Named as the Billion Capture+, this new phone sports a feature that has been trending in the smartphone world — a rear dual-camera setup.
Launched in the price range of Rs 10,999 for the 3GB/32GB variant and Rs 12,999 for the 4GB/64GB, it aims to give a tough competition to some of the trending dual camera phones in the sub-Rs 14,000 price bracket.
The Billion Capture+ not only features a dual-camera setup but also packs a snappy processor, the latest version of Android, and the Quick Charge 2.0 technique.
So, without further ado, let's have a quick roundup of the interesting features of this new phone from Flipkart.
Portrait mode seems to be the prime feature when it comes to dual-camera phones and the Billion Capture+ embraces this mode graciously.
It sports a 13+13-megapixel camera that can take pristine portraits where the background blurs softly while the subject stays in sharp focus.
All you need to do is focus on the object and click away – the rest of the job will be taken care by the phone.
2. Cool Night Mode
The Billion Capture+ packs a cool night mode, which lets you take awesome low-light pictures sans the noise.
The night mode in the Billion Capture+ works by increasing the shutter speed while it captures the photos.
While this may take a couple of seconds to save the picture, the end results are impressive with minimum noise and blur.
3. Pro Mode for Selfies
I agree with people who say that the built-in filters or the auto-mode for selfies aren't enough to capture actual beauty. However, the Billion Capture+ addresses this issue in a unique way — it lets you capture selfies in pro mode aka manual mode.
If you have a basic understanding of photography, you can click superb selfies by tweaking the exposure, the ISO level, or the white balance settings. The good news is that the tweaks can be seen in real time.
4. Kick Sound Out of Videos
Another handy feature of the Billion Capture+ is the one that allows you to turn the microphone off while recording a video.
All you have to do is tap on the microphone icon on the screen and press record.
What's more? You can also take a picture (while recording) just by touching the viewfinder.
5. Filters Even for Videos
Almost all the phones – be it budget or premium – pack a number of filters and effects for the auto mode.
The Quick Charge 2.0 can be equated to Fast Charge and can easily buy you a few hours worth of battery life in a short span of time.
7. Full HD Display
The Billion Capture+ sports an impressive FHD display with a DPI value of 480.
The images are sharp and vibrant and the sunlight legibility is not bad either. While you'd have to yank up the brightness a bit under harsh sunlight, the legibility index is enough under normal daylight conditions to let you see the screen clearly.
8. Unlimited Cloud Storage
Thanks to tronX, you can enjoy unlimited storage on the Billion Capture+. Notably, tronX is from Smartron, an Internet of Things (IoT) company that specializes in AI-powered IoT tech.
A highlight of the Billion Capture+ is the unlimited cloud storage
A highlight of Billion Capture+ is the unlimited cloud storage, powered by tronX. Once you register, you can sync your messages, call logs, and media files such as audio files, photos, documents, contacts, and etc.
This means that you won't have to worry about pictures and files eating up space. The unlimited cloud storage will take care of it seamlessly.
Similar to any backup tool, you'll be given the independence to choose the network settings.
9. The Beauty of Stock Android
The end of 2017 is close and Android Nougat has become a de-facto feature on any new Android phone. Keeping up with the trend, the Billion Capture+ also runs Android Nougat (7.1.2) and offers a stock Android experience.
The advantages of stock Android are many, including faster security patches, more storage, and a faster and earlier software update.
10. Snappy Processor
Last but not the least, the Billion Capture+ also comes with a snappy processor for its price. The 5.5-inch smartphone is powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 and 4GB of RAM (3GB for the base variant).
It also packs 64GB (32GB for the base variant) of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card.
It's worth to be noted that the Snapdragon 625 has featured in a number of budget offerings like the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 and Mi A1. It's mainly known for its efficient power management, thanks to the 14-nm architecture.
This means that not only will be the Billion Capture+ able to run games like a pro but will also be able to maintain its cool.
Worth Your Money?
These were some of the interesting features of Flipkart’s first phone — Billion Capture+. In a nutshell, not only do you get a phone with virtually unlimited storage, dual camera, and the Snapdragon 625 chipset for Rs. 12,999 but also a bigger battery to power the device for longer hours.
However, no phone is perfect and this one also lacks a few features such as NFC and optical zoom. The choice is ultimately yours. If these are some of the features that you can live without, the Billion Capture+ is a great phone for its price.
So, are you considering to buy the Flipkart Billion Capture+ as your next phone?
