From Indian talent fueled Swipe Technologies , comes a feature-rich, pocket friendly phone
Bangalore, June 12 2016: Buying a smart phone with a tight budget does not mean that you need to compromise on the specs: smart phone manufacturers are coming up with feature-rich devices, which won’t burn a hole in your pocket. Pune-based Swipe Technologies has been making waves upcountry and in the south, for a year now, with its pocket-friendly products that still manage to offer a compelling combo of features. Earlier this week the company launched its latest phone ---Swipe Elite Plus -- at an event in Bangalore and we got to put it through its paces.
Design-wise, the Elite Plus comes with a sleek and light plastic body with a metal rim around. Weighing 131 grams, the phone feels quite light and fits snugly in your hands. With a 5-inch screen size, this phone’s build is ideal for those who don’t want a huge and bulky device and instead, are looking for a snug fit in their pockets. The device is built with DragonTrail glass for scratch resistance. The full HD, 1920x1080 IPS display makes for bright and sharp viewing.
We were impressed with the Elite Plus’s 13 megapixels rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and auto focus. The picture quality is crisp and clear for both indoors and outdoors. Even the 8 megapixels front camera gave us some good shots. If you are an amateur photographer, who likes clicking random pictures, then this one’s for you.
Powered by the Snapdragon octa-core processor with 2 GB RAM, the phone does not lack on the performance side. Like its predecessors, the Elite Plus runs on Swipe’s ‘Freedom OS’, a custom user interface overlay, which is based on Android Lollipop. The UI feels smooth and intuitive. But there isn’t any notable upgrade to the software, apart from a few customizations and gesture controls, and even the Andriod version is slightly older.|
The dual- SIM phone offers a good battery life with 3050 mAh battery. It comes with 16 GB of internal storage, expandable up to 64 GB.
The Swipe Elite Plus is now available on Flipkart for Rs. 6,999. Packed with some decent goodies the Swipe Elite Plus can be a good deal within that price range. And it’s made in India too -- if you feel patriotic! - V. Sudhakshina
