iVooMi Me5 review – Low cost VoLTE smartphone, is it worth it?

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
