imageIf you are a guitar buff , the audio company Marshall is nothing new to you , with retro inspired Guitar amps and speakers the company slowly shifted to the mobile market with bluetooth speakers ,but now ,Marshall has officially launched a Lollipop based Android smartphone which echoes its retro amp design throughout the device . The phone – named Marshall London , is basically a Snapdragon 410 powered smartphone underneath , the display is 4.7″ and it has a resolution of 720p , the phone has 2GB RAM , 16GB of onboard storage with MicroSD card expansion and a removable back cover which offers a 2500 mAh removable battery and access to sim and Sd card slots . The phone has a 8Mp rear camera and a LED flash , and it has a 2MP front camera along with two Audio jacks if you want to plug in two audio sets and it features a customizable Gold “M” button on top – which you can set in order to launch your favourite music app
¬†.The phone also has two stereo speakers – which Marshall says is the loudest ones on a smartphone , but that’s to be proven , but what ever it , the audio quality will be impressive as the phone features a Wolfson WM8281 DAC amp , a gold scroll wheel at the side – which lets you control the volume and a bespoke DJ app , FLAC and other high quality formats are also supported here . The Marshall London smartphone retails for $499 – which is a high price to pay for such a device , but then again , the removable battery , the audio amp and the Creior designed chassis (which is a Finnish company that designed many famous Nokia’s and Jolla smartphones) and removable battery makes this a good choice if you are into the world of music playing smartphones .
