The Swipe Elite Sense is a new budget smartphone launched by the Indian brand at an attractive price of Rs 7,499. It houses a Snapdragon 425 processor and features decent specifications. Let’s check out the performance of the smartphone and see what it offers.
Design and Display
The Swipe Elite Sense has a glossy metallic finish at the back, but the body is made up of plastic. The design is not very attractive, but the build quality seems sturdy. The smartphone has a right body size and weight, making it feel comfortable to use single-handedly.
The rear panel has Elite logo at the center along with a camera and flash at the top in a different design segment. The fingerprint sensor is just above the logo. The power and volume rocker keys are on the left side of the edge while the SIM card tray is available on the right edge.
The Swipe Elite Sense sports a 5-inch IPS display with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution. The screen quality is okay but not as great as seen on the other budget smartphone like Redmi or Lenovo.
Hardware and Software
The Swipe Elite Sense is powered by 64-bit quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC clocked at 1.4GHz coupled with Adreno 308 GPU and 3GB of RAM. There is 32GB of onboard storage and a micro SD support. Out of which users will get around 1.9GB free RAM and 23GB free ROM.
The smartphone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. It gives users a stock Android feel. The UI seems pretty clear and has very less bloatware in it.
Talking about the performance, the device seems pretty good in terms of the touch response and multitasking. I was able to use several apps simultaneously with no lag.
The gaming performance of the smartphone is good, and one can play normal games with ease. I even played high-end game like Asphalt 8 and there were minimal lags in it.
The benchmark performance of the smartphone is good and it scores 36778 in AnTuTu and 59.7 in NenaMark 2.4. It scores 663 (Single Core) and 1752 (Multi Core) in Geek bench.
The fingerprint sensor works fine and unlocks smoothly. The Audio and Video quality of the smartphone is also good. The 4G connectivity works well as I was using Jio SIM in it.
The Swipe Elite Sense is packed with 2,500mAh battery, which seems a bit low as per day-to-day usage. The battery lasted for seven hours with moderate usage, however for light usage, it will offer around 10 to 11 hours of battery backup.
The phone sports a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash. The camera works fine and delivers average quality. The captured images have a lot of details, but the colour vibrancy seems missing. The front camera is of 8-megapixel and captures good selfies. Overall the camera quality is average.
The Swipe Elite Sense is a good entry-level smartphone to choose, especially if you want one immediately as a lot of phones are selling via flash sale these days. The smartphone offers decent performance, build quality and connectivity. Other options that you can go for in this segment are Xiaomi Redmi 4A, Redmi 3s and Lenovo Vibe K6.
