Among the cheap mobile rarely appears in the model as pretty as myPhone Artis. Although inexpensive, Artis was equipped with a 5.5-inch screen and LTE connectivity. We checked how it performs in everyday use.
Housing and workmanship
The price criterion shall prevail when buying the phone budget – that's clear. But always, regardless of whether we want to spend 250 or 2500 zlotys, a new phone that Extract shortly after coming to the house must please the eye and bring the joy of purchase. Therefore, more and more often on the horizon they appear affordable phones whose design is inspired prettier and often much more expensive counterparts.To seek an analogy between MyPhone Artis and the iPhone does not require falcon eye or skilled analytical abilities, but do not get me wrong – I do not consider that it was necessary to criticize the manufacturer for borrowing some solutions from Apple. After all, the end result counts, which in this case is really beneficial. The phone is really nice. The whole area of the front panel cover glass, contoured edges giving a glass effect 2.5D, which in recent times has become very fashionable. Deep black merges with the screen, when it is blank, so that the device has something to do with the upper class. The impression compounded by a very thin bezel running around the display and silver colored back panel (made of plastic with a slightly rough texture). Although this last element is removable, the structure was assembled solidly enough to avoid any creaking or looseness. All is well connected with each other, so that the overall quality can not complain. Despite the good performance, not a few mishaps avoided. First of all, the main camera protrudes beyond the housing, which means that during normal use of the phone is vulnerable to scratch. It is upon him the weight of the device when we put the smartphone on the table. The second thing is the manufacturer's logo Fixed in a bottom of the phone. Not really fits the minimalist and raw design. A greater sense of taste was shown during the work on the deployment of additional elements. Physical buttons are placed on the left side, microUSB port and audio output at the top and at the bottom there was only a microphone to talk. Below you will find the phone screen are three touch-sensitive buttons, which place marked by subtle dots. This creates a very nice composition. Coherent and functional. myPhone ARTIS very well in the hand and despite a 5.5-inch screen is not big. Taking as reference the models with a screen of the same diagonal, myPhone ARTIS measuring 152 mm high and 77 mm wide phabletowy seems to reconcile the nature of the dimensions of the standard smartphone. For comparison, Moto X Play (unrivaled in terms of ergonomics) is only 4 mm shorter and only 2 mm narrower, iPhone 6s Plus is in turn much less handy than Artis. The phone is also noticeably lighter than these models, which makes it really convenient in everyday use. Briefly assessing if I were choosing the phone to rely on the same design of the two – myPhone'a Artis, and such. Honora 4x (also an attractive price) would choose myPhone'a. It seems to me that it was really successful project.
Although in the case phabletów and myPhone Artis is undeniably one of them, often moves in the issue of convenience, the large size of the screen drowns out any arguments not in favor of this type of equipment. Unfortunately, 5.5-inch IPS panel mounted in myPhonie Artis does not show fully why. The manufacturer is not poszalał with a resolution – 1280 by 720 pixels gives density at 267 ppi. With such a diagonal looks best Full HD, because then the picture is more clear and prettier look to the media – and yet this created phablety. In addition to the relatively low density of pixels, I noticed, too, that used the IPS matrix is not a top-flight. You can see the delicate color distortion when looking at the screen at an angle – those which are not noticed by testing other budget models. They are not overly large deviations, but more trained eye will notice these defects.calibrator measurements indicated a 330 cd / m2 at the highest brightness of the screen, which should allow the preservation of a satisfactory readability on cloudy days – in strong sunlight may, however, be requested to hand over its exposure screen.
