Qmobile Noir V4 Video Review
Qmobile Noir V4 Video Review
Qmobile is launching another phablet called qmobile Noir V4. As we know qmobile basically rebrands different phones from different companies from around the world and sells them in Pakistan. Qmobile Noir V4 is a rebranded and exact replica of Micromax phone Micromax doodle 2 A240.
If you just look at the hardware specs briefly, they are not very impressive and yet qmobile Noir V4 price is Rs. 29,500. But there are some extra feature in the phone due to which it is over priced but I believe those feature still doesnt justify the price. Lets look the specs first , and then we will have a look at the video review of Noir V4

So why Noir V4 is so expensive ? It is because of some added features. These features are basically present in Micromax Doodle 2 phone and since Noir V4 is a copy of it so I am assuming they will be present in it as well.
- Blow to unlock: you can blow some air on the phone to unlock , I really dont think its a very usefull feature but still its there.
- Look Away Pause: when you are watching a movie and you look away , the movie will pause automatically.
- Stylus : Noir V4 has a stylus support using which you can draw on the phone like the samsung note series.
- Magnetic Cover / Stand : The cover which comes with the phone is good , you can also use it as a stand and fully utilize the large screen for watching movies.
- Swipe controls : You can view images by swiping over the phone , without touch the screen and perform some other functions too.
- Multiple windows : You can open multiple windows on the screen , like two videos. or watch video while doing something else.
- Aluminum Unibody : The body of noir V4 is quite strong and would give a premium feel.
Here are some major cons / drawback of Qmobile Noir V4.
- No Expandable Memory : With only 13 GB available for Apps and videos , Its not very impressive, With such a large display you would expect to have several movies or games on it for a long trip but you will be limited to 13 GB space.
- Non replaceable Battery : Although Its not a huge drawback but for long term use , you have to see how easy it would be to replace its battery.
- Very Bulky in size : Although its a phablet so I shouldnt complain about its large size but keeping aside the 5.7 inch screen , the phone has big screen bizels which makes it even larger and difficult to handle.
- Performance : The CPU , RAM and GPU on Noir V4 are below par the price of the phone. It should have atleast have a 1.5 Ghz Turbo processor with 2 GB RAM to make all the features useful.
- Over Priced : Regardless of having good features ( not all of the features are actually very usable in normal life usage ) , the phone is overpriced, I think it would be a good value for money at Rs. 23,000.
