The Rs 7,999 affordable device takes Lenovo Vibe P1m, Coolpad Note 3 Lite and Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime head on.
The device comes with a 5.5-inch HD IPS display, quad-core processor, 8MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front camera with 84.4 degree wide viewing angle. The 4GLTE-enabled device packs 2500mAh battery.
It has 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 32GB via a micro-SD card.
Here is what works for the device.
TCL 560 is the only smartphone in the current price range that comes with iris-based “EyeVerify” unlock feature and runs on Android Marshmallow operating system.
To use EyeVerify, go to Settings and under Lock screen tab, tap on the Screen Lock to create an Eyeprint. It takes almost a minute to capture your Eyeprint.
When you want to unlock the device, a small window appears on top of screen that verifies the captured Eyeprint and unlocks the smartphone in approximately three seconds.
TCL 560 sports a curved design with glossy metal finish on the back that looks elegant and is comfortable to use with one hand.
The In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology delivered good brightness and contrast levels and wide viewing angles. The 5.5-inch display provides plenty of real estate to watch movies, play games, etc.
The touch response is also good and the Android Marshmallow operating system felt smooth.
