World’s Cheapest first Android Smartphone Freedom 251

The Freedom 251 official smartphone will be unveiled by the bells manufacturer in India soon, and that seems to be the cheapest smartphone in the world. Android 5.1, it sounds on paper usable as a phone – it can not impress anyone, but at a price of just Rs. 251, which is not exactly need to take it in terms of performance. However, there are some points of concern over the phone, as noted when we got our Freedom 21 unit.

For starters, the unit received 251 Freedom carries the Adcom logo, which was covered with an adhesive. Adcom is a Delhi-based importer of IT products that deals with smartphones and tablets.


At first glance, the Freedom 251 appears similar to Adcom Ikon 4 and has fairly similar specifications as well. The Adcom Ikon 4 also has a similar design, and has a 4-inch screen, Android 5.1, one 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, 5 megapixel rear camera and front camera of 1.3 megapixel, with 8GB of storage and 1GB RAM.

Moreover, the Freedom of the user interface 251 is customized to look a lot like an iPhone. In fact, many of the icons look identical to the applications that come with the Apple phone, which makes us wonder if it will attract some attention from lawyers in Cupertino.

This is not the only cause for concern though. All phones sold in India must be certified by Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). Achieving this certification done is both time consuming and expensive.


However, it seems that the BIS bells Freedom 251 registration was not done, since it is not listed in the list of manufacturers registered by the BIS. This means that if the phone is a new device made by ringing the bells, so he has not been certified as safe for use in India.
