Entry-level smartphone segment - a space in the smartphone market that prides itself on giving to the users what they always seek and it is called value for money. But how many smartphone makers take that seriously? We mean that every smartphone maker tries to offer the maximum value for money with their offerings, but do they provide all the necessary features as well? If you consider the offerings Intex has made, you would realise that many of them just do not cut it for many users. Then there are makers like Datawind who promise to offer all necessary features.
The Datawind Pocket Surfer 3G4 comes with a 1GHz processor and that is accompanied by 256MB RAM (not much powerful, but will get all the tasks you throw at it done). The Pocket Surfer 3G4 runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat and it comes with the ability to handle two SIM cards at the same time. The Datawind Pocket Surfer 3G4 comes with a 4-inch screen that throws out display resolution of 960x480 pixels. There is 512MB internal storage capacity on the Pocket Surfer 3G4 and it can be increased further up to 32GB with the use of a microSD card. The Datawind Pocket Surfer 3G4 comes with a 5-megapixel rear camera and it is accompanied by a 0.3-megapixel snapper on the front. The Pocket Surfer 3G4 draws its power from a 1200mAh power cell and while no performance ratings are available, we think it should last for close to 5 hours of usage on a single full charge.
The Datawind Pocket Surfer 3G4 begs you to answer the question as to what if you do not just have to settle for less. After quite some offerings did Intex start offering 3G capabilities in its entry-level smartphone segment offerings. Adcom did that without doling out a host of devices, but it suffers from poor visibility. Datawind does not seem to be facing any such issues and that is what should work in its favour. Only time will tell how good it fares.
