- Analysis by Christelle Nina
FIGO has equipped the Orion with a relatively-nice main camera that can take 8-megapixel photos . The 2-megapixel selfie cam , on the contrary, is a far cry from its rear-mounted counterpart.

Unfortunately for performance-conscious folks, the Orion doesn't have anything astounding to brag about as far as its hardware goes. With a quad-core CPU that runs at an almost-painful 1GHz and only 1GB of RAM , there exists better performance-leaning models in the budget market when it comes to this particular section of its pros and cons.
What this device can rightfully boast about though is its 3000mAh battery . Compared to similar smartphones from other brands, it has a definite upper hand in this specific benchmark.
Unsurprisingly, this extra battery power has given way for a thicker profile to materialize. At 9.4mm , it's significantly-bulkier than many of the competition.
Perhaps to make up for this potential eyesore, FIGO dressed the Orion in a metal body with a "mirror-like" finish . Right off the bat, it does look like it could be worth a few dollars more than its actual release value.

Its display specs are unexciting for the most part. The 1280 x 720 resolution on its 5-inch IPS screen is not entirely disappointing, but we feel like one can find better similar-priced options if display quality is on top of the priority list.
The FIGO Orion clearly has a battery-and-aesthetics-focused personality. Its pros and cons are pretty much what one would expect from the typical budget Android -- in the sense that some specs (which are the 2-megapixel selfie camera and 1GHz processor, in this case) had to be kept at a down-low to accommodate the aforementioned good points.
