Swipe is a relatively new Indian smartphone maker and faces a tough, uphill task as it tries to fight off the competition already existing in the smartphone market. Its smartphone named Sense competes against the likes of Asus Zenfone 5 and Motorola Moto G in the mid-range smartphone segment. But with the two foreign entrants slugging it out in the mid-range segment, does Sense stand a chance to beat them both at their game?
Let's talk specs
The Swipe Sense features a 1.3GHz quad-core processor along with 1GB RAM. It has a 5.5-inch screen which puts out display resolution of 960x540 pixels. The swipe Sense features the ability to run two SIM cards at once and comes packed with Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Swipe has put 8GB internal memory capacity on the Sense smartphone and it can be increased further up to 32GB by using a microSD card. An 8-megapixel rear camera and a 3.2-megapixel front camera can be seen on the Swipe Sense smartphone. A 2250mAH capacity battery powers all the hardware on Swipe Sense but no performance ratings are available for the same.
How does it perform? Should you buy it?
The Sense is a way of telling the market that a lot of smartphone can be made for a lot less bucks and Swipe has done so by what it has created. While the Sense competes against the Asus Zenfone 5 and Motorola Moto G, it is evenly matched against the two and, in some areas, is better and worse too. However, the idea Swipe is trying to put forward is that this smartphone is a killer of sorts. It faces real competition from the likes of Asus Zenfone 6 but is priced a lot lower and hence, it is able to carve out a niche for itself. The build quality of the smartphone can be questioned a bit, but don't forget that even Swipe would have had to take some cost-saving measures. We would recommend it simply on the merit of being the only phablet that costs so less and yet is a performer.
