Let's see the tech specs of Swipe Elite and see if it is worthy to buy.   

In the box

In the box you have a handset (ofcourse!), user manual, warranty information with a warranty card, USB charging adaptar with an output rating of 1000mA, stereo headphones(tangle-free) with mic and a button and earbuds.


Swipe Elite operates on Android 5.0 Lollipop. The company has promised Android 5.1 updates very soon. There is a customized UI from the manufacturers known as Freedom OS that gives you a handful of good features with frequent OTA updates as confirmed by he company.

According to Swipe, future of the OS is here with Freedom OS to take you to a new level of perfection.

Also, it has a quad core Mediatek MT 6582 processor ticking at 1.3 GHz and 2 GB RAM on board. You get 566.23 MB of free RAM after the first boot. The reason of high RAM consumption might be because of the Freedom OS. The phone is also giving you loads of storage in terms of internal (11.06 GB after the first boot in 16 GB) and external storage (up to 32 GB).

Display & Color

The phone has a 2mm narrow bezel, black carbon soft matte finish on the back panel, light weighted (131.3 grams) and easy grip.

The top edge has the microUSB port and a 3.5mm jack slot. The lower edge only has the mic. The back panel has the rear camera, LED Flash and the company logo. The right edge has the volume buttons and the power button. The phone is available in black color only.


The phone has a 13MP rear camera with LED Flash and 8MP front camera. Images clicked from th rear camera has a good color reproduction, clarity and is well-detailed. The front 8MP camera is handsome enough to click good selfies or shoot videos or make a video call.

My Take on Swipe Elite

The price is slightly confusing. Gadget Diary has said in the unboxing video that the phone has been launched at Rs. 5,999 in India. But the current Flipkart pricing of the phone is Rs. 6,499. Besides, I like the phone very much. It's OK for daily use, and looking the specs the battery is good to last a day. The camera looks pretty cool and the front camera is decent enough for selfies or video calls. The leftover RAM is certainly low, a couple of heavy RAM consuming apps like Facebook or Messenger will definitely cause the phone lag.

What do you think? Let us know about it.
