Creo is a new company to join the crowded smartphone market today. Creo is from India and they aimed to produce smartphones through “Make in India” scheme. To mark their entry significant in the market, they also named their first smartphone as “Creo Mark 1”.
In the teasers from Creo in the last few months, they talked more about their software than the hardware. They promised that they would release monthly software updates to give a new smartphone feel for the users. They also offered a custom engrave option for the users.
For the first made itself, they tried to make their mark strong in the market. The specs sheet clearly showed this is not a budget smartphone. The expert opinions are so far good about this device. Only concern is the Service Center availability. The company claims they have service centers in important cities.

This new Creo Mark 1 is available in India now, and the price is Rs.20,000. This is a bit pricier in my opinion. This device is being sold exclusively on Flipkart. It is making us think that Exclusive Flipkart mobile phones are always pricier than what they deserve in the regular market. When compared to some of the midrange phones selling at Rs.15,000 or less, Creo Mark 1 only got the 2560 X 1440 Screen resolution and 21MP camera as upgraded feature. Remaining specs sheet are same to those midrange phones available around Rs.15,000.
