More than Faster : 12 powerful points make Vernee Apollo Lite “faster”!

Vernee are among the rare Chinese OEMs to have come up and generated interest right away. Their Thor seems to be doing alright, and now there’s the upcoming Apollo Lite which already seems like an interesting device.

The folks over at Vernee sent over some info about the Apollo Lite… info that they think makes the device stand out. Let’s take a look:


1. Running heavy games with ease
Carrying 64-bit 10 core 3-cluster Helio X20 chip with powerful Mali-T880 MP4, Apollo Lite can run any kind of heavy games without breaking a sweat. Its CPU allocating mechanism will help you out of force closes and lag.

2. Smooth Multitasking
Apollo Lite has 4GB RAM along with a Helio X20 SoC. Even if you open many apps at the same time, you can switch among those apps without lag.

3. Fast App Loading
10 core Helio X20 chipset, coupled with Corepilot 3.0 allocating mechanism will ensure fast responsiveness of all apps. And the 3 clusters are all designed to handle different types of workloads.

4. High R/W Speeds (100Mb/s write-in & 300MB/s read-out)
With eMMC 5.0 high-speed storage chip, the write-in speed can reach up to 100MB/s and the read-out speed can reach 300MB/s, allowing you to transfer heavy files in seconds. Besides, it will also enhance the loading speed of applications.

5. Smooth Internet Browsing and Social Apps
Apollo Lite features Helio X20, which sports two Cortex-A72 2.3GHz processing units. The high frequency brings more powerful single-core performance, which allows you to browse the Internet smoothly. And when running social apps, it will activate multiple cores to ensure the operation smoothness.

10min charge will support 1h call. And it takes only 30min to charge Apollo Lite to 50%.

8. 0.1s fingerprint recognition
Apollo Lite sports Egis independent ISP fingerprint processing chip. By collecting the fingerprint data each time it scans, it will keep optimizing and adjusting all the data.
In the end, the recognition speed will be fast and stable, allowing you to unlock in mere 0.1 sec.

9. PDAF Fast focus in 0.1s
Apollo Lite adopts all-new Samsung S5K3P3 camera with PDAF function. As a result, the focus speed increases by 7 times.
In particular, the focus ability in night is greatly improved, fast enough to capture every beautiful moment.

10. Fast image formation
The combination of Helio X20 chipset and eMMC 5.0 high speed storage chip makes the image formation of its camera much faster.
Within the single touch on shutter, the whole process including focus and image formation will be finished.

11. 300Mbps 4G LTE network
It supports 4G LTE Cat 6 network and dual-band WiFi(2.4G/5G). The uploading speed can reach up to 50Mbps and the download speed 300Mbps.

12. Type-C fast transfer
Apollo Lite uses the new Type-C connector, which features the same connector on either end. It also increases the transfer speed further.

    really want to know how it is the price performance of Apollo Lite compared with other models at similar price tag.

      this pretty much decimates anything within the price range and more besides phones that are pre-installed with malwares like 360 N4.

      IF it really lives up to expectation and none of the hardwares is falsely advertised.

      • MattD

        Is the original rom of the n4 “pre-installed with malwares”, or it’s just the resellers’ rom? Because the latter happens more often than not

        • quodvadis

          it comes with 360’s own OS and I really really doubt it’ll be clean, especially with the price. also heard that having spywares installed is not particularly foreign in China.

          at least with vernee the os is almost pristine android and the source code is open, so there will be alternative ROM pretty quick. 360 will also probably have custom roms sooner or later, but i advise against buying it before the custom roms are available.

            Do you know Where to find N4 outside China?

            • quodvadis
              June 13, 2016

              I think I saw some online shops selling them, I forget which, searching should help you find them, use 360 or Qiku N4 keyword.

              i personally do not suggest you to buy it, without any warranty. official channel doesn’t sell it, so you have to take a big risk to make the try……

            • quodvadis
              June 13, 2016

              buying phones internationally is already a big risk anyway and i personally always mod my phone so warranty is not a big factor to me

      I haven’t compared the competition at this price point but Vernee seems
      to have done well with the Thor. In the $99-$150 range I give the prize
      to 1.Thor, 2.Ulefone Power, 3.Oukitel K6000 Pro. They were able to be
      the cheapest but with the quality and recent features.

        After reading a 100 page long thread on about thor, I got quite disappointed with it. Shortly to say, the quality is on the low side.

        • VMortens

          Read similar threads and people complain indeed. Most of them, however, claim it was still worth $99.

    Vernee seems to be the most awake Chinese phone company at the moment. That means support, community, and good outcomes and choices.

    wait … arent the first 3 points TECHNICALLY the same thing ?!

    • mf1gt3r
      June 13, 2016

      Just another childish ad.

      • Floans
        June 13, 2016

        if you don’t know the details, how can you judge if it’s a worth-buying products?

    • quodvadis
      June 13, 2016

      1. GPU
      2. RAM
      3. CPU

      By your logic, the fourth point should be technically the same thing as it only ultimately helps the phone’s speed.

      This has dual channel RAM by the way, should be a good deal faster than most 3GB/4GB single channel phones too, theoretically at least, dunno if it’s perceivable in a phone.

      but the better is Apollo Lite supports Type-C digital music output and retains 3.5mm earphone jack, that’s a great feature i think!
