A few weeks ago, they asked us to present a Smartwatch; now our friends from Everbuying propose us a very interesting smartphone: it is KINGZONE Z1, a smartphone with a price lower than the 190 euro (even less with the coupon supplied to us) but with discrete hardware components that manage to make totalize 42200 points on Antutu!
The CPU - as in most devices belonging to this band - is a Mediatek 6752 Octa Core a 64bit @1.7GHz; this is accompanied by a Mali-T760 GPU and 2 GB of RAM. The internal memory is "only" of 16 GB, but it is expandable via microSD up to 64 GB.
The photo compartments are very generous: 13 MP Sony in the back, 8 MP on the front one; I don't know how the software will behave, but surely the shots will have a (more than) good quality.
The display is also generous, 5.5“: Great for lovers of phablet, this display has a resolution of 1280 × 720 pixels, but uses a different technology from many screens on the market, or is a display JDI LTPS, which should guarantee greater responsiveness to touch and lower consumption in terms of battery.
The latter doesn't even joke: well 3500 mAh. If the display looks great, it will probably be due to a very large battery. 😉
The shell is very durable and ergonomic, the back cover is removable; the mix of colors, black or white together with gold, give the impression of a winning combination and a unique design. The dimensions - to finish the description - are the following: 14.38 x 7.18 x 0.73 cm e 1mm on board, for a total weight of just 139 grams!
Like many other smartphones seen in the past, KINGZONE Z1 supports off-screen gestures thanks to its own customized OS: KOS v1.2 currently based on Android 4.4, which will be updated in the future to Android 5 Lollipop. Another strength of this smartphone is the presence of theNFC, really very difficult to see on devices in this price range.
Finally, here is the rest of the features: dual SIM (normal, micro), LTE, OTG, GPS, Compass, WiFi 802.11b / g / n, fingerprint reader, OTA updates, flip cover window function.
Interesting? You can buy it at this link to approx 180 €, using the coupon EBKZ (valid until 6 April).
