Let’s speak about real life usage of the iVoomi Me 2 and go through the brief review for the smartphone.
Being an entry-level smartphone, iVoomi has managed to pack decent specs for Rs. 3,999. Starting off with the design and display, the iVoomi Me 2 has a full plastic body and comes in Black, Champagne Gold color options.
This is expected because there’s a not even a single smartphone with the metal body under Rs. 5,000.
Regarding display, the Me 2 has a 4.5-inch FWVGA display (854*480), which doesn’t inspire confidence at all because the colors are oversaturated and the viewing angles are terrible. However, you can’t expect much for Rs. 3,999 though.
It does the job of surfing the net, reading your latest WhatsApp messages and scrolling the FaceBook feed.
Hardware and Performance
Hardware wise, the Me 2 is powered by a Quad-core MediaTek MT6735 chipset, which is an entry-level processor it gets the job done for basic tasks such as opening camera app, dialer app, messaging app, etc. The USP of the device is the 2 GB of RAM.
The Key highlight of the Phone is presence of 2 GB RAM, Android Nougat & 4G at just Rs. 3999 – unbelieveable specs for such affordable price.
Yes, you heard it right, iVoomi is offering 2 GB of RAM at Rs. 3,999, which is a great thing and something which you won’t find on any other device.
The smartphone also has 16 GB of internal storage, which is yet another rarity in the device because most of the smartphone brands either add 4 GB or 8 GB of storage. There’s a microSD card slot as well for storage expansion up to 64 GB.
OS and Connectivity
As said earlier, the iVoomi Me 2 runs Android 7.0 Nougat OS out-of-the-box, which is a USP for the device. The software is optimised perfectly for the device’s hardware, which is an appreciated work from iVoomi. There is not much lag, and it can work efficiently with 2 GB Ram and Mediatek 6735 processor.
iVoomi ME 2 Camera
Optics wise, the iVoomi Me 2 has an 8 MP primary camera at the back, paired with an LED flash. The device also comes with a 5 MP front-facing camera. However, the cameras are underwhelming on the smartphone, which is an expected thing.
Though the Megapixel count is higher, though the camera takes time to focus and click images and is still okay in daylight at night, you can’t click anything with it.
Connectivity and Battery Life
The iVoomi Me 2 smartphone comes with 4G LTE, VoLTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and USB OTG support. You can use the iVoomi Me2 with the Reliance JIO sim card and also with the other operator sim cards.
The addition of support for 4G VoLTE is yet another good move by iVoomi. iVoomi is backing the device with a 2000 mAh battery, which is expected to last for one complete day.
The iVoomi Me 2 is a great addition to the ever-growing product portfolio of iVoomi. And this smartphone is for users who’re looking to purchase a device for basic needs. The smartphone comes with class-leading specs at a very affordable price which makes it a desirable option for many first time Android phone buyers.
