iVooMi i1 review – for those looking for 18:9 experience for under Rs. 6K

iVooMi launched the i1 and the i1s recently and here is review of iVooMi i1. The i1s comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM and the i1 is loaded with 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM, that is the only difference. Hence you can consider this as the iVooMi i1s review too.

The handset looks good, feels good, comfortable to hold and the glossy looks along with the curvy body gives a premium look & feel. The handset is also a bit slimmer width wise and the 18:9 aspect screen gives a good usage experience.

iVooMi i1 is powered by Mediatek quad core processor – this processor is good for normal usage and really not for gaming users. Apart from the 18:9 screen this handset also comes with dual camera setup.

The dual cameras do not work as expected, do check the camera section for more details. Battery life is decent enough.

iVooMi i1 Gaming Review

The Asphalt 8 game was barely playable, even in very low visual quality mode. The lag was clearly visible. This handset is not for gaming users.

iVooMi i1 Camera  Review

Rear Camera : 13MP + 2MP, auto focus, LED flash
Front Camera : 8MP
Video Recording : HD resolution

Though this handset comes with dual cameras on the back, the dual camera mode or the bokeh mode is not at all impressive. The camera however, in normal mode, does a pretty good job. Day light shots turned out pretty impressive, but night shots / low light shots are not that great. So in all the camera quality is average.

Selfie turned out good and the handset can record HD videos and that too was decent enough.

Camera Rating : 3.7 out of 5
