Housing / quality
Reliably and comfortably
PAP3400 DUO is one of these phones, which are not expected (or at least should not be expected to) a spectacular presence. Despite this, it looks pretty good and without complexes can compare it with a similar class Samsungami or LG. Rounded shapes and optimum dimensions make it the model is easy to sticking and will fit almost any pocket. As befits the equipment from the lowest shelf, the housing is made of plastic. The side edges are made with a slick, shiny plastic, and the back cover is plastic with a very nice looking and functional invoice. Thanks to it, the back is scratch resistant and less slippery, which affects the grip, and by the way eliminates the problem of collecting fingerprints. The front part of the casing cover glass covering the screen, touch buttons, webcam for video calls and a speaker. A nice surprise is the fact that, despite the white color phone hardly collects dirt. [Nggallery id = 1040 template = techmaniak] The fitting housing parts is almost perfect. The entire structure is rigid and feels very solid. Clutching the phone in your hand you will not hear crackling, and on the sides of the buttons are securely fastened in their places. The smartphone is equipped as standard with two inputs – micro USB and headphone jack 3.5 mm. Unfortunately, both located on the upper edge and at a very short distance from each other, as in the case of custom cable plugs can simultaneously prevent their use.
TN with all its consequences
4-inch TN with 480 x 800 pixels is the unit of average performance, providing equally mediocre viewing experience. While the resolution can be considered as a standard color saturation is not the best, which especially hurts when we have a direct comparison with a good IPS or AMOLED-em-em. Then a small display Prestigio seems to be almost devoid of color. Also, the viewing angles are not strengths DUO 3400. When tilting the screen up and down perfectly visible is characteristic of the technology TN fading colors and negative effect. Fortunately, it is better in the case of deviations from side to side – then you do not notice a significant degradation of color accuracy. to adjust the brightness scale is relatively small. The minimum screen brightness is 61 cd / m 2, and so quite a lot, and the maximum value is 274 cd / m 2, which turns out to be insufficient in the strong sun. Touchpad most of the time works fine, but sometimes he blunders in the form of reaction in a different place than we expected. What's more, he is very sensitive to changes in humidity, which is very difficult to support it, when we have perfectly dry hands. The two-point supports multi-touch only when the points are in relation to each other up / down. If you touch the screen with two thumbs next to each other when the phone is in vertical position, the panel will read it as one point.
Modest but sufficient
[Test slug = "battery" virtual = "conversation, movies-wifi-off, internet-3g, internet-wifi, communicator-wifi, load-ac" product_id = "20042"] The phone is equipped with a modest link with a capacity of 1500 mAh. As expected, it provides runtimes at the correct level. Less than six hours watching movies, and nearly as many Internet browsing using WiFi is the result not the highest, but not problematic. Standard operating in "combined cycle" phone should withstand 24 hours. Charging the battery with the supplied charger takes approximately 2 hours, with a USB cable connected to the computer at least twice as long.
The device has a camera with a small sensor – 3.1 Mpix – and takes pictures at a resolution of 1536 x 2048 pixels (VGA resolution videos at 13 frames / sec.). It is a very weak unit, one of the weakest, with which I have dealt with the way testing phones. You can only compare it to webcams of the cheapest tablets. Pictures in almost any conditions come out blurred and the colors are faded. With less light is even worse and it does not help here, even a single LED. Do not beat around the bush – this phone is simply not suitable for taking pictures. The video also leaves much to be desired – use the camera function in this case should be a last resort, if we want to avoid embarrassment and biting comments from future viewers. The front camera can boast nearly identical quality photos and videos – that is dramatically weak. The application offers the possibility to adjust the camera's basic parameters and some additional features such as panorama, and smile detection practically useless.

For calls made
In this regard Prestigio 3400 DUO does not leave much to be desired. Conversations carried out very nicely, and the speaker is loud enough to hear the caller in all conditions. Compact size and light weight equipment also have a positive impact on comfort – even long sessions telephones are not tiring.Dialer application does not differ practically nothing from the standard Runner – provides sufficient functionality and speed of service.
For simple tasks at the same time
The performance corresponds MediaTek MT6572 system, which includes a dual-core ARM Cortex A7 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz (according to CPU-Z and Hardware Info, the manufacturer does 1.2 GHz) and Mali 400MP GPU. This team is supported by 512 MB of RAM. Setup is typical for low-end handset, but for optimum performance at the system interface. You can not have major reservations about the functioning of the application system and the speed of their run. However, when the game is here a small amount of memory and relatively weak processor severely limit the room for maneuver. In order to carry out a smooth and enjoyable gameplay we have to stay with simpler, less demanding titles. More advanced productions such. 2 Dead Trigger work with major problems or not start at all. Multimedia equipment is not surprising. The phone can handle video files with a maximum resolution of 720p and does not support DTS. [Wptab style = "4" title = "Agents"] 1.

Software / functionality
Pure Android and no GPS!
3400 DUO is running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean in pure form. Apart from a few adds little value applications, the manufacturer did not change anything in the system. Maybe it is better because the interface runs smoothly and thus stable, which is common in such a small amount of RAM. I do not know of any updates, so you can assume that this will not live to see. It is worth mentioning that a plug-in, browser support elements in flash. [Test slug = "wifi-phone" axis = "minus" product_id = "20042"] The phone is equipped with WiFi module running in b / g / n. The range is anywhere where we should expect, and the signal is stable. GPS is … unfortunately absent from the list of equipment. It is a pity that the manufacturer spared even on such basic functions – this lack is definitely one of the biggest drawbacks of the phone. Bluetooth 4.0 allows you to connect to external accessories at low power consumption.phone does not support USB OTG, so it is impossible to connect any external accessories by wire. 4 GB – enough internal memory manufacturer theoretically offers the user. In theory, because in practice, we can use only a little more than 2 GB, so wanting to fully benefit from the opportunities smartphone we must "arm" go micro SD memory card (up to 32GB). Unfortunately, it is impossible to transfer it to the application. Built-in speaker is on the back of the housing and is quiet. Our decybelomierz registered a maximum value of 78 dB.
Summary / evaluation / review
Worth a look just as a phone, not a smartphone
Prestigio Multiphone DUO 3400 is a phone that should satisfy beginners and less demanding users looking phone for basic use. Its major advantages are low price, portability and robustness. However, treating the equipment as a full-fledged smartphone, be disappointed in almost every way. [Temperatura2 product_id = "20042"] [inne_propozycje product_id = "20042"]
