Smartron t.phone P design
As far as we have noticed Smartron is the best class design phone as it doesn’t comprise with its look. As you would have seen the t.phone had a bright orange rear panel, where the srt.phone has a Sachin Tendulkar’s photo and autograph with optional back panels. And the new t.phone p is somehow the exact match to the ZTE Blade A6 in hardware, except its selfie camera touts a 5-megapixel camera while ZTE phone has 8 Megapixel selfie camera. Without being surprised until we knew ZTE is the manufacturing partner for the t.phone P, specifically for the hardware but keeping software separate.
It has plastic all over that wraps around the t.phone p’s bottom and top and has a metal rear panel just to render some elegance to the design and support to fingers while holding it. On the left side, you’ll see a SIM tray and the power and volume buttons on the right. Smartron has picked up the textured metallic on and off Power button while volume keys are made of plastic, due to this change, users can easily navigate through the buttons.

It measures around 8.9mm thick in size and weighs 160g including its 5000mAh battery.

Smartron t.phone P cameras, performance, and battery life
The t.phone P is equipped with decent Core parts, the result will be visible in a single day as the performance is just optimum compared to most of the relevant priced smartphones which are using some other outdated or underpowered processors instead of Qualcomm Snapdragon. So far the experience of using Smartron t. Phone p has been a lag-free and no signs of delay in the UI. To some extent, the smartphone throws a lag before unlocking it and a little bit slow in fingerprint scanner.
We have compiled the benchmarks to see if it is taking on its competition. The t.phone P scores a total of 44,508 points in AnTuTu while in the Single-core and multi-core test in Geekbench 4, it scored 668 and 2,655 points sequeintly. And the phone has managed to show a 28fpg in GFXBench. Shortly the Cameras DxOmark result will be rolled out.
Battery life of this phone is just impressive we didn’t find any sudden drain in the battery while playing Shadow Fight 3. The Gaming performance is decent as well, and we didn’t notice any intense heat after a long gaming session. Despite of its large battery size the phone doesn’t support a quick charging.
In the HD video loop test, the t.phone P managed to show a remarkable time of 20 hr and 47 mins, which is by now the best time recorded in the sub-range 10000 Rs segments. Not only that the phone also supports reverse charging which means that you can use the t.phone P to charge other devices just like you use power bank and this phone will be your power bank too. Smartron comes bundled with a 10.5W charger in the box, and it requires at least 3 hrs to top it up.
Unlike battery performance, the camera is just an ordinary and has only few modes you can choose from. In addition to the basic photo and Video, there are Time-lapse, Beauty, Panorama, manuals and Multi-Exposure modes.
Manual mode lets you play with ISO, exposure, auto-focus, and white balance. Multi-Exposure mode lets you snap artistic photos by overlapping frame, And you see normal photo filters too which are used in normal photo mode.
As far as the camera quality is concerned the Smartron t. Phone P couldn’t impress us at some point, the images coming out were bit burn out when set to overexpose mode. Even Macros are overexposed. And the photos captured at room light or indoors showed a better quality compared to daylight. We noticed that when we kept the camera steady while taking a picture, the result came out to be fairly good, As the camera requires more time to focus on an object by reducing the shutter speed.

At the same time, the noise is almost regulated. Night shots show fewer details and selfies are overall nice and clean, and the beautify mode is seemly good in smoothening output.
Selfie shooter has a wide selfie mode to help you stitch three shots together to provide a wider frame. Regarding video quality, the rear camera remits 1080p, and front camera maxes out at 720. Smartron t. phone p’s cameras compared to related priced phones are much better, and this might be the key point of its marketing plan.
As we have allocated its strength and vulnerability, the Smartron t. Phone P boasts good hardware for such a low price considering specs. Design and build quality is well finished, battery life is superior due to its big battery. However, camera wise, the phone is not that great but an excellent pick for this price. You’re getting what you’re paying. If you bother about the long battery life and good hardware then The buying a Smartron t. Phone P is the best decision you can ever make.
