In the hood: Swipe elite plu
Swipe elite plus comes with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset which runs on 1.5GHz with Octa-Cores, which enables you to play high end games and use applications without any lags smoothly, powering it up swipe elite plus runs with 2GB RAM, which helps in efficiency of the phone, coming to graphics its powered with Adreno 405 GPU which helps running big games like asphalt 8 smoothly on the device, while in swipe elite plus, internal memory is 16GB, Swipe comes with microSD slot which is expandable upto 64GB, plus you have the Swipe box which gives you 100GB of cloud storage, where you can store all your photos and files at ease.
the phone is powered up with a huge 3050mAh battery which can give you upto 15 hours of battery life on normal use, in my case i had the charge whole day, but sill had to charge it at end of the day, which is pretty good for a budget phone, in the hood we can find two SIM slots which both support upto 4gLTE which is great for fast networks and video calling services.
The Eye: camera
well i was pretty overwhelmed when i saw that it performed more than what i had expected from a budget phone like this, we have a 13 mega-pixel rear camera with f/2.0 aligned with LED flash, from the fact that samsung sensor is being used, the images took from the rear camera is pretty good, even in low light conditions the focus was pretty good, though the LED flash doesn’t do the job, the camera itself is pretty good for the mid-ranged device, coming to the front shooter we have a 8 mega pixel front camera, which shoots sharp selfies, quite great enough for the phone, i liked the part that both front and back cameras produced a vibrant image, which is rare.
OS and Bloatware?
Swipe Elite Plus comes with Android 5.0.2 preloaded out of the box, you may get Marshmallow soon on it, though swipe elite plus is running on a custom skinned android called freedom OS,is developed by the swipe developers, which is near to the stock android experience, but also comes with few preloaded apps and services, which sometimes turn out to be good, but at the end of the day we all dislike bloat wares, they cause performance lags on almost all times,though they are actually built into to enhance user experience.
Freedom OS comes with tons of features,for customizing your phone, it enables you to change icons,backgrounds and modify other things in your drawer and dock,which is pretty good, also it comes with a prebuilt toggle in notification bar with most used toggles, which also show up on your lockscreen, freedom OS is built to give user a enhanced experience of the android Lollipop,
few words from me..
i personally liked the design and the weight of the device,although it has almost all features a mid-ranged devices have these days, but still weighs as light as 131 gm, being in a budget phone industry is a bit tough, every now and then a phone releases in the range, but i would pick swipe elite plus for the only reason that its so light and neat, camera is good, processor is latest, everything is a charm,
