India based smartphone manufacturer iBall seems to be on an aggressive rage to splash the market with a variety of reasonably priced smartphones. Earlier this week, the firm announced the launch of Andi IPS GEM alongside Andi IPS Velvet and so soon the vendor has come up with yet another entry-level smartphone dubbed Andi IPS Tiger bearing a price tag of Rs 6,299.
As a result, the latest iBall offering stacks up along with the already existing numerous devices that are launched in the similar price bracket and with similar specifications. For those users who are on the lookout for a budget smartphone, here is a quick look at the specifications and features offered by the iBall Andi IPS Tiger.
Camera and Internal Storage
The iBall Andi IPS Tiger sports a standard 5 MP primary camera at its back with LED flash. There is a VGA front-facing snapper that is responsible to assist in basic video calling. With these aspects, the iBall offering would definitely be an average performer as far as its photography capabilities are concerned, but nothing great can be expected from an entry-level smartphone.
The device comes with a native storage capacity of 4 GB, which might be low, but the handset includes an expansion card slot that allows the users to expand the storage up to 32 GB using a micro SD card.
Processor and Battery
The iBall Andi IPS Tiger comes stuffed with a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor of unspecified chipset. This processor is assisted by a mere 512 MB of RAM that is pretty much annoying. These days, even the entry-level smartphones come equipped with a minimum of 1 GB RAM to handle decent levels of multi-tasking.
A 1,300 mAh battery is used by the iBall smartphone that makes the handset a falter against its competitors that house at least a 1,700 mAh battery under their hood.
Display and Features
The display features a 4 inch IPS panel with a resolution of 480×800 pixels, giving it an average pixel density of 233 pixels per inch. Though we say it is average, this is common among all the entry-level smartphones.
iBall Andi IPS Tiger is fueled by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system out-of-the-box with bleak chances of an upgrade. Also, there are standard connectivity features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and 3G to keep the users connected on the go.

Price and Conclusion

This device is highly recommended for those users who are planning to upgrade to a smartphone for the first time.
