This device has managed to attract a lot of attention, and has been trending all over the internet from a couple of days. Did you guess the device? Yes, I’m talking about the Freedom 251 from a company named Ringing Bells.
And why is this smartphone so popular? It’s because of its price; the device costs just Rs. 251 and offers a features that are found in devices that cost at least a couple of thousand rupees. Many people will ask if the device is good enough to purchase at such a low price tag.
At first, the device looks strikingly similar to the iPhone, thanks to the round home button like the ones seen on Apple devices. The device has a large 4-inch IPS display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels.
It runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop and the icons have also been changed to look similar to those on iOS. The UI is rather smooth with 1.3 Ghz quad-core processor, and we couldn’t ask for more seeing its dirt cheap price. Moreover, the company has included a RAM capacity of 1 GB, which perfectly manages basic tasks. It has an internal storage of 8 GB, which can be expanded up to 32 GB via microSD card.
Despite sporting such a low price tag, the company has made no compromises in terms of connectivity. The Freedom 251 has dual SIM slots and supports 3G connectivity, which again is a big thing for the price it is being offered at. It also has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS for connecting with various services.
The Freedom 251 also has camera, and that too on both front and back of the device. There is a 3.2 MP with LED flash, and a 0.3 MP VGA front facing camera. The less about the camera quality, the better. It’s just fine, and comparing it with the camera quality of other devices would be a bit unfair on the part of Freedom 251.
The device has a battery capacity of 1450 mAh. For an unbelievable price of Rs. 251, the company has packed in a lot of features and there is nothing to complain about. Not only appraisal, the price tag has also stirred up a lot of controversies as the device with these specifications cannot be manufactured at such a low price. This is the other side of the story, but talking only about the device, we found it simply excellent.
You can grab one from their website- www.freedom251.com; the booking window will remain open till 21 Feb 2016 8 PM, and the device will be delivered by 30 June 2016, as claimed by the company.
