    So its mean G9 beats A20.

    • Omair Ahmed says:

      G9 is much better . but only problem mass is facing is its too large to carry…One can not put it in pocket..much bigger than pocket..so it can not be classified as mobile..and due to small screen its neither tablet..
      Here mobile means “Able to move or be moved freely or easily.”

  2. Gulraiz says:

    This phone doesn’t look impressive.Qmobile seem to be in a chaos after the launch of gfive’s g9 phone.They were not expecting that some other local company could launch a quadcore phone in pakistan.G9 seems a way better phone than this one.What do you think usman bhai?

    • Salis Salman says:

      GFive is based in China and they make their own phones. Whereas QMobile is a local company that gets phones from China and other different countries (Phillipines, France etc.) and rebrand them. It is a very different story. I was pretty amazed with GFive’s support like cloud storage etc. This shows that GFive cares about their customers since they don’t want to ruin their image in consumer market. Whereas QMobile doesn’t care at all and their customer service is pathetic. But still they are popular because they have a wide selection of phones. I am not saying the QMobile sucks but this is reality that they don’t care a bit of the phones after they are sold and are in the hands of consumers. FACE IT PEOPLE!

    g five much much better….. i like g five πŸ™‚

  5. SHAMS says:

    Why does it screen looks small, plz do a full video review of it I can’t wait anymore, still hanging between G9 vs A20 which one should I go for, one question can anyone tell me if i buy G9 I personally like it very much but worried about it display its too big if it fits in my front pocket then no doubt I will go for it. G9 design is similar to Galaxy S4 it look sexy whereas A20 screen looks smaller to me. πŸ™ no Idea…
    Also can anybody provide G9 pictures taken by it camera.

    • Usman Malik says:

      Shams, I will try to post camera result soon. Sorry for the delay .. got busy in some other stuff

      • xyed axfar ali says:

        This Model is Indain Brand Xolo Q800, plz check its specification from google or GSMarena. Modile is very good, I’m using it from last one week and there is no issue. This set has 10 Sensors and long battery time. Overall its gud smart fune

  6. ali says:

    usman bhai there might a problem in the sd card…try other sd card and i think it will work fine

    • Faisal Jaswal says:

      We tried that it didn’t work out, Qmobile is sending us a replacement should have it in 2 weeks time, will update and complete the review then.

  7. SHAMS says:

    So guys I should go for G9 but what about its camera result plz plz somebody post pictures taken by its camera..

  8. HolierThanThough says:

    The Design is very bad… even woese than A8 and A9

  9. Faaiz says:

    Main Disadvantages:
    I think A20 its almost like the Noir A6 bcoz A6 had lot of problems and some are solved but the main problem it has that the apps in internal memory cannot be moved to SD card this problem is not solved yet.
    The phone is a 2g technology phone again.
    The design looks like an upgraded version of the Noir A8.

    Main Advantages:
    The screen size is perfect and handy and according to http://www.incpak.com one of the best feature of this phone is the Camera Result which is crystal clear and almost like all other 8MP branded phones out there.
    Also the ram management is quite good and benchmark scores are quite high.

    • Saad Ahmed says:

      Im a noir a6 user.. i’ve been using it for 3 months with root. I never faced any problem on my mobile and i am currently playing conract killer (1gb) on it. there was only one problem with this smartphone of phone storage which sony xperia j also have. the problem was solved by rooting the mobile and editing vold.ftsb file in system

  10. Anas Muhammad says:

    usman bhai inform us about the SD card issue as soon as u can because i m planning to buy this tomorrow morning

  11. amjad ali says:

    sir noir a50 ka video revew in urdu plz plz

  12. Shahroz says:

    Plz Plz inform us as early as possible that the problem fixed or not?

  13. Hassan says:

    Just bought this, and having issues with wifi. When the phone is next to router, it connects to the wifi network but when i take the phone away lets say 2 meters, it drops the connectivity and then shows the wifi signal after a while but dont connect to the router again. does anybody else having the same issue with wifi?

    Phone signal, yes I also had the same issue with the phone signals. it drops, and at my place zong singnals are not that good, so it drops the signal at my place but i am more concerned with the wifi singals.
    Does anybody here have this issue with wifi?

    i’ll be thankfull for your kind answer.


    • Anas Muhammad says:

      I bought it today but I don’t found any fault or in its WiFi and SIm signals.
      Probably this is because of us router.

    • Usman Malik says:

      Our A20 has no problems with WIFI .. It connects to wifi even with weak signals and browsing and downloading apps works fine. However we are still not able to install games like real racing 3 and D-day. Did you install these games successfully ?

      Phone signals are fine for me on telenor as well.

