Not a bad screen, nice body and most importantly, low price – these are the main strengths of the child's latest NavRoad, Handy Nexo model.
At first glance, it looks Handy Nexo chic and modern, but rather presents a minimalist approach to design. The thickness of only 8 mm and a silver frame around the housing give the illusion of associating with an expensive device. The spell is broken, when we take the phone in your hand. Silver lacquer only imitates metal, printed on his back can be easily rubbed off key or even a fingernail, and the stiffness of the device after a little more than a week of tests was lost – the housing began to creak and crackle under pressure. Front phone is primarily a screen size of 4.7 "and a touch-sensitive buttons. Unfortunately, they are not backlit, so you can take a moment to get used to it. Panel extends slightly over the face of the enclosure – to protect it from damage, glued to the glass protective film. This is not the best solution, because the cover is very delicate, and this easily collects dirt and dust from the hand. It must also be changed from time to time to avoid scratching the correct screen.The rear flap and sides is the Achilles heel of the device. Plecki made of cheap, soft and susceptible to scratching plastic. Wink camera protrudes from the housing, making it difficult to use the phone as he lies on the desk, not to mention the risk of damaging or scratching the lens itself. The manufacturer has put on a project in which the sides of the phone imitate the use of aluminum, also met with the opinions of the phone to some extent refers to the style of the iPhone. Unfortunately, Handy Apple product has nothing to do – the frame is plastic paint in addition to which it is covered with a bit carelessly applied (to the naked eye can see flaws and imperfections). At the top of the chassis has micro USB connector and 3.5mm mini jack. On the sides you will find buttons responsible for waking up and adjust the volume. It is worth mentioning at the end of the phone is still one minor drawback that holders will experience large hands. SIM card slot is located in a very uncomfortable place, so you do not need any skill and composure to put the card in place.
display is strength Handy model. The manufacturer did not spare specifically for this component and, in my view, hit the jackpot in the context of value for money. You can count on the 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels (234ppi). Positive surprises use pretty good quality matrix made with IPS technology that copes well with mapping display colors (although there is a shift towards the cool colors), while maintaining a relatively wide viewing angles (note degradation can be a delicate pale colors and black when changing perspective) . Panel detects up to 5 points touch, and it's fine. Unfortunately, when you press a little harder on the screen, you'll see "whirlpool effect". Adjust the brightness is at an average level, but pleasantly surprising level until the maximum illumination ratio 551 cd / m2 (this value far easier to use the device, even in bright sunlight). On the downside, you have to save a minimum luminance of 69 cd / m2 – reading or writing text messages at night will not be especially comfortable, as well as use the phone as a navigation when planning a night journey.
The small thickness of the casing and low price phone had to reflect on the capacity of the battery. Contrary to appearances, theoretically tiny cell with a capacity of only 1700 mAh is doing extremely properly. Handy Nexo Obviously not survive a few days of operation on a single charge, but in daily use never let me down – reach the end of the day with a small supply of energy. The synthetic tests (measurements were recorded at 120 cd / m2), so it was no longer pink … [test slug = "battery" virtual = "conversation, video-wifi-off-3g internet, internet-wifi, communicator-wifi , charging-ac "product_id =" 20524 "] Phone is dedicated drivers, among others – is to serve as a handy navigation. That's why we decided to carry out an additional test battery using the built-in GPS and navigation offline. In such a scenario, while traveling Handy stand just over four and a half hours (270 minutes).
Since NavRoad designers spent some of the money for the use of IPS screen, had to save on something else. In the end, affected the quality of the camera on your phone. The furnishings came model based on a matrix which is characterized by a resolution of 5 megapixels, recording images at a resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels. Image quality is average at best – in good light, images are sharp and the colors vivid and saturated, respectively. When the light is not too much, the phone tries to compensate by raising the ISO, which quickly results in the emergence of digital noise. Small LED Illuminates will not help us in the fight against this problem.
Video recorded via Handy fall far short of phenomenal quality – retain for a smooth 30 fps. / S at a resolution of 1920 x 1088 pixels. The front camera can no longer boast such good results and recorded at a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels at 19 fps. / Sec. camera application has nothing special. Using a minimalist interface, we can change the basic parameters, such as ISO, white balance, contrast, sharpness, etc. On the plus side, you can include a very workable panoramic shooting mode.
