Idea Zeal - Expert Reviews

Introduction

The competition for new smartphones has been increasing at a rapid pace and one would think twice before entering into it but Idea has been very enthusiastic about it and the name Idea Zeal is absolutely apt for a smartphone. But the decision would make sense as the company must have done enough marketing research for the same and since India is a developing country there is a lot of scope to appeal the lower spectrum of the population. Also the company is no stranger to the telecommunication industry and should see this as a new challenge to conquer. Idea Zeal is a dual-SIM device that is backed by the Android as its operating with Gingerbread version 2.3. Now this is one place where Idea could have gone for a little higher version of Android, that is, either Ice Cream Sandwich or Jelly Bean would have helped the handset to gain more popularity. The phone is compatible with the 3G technology and would thus give the users a fast working Internet.

The user can access the web through the Wi-Fi technology or the WAP server and open multiple tabs with a little lag. The camera is of 3 megapixel strength that provides good quality pictures, not great. Video can also be shot and although there is the zoom facility, the more the user zooms, the more distorted the video or image will become. Other data connectivity features include a Bluetooth facility, a USB port and the GPRS and EDGE facility. Multimedia features include the music player and the video player but the music quality of the former is pretty bad specially when heard through the loudspeakers. The loudness is really not there although the quality may improve with loudspeakers. FM radio is also available for accessing the popular radio stations.

The device is powered by the 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor that makes the device a fast working gadget, which if would have been coupled with at least 1GB RAM, then might have made the device special. The internal memory is of 512MB, which is pretty decent and in case the user wants to expand it, he or she can do so by using a microSD card slot. There is however a 4GB memory card already in the device. The battery of 1,300mAh powers the device and delivers a good amount of talk time and standby time.

Operating system and UI

Idea Zeal has a 3.5 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen. The screen is backed by lots of sensors including G-sensor whereas the resolution at which it works is 320 by 480 pixels. The display quality is okay or can be termed as decent but clearly Idea has not placed display resolution as their top most priority.

 

Other Features

Idea Zeal has lots of multimedia features including a music player and a video player along with a FM radio. The music player is compatible with the format of mp3 whereas the video player supports MP4. The FM radio feature lets the user access the desired radio stations.

 

Camera

Idea Zeal has a 3 megapixels primary camera, which enables the user to click pictures at a resolution of 320 by 480 pixels. The quality of the pictures is good not the kind that you can hang on the wall. The user can also shoot videos but a secondary camera for video calling is not available.

Connectivity

Idea Zeal has the Wi-Fi facility that allows the user to access the web so as to download videos, games or visit the desired web sites like YouTube or popular social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.

 

Memory

Idea Zeal has an internal memory of 512MB while a memory card of 4GB comes included in the device. The user, if finds the memory still insufficient, can use the microSD card slot to further enhance the external memory up to 32GB.

Other Features

Idea Zeal is backed by the Android Gingerbread operating system that allows the user to access lots of games and apps from a huge pool but the options are less as compared to the ones offered by Android Jelly Bean or even Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

 

Battery

Idea Zeal is powered by the standard lithium-ion battery of 1,300mAh that makes sure that the user gets a talk time of up to 4 hours in 3G along with up to 7 hours in 2G. The standby time that the user gets is up to 200 hours in 3G and up to 300 hours in 2G.

Connectivity

Idea Zeal has loads of data connectivity features including the USB port that makes sure that the user can connect the device with computers and laptops so as to charge the device whereas the bluetooth facility allows the user to exchange data with other devices wirelessly provided that the corresponding device supports the same technology. There is also the GPRS facility but other high end features like NFC is not available.

 

Other Features

Idea Zeal when compared to Micromax Ninja 3 A57 has a similar screen size with 3.5 inches although the display quality is better with the latter as it is powered by the HVGA TFT capacitive touchscren. Both the devices have a 1GHz processor and are also same in terms of the strength of primary camera with 3 megapixels. The operating system is Android Gingerbread with both the devices and ironically the two do not provide any kind of upgrades for the next level. Other features are more or less the same too but in terms of design, Micromax Ninja 3 A57 is way better than Idea Zeal.

Other Features

6th March 2013: Idea Zeal is a dual-SIM Android smarthone that has a 3.5 inch TFT screen, whereas for connectivity, the handset is backed by the 3G technology. Powered by a 1GHz qualcomm snapdragon processor, Idea Zeal runs on Android gingerbread operating system. The 256MB RAM is pretty low with the device that might creates problems sometimes while running two or more heavy applications simultaneously, although the 1GHz processor will compensate the same to some extent. As far as memory is concerned, a 4GB memory card comes included with the device while a microSD card slot is there for further expansion up to 32GB.
