Would you like to offer sugared water for whatever is left of your life, or would you like to accompany me and change the world?” These acclaimed words talked by the late Steve Jobs may in any case be resounding in John Sculley’s ears. Sculley, who was the CEO of Pepsi before Jobs enlisted him to lead Apple in 1983, in the long run wound up terminating Jobs himself from Apple in 1985. Employments’ ascent from the fiery debris after that is fabulous, yet less is thought about what happened to Sculley. He’s been a fruitful financial specialist; he’s attempted his hand at legislative issues; and he’s most recent endeavor is an organization called Obi Mobiles, which needs to break developing cell phone markets like India with great, ease handsets.

Obi’s first telephone called the Worldphone SF1 just went at a bargain on Amazon India for Rs. 11,999 for the 16 GB form and Rs. 13,999 for the 32 GB rendition. Can it stand its ground on a swarmed market?


Looks to Kill

The Obi Worldphone S1 is faultlessly planned. The back is smooth and matte-completed with an Obi logo embellished in the base left corner, and the showcase sits marginally over its smooth, metallic body. This is a telephone I couldn’t resist parading at each chance I got.It’s not especially overwhelming at 147 gm, which is astounding, on the grounds that both the top and the base edges are encased in a strong, steel packaging to secure against unintentional drops.In spite of the fact that what is truly astounding is Obi’ choice to put the force and the volume rockers on the left, which took some getting used to as a privilege gave client.



Controlling the SF1is an octa-center Snapdragon 615 chipset timed at 1.5Ghz packaged with Adreno 405 illustrations and 3GB of RAM. That just implies that the guts are unequivocally mid-range — and it appears. Ordinary undertakings, for example, web-scanning and email are smooth, and playing amusements like Fruit Ninja and Subway Surfer functions admirably, however start up a top of the line diversion like Asphalt, or attempt to juggle numerous applications, and watch the SF1 falter perceptibly. The telephone runs Android 5.0.2 with Lollipop and Obi’s Lightspeed UI, which is pretty, however slacks like damnation and truly influences your general experience

I adored the sound nature of the telephone, which packs a punch on account of the Dolby Audio application, which boots sound levels while listening on earphones or outer speakers. The 5-creep top quality showcase is heavenly and recordings looks astonishing. Hues are regular: whites are brilliant, and the blacks are profound and dull.

There’s a 3,000 mAh battery that powers the SF1 for around 9 hours on a solitary charge, which is at standard with gadgets in this value range.

Can it Shoot?

On paper, the SF1’s camera is amazing. It includes a 13 megapixel sensor at f/2.0. However, that is on paper. All things considered, the SF1 took pictures that were…OK. They weren’t horrendous, however different telephones in this value range like Xiaomi’s Mi 41 and the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser are vastly improved. Hues in the photos taken from the SF1 were dull with a yellowish tinge. Pictures taken in low-light aren’t incredible either. There is a 5-megapixel front-confronting camera with backing for blaze, which benefits an occupation at clicking selfies.



Should you purchase it?

Valued at Rs. 11,999 and Rs. 13,999 relying upon the rendition you purchase, the Obi Worldphone SF1 is…not truly the best value for your money. Without a doubt, it looks astonishing, the showcase is awesome, and the sound quality is decent. In any case, the camera and the execution aren’t generally up to the imprint with different telephones in the same value section
