Earlier this year, Celkon assured that it will be rolling out a plethora of Android KitKat based smartphones with reasonable price tags. As mentioned, the vendor has been launching numerous handsets with the latest one being the Millennium Ultra Q500. The handset is priced attractively at Rs 9,999 and here is a quick review of the smartphone available for purchase on Snapdeal.

Camera and Internal Storage

The primary camera unit in the Celkon Millennium Ultra Q500 is an 8 MP sensor that is coupled with auto focus and LED flash for better low light performance. At the front, the handset boasts of a 2 MP selfie shooter that will take charge of video conferencing. At this pricing, many smartphones arrive with similar photography aspects making the Celkon offering a standard one.

The internal storage is ample at 16 GB and this can be extended up to 32 GB using a micro SD card. The incorporation of 16 GB storage capacity to this smartphone is a great aspect as not many handsets in the sub Rs 10,000 price bracket are bundled with such huge storage capacities.

Processor and Battery

The chipset used is similar to the one used in the Celkon Millennium Vogue Q455. It is a 1.2 GHz quad-core Broadcom BSM23550 graphics unit. This processor is teamed up with 2 GB of RAM for efficient multi-tasking. This hardware combination should be sufficient for a decent performance and multi-tasking experience as the chipset is power efficient with the ability to conserve the battery life of the smartphone.

A 2,500 mAh battery unit is included in the Celkon smartphone and it is believed to render a decent backup to the device with its power efficient processor.

Display and Features

Celkon has given the handset a 5 inch HD IPS display with a screen resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and a pixel density of 293 pixels per inch. While the IPS display is claimed to render good viewing angles, the OGS panel is likely to make the screen more responsive despite keeping the handset thin.

The Celkon Millennium Ultra Q500 is fueled by Android 4.4 KitKat operating system and packs the usual connectivity features such as dual SIM, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.

Comparison

The Celkon Millennium Ultra Q500 will be a direct rival to the smartphones such as New Moto G, Lava X604 Magnum, Asus Zenfone 5 and Intex Aqua Style Pro to mention a few.
