With Apple and Samsung securing the big stage across the world, Pakistan showed a sudden surge of increasing demand for smartphones. Unfortunately, not many people in the nation with stumbling economy can afford to put Galaxy phones in their pockets.
Still it was very fortunate of QMobiles to realize the need and address it. Thanks to this brand, Pakistanis now have the opportunity to wield the best smartphones in half the price. One of the most acclaimed additions to this high-end race is QMobile’s Noir Quatro Z5 which I have reviewed below. So without waiting, let’s see what makes Z5 so good and whether you should buy it or not.
The most important thing that matters to a tech-lover smartphone is its processing. Any smartphone with a quad core processor and a decent ram of 2 GB will be considered as a great phone even with heavy apps installed. Z5 surpasses that greatness with 3G of RAM and a swift 2.5GHz quad core processor. Sony’s Experia Z uses pretty much the same thing so you know what to expect from its processor.
Display, Build Quality and Interface:
Z5’s finishing is elegant and unique. QMobile didn’t go with fancy shenanigans to overemphasize its looks. This smartphone presents a decent but definitely elegant body – sort of like Nexus 5. And it’s not heavy either because 150g weight may not be the lightest in the industry, but there are heavier mobiles out there.
OS is a bit of letdown as you can get other Noir smartphones with newer versions of Android. Android 4.2 in 2015 is just boring.
Since Pakistan has stepped into the 3rd generation of mobile communication, Pakistanis are now looking for 3G-ready devices and it goes without saying that Quatro Z5 did not overlook the demand. For customers using Warid or Zong’s LTE, the 32GB variant of this model also features LTE support.
All of the games that would rock your world in Galaxy will do so in Quatro Z5 as well. Racers, shooters and platformers, this device will play anything.
Quatro comes in two memory sizes: 16 GB and 32 GB. 16 GB may seem unsatisfying if you love filling up the space with apps, music, videos and pictures. But if you don’t have the need for LTE or too much memory, then 16GB will be enough for you and will save you some bucks along the way.
A 16 megapixel primary camera with a great result indoors and outdoors, autofocus and LED flash, what else is there? If you’re on the selfie side, its front camera with 8MP output will be more than enough for you. Plus, with such a great result, you can enjoy the chat with your sibling or friend who’s online from the other end of the globe.
Z5’s battery is going to last a couple of days only with normal usage. Definitely not bad considering the full HD screen and all but it could have been better.
If you love a fast processor with tons of RAM to back you up, all at a lesser price, this is the mobile you need but if memory space and LTE connectivity is also a part of the deal, you have better options – even within QMobile domain.
If you can compromise on the storage and user interface then we bet you cannot find any better device in this price range.