The model received the battery capacity. 2600 mAh – it is little, if we take into account not only the diagonal of the screen, but also to equip phabletu. Typically, built-in battery capacity in this type of equipment really is coming to 3000 mAh, whereas here deficiencies are affecting the waveforms that the phone offers on a single charge. In the test performed after the reduced screen brightness to 120 cd / m2 enough energy for approx. 5 hours. surfing the Internet (using both mobile data and Wi-Fi module) and approx. 6 hours. Continuous watching movies in flight mode. Again, let us refer to the competition. 4x honor in the corresponding test scored significantly higher scores, in addition to having energy-saving profiles. [test slug = "accumulator" virtual = "conversation, video-wifi-off 3g internet, internet-wifi, PCMark-work, loading-ac" product_id = "21,298.20802"] In everyday use battery myPhone'a Artis should last for at least 1 – 1.5 days of normal use, albeit with more demanding this time may be shortened. Admittedly, the battery is not the forte of this model. And should be, because it is another advantage zgnieżdżony DNA phabletów.
come to the first zagwozdki – the camera, the resolution indicated by the program to take pictures and AIDA64 is inconsistent with the official specification provided by the manufacturer. Theoretically we have to deal with an 8-megapixel camera, while the software can recognize 13-megapixel system. And yet we find in the kit illuminate the LED. I have already mentioned the camera application, but it is nothing other than stockowym Android software capabilities with fine shooting settings. We can change the resolution, run the HDR mode and decide on the quality of photos and videos. We can also control the white balance, etc., But the sample pictures show that it does not really affect the appearance of the photographs.
The quality of images is good, albeit with a smaller amount of ambient light photos are slightly blurred image, and the amount of detail is small. Colors look good, but they are not as flattering as the more expensive models. We know that we can not expect too much, because phone price is not high.
Movies recorded phone look good, because they are sufficiently liquid (720p, 30 frames / sec.), But the image is not fully stable. Automatic properly adjusts the exposure while maintaining good visibility of all elements contained in the recorded plan.
At the front mounted 2-megapixel camera, which is doing well, as long as all around us is enough light. When you are in a darkened room, machine sets a longer exposure time resulting in the fact that the photos are blurry. If anyone would like to use the camera after dark, then there may be big problems with making nice-looking frame.
Equipment and performance
The quality of voice chat
The quality of calls made via phone can be described as good. The sound emitted by a dedicated speaker was clean enough and loud, and built-in microphone is sensitive enough that my interlocutors did not complain about problems with audibility my voice.Composing text messages is done using the keyboard Stock Android, and because it is displayed on a large screen, very comfortable with its use. Similarly, the dialer, but we must prepare for the fact that it will be easier to enter a number or text using both hands.
The phone has two slots for SIM cards – one standard size and the other on the micro-SIM card. The phone has no problems with logging on to the network Aero2, and if you would like to use two numbers to call and write the message, the phone allows you to assign a specific function within the tab, or choose different each time. Important: we are dealing here with the function Dual-SIM standby – when we call a single number, the other is inactive.
The phone has a mono speaker located on the rear panel in the lower part. So when we put the smartphone on a table or couch, range will be suppressed. The mere sound quality is poor. There is a lack of bass and treble prevail, which often reached for the phone.
Wi-Fi and GPS
Built-in Wi-Fi module is compatible with 802.1 b / g / n operates in one respect. During testing, the device does not encountered any major problems with the operation of this system, but studying the sensitivity of the test showed that when the phone is on a different floor than the router, the network connection may be broken. [test slug = "wifi-phone" axis = "negative" product_id = "21298"] Built-in GPS module without power from the mobile network handles an average. Faithfulness with which tracks the phone's location below illustrates the included picture. You can see that your phone can track deviates from that actually went through.
Built-in Memory, OTG miracast
The phone has 8 GB of built-in memory – not much, they admit, but we can install a microSD memory card (slot is located under the removable lid, but does not require removing the battery). The phone has handled the card capacity. 64 GB, and the default settings you will find the option allocation application, which allows larger programs are installed directly on the external media. This eliminates any problems with internal memory. The model supports OTG accessories – mouse, external hard drive with its own power supply, USB Key HUB-y (active and passive). There may be problems with the service the external drive without their own power supply and storage media formatted with the NTFS file system. You will not find a function responsible for streaming video to an external display using technology miracast.
