Insignia 530 LTE is the second after the model of Quantum 450 GOCLEVER phone with support for 4G networks, we had opportunity to review. In this case, we are dealing with the mid-range model, with a large screen sizes. How fell in our tests? See for yourself.
HOUSING / WORKMANSHIP
The dimensions of the phone are large, but not larger than competitive products with a similar diagonal. More than the size of a large mass, however, we feel your device. Fortunately, you can very quickly get used to it.530 LTE – in terms of design – stands out from the other devices GOCLEVER. We are dealing here with a completely different style and color, than the other phones. First of all, your body is predominantly white. Black is the only space around the screen. Back Cover is removable and made of slippery plastic. It occupies the entire surface of the rear of the appliance and overlaps with its upper and lower edge. Under the current fashion, one of the most striking elements is the big holes of the camera (the lens protrudes above the surface of the back cover). Very characteristic is also the side edges. In contrast to the rest of the case, they are made of aluminum and finished in chrome ornaments. All of these elements make the phone looks original and specific at the same time. GOCLEVER-supporters of that minimalism can not appeal to, but certainly there will also be those who appreciate the look of the new Insignia. The build quality of the phone is almost perfect – perfectly fits the design is, does not bend, do not squeak, and the buttons are firmly in place. It is also worth mentioning that the back flap – despite high hardness – it seems to be resistant to scratches. The latter, even if there are not likely to be very noticeable because of the invoice housing. The only thing, which can have some reservations, the display cover – protective layer is a bit too soft, thereby pushing down harder, we see the characteristic discoloration called by us "whirlpool effect". Phone traditionally equipped with two-wire input: 3.5mm audio and micro USB. Both are located on the upper edge of the machine a short distance from each other. In the case of large and bent the headphone jack may result in considerable overlaps with the cable or charger.
The phone has a screen of extraordinary dimensions, such as mid-range device. We are dealing here with IPS panel with a diagonal of 5.3 inches and a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. This is a display of very similar characteristics to that of the Xperia T3. The density of pixels equal to 277 dpi provides sufficient focus. In terms of color reproduction screen is also not lagging behind – the colors are natural (slightly shifted toward the cold), but could be cleaner white (a greyish). Viewing angles, as befits a good IPS panel is almost impeccable.The range of brightness adjustment scale is sufficient. The minimum value is as true as much as 65 cd / m2 (not conducive to reading in the dark), but the maximum reaches 534 cd / m2, so even in strong sunlight the screen is able to illuminate hard enough to get everything that is in it presented was clearly visible. The touch panel works with normal use without any reservations. It is able to handle up to 5 independent points, however, trouble-free operation is possible with a maximum of three. At the same time four fingers moving across the screen, the device crash happens, interpreting 4 points as 3, 5, or sometimes even as a single point of contact. With five fingers at once is even worse.
The phone was armed with a battery of 2450 mAh. As shown by our tests, despite the good performance is a link that does not guarantee in this case impressive performance. With moderate use lasted from morning to evening, and if we darn longer trip out of town, we need to conserve energy. Considerable importance is also the brightness setting – at maximum backlight time on a single charge strongly reduce the terms of our measurements. [Test slug = "battery" virtual = "conversation, movies-wifi-off-3g internet, internet-wifi, communicator-fi, charging-ac" product_id = "20630"] All measurements were registered at the luminance reduced to the level of 120 cd / m2. Charging your phone to complete using the supplied charger takes less than three hours.
13-megapixel camera phone is based on the sensor Exmor Sony IMX135, which is present min. LG G2, G3 and Samsung Galaxy S4. We can count on a very nice pictures, with colors similar to the natural and satisfactory detail. The phone also copes with photos in the light of deviating from the ideal, and the visible noise appear relatively late. It also boasts LED Illuminates LED operation, which has a surprisingly high power. The quality of the video also keeps a good level. We have the ability to record video with a maximum resolution of 1080p and 30 fps. / Sec. The image is detailed and sufficiently liquid.
A sample video
The front camera is capable of performing a 2-megapixel photos and record video only at VGA resolution (16 frames / sec.). Photo quality is mediocre, especially in low light. The video also does not knock your quality, detail and fluidity to the occasional video calling but should suffice. Camera application is the standard interface androidowy without much interference manufacturer. But here we have the ability to adjust the basic parameters such as white balance and ISO. There are also some basic effects – for example, sepia and negative. The whole works very well, and the pictures are done quickly.
The quality of conversations with Insignia 530 LTE is very good. The phone has a sufficiently loud speaker and two microphones, one of which to reduce ambient noise. You can not have any objections to driving comfort conversation using the handset.dialer application is a standard for pure Android KitKat. It is so simple, transparent yet functional.
