This kind of hardware is not easy to find on a budget model. The phone looks impressive from the features point of view.
Micromax Unite 3 Q372 also has a nice look and it is a kind of nice overall budget Smartphone. The best part here is that you get the most latest android operating system on the same. Due to that this phone gets a bit more promising. You can see the specs below that clearly states the benefits of Micromax Unite 3 Q372 . We will be checking out the phone a bit more in detail.

Micromax Unite 3 Q372 is not small phone. This device is having a 4.7 inch IPS screen. This display offers you a decent resolution of 800×480 maximum @ 198ppi. This phone has not been upgraded much, it has the same features older version had and this new one is exactly same with only a camera update. Because the same features were also seen in the older series. Micromax Unite 3 Q372 has a decent screen, it offers simple text reading and does not lag much. Most of the Micromax mobile phones work on the stock ROM. They don’t really prefer to use custom skins, which makes the phone a bit lower compared to other budget devices, like the Moto E series which is based on stock rom, but is good in terms of output.
One of the biggest reason to buy Micromax Unite 3 Q372 is the durability. This phone has a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on the front, due to which the screen is better for rough use. I have seen the phone viewing angle which is quiet perfect. The touch is fast and 4.7 inch screen is big enough to type, text or surf web. With capacity keys at the bottom the front 2 MP camera is on the top side. Volume and power button is on the right side. 8MP camera is on the left top with flash. The speaker is below and the device has a removable back cover with all slots inside.
Display and UI:
Micromax Unite 3 Q372 runs on the latest Android 5.0 operating system. From the hardware point of view this device might also work well with upcoming android updates in the future, but officially Micromax has not informed about the same. The stock OS works well. Like the quick settings. You can instantly start Google Now by swiping left. Most of the features of this device are based on the stock rom. The device does not bring a very high screen resolution. So it is not fair to expect too much from the display quality. You will find a few low end features in this section.
If you compare this phone directly with other budget smartphones Unite 3 can make its way to the top easily. It would be better if the screen resolution was more higher than what Micromax is giving right now. Firstouch keyboard is something that makes your work very easy and offer you multi-lingual support.
Micromax Unite 3 Q372 has a 8MP back camera and a 2MP front camera. The back camera has LED flash that will help you take a brighter photos in dim light. The photo quality is good even if you click in low light, due to flash. Micromax Unite 3 Q372 does not use any kind of impressive technology to make the photo better. It just work well and as I said before it is a budget phone so things be lower on this model. Having flash on the back camera is very helpful. Third party camera apps can help you add some filter and take good pictures.
Micromax Unite 3 Q372 is powered by a Octa Core processor and has 1 GB RAM. But for Android Lollipop 1GB RAM is not enough. So it is not suitable to say that this phone will work exceptionally well when it comes to performance part. Storage comes with 8GB in which 4GB is available for the users, and expandable is up to 32GB. Most of the budget phones have 1GB RAM only but they run on KitKat. Using multiple apps at the same time is an issue in this phone. The phone do lags sometime. This is because of the RAM resources, which gets occupied instantly. MediaTek MT6582 also has Mali 400 GPU that add some entry level game benefits.
Battery life is always a primary factor of Smartphones. Micromax Unite 3 Q372 run on 2120mAH battery, this is enough to give you a whole day of usage if you are not really pushing the phone much higher on multiple apps. It will work fine if you do not load your device with many apps. But on the same hand if you are using mobile data, YouTube surfing, and with that a few basic games like candy crash then do not expect more than 6 hours battery life, after full charge. Once the battery is loaded the device can give you 9 hours of output on optimized usage.
Micromax Unite 3 Q372 will be a good choice for those who want a budget smartphone with the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop OS. It is not a bad phone at a price of Rs.6000. The phone offers you improved aspects over the older Unite series. The cameras is upgraded to 8MP so that you can click better pictures. The device is nice and works well under all condition. Somehow these device will face competition in the market as many manufacturer are now working on 4G models. With a little hike in your price you can easily get 2GB RAM.
