Mobile phones are an integral part of the life of every modern person. The Micromax Q415 smartphone has become an excellent budget option. Reviews, specifications and features of this device will help you decide on the need for such a purchase.
Appearance on the Russian market
Even before these devices appeared in stores, many were saying that the Micromax Q415, reviews of which flooded the Internet in just a few days, would become a bomb among the cheapest smartphones.
Besides, when the gadget went on sale, "MegaFon" launched a special promotion, which made a phone with good features more than affordable. Its price was about 3000 rubles. True, for such a cost it was necessary to connect a special tariff plan. But that didn't stop anyone.
I would like to talk about each detail in a rather dense and high-quality box:
- Headphones are not always present, and even if they are, that joy from themnot great, because the sound quality wants to leave the best. Depending on the color of the smartphone, the color of the headphones changes, for example, in the box with the Micromax Q415 White device, reviews from different sites emphasize that a white headset is required.
- Classic cable for charging or connecting your device to your computer.
- Power supply with a 700 mA red diode, which is very low for a modern charger. So be prepared to purchase an additional, more powerful device.
- Protective film and screen cleaning cloth. This is a very pleasant nuance, since lately not every device has been given such a gift.
- Documents. Surprisingly, among the different papers you can find not only instructions, but also a complete description of all the characteristics of the device.
This is a classic candy bar, which is available in two colors - black and white (if you want not the classics, but some kind of terracotta, there are a large number of covers and bumpers of any color). This, of course, does not affect the operation of the gadget, but for someone it may be a fundamental factor.
About Micromax Q415 Black, the reviews are quite unambiguous: it lies comfortably in the hand and does not slip. By the way, for such an effect on the back cover there is a coating that vaguely resembles a soft touch, as if rubber is applied in a thin layer. The phone does not collect fingerprints or dirt. There is a thin gray bezel around the edge of the black smartphone.
Many ask aboutthat's how good the Micromax Q415 White smartphone is. The reviews here are less positive, as the gray piping on the side looks cheap, and the case itself quickly gets dirty, and without a case, the phone becomes gray and dirty (some say that even the case did not help). The back cover is also rubberized, but in this case this is a huge drawback, because the dirt seems to be absorbed into the surface, although the phone does not slip in the palm of your hand.
Otherwise, this is an unremarkable, most ordinary touch phone at a low price, which was brought to us from China, although the brand itself is Indian. This is a normal practice, and many branded devices are now assembled at factories in China. As many argue, this did not affect the build quality in any way.
If we talk about the back cover, then the company logo is striking on it. Some say it's a fist, others say it's a hand holding a smartphone, others say it's just the first two letters of the brand name (Mi) of one of the ten largest phone manufacturers in the world. This is not so important. The very essence that it looks worthy and etched in memory for a long time.
Above the logo is a camera, which we will talk about later, a LED flash, a slot for a speaker and a microphone for recording video. Everything is thought out so that it does not irritate the perception and looks very harmonious.
On the front of the device is a screen, front camera, speaker, two proximity and light sensors. Below you can see three touch buttons and a slot for a microphone. Allquite simple, without much difference from any other device.
Let's talk about ends. On the left side is the power and lock key, as well as the volume rocker. These buttons practically do not protrude and do not differ in color from the rim. This is the case when reviews of Micromax Q415 vary greatly, because, as you know, how many people, so many opinions.
The right side and bottom of the smartphone is smooth with no keys or anything else, and the micro-USB connector and a headphone or headset connector are conveniently located on top. Everything is very simple, concise and unremarkable.
Screen and memory
The diagonal of the device is 4.5 inches, or 11.5 centimeters. The screen has a resolution of 854 by 480 pixels. The viewing angles of the smartphone are small, but for its price, the TFT display lives up to all expectations. The color reproduction is quite nice. The RAM of the Micromax Q415 is 1 gigabyte. This indicator will allow you to work with several programs and tabs at the same time.
