Question- How is the Design and Build Quality?
Answer- Smartron is touting the t.phone as the lightest phone in its category. Use of plastic for the outer shell helps with this, but Smartron has given it a metal finish. Plastic is not necessarily bad, though. The Smartphone t.phone feels good in hands and comes in peppy colours, so it will stand out from the rest of the phones in its price range.

At INR 22,999, this phone offers a good display, decent camera, Android Marshmallow, and 4 GB RAM with Snapdragon 810, which looks powerful on paper but the chipset is now outdated. As far as my initial thoughts are concerned, I feel the phone falls slight above the price it should come for. It is never easy for a debutant to sell their phone at such high price in India, especially when consumers expect a premium metal body and a standard fingerprint sensor.
