Few months back we exclusively got our hands on the CG EON eLite handset. We also made review video for that phone. This phone caught a lot of attention from Nepali customers because it comes from the most famous business group of the country. This time they have launched the whole EON series in the market with different specifications and pricing.
CG was already in the market with bar phones but it is the first time with smartphones. Now with this product at market they literally have touched everyone’s life by selling goods of all category. The company recently launched the new CG EON Edge, EON Lite Plus and many other handsets. We will state their specs, price and also drop our views on these devices. This initiation of a purely Nepali company is being appreciated everywhere. The only next thing that everyone hopes for is production from our own country.
CG EON Edge review: First lets clear it up, even though the phone is named Edge, it doesn’t have curved screen like Samsung S6 Edge or Note Edge. The phone consists of HD 5 inch IPS display with HD resolution of 720X1280. Under the screen we have a quad core processor rocking at 1.3 GHz and 2 GB of RAM. It all seems pretty standard with the 16 GB internal memory and support up to 32 GB memory card.
This phone has 13 MP primary camera, 5 MP front facing camera with pretty decent picture taking power. For the software it is running on Android 5.1 Lollipop with its own Burn UI giving a different look and feel. The phone is powered by a 2000 mAh battery which might seem small if you use your phone heavily because the HD panel and processor will consume a lot of it. The price of CG Eon Edge in Nepal is Rs 12,999.
CG EON Lite review: The EON LITE family consists of the Lite and the Lite Plus edition. They have slight difference and we will explain in the comparison and review of CG EON Lite Plus. Both EON Lite and Lite plus are 5” screened phoned with same IPS matrix display panel. They have same 1.2 GHz Quad core processor, same power battery of 2K mAh, and almost similar design. They both have same camera specs as both consist of 8MP back facing shooter and 3 MP front sensor.
The difference comes in internal specs of RAM, storage and price. The non plus version has only 512 MB of RAM 8GB on board storage while the plus version has 1GB RAM and 32 GB storage. The price of CG EON Lite is Rs 7999 and the price of CG EON Lite Plus is Rs 8999. We suggest you to add Rs 1000 and definitely go with the plus variant as it gives a lot of value for money.
CG EON Blaze: This phone has same specs as the EON edge in aspects of display, camera, operating system and processor but the RAM is 1GB in this system. The difference is the battery because it houses a 2200 mAh power pack which is slightly bigger and will give you better result. It has 16 GB internal space while it can support SD cards up to 64 GB which is quite different than others. The price of CG EON Blaze is Rs 10999.
CG EON Express: Express comes with WVGA 5” IPS display, 1.2 GHz Quad core processor, 1 GB RAM, 8GB internal space, Android 5.1, 5 MP back camera and 2 MP secondary shooter. It’s memory can be extended up to 32 GB using micro SD. There is also 2000 mAh battery to juice it up. The price of CG EON Express is Rs 8499 or ($84.99).
CG Eon Blaze Pro: Blaze pro fits a 5 inch LCD screen, 2400 mAh removable battery and GB RAM. It comes with 8 GB internal storage which can be enlarged up to 32 GB using mSD card. The price of Eon Blaze is Rs 9699 which makes it a great option because it holds 13 MP main camera an 5 MP front camera.
CG Eon Blaze 6.0: Just like the Eon Blaze Pro, this phone is running Android Marshmallow. This phone also comes with same 13 MP and 5 MP camera set for high quality image and video recording. It is a very big phone with 6” display but 2.5D glass over it. The RAM is 1 GB but the internal memory is 16 GB. Its MRP in the Nepali market is Rs 11111.
These are all mid range phones with head to head matching specs. So if you want to buy these phones, then select the one with best battery because they have almost similar internal specs. Camera quality is also the most important point to look at before buying.