The heart of the device is MediaTek MT6582 system with Cortex A7 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz and Mali400 GPU-MP2. This system, though not powerful enough for the purposes of this test phone. Labour productivity in the application environment system is satisfactory and we should not feel the power shortage. Helpful is here for sure 2-gigabyte RAM which allows us to use several applications at once without slowing down.The above components are enough to fire it almost all the games from the Play Store. During the tests, checked items such as Asphalt 8, Dead Trigger 2 and Modern Combat 5. All work and it was possible to fully smooth and comfortable total gameplay. The condition was, however, set the graphics details to medium or low. The phone even under heavy load does not heat up unpleasantly and does not slow down significantly after prolonged operation at maximum speed. In terms of compatibility with a variety of video formats the phone falls in line with expectations. Copes with video resolution up to 1080p and DTS audio support.

SOFTWARE / FUNCTIONALITY
The device is running Android version 4.4.2, in almost pure form. The manufacturer, in order to vary the layout decided to slightly change the icons of system applications, more colorful and add a little color wallpapers. On the practical side lived to extensive manual gestures, including a double click to wake the phone. Same interface works very smoothly and steadily. During more than met weekly tests with only a few cases of his nieposłuszności and in any case it concerned the gallery of images that suddenly turn off. GPS module operates without any reservations. Normally catches the signal in less than 20 seconds and is sufficiently accurate to quietly lead the map even walking. In addition to the GPS satellites we have the support of a network connection, or A-GPS. [Test slug = "wifi-phone" axis = "negative" product_id = "20630"] WiFi b / g / n does not disappoint. Receives a signal wherever competitive devices. One of the main advantages of the phone is the ability to connect it to the network 4G. It is responsible for MediaTek MT6290 modem, which according to the manufacturer is able to download data at speeds up to 150 Mbit / s and will ship with 50 Mbit / s. A nice addition is the presence of two slots for SIM cards, which is not obvious in the case of mobile phones with LTE – manufacturers often provide a choice – either LTE or Dual SIM. Cards can only be operated in stand-by mode, or during a call by one, the other is inactive. Both slots support 4G, which is also commendable. The external speaker is positioned in the lower part of the rear flap. Play with a maximum volume of 80 dB, but the sound quality is far from sensational (audio tracks are shallow and suppressed.) 530 LTE Insignia rebuke you also for the quality of sound from the audio output of 3.5 mm. Burdensome is primarily very low maximum volume, which is equal to about half that of the good, musical smartphones. The quality of the sound itself also leaves a lot to be desired, even on very good headphones. The phone supports USB OTG, so you should not have a problem with connecting external input devices and flash memory. The condition of cooperation with others, however, the FAT32 file format. The device does not support any kind of external drives. Available to the manufacturer's left is less than 16 GB of memory in use. It is not a large value, but you can always extend it for up to 128 gigabytes of additional micro SD card (we tested our editorial Kingston 128GB Ultra microSDXC UHS-1 Class10 ). Unfortunately, there is no possibility of transferring data to external storage applications.
SUMMARY / EVALUATION / OPINION
Robust proposal for a fair price
GOCLEVER Insignia 530 LTE device is certainly worthy of attention. Dissents from the manufacturer offers a remarkable appearance and above-average performance, and against competing products in a similar price looks very attractive – both in terms of equipment, as well as quality. 530 LTE is simply a very successful model, which is the only battery imperfections and deficiencies in the field of audio playback.

ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS
Bolo: How to hold on the battery, because with such a capacity, and the display will probably hard feed of these survived a half day without charging. Indeed, as I wrote in the test can be a problem. Of course it all depends on the intensity of use, to withstand a half days is not a problem as we confine ourselves to the bargain of answering SMS and several times to check for mail, but when surfing the Web, playing speaking and there is no chance of withstanding more than from morning to evening. Jkwiatko51: dual sim A fixed version is ndby or active? Standby;) Speci: Request sample images under various lighting. Is the display has some protection from scratches as Gorilla Glass or something like that. Is liquidity after installing multiple applications does not fall? Did not catch after a week of suspension? 1. Yes, Dragontrail. 2. When approx. 25 additional applications have not noticed much of a difference. 3. No;) matik a conversation as with the quality of your speaker and bells because now everything is always more important than quality in mobile conversation and it should be on pierwszynm mioejscu serve as the phone has an external speaker to the conversation is not the loudest, but when set a ring sound should not be a problem with his hearing. Call quality is very good, you can not get to anything.
