MyPhone Q-Smart Black Edition is a smartphone from Biedronka, which can be yours for 299 zlotys. We're checking to see if it's worth buying for that little amount.
A few days ago, the smartphone myPhone Q-Smart Black Edition, priced at 299 gold, arrived in Biedronka. The price of this model suggests that this is an offer for the less demanding customers who need a phone with smartphone features. We have decided to see what the Q-Smart Black Edition can do and whether it is worth buying.
Housing and appearance
Right from the start I have to admit that myPhone Q-Smart Black Edition is a really nice smartphone . I may even risk the statement that in terms of presentation it has little competition among similarly priced devices.Of course there is nothing to count on the minimum frame around the screen or 18: 9 aspect ratio, so myPhone Q-Smart Black Edition looks quite classy but elegant . Front is primarily a 5-inch screen, under which we find touch-sensitive Android function keys. They are not illuminated, which may interfere but does not have to. Over the display is the speaker, camera and myPhone logo. The whole is protected from plastic damage, not glass. The phone's on / off key and the volume buttons hit the right side of the device. I rate them positively because they are rigidly embedded in the housing, and their work does not raise any objections. The 3.5mm jack connector has been implemented at the top edge with the microUSB port. This is not a good place to put it, because when charging the cable makes it difficult to use smartphones. A big surprise is the material from which the majority of the phone's flap was made. We have to deal with metal , which in cheap smartphones is not standard and probably never will, so it should be. Of course, this is not the highest flight aluminum, but the touch does not look like cheap cans, as you probably suspected most of you 🙂 What is important, the flap can be removed, thus gaining access to the battery. On his back Smart Q-BE see the manufacturer's logo, name, phone, camera and gently protruding antenna strips, separating the metal from the plastic inserts.
The designers of the tested smartphone behaved cautiously and opted for the best diagonal, so myPhone Q-Smart Black Edition offers a 5-inch display . Unfortunately, it presents low resolution content of 854×480, so the picture's focus is insufficient . Even a less skilled eye should not have a problem seeing single pixels. In myPhone and in the competition we will find some phones that are little more expensive and offer HD diodes, so myPhone Q-Smart Black Edition is poorly placed here. [Test slug = "battery-screen" virtual = "TEST_JASNOSC_AKU" order = "desc" selected = "22338" type = "single" product_id = "22128,22214, 22192,22162,22138,22140,22008,22000,21800,21470,22228,22232,21780,22262,22322,22338 "] [/ wptab] [wptab style =" 4 "title =" Minimum brightness "] [test slug = "Battery-screen" virtual = "TEST_JASNOSC_AKU_MIN" order = "asc" selected = "22338" type = "single" product_id = "22128,22214,22192,22162,22138,22140,22008,22000,21800,21470,22228 22232,21780,22262,22322,22338 "] [/ wptab] [wptab_end] The IPS matrix used offers good angles of view and correct contrast. When it comes to maximum brightness, our calibrator pointed to 347 cd / m2, so visibility in really strong sun is not the best, but under other conditions it should be sufficient. I was more irritated by the high minimum brightness (28 cd / m2), through which you can not comfortably view content in a dark room or at night. For comfort we get a light sensor, and this is not so obvious on smartphones of this price class. I have no objections to the operation of the touch panel, but it is worth remembering that it is only two points.The weak side of the Q-Smart screen is hues, because they lack saturation , which makes them look faded. The heart of the phone is unfortunately none of MediaTek's chips, so we will not find here MiraVision technology, which could help in this situation.
MyPhone Q-Smart Black Edition comes with two cameras. The main camera has 5 megapixels , though it can do interpolated images with an 8 megapixel resolution; It is supported by a single, medium effective LED. The front camera has 2 megapixels.
Camera software is not the default Android app I hate, which I count on a small splash. But I can not say that the prepared sneak stole my heart because it has two annoying features: the settings menu does not rotate with the device, and access to filters and modes can only be achieved by dragging your finger at the bottom of the screen, you can not notice and live in The conviction that there are no modes. Positively surprised by this is the presence of manual mode. It is truncated to a few functions, but it is still a possibility in this class of smartphones.

Acceptable shots can only be obtained under ideal lighting conditions when the sun is neither too much nor too little. This is best suited for rooms with large windows, because they allow the optimum amount of light. In other cases the photos are weak or tragic, which you can see yourself by enlarging the sample photos. For sensible photos in the dark forget it. Movies will be shot in maximum HD resolution at 22 fps. Honestly, I can hardly tell what quality these clips are, you just have to see. A complete puzzle for me is the sense of implementation of the front camera. I realize that in these days it must be on board every smartphone, but this one in Q-Smarta BE is just useless and how could it not be for me.
