Most phones in the Rs 5,000-6,000 category tend to come with only 1 GB of RAM, and the new model is a welcome break from the trend.
Rival Intex recently launched its Aqua Strong 5.1 which is priced Rs 1,0000 lower (at Rs 4,999) and comes with similar specifications. However, that model has only 1 GB of RAM.
Similarly, InFocus M370i, another big hitter in this price band, also carries the same 5k pricetag, but like the Intex model, has only 1 GB of RAM. The phone also has a 2 GB version, which comes at a price of Rs 6,199.
The new model, therefore, is likely to appeal to those who want to future proof their phone by having at least 2 GB of RAM. Phones with 1 GB of RAM could become laggy after 6 months to a year of use due to the proliferation of high-memory-footprint apps.
Disappointingly though, the iBall model comes with a poor 854*480 resolution. The M370i, however, has an HD display, which has 10 lakh dots on its screen compared to 4 lakh dots on the other two models mentioned above.
Here is some description about the model from the company.
