Down the line in a range of entry-level level devices is the Kim Fly Inspired i3 smartphone. This is an affordable Android smartphone that comes with low-end features (as expected from an entry-level device).
However, the 4G connectivity option of this smartphone makes it to stand apart from similarly priced devices with same features. So, I bid you to join me as we go through the specifications of this affordable device.
Design and display
The Inspired i3 is a nicely designed phone in a candy bar form factor with rounded corners. The package is quite slim and pretty to behold. The phone is somewhat light on the hands and easy to carry.
The Inspired i3 comes in a single SIM package with a microSD slot for storage expansion. As of the time of writing this article, there is only one color variant for this device: blue. There’s the usual connectivity options including Bluetooth, WiFi, 3G, and surprisingly there is also 4G.
The Kim Fly Inspired i3 uses a 5.0 inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) IPS display with a pixel density of 294PPI. The display supports multi-touch functionality of up to 5 fingers at a time. For screen protection, the manufacturer added a Gorilla glass to the screen.
Processor and OS
There’s no word on the type of processor used on the Inspired i3, but given the pricing of the device I’d assume it was a MediaTek processor, probably the MTK6580 with a clock speed of 1.3GHz.
Note: I’m only speculating the type of processor, so you may not take my word for it.
Since it’s an Android smartphone, the Inspired i3 definitely runs on Android. This entry-level device comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow pre-installed. This gives the user access to a wide array of amazing applications and games in the Android ecosystem.
Memory and Storage
The Kim Fly inspired i3 comes with 4gigs of internal storage and 1GB of RAM. This RAM size should be sufficient for running most Android apps and games without noticeable lagging. The meager 4GB ROM can be expanded to 32GB via a microSD card.
You have two cameras on this device, which is now normal. At the back is a 5MP camera with auto focus and flash; the quality of the images captured using this camera are definitely not going to be top-notch but they should do. Surprisingly, this back camera supports HD video recording. There’s also the presence of a 3.2MP selfie camera at the front.
There’s a 3000mAh battery to keep the inspired i3 running. This battery capacity should be enough for a day on light to average usage, but less on heavy use.
