iBerry has launched its Note Moniker challenger, iBerry Auxus Note 5.5, which will definitely draw attention thanks to the finger print scanner on board. But this is not the only ace it packs. The phone has Redmi Note like red capacitive keys and will retail exclusively on ebay starting 21 August. Getting down from the fingerprint scanner high horse, let’s take a look at what else iBerry’s Note 5.5 is offering.

Camera and Internal storage

iBerry has provided with a 13 MP rear shooter with LED flash support at the back, where as there is something for Selfie lovers too. The phone boast of an 8 MP front shooter as well for detailed selfies. Camera quality isn’t completely dependent on MegaPixel count but decent amount of pixels will add details to clicked images.

Internal storage is ample 16 GB and can be further expanded to 64 GB using MicroSD card support. This sure sounds like enough storage for everyone.

Processor and Battery

The processor used is MT6592 Octa core with 8 cortex A7 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz. The processor is aided by 2 GB RAM and Mali 450 MP4 GPU clocked at 700 GHz. Octa core processors are becoming quite common in 10k to 15k range, but the SoC is in no way a slouch. We expect this to suffice for heavy usage.

Battery capacity is 3200 mAh but iBerry hasn’t provided with any battery backup stats. Considering the MT6592 chipset and 5.5 Inch HD display, the battery seems to pack enough juice for one day moderate usage.

Display and Other Features

The display is 5.5 inches in size with 720p HD resolution amounting to average 267 pixels per inches. The display is IPS LCD OGS display which means you can expect good viewing angles and decent brightness. The display also uses Gorilla Glass Protection on top (might not be Gorilla Glass 3).

The software is Android 4.4 Kitkat which will provide with good android experience. You will also get NFC, USB OTG, 3G, WiFi and Micro USB connectivity options with iBerry Auxus Note 5.5.

The highlighted feature is ofcourse the unexpected finger print scanner. We are not big fans of finger print scanners we have seen so far. If it’s used for unlocking only, we don’t see ourselves using this feature in day to day usage, but it sure qualifies as a great marketing feature.

Comparison

iBerry Auxus Note 5.5 will compete with big-guns like Xiaomi Mi3, Xiaomi Redmi Note, Zenfone 5, Xolo 8X-1000, Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus and OBI Octopus S520.

Poor speed, Poor camera quality, poor service, get switched off frequently, more heating, poor battery performance, for every 30 its mandatory to change, After buying this product 3 times sent for service and one time it was replaced. Still facing the issue.

  5. Same here… using it for last 1 week.. Very good value for money… looks and design is superb…
    front cam is better than back camera… gives good selfies…


  6. Hi frendz, i got this mobile on saturday (20th sept) (on average use it will work upto 12-15 hrs. with Du battery))…very first thing is delivery was very very late as i ordered on 4th september. thats fine .. now come to point…mobile looks cool in hand ..its quite sleek and light weight.here is my review:

    pros:

    1.light weight and good looking

    2.interface is good and net works smoothly

    3.NFC is working

    4. 2GB RAM is one of best part

    5. Off screen gesture are good

    6. not lagging at all till now (after 3 days of use)

    cons.

    1.camera is very very poor (=2 MP)

    2. earphone are very poor

    3.heat up (upto 43-44 degree on gaming and nearly 40 on call and net browsing)

    4. sound is very low (but its just okay)

    *battery drains faster than you think (5-6 hour on wi-fi net) (but on average use it will work upto 12-15 hrs. with Du battery)


  7. Hi
    The phone handset is substandard. Camera is very poor quality. Wi-Fi signal strength drops after couple of minutes idle. Phone gets ridiculously hot on running a few apps or browsing or voice calling for a while. But the worst part is after sales service exists only for name. With two weeks of minimal usage and gentle handling, the display cracked spontaneously; all that iberry support did was void my warranty by examining a snapshot I sent. 14 k down the drain. . .
    Don’t buy!!!


  8. Write your review here (required) Consider : Why did you choose this rating ? What did you like or dislike? Who would you recommend this product to?Guys Really want to convey you that Please dont buy this phone. It is totally waste of Money. Pros : 1) Good Design and appearance only. Rest dont have any other words to say on Pros. Cons : 1) Poor battery back up Hardly runs 5 to 6 hours only when operated under 2G on 3G no words at all all went into veins. 2) Worst support from the seller as well as from EBAY (When I dont want this phone and want to return this they simply say this product is under warranty and contact iberry services. 3) Worst service support for this phone. 4) lot of bugs are there not able to find out were it is been run and how to solve this. 5) hangs a lot while playing the games opening the applications or opening a high end games 6) Again on call battery drains like anything. 7) camera is not that much great. It look like an normal 3 to 5 mega pixel quality and in night totally waste. 8) Some Red colour Square mark it is comes while changing the screen or opening any applications. 9) Huawei Honor 3 C is performing better than this believe me guys. 10) Phone gets heated on 2G Call itself while speaking of 5 mintues to 6 minutes only. Guys At last I can say only one thing my money is gone.


  9. yesterday. Camera quality and Battery backup is too poor. I have totally dissatisfied about the mobile. Also headset is very bad… I suggest do not buy this product.


  10. Worst phone. I sent it for DOA and they repaired it instead of replacement. They even hung up the phone when i was speaking. This phone has mutliple issue. DONT BUY.


  11. Before purchasing this phone, check if there is an iBerry service center in your area. If there is, then go ahead and get this phone.
    I purchased the Auxux Note 5.5 from ebay last month and it has been working fine and I have no complaints so far.
    With regards to battery life – if not using the phone, battery lasts for 2 days. But if using 3G or browsing then the battery will last for 24 hours. Gaming will obviously drain the battery even faster and you will notice slight heating will playing games but this normal on any smartphone. The phone is packed with features and true to its octa core processor, the phone works very fast and extremely smoothly. The Android Kitkat is not fussy and easy to navigate. The rear 13MP camera takes good pictures and video clarity is pretty decent.

    Don’t believe some of the negative comments posted here. They are written by competitors who have not even purchased the phone and are simply giving negative reviews to dissuade buyers. I can say for sure, for the rate of Rs.13,990 the phone with these specifications is worth the buy.


  12. hello deepak,i booked the note 5.5 , can u please tell me it will make me happy for one year period,it seems it worths 14 k


  13. I purchased the Auxux Note 5.5 from ebay 6 days ago and it has been working fine and I have no complaints so far.very worth product,internet high speed , no heat ,camera is good,ear phone quality is also good, wifi net battery discharge 8hours


  14. Dear all this phone is excellent. I had booked this phone on 21August 2014, the launching date. I got the phone after a week time and using this phone from 1st sept. No complain. Only little heat Sometime. I used Samsung note. And Galaxy. And many smart phone. Never seen phone like this. Its good and worth. All feature you get in Rs.40000/-, you get in this only 14000/-, I prefer this phone thousand time better then all branded phone. Only this company should provide service centre in all part of India. I have no problem but after all its an electronic so need service. Keep it up and when you are bringing the phone with 3gb ram.


    • I have found no positive points anywhere on web, and if u guess that competitors are giving negative views, you on the other hand can also be considered as a person from iberry side, who will never give bad review to support it.
