Handy smartphone at a low price
The Hi-Tech S230 Amaze poses a 3.5-inch Transmissive capacitive multi touch display which has a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels and a pixel density of 165ppi. The black colored casing has 3 capacitive touch controls on the front.
The smartphone runs Android v2.3.5 Gingerbread OS and is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor working in combination with a RAM of just 256MB. The internal memory of the device is equally poor at 512MB. It can however be expanded up to 32GB via the microSD slot.
Handling the camera needs of the user are the 2MP digital camera at the back and a VGA camera on the front. Connectivity features include 3G, GPS, Bluetooth v2.1, Wi-Fi and USB port. The Hi-Tech S230 Amaze is fuelled by a 1,200mAh Li-ion battery promising to deliver up to 3 hours of talktime and up to 300 hours of standby life in 2G.
The Hi-Tech S230 Amaze looks good as a smartphone as it has all the basic features despite being available at a low range. However, it comes with an outdated OS and a poor configuration. Go for it if you want to buy a smartphone for basic usage and not gaming or other resource intensive activities.
