Fly Mobile has revamped its Android lineup with three phones and a tablet. The top of the line Fly F45s is priced at Rs 11,500 and comes with a 4.5 inch qHD (960 Ã— 540 pixel) display and dual core 1.2 GHz processor.
This Android 4.1 Jelly Bean phone comes with a 12 megapixel rear camera with features like auto focus and LED flash, and a 3 megapixel unit in the front. It also has 1 GB RAM, 4 GB internal memory, expandable memory up to 32 GB, connectivity features including 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS, and a 2050 mAh battery. However, there are many phones from Intex, iBall, Xolo and Karbonn with similar specifications and better pricing.
In fact Karbonn offers a quad core phone with all the specs (except camera) matching this Fly Mobile handset, which takes the limelight away from this almost forgotten brand.
Fly has also launched a 5 inch phone, called Fly F51. It comes with a 5 inch display with WVGA resolution of 480 x 800 pixel and it has a 5 megapixel rear camera and 2 megapixel front camera. The Android 4.0 ICS based phone comes with a 1 GHz dual core processor and has 4 GB internal memory and an 1800 mAh battery.
Fly F40 is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread based 2G only phone with a 4 inch display and 1 GHz dual core processor. It has a 3.2 megapixel camera at the back and a VGA camera up front. There is a 1400 mAh battery powering the device. The phone is priced at Rs 4,500, which is not bad. The company has launched an 8 inch tablet based on Android 4.1 and it is priced at Rs 13,499. The tablet sports a single SIM slot with 3G support. It has an 8 inch display with 1024 x 768 pixel resolution, which is good.
The tablet has a 3.2 megapixel camera at the back and a 2 megapixel front camera. It is well endowed with features like proximity sensor, gravity sensor, accelerometer, video player, video recorder, FM, GPS, GPRS, Edge, 3G and Bluetooth. In fact, it is one of the rare tablets with FM radio. Given the features the price seems to be nice for this tablet too, although much will depend on the quality of the product.
Overall only the tablet from Fly manages to impress us with its specifications and price, and while the rest of the phones are fine in the specifications department, in terms of pricing we think they are slightly on the higher side. May be price correction in the retail market will address that for Fly Mobile.
