Qmobile Noir A12 – Unboxing & 1st Impressions
Qmobile sure knows how to run a good bargain…..I mean their current flagship smartphone the Noir A12, was pricing at above Rs.20,000 and they are running a discount these days in which they are selling it at an amazing Rs.18,500, rumor has it that the price drop is due to them making way for a new flagship phone the A16, we don’t have an exact launch date or any definite info with regards to specs, but the rumor is that there is a chance that the memory will be greater than 512mb.
So we at phonegurureviews.com thought why let this opportunity pass by and got ourselves a Noir A12..
Well there is always that excitement of opening the box as to say so….I guess it’s something that gets inbuilt since childhood starting off with when our parents brought us our first gifts and we would always be flowing with the elements of anticipation, surprise and awe when we finally opened the box and got to hold our new toy…….
What’s In The Box???
Enough with reminiscing on old times now back to our toy…err smartphone, well besides the shiny new black A12, you will find in it a hands-free, charger, data-cable, a 4gb Memory card, user manual, and warranty card.
You can get a good idea of some of the contents in the pictures below:
When you first hold the A12 it gives a premium feel, the material used is good, it’s not your average plastic it has a textured back almost a velvet feel to it. Weight wise its average and doesn’t seem that heavy or bulky, shape wise it is similar to Samsung’s SII, although the size and dimensions are a little different.
The screen is very good, and it should be as it has an AMOLED capacitive touch-screen, good bright colors are displayed, contrast is great as expected, there is minimal reflection and glare, plus since the display tech has low power consumption it should optimize battery life.
