Plum Phantom Pros & Cons Review

Picture of the Plum Phantom, by Plum

- Analysis by Christelle Nina

The Plum Phantom enjoys a relatively-good set of camera specs compared to the typical budget Android. The 13-megapixel, auto-focus-equipped camera residing at the rear sounds like a promising prospect at this smartphone's market. To add, the 8-megapixel sensor up front likely won't leave selfie-lovers utterly-disappointed, either.

The catch here, however, is that the Phantom evidently didn't place its hardware among its top priorities. With only 1GB of RAM and 1.3GHz of CPU clock speed , it fails to leave an impressive mark in this particular facet.

As for aesthetics-related pros and cons, the Phantom didn't fail to align itself with the trend of sleek-looking metallic finishes . It's relatively-light at 138 grams , as well. However, we noticed that its 8.8mm depth stands out against those of its competitors' -- and not in a good way. This is surprising, considering that its 2500mAh battery is pretty average.

Lastly, one of the Plum Phantom's main selling points is undeniably its large 6-inch display . Such a screen size would likely really appeal to gamers and multimedia enthusiasts. However, it doesn't have a solid display resolution to back this up, relying instead on a 1280-pixel by 720-pixel resolution . This results to a rather-diluted sharpness of around 245DPI .

This device's pros and cons reveal a camera-focused profile, with an auxiliary strength in its large screen size (but not its resolution). However, one can't rely on the rest of its specs to bring mind-blowing performance. But being a budget phone, this last fact isn't really that surprising.