While CPUs used in flagship smartphones for $ 3,000 offer several years of power, phones that cost around $ 300 a month often have archaic units that have a lot of problems with delivering sensible performance right now. No exception is myPhone Q-Smart Black Edition, because it works in the Spreadtrum SC7731C (4xCortex-A7, 1.2GHz), Mali-400 graphics and 1GB of RAM. This is a very basic set, archaic, which confirms our tests: [test slug = "pcmark-android" order = "desc" selected = "22338" virtual = "pcmark -android-work "type =" single "product_id =" 22128,22214,22192,22162,22138,22140,22008,22000,21800,21470,22228,22232,22012,21780,22262,22322,22338 "] [ Wptab style = "4" title = "AnTuTu"] [test slug = "android-antutu-6" order = "desc" selected = "22338" virtual = "antutu-total-6" type = "single" Product_id = "22128,22214,22192,22162,22138,22140,22008,22000,21800,21470,22228,22232,22012,21780,22262,22322,22338"] [/ wptab] [wptab style = "4" title = "3dMark"] [test slug = "3dmark" order = "desc" selected = "22338" virtual = "3dmark-ice-storm-unlimited-total" type = "single" product_id = "22128,22214,22192,22162 T-Rex "] [slug test], [slate test], 22138,22140,22008,22000,21800,21470,22228,22232,22012,21780,22262,22322,22338"] [/ wptab] = "Gfxbench-fps" order = "desc" selected = "22338" type = "single" virtual = "t-rex-3-onscreen" product_id = "22128 [/ Wptab] [wptab_end] Despite construction similar to MediaTek MT6580 (Manta Forto 1) Or Snapdragona 410 (Asus ZenFone Live), the SC7731C Spreadtrum from Q-Smarta is weaker and less noticeable. Poor test results translate into practice, because this device works decently only when we use basic, basic tasks such as talking, writing messages or browsing the web. For the latter, I recommend some lightweight browser, because Chrome unfortunately works poorly. The same can be said of full versions of Facebook or Messenger, so I recommend the light version of these programs. MyPhone Q-Smart Black Edition also has occasional stability issues – once I turned off AnTuTu, and another time I could not stop recording video. Work culture is not the strength of this equipment . The layout used was presented in 2012, and this speaks for itself. In addition, it is available in a single-core version with low maximum clocking, so you have to forget about advanced graphical games. The rest are firing quite slowly, but they look acceptable. However, I do not guarantee that all will work with satisfactory liquidity.
MyPhone Q-Smart Black Edition comes with a single multimedia speaker located on the rear panel. It is surprisingly good . True, the color of the sound is not very clear, but the maximum volume allows for quite pleasant consumption of content and hassle-free hearing of incoming messages or calls. The quality of the call itself is decent and only a loud environment can interfere with the reception of the caller.Even the cheapest myPhone smartphones offer Dual SIM and Q-Smart Black Edition is no exception here. This option is available in standby mode. The manufacturer has released a separate slot for the memory card (up to 32GB, although 64GB also worked for me). This is the only option to expand the file space, because there is no support for any OTG accessories. It's a pity, because the memory has a capacity of only 8GB, of which about 4.5GB we can actually use. Communication resources are an absolute minimum. On board there is unfortunately no LTE , and Wi-Fi is single-band. I did not notice that it had problems with the operation. Bluetooth is here in version 4.0. The miracle in the form of NFC is not there, but for consolation we get FM Radio and a good working GPS. Maybe it is not perfect and sometimes it takes time and internet support, but it works, as I could not say for the equally cheap Fun 5.
MyPhone Q-Smart Black Edition works under Android 7.0 Nougat , which is a positive surprise. The manufacturer also boasts of a Google certificate, which in the future can be crucial for users. [Gallery ids = "723118,723120,723124,723126,723128,7231230,723132,723134,723136,723138,723140,723142,723144,723148,723152"] Nougat has been slightly modified by the manufacturer. Added several apps related to Biedronka and other myPhone partners and a full suite of Google programs. Software add-ons are little and honestly not worth mentioning about them. In the interface you will find some shortcomings in the translation (example on the dump), but they are not particularly irritating.
For unknown reasons, myPhone was very fond of 2000 mAh batteries, because Q-Smart Black Edition is another product of this company with such a link. This looks like its performance test synthesis: [wptab style = "4" title = "Normal use"] [test slug = "battery" order = "desc" selected = "22338" virtual = "pcmark-work" type = "single" Product_id = "22128,22214,22192,22162,22138,22140,22008,22000,21800,22228,22232,22262,22322,22338"] [/ wptab] [wptab style = "4" title = "Games"] [ Test slug = "battery" order = "desc" selected = "22338" virtual = "battery-trex" type = "single" product_id = "22214,22154,22002,21966,21968,21772,21752,21910,22228,22232 [Wptab style = "4" title = "charging time"] [test slug = "battery" virtual = "charging-ac" order = "desc" selected = "22338" Type = "single" product_id = "22214,22154,22002,21966,21968,21630,21772,21752,2191221910,22228,22232,22262,22322,22338"] [/ wptab] [wptab_end]myPhone Q- Smart Black Edition will need daily connection to the charger if you use it like a smartphone, taking pictures, browsing the web, or using multiple applications, in The social ones. When you treat it like a phone, it can last up to three days. The tragedy is gone, but myPhone Q-Smart Black Edition is not designed for long-distance work. The small capacity of the cell is one, and the second charge time. The latest Q-Smart needs about 2h to make the battery pointer drop to 100%. It's definitely too long, but nothing will help. For a small plus the possibility of a free replacement of the link to the new, which is a much faster operation than the recharging of this exhausted.
Summary and evaluation
By buying a smartphone for $ 300, it's hard to count on fireworks, myPhone Q-Smart Black Edition is no exception. This is a basic model with basic equipment and should be treated as a phone with smartphone functionality . MyPhone Q-Smart Black Edition has some positive features. The most important of them is good presentation and good workmanship . On the plus side you can also include the presence of a light sensor, free access to the battery, simple interface support for Dual SIM and satisfactory quality of telephone calls. It is also worth to appreciate Android 7.0 Nougat and Google certification. The low price also means a few shortcomings and shortcomings. The biggest ones are low productivity and not satisfactory working culture and a weak screen. The bad camera is, and the video quality and selfie picture camera do not even mention it. I can hardly recommend myPhone Q-Smart Black Edition if it is to be your primary smartphone. In this case, better to pay even to the least expensive myPhone Prime Plus, which is better in every field. However, if myPhone Q-Smart Black Edition is to be an alternative, temporary replacement or hardware just in case, then you can consider buying it , although it will not be the best 3 shoe in your life.[temperature2 product_id = "22338"]
