The Swipe Elite Sense is a quad core powered 4G VoLTE handset that was launched in India for Rs. 6,999. This handset sports a 5 inch screen with HD resolution and there is a 2500 mAh non-removable battery. It this worth it, read the review.

Inside the Swipe Elite Sense box you will get the handset, warranty card, user manual, data cable and travel charger 5V/1A. This handset is available on Flipkart for Rs. 7,499.

Design, Display and OS

The Elite Sense looks cool, the back has got a metallic finishing, with glossy layer – this looks really great. However though the handset has got a metallic finishing the body is made of plastic. Build and finishing is very good.

This is  a dual SIM handset using hybrid slot, you can use nano SIM + micro SIM or micro SD card + micro SIM. 4G with VoLTE is supported. There is LED notification and following sensor – accelerometer, proximity and light. Gyro and Magnetic sensor are missing.

Swipe Elite Sense sports a 5 inch IPS screen with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution. The overall screen quality is okay but not as great as seen on the Redmi handsets. If you compare Redmi phone screen with Elite Sense, you will find that the Redmi smartphone screen is better.

Android Marshmallow runs out of the box.

Memory and Storage

There is 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM and micro SD support. On a average you will get around 1.4GB free RAM and 22GB free ROM. OTG did not work, I was not able to access the contents on a micro SD card.

Inside the hood there is qualcomm snapdragon 425 64 bit quad core processor clocked at 1.4GHz coupled with Adreno 308 GPU. Performance was good, I did not find any issues as such, even gaming performance was good.

I played bullet force and asphalt 8. Both games were playable in high quality mode. However there was a very mild lag, but the game was playable – check video review.


The Swipe Elite Sense comes with 13MP rear camera with flash support and front camera is 8MP. Camera quality is average. The handset can shoot 1080p videos.

Sound was loud and clear. I used the Reliance Jio SIM, there was not issue using network. This handset also comes with finger print sensor on the back, that was also fast and accurate.


As mentioned the Elite Sense comes with 2500 mAh non-removable battery. On a full charge you will get 3 to 6 hours of non-stop moderate to heavy usage. With mixed usage you will get around 1 day of (moderate) usage.

Swipe Elite Sense Battery Performance (time / battery % drop / estimated battery temperature)

  • Running Benchmark app – 19 minutes / 5% / NA degree
  • Asphalt 8 + Bullet Force game play – 20 minutes / 9% / NA degree
  • FHD video playback with full brightness (WiFi /4G on) – 68 minutes / 20% / NA degrees.

There was some issue with battery temperature reading on all apps. The handset heated up just like other handsets, I guess the temperature when playing games for 20 minutes was around 40 degrees.

It took me 2 hours 34 minutes to charge the handset from 26% to 100% using wall charger.  For full charge an estimated 3 hours.


The Swipe Elite Sense though is a good handset, it really does not compete with Xiaomi Redmi 3s and the Redmi 3s Prime. In screen, camera, performance and battery department the 3s/3s Prime is much better option. Try getting the 3s/3s prime if you need a phone urgently you can consider the Elite Sense, otherwise makes no sense.

Rating 3.8 out of 5

Swipe Elite Sense is available on Flipkart for Rs. 6,999.

  1. this is a very bad mobile software became corrupted.due to this lots of unwanted ads I appeals from every people of india please don’t buy this phone

  2. hi sir
    I bought swipe elite sense ago 9 days.
    now my mobile finger print sensor is not working.

  3. I am regretting myself for buying this shitty piece of device.After use of 2 1/2 months… stops working. I immediately gave it to maintenance centre as it is Pune only(i m also from pune).
    They first said me that camera is fine…they tried me to accept that camera is Fine.

    At last they took mobile for repairing.Now…..52 days have been passed…and the company hasn’t even sent the spares for repairment. How bad is that.
    Don’t even consider to buy this bad product.

  4. I tried booking 4a several times but failed,now I don’t have any option left,I need a phone with good camera & screen. around 6.5 k

  5. Gogiji I bought it for 5699 yesterday on Flipkart Big10 SALE. Is it a good choice at 6k price range? Or I should cancel the order and should buy redmi 4A? Which one is better? Plz reply ASAP.

      1. #Otteri so I made a mistake? Thanks for the reply Gogiji. Now I think I’ll go for redmi 4 because fingerprint sensor is necessary for me. Thanks again.

        1. Well yes that be case Redmi 4 is best option, am working on the review and it will be up soon.

  6. Do Swipe phones feature Video Calling using phone dialer without third party applications viz. IMO etc.

  7. In Xiaomi we cannot install apps directly to SD card but i think Swipe have in-built option to change storage location for apps to SD card?????

  8. Well v cant say its not good or bad wtever…gogi makes evrythg clear ..nw its up to us whether v go fo it or another..thanks brother

  9. Swipe elite company belongs to which country i.e. Xiaomi belongs to China.
    It is the biggest drawbdrawback if it is a Chinese phone.

  10. Yes please or aap marwadi me bhi video banao i am more comfortable in marwadi. Or websitebhimarwadi me to ho or acha ho ☺☺?

    1. Achha to ye redmi 4A k barabar hai bhai? Fingerprint sensor aur 1gb extra RAM and 16gb extra ROM ko bhul gaye? 620mAh battery kam hai. I aggree.

  11. Dear Sir

    Why your reviews are coming in “Hindi only” nowadays. I would be much more comfortable if the reviews are coming in English too.


    1. And If you release this blog in tamil version also, then it will be very useful for like me who does not know English fluently.

      1. And Telgu version would also do a justice for people who can’t understand hindi, english and tamil.

      2. And Urdu language too for those who can’t understand hindi, english, tamil and telgu.

        1. Brothers I enjoyed your comments, but one thing you know, it is always interesting and easy to read tech articles in our own language, thats why i requested Gogi bro.

  12. Now I can stay with my old decision, Redmi 3s is already a champ in it’s price segment 🙂 thanks Gogi 🙂

  13. Dear Brother, please correct the title where it says “…does not matches” the proper one would be “does not match.”

    Sure enough it’s not your mistake rather being a typo…

    With love & respect

  14. Nice review as always gogi. There is a mistake in the sentence “It took me 2 minutes 34 hours to charge the handset from 26% to 100% using wall charger”. Correct it.

  15. Hi Gogi,
    Please correct the info given at battery section.instead 2hours 34 mins mentioned ad 2 minutes 34 hours
