The first time we picked up this smartphone, we noticed it looks a lot like the Starmobile Up Snap. We also noticed that the device is a little heavy.
Let’s check button and port placements – power/lock button and volume rocker on the right, 3.5mm headset jack (CTIA compliant) and USB charging port, 5 megapixel rear camera with flash and speaker at the back, sensors and 2 megapixel front camera at the front with the 5-inch display.
The 5-inch screen brightness can withstand outdoor light which we like. Despite only having qHD resolution, the display looks bright, vivid and color accurate. So far when it comes to navigation and basic tasks, the device gets the job done very well.
We will be testing more of the phone’s performance, battery and camera as we use this as our daily driver for a week.
