Idea has introduced Smartphone ID 918 to help you take care of both your professional and personal life requirements. This mobile phone runs Android v2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system on 256 MB of RAM to deliver a smooth multi-tasking experience. The bar-shaped Idea ID 918 comes fitted with a 3.2 inch TFT screen that adds dynamism to the graphics and images with 320 x 480 pixels of resolution. Additionally, this is a capacitive touchscreen that promptly reacts to your touch thus keeping latency at bay.

Idea has loaded this mobile phone with some of the most sought after features. The user-friendly nature of this phone gets a boost from gravity sensor and proximity sensor. While the gravity sensor is responsible to adjust the orientation of the display unit from landscape to portrait mode, and vice versa, depending on the positioning of the device, the proximity sensor locks the screen while you are on a call to avoid any accidental touch.

The Smartphone ID 918 houses a 1300 mAh Li-Ion battery to meet the heavy duty requirements of all the applications. This battery promises to fuel up to 4 hours of talk time and up to 200 hours of standby time.

This Idea Smartphone has packaged most of the multimedia features to keep you entertained. The ID 918 features a music player and a video player supporting multiple formats to let you enjoy your favourite song or movie while you are commuting from one place to another. The integrated FM Radio allows you to tune into your favourite radio station. This Idea mobile phone comes loaded with a 3.5 mm audio plug that allows you to either connect your headphone or an external speaker for an enhanced audio experience.

Connectivity and Features

The Idea Smartphone ID 918 has bundled most of the modern day connectivity features to bring the world close to you. The GPRS and EDGE enabled Idea mobile phone lets you connect to the internet on 2G network. However, if speed is what allures you more, then surf the net at high speed with the 3G support. Also, WiFi feature of this phone lets you dive into the world of internet through the nearest available WiFi hotspot.

To help you exchange files and data with other devices in your immediate vicinity, this phone has bundled USB and Bluetooth feature. The MMS enabled Smartphone ID 918 allows you to send multimedia messages across the distance with the mediation of the network. Additionally, this smartphone will simplify your access to virtual life with pre-installed social networking and instant messaging applications.

This Idea Smartphone promises to be an ideal companion on your journey through an unknown city with A-GPS supported by Google Maps. So, don’t be afraid of exploring new places and cities. Apart from these features, the ID 918 offers you access to Idea TV to not let you miss out on your favourite TV show while you are away from your TV set.

First to review

Looks awasome and great value for money

Vivek, this phone can be used with any companys sim card .

At 5994, this phone is a great value for money. Not only dual sim, changbale covers and free 2GB memory make this a great buy. i got the demo of this in idea showroom and liked its display also.

Check this Drawbacks

These Phone Drawbacks
1) There is no Group Ringtone or Contact Ringtone and Contact Birthday info
2) Camera Quality too poor in low lighting & we can’t turn off the cam Shutter sound
3) While talking on one SIM other SIM is out of coverage area.
4) if we load photos taken from a 10 MP Camera and load into the phone, photos are blurred.
5) Main drawback is if we connect to hi-speed Wi-Fi [such as Fiber Optical Connections] the phone can’t install any application from Google Play store. It will show “Memory Full” but there is nearly 40 MB Memory of free space in phone internal memory.
6) W

Great for the price

Bought this as my backup phone. This is not very actively used but here are some impressions.

1. Great value. Good phone for what you pay.
2. Dual SIM. No carrier lock.
3. Good screen. Higher resolution than the competition.
4. Good build. Doesn't feel cheap when handling it.
5. Comes with all the usual accessories.

1. Sluggish processor. 1/2 star deducted.
2. Touch not very responsive due to processor. Of course my primary phone is a Galaxy S2 and hence I understand that I am getting what I paid for.
3. Very limited RAM. After updates and 2 other

I recommend this strongly.

A great dual sim smartphone. Fully loaded - even scratch guard is provided along with 2GB memory card and inter changable covers . I bought this phone in mumbai and highly satisfied with the use . The issue is that it is not availabl at most of the shops and hence i suggest that u guys can buy it from flipkart.
