So today I am going to review all the Qmobile Noir Series phones here. Particularly I will be comparing A8, A9, A10, A11, A12 , A7, A50. I have been thinking on how to do the comparison, since the specs of all noir series is so close to each other with only minor differences. I think Qmobile have done a great job introducing phones in all price ranges and thus compromising on some features. So I will not go in to much detail and just discuss some of the features in these phones.
Which Qmobile Noir you buy depends on your budget and preferences. So lets get started
1: Hardware Specs
Hardware Specs wise all of the noir phones have one thing common. Thats the memory size. Total memory in all of the phones is 4GB , with available memory around 1.9 GB. Rest of the memory is taken by the system. All Qmobile Noir Phones have 512 MB RAM. Which is unfortunate, since the main flagship devices are moving towards 2 GB RAM. Qmobile is indeed going to launch a 1 GB phone very phone because both micromax india and Fly ( russian company ) which qmobile follows have launched phones with 1 GB memory. So Its expected that Qmobile will follow up.
Processor wise we have the same specs too, All of the Noir Series has 1.0 Ghz Dual Core Processor from MediaTek. Only Noir A12 has a different processor which 1.2 Ghz Dual Core.
So In this category we can easily say that Qmobile Noir A12 leads the race.
Now this is where Qmobile has made different screens available in different phones. First there are two main options. 5 inch or 4.3/4.5 inch displays. You wont feel much difference between 4.3 and 4.5 inch display, so I will put them in same category.
5 Inch Display
If you prefer bigger screens then you have to choose between Noir A10 or Noir A11. Here I can easily say that A10 wins because it has the IPS FWVGA display compared to sime WVGA display of Noir A11. IPS technology gives you better viewing angles and clearer images. But there is a slight drawback of IPS display as well. They take 15% power then other LCD displays. So for 5 inch displays .. Noir A10 wins .
4.3/4.5 Inch Display
We have Noir A8, A9 and Noir A12 in this size of screens. I can easily say that A12 is the winner here since it has AMOLED display. AMOLED is much better technology then LCD because of better contract ratio , brightness , viewing angles and power consumption. So A12 wins in ths category.
If you only compare Noir A8 vs Noir A9, then A9 would win because it has IPS technology which is absent in A8.
4 Inch Display
The smallest in displays in our competition are A50 and A7. Both have 4 inch display. which is a good size as well, remember iphone5 has a 4inch display as well. So amoung A50 and A7. A7 wins since it has IPS technology.
So Overall If you ask me which Qmobile Noir phone has the best screen, I can easily say Noir A12. the size of the screen is perfect ( for me Qmobile’s 5 inch phones are toooo big because of large bezels ) , AMOLED looks great and the colors are good and sharp.
Qmobile has given two variations in cameras. 5 megapixel and 8 megapixel. In 5 MP you have A8,A11,A12,A7,A50. I have personally checked A12 camera result and I was very impressed with the results. You can check them at
Here I would like to mention that Noir A7 doesnt have LED flash and A50 doesnt Auto Focus Feature. So both these models lose when compared to others.
In 8 MP category, We have A9 and A10. A9 has an edge here because its camera has BSI ( back side illumination ) technology, which gives better results in low light. I havent seen A10 Camera result but considering the BSI factor. I can say that Noir A9 has the best camera in Noir Series.

The Battery usage in smartphone basically depends on how you use it. Some tips on how to save battery life in smartphones.
Noir Phones have batteries with strength of 1700 mAh to 2100 mAh. A10 and A11 have 2000 mAh and 2100 mAh respectively. These phones have bigger screens so they need bigger batteries as well.
Other phones have from 1700-1800 mAH.
Noir A7 has 2500 mAh battery with 4 inch screen. So if you go by numbers then Noir A7 wins in this category with smaller screen and bigger battery, it should give you the best time, but then it also makes the phone a bit fatter then others.
Also keep in mind that smartphones are power hungry, so they would last maximum 2-3 days on standby with minimum usage.
So here is the review. Let me know what you think about. If you want to add something to it. Share your own experiences you are welcome.