I thought in terms of call quality problems with Handy I will not complain. To my surprise, it did not happen. Very irritating quiet speaker – despite the fact that the volume of calls is set to the maximum level, a lot of times I did not catch what the other person just wanted to convey. Small microphone hidden in the bottom of the case is also not working properly. Most of the people I spoke with complained of blurred and soft voice. The device operates in the standard Dual-SIM – both cards can make calls, but only one of them is capable of handling the internet via 3G.
Nexo Navroad Handy phone is not very efficient. There is no high-end processor is Mediatek MT6582 for it (4 cores, each clocked at 1.3 GHz) with Mali 400 MP, supported by 1GB of RAM. Low price entailed the use of cheaper components, this does not mean that the phone is weak. Used a set of components is not beating records in benchmarks, but enough for daily operation of the device. You deplore the lack of LTE device – despite the use of the browser is satisfying and does not cause any problems.Handy unlikely to appeal to avid gamers – yes, productions likes of Real Racing 3 and Dead Trigger 2 work, but at lower graphics settings. Sometimes when you play can be seen declines in liquidity, in addition to being laden mobile processor heats up to such an extent that, due to the hot housing further play is unpleasant. Handy also does not surprise us in terms of video playback – not cope with the material at a higher resolution, than Full HD, also does not support DTS and AC3.

Handy Nexo is running Android 4.4.2 Kit-Kat in a "clean" version, the whole works stably and smoothly. The phone does not tend to hang out, but from time to time happened to him moments in which he had to devote more time to open one of the applications. No additional graphic overlay makes the interface looks nice and tidy. Smartphone but not quite well in the field of wireless communication (standard WiFi b / g / n) – Nexo Handy establish a stable connection to the router, provided that the latter is not far away. When on the road condition some thicker walls, there is no convenient serfowaniu the Web. [Test slug = "wifi-phone" axis = "negative" product_id = "20524"] To my surprise, the GPS in the phone does best. I used it during several trips by car and under such conditions to work accurately enough to help me. A lot of miserable equipment fell while walking – Handy had a huge problem with that, to determine where you are currently and how quickly I find I go, moreover, clearly shown by the record.Dual-SIM Handy operates in stand-by mode. Both cards are armed and can make the connection (not at once). Only one of the cards may be responsible for the 3G Internet service. For example, when we talk through the card number. 1, we can use the internet on the no. 2 and vice versa. For your convenience, you can set a default tab from making calls or writing text messages, nothing stands in the way of it to manually select the card before the start of the call. Of course, the phone switches to the appropriate sim when someone would call us. Scorch can no support OTG. There is no way to connect a mouse, external drive, or even an ordinary USB drive. All data must be stored in the device memory or microSD card phone has 8 GB of built-in memory – if that was not enough, the memory can be expanded via microSD card – Handy handled even our editorial 128-gigabyte card Kingston Ultra microSDXC UHS-1 Class10 . The smartphone carries about 70% of the data on external storage applications, including memory rather not miss. Handy equipped with a loud speaker that in our tests received a score of 87 dB. The music player allows you to adjust the sound effects to your preference. The unit is clean, even at maximum volume did not hear any noise and interference. Sound quality can not be compared to high-end devices – their background, Handy falls on average. As I mentioned earlier, Nexo Handy is directed to car drivers, and the manufacturer with the device gives some useful applications for motorists. The first is the DailyRoads Voyager – clever Java applet that allows us to record our entire trip (as in Webcamming cars), which can be set in such a way as to turn on automatically when you turn the key in the ignition. Of course, the phone must be connected to the car charger. Another useful application is MapFactor Navigator Free – an alternative to photo navigation from Google. It is more useful – warns when cross the speed limit, informed about the situation on the road, and most importantly, can work in offline mode when shall drag the map of the country. The last of the interesting applications is well known Yanosik driver. Informs us of all speed cameras in the area, accidents, detours and police patrols.
Summary and evaluation
Do not beat around the bush – Nexo NavRoad Handy is a good position in the money. For 399 zł get quite efficient, well-designed smartphone with IPS screen. In addition, the device get some useful applications that will be useful not only to drivers.but the phone has a weaker hand – problems with WiFi and GPS, and susceptibility to scratches housing may scare away potential customers. Summing up all the pros and cons will not lie, however, wrote that Nexo Handy is one of the best phones in its price category.
