Qmobile Noir A7 Video Review + Pictures

Qmobile Launched a new smartphone Noir A7 yesterday. The most attractive thing about Noir A7 is its price, Noir A7 price is Rs, 13,500.  I wasnt expecting another launch in noir series after Noir A9, Noir A11 and Noir A12, but it looks like they are in full speed in launching phones, but sadly it has almost the same specs as the rest of the Noir Series that is

Qmobile Noir A7

Qmobile Noir A7

  • 1GHz Dual Core Processor
  • 512MB RAM
  • 5 Mega Pixel Camera
  • 4″ WVGA IPS LCD Display
  • 2500mAh battery. Now this is the biggest battery available in noir series so far. So this can be considered as a good add-on. But it also has a dis advantage. It makes the phone fat.
  • 4GB Memory
  • Android 4.1 ( jelly bean). Another change. All other noir series are coming with ICS but this one has jelly bean. One main difference between jelly bean and ICS is the project butter, which makes the UI smooter and more responsive. I havent used jelly bean myself though but i heard its pretty good and takes android to same level as IOS .

When I heard about Noir A7 ( from one of my blog readers Faiz Awan FJA), I was very excited about this. Because I am not a big fan of  5 inch phones and it looked like qmobile were going towards bigger screens. So I was pretty convinced about this and thought that I would get this phone.

Then I thought I should do some research and see where qmobile is getting the phones from, obviously they are not designing these themselves and they are basically rebranding some other company’s phone.

After some research it turned out that they did infact got it rebranded from another company. Now this is just a speculation, but comparing the specs and pictures I am pretty sure its the same phone.  The phone is FLY ENERGIE IQ440  . The only difference between this and Noir A7 is that Noir A7 has jelly bean and Fly IQ440 has ICS.

So Here is the view video review of Qmobile Noir A7 / Fly IQ440 . Its in russian :-) but I am sure you can understand some of it :-)

Qmobile Noir A7 Video Review from PhoneGuru Reviews on Vimeo.

 

So after looking at the review one thing that came to my mind was that its ugllyyy and fat. It was expected though because of 2500MAH battery, but otherwise the performance was good.  So if you dont mind the looks and want extra battery juice, then this might be a good phone for you at a great price.

Here are some pictures of Noir A7 / Fly IQ 440

Below are some pictures taken with noir A7 camera. You can check the noir A7 camera result yourself, which is good, I would say these are the best 5 MP photos from the phone camera. One major thing missing here is that there is no flash in noir A7, which is a big disappointment.

So Summarizing everything here.

Advantages

  • Noir A7 Price is Rs,13,500.  Great Value for money
  • Comes with Android Jelly Bean
  • 2500 mah should give a good battery time
  • Has a decent camera

Disadvantages

  • Its Fat 
  • Camera doesnt have flash
  • I am not goig to brag about 512 MB RAM because at this price you shouldnt be expecting more

So bascially if you dont mind the thickness of the phone, its a good phone at amazing price.

      • huawei ascend y300,,,noir a9… nd noir a7 ma kon sa mob best rehe ga??????????

        • Qmobile Noir A9 is the best option among these three. If you are spend a little more then go for Noir A12

          • plz tell me k a7 ki skype video call ki functionality kaisi hain. and also tell me about messenger chat speed. because main jo is time mobile use kr raha hu os se chating mein boht problm hai. koi message milta hai or koi nahi milta.
            to kia ager main a7 purchase karu to os mei to aisi problem face nahi krni pare gi na mjhy? can i chat via a7 as convinently as i do from a PC. thanx

          • We havent used A7 ourselves so my answer is based on specs and other qmobile noir phones that i have used. Popular messages apps like whatsapp, viber and skype work just fine on noir series specially the new ones. There isnt any problem in SMS as well. Which phone are you using right now ?

  25. plz tell me k a7 kii skype video call ki functionality kaisi hai. or tell me something about messenger chating speed. thanx

  27. AF camera or AF with LED flash mein difference kia hai

  28. http://www.fly-phone.com/devices/smartphones/

    No doubt QMobile is another ‘re-branding brand’. All the phones listed here are similar to the handsets being sold by QMobile. Check out the given link.

