Swipe MTV Volt Fablet – For youngsters who want to watch MTV while travelling
Most smartphone manufacturers are now launching devices with screen sizes of five inches or bigger as they are getting increasingly popular amongst the users. Swipe Telecom, isn’t a well-known company and many of you might think that this is an Indian firm. But it is not, Swipe Telecom is from California, USA, and they recently launched a huge six inches phablet called Swipe MTV Volt Fablet.
I was a bit surprised to see six inches screen as most manufacturers are launching five inches phablets. We are giving a short preview of this device. Complete review will be covered later.
Swipe MTV Volt Fablet is a dual SIM phone and it has Android 4.1 OS inside. There is dual core 1GHz processor having Cortex ARM architecture inside and this is accompanied by 4GB internal memory and 512MB RAM. There is also a microSD card slot for expanding memory up to 32GB.
There is a six inches screen having an 854×480 pixels resolution and there is also eight megapixels rear facing camera with 1.3 megapixels front facing camera for making video calls. Swipe MTV Volt Fablet has 3,200mAh battery inside and it has rated talk time of eight to ten hours. There is also a cool leather cover inside the box.
We got to see white coloured device and people having smaller palms might not be able to hold it comfortably but average sized palms won’t have any problem.
This device has rounded smooth curves with matte finishing which makes this device non slippery and it doesn’t make the device look cheap either.
Power and volume rocker button are placed close to each other at right side. Top side has 3.5mm headphones jack and charging port is located at the bottom.
Swipe MTV Volt Fablet comes with six inches screen and it has resolution of 854×480 pixels. Screen quality is good and even graphics look good. I played some games like Temple Run and they ran fine with good touch response.
Swipe MTV Volt Fablet has 3 capacitive touch sensitive buttons at the bottom for return, home, and settings. They are responsive. There isn’t any custom UI on this phone like Samsung’s TouchWiz interface. On big thing in menu is TV player that is in built and for viewing MTV while travelling. You can also put in more channels according to your preferences.
Swipe MTV Volt Fablet comes with eight megapixels rear facing camera and it has LED flash as well. There is 1.3 mega pixel front facing camera to make video calls. We can’t tell you about the quality as we didn’t have this device for a long time and hence couldn’t test the quality.
There isn’t anything spectacular about this device and it is pretty much the same as other phablets out there. The content partnership along with MTV might lure younger audiences. Stay tuned to this blog for a full review.
