Koobee Pepsi P1S Review
PepsiCo is the company that manufactures the carbonated soft drink Pepsi. The company was founded in 1893 and has established itself as one of the world’s largest food and beverages brands.
The company stepped into the smartphone business in 2015. It lent its branding to a smartphone manufactured by Chinese firm Shenzhen Scooby Communication Equipment and said it plans to market accessories too.
Koobee is a company which started manufacturing Pepsi Smartphones after a lot of crowdfunding. You can see the Koobee logo on the box but you wont see the Koobee logo anywhere on the phone.Lets get started with the review.
The handsets run dido OS 6.1 version based on Android 5.1 Lollipop(32-bit). The software is so smooth but a little bit buggy. All the icons are made keeping Pepsi in mind.All the icons in the phone comprises of red and blue colors on them.
Also in settings when you click on Battery icon it doesn’t do anything.This is a bug which should be fixed by the Koobee company. Also i feel there is some bloatware installed in this phone which shows some notifications to install apps from store.
If the battery reaches 15%, the battery saver keeps on notifying you till you turn it on.This became a big headache for the users to use the phone. Right now the build is P1S V2.03 and i hope there will be a new update soon.
The launcher used in this phone is Uni-Launcher which cant be removed from default home launcher and we have to stick to it.
The Koobee Pepsi P1S comes with pre-installed software such as Calculator, Calendar, Camera, Google Chrome, Contacts, Gallery, iTap File Manager, Gmail, Google Maps, Google Play Store, Yahoo Weather, Google Play Music, Flashlight, FM Radio and Sound Recorder. As it runs on Android 5.1 you can install new apps from Google Play store.
The hardware in this phone is really amazing.It comes with sensors such as Accelerometer, Proximity Sensor, Light Sensor, Gyroscope and Fingerprint Sensor. Also this phone comes with a 1.7GHz Octa-Core processor and a 2GB LPDDR3 RAM which gives superior performance.
The phone supports LTE and it is unlocked to use in various countries. So you dont have to worry about the network you are using as it can support 2G and 3G as well.
The smartphones feature hybrid dual-SIM card slots, with the second slot usable for either a microSD card or a SIM card.The fingerprint sensor is quite responsive and can record upto 3 fingerprints.
You can perform various actions with the fingerprint sensor such as Return Back, Slide Launcher, Control Music Player, Control Video Player, Take Photo/Video, Answer Call, Display Notification Panel & Lock Apps.
The hardware buttons are not backlit which is a drawback of this phone. There are 3 buttons on the right side of this phone which are Volume Up, Volume Down and Power Button.
This phone has two speakers and a USB at the bottom just like iPhone. Also the 13MP camera takes super good photos. The rear camera adopts 1300W Samsung 1/3.06 inch CMOS Sensor, F2.0 aperture and 5P optical lens.The battery is of 3000 mAh which gives a decent battery life.
The performance of Koobee Pepsi P1S is superior. When tested with the Antutu Benchmark it gave a score of 37090 which is better when compared to Redmi Note 4G.
For this price range this score is very great. Game performance on this phone is mid-level. The CPU score is 13595 by Antutu Benchmark.The phone has Mali-450MP as renderer which is best at this price range.
This phone is not yet released officially in India but you can buy this phone at Banggood for 106USD (7150 rupees approx.). Banggood has worldwide shipping which can ship the phone to any place. Also i didn’t get any custom duty charges while shipping it to India. So you are good to buy the Koobee Pepsi P1S.
