Larger Screens and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich seem to be the current rage among Indian mobile users.
We have yet another Indian company joining this party with its new Dual Sim, Android 4.0 powered, 5-inch IPS display screen called iBall Andi 5c. And this iBall Smartphone comes for a competitive price of Rs. 12,999.
This phone is expected to rival latest arrivals like the Micromax A100, the Spice Horizon Mi-500 and others. While Micromax takes a beating in terms of pricing of the phone, Spice Mi-500 falls a bit short when it comes to the battery of the phone. Let us have a closer look at the specs of this Smartphone from iBall.
Andi 5c Specifications and Features
- Dual Sim (GSM+GSM)
- A large 5 inch IPS screen.
- Runs on Android v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
- 1 GHz Cortex A9 Processor.
- 5 MP primary camera and a front camera for video chatting.
- 4 GB internal storage available, expandable to 32 GB (This is fast becoming a standard for Smartphones!).
- Powered by a powerful 2300 mAh battery.
The Andi 5c is a dual sim phone, giving you value for your money and placing it apart from its nearest competitors. But apart from the 5 inch IPS screen, large battery and the dual sim, the phone does not have many features to be overly excited especially with the likes of Micromax A100 and Stellar Horizon featuring pretty much similar features. Also, A100 is priced at about Rs. 10k, which is 3000 rupees cheaper. The only big difference between the two being IPS screen and slightly larger battery.
But what would benefit the company is its earlier reputation. iBall has for long been a successful player in the computer accessory market and every one trusts iBall’s quality. This factor could go in the company’s favor and bring a lot of business to it.
After pioneering the computer accessory market, iBall seems intent in making a place in the Smartphone market.
The company recently launched two other Smartphones Andi 3e and Andi 4d. The Andi 3e is priced at Rs. 6,990 and the Andi 4e has been priced at Rs. 9,490.
