During the event, we spoke to few bloggers and got to know their views about the device:
“I am a gamer. So, I really like the video quality and the design of the device because it makes the grip easy. Also, it weighs only 110mm which is the least in the market right now.” says Manav Saxena.
“Well, I am not much impressed with the device. In past, a lot of such smartphones have been launched at lower range but with same features. I do not think people would pay INR 6,000 more for Barometer.” says Saurav Subhdarshi.
“I really like the camera. It has good focal length with camera angle of 84 degree which enables the user to capture multiple faces together. However, the range is something which might not appeal to the users since a lot of mobile companies have introduced the same features in lower ranges.” says Rahul Gupta.
“What this device offers different is the ability to click picture during the video recording. However, there market strategies seems to be weak and they have not even announced how they are planning to introduce it over Amazon.in which can effect their sales.” says Mayank Sharma.
“This is the first time that I have heard a device giving the feature of using a Sim card slot as a memory card slot. Phones these days are not offering memory on phone so this is a good way.” says Abhishek Tiwari.
