If you look after a BQ Strike Power smartphone for yourself, then this article will help you weigh all the shortcomings and dignities of this model to decide for yourself whether it is worth buying.
A smartphone in a medium box is on salesizes, from a dense cardboard, painted in red and white colors, which will reliably protect the device if necessary. In the box itself you will find a BQ Strike Power smartphone with a factory display, documentation from the manufacturer (warranty card, instructions), a USB cable and an adapter from USB to the plug, to use the cable as a charger connected to the 220 volt network.
BQ 5059 Strike Power is produced in three colors: black, golden and silver. The most advantageous look is the last two options. The reason is simple: the back cover of the smartphone is made of aluminum. But not polished or matte, but polished in such a way that at a certain angle you can consider the unique texture of the metal. And the anodized in silver or golden color the back cover will look very beautiful.
The phone though looks massive, but it is convenient in the hand, does not slip out and does not cause discomfort for long use. The dimensions of the BQ Strike Power characteristics is as follows:
- length - 143 mm;
- width - 73 mm;
- thickness - 9,9 mm;
- weight - 177 grams.
In this device there is support for two SIM cards and a third-party data storage device in the form of a Micro-SD card.
As for all mandatory componentsthey are in this case located approximately in the standard way: the volume and on / off buttons of the device are located at the top of the right side, on the upper side there is a port under the "Jack" for connecting the headset and the Micro-USB port for charging and connecting the phone to third-party devices. In the upper right corner of the back panel is a camera and an LED flash. In the lower part of it there is a rectangular thin speaker.
On the front of the smartphone is decentthe size of the screen, at the bottom of the three touch buttons, which, thankfully many users, did not begin to transfer to the menu, as it is fashionable at this time. Above, as usual, there is a speaker and a front camera.
As for the screen, the BQ 5059 Strike Powerhas a five-inch working surface with support for Full HD quality and an impressive view at many angles to the screen. But be prepared for the fact that in the sun it will fade due to lack of brightness.
BQ Strike Power Max is included in the line of phonesPower. Based on the name, it is already becoming clear to many that this line is different from most phones on the market. It has a built-in non-removable battery for five thousand mA / h. It is not removable to minimize the thickness of the device. Five thousand mA is enough for a whole day of active use, and for everyday needs, for example, to call, send a message, check mail, enough for more and for a longer period of time.
BQ Strike Power, whose review is nowis presented to your attention, is positioned as a phone whose main advantage is the capacity of its battery. However, the filling of this device also deserves attention. So, BQ Strike Power 4G has under its cover a quad-core microprocessor MediaTek MT6580 with a clock speed of up to 1.3 GHz. Unfortunately, this chipset does not support working with 4G networks, which is not good for the user. Video processor ARM Mali-400 MP2 in terms of parameters is weak and for games you are unlikely to fit. 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of basic with the ability to add Micro-SD to 128 gigabytes - an excellent indicator, but today this is no surprise.
RAM with active use,when you need to quickly switch applications, not enough, and there are tangible glitches. There are no complaints to the main memory, if it's not enough, you can insert a flash drive or use the cloud storage. As a result, BQ Strike Power characteristics is very meager, if compared with the analogues of this year.
Camera, sound and operating system
Yes, as it was said, BQ Strike Powerthe characteristics of the iron is mediocre, but here about the installed main and front cameras one can only praise the developers. Thirteen megapixels on the main camera and eight on the front-end are excellent. And the cameras work very well: there is autofocus, there is no imbalance in the color scheme, as often happens in many. However, do not think that the phone camera can be put on a par with the full digital. Here, as not to praise, but still in poor light will focus, so the photos will be blurry. But, as for the phone for 120 dollars, BQ Strike Power 4G shows itself in an excellent manner.
As for sound, something definiteit is difficult to say. There is a speaker, it works, and loud enough to hear incoming calls while in another room. But if you cover up the speaker, for example, with a blanket or pillow, you can not even hear it. Accordingly, if you have a house full of guests and playing music, you need to have a very good hearing so as not to miss an important call. Conversational speaker and microphone work well, but the ideal quality does not shine. It's the same with the headset. Music lovers with a sensitive ear, it does not quite fit.
But with the operating system "Android 7" isone interesting incident. Yes, this OS has a number of amenities, from the updated display, ending with a new energy-saving system and other chips of varying degrees of need. The developers have tried, the OS has come out quite demanding, but given the rather low characteristics of the smartphone, this translates into micro-delays and small glitches.
Summarizing, we can say that when choosing mobile devices, the focus is on their versatility. After all, today it is not just a means of communication, but also such mini-PCs.
Smartphone BQ Strike Power, whose characteristicsnot the best, perfectly feels in its price segment. This phone will not surprise you with something new, but it definitely costs its money. Especially in the Russian market, it has become quite successful, and sales are under way, which means that he found his audience. In other words, this demand speaks volumes. This means that users are ready to buy it, closing their eyes to some flaws. And negative feedback to the smartphone is not enough, and in general they concern petty things, which many buyers simply will not pay attention to.
