Construction / design / quality
Plastic, but solid
Vertis is typical of low-end price range. This phone made entirely of plastic, characterized by standard dimensions (145 x 74 x 10.1 mm) for this type of equipment. The smartphone is locked in a black case, which is adorned with silver frame around.The front panel has three buttons Android system, with up smiling in turn, an additional lens camera with a resolution of 2 megapixels, you can see a speaker headset. At the top of the manufacturer placed the jack mini-jack 3.5 mm and a USB port for communication with a computer and power battery with a capacity of 2100 mAh. On the left side of the smartphone's dual-function button positioned media. On the right – the lock button and turn on the unit. At the bottom you can see only a hole for the microphone. [Nggallery id = 512 template = techmaniak] The rear panel is equipped with a main camera (5 megapixels) with flash LED, printed brand logo and a speaker. The individual components fit together well, which is not in this price category is obvious. Vertis is at the same time quite comfortable and seems durable equipment.
5-inch qHD resolution
The main feature of Vertis is a 5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels, which translates to a density of 220 PPI. The distinction between individual letters even at small font is possible and quite comfortable, but also helps quite a high contrast ratio. Screen captures well the color and possesses an optimal viewing angles (which we owe to the type of matrix), while the colors may appear slightly faded – certainly closer to the color known monitorków Sony and HTC, than the Super AMOLED Samsung s. On the plus side deserves the color temperature, located in the natural limits. Brightness, in turn, is a maximum of 352 cd/m2, ensuring readability in sunlight. The minimum value is 43 cd/m2 backlight.
Robust operating times
2100 miliamperogodzin the value niezachwycająca … but only on paper. Vertis In practice, doing very well, providing a robust runtime. Results of stress tests can be found below – all were made equal to the brightness of 120 cd/m2. [Test slug = "battery" virtual = "interview, video-wifi-off, internet-3g-wifi internet, instant messaging-wifi, load-ac" product_id = "19404"] When it comes to testing "sensational" – Vertis not no major problems with hardly able to withstand all day, even in active use. However, I would advise to recharge it every night.
The camera and filming
8 megapixel camera with LED Illuminates
Overmax your smartphone equipped with a camera with pretty good resolution, characterized by an additional LED Illuminates, which can also function as a flash. In practice, we get better images than competitive products in the same price. Also, get a touch autofocus here – it may happen that the phone will cease to sharpen, a small software error, possible to improve with the advent of updating the system. In the meantime, it is sufficient to restart the device. [Nggallery id = 514 template = techmaniak] The application itself is not a photo. Overmax attempted to implement the more advanced, but not taken care of the Polish location. Fortunately, the most important features are illustrated with legible icons, and quality settings photographing and filming often choose only once. The phone does not have problems remembering your preferences. Example photos
Vertis can record video in 720p (1280 x 720) with 30 frames per second. The camera copes well with tonal gradations and representation of movement, especially for a device with a lower shelf. See for yourself:
Dual SIM support for Aero 2
Overmax features two slots for SIM cards Mini, one of which supports WCDMA, second only to GSM. For the former we can, for example, insert the Aero 2 and enjoy the unpaid internet. Just before, the menu, determine which slot is used as a target. The latter will take the default function to receive and make phone calls.Access to the Aero 2 is conditioned by manually entering the APN in the system settings. Vertis has no problems with maintenance coverage. Smartphone tested in different districts of Krakow and every time – if you do not accidentally drove through the tunnel – maintain a sufficient number of "bars". The phone is appropriately loud, we could hear the caller even under heavy traffic. The microphone also works well, the five people who shamelessly used the test to a modest, had no objections to the clarity of voice.
Run all the games, but they can cut the most demanding
Overmax put on inexpensive, but stable solutions MediaTek. The performance of the smartphone equivalent MT6589 chipset, based on a 4-core processor ARM Cortex-A7, clocked at a maximum frequency of 1.21 GHz for each core. Responsible for the graphics card, in turn, PowerVR SGX544MP – so quite a strong GPU, especially for equipment for about 600 dollars. The smartphone runs smoothly, no lags, no stutters during everyday tasks. Web browsing, paging through the following tabs in the menu and make notes belong to pleasurable activities, the response does not have long to wait, even compared to flagship models. 1 GB of memory will also enable Vertis possible development in the future, if the manufacturer would have made the upgrade to Release Android 4.3 or later.All the games I've tested, are compatible with the product Overmax, and in the most advanced animation slowdown occurred. This kind of problem noted in Asphalcie 8: Airborne and Modern Combat 4 and the Real Racing 3 running smoothly (except inserts intro). Simpler productions such as Angry Birds or Dead Trigger are run without the slightest hesitation. The synthetic tests Vertis coped well. Exceeded including "Magic" limit four thousand. points in Quadrancie Pro, won a not too bad result in the traditional 3DMark. Multimedia also not alien to this device, but now compatible with HD clips leaves much to be desired.

Software / functionality
Android 4.2.1 with minor modifications
Once launched, the smartphone will be greeted by a standard set of icons known from other devices based on "pure" Android. Overmax tried to improve on their own, however, where it considered appropriate – minor modifications involving new in the notification bar, in the aforementioned camera application or in the settings menu, where available, the management section introduces SIM cards, sound profiles and the ability to set automatic shutdown. Unfortunately, nowhere to be taken care of Polish location.Vertis no problems with power management, support for different browsers selected by the handling of various launchers. The manufacturer has equipped the phone with 4 GB of memory while the user is available about 1.79 GB, where the role of internal memory space of 0.98 GB full. Fortunately, we have a microSD card slot and the ability to move each application the cloth or external media. WiFi coverage is maintained to the extent practicable, also do not have to worry about accidentally lose the connection. Below are some test scenarios in which we examined the sensitivity of the integrated module. Value, which is more than enough for a comfortable use of the Internet, an average of about -70 dBm.

Summary / evaluation / review
Simple, large smartphone with a good battery
Overmax Vertis is an affordable, versatile phone with Android 4.2 and a good graphics. It's fair to say that the issue on the 600 gold is the most acceptable, especially when you are looking for devices with good battery life. In view of the direct competition of Pentagram and Kruger & Matza, which is prevalent at a slightly more efficient components, you simply need to determine your priorities. Here you will get more than eight hours watching movies, and more than five hours surfing the web on Wi-Fi.Vertis is on the smartphone neatly folded, with a matt finish, which are far less visible fingerprints. From the appearance is completely neutral – and in fact it is difficult to find any major flaws. [temperature] DESIGN / QUALITY | 3.25 | DISPLAY | 3.5 | OUTPUT POWER | 3.75 | Camera | 3.75 | CAPACITY | 3.5 | SOFTWARE / FUNCTIONALITY | 3.75 [/ temperature]
Among the alternatives to the fore Pentagram Ego and Kruger & Matz Live, both at similar prices – these are not smartphones faster, enhanced with Qualcomm chips. Suffer not the best but the optimization of energy management and, quite simply, less capacious cells.
