Pepsi’s Budget-Friendly SmartPhone

Drinks and food are not the only thing produced by the globally renowned company PepsiCo. The company recently entered the smartphone market after teaming up with Chinese manufacturer Shenzhen Scooby Communication Equipment. Following several leaks, the company finally officially released the Pepsi Phone P1.

Featuring a full HD 5.5 inch display with a 2.5D curved glass of 1080×1920 pixels, the Pepsi P1 has a sleek aluminium unibody design with a conveniently placed fingerprint scanner just above the Pepsi logo on the back. A 1.7 GHz Octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor powers the phone along with 2 GB of RAM, which means while multi-tasking is possible, an overload of heavy applications will surely slow down your phone. The smartphone has Android 5.1 Lollipop installed along with a dido OS 6.1 skin.

The rear camera is 13 megapixels and has a dedicated LED flash, while the front-camera of 5 megapixels is ideal for taking selfies. With a 4G LTE connection capability, the dual SIM slot can be used alternatively as either a microSD or a nanoSIM slot. The phone is available only in 16GB storage capacity but it can be expanded up to 64 GB via a microSD card.

A removable 3000mAh battery powers the phone and offers just over 10 hours of browsing time. The phone also includes sensors like an ambient light sensor, accelerometer, proximity sensor and a gyroscope.

The Pepsi Phone P1 is available in silver, blue and gold and can be purchased for a price of Rs. 5170. Also included in the package is a protective case, a charger and a USB cable. While it is certainly not the best or most reliable in the specifications category, the price point and the added unique ‘Pepsi’ factor makes this phone an interesting buy.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
