Obi has been around for well over a year. Soon after realizing that their initial range of strangely-named smartphones were not really a rage in India and other markets, the company has gone back to the drawing board and come out with a new, affordable, Android-based smartphone called the Obi Worldphone SF1. The idea here is to awe with design and surprise with the pricing, but we found the phone has quite a few surprise under its sleeve.
Obi Worldphone SF1
On paper the Obi Worldphone SF1 (yes, these guys are real good with their names) has a lot to offer. Given that it has a sub-$150 pricing, the phone tried to offer a lot to the customer, especially when it comes to the camera and display. But what really sets this phone apart is its design. No, there are no phones in this price range that looks as good. In fact, this US company has managed to give the phone a look that cleverly hides its Chinese origins. While most Chinese phones look the same, this phone is different. After all, it is “Designed in San Francisco and Assembled in China”. Yes, that will take a couple of months to be recreated in Shenzhen.
