SWIPE ELITE 2 PLUS REVIEW
Swipe Telecommunications is the company behind this masterpiece who has earned a name for itself in the Indian market, generally overruled by tech giants ruling the smartphone markets all over the world. But, Swipe is an Indian start-up who established its name in the year 2012 by making the first 3D-Tablet, they even won an award of ‘MOST INNOVATIVE DRIVEN COMPANY’ of 2012.
Swipe Telecommunication is a self-driven company who’s goal is to satisfy digital needs of every Indian. They have come up with great cheap smartphones like Swipe Elite, Swipe sense etc. That are basically for average users who want low budget smartphones to fulfil basic needs.
The Swipe Elite 2 plus is the successor of Elite 2 which was launched in 2015, and its success inspired them to make another phone which is slightly high on specs, and low in price which gave birth to the Elite 2 plus.
Swipe has been making decent looking smartphones that are budget oriented rather than customer oriented. The Swipe Elite 2 Plus, has a decent design with good looks that will attract customers, and it doesn’t look like a ₹5000 phone by looks.
It has a decent texture finish which looks really good with an imprint of ELITE written on the back panel of this smartphone.
Swipe Elite 2 plus has a decent 5.0″inch VGA display with 854x480p resolutions with 196 PPI. We cannot hope for anything like a Full HD display or a 720p display at the price of ₹ 5000 you and it’s a pretty average display even for this price range.
Elite 2 Plus is powered by a Cortex A7 Quad core processor, with a clock speed of 1.5 GHz, paired with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage which can further be expanded upto 32GB which is good for this price range.
It performs well for normal usages like playing light games or surfing internet which is normal for every user, but it does lag when we overload it with multi-tasks for heavy usage which are given, for a low budget smartphone.
The Swipe Elite 2 Plus sports a 5 MP front shooter which is like an ordinary camera designed to do its job nothing more than that, the pictures that were taken in daylight are okay for this price range. It also has a 2 MP front camera.
This Smartphone comes with the android OS version 5.1 Lollipop which is pretty much out-dated. Certainly, a let-down for this great low budget device which can lead to be costly for Swipe Elite 2 plus.
The Swipe Elite plus surely backs a decent amount of battery backup, sporting a 2500 mAh Li-Ion battery which has a very good screen on time. As the performance is optimized accordingly for 1 GB RAM, the battery spent on performing heavy tasks also decreases significantly which can also be a plus point for Swipe Elite 2 Plus.
