Verdict

Considering the fact that the Obi brand is backed by an ex-Apple CEO, the device looks quite promising. While a premium design and a powerful configuration was expected from the company's first flagship, an affordable price tag makes the deal even sweeter.

Display and configuration

The Obi Octopus S520 offers a 5-inch, 720p IPS display that runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. Under the hood ticks an octa-core processor from MediaTek clocked at 1.7GHz. The processor has been complemented by a gigabyte of RAM to ensure a seamless operation even when you are multi-tasking. The device flaunts an aluminium back, and looks quite sturdy. 

Camera and storage

For shutterbugs, the Octopus S520 has an 8-megapixel auto focus primary camera with flash. Besides, you also get a 2MP front snapper for video calling and selfies. The handset is equipped with 8GB of built-in storage, which if falls short, can be expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card.

Connectivity and battery

The Obi Octopus S520 comes with two SIM slots accepting a regular and a micro-SIM, both of which support 3G connectivity. Other connectivity options in the device include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0 and A-GPS. It is fuelled by an 1,800mAh battery, which claims to deliver a talk time of four hours and a standby time of 180 hours.
