iVoomi on Tuesday announced two new smartphones in India, the Me 3 and the Me 3S. Both the devices are entry level smartphones with the Me 3S launching for around Rs. 7,000. The thing which makes this smartphone stand out from others is the presence of a shatterproof display. With the Me 3S it was interesting to see how the company managed to get a shatterproof display at a very low price.
The iVoomi Me 3S features a 5.2-inch HD IPS display which has a 2.5D Curve glass and has a resolution of 720x1280 pixels and a pixel density of 320ppi. The device runs on a MediaTek MT6737 processor clocking at 1.25 GHz which is coupled with 3GB of RAM. The 3S also features unbreakable Touch panel with a feather touch. Internal memory on the Me 3S is a 32GB storage which has an option to expand up to 128GB. The body of the device is a plastic build. The device has a removable back and also a removable battery. The battery on the smartphone is a 3000mAh battery.
On the optics front, the device sports a 13-megapixel primary sensor which has an aperture of f/2.2. Up front, the phone comes with an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with LED-flash for better selfies under low lighting conditions.
Hands on Review
iVoomi has produced a solid entry level smartphone. The plastic body of the smartphone doesn't feel cheap to hold in hand. The curved edges and the 2.5D glass makes the 5.2-inch device perfect to hold in one hand. The device also has separate slots for two SIM cards and a microSD card. The back is removable similar to the battery which is also removable, which is a surprise to see as most devices have a non-removable battery nowadays. The display is bright and colourful and doesn't lack anything even with a 720p display. Me 3S is running on Android 7.0 rather than 7.1.1, it's running on custom UI developed by iVoomi which is very similar to the stock experience minus a few changes. We witnessed no Bloating while using the smartphone.
The front camera does a fairly good job on the selfies and can click photos in low light thanks to the front LED-flash. The primary camera clicks impressive photos for its price. The photos don't get pixelated and the colour is also quite decent.
The iVoomi Me 3S all round is a very good device for under Rs.8,000 budget market and will give a run for their money to any competition right now.
