Telenor Smart 3G is a low-end smartphone that has a better design and low specifications, discussed in detail below.
The most adorable thing in this smartphone is the design of the device. Which is very astonishing and attractive from the user’s end and looks quite cool, astounding and surprising with its two way metallic netting on the top edge and low edge putting good impression. This also takes the device with a different look. The back side of the device has a rough and leather like cover with fine stitched like design. Amazing thing is that, the back cover looks exactly like been made of leather but it is made of plastic that has both tastes, looks like leather and is indeed a weightless plastic.
The RAM in the device is just 512MB, which is low and is not gonna fulfill the criteria for large and heavy apps, yet for a low-end phone with price as low as Rs:6000/=, 512MB memory is efficient and much enough to balance the tussle between price and device.
Telenor Smart 3G has a dual core processor with just 1GHz speed. The chip-set is that of Media-Tech with chip-set model MT6572 of 32 Bit. The frequency fluctuates between (low as 598.0 & high as 1001.0) MHz.
The device has 4GB internal storage memory that has been divided in to two, one for System storage and the other for Internal storage. The device also supports micro SD card, if someone is willing to keep huge data.

The device takes over 7500 over the bench, that is much much better in the category of low-end smartphones.
With Telenor Smart 3G, we can play the low-end games with smooth and sharp display. Although we are restricted and couldn’t play the high specs games with heart touching performance and graphics, yet we can enjoy 3G internet along with these types of games with a low price.
A device fitted with 512 MB RAM, 1GHz dual-core processor with 3G support is a low end device with specifications almost equal to that of Samsung Galaxy S2. The main thing is that, you may not get Samsung Galaxy S2 even in the grey market with just RS:6000/= yet you can get a brand new Telenor Smart 3G with full year warranty in that price.
