2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Very good build quality - solid, premium, compact and feels good when held in hand
  • The compact design also works well for one-handed operations
  • Accurate fingerprint sensor at the back
  • Good 5.5-inch IPS 2.5D HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection - good brightness levels, good color reproduction, good viewing angles
  • Almost Stock Android UI keeps things nice and simple - the only added apps are from Amazon such as Amazon Shopping, Prime Video and Amazon Kindle, and a 10.or care app for customer service from the brand
  • The 10.or Care app helps you to diagnose various parts of the device including a battery, RAM, Wi-fi and more - with this app, you can also book for mobile repair, get the service estimates and you can also get in touch customer care either through call or email - the integrated service support is definitely a plus point
  • Good day-to-day performance powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 - the chipset is good for casual usage ranging from browsing the internet, listening to songs, chatting and watching videos (it is not meant though for intensive gaming or multi-tasking between heavy apps)
  • Decent rear camera - picture quality during daylight condition is good with right amount details and clarity - macro shots are especially good
  • Decent front camera for selfies - the inclusion of the front flash helps with photography at night
  • Good call quality
  • Decent loudspeaker, and decent audio quality through headset
  • Excellent battery life - with moderate use, it goes on for 2 days
  • Dedicated dual SIM tray with a separate microSD card slot on the left - unlike some of the competitors that offer Hybrid Dual Sim
  • On the whole, for day-to-day use (minus intensive gaming), this is a solid all-round device
  • Nice design language, and has a solid feel in the hand
  • For its price, the t.phone P also feels quite premium due to its metal body
  • The power button has a textured finish which is a thoughtful addition
  • Good display - it is sharp, color reproduction is saturated and punchy, and the display has good viewing angles and it gets quite bright so outdoor visibility is well above par
  • Near stock Android UI keeps things nice and simple
  • Decent day-to-day performance, powered by the reliable Snapdragon 435 Octa Core chipset
  • Unmatched battery life on a budget phone - the massive 5000 mAh battery, coupled with the power efficient Snapdragon 435 processor and the 720p display, means the t.phone P easily lasts over two days with normal day to day use
  • On the whole, the t.phone P is a solid alternative to the Xiaomi Redmi Y1 - if you’re looking for a device with a premium build quality and amazing battery life, the t.phone P easily trumps the Redmi Y1 with its metal finish and 5, 000mAh battery - in UI and performance too, the t.phone P comes out slightly ahead - though, in terms of camera quality, the Redmi Y1 is definitely ahead
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The bottom bezel is quite large and looks awkward without any physical or capacitive button on it
  • Due to the reflective display, the sunlight legibility is average
  • The rear camera is pretty good in daylight, but could have been better in low light
  • No fast charging support - so it takes over 2 and half hours to charge the phone
  • Average rear and front cameras - pictures have a significant amount of noise - much like most phones in this price bracket
  • The single bottom firing speaker is on the weak side
  • A little bit on the heavier side, thanks to the large battery
  • No fast charging
