Buying guide: Xiaomi vs Samsung vs Micromax

The last few weeks saw heavy activity in the Indian mobile market with the lauch of Xiaomi Mi4, Redmi Note 4G, Micromax Yu, Samsumg Galaxy Grand Max and the likes, not counting the small time players like Iris, Lava, etc.  What actually triggered me to write this was the huge price cut of Samsung Galaxy S4, yes they are still selling and now the S4 is available at Rs.17,999 with a Rs.1000 gift voucher.

I need not say much about these phones since you would have read and heard about them a lot and so I'm just giving a comparision table of the specs and the reason for comparing these phones are because of the common and similar hardware on which they run.
