What makes these phones different from Xiaomi and Realme?
Xiaomi and Realme make great devices, but there are some major problems that they have. Firstly, the ad problem, I personally haven’t used Realme, so I don’t know how bad it is for Realme devices, but Xioami fills the devices with ads. This is something no one likes, and since Micromax is offering a stock Android experience with no ads and bloatware, it is bound to do well.
Other than that, Micromax is also offering 2 years guaranteed android update that no brand at this price offers. There are also many other subtle things that they have done, making them stand out. For example, offering a type-c port and fingerprint scanner in the Rs 6,999 budget IN 1b device. All in all, Micromax has done a great job and is expect the Micromax IN 1b and Note 1 to sell well.
