The have brought two of their devices in this first phase and more will be coming soon. Our gadget analyst got Obi SF1 review unit and did all the benchmark, stress, battery tests to check the devices. The price of Obi Worldphone SF1 in Nepal for 16 GB model is Rs 21499 and 32 GB model is Rs 26199
There are two models of SF1, one has 16 GB internal memory and 2 GB RAM while the another one has 3 GB RAM and 32 internal memory. We used this device about one week with will medium to hard level usage. These mobile phones have stunning unique and sturdy design. SF1 has all the hardware and software power that you need. They are designed for the youth and are also priced similarly.
Below the strong Gorilla Glass 4 and beautiful 5 inch 1080p full HD IPS display, a powerful 1.5 GHz octacore processor is housed. According to choice there is 2 GB RAM with 16 Gig internal storage and 3 GB RAM with double 32 Gigs of on-board storage. It supports external SD card up to 64 GB with 4G LTE network as well. In the SIM part, it’s tray can handle Nano SIM as well as Micro SIM.
The Camera is 13 MP primary SONY sensor and 5 MP secondary or front shooter with LED flash. SF1 comes with Android 5.0.1 and runs company’s own skin. The stock UI can be turned on inside settings. This device is powered by 3000 mAh non removable battery which supports quick charge 1.0.
Lets start with the cherry of the cake. The screen has 443 ppi pixel density which makes it really crispy, detailed, bright also fun to use. The 3000 mAh battery is absolutely fantastic and it is the best battery we have seen in any budget smartphone. We left the phone to download some movies for whole night and the battery just reduced by 20%. There is a special battery saving mode so ultimately the battery life is fantastic.
No phone in the market right now gives octa-core processor, FHD display and Gorilla Glass at this price. The 16 GB internal memory is enough for regular usage for most people except for us. We did a lot of gaming with this device and the performance was satisfactory. The games ran at medium settings with some heating. Obi SF1 comes with Gyro-sensor which means it can support VR headset and Google Cardboard.
For camera, even the front camera has LED flash. The shutter is average and captures photos with good amount of details and sharpness. Chroma flash and Macro shots are the best part of this phone. We request the company to roll out a new update to remove the UI lag. They should also launch the kernel so that developers can root and create custom ROM.
Obi Worldphone SF1 is a complete package of high end hardware tagged at affordable and reasonable price.
