Swipe telecom has launched a smartphone named Swipe Konnect 5.0 with very conventional specifications under the range of Rs. 10,000. This price mark is something which will really grab some attention and especially when you are getting a 5 Inch screen product at this price. The specifications of this device are really decent, though we will not stamp this device with the tag of a ‘gaming device’ but still for a non-geeky Android user this can be considered as a nominal choice.

Camera and Internal Storage

The primary camera of this device is available with 8MP camera along with a Single LED Flash and the secondary camera is surprisingly 3.2 MP because usually the combination of primary camera is accompanied by a 2 MP secondary camera.

The presence of OmniVision makes this primary camera little different from what we have been seeing with the other smartphones in this price range. This sensor claims to increase the image resolution and the overall picture quality.

Processor and Battery

The processor embedded on this device is a 1.3GHz Quad Core Processor by Mediatek. This is something which is not so unique and has been seen in many of the devices under this price slab, but the availability of 1GB RAM may raise some eye brows.

Even with such processor and RAM, we won’t hype the performance of the device and recommend you not to try heavy games like Asphalt 8 over this device.

A 1950 mAh is a big turn off on this device, because a smartphone with a display of 5 Inches will definitely drain the battery at a good pace. Anything above 2100 mAh would have been great with this device, so you may have to rely on a power-bank.

Display and Features

The size of the display used on the device is of 5 Inches which is equipped with qHD display, so obviously the pixel density is low and the clarity will not even as good as what you have seen on smartphones like Micromax Canvas HD.

The device uses OGS technology, so it is evident that it will be really slim and lightest of all the devices under this price slab. So all the users who really prefer lighter and slim device can opt to buy this device.

Other common connectivity features are also available in the device like 3G on both the SIM slots, Bluetooth and WiFi.

Comparison

Its major competitors in the market are Micromax Canvas 2, Micromax Canvas Elanza 2 and Xolo Q1010i.
