Following the success of its preceding smartphones, Touchkon has been able to establish itself in the Nepalese smartphone space as a player that offers one of the best value for its customers’ money Touchkon introduced the M602 a couple of weeks ago at ICT electronics and Branding Expo. We had a chance to play with this device for couple of hours .So, let’s check on our article what’s special about the new phone.

Touchkon has been successful in imitating the Huawei P6 design. Thankfully, with the M602, things have changed for the better. The front is dominated by the 5-inch 1280x720p display and with IPS panel and OGS technology; display is vibrant and not overly saturated. The aluminum back is classy and feels premium.
The quad-core Mediatek chipset and Android v4.2 Jelly Bean together make it a decent Android smartphone with smooth performance. But with the price tag of Rs.27000, we expect it to have a Snapdragon processor.
The 13MP camera does not automatically put this camera at par with the S4 or the Sony Xperia Z. The images looked good on the phone, nothing spectacular. The 8MP front facing camera however, does a decent job.The 2000mAh battery doesn’t look eye pleasing but we need to check the battery performance.
A brief look of the handling of device is shown in the video below:
CUT TO THE CHASE
Touchkon M602 is good, but there is nothing to justify the price tag. With a price of 27000,you can get MotoG 16GB version or Huawei ascend G700. However,the build quality and design is the best under 30K category.
