CENTRiC, an Indian smartphone brand, has emerged as a benchmark when it comes to smartphone available at a pocket-friendly price. The firm knows exactly what the audience is looking for, and based on that information they manufacture phones that suit the smartphone needs of the masses, such as the CENTRiC G1.
Another entry to the company’s high-spec affordable smartphone range is the CENTRiC A1. The flagship smartphone houses some powerful specs and is an attractive buy if you consider its price. Here, we List down 5 compelling reasons for why the handset is worth buying.
It is the display that takes the center stage on Centric A1. The phone flaunts a gorgeous 5.5-inch Full HD (1920X1080 pixel) display, which is sharp, crisp and bright enough to comfortably view in any lighting condition. The colors are accurate, well saturated and pleasing to eyes. We had a pleasant experience while consuming media content, surfing the internet or doing pretty much anything on the handset.
The fact that Centric A1 is extremely slim and ergonomic also contributes to that effect. Besides, its metal unibody casing feels extremely premium in hands.
The CENTRiC A1 can push some really powerful and clean audio from its speakers appropriately positioned on the bottom edge. The placement can’t get wrong, as the sound mingles well with your multimedia content playing on the screen. The speakers are particularly loud, and the quality is just top-notch.
The handset also supports DTS audio, which makes a noticeable difference when you use good quality headphones like the one that CENTRiC packs in the retail box.
Another thing that really impressed us about CENTRiC A1 was its camera performance. The front and back cameras have perfectly tuned hardware and software that enable them to click awesome images without putting in much effort. The optics include 13MP primary camera with HDR Mode, Portrait mode, and dual-LED flash, and an 8MP secondary camera with selfie shooter.
The CENTRiC A1 can capture moments with meticulous details, wide dynamic range and high contrast. The front camera is no slouch either. All you selfie enthusiasts won’t be able to resist drawing it out every now and then.
The flagship device, CENTRiC A1, houses a 3000mAh battery that can easily last one full day on a single charge. We used the phone with two SIM cards, had multiple accounts synced, and could still make it to the bedtime with about 30 percent remaining in the tank. Moreover, CENTRiC bundles a fast charger that will charge the phone real quick(0-40% in just 20 minutes).
Under its sturdy casing, the CENTRiC A1 is powered by 1.4 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 430 processor integrated with Adreno 505. The chipset is backed by 3GB RAM and 32GB onboard storage, that you can further stretch with the help of microSD card.
In our testing, the performance was immaculate and the phone could handle everything we threw at it, including high-end games like Asphalt 8 and Mortal Combat 5 with perfect ease. The thermal efficiency of the handset further ensures that it remains cool even under stress.
These are the five reasons for why CENTRiC A1 is the perfect phone to buy at Rs. 11,000. It offers a premium experience for a lesser price when compared to phones like Mi A1 and Moto G5s Plus.
When pitched against nearly same price phones like Redmi Note 4 and Billion Capture+, it has the distinct advantage of a slim design and better camera performance.
At the end of the day, the proof of the pudding is in the eating, and the practical experience we had with the A1 places it as a sumptuous delicacy. Everything about the handset just adds up perfectly.
