What’s Not so Cool?
The srt.phone offers a good design and is a phone that is designed and engineered in India. What we thought that it misses on is a metal body. The srt.phone offers a plastic body shell and that might be a deterrent for users to pick another phone.
Also the 5-megapixel front camera is not that great. It just offers a decent selfie experience. This is a user-centric phone and not a selfie-centric one, that might be just one of the reason that Smartron ignores the importance of a front camera on this one.
The srt.phone is a performance oriented smartphone for people who are looking to buy a near stock android experience smartphone. It has Performance by its side and a good user experience. Camera is not one of the strongest point of this smartphone but it does the job.
Where is phone steals our heart is that it is a consistent performer for its owner, just how Sachin Tendulkar was for Cricket.
For Sachin Tendulkar fans this phone is a must have. Consumers looking for performance should have this device on their consideration list. For those looking for a selfie experience you can skip this phone.
