iVooMi launched the Me3 and the Me3s handset in India recently. The key highlight about these 4G VoLTE supported handset is that it comes with shatterproof display. Here is the iVooMi Me3S review, do check the video for drop test and if the display is really shatter proof.
iVooMi Me3s comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM, another variant the Me3 comes with 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM priced a little cheaper. Rest of the features are the same. Me3s is powered by MediaTek quad core processor that is not that powerful but good enough for normal work / usage.
Handset does heat up but the battery temp is under 45 degrees so no issues. Battery life is okay, had expected better with a 3000 mAh battery. This handset is for those who have accidentally dropped many handsets and are more worried about the screen cracking again.

iVooMi Me3S Gaming Review
I tried Asphalt 8 in high quality mode and it lagged, the game worked in low quality mode. Hardware can play games in low quality mode. Not for gaming users, plus there was G-Sensor calibration issue. This G-Sensor Calibration can be fixed via software updates.

The camera quality is average, however the day light shots were quite impressive, low light shots were not that great. Selfie camera is also okay. This handset can shoot 720p videos.

There is no finger print sensor on this handset. Screen is shatter proof, looks like it is a plastic screen, it is really tough but does not crack, in fact the screen might get some minor scratches.

Battery Test Results
Battery Temp at idle : 34 degrees
Running Benchmark app : 17 minutes / 5% / 39 degrees
Asphalt 8 game play : 17 minutes / 8% / 43 degrees
HD video playback with full brightness (WiFi /4G on) : 37 minutes / 13% / 40 degrees
iVooMi Me3s is a not so powerful handset, performance is okay, not for gaming, camera is average and battery is just about okay. But when it comes to toughness this handset can survive drops from height of up to 4 feet even more and nothing is going to happen to the screen.
A good option for serial handset droppers.
