Leave a Comment
With a number of Chinese OEMs entering the Indian market, Phicomm launched its debut smartphone earlier this month. In terms of specifications, the Phicomm Passion 660 features an IPS display, powered by 1.5 GHz Qualcomm octa-core processor with a 2 GB RAM. It comes with a 5-inch screen. The internal storage is 16 GB. It runs on Android 4.4 with Phicomm's skin, the Expect UI, and packs 2,300 mAh lithium-ion polymer battery.

The smartphone features an IPS display with a resolution of 1920x1080  pixels. It has three capacitive buttons for Menu, Home and Back. All of these buttons are placed just below the display. Additionally, there is a  5 MP front-facing camera lens located above the display on the top-right corner, just opposite to the side where buttons are located. The earpiece is located in the center, on the top.

The smartphone has high-end hardware that includes 1.5 GHz Qualcomm octa-core processor, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal flash memory (expandable up to 64 GB), a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash located just beside the camera lens, to its right. To the right of the LED flash is the secondary microphone. On the rear, the speakers are located on the bottom-right. At the top part, in the center, is the Phicomm branding. The device has a non-removable back.

The right side of the device features the power key. The device supports dual SIM, which can be inserted by opening the SIM tray present on the right side of the device. One thing to note is that either of these trays are also to be used as a micro SD slot. That means if you you decide to expand the storage of the device, you will have to live with a single SIM. On the contrary, if you choose to use both the SIMs, you will have to live with the in-built storage only.

The left side of the device features the volume rocker key.

Coming in at 110 g, the phone is very lightweight and makes me wonder if I'm actually carrying a device or not.

The box contains the smartphone with its display covered, along with a travel adaptor, a data cable, a user manual, a warranty card, a screen guard and a card pin to unplug the SIM card trays. There are no headphones in the box. The printed price on the box is
 13,999. It is being sold via Amazon at 10,999.
