Touted Android O Update:
The Smartron srt.phone runs on the latest Android N operating system and the company promises one Android security update every quarter. Moreover, the handset is touted an Android O update. By going through the specifications, the srt.phone looks pretty good and a performer just like Sachin Tendulkar. Best of all, the company provides unlimited storage through T-cloud. It will not disappoint you in terms of performance as it is completely designed and engineered in India.
However, the phone lacks the premium feel due to its plastic body shell. Moreover, the selfie camera is not that great. Leaving that aside, the Smartron srt.phone steals your heart with its ultimate performance. Kindly post your valuable feedback.
