iVoomi fo­cuses on the low-bud­get con­sumer’s needs and brings two de­vices Me1 and Me1 Plus at the price of 3,999 and 4,999 re­spec­tively. Sur­pris­ingly, the low-bud­get phone has HD screen and 1GB RAM, mean­ing no com­pro­mise in terms of specs but what about the per­for­mance, let’s find out…

Build qual­ity: Con­sid­er­ing the price, I can’t ex­pect to get the pre­mium body, still, iVoomi used the solid plas­tic body for the phone. With av­er­age build qual­ity, the phone has 2.5D curved-edge glass on the front but now sure about pro­tec­tion.

It sports Mi­cro-USB ports and 3.5mm au­dio sock­ets on the top. The re­mov­able back cover gives you ac­cess to SIM slots and mi­croSD card slots and re­mov­able bat­ter­ies. Amaz­ingly, the phone sup­ports 4G and VoLTE.

Screen and cam­era: Me1 Plus has 5-inch HD screen which you won’t see in de­vices avail­able at this price range, While it has HD screen still screen is av­er­age, col­ors are ac­cu­rate but view­ing an­gles are not great. It has de­cent bright­ness but it can trou­ble you in di­rect sun­light.

iVoomi Me1 Plus has 8 MP cam­era at the back and 5 MP at the front. Us­ing the rear cam­era you can cap­ture de­cent qual­ity images in day­light with ac­cu­rate col­ors, but low light shots are dull and filled with noise. Cam­era fo­cus is also poor and you need to strug­gle with it. The front cam­era is de­cent but as like rear, you can’t ex­pect qual­ity images.

Per­for­mance: Though it comes at 5K, yet packs above av­er­age hard­ware. It runs on stock An­droid 6.0 Marsh­mal­low, mak­ing it a good phone for light us­age. You can en­joy movies and light games on the phone with­out any hic­cups, but mul­ti­task­ing is a pain. Also, you can eas­ily see per­for­mance lag while play­ing high graph­ics in­ten­sive games.

Packed with 3000 mAh bat­tery, the phone can last for a day with mod­er­ate us­age. If you are play­ing games, cap­tur­ing shots or watch­ing the video then it won’t last for even a day. On video loop test, it lasted for 4 hours and 42 min­utes, while play­ing video over WiFi with full bright­ness and vol­ume.

Bot­tom­line: iVoomi tar­geted low-bud­get seg­ment, which doesn’t have many de­vices. Me1 Plus has good spec­i­fi­ca­tion plus it can han­dle light apps and games. With above av­er­age per­for­mance and a de­cent cam­era, it’s only for those who have a tight bud­get.

KEY SPECS: 5.00-inch (720x1280 pix­els) screen, 1.5GHz quad­core CPU, 2 GB RAM, 8 MP rear and 5 MP front cam­era, An­droid 6.0, 16 GB ROM, 3000 mAh bat­tery PROS: HD screen, ac­cept­able cam­era CONS: Bat­tery, av­er­age over­all per­for­mance
