iBall Andi 4L PULSE: Windows Phone Yet Affordable
Windows phones are now being frequently launched owing to their unprecedented popularity. While Microsoft looks to play a pivotal role in this, many domestic companies are fast catching up. These manufacturers look to win the elusive budget crown with additional specs and options. One amongst these is iBall which is all set to release another affordable gadget as per the leaks and speculations country-wide. Termed as the Andi 4L PULSE, this gadget looks to be another affordable handset from the company. iBall has now extended its budget lineup quite a bit and the review concerning the are pretty good. The Andi 4L PULSE isn’t much of a high-end handset but would certainly live up to the myriad user expectations like other variants did from the same company.
Pros: The latest Operating System is supported as the Microsoft Office support looks pretty reasonable as well. The primary camera unit looks a decent pick for the given price. iBall has been pretty considerate regarding the RAM allotment. 3G support is certainly a great inclusion at the given price.
Cons: What falters is the battery unit which looks pretty meager. The internal memory support isn’t a sizeable inclusion whereas the screen layout clearly disappoints.
Here is a detailed review of the Andi 4L PULSE which is looks an entry-level Smartphone with Windows Phone 8.1 added along.
Looking at the previously grafted models from the same company we could infer that the Andi 4L PULSE would realize the pretty basic build quality. The expected design cues do not look great but are certainly equipped to do the job. Most of the physical buttons look pretty obvious over the hierarchy of the gadget whereas the dual SIM slots add to the flexibility of the same. The plastic slab doesn’t look that thick as per the images whereas the expandable storage slot is also on the expected lines.
The screen looks small but compact at 4 inches which is still a meager allotment even for this price. This TFT screen might not be a hit among those who are looking to read PDFs or play high-end games over the gadget. The offered resolution is 480x800 pixels, which translate into a pretty disappointing pixel density level. Color combinations expected are in the 256K range and the screen isn’t as vibrant as any other Windows empowered handset would be.
The layout gets the needed boost with the Windows Phone 8.1 as the operating system. This looks crisp and flexible even with the smaller screen size and the multiple support options add to the credibility of the handset. This has to be looked at closely for assuming most of the features involving multiple applications and better usage of the live tile support. The Microsoft Office support is more of an add-on which fits in perfectly with the included operating platform.
The expected innards look sharp and certainly justify the price tag to the fullest. The Qualcomm snapdragon 200 chipset a quite a good addition and the quad-core processor certainly fits in perfectly. All the four cores involved clock at a respectable 1.2GHz. This is pretty good for an entry level Smartphone which isn’t a pushover by any stretch of imagination.
The Andi 4L PULSE comes in with the 4GB internal storage limit. This actually can be a bit misleading as for the actual memory which the user might get. A larger chunk is taken up by the OS and some preinstalled applications even with the Windows 8.1 and the gadget offers something in excess of 2GB. One might always extend the same with the micro-SD slot which is on the expected lines as well. The RAM support is 1GB and the DDR3 make means that this is going to be a fast gadget which would be able to handle multitasking seamlessly enough.
The rear camera is allotted 5MP with autofocus spec included. The primary camera involves the BSI sensor and comes in with the LED flashlight. We aren’t quite sure regarding the performance and the inclusion of a front shooter hasn’t been specified as of yet.
The Andi 4L PULSE comes with the 1500mAh battery unit which isn’t an inspiring addition. 3G support is available which might drain the battery even more than the expected level.
At this price we can’t expect anything miraculous but the Andi 4L PULSE is something which justifies the tag precisely enough. The processor packs a punch but the lack of the front camera, if confirmed might not do down well with the selfie fanatics.
