The Karbonn Titanium S1 Plus faces a lot of stiff competition at its price range, as we can see above. The Moto E offers promised future updates, better design, bigger battery and bigger higher resolution display while Micromax’s devices offers more storage and a new Windows Phone option.

The Titanium S1 Plus does not really stand out against the Micromax’s devices, as the specs are identical but for the storage and while Moto E’s specs trump it, it sure beats the Moto E (atleast on the paper) when it comes to the camera. It’s for you to decide but if I were you, I would go with the Moto E.