The internal memory is only 8 gigabytes, and about half is occupied by system files. Therefore, when buying this smart phone, you must definitely purchase a memory card with a capacity of up to 32 gigabytes, since a large phone simply cannot handle it.
The smartphone has a 1800 mAh lithium-ion battery. It is thin and light, which is why the phone itself weighs so little. Smartphone Micromax Canvas Pace Q415 battery reviews are often negative. But with reasonable use, the battery lasts all day. Besidesdon't expect huge numbers from a phone that positions itself as a budget option.
The smartphone has a built-in mono speaker. The sound from it comes out quite bright, but users note that there are not enough low frequencies. This is a very common problem in budget phones.
According to what they say about the Micromax Canvas Pace Q415 reviews, the phone works quite fast and copes with medium loads. It has one of the latest systems - Android 5.1.1, and the manufacturers promise that the smartphone will be able to upgrade to the next version.
The processor is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 MSM8909 clocked at 1.1 GHz. These indicators are enough to install popular games such as Minecraft or Tanks. If we talk about the indicators of the testers, then the usual "Antutu" showed almost 18,500 "parrots". And this is a great result!
It is worth mentioning the Adreno 304 graphics accelerator right away. Thanks to its combination with the processor, any video sequence runs quite smoothly and does not irritate the eyes.
The smartphone has two built-in cameras. The main one is 8 megapixels, and the front one is only 2. The main drawback of the cameras is the lack of autofocus, so you should not expect rave reviews about photos in the budget Micromax Canvas Q415. In addition, in good lighting, the pictures are colorful and bright. On video, the sound quality will not differ. Sothat this is worth preparing for.
This, perhaps, is the very moment for which the Micromax Q415 reviews are quite enthusiastic. What causes this?
The thing is that one of the SIM card slots supports 4G. But what's so special about it? The fact is that 4G is high-speed Internet, which has a speed five times higher than the already boring 3G. Such indicators are practically not inferior to conventional wired Internet and are suitable for those who, for some reason, cannot run a cable into their homes. And all this is available in the budget Micromax Q415. Speed reviews depend on the location of the owner of the smartphone.
Pros and cons
How do users position the Micromax Q415 Black smartphone? Reviews are different everywhere, but there are a number of advantages and disadvantages that should be considered when deciding whether to purchase such a device.
Start with the benefits:
- Price. Of course, to buy a smartphone at an affordable price is everyone's dream, and it seems that with the advent of Micromax Q415 this question will no longer arise.
- Dimensions. The smartphone has a diagonal of 4.5 inches and weighs only 148 grams.
- Ergonomic. Thanks to the special coating, the phone is non-slip and feels good in the palm of your hand.
- Processor. For a budget smartphone, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 MSM8909 quad-core clocked at 1.1 GHz is the best indicator for quality work.
- Ability to work with 4G. Smartphone on the Internet just flies.
If we talk about the shortcomings, then among them are a battery with a low capacity, very small viewing angles of the screen and a small amount of internal memory - only 8 gigabytes. The sound of the device is light, but somewhat "barrel-shaped". Such a smartphone is not suitable for students, since without autofocus it is impossible to take photos of texts. The image will be soapy and not clear. And those who want to take a lot of photos will not be able to work well with this camera. Some users openly ridicule the inscription that appears during loading, as its design is slightly outdated. But you can eliminate this embarrassment without problems - you just need to change the firmware.
The main disadvantage of a smartphone is the need to unlock the device if it is not purchased from Megafon. When buying a gadget in other stores (although this, of course, is a bit complicated), you can use the services of craftsmen or carry out a series of manipulations yourself. This work is laborious and boring, but the result is worth it.
What do we end up with? A cheap smartphone with poor cameras and battery, but stylish, easy to fly on the Internet and with excellent performance. Is it worth buying such a device? Perhaps yes, because, in fact, this Indian Chinese is the perfect combination of quality and price.