      • Anas Muhammad says:

        All games and everything works fine only noir A20
        I bought it on Saturday
        Its SD card is faulty due to which when I reboot my phone than all apps were deleted.
        I went to QMobile care centre
        They reinstalled my phone and told me to inset some other SD card not one with mobile
        Luckily I have an extra 4gb card in my old mobile. I inserted it in it then they on their WiFi on my on he and told me to install apps and check it.
        I installed apps for half an hour and then reboot it, then I checked all apps and the were working fine.
        Then I formatted SD card (I got with mobile) and check it again but still it have same problem. So now I m using 4Gb card and it is working fine.
        Everything is perfect but memory is small.
        The cad works fine on computer BT not works fine with noir A20, so the SD card I got with h it is s faulty.
        But the mobile is awsom.

      • ali says:

      • Saad Ali says:

  14. Faaiz says:

    I just want opinion should I buy it or wait? Cause many are reporting to drop signals of WiFi and Sim randomly low. Plz inform us about the SD card issue because i m planning to buy this Phone.

    • Omair Ahmed says:

      Many have reported? or Just one above you?

    • Usman Malik says:

      Sorry Hassan if you felt ignored … Actually some questions are easy and for some we have to research ourselves .. so Thats why it takes time and I have other things to do as well besides the website, so i get busy. I will try to answer your question ASAP.

  21. amjad ali says:

  23. Tahseen says:

    Usman bhai tell me about camera result of noir a20 .
    kia is ki ful vedio hd recording hoti hai ? samaung htc mobiles ki tarha .
    is ki recording ki resulotion kitna hoti hai ?

  24. SHAMS says:

    Can anyone tell me difference between PowerVR SGX544 vs SGX544mp, how much performance will I gain if I choose 544mp over the 544.

  25. SHAMS says:

    Mx tipu, Can you please provide a video of your A20 show us physically that A20 can really run all those games without any trouble, also Usman bhai said We got a problem in A20 which is relative to Sd card for installing games into it, whereas you mentioned I have “installed” successfully some heavy games, then maybe Usman bhai have got a faulty device.

    • Mx TiPu says:

      i am trying and i will soon may be 1 2 days

    • khawar says:

      A.O.A , shams bhai mx tipu iz rit…..i have q a20 rooted,and it plays batman dark nit rises,gta vc max graphics and resolution,mdrn cmbt 4 and need for spd mst wntd aur nova mili nai aik mili the wo faulty the but i am sure a20 can run that 2 πŸ™‚

  26. SHAMS says:

    mx Tipu, you have to upload those things I’ve mentioned plzzzz.

    • khawar says:

      And yes one more thing is ki performance deknay kay liya mainay 2 hd moviz aakati chalai thaein(dice player aur aik stock pay) aik 1080p the ( avangers) aur dosri 720p(pursuit of happiness) 2.2 gb nd 700 mb respectively……. aur pop up play say movie chala kay browseing…… and camera quality out class

  27. Asad Ullah says:

    There are some games which run only in phone memory. On SD card, won’t work. This is phone’s internal memory is very important. A20 gives 4GB of internal memory, out of which much will be consumed with pre-installed apps making it less than 4GB, which is insufficient. Currently, I don’t know how much will be pre-consumed by built-in apps. Anybody knows? Also you cannot move all apps to SD card.

  28. Farukh says:

    Its Keypad is QWERTY based ?

  29. hassan says:

    Hi. Went to the shop here in Multan, and mentioned him the problem, he said go to qmobile for the warrenty, I lost my patience and had a verbal fight with him that I purchased from you just yesterday and you saying this. Anyways iwas a bit over in reacting, and after 2 persons who were sitting there intervined and he gave me the display unit which he opened just yesterday, and to my surprise its signals were awesome. and to my surprise signals reception of wifi was more then satisfactory.

    I am happy with the new set but very disappointed with the verble fight.

  30. Subhan says:

    I purchased noir a20 yesterday. Its everything works fine but when I switch off mobile then after turning it on all the apps of SD card were removed. Today I installed those apps and again along with many other Apps. Then I connected my mobile with laptop and copy songs in SD card then again all apps of SD card were removed. I spent 4 hours in downloading apps but now all AppS were removed.
    In Menu>storage > apps all SD card apps were shown by grey icons.
    Please solve my problem and help me.

      Nah its impossible..agar camera normal work kar raha ha tou kisi bhi software sy normal work karega…If not then software problem ha.!
      Lagta ha Chinese company ny qmobile ko THAGH liya ha..!

