Glory Fly IQ 431Review.

After going through the device everybody will only be able to point out the highlights of the device mostly, mediocre display and then again the front camera is also missing. But one thing is for sure that the features they have come up with can boast to be the best in the market. So all you people who were looking for a smartphone which is really cheap can easily place their bet on this one as this costs just 300 AED.

The Market is flooded with Smartphones these days and there are so many manufacturers who are trying to get at their name added to the list of Android Smartphones too. Mostly in a rage to capture the market are trying to bring down the price of their devices and provide the same features as that of some of the high end Smartphones. Android phones are the best thing to happen in today’s life and there are several options in front of you. It doesn’t really matter how much your budget is as there are Fly by Eurostar has wide range of smartphones available We had a hands on with the Glory IQ 431  model by Fly.

Design and Display

If you look into the screen of Fly IQ 431 then you will see that in today’s market where everybody is stretching it out this Smartphone has restricted itself to 3.5 inch of display size with capacitive touchscreen. 105 g of weight will help you to carry this phone easily, but the only thing is that if you are looking variations in colors, then you will be highly disappointed as it comes in only one color that is black. Android 4.1.2 is the operating system for this device and the dimension is 116.3 X 62.3 X 12.0 mm.

Battery and Memory

You will get good battery life with 1300 mAh Li-Ion battery which will allow you a talk time of up to 5 hours with standby time of almost 200 hours. Now steering the discussion towards memory and here it provides you with only 512 MB and even the RAM is about 512 MB too. Now when the minimum memory space that every Smartphone provides is 1GB so it is a little disappointing in this section but the only saving grace is that it has the option of MicroSD through which you can easily get up to 32 GB of memory storage.

Camera

It will provide you with 3.2 MP rear camera which has a resolution of 2048 X 1536 pixels, but the front camera is missing so no self portraits with this device. Though digital zoom is made available, but you will not get any flash so forget clicking in low lights.

Features

The Audio player is there, you will even get video player, Bluetooth option is available, Wi-Fi hotspot available, GPRS an OTA support is also made available. Basically the device has tried to include all essential features of the Smartphones nothing out of the box.
