Micromax Canvas Unit 2 – A106  is indeed a great model within 7k price segment. The phone was introduced in 2014 with a dual sim capability and features 4.7 inch screen size (400 x 800 pixels), and Kitkat 4.4.2 as base firmware which is upgradable to Lollipop 5.0.

But after upgrading to Android Lollipop 5.0, the device faced some serious storage issue. The phone is now hardly able to install more than 10 apps, more often you get a notification like ‘Device Storage Full’. Well officially you cant do anything about this. Still you can repartition your phone storage to increase your app storage, however this method may brick your device and hence you need to be more cautious before following this method.
