Android One to hit Indian shelves soon

Smartphone OS giant Google unveiled their next offering in the Android lineage with the Android One operating system. The smartphone software giant released the Android One platform on three bands so far, i.e. Spice, Micromax and Karbonn, with their A1, V and Dream Uno smartphones respectively. Which of competitor in this three way bout are you going to put your money on? Here’s the gist of the specifications to help you decide, and this is the hard part!

The thing with all three of the competing smartphones is that their specifications are all the same. All three phone come with a hard plastic body, a Gorilla Glass protected FWVGA 480X854 display and a 5 megapixel rear camera to boot. The deciding factor with these three smartphones is hard to isolate because all three boast of specifications are strictly limited to the low end hardware requirement that Google had intended for the Android One OS to run on. This in turn has put the smartphones within the reach of smartphone enthusiasts as the despite the brilliance of the software end, the phones fall within the budget phone price category.

The cameras on all three phone fare averagely regardless of the megapixels they are powered with. The inbuilt memory is not that generous in terms of capacity either which puts the phones in danger of a slowdown that goes against the entire aesthetic appeal of the brilliant Android One OS. It would behove buyers who are heavy on the visits to the app store to also pitch in for a large capacity storage card.
