Powered with 1.5GHz quad-core Spreadtrum SC9830 processor the iVoomi Me 1+ comes with 2GB of RAM along with 3000 MAH battery strength. The phone is considered to be a choice for value seeker consumer who would like to avail certain threshold of features and durability in a smartphone.
The budget smartphone segment in India is having a fierce competition with more than fifteen smartphone brands are appealing to the consumers for their attention. The first time smartphone buyers are the hottest segment for the budget oriented brands. iVOOMi is expected to tap the same segment. The Chinese new entrant iVoomi makes an appealing entry recently.
After testing the temperament of Indian mobile consumers, with their mobile accessories, iVOOMi launched two new devices called Me 1, and Me 1+. At Rs. 4,999, the Me 1+ is the most expensive device the company is currently offering in India. The phone – iVooMi Me 1+ came to ReviewStreet for a review and we have used the phone in multiple situations. Obviously, to understand the responsiveness of this device.
The iVooMi Me 1+ has 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card. This device comes with 8-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies.
The iVoomi Me 1+ runs Android 6.0 and is powered by a 3000mAh non removable battery.
The iVoomi Me 1+ is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Micro-SIM and Micro-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). Sensors on the phone include Proximity sensor and Accelerometer.
The Form factor of iVOoMi 1+
The plastic build of this phone comes with 2.5D glass. The old fashioned style with removable back and removable battery makes this phone lightly make it look like an old school phone. The removable back can be used to access the SIM card slots, microSD slot and the removable battery.
The left side of the device has all the keys, including power and volume keys. The headphone jack and microUSB slot are located on top of the device. The right side of the smartphone is completely clean.
The 8 MP rear camera gave a wonderful experience in terms of photography output. The inbuilt apps like face detection, motion control, shake control as well as light control makes it a very viable product for photo shooting. Obviously, there are many smartphones available with better detailing with regards to camera, but in this budget this phone has impressed our review team.
The selfie shot from this camera also gave some wonderful results.
Display and User Experience
The 5-inch HD display posses some cool colours and decent viewing angles. The screen had a decent luminance rating of about 540 Lux. Having a reflective screen the display in the bright sunlight is slightly far from being giving a wow effect. The phone doesn’t have an option for adaptive brightness which could be a major issue for some of the users who often go out without checking their phone’s brightness settings.
Powered by a super quad-core Spreadtrum processor along with Mali 400 MP2 graphics and 2GB of RAM, iVooMi 1+ gives an interesting experience for day to day phone usage. This can accommodate multi tasking with few internet enabled windows open, phone book, calling etc. But heavy gaming along with work as multi tasking might not be a great idea for this device.
Spreadtrum chipsets aren’t known to be easily compatible with newer versions of Android.
The phone sports a 3000mAh battery, which is pretty decent. Once-a-day charging for non-heavy user will be sufficient. However, if always on connected users gets an hands on to this device then the phone might have to get charged at least twice a day.
In today’s highly vibrant and competitive market, this is a appealing phone for budget minded smartphone users who are yet to get matured. This is a good phone considering the price range, but there are few areas such as auto brightness display, back cover etc. can make it even more appealing and interesting.
From ReviewStreet, this phone gets 3.8 from 5 Stars.
