Design and Display

Talking about the design of the device, Pepsi P1S is a very attractive smartphone. And what attracts the most is the Pepsi logo on its back that we have been seeing since our childhood. The phone is available is two colour variants : Gold and Silver and both are equally good but there’s a slight variation in the price of both colours. The 5.5-inch smartphone doesn’t feel too big in hand and is very comfortable for single handed use. Pepsi P1s weighs around 162 gm and 0.28 inches thick. Thus the phone is really light weight and is very slim that together gives a very comfortable experience to the user.

The phablet has a 5.5-inch display having HD screen resolution (1280 x 720) which gives better colour quality and sharp images. The 2.5D arc screen type surely provides a premium feel just by looking at the phone. But Sadly it doesn’t have any protection glass over the screen and that according to me is the only flaw in the P1S. Anyway, each device has its Pros and Cons. Now let’s move further with our P1S review.

Pepsi P1S is equipped with 1.7 GHz MediaTek MTK6592 Octa Core processor. Also, we have reviewedCubot X9 that comes with more or less  same processor. MTK6592 enhances the user experience, the phone won’t lag at all. You can easily play high-end graphic games with ease. That’s the best processor you can get under a $100 smartphone, and the company has made sure that you get the best.

The phone comes with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory that are sufficient to maintain a balance with the processor for providing great user experience. You can also increase the storage of the device with an external TF card up to 64GB. And using external memory for storing your personal files surely do increase the performance of the device. The Pepsi P1S lacks OTG support, and I think should have been present as it’s becoming very demanding

About other features that enhance the performance of this device, P1S is powered by a fingerprint sensor on its back just above the Pepsi logo. Now, that makes it a great deal, right? Surely yes, what more you can expect with a $100 smartphone.

Camera and Battery

Now coming to the camera quality of Pepsi P1S, the phone has an awesome 13MP rear camera to capture great quality images. The rear camera is also powered by dual flashlight to give more amount of light in the dark to capture good pictures. It produces good quality, sharp and extremely detailed pictures. You too get a great 5MP front facing camera to capture your selfies.

And lastly about the battery capacity of the Pepsi P1S, it is equipped with a 3000mAh battery. Yes could have been more but I think it’s enough to last a day with general use. Increasing the battery capacity greatly affects the dimension of the phone. That was all in the Pepsi P1S review, hope you’ll like the phone and order one for yourself.

  • Octa-core Processor
  • Full HD Screen
  • Fingerprint Scanner
  • A great 13MP camera
  • No screen protection
  • No OTG Support

Final verdict

Considering all the PROS and CONS, Pepsi P1S is an amazing device with great features that cost you less than $100 only.With the features like octa-core processor, Full HD screen, 2GB RAM and fingerprint scanner it’s a truly recommended device to buy. You just have to head over to to order one for yourself.
