Symphony i70 is an affordable smartphone with 16GB Storage – Review, Full Specs and Price

Symphony i70 was released in 2023 with average specs for light users. The stunning device packs 2GB RAM, 16GB Storage and an 8MP rear camera. The OEM knows exactly how budget smartphones are ‘hot cake’ in the market right and they keep releasing them.

Unlike the Roar series from Symphony, the i series comes with low-end specs. It retails for a token as well, making it accessible and affordable to almost anyone. Do you think you might be interested in the Symphony i70? Then stay with me.


Symphony i70

First of all, it comes with no fingerprint scanner, which is evident just by looking at the back. Only the i70 inscription is visible at the middle, with Symphony logo at the extreme bottom. At the top left lies the rear camera with the LED flash by the side.

Turning to the side, the power button and volume keys are present and it is surprisingly slim as well. It measures 7.85 mm in thickness and weighs 141g, making the Symphony i70 very comfortable to hold and operate. The plastic body is available in only black which i think didn’t do much justice to the body.


It sports three navigation buttons at the bottom bezel, the one in the middle looks like a fingerprint sensor. But apparently it’s not, so the feature is NOT on the device. At the top bezel, the speaker grille, selfie camera and LED flash are all present.

The 5.2-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen boasts of 1280 x 720 pixels in resolution. Videos and games should display beautifully but don’t expect extremely sharp details. It has a 16:9 aspect ratio and 282 pixel per inch density. The multi-touch screen couldn’t even reach the 70% screen to body ratio mark, as it pegs on 69.1%.

Hardware and Software

Under the hood is the MediaTek MT6580 chip with Quad-core processor for a smooth ride. The maximum speed the processor could reach is 1.3GHz, with 32-bit CPU architecture and 28nm process technology. In the graphics department, the ARM Mali-400 MP1 graphics processor is fully in charge, reaching a clock speed of 500 MHz.

Multitasking on this baby should be an easy one, with 2GB RAM space available, reaching a memory speed of 533MHz. The 16GB internal storage space should be enough for all files and games. You can upgrade up to 64GB by using a memory card if you wish. The i70 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat operating system with modified user interface.


Two 8MP camera are present on this affordable device, one at the back and one at the front, both with f/2.0 aperture. You can capture 3K resolution images with the smartphone, with image dimension as high as 3266 x 2449 pixels. When in low lights environments, both LED flash at the front and back should do the trick. Record videos of 720 pixels as well at 30 frames per second.


Powering the Symphony i70 up is a 2950mAh removable Li-Po battery with no fast charging technology support. Charging up the battery from 0% to 100% might take between 2-3 hours tops.
