Talking about the competition in this price range of around 5K, the real competitors of this smartphone are Realme C2, Redmi 6A, Zenfone Lite L1 and Redmi Go. So, the competition in this price range is quite low.
If compared with the competition, the smartphone is offering different features like Notch Display and Android Pie. The smartphone comes with Unisoc SoC, the company should have gone with the Snapdragon 430 SoC or MediaTek Helio P22 SoC. There is also no VoLTE support as well as the battery capacity is very low.
Overall, We don’t recommend Micromax iOne to buy in this price range. However, at the time of writing this article, our first recommendation will be Realme C2.
