What’s In The box?
The A78 comes in a pretty standard Gfive packing it has the following:
– Charger with local adaptor so you can use it in the local power sockets
– USB Cable
– Stereo Headphones (Handsfree)
– Warranty Card
– User’s Manual
The Gfive Ferrari A78 as can be guessed from its name comes in a bright sporty color mainly red, but the good part is we had a chance to do the review on the black A78. One thing that is worth mentioning if the device in red denotes a person’s sporty style the one in black definitely gives an executive look which is also quite stylish. The material is used is good albeit it is plastic it gives a durable feel and unlike some devices, the good thing about this smartphone is that it does not leave any fingerprint marks on the back.
The display technology is IPS so that means you should get good visibility at a varying degree of angles as compared to regular LCDs which give optimum displays only when you are looking straight at it with a little variation.
The screen is scratch resistant, not like Gorilla glass but still it should protect the display from minor scratches and falls.
It has an 8Mpixel back cam and VGA front cam, a 1450mAh battery, which allows for decent operation time and sufficient standby time.
