Iball MSLR cobalt 4 is the latest smartphone from Iball company which comes with the M-SLR camera focus lens which is the first of its kind, here we are gonna know how it is really gonna work.
The design looks fabulous with the great metallic finish. The rose metal finish gives the device a wonderful look. Even the home button is a metal one with perfect roundness. It does come with D-SLR camera lens. I love the design. It looks amazing.
The edges are slightly curved. The body is made of plastic built hard. The power and volume keys come to the side of the device. To the right side there is the power button and to the left side, there are volume controls. The branding comes only on the back side. The USB cum power slot comes at the bottom. The overall design is very good.
Iball MSLR cobalt 4 is equipped with 5”display made up of very good panels, it is a multi-touch capacitive touchscreen with a pixel density of 220ppi. It has a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. The display clarity is pretty average and there is nothing special about it. The viewing angles are average.
Iball MSLR cobalt 4 is powered by a very good powerful quad-core processor ticking at 1.4 GHz which is perfect for a mid-range smartphone. It is running on the OS Android v4.4 Kitkat version. It has an internal memory of 8GB and 1GB RAM.
The expandable memory provided up to 32GB. Packed with a primary camera of 8MP with LED flash along with 3.2 front cameras. Stereo speakers are given.
Wi-Fi, Hotspot, Bluetooth, GPS options are available. It has 2000mAh li-on non-removable battery which provides long-lasting backup. It has dual sim support. The sim slots support GSM. Proximity, ambient light, and accelerometer sensors are available.
The device comes with an M-SLR lens which is available outside. We have to evaluate the performance of the lens and is it really useful? Or it is just a marketing trick. The performance of the camera is not as good as we expected which is a major downfall. All the concentration of the company comes to the look and build quality but not really on the camera.
The video playback quality is very good. The UI is very good and user-friendly, it got a drop down toggle for quick settings. The navigation buttons are very responsive. Comparing to the overall performance the device is less than expected. This phone is quite disappointing while compared to others. Even the display is also average.
Iball MSLR cobalt 4 is a very average device and it is not at all preferable to buy. The design looks very premium but the performance is not up to the grade. It is available at the cost of RS 8200/- If you want to buy this phone just for the name M-SLR then goes for it. It is just a marketing technique. However, if you want the lens you can buy it separately around 300 to 500RS.
