Indian brand iVooMi has launched another smartphone in the entry-level segment dubbed as the V5. The smartphone carries a price tag of Rs. 3,499. Is the latest offering from iVooMi worth its cost? Let’s find out.
Display and Design
On the front, the phone features a 5-inch LCD display having a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. This isn’t the crispest display in the market but for its asking price, it’s just about alright. The phone does come with a shatterproof glass technology which should add to its durability. Below the display is where the phone has three capacitive keys for navigating on its user interface. Since the V5 is an entry-level smartphone, it does not come with a bezel-less display.
Performance and Storage
Underneath its hood, the quad-core Spreadtrum SC9832 runs the show. It is clocked at 1.2GHz which helps it maintain efficiency as well as not being underpowered at the same time. However, it must be noted that this processor coupled with 1GB of RAM is just alright to handle daily tasks like calls, texts and very light gaming, nothing in excess of it. On the storage front, the phone ships with 8GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 128GB through a microSD card. The phone does have a dedicated card slot so you don’t have to choose between expandable storage and using the second SIM.
Camera and Software
The iVooMi V5 has a 5-megapixel primary camera sensor located on the back which is complemented by an LED flash. On the front, there is another 5-megapixel snapper for capturing selfies and video calling purposes. As far as software goes, the phone runs a slightly dated Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. There is no official word on whether the device will be updated to Oreo anytime soon.
Battery and Connectivity
There is a 2,800 mAh battery located within the phone which keeps it powered. This is a relatively small battery, but considering the low-resolution display that has to be powered, it can last well through a day. On the connectivity front, the phone checks the right boxes and offers support for 2G, 3G, 4G with VoLTE, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.
The phone is offered in Jade Black and Champagne Gold colour variants and will be available exclusively through Snapdeal. iVoomi has also collaborated with Reliance Jio and offer a cashback of Rs. 2,200 with this smartphone.
