This morning we received the FAEA F1 Penguin for review, we’ve already put together an unboxing video along with photos of this low-cost device here.
We have high hopes for FAEA, which is why I was pretty excited when I received the FAEA F1 Penguin this morning from the official international distributors Faeamobile.com.
Although I knew the phone was on it’s way I didn’t actually no what was going to be in this morning’s package until I tore open the box and got inside. There I found the large cardboard packaging which house the FAEA F1 Penguin.
You can see a brief hands-on and hear my initial impressions of the phone in the video below, but in case you can’t watch it now I’ll tell you what I though here. Opening up the packaging and upon getting in the box you will find the phone, 2000mAh battery, charger and data transfer cable, there are no earbuds.
Removing the rear panel, which seems to have been manufactured in the same 2 step injection moulding process as the Meizu MX2, is a little trickier than usual thanks to a tighter, more snug fit (a good thing). The rear panel also holds the built-in NFC chip.
Gizchina News of the week
Under the cover is space for an SD card and their is an odd shape SIM arrangement which I have yet to play around with.
The front of the phone features a 4.5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display, capacitive buttons (which don’t light up) and a 2 mega-pixel front camera.