  29. I am using Noir A7, I can let you know what ever you want to know regarding this phone.

  30. The phone does what it says, I am playing games such as Temple run 2, Max Payne Mobile, Into the Dead, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Modern Combat 4, etc
    Well regarding the screen display quality and it’s resolution, Max Payne is a perfect hit for this game and that does include TR2, etc. NFS MW lagged a bit but not as much as to be disappointed. The songs preloaded inside the game lagged badly but the graphics were no doubt good. Supported applications remained smooth until I played MC4, it lagged a little. Max Payne remained smoother than my expectation, so basically in a price range of 12,900/- PKR, the phone is a dream come true for most of the users, no doubt.
    The 512 MB RAM helps it out. There are a few pre-installed applications that include Angry Birds Space, One Clean (No need to download Task Managers), Skype, etc.
    The new version and the pre-installed version of Skype is quite remarkable, though the pre-installed one lags when you are about to sign-out/log out of it. The update is recommended. Other wise the camera quality is quite awesome but the cons? Well, yup no touch focus, no flash. Other than tat the camera does what it says.

  31. Battery timing is perfect and suits me best since it is after all 2500 mAh. Charging time is a little longer but I would recommend using the phone’s included charger. Tried a Samsung, HTC and QMobile (Noir A2) one and they sucked at charging. The given charger for the handset boosts more energy than the other ones.
    The battery in playing games in full brightness of the display remained constant. The battery does not drain out fast like other Samsung phones. Well can not defy them knowing they are after all with smaller batteries in the capacity. So the battery got a 9.7/10 from me. As about the display quality, 9/10. Resolution is just pefect. Running the phone normally or with games and other running applications, there were no such lags that I noticed and the good part is that it’s multi-touch <3 :)

  32. Pre-Installed Application (Can be disabled):
    - Skype (Video Calls Supported)
    - One Clean (Alternate to Advanced Task Manager)
    - Smart Tools (Includes measuring distance, length, angle, sound, vibration and then compass, torch, metal detector, vibration measurement, etc)
    - Theme Skins
    - Weather
    - Kingsoft Office Suite
    - Magnetic Compass
    - Adobe Flash Player 11.1
    - WhatsApp
    - Dhingana (Alternate to Saavn)
    - Messenger (Yahoo)
    - NQ Mobile Security
    - Angry Birds Space
    - eBuddy
    - Twitter

  36. Quadrant is not yet stable on the JellyBean so I am going to miss it out, it shows different results every time on high-end phones.

  38. Another best thing I noticed about the QMobile Noir A7 is that the temperature remains stable, does not overheat like the Sony Ericsson Arc S but the bad part of the phone is that it is heavier than the rest in weight.

    Being a dual-core is perfect enough for users with a normal or a more advanced usage and for beginners, dual-core refers to a CPU that includes two complete execution cores per physical processor. It has combined two processors and their caches and cache controllers onto a single integrated circuit (silicon chip). Dual-core processors are well-suited for multitasking environments because there are two complete execution cores instead of one, each with an independent interface to the frontside bus. Since each core has its own cache, the operating system has sufficient resources to handle most compute intensive tasks in parallel.
    Multi-core is similar to dual-core in that it is an expansion to the dual-core technology which allows for more than two separate processors.

    In the graphs it appears quite better than a Samsung Galaxy S with a higher integer but right below the Amazon Kindle Fire with not much of a difference in comparence.

    As for the stability tests, the graphs remained green and positive showing no such high temperature or work over load, giving the phone a good performance plus point.

  39. The phone does not show any laggy prformance when in a normal condition neither in a normal – gaming experience so for the users in such price range, I would definitely recommend the phone for starters to novice users but as for the high-end tech users, I am sorry to say this phone is not for you. High-end always comes with a price such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 (55K+), HTC One (55K+), Sony Xperia SL (30K+).

    Graphics are quite rice in the price range as regarding other costly phones so I would definitely recommend this one. You may call it the Fly Energie or maybe the standard name used here, the Noir A7.

    I did my homework on the Fly Phones and got to know they sell their products under different names such as QMobile and Fly. They target the mobile phone markets of Russia, Ukraine, India, Southern Europe and the CIS.
    The company is based in Russia and the UK but the phones are being produced and developed in some of the selected and reliable factories of China where they use the high quality standard materials to make the phones reliable, strong and competetive.