Performance and functionality
Manufacturer reached 6735P MediaTek processor, 64-bit unit based on the new architecture ARMv8a with a 4-core processor clocked at 1 GHz single-core graphics chip Mali-T720 and the main memory capacity. 1 GB. As for the budget model costing approx. 550 zlotys such a combination is acceptable, although it lacks a little more RAM. In everyday use can be observed slowdown in the liquidity of the system, and the applications take longer to load. The phone cope with multiple programs open in the background, but is not a speed demon. When surfing the net liquidity scroll through the pages is put to the test, and run demanding games is done with varying degrees of success. Synthetic test results did not bring any surprises – the model is the weakest of the group recently tested by us phabletów budgetary and recorded lower results than based on the same system Cubot H1. Note the comparison of results with AnTuTu, where Artis won 8 thousand. points less than Cubot and almost three times less than 4x Honor. [wptab style = "4" title = "AnTuTu"] [test slug = "android-antutu" product_id = "21264,21194,20398,20802,21298"] [/ wptab] [wptab style = "4" title = " GFXBench "] [test slug =" gfxbench-fps "virtual =" t-rex-3-offscreen, t-rex-3-onscreen, manhattan-3-offscreen, manhattan-3-onscreen "product_id =" 21,264.21194, 20398,20802,21298 "] [/ wptab] [wptab style =" 4 "title =" PC Mark Android "] [test slug =" PCMark-android "product_id =" 21264,21194,20398,20802,21298 "] [ / wptab] [wptab style = "4" title = "3DMark: Unlimited"] [test slug = "3dmark" virtual="3dmark-ice-storm-unlimited-total,3dmark-ice-storm-unlimited-graphics,3dmark-ice-storm-unlimited-physics" product_id = "21264,21194,20398,20802,21298"] [/ wptab] [wptab_end] These notes make it clear – myPhone model Artis is not strictly dedicated to fans of mobile games, but that does not mean you can not handle yourself with a seating titles available on Google Play. I ran Mortal Kombat X and here you can see significant decreases in the amount of FPS resulting in a lack of smooth gameplay. Artwork itself is simplified, as in Dead Trigger 2 and Real Boxing 2 Creed. The system is not for the problems with video playback and can handle most formats available. I checked several different files and only 4K movies not reproduce themselves. Video in Full HD (MKV, 1080p h264, 40Mbps) works very smoothly, which is surprising, because with such a file is not coped example. Elephone P8000, which falls in synthetic tests a lot better than Artis. MediaTek mounted system has no problems with the temperature of work, so most of the time your body retains the right temperature. The processor at a higher load starts to generate some heat (approx. 36 deg. C), but does not result in the heating of the housing – typically plecków temperature does not exceed 30 deg. C in the vicinity of the main camera and 27 deg. C below. [temperatura_obudowa product_id = "21298"] The phone runs on Android Lollipop, which the manufacturer does not modify any overlay. So you get a clean operating system that has little additional functions, such as. The purification of memory found in the list view of recently opened applications and procedures for protecting against accidental connecting to the phone when it is in your pocket.Manufacturer gives us the opportunity to register with the Premium service, through which we get information about updates, discounts on accessories and products as well as the opportunity to participate in competitions. The memory is also some additional programs, but they are free items from Google Play, so it is no treat for lurking on occasions.
Summary review and evaluation
Phone myPhone is primarily Artis proposal is addressed to aesthetes, because the model is distinguished by a nice design and very good quality. In my opinion this is one of the most beautiful models in the budgetary sector and myPhone'owi are for this tribute. The large screen allows for comfortable surfing the web and watching movies encourages, but a small performance very much understates the competitive model. Synthetic tests are one thing, because despite all the phone copes with games, but the culture of the system is quite average. There is also what commend the camera, because the sample photos are of average quality. To whom, then it is directed phone? Persons wishing to see whether the phone with a big screen is something for them, but if they have a familiarity with smartphones, I advise you reach for a more efficient model.[temperatura2 product_id = "21298 [inne_propozycje product_id =" 21298 "]
