Overall User Rating (3.7 Out of 5 based on 165 ratings)
Overall: Well, I purchased the phone Forme Discovery for Rs. 1745. I offered my dad to buy a Asus Zenphone for him but he wanted to purchase something much cheaper. I read good things about Forme before and and even I wanted to see "dekhte hain Rs. 1,745/- mein kya denge."
Well, my findings surprised me... let's see if it surprises you too:
DISPLAY: Well I didn't expect some very hifi display at this price. But the display is a good 3.5-inch display with adequately responsive touch. Great touch at this price in fact.
SPEED: The phone takes 10-20 seconds to start up and shut down, feature that can perhaps be ascribed to the low 256 MB RAM. Also the loud music that plays during starting the phone sounds really cheap. But I think that can be turned off. Apps open a bit slower but I think even that is faster than you would expect from a 256 MB phone.
BATTERY LIFE: Battery Life is not bad, I mean comparable to any other average smart phone. You should need to charge it once a day.
WiFi: Working good, downloads from Google Play Store are faster on Forme Discovery than they are on my Galaxy Tab or Lumia 630. I don't know how, but I am really able to feel the difference.
Internal Storage: Just 100 MB for user, but you can install the apps directly to the Micro SD card. However, that is limited because each app of 30-60 MB will have a 1-5 MB footprint in the internal memory. So, I think you can comfortably install around 500-700 MB or so games on the external storage. 10-12 games, I think. No complaints. The external storage can be added upto 32 GB.
GAMES: Well, this is the section that many people want to read. Yes, this mobile can run some games too.
Temple Run - YES, but with little lag
Subway Surfer: NO WAY
Bubble Games - YES, very smoothly
Krafteers - YES, to my surprise it runs smoothly. It's a great survival game, a light game in the hardcore genre.
Chess - YES
Angry Bird - Haven't tried. But I think IT WILL RUN WELL.
Candy Crush - YES
YouTube - YES
To conclude, I really feel the phone is underrated. It is the best smartphone at below-200 price.
