Bravis A553 Discovery is an affordable smartphone with a sleek body – Review, Full Specs and Price

Bravis A553 Discovery is another affordable smartphone from Bravis. The device comes with a full metal unibody, that’s sleek and pleasurable to hold. The OEM is fond of designing smartphones and not including their logo on it. I don’t think the company even have a logo, the body of the A553 Discovery is so plain, you might think it’s a clone. It comes with low-class specs as well for those on a tight budget. Want to know more about the Bravis A553 Discovery? Lets dig in.

The body is so plain, just like I expected, it seems like Bravis doesn’t have a logo yet. However there’s something about the Metal body that looks inviting, it’s comfortable to hold and flaunt as well.
