iBall Andi 4.5q Review – Kick or Pick
I didn’t thought to write review on iBall’s newly launched low budget smartphone “Andi 4.5q“, but when I came to site where I found a review about iball Andi 4.5q which was miss guiding about this handset. So, i decided to write about this handset, what does it actually worth and how much it is powerful. Well this new phone stand up against many handsets including Micromax A89, LAVA Iris 405 and some more. This review covers all technical specification, comparison with other handset and actual worth and how much it is powerful and compatible to run games and application.
The reviews does not covers basic features such as operating system, size, weight, camera and connectivity features because mostly all phone carries these same features in this kind of price tag. Our main focus will on main features including display screen, graphic capability and processor performance.
Display & Touch Screen
iBall Andi 4.5q comes with 4.5 inches qHD display screen which offer 540 x 960 pixels resolution, which is exactly one quarter of a Full HD (1080p) frame, in a 16:9 aspect ratio. Over display screen, it is fitted with capacitive multi-touch screen. The same qHD resolution is featured in many high end devices including the Sony Xperia P, HTC Evo 3D, Motorola Droid RAZR, and Galaxy S4 mini.
This impressive resolution, makes images and text more clear and also Portable PlayStation Vita also does carries the same resolution too. None of any other competitor does offer this kind of resolution and it make iBall Andi 4.5q stand at top against them. In terms of display screen, it deserve full marks.
Graphic & Gaming Performance
The handset is featured with PowerVR SGX 531 GPU chip, launched in Oct 2006 this GPU chip supports OpenGL ES 2.0 and clocked at 200 MHz speed. Well the chip is outdated and may cause in-compatibility with many heavy and new games. Its not bad to play games such as Subway Surfer, Asphalt 5, Asphalt 6 and 7 (but you’ll face little slowness and less smoothness ) and many other games.
The GPU chip could be better as other alternatives such Karbonn A9+ offers Aderno 203 which is much better than what featured in Andi 4.5q. The same chip is featured in Micromax A89 and LAVA Iris 405. Although, all the three phones carries same amount of RAM and other connectivity features. So, overall it is less satisfactory but other alternatives too offering this chip.
Now about the most important feature of any smartphone, Andy 4.5q comes with MediaTek MT6577 1GHz Cortex A9 dual core processor. The good thing about this processor is that it is of Cortex A9, which is relatively new and give high performance with less uses of power. Compare to other, Micromax A89 and Lava Iris 405 does carries the same processor but Karbonn A9+ carries Cortex A5 processor which is out dated and cause crashes while running apps and games.
Back to Andi 4.5q, the processor is capable to give you very smooth experience while having fun with games and running multiple application at one time. It overcomes the down side of GPU chip and together bring good experience while playing games with HD support. But I want to mention one thing, together GPU and CPU does well but due to outdated GPU chip you won’t be able to run games and apps (eg. Next Launcher v1.32 or above) which are made to run on new architecture.
Conclusion: Kick or Pick
Well it is pretty hard to compare it with other handset, as other too offers the same hardware and software specification but there is one main advantage of Andi 4.5q over other rival, that is it comes with 4.5 inch qHD screen, which is much bright and offers good resolution to play games and watch videos. In this price tag, no other company is offering qHD screen, so it good to have better one when you have to choose from almost same specified gadgets. So, our recommendation is pick this handset.
