Videocon A55 HD is a dual sim 5 inch phablet powered by quad core processor. In recent times we have seen plenty of quad core phones using the MediaTek MT6589 chip like Micromax A116 Canvas HD, Xolo Q1000, Zen Ultrafone 701 HD etc. Now we have Videocon A55 HD that’s using quad core 1.2 GHz Cortex A5 Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chip. It’s a HD phablet, display supports 720p resolution. Features are quite similar to the other models mentioned above.
Now we have few MTK6589T Turbo powered smartphones coming in our way. The original MT6589 is becoming less popular. Snapdragon 200 is not preferred over MTK neither by the manufacturers nor by buyers. The gaming compatibility of the MediaTek Turbo version is way better because of the 1.5 GHz quad core Cortex A7 CPU and 357 MHz clocked PowerVR SGX544MP GPU. That’s the only reason you can stay away from the machine. Otherwise, overall specs are pretty decent. Price looks a bit in the higher side. Less than Rs 12,000 is now what buyers prefer to pay for a handset with these specs.
Videocon A55 HD
In recent benchmark tests done by Fonearena shows that Videocon A55HD scores more than Canvas HD and other rivals in Quadrant & AnTuTu benchmark tests. It scores 4026 in Quadrant and 13,077 in AnTuTu.
There is a 8 MP back camera and 3.2 MP front camera in this phone. Other specs are also quite similar to Zen Ultrafone 701 HD. Therefore, it’s better to go for Ultrafone 701 HD and save money from the deal.
In connectivity front Videocon A55HD has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, micro USB port. These features are common in all handsets. It would have been better if there were some new connectivity options.
Li-Ion 2100 mAh battery is the source of energy to this phone. It’s just 100 mAh bigger than what Canvas HD has. It will not make a world of difference. You can assume 4-5 hrs of talk time is what Videocon A55HD can offer.
