Point 2 : Hardware
Apollo Lite is certainly no slouch in the performance department, after all the deca-core Helio X20 clocked at 2.0 GHz with powerful 16-core Mali-880 GPU, 4 GB of dual channel LPDDR3 RAM and 32 GB of eMMC 5.1 memory storage expandable up to 128 GB provide enough of horsepower.
Point 3 : Lossless Type-C digital music
And for the audio battle Apollo Lite comes equipped with the new USB Type-C connector allowing digital lossless audio output for the purists. But don’t forget the 3.5mm is there too so no worries about the compatibility with your old headphones.
Point 4 : Cameras
Equipped with dual ISP and dynamic depth of field, Apollo Lite’s camera could aspire to challenge the quality opponents. By combining ISOCELL technology with the RWB (Red-White-Blue) color filter creatively, the new image sensor enhances light sensitivity and color fidelity to a good degree, allowing for an improved performance in low light environment. And dont forget PDAF, dual LED flash, 4K recording or Blue light filter.
Point 5 : Screen
The 5.5-inch FullHD display offers Sharp IGZO IPS panel to oppose the lately prevalent AMOLEDs. And with the 95% NTSC gamut, 450 nits, 1000:1 contrast and Helio X20 unique BluLight defender and Smart Chameleon display it can try to tackle it with honor.
Point 6 : Fingeprint scanner
The fingeprint scanner looks pretty nifty too with the FIDO certification, 0.1s off screen unlock, 360°readability and independent ISP, so why not list it as one of the main selling points.
Point 7 : Battery
With 3180 mAh battery and quick charge support thanks to Mediatek Pump Express 3.0 the phone looks ready to last some heavy usage and recharge in lightning fast speeds.
Point 8 : 4G support
LTE is always a plus, but we are not sure yet about the bands available. Also the dual SIM dual standby setup shrinks if you decide to use the microSD in the second SIM slot instead.
Point 9 : OS
Apollo Lite comes with pretty much clean Android 6.0 Marshmallow and Vernee promises quick and frequent updates via OTA. With open kernel source code the chance for alternative ROMs and modding exponentially increases too so thumbs up for that.
