by December 1, 2014

celkonwin400dFor quite a while now Nokia has been the front runner in the Windows handset market. Over the past couple of years, the Finnish smartphone maker has been launching some of the best Windows devices all packed with a bunch of awesome features. It wasn’t rare to find other handset manufacturers opting for Windows.

However, while Nokia did manage to grab the most delicious cookie, others found it a bit too tough to get the best out of Windows, possibly due to an expensive price tag.

Trying to shake off things a little bit, Celkon launches the Win 400, the cheapest Windows phone priced at just Rs. 4999. No doubt, the pricing seems too impressive. But, has it got it all. Let’s have a look.

Specifications

  • 4-inch capacitive display
  • Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1 OS
  • 2 GHz Quad-Core processor
  • 5 MP Primary Camera
  • 3 MP Secondary Camera
  • 4 GB of internal storage, extendable up to 32 GB
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 1500 mAh Li-Ion Battery

 

Can you believe it? All of that at just 5000 bucks. The black variant of the handset is currently available on Snapdeal. So, if you’ve already made up your mind to go for it, that’s where you can buy it from. But, before that, let’s talk a bit more about the Celkon Win 400.

Display

The device features a 4-inch display with a 480 x 800 pixels resolution. Not bad, right? Of course, in an age where the displays are going massive, a 4-inch might feel a bit too small. But, if a huge display is something you can do without, the Win 400 is meant just for you.

Operating System

In case you are on a mission to find a Windows handset that costs you well below 5K, you are sure to return home empty handed. At just Rs. 4999, the Celkon Win 400 is undoubtedly the cheapest handset powered by the latest Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1 OS.

Camera

A 5 MP camera should be good enough to help you click a bunch of decent pics. And yes, if you are a selfie lover, the win 400 makes you happy with a 1.3 MP front-facing camera. Of course, it won’t be wise to expect a celebrity-like selfie, but you can surly click one and set it as your WhatsApp display image, or may be a Facebook avatar.

Storage

4 GB of internal storage sounds fair enough. In case you plan to dump all your crucial files into your phone, the device gives you an option to increase the memory up to 32 Gigs. 512 MB RAM may not sound too pleasant, but if high-end gaming is not a part of you, it shouldn’t be a problem.

The handset packs in a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor and a 1500mAh battery offering up to 5 hours of talk-time and 200 hours of stand-by time. Overall, the device weighs just over 120 grams, which is quite impressive.

In terms of features, the Nokia Lumia 525 seems to be a potential competitor. While the Win 400 ships in with a secondary camera, the Lumia 525 doesn’t. However, the latter does have a better internal memory and a powerful RAM. But, you probably end up shedding over 9 K, which may get a bit heavy on your pocket.

With all that being said, the Celkon Win 400 is indeed the best deal out there. So, if you plan to make a switch from Android to Windows, you do have a good option at hand.
