Datawind PocketSurfer 2G4


Datawind PocketSurfer 2G4 Description

  • Amazing value-for-money factor
  • No front-facing camera
  • Sacrifices 3G capabilities
  • Could use more powerful hardware

Some time ago, we talked about Datawind and what an offering it has brought out in the Indian smartphone market named Pocket Surfer 3G4. But did you know that a cheaper and a not-so-feature-laden alternative existed for that smartphone? If not, then this is going to be a pleasant surprise to all those among you who are still not ready to jump on the 3G-enabled mobile phone bandwagon. The only change in the name is the replacement of the 3 with 2. So, now the name of the device reads Pocket Surfer 2G4. Let us find out what the Pocket Surfer 2G4 has lost in its transition from Pocket Surfer 3G4.


The Datawind Pocket Surfer 2G4 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 2G4 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 2G4 comes with a 4-inch screen that throws out display resolution of 960x480 pixels. There is 512MB internal storage capacity on the Pocket Surfer 2G4 and it can be increased further up to 32GB with the use of a microSD card. The Datawind Pocket Surfer 2G4 comes with a 0.3-megapixel rear camera but sadly, there is no front-facing unit accompanying the main snapper. The Pocket Surfer 2G4 draws its power from a 1200mAh power cell and while no performance ratings are available, we think it should last for close to 7 hours of usage on a single full charge.


In its transition from Pocket Surfer 3G4, the Pocket Surfer 2G4 has not just lost 3G network capabilities, it has also lost a front-facing camera. But that comes with another surprise and it is in terms of price. With the elimination of a front camera and usage of a cheaper SoC, Datawind has been able to dole out a phone that may not appeal to the smartphone generation, but it will be a boon to those finding the transition from feature phone to a smartphone difficult.
