The Swipe Elite Plus was launched yesterday with a price tag of Rs. 6,999. I have already done the review of this smartphone in January 2016, yes way back at the beginning of 2016, how? time machine, well no, it was the TCL Pride T500l review – Swipe Elite Plus is equal to TCL Pride T500l.

We saw two instances, the first one was with the YU Yunicorn that was strikingly similar to Meizu M3 note and now here is another one from Swipe, called the Elite Plus that is exactly the TCL Pride T500L.

So jump over to Pride T500L review to know more about the hardware performance. It makes no sense doing the review of Swipe Elite Plus, just check the T500L review and think you are watching the Swipe Elite Plus review.

The handset is really good, T500L was selling for around 10K at that time and now the same thing with a name change – Swipe Elite Plus is selling for Rs. 6,999. It is a good option for this price tag.

  1. HI i purchased month back swipe Elite plus mobile battery is very poor automatically getting heat charging time mobile got exposed really worst mobile

  2. Phone is very good but the battery is not.. Drains too fast.. Apart from battery n heating the phone is awesome..

  3. There seems to be many improvements in this model over tcl pride. Front camera is 8 mp instead of 5mp. The software has much customization. As per indiannerv review the camera has rating of 9/10. Any chance of fresh review?

  4. Snapdragon 615 heats a lot
    And missing finger print scaner
    These are only two draw back i can see.
    But @7000rs it is very good one, it is tge top one @ 7000 rs ( i am thinking 3050 mah of swipe is better than 2500 mah of coolpad , i am now select phones with good battery back up)

  5. my worst experience with flipkart. this is worst quality phone. the octa-core processor is of no use. 1gb ram phones run better than is not that good as compared to same configurations. hanging issue + voice of phone is so worst. please do not buy this phone. flipkart is not giving return policy on this phone. dont buy . i just wasted my 6999. flipkart is a worst e commerce company in respect of mobile. please share and save people from being be fooled..

    1. Flipkart is hiding all negative reviews.

      Rest reviews seems to be positive but doubt they are cooked up stories or paid one’s……

      Do not buy anything from flipkart.

      1. Such a eye-opening, I appreciate that these comments are not yet deleted, and the fact that some sites remove negative reviews is such an unethical business practice implemented these days.

  6. Coolpad note 3 lite vs Swipe Elite Plus vs Redmi 2 Prime-which is the best phone in terms of overall performence?

  7. Good Review Gogi. Keep it up.

    Reg. the phone, 2GB RAM may not be sufficient these days and no fingerprint makes it to go out of the game.

    1. hey, i have been using the phone & its awesome. Havent faced any issues yet.

    1. But it has HD resolution, quad core but gives FHD, FPS and 3gb ram. Again swipe is not listed in but coolpad listed.

  8. Mi4i still stands as one of the best mid range of 2015 among phones running on sd615 If not for the non expandable memory. And it’s still running strong especially with its new update which solved the heating issue. There hasn’t been any phone which could offer quite the experience like it did.

    1. Rightly said… It is still good with that 5″ screen which is comfortable with brilliant display.

  9. But tcl have more brand value than swipe. Maybe some people who had doubts about Swipe maybe more happy to hear it’s TCL, not any other lesser known cheap Chinese.

  10. Copy cat price ke mamle me sher.. impressive price hai much btr tjn any mmx phon

        1. Hardware is same and most of the time it’s the UI skin over the actual core.

  11. main issue with low price devices are bands

    only few 4g bands are there which makes down config

    1. Forget CDMA. It’s getting closed soon.
      Many are getting the message including me.
      Is there any way to oppose this?!

      1. You also using CDMA? I like call charges, data pack and voice clearity og CDMA network. Is thei phone support CDMA or not? CDMA+GSM or GSM+GSM I am confused on specification.
