Everytime I have the opportunity to review a phone, I discover that the Chinese brands are very close to the most famous brands and every phone is different and has something special compared with other phones.
This time I had the opportunity to review the FAEA F2 thanks to powerplanetonline to send us the sample to review. Even with a Mediatek processor MT6589 at 1.2 Ghz the final result have been better than expected, also as this phone is FullHD the graphic tests, usually are lower than a phone with a lower resolution.
First of all, lets see the specifications:
|Release Date||Already on sale|
|Resolution||1920 x 1080|
|CPU||MT6589 at 1.2 Ghz|
|Rear camera||13 mega-pixel|
|Front camera||5 mega-pixel|
|Dimensions (mm)||141 x 71 x 9.7 mm|
|Weight (g)||150 g|
|Where to buy|
One of the highlight features of this phone (and in all the FAEA) is the NFC support and also the FullHD screen. Lets see the unboxing:
With the 5 inches IPS screen and the FullHD resolution ( 1920 x 1080 ) and a density of 441, we are talking about a good definition screen. The screen makes this phone a good opportunity to buy if you are thinking to see multimedia content, internet browsing, etc.
Almost all Android device of this range mount a 13 mega-pixel camera, but this device has a camera with an aperture F2.2. Also can record video 1080 @ 30 FPS. Find bellow the tests at 1080p and 720p:
As I mentioned, the FAEA F2 has the Mediatek MT6589 processor at 1.2 Ghz clock. Most of people can think that this is not enough for a mobile nowadays, but this is not truth. The phone moves very smooth the system and even games. Of course, you will not play to the latest games, but, for these games you will need the latest mobiles. To show how it works, I recorded some videos to show running different tests and also playing to Temple Run (as you will see, I’m “pro” in this game). The benchmarks have been tested against the THL W11, so keep in mind that this phone has a “Turbo” SoC.
Regarding to the software, I’m very happy because it has a ROM very close to the Android 4.2 pure. There are few changes, and this is something that I like, because in this way is in our hand to customize or not without problems.
Until now, the FAEA F2 have been the phone that I like most, the design and colour is very good and also the feeling when you use it. The red lines around the camera also makes a modern design. Is not so heavy and no so thick so can be carried in the pocket without problems. Like the JiaYu G4, the main buttons are not illuminated with is a small con. Now, look a small collection of photos.
I recommend the phone to everyone that uses the phone in a normal way, to see movies and internet browsing is a very good phone as the screen is big and has a good resolution. Good also that the system is very up-to-date with Android 4.2.