  40. Downloading Asphalt 7: Heat (v1.0.6) for the phone since the game requirements are met and now lets see if the smartphone fulfills it’s promise or not.. I’ll write a review for applications people want or need. I’ll give the full review for it. Do ask :)

    (Emm Kay)

    • How’s the precision of the touch sensors? A10 has just 2 sensors which results in alot of typos when typing msgs. Does the same happen with A7 as well?

      • The precision is really magnificent and well no such typos/lags appeared in my usage. It’s perfectly normal :)

  41. Can anyone tell me about battery timing? like how many hours for video playback, browsing etc.
    Also tell me if we can move games and apps to sd card? or we can only move to phone storage like a6.

    • The battery timing is perfect for calls and texting and as well as running applications (games included). Yes, we can move games and apps to sd card by default.

  52. Hi !!! I have noir a7, it is working fine but only issue is RAM usage.It only has 20 or 30 mb free and phone shuts down the apps even if I play only songs, I have also used task killers but no result and the worst thing is that the task killer of the phone also does not stop the apps and I have to restart the phone in the end but after sometime RAM consumption again moves up. Need help , any suggestion ???

    • Install less apps , I guess thats all I can say about .. If you can factory rest the phone then that can also speed it up

    • hi’m using a7 and its good but abhe 1,2 din se hang horaha hai viber open hota hai aur phr aik dum se main home screen ajati hai games mai b yehi horaha aur photos mai b kindly help me what to do

      • do you have antivirus installed? if not get it installed right away and have your phone scanned, if that doesn’t help do a factory reset, but make sure to backup your data before doing that, in most cases that solves the problem….if it still persists after the factory reset then its best to to get it checked by Qmobile care center.

  53. A50 or A7??
    tell me asap! please!

  54. A7 battery is very owseome. But one thing i got that Ringtone is very low. But in headphone sound is owesome. A7 & A10 sounds are very low. shore main aap ko mushkil he kisi ki call sunaye de ya message because vibration bhe bohat low hai. But battery i will say again very very owesome.

    waiting for you best response …..

    • Mere paas A7 hai or phone theek chal rha hai.Mein ne ye phone May mein 12800 ka purchase kia tha or ab ye 10900 mein available hai.Camera normal hai means fixed focus hai or flash nhi ha,720p video banata hai.Video call b theek chalti or net mein b koi prob nhi hai.Bus prob ye hai k agar zyada apps install kr len to phn load lene lag jata hai means RAM boht consume krta hai or dosra prob ye k iski price 2000/= kum ho gai hai to ho skta hai k thori quality b kum ho gai ho but not sure about that.
      Agar budget 1000/= zyada kr len to VOICE V30 is se thora better hai

  63. Respected Usman Malik,
    I have gone through your reviews before purchasing Noir A7. It helped in very much. Thanks for the same. Its really wonderful job you have done.

    Sir, i have recently purchased Noir A7 and has installed pc-suit and driver into my computer after downloading the same form website of qmobile; but my phone is not connecting to pc-suit. I have also enable the USB debugging from developers option provided in the setting of phone.

    Regards,
    Shahzad Maqsood

    • You should be able to connect to PC without using any PC suite. just enable the USB storage on the phone when you connect the USB

      • Thank for precious reply. How can I enable the USB storage because when i connect the phone with computer via USB nothing happens; no notification whatsoever appears. Can i enable USB storage manually. My phone is not connecting to the computer in any way.

        • when you connect your phone to computer should get a notification on your system which gives you the option activate the usb storage. If that is not happening then there must be something wrong

  64. Which cell should i buy?
    Qmobile a7 or a60?

    Please reply!

  65. Hi guys, I have purchased Noir Q-A7, Its very decent phone set. Camera is also OK. One issue I am facing is that it records video in 720P resolution but frame rate varies. Indoor video recording I get 30FPS, but whenever I record in day light or bright light, it drops to12FPS. which broke my heart. I don’t understand the reason. Kindly if anybody can confirm and check it with their A7 model. May be its some setting problem or software bug. Kindly reply.

    • Do a factory reset, it should solve the problem if it is software related, also install an antivirus such as avast or dr.web. If it does not get solved after factory reset, then take it to a qmob service center.
