The under Rs 5,000 market is perhaps the most competitive one when it comes to mobile phones, thanks to the fiercely competitive home grown companies like Micromax and Lava. These companies continue to bring newer and feature rich handsets and now a days Android smartphones for as low as Rs 3.000. However, these desi giants face stiff competition from the leader - Nokia, which is still leading all with a market share of about 60 per cent in India.
Here is such a battle between the newly launched Micromax Ninja 3 and the Nokia Asha 305 which too was launched some months back in India.
Note that the Asha 305 is a feature phone and is available for about Rs 4,500. On the other hand, Ninja 3 is Android smartphone and is available for about same price.