    • Umar Farooq Ch says:

      Automatic brightness is not working
      You can satisfied with my opinion after download alternate camera apps from play store
      That is why the camera of skype does not automatically brights the video

  32. huma says:

  34. Istiqlal safi says:

  35. SHAH says:

    Q a20 hd cem ha r g five?
    R in dono ki lcd r tuch kese hn My nu is 03127593288 plz koi mje dono k bare mn sms pe bty ga

    • Usman Malik says:

      Ahsan, The LCD touch of both these phones is same. Qmobile A20 has quality issues .. Many ppl are reporting issues. Its Camera is however good and records video in 1080p

  37. shershah says:

    Plz usman bhahi take look for qmobile noir A20 mey skype ka problem to nahi hey

    mey skype zeyada use karta ho wor muje A20 pasand aya hey so plz ap check kiji ki skype mey problem na ho …..plz plz plz it will be so kind of you…

    • Usman Malik says:

      Shershah , Our A20 was faulty , so we claimed the warranty with qmobile and now we will replacement in 12 days. After that we will do full review. Right now I cant answer your question about A20

  38. Mohsin Ehsan says:

    NIce job mate ! its a hectic work but really assistive. My question is that what is the differece between this AMOLED (qmobile12) and the screen of qmobile a20 (HD) and when is the review of a20 coming ( new review with fixed prob,s) .

  39. shikan says:

    sir g main sab kuch ker k daikha hay , agar softwere main problem hay tu handset main he hoi na , is phone main price hay kiss cheez ke softwere ke lol tu anyway main rest ker k bhi daikha skype update ker bhi daikha , dono sorat main he camera blind ….phir bhi agar app ku doubt hay tu buy this phone n check it shayd ap ke kismat mujh se achi ho app ka handset na karay problem lol

  40. @MX Tipu Though i Appreciate your effort but you should have recorded some other Live thing to show the video quality , Recording from a T.V Monitor is just stupid [no offence] You could have just recorded people walking by in your street or traffic on road … As it is the industry standard to show the Cam Result .

  41. ali says:

    Does it support 3g and notification lights???

  42. Shoaib Ahmed says:

    Dear Usman,

    I am still on the fence between A9 and A20. The deciding factor being 3G connectivity. I am in karachi and called up Qmobile’s head office at The Forum clifton to inquire about 3G connectivity. They said that both A9 and A20 had 3G. I insisted that the reviews on the internet had conflicting reports on 3G availability on A20 but they reassured me.

    My request is that when you conclude your review on A20, please give definitive information on the 3G availabiity on A20.



  43. hanzla says:

    Plz plz tell me

  51. ali says:

    usman bhai if u still has this phone try installing 4gb card in it….i think the problem with games might be solved

    • Usman Malik says:

      Ali I talked with qmobile Support and this phone does indeed have a software issue. They said that A20 will receive software update in 15 days and these problems will be fixed then.

  52. ali says:

    usman bhai review this phone!!! it might be a great alternative to qmobile quad core faulty phones!!!!(Xtouch X509)

  53. sami says:

    usman bhai do u think in next couple of months the problems with A20 will be fixed?? and also qmobile quad core phones price will decrease???

    • Usman Malik says:

      Qmobile support said that the problems in A20 will be fixed in 15 days .. I dont think prices will decrease in next 5-6 months

      • nida says:

        plz tell how to save battery of A 20 i just do messaging and sumtimes i use wifi but my battery goes to 50% in half a day i dont have long calls too then wts the reason and how to combat this issue

        • Usman Malik says:

          I think its normal for battery to go down to 50% after half day usage with wifi .. You can turn the brightness of the screen to minimum possible to save battery . turn off wifi when not using , turn off auto updates

  54. sami says:

    usman bhai i think that majority of the quad core set by qmobile are faulty..just go what mobile and see in the comment that a lot of people are selling their phones and they are making lame excuses that they are in urgent need of money or they got a gift of s3…..

    • Shoaib Ahmed says:

      Sami. From what I know. most of the comments on whatmobile are plain crap. Anyone can write anything to cast doubts in your mind and to malign a certain brand. The relative ease of accessing internet and social media is a double edged sword. You can run into “information” that is just incorrect and just because it is posted by someone as an “experience” you would consider it correct. Competitors at times use these tactics to lower the rating of their rivals.

      So always take what you read on on the internet with a pinch of salt. Yes there could be problems, like what Usman ran into, or what people are saying about skype not working on A20. But to confirm that one should rely on better reviews like the ones Usman is posting here.

    • Imran butt says:

      they want to kidding us .

      I have played eternity warrior 2, frontline commander, dead trigger, red line rush, temple run 1,2, candy crush, 8 ball pool etc

  60. salman says:

    Dear Sir… what i found from comments above. that noir a 20 has many faults in it. battery issue, wifi issue, SD card issue, games hanging issue, 3G issue, etc. kindly while giving final review cover all faults that either these have solved by qmobile or not. i shell very thank ful to you. as i am interesting to buy it. that is why asking. …

  61. Jia Ali says:

  62. Jia Ali says:

    hey guys………….. skype problem has solved in Qmobile A20…. yahuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu…. πŸ˜€ now this mobile is totally Bug free….

