fool your potential customers πŸ˜€
    But let us just wait for a proper review of this one Mr. gogi to check whether its really kitkat or a build.prop edited one!

    1. micromax is the 2nd largest brand in india and they dont need any cheap piblicity stunts lik this to sell their products…

  31. clearly seams a better option than moto e in terms of performance …

  32. Kitkat is there, not many care abt the ppi, i just wanna know abt the camera.. If its decent enough its gonna be a big hit..
