Android market (especially of the low-mid range phones) in developing countries is more competitive than ever these days. This is largely due to the fact that a huge number of local phone-makers have mushroomed in such countries within a short span of 3-5 years. Xiaomi, Gionee, Huawei, Micromax, Intex, Xolo are some of the notable examples of this evolution. Continuing with this trend InFocus, another new entrant in the Android arena, has launched a mid-range phone with an entry-level price-tag. So basically you get a quad-core CPU, 1GB RAM and 8MP camera in the form of InFocus M2 at just about US$80 (Rs.4990). Now think about this – a big-brand phone with this configuration will easily set you back for Rs.15000 (three times than Infocus M2). InFocus has got it manufactured by Foxconn in US.

    Your post contain a mistake. You wrote that Moto e second gen features a qHD display?

      Dear Aurav, Moto E 2nd. gen. indeed has qHD resolution display (540×960 pixels). Do not get confused qHD with Quad-HD which is 1440×2560 pixels.