    • Anas Muhammad says:

      Do u update your mobile or purchased it this week because the skype issue is not solved yet in my se.
      I read in above comments that it’s software update will be available soon but it is not available till now.
      Kindly inform me about resolving skype issue or A20 software update.

      • Usman Malik says:

        Skype issue is not from Qmobile. You can update the skype yourself from the play store and the problem should be fixed.

        • Anas Muhammad says:

          I already update it but the issue is not resolved.
          It’s not only skype issue all camera apps are not working correctly. The image is very dark. Only in sunlight it works properly.
          Only the built-in camera app works fine.

        • Nabeel says:

          USMAN SIR


          • Nabeel we have not tested the A50 hands on, so as far as we know not many issues regarding the A50 have been reported, but most of the time problems do get resolved after a software change. As far as the A50 not facing any problems at all after a software install we cannot be certain.

    • Khurram says:

    • omar says:

    • Jia Ali says:

      Dear Kash..
      to turn off the auto update–> setting–> Application–>All–>choose Application like facebook, skype or whatever–> e.g open facebook, or skype or else –> uncheck on autoupdate…

      i think pre loaded application can’t be deleted, it could be disable…
      it would work fine when u “reset factory setting”

      • kash says:

        Many thanks for ur quick response. However I can’t find an autoupdate check box on skype. It appears the permission is fixed and not modifiable. Any suggestions on this front !
        Yes, u r right, the option is to disable and not delete. I am little unease to use the reset option unless its the only choice.

    • Usman Malik says:

      Goto Play store –> settings –> turn off auto update.

  66. kash says:

    I went to qmobile customer service and they informed me that its a software problem (front camera picture is very dark during skype session with high noise and skype auto update issue) – they will now return the phone after updating software in 2 days. Will keep all posted.

    • Jia Ali says:

      This is the right decesion… i m proud of the team of QMobile bacause they make your phone bug free with proper QC what i had observed.. and they dont give us a long time for wait… even they breif us very well… Thanks for the support team of Qmobile…

    • kash says:

  67. I hav sd card problem new card replaced but still not working and card corrupted ….. ???

  68. Salis says:

    QMobile is crazy! Installing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on Noir A20 which has 1 GB Ram and installing Android 4.2 on Noir A500 which has 512 MB Ram! Lol

  69. Salis says:

    Usman, the FLY IQ446 Magic has 3G and it is exactly same as Noir A20. So how is it so that Noir A20 doesn’t have 3G? Even QMobile site states that Noir A20 supports CDMA 900/2100 frequency which means it supports 3G. I also didn’t have a 3G option on my Noir A9 but it did support 3G.

    • Usman Malik says:

      Salis ,
      Qmobile actually doesnt buy from FLY , They buy from the same vendor and maybe when they were ordering A20 .. they asked them to remove 3G module to save cost ?W

  77. Murtaza says:


    I have bought this phone and its working great. great wifi, camera, interface and smooth working. I love it.

    Usman bhai where do you download heavy games like vice city and nova from? they are not available on the play store. atleast not free.

    • fahadshafiq says:

      on play store they are not free but if you sarch on google with the extension .apk (e.g. GTA vice city.apk , N.O.V.A.apk etc) you wil find a lot of websites offering free game like apkmania.com etc.kust download them and open them from a file manager like IO file manager (free on playstore) and WALLA you have your game. i hope my answer helped…….:)

      both hardwares are same . in my opinion go for noir a7 if you can buy . its really a v.v good phone in the range.

  88. TAHA says:

    Should i buy this phone or not and does every noir a20 have the same problems?

    • Faisal Jaswal says:

      Can’t say if every A20 has the same problem, our replacement set worked, but more bugs were reported in the A20

  89. TAHA says:


    • Faisal Jaswal says:

      If you have the budget for an HTC sensation XE try getting one of the other models of Qmobile such as the Quatro Z3 or the A950 or one of premium chinese sets for example the THL W200 costs 23k and has the best value for money in 1.5 GHz quad core processor class…

  90. Talha says:

    Dear Usman,
    I have A20 ..its spec mention that it has 4GB Rom but mine one showing only 1 GB….i have also checked it in Android assistant too.Are there versions of this phone in market or its manufacturing fault??

  95. Muhammad Waqqas Iqbal says:

    Q-mobile A50:
    Bought it in January, I hardly had the fone for 2/to 3 weeks in my hand, since then it is continuously with the Q-mobile service centre. Its a curse to have that phone, neither they change the set, but doing repairing n repairing on the fone. 1yr warranty is shit.
    I learned that buying a big brand means satisfaction in life.
    But when buying these wannabe brands, they make your life full of troubles.
    One thing you must add to your daily routine then i.e “Have to go to the customer service center”, where they complete service you brain, but wont serve you.
    I would suggest that if you’re going to buy a Q-mobile, please save your money and buy a good brand.

    Thank You.
