Here we go with the spec sheet of Swipe Elite Notepad 3 -
Design and build
Unlike the regular devices in the phablet range, this Swipe device has a considerably less thickness. You can handle device singlehandedly in a comfortable manner. The frame has golden rims which gives it a metallic look. The back cover is removable.
The smartphone carries a 5.5 inch HD IPS display. The screen is protected by DragonTail glass. The viewing angles are comfortable enough. Even the sunlight legibility is quite good. The brightness is reasonable enough.
The Swipe Elite Not 3 is powered by MediaTek quad-core 1.3 GHz processor. There is a 3 GB RAM coupled with 16 GB of internal storage. It can be expanded by another 32 GB using microSD card. Graphics are taken care of by Mali T720 GPU. The combination of the hardware is good enough. However, there are some issues with the performance. Heating issues are observed. At times, you get frequent warnings to shut down the device due to high temperature. There are problems with touch performance as well.
The device has a combination of 13 and 5 MP resolutions for the rear and front cameras respectively. Rear camera has autofocus along with special features like phase detection, smile shot etc. The qulaity of the shots taken are not great by the standards of a 13 MP shooter. Indoor and low light shots are quite disappointing. To sum it up, it isn't the best camera.
The smartphone is powered by Android Lollipop 5.1. The customisation is provided by Freedom OS. The skin is not much smooth. The customisation is quite heavy which causes frequent app crashes. Gesture support is available.
Battery and other features
Battry capacity is quite impressive at 3000 mAh. It gives you almost 15 hours of backup with moderatre usage. Connectivity features are quite standard with Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, 4G/LTE connectivity and other regular connectivity options. The most demended feature - USB OTG - is available on this device. The phone offersSIM functionality.
Price and availability
You mau buy the Swipe Elite Note at Rs. 7999 on Flipkart. The device is readily available for purchase. However, I do not treat it as the best option to buy. There are few issues that need to be sorted out. Camera quality is a big reason for disappointment. Good alternatives could be Coolpad Note 3 or Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus.

Here's the overview of Swipe Elite Notepad 3.
Swipe has kept the device on previous version of Android (Lolipop) with third party ROM. Due to the ROM being more focused on accessibility, it may not be good looking device.
Hardware Device has 5.5'' IPS touch screen. It has 1.3 GHz processor with 3GB RAM. The default storage is 16GB extendable upto 32 GB. Graphics wise device has better performance. Though you may find that it has some heating issues.
Camera: As per some of the reviews the camera is not that impressive. If you check the shots taken by the camera, you'd find that even the most common images with autofocus are with grains. Device has 13MP primary camera resolution that doesn't justify these results. Also the 5MP secondary camera may not help the case.
Network Compared to Coolpad Note 3, you'll find Swipe Elite Notepad 3 device has no support for 4G LTE network. Rest of the connectivity is pretty much the same like Coolpad Note 3. Device has Dual SIM with support for both CDMA network included. Other features include Wifi, Bluetooth and USB OTG connectivity.
In short if we compare it with Coolpad Note 3 then you may find that it may not be good enough on many grounds. Besides you'd find the device missing some features such as gyroscope and few hardware benefits that Coolpad Note 3 which includes better camera lens. However the price 7999 Rs justifies the features being offered.

Here are the specifications of Swipe Elite Note
Swipe Elite note comes with 5.5 Inch Touchscreen display with 720x1280 pixels resolution. With dimensions of 154.00 x 77.10 x 8.40 and a weight of 194 grams it fits easily in hand but might be a little heavy. Unlike other products which have corning gorilla glass protection, this screen is protected by DragonTail glass.
Powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MTK6735 processor will complete the task pretty quickly and with 3 GB RAM, it should be a super fast beast when it comes to multi-tasking and handling high-end graphics games. With 16 GB internal storage and also has support for a memory card, where you can extend its storage capacity to 32 GB.
3. Software & Camera
Operated by Android Lollipop with freedom skin under it, which will enable to cross over the interface pretty smoothly. With the 13 MP rear camera which has flash enabled you can get crisp pictures and also 5 MP front camera will serve for selfie addicts. This is powered by 3000 mAh battery and will serve a whole working day though it depends on your usage.
4. Other Details
It has WIFI, Bluetooth, GPS, infrared enabled with dual sim and also has support to OTG cable. Only of the SIM is supported to 4G and the other is 3G. It is available in only black color and the price of this stellar piece is Rs 7999 which is available in Flipkart.
5. Elite v/s Coolpad
These two devices ( Swipe Elite Notepad and Coolpad Note 3 ) are best at what they do. With almost the same features as Swipe but the Coolpad price is around Rs 8,499 which can be a bit problem where we can get the one with the same features for Rs 7999. So, as of my opinion its better to go with Swipe Elite given the price tag for it rather than the cool pad note.
