Jyoti Group launched two models of Obi Worldphones in Nepal at 1st phase. First one is Obi SF1 and next is Obi SJ1.5. This phone is another budget range phone with brilliant features. Design of the phone is just as classy as of SF1. The official price of Obi Worldphone SJ1.5 in Nepal is Rs 14799. This phone is addition in series to compete in biggest budget category of market.
SJ1.5 can beat a lot of phones in market in terms of hardware, design and performance. Obi phones have the capability to take a good market share if they come with more products. They covered the market in budget range but they still have to cover starting range and high range. It is the cheapest handset of the company in the market.
Obi SJ1.5 is powered by great hardware at low cost. Lets take a look at them in the table below.
|Processor||1.3 GHz Quad Core|
|On-board Storage||16 GB|
|External SD card support||Max 32 GB|
|Camera||8 MP Main / 5 MP Secondary|
|Display||5” 720p HD IPS|
The smartphone is powered by a Mediatek chipset 1.3 GHz Quad core processor and 1 GB RAM. It comes with 16 GB internal storage and micro SD support up to 32 GB. It would have been nice to see Snapdragon and 64 GB memory card support. We get a 5 inch 720p HD display with pixel density of 294 ppi. At front there is 5 Megapixel camera for video chat, selfies, 3G conference. These is a 8 MP camera for taking 1080p videos and crispy photos. Whole device is powered by a 3000 mAh battery.
The back cover is removable, which protects the two SIM card slot and SD card slot as well. Amazingly this phone also has a Gyroscope, so Google cardboard and VR can be enjoyed. This phone supports 3G but doesn’t support 4G network. It is running Android 5.1 Lollipop with its own UI. Unlike SF1 there is no hybrid SIM slot. It supports two SIM cards and a memory card at same time.
Obi Worldphone SJ1.5 offers a fascinating combination of hardware power and design. The new curved bottom with vibrant color makes it recognizable and attractive. The 720p screen is also beautiful to look at and produces crispy, bright images. Gaming, multitasking is also satisfactory as it should be.
The battery life is fantastic and better than SF1. We loved to use the phone in default Android UI or new launchers instead of Obi’s own UI. The UI can be changed from settings. Obi SJ1.5 is a nice phone that you can buy in budget range for all rounder in every section.
