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
- 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
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.
- 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
- 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.
