Swipe Mobile launched this low cost VoLTE smartphone called the Konnect Power. Here is the Swipe Konnect Power review, this will help you know if the handset is worth the price. This handset is powered by Spreadtrum quad core processor.
The specs are good but there is one more handset in the market the iVooMi Me5 that also comes with similar specs / same hardware and is cheaper. Plus the Swipe konnect Power is running Marshmallow 6.0 where as the Me5 is running Nougat.
Since this handset is powered by Spreadtrum chipset, performance is okay for general usage but not for gaming use. Heat up is also under control. The handset supports VoLTE and battery life is decent enough.

Swipe Konnect Power Gaming Review
The chipset is not powerful, though you can play high end games in low quality mode. I tried Asphalt 8 game, high mode it lags, medium mode playable and low mode it does much better.

The Swipe Konnect Power hardware is similar to iVooMi Me5. In fact iVooMi Me5 is better cause it comes with extra sensors that are missing on Konnect Power and Me5 is running Nougat, plus Me5 is cheaper.
