Smartphones get smarter!


At just 8K, the Centric G1 is a steal with its textured curved shape and an awesome camera.

Continuing in the same vein of busting a price point wide open by introducing features, specs and looks is the Centric G1. Yes, you may not have heard of this brand. I hadn’t either. Which is why it was a very pleasant shock to see it and review it. Once again, at around 8K this phone is a total powerhouse – 5.5-inch HD display, 8.95-mm thin, Quad core processor, 3GB of RAM, a 2900 mAh battery. But the main stand out feature for this 8K phone is its sandstone black finish and the camera. Once again, rivalling phones three to four times its price, the G1 makes sure that having a small budget doesn’t mean you have to buy an ugly phone. It looks unique with a textured curved shape, and there is nothing like that even at 20K. Surprisingly, the camera performed exceptionally well too. The speed of the auto focus was remarkable and the colours even in low light were surprisingly good. Cameraphones under 10K almost always suck in terms of photography results, but this one is a game changer. Perhaps they made a mistake and put in a sensor and sense system that was for a much more expensive phone.
