Smartron launched the P and it will go on sale from 17th Jan 2018, at 12PM. This is Qualcomm SD 435 octa core powered, features a 5.2 inch HD screen and packed with a 5000 mAh battery all this for Rs. 7,999. Is it worth it? read this review to know more.

This is an excellent phone that you can buy for Rs. 7,999. It looks a bit different thanks to the glossy side design. Even though the handset houses a 5000 mAh battery it does not weigh that much, weight with battery is 160 grams.

Performance is lag free, P is running stock android and heat build up is under control. No doubt battery life is impressive.  The only thing is that the camera quality is average, which is acceptable. Overall an impressive phone, with a tempting price tag.

I played Asphalt 8 in high quality mode and it did really well. The 435 octa core with 5.2 inch screen and 720p resolution played well, game play was smooth and lag free.

Smartron P Camera  Review

Rear Camera : 13MP, LED flash
Front Camera : 5MP
Video Recording : FHD resolution

Coming to the camera you will find some interesting features in the camera app. There is HDR mode too. Day light shots were really good but low light / night shots were not that sharp. Overall camera quality is average.

FHD videos quality was good and so was the selfie shots.

Asphalt 8 game play : 16 minutes / 3% / 37 degrees
FHD video playback with full brightness (WiFi /4G on) :  25 minutes / 4% / 33 degrees


Another really good handset worth the price. The camera is average but apart from that all other features are pretty impressive. A very good buy for the price, however today 18:9 is the latest trend and that might keep some users away from this handset.

If you are looking for a really good smartphone with an excellent battery life, this is the one.
