The specs on Olive Fluid are nothing to die for (Like the slow processor or the outdated Android version) but we have to look at the price range it is being offered at. There is no dearth of Android phones in India. Most of the phones are concentrated at the top-end of the segment like the Samsung’s HTC’s and LG’s. It is the Olive’s, Spice’s and Micromax’s which are slugging it out at the low-end segment.
Videocon and Spice have Android phones at this price range. Olive Fluid is carefully positioned in the booming Android market. With the Price of 10K, Olive has entered the less suffocating price segment and will join our cheapest Android phones list. A capacitive touch screen is a added benefit for Olive Fluid.
