Others

Sound is loud and clear and much better thanks to DTS premium sound with DTS PlayFi. I did not find any issues with 4G, WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth. There is no finger print sensor on this handset, unfortunately.

Another unique thing about the Smartron t.phone is the t.cloud access with unlimited cloud storage, t.store IOT market place and t.care your remote care app.

Battery

There is a 3000 mAh non-removable battery. It does a good job you can expect 4 to 7 hours of non-stop moderate to heavy usage. On a full charge the handset will last for a day with moderate usage.
