At the time, Highscreen pleased fans of the brand a unique music smartphone with dedicated DAC, and some time offers an interesting soup with a capacious batteries. But today we will talk about unusual for this brand apparatus — the image line Razar. To the editor arrived two look like twins, the device — a regular and PRO version. They have identical five-inch AMOLED display, ultra slim and light body, sliders to control the camera, but “Gemini” is a bit different as price, technical characteristics. About this and other nuances in the review.
Devices are supplied in small white boxes. For both, the kit includes the headset, a “mediator” to remove the back cover, the film on the screen, user manual, warranty card and charger with detachable USB cable.
The front side of both devices is fully covered by a Gorilla glass 3. The left side is empty, and on the right is the volume rocker, power button and a lever, a slider to control the camera.
On the bottom is the microphone on the top — output micro-USB and headphone.
The older model comes in the color “gray phantom” and is notable for the unusual performance of the back cover it under a thick layer of varnish when exposed to light is manifested textured pattern.
The Junior model is available in different colors and we got the version with the blue color.
To remove the back cover from both smartphones you need to use the complete “mediator”.
After the dismantling of this very tight panel we get access to two slots micro-SIM and one slot of memory cards separate.
The workmanship of both devices is perfect and, despite the presence of removable covers, the smartphone is completely devoid of any backlash and successfully pass the test of “twisting”.
The devices in the line Razar identical dimensions, weight and location of the keys. The only difference is in the surface of the rear part of the body — in the standard model it is both matte and textured, very pleasant to the touch, and the PRO-version of “back” glossy.
Overall, the ergonomics of the devices is excellent. The location is a bit understated rocker volume control and a miniature housing to allow use with one hand without any problems. And this is true even for those who have small hands.
The body of the apparatus has a thickness of 7.6 mm and a weight of the device is just 124 grams. These options allow you to easily carry your smartphone in any pants pocket and even in the small breast pocket of a shirt.
Pleased multifunctional slider on the right side of the case. Sliding this lever at any time to run the camera and then quickly switch between the front and rear. Taking pictures by holding the volume rocker, it is also very convenient, especially in the cold when you do not want to take off the gloves.
Of smartphones the same five-inch AMOLED screen with HD resolution. The flickering backlight is completely absent even in the setting of minimum brightness level that is rarely seen among screens, made by technology AMOLED.
In all other displays have all known this technology benefits — is a deep black color, very high contrast and high color saturation at any level of brightness. The angles of the displays are perfect, with white color also all good: typical of many of AMOLED screens blockage in the “greenery” no.
After installation, minimum illumination can not straining your eyes to read with any smartphone Razar night in a room with dim light, and with a maximum brightness the screen is fully readable in daylight on the street and fades a bit under direct sunlight.
The displays support MiraVision technology, which allows you to adjust color temperature, saturation, color, sharpen, simple, and dynamic contrast.
Smartphones are running almost “naked” Android 6.0.
Pre-installed apps a bit: in addition to the standard Google backup Manager, file browser, FM radio.
Application to send SMS, text, and keyboard — all stock.
System settings in addition to required options offer the ability to schedule automatic on and off of the smartphone, and the option to combine the bandwidth of Wi-Fi and 4G channels when downloading large files.
A separate section in the configuration menu to configure additional actions for hardware keys located on the right edge of the smartphone.
In both models devices employs a Quad-core MediaTek processor MT6737T, operating at a frequency to 1.45 GHz. Responsible for the graphics accelerator Mali T-720. RAM in the standard model is 2 GB, and PRO-version — 3 GB. Capacity built-in hard drive in both models is 16 GB. To expand the internal memory by using microSD memory card — for this there is a separate slot.
Performance of both devices is more than enough for everyday apps, and for comfortable web surfing.
Both handsets are also easily reproduce any HD videos, be it live video or playback files with high bitrate from a local memory.
In synthetic tests the older model a bit ahead of its counterpart, but the difference is insignificant:
But in games the modest hardware on both devices proved to be not the best way. In the “heavy” toys with good graphics on these smartphones, obviously, will not play:
The sound quality through the external speaker does not differ outstanding features — volume average, the quality is acceptable without any wheezing or other defects.
The sound quality when listening to music with headphones — a standard for “non-musical” smartphones. Serious “ears” of the device shake, but for a budget “plugs” of the stock volume is enough.
The PRO-version installed 13-megapixel camera with grain size on the sensor of 1.2 microns. The value of the aperture lens — f/2.0. The front facing camera have “advanced” model has wide-angle optics and vosmimegapikselnaya matrix.
The standard version of the camera easier: vosmimegapikselnaya sensor at the core, and the five — front.
Appearance AT for shooting on the device are identical. It has only basic settings.
In practice, compare the quality of cameras standard and PRO version. The survey was carried out at the same time with the same points (left — normal Razar, right — Razar Pro):
Here are sample images with the “younger” model:
And relieves Razar Pro:
By the pictures it is visible that the camera angle from the older model is wider and provide better detail. The camera in the standard model loses the detail and width of viewing angle, but at the expense of the other algorithms gives a more saturated color image.
But on the whole Razar Pro camera, of course, shoots better:
Survey of text (left — normal Razar, right — Razar Pro):
Panoramas in most of the cases are sewn together without problems, but under complex lighting conditions, for example, in photographs with controlam light, sometimes get artifacts.
Flash identical, not too bright.
Video both devices are capable of capturing Full HD resolution. The younger model above the saturation of the colors, and the older slightly better detail and more natural colors.
Sample video Razar:
So takes Razar Pro:
Front camera — no autofocus with a bright flash. The picture quality is also different (left — normal Razar, right — Razar Pro):
How it works the HDR algorithm (example Razar Pro):
Smartphones support Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and 4G networks in Russia.
Speed in LTE network raises no objections:
For orientation on the ground devices can connect to GPS satellites and GLONASS. Outdoors signal reception confident, and indoor by the window on a cold start it took about 25 seconds, hot start takes only about 5 seconds.
As the smartphones flaunt a slim body, super powerful batteries in them, of course, it would not fit. It is therefore no wonder that the product has a standard by today’s standards, battery capacity of 2500 mAh.
Measurements have shown that soup can confidently work one day with an average intensity mixed use (4-5 hours screen included).
In Flight mode the cyclic playback of Full HD video lasted 8.5 hours, then left with 8% battery and hour game Asphalt Xtreme c enabled Wi-Fi spent 22% per hour.
Despite the modest battery capacity, the smartphone is very good hold a charge — largely due to the energy-efficient AMOLED displays and not too “greedy” iron.
Have a Razar and Razar Pro similar properties and, despite the differences in the amount of RAM, the devices provide almost the same performance in daily use. But a comparative test photo capabilities showed that a camera in a distinguished, not only by the number of megapixels but the focal length of the optics, and image processing algorithms. The standard model differs lower price, bright color schemes and a nice matte performance the back of the case. And the PRO version has more simple design, more “RAM” camera of the best quality.
