iBall Andi 3.5 Classique entry-level Android smartphone launched at Rs 3,499

iBall-Andi-Classique

iBall has added another phone to its “Andi” lineup of phones, called iBall Andi 3.5 Classique. Available at Rs 3,499, this dual-SIM 2G smartphone runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. 

It features a 3.5-inch HVGA (320×480 pixels) display, a 1.3GHz dual core processor and 256MB of RAM, a 2-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a front camera. Internal memory is 512MB but can be expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card. It comes with b/g/n Wi-Fi compatibility and a 1,200mAh battery.

In comparison to the closely matched Micromax Bolt A58 and Karbonn Smart A52, the Andi 3.5 Classique gets a marginally faster processor (1.3GHz dual-core unit vs Bolt A58 and Smart A52′s 1GHz dual core), but the Bolt A58′s 512MB of RAM is twice as that of the Andi 3.5 Classique and Smart A52′s 256MB. The Karbonn takes a leap by offering a 1,400mAh battery and a 3-megapixel camera, both features being better than the other two phones’. Apart from that, all three are neck to neck, with the Micromax retailing for a slightly higher Rs 3,999 and Karbonn for close to Rs 3,600.
