Micromax Canvas 2.2 A114 vs. Moto E – Comparing Performance of Both the Smartphones

1

Micromax has been renowned for its budget friendly smartphones.

The latest entrant in the Canvas series, the Canvas 2.2 A114, is yet another budget friendly smartphone, which has a standard 5-inch screen along with a Mediatek processor. The company opted for a MT6582M chipset for the Canvas 2.2 A114 smartphone. This chipset is the latest release from the Taiwanese manufacturer, MediaTek, offering quad cores to the user.

Today, we are comparing the Micromax smartphone against the Motorola’s Moto E smartphone. The Motorola has been adopting strange strategies lately. The successful venture with the Moto X proved to other smartphone manufacturers that you do not require heavy specifications to stand a chance in the smartphone arena. On the other hand, the competing prices of the Moto G offered a lead to the company in the smartphone race. As a follow up to the success of the Moto G smartphone, the company released the Moto E smartphone. The Moto E dives deeper into the cutthroat entry-level segment in the smartphone market.

Let us stack up the two smartphones against each other, to determine the better handset, in terms of their processor and performance.

Processor

The Micromax Canvas 2.2 A114 smartphone comprises of a MediaTek MT6582M chipset that is a variation to the earlier used quad core chipsets from MediaTek. The latest version of the processor claims to perform better than any earlier released versions of MediaTek chipsets, inclusive of the MT6589T chipset, running at 1.5GHz. The performance offered by the processor of the Canvas 2.2 A114 smartphone comes at par with the devices bearing Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset.

In comparison, the Moto E does not have anything to boast about, in the processor department. As said earlier, the smartphone offers a simple design, offering basic smartphone features. The Moto E comprises of a Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core 200 SoC coupled with a RAM of 1GB. The Adreno 302 graphic processor offers a decent performance, when handling basic operations, but succumbs to pressure, while handling intensive stuff. To be honest, the Moto E is not meant for gaming and certainly not a powerhouse.

Memory and Storage

The Micromax smartphone comprises of internal storage capacity of 4GB, out of which 1.42GB memory (1.2GB free) is allocated to phone storage, leaving the user with 1GB of internal memory. In addition, the smartphone comes equipped with a RAM of 1GB or 768MB. Users can install and move applications to external storage. The smartphone also comes with an OTG support.

In comparison, the Moto E comes equipped with an internal storage capacity of 4GB, out of which the user gets an actual 2.21GB of usable space. However, the smartphone redeems itself with an external storage card slot for memory enhancement, through a microSD card.
