Though entry level phones are not well suited for decorous Android experience, but that has never demoted domestic manufacturers from presenting them. iBall’s this week budget Android offering is iBall Andi 3.5 Classique, a dual core smartphone priced only at Rs. 3399. As you can see in the images, the phone sports a textured back cover instead of usual glossy plastic back that we see in entry level devices, perhaps that’s why iBall is using the Moniker Classique.
The display is understandably 3.5 inches in size with HVGA 320 X 480 pixels spread across it. The dual core processor at the heart of the device is ticking at 1.3 GHz, which is actually quite good at this price range. It’s not breaking any entry level trends with 256 MB RAM and 512 MB internal storage onboard. The MicroSD support is also present up to 32 GB.
Trying to check all the boxes, iBall has provided with both a front camera and a rear camera. The 2 MP basic shooter at the back is also supported by LED flash for low light photography. You won’t get 3G connectivity which would have been quite harsh on its humble 1200 mAh battery. You will have to get along on 2G and Wi-Fi connectivity. The software is Android 4.2.2.
The Phone is meant for first time users and will compete against phones like Micromax Canvas Bolt A58, which comes with double the amount of RAM to give you some extra performance boost. You could also opt for the durable Nokia Asha 501, 500 and 502.
