iVooMi recently launched Me4 and the Me5 smartphones in India. Here is the iVooMi Me5 review, this is upgraded version of Me 1+ and it is better than its predecessor. Me5 is VoLTE supported smartphone that comes for an attractive price of Rs. 4,499.

This is another low cost VoLTE smartphone that houses a Spreadtrum quad core chipset. This handset is not that powerful but considering the VoLTE support and 3000 mAh battery, plus 2GB RAM and a screen with 720p resolution it does looks quite tempting.

After going through this review you will be in a better position to decided if you want to buy this handset or not. Overall performance is good, as mentioned processor is not that powerful so expect a slow performance. Camera is good considering the price and battery life is also pretty good.

IVooMi Me5 Gaming Review

Since this handset is not that powerful I tried only the Asphalt 8 game, it is playable in Medium quality mode, though not really that smooth but in very low quality the game does really well.

IVooMi Me5 Camera  Review

Rear Camera : 8MP, LED flash, Auto Focus
Front Camera : 5MP, fixed focus
Video Recording : 720p (HD) resolution

The rear camera does a good job, camera quality is average, good enough considering the price. There are several modes and there is a manual mode too that gives you limited option, in fact shutter control option is missing hence makes it useless.

The Me5 camera can shoot HD videos, video quality is decent. Front selfie shot turned out just about okay. The camera quality is good enough to share online, but not that good when watching on a PC.

Camera Rating : 3.3 out of 5

    1. Pankaj, seems like there is some issue with handset, try other SIM’s and see if that works if not then get back to place / site from where you got the handset. You will get a replacement.

    1. You need to make sure that 4G is enabled on the SIM you are using JIO and there is VoLTE option in settings that should also be on.

  9. Gogi bro I received this phone today. Everything was good until I saw model number Me1+ in the settings. It seems they are selling Me1+ in the box of Me5 by upgrading it to Android Nougat (7.0), because both devices are exactly same except Android version. Can you please confirm the model number you have?

    1. Yes it is Me 1+ in settings that’s because they use the same software (ROM) on this one too.

  10. Hi Gogi, can you please do the reviews in English as well? There are alot of non Hindi speaking people waiting for reviews. Thanks..

  11. Mr Rana, please do a review of Me 4 also, lot of Indians find 3.5 k price of that handset also more affordable. Thanks.

  12. Any other brand giving android N 2GB+16GB 3000 mAh battery HD screen below 5K ?

    If no then one can go ahead and buy this

  13. Don’t buy this phone, better to add 1.5k and buy Redmi 4a or upcoming You Yunique 2.
