iBerry has launched a smartphone dubbed iBerry Auxus Linea L1 with usual specifications and a tempting price tag of Rs 6,990. This pricing is pretty much impressive and it makes the device a direct competitor to the Moto E that is selling like hot cakes. The specifications of this device are decent enough as it comes with some advanced ones such as Android KitKat. Let us take a look at the quick review of this latest entry-level smartphone below:

iberry auxus linea l1

Camera and Internal Storage

The primary camera of the Auxus Linea L1 is a 5 MP sensor that is teamed up with LED flash and the secondary camera is a 2 MP shooter that can capture quality selfies and video calling. While this appears to be pretty average, this is a common feature in the sub Rs 7,000 priced smartphones and we cannot expect advanced camera aspects from them.

The onboard storage capacity available in the smartphone is 4 GB and this can be expanded externally up to 64 GB with the help of a micro SD card. Again, the 4 GB haters would definitely not like this storage capacity, but the support for 64 GB of storage makes it impressive.

Processor and Battery

The processor incorporated in this device is a 1.3 GHz quad-core MT6582 chipset from MediaTek. This processor is supplemented by Mali 400 GPU to handle graphic rich games and content and 1 GB of RAM to handle decent levels of multi-tasking. Moreover, any sub Rs 10,000 priced smartphone is stuffed with similar specifications such as quad-core processor and 1 GB of RAM.

A powerful 2,000 mAh battery is an appreciable aspect of this device as there are very few budget smartphones with good battery life. This battery is believed to be juicy enough to deliver a decent backup to the iBerry offering.

Display and Features

The display size on the iBerry Auxus Linea L1 is a 4.5 inch OGS (One Glass Solution) panel. Boasting a screen resolution of 480×800 pixels, this display is layered with the Corning Gorilla Glass protection that makes it withstand scratches and damage to some extent. Though the low screen resolution will make the pixel density low resulting in average clarity, this is a usual drawback of all the entry-level smartphones.

As mentioned above, the handset’s display uses the OGS technology that makes the handset thin and light. Also, it is fueled by Android 4.4 KitKat that delivers new software features and an all new and advanced user experience.

Comparison

The major competitors of the iBerry Auxus Linea L1 include Moto E, Micromax Unite 2 A106, Lava Iris X1 and Xolo Q600s.

What we Like

  • No So Great Processor
  • Average camera

What we Dislike

  • Low Screen resolution

Price and Conclusion

With a price tag of Rs 6,990, the iBerry Auxus Linea L1 is a decent budget smartphone with value for money specifications. It has been designed to compete with Moto E and other competition which popped up in the same price segment. But will iBerry be able to take on big-guns like Moto E and Unite 2 without any significant price subsidy? That’s questionable.

  1. which type of Corning Gorilla Glass is this and whether its a trusted brand or not or wheter the bulid quality is like of Moto E


  2. Well to be fair, one cannot expect premium features at budget prices. It remains to be seen how good this phone is. I do not think it is fair to review the phone without getting my hands on it. Minus all the frills, the quality of the intrinsic product is what is going to decide if this is going to be a success or a disaster. At less than 7000 and with a front cam, it sounds reasonable. Iberry also seems to have a good marketing/after sales network. At the moment it is exclusively available only on eBay. With Corning Gorilla Glass, a front cam and OGS, it definitely would be preferred over Moto E. Lenovo will lose a lot of its customers if they do not shape up and re-release MotoE with a front cam.


  3. Recently i have purchased the mobile on
    16th June, 2014 from ebay.in and received after 12 days from the date of
    purchase. Too worst delivery.

    When i started using the phone, i found all the problems of this mobile.

    The mobile battery is very worst. It is getting over within 6 hours normal
    operation of the phone.

    Mobile is getting heated within 10 mins on the use for calling, browsing
    internet, downloading from play store, operating the mobile for different
    settings.

    The mobile is not rooted and not possible to customize.

    Called to iBerry customer service. They said that it is not rooted and they
    don’t want to give root access to it. They are talking very carelessly. They
    don’t do any service also for that mobile.

    Because of rooting problem, you cannot move apps to SD card.

    This mobile is not useful to move apps to SD card. Bluetooth is not working

    They gave external SD card supported for 64GB which is useless if you don’t
    have option to move apps to SD Card.

    They have provided 2.2 GB internal storage for user usage for downloading apps
    and games. But it will not be sufficient for gamers and applications users.

    Earphones are very cheap quality and will not get any interest to hear the
    music.

    Ringtone output sound is very low. You cannot hear ringtone if you are walking
    on main road or if you go outside the home to rush area.

    Battery is getting charged within 1 hour and getting discharged within 8 hours
    for normal standby. If you see the video or listen music then it will get over
    within 2 hours completely. if you use dual sim, the battery will get over in 5
    to 6 hours.

    For rooting, the software is also not available in the market for rooting the
    mobile.

    Don’t wast your valuable money for purchasing it.

    Got for another good brand and good rooted mobile.


  4. Hey, the phone is nt good , every one hour I m doing charging without using. Getting heat when I removed in charger. Lot of drawbacks in this, u can buy and use this phone , u could realize why bougt this mobile. My best advice dont buy this phone.
