iVoomi recently launched two new smartphones which made a debut to their flagship line-up of smartphones. The two recently launched phones are dubbed as iVoomi Me3 and Me3S. Me3S being the higher variant. The USP (Unique Selling Proposition) of the smartphone is its shatterproof display. Here is our in-depth review of the iVoomi Me3.
iVoomi Me3 features a 5.2-inch HD IPS LCD display with a resolution of 720x1280 pixels. There is a 2.5D curved glass up front which is said to be shatterproof. The smartphone is powered by a 64-bit MediaTek MT6737 SoC which is a quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz. The device comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. All of this is backed by a 3,000mAh battery. The Me3 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
On the optics front, the Me3 features an 8-megapixel camera at the back with a LED flash. Up front, the device sports an 8-megapixel camera with selfie flash.
The iVoomi Me3 is all about the shatterproof display which is the part of the design of the smartphone. It was interesting to see who the company managed to fit in a shatterproof display at such a low budget and still installed a 2.5D curved glass in order to keep up the design. The manufacturing unit did not make any compromises with the design despite making it a shatterproof display smartphone. The Me3 also comes with a removable back panel as well as a removable battery.
The shatterproof display being the unique selling proposition of the smartphone, we had to do some drop tests. We dropped the smartphone from average heights like the pocket level or the shoulder level which are the most common places from where a person drops his smartphone. Surprisingly, the display of the iVoomi Me3 did not shatter and was intact.
The performance of the iVoomi Me3 was as expected on a budget-oriented smartphone. The Me3 was able to handle some decent tasks thrown at it. It was easily handling social media applications like Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and Twitter without any problem. We were also able to play some lightweight games like Temple Run and Subway Surfers during our review period. However, games like Asphalt 8 struggled which is understandable considering the price tag.
The 3,000mAh battery on the iVoomi Me3 was decent considering the price of the smartphone and was able to deliver a full working day of battery life with minimal to medium usage. However, with heavy usage, one would need to charge up the smartphone once again before the sun sets. Also, we understand that compromises are to be made in lieu of the shatterproof display.
Surprisingly, the iVoomi Me3 delivers some great images from its rear camera despite being a budget smartphone. When compared to the smartphones in the same price range, the camera on the Me3 is quite impressive. Even in the indoor lighting conditions, the phone does not tend to struggle a lot. The front-facing 8-megapixel camera also delivers some decent shots and the selfie flash helps under low lighting conditions.
The iVoomi Me3 flaunts a shatterproof display which is unbelievable at the price of a budget-oriented smartphone. The Me3 retails for Rs. 5,499 which makes the shatterproof display interesting to see. Another interesting thing about this smartphone is that the company did not compromise with the design of the smartphone to get that shatterproof display to life. Surprisingly, iVoomi made it possible to install a 2.5D curved glass with the shatterproof display technology. The shatterproof display also passed all our drop tests without any issues. Apart from the design and the shatterproof display, the Me3 comes with a decent camera which can take some good shots which are even better than some other smartphone at a similar price range.
