How low can be an Android phone be priced? That too a phone with a quad core processor and a 512 MB of RAM. Jivi, a new smartphone brand has introduced their new model, an ultra low priced Jivi JSP Q56, which is priced at just Rs.4,399. (that’s all you have to pay).
Processor & RAM
The handset is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad core processor, though they haven’t specified the processor, I’m pretty sure it is a MediaTek MT6589. The processor is pretty outdated and there are no much phones using this processor. But it was used by most budget quad core phones of the last year. It is a great processing unit, considering the price tag of the phone. The phone comes with 512 MB of ram, which can cause many issues with multi tasking at times.
Display & Battery
The phone sports a 4.5 inch display having a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. This is the same as the Android one phones. Considering the price, the display is very good and it is better than all other phones at this price point.
We have a pleasant surprise when it comes to the battery department. This phone is featuring a 2000 mAh battery! This should give the phone more than average battery life in normal use.
Camera & Storage
Coming to photography side, the phone comes with 8 MP primary and 2 MP secondary camera. This looks amazing on paper, as the 8 MP camera isn’t found in any other phone in this price range. The primary camera is accompanied by an LED flash too! This is a very very good configuration for the asking price.
Jivi JSP Q56 comes with an internal storage of 4 GB, which is complemented by external storage upto 32 GB.
Android/UI & Other Features
Jivi JSP Q56 comes pre-loaded with Android KitKat 4.4, which should run smoothly on the given low 512 MB RAM. (KitKat is optimized to run on phones that have 512 MB RAM). Also, as the UI is almost stock, which translates to better performance when compared with others such as Samsung’s TouchWiz.
The phone supports 3G, Wi-Fi & Bluetooth. And the device’s dimensions are 139 x 67.5 x 9.9 mm. The phone is available in Black and Blue color variants.
