But, nowadays every new smartphone maker is giving a very strong competition to well established smartphone maker. So, it’s not that necessary to believe on brand popularity rather you should check out the features of the phone.
Still, for your information let me tell you something important about the Xiaomi and Micromax brands. One thing you would know about Xiaomi that it is a Chinese smartphone company and a few months ago started launching smartphone in India, but you may surprise to know that it is the world’s third largest smartphone distributor. Whereas Micromax is an Indian smartphone maker which is also popular for launching various feature rich and budget friendly smartphones. It is the tenth largest smartphone vendor in the world.

Now, let me compare some of the important features of Xiaomi Redmi 2 and Micromax Canvas Spark smartphones. I’m sure this comparison between the features of these two phones will help you instantly choose the best smartphone for you without any confusion.
Display and Resolution
You would know that bigger screen means more space to interact with phone and applications and better resolution means sharper images, videos and text. But, in case of display, both of these smartphone come with the same 4.70 inch of screen size, but the resolution is different. The Xiaomi smartphone has 720×1280 pixels resolution whereas Micromax Canvas Spark has 580×960 pixels resolution. So, Xiaomi Redmi 2 has better screen resolution for sharper images, videos and text.
Better processor means, better performance of your smartphone. Xiaomi Redmi 2 has 1.2 GHz Quad Core processor whereas Micromax Canvas Spark has 1.3 GHz Quad Core processor. However it’s not that great difference but still the point to be noted that price of Micromax Canvas Spark is cheaper than Redmi 2 smartphone and on the other hand it has more powerful processor as compared to Xiaomi Redmi 2.
As I already told you that both of these smartphones run on Android operating system but one more thing you should know that what version of operating system they have. This time (April 24, 2015) Android’s Lollipop is the latest version by preceding the Android Kitkat OS.
The Micromax Canvas Spark runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system whereas Xiaomi Redmi 2 smartphone runs on Android’s Kitkat version. However, both are new but nowadays people are more crazy for the Lollipop operating system. And here you can get it only in Rs 4,999 by purchasing Micromax Canvas Spark.
The higher the battery capacity, the longer the battery of the smartphone will last. However, the battery power of these smartphones are different but not that great difference between them. Xiaomi Redmi 2 smartphone comes with 2200 mAh battery power and Micromax Canvas Spark smartphone has 2000 mAh battery power.
Above I discussed about only three important features of these smartphones – Processor, Display and Battery but missed Camera and Memory features. This is because both of these smartphones come with same camera (2 MP Front and 8 MP Rear) and memory (1 GB RAM and 8 GB Internal Storage) features.
On seeing the features of both of these smartphones, it became very difficult to choose the one because both of these smartphones have almost similar features. But, in case of pricing Micromax Canvas Spark is approx Rs 2000 cheaper than Xiaomi Redmi 2 smartphone. And another benefit of Micromax Canvas Spark is its Android Lollipop operating system.
However, Xiaomi is more popular brand in the world as compared to Micromax but not that popular in India. And Micromax is one the most popular and trusted brand for Indians.
So, comparing all the features, pricing and brand popularity all I can say that Micromax Canvas Spark will be good choice for Indian users.
