NavRoad Nexo Smart is a smartphone for your child, you've never seen – the younger the user gives joy to the media, and the parent full control over what happens to his comfort.
The decision about buying your parent for a child may be dictated by the desire to fulfill the wishes of a child about to have its first own smartphone or the need for peace of mind assurance that we will always be in touch with our comfort. We must admit, however, that the child is a specific recipient because it has its own requirements: it can not get your expensive, boring or a little tough. How in such a context is doing NavRoad Nexo Smart, the first phone for a child that ever I test?
Our video review
Design and workmanship
What I like best in this model? The fact that the manufacturer is not trying to force embellish shape and color of the casing, which teaches the child that it is not dealing with a toy, and a full-fledged phone. This does not mean, however, that the phone must be black and ugly. Nexo Smarty has a colorful elements in the form of a rear flap and running around the screen, a rubber sheath to safeguard the screen from breaking out if the phone fell.Because it's one thing you need to bear in mind – children tend to be clumsy and it happens to them frequently turn over or something drop. Okay so that all Nexo NavRoad housing Smarty plastic cover – the phone is, therefore, both durable (so the phone can withstand the fall) and is not heavy, despite the large size battery (1700 mAh). I only have a small fear of phone dimensions that seem a little too big for a child handle 137 mm high and 70 mm wide, it's not so little. In this case fit the 4.5-inch IPS screen which gives a nice looking and colorful image of not very high resolution 854 by 480 pixels. Probably if it was a phone call for me, I would have a problem with that, but the child should do just fine. But mostly we buy such a phone for communication, although this screen are encouraged to use the media and those missing in NavRoad Nexo Smarty. In addition to naturally find additional multimedia speaker on the rear wall, while on the upper edge of the side placed microUSB port and audio output. Under the removable rear flap also find a slot for a microSD card and SIM card. The phone has two cameras – a front for video calls and a rear, where the added flash.
KidsOS – have not yet gone, and it should be
I think that's what software is strongest point of this phone. Android system installed here, which expanded by KidsOS program runs by default when the first switch on the phone. This colorful program of performing an overlay system / launcher, ie. Replaces the standard system interface their own. From a child's perspective KidsOS offers access to three basic functions: to communicate, fun and personalization of the system. Start-up screen has a lower beam whose main element is an icon in the shape of a circle to which the child can insert your photo Self-portrait; to the left is the SOS button that dials emergency contact; on the right icon to perform voice calls.After selecting the wheel of his own likeness child will be able to manage communication modules – Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G and mute ringtones and change phone settings and change the wallpaper, ringtone and preview the built-in memory consumption. Here is a Parental Control button – the command center, which is the biggest advantage of this phone. From the perspective of a parent because, KidsOS offers the possibility of permanent custody and control of how your child will use the NavRoad Nexo Smarty, where he moves with this phone and whether it is safe. This is achieved by a whole range of additional functions. With some meet for the first time, for example. Geolocation – based on a GPS transmitter, we can locate the whereabouts of our child (the refresh rate is 5 minutes) and geofencing – the ability to establish a safe zone map for the child; if he leaves, we get a special message. It is also a must, although rare – a panel Parental Control, in which we take control over what applications your child can run, how much time they spend (control applications), who will be able to connect (control contacts), and which Websites will benefit (secure Internet). In each of these options is a switch that allows use the phone without any rigor on our part. That's what I like most: we can determine how much time your child spends on the phone and set a secure white list of Web pages. I happen to work in the school library, where scores of kids spends time on the computer playing games and browsing the web page suspicious content. Besides, we must remember that the phone will become a companion nieodłączonym child – should control the programs available to its user distraction in the classroom. Therefore, KidsOS lets you share a child or block specific applications in real time and remotely lock your phone when it is lost or stolen. Then we make sure that nobody steals personal information of the child or his parents or non-studded high bill, if the number is on subscription.
To me, NavRoad Nexo Smarty is one of the best phones that you can buy a child, because not only fulfill the dream of our kids, but they learn from this purchase their own benefits. It's not just about the ability to control how your child will use the phone. The idea is that NavRoad uses a smartphone capabilities – Wi-Fi, GPS and Android to allow parents to watch over whether their child is whole and safe. Without the need for constant calling and writing SMS.
