80% BQ Aquaris M5 review
Source: Techradar English
The Aquaris M5 is the spearhead of a new mid-range crusade, and it has a lot going for it. With a big battery, Android Marshmallow, a good processor, a healthy serving of RAM and a lovely screen, it compares well to most of the competition. Yet with a camera that is mostly average and some bugs and other issues on the software side, it needs a little more polish. Moreover, if BQ wants to make any real headway in the UK, it will need to adjust its pricing. The Aquaris M5 can be had for as little as £150, but it takes some effort to find it at this price.

The BQ Aquaris M5 is a fantastic phone, which offers fantastic sound reproduction, impressive camera abilities and an untamed Android experience all for an affordable price. It's hard to fault this budget smartphone, which has only recently entered the UK market.

BQ Aquaris M10

The BQ Aquaris M10 runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, but there is also an Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition, which comes pre-installed with the Ubuntu 15.04 operating system. The tablet has either a 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT8163B quad core processor or 1.5 Ghz MediaTek MT8163A quad core processor, a MediaTek Mali-T720 MP2 graphic card, 2 GB RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. Its 10.1 inch display either features HD resolution (1280 x 800 pixels) or Full HD resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) and is protected by Asahi Dragontail X toughened glass with finger resistant coating. The tablet does not come with a keyboard. Thus, users will have to connect their own keyboard and mouse. The connectivity includes a micro USB OTG slot, a micro HDMI port, and an audio/headphone combo jack. The storage capacity can be expanded by up to 64 GB thanks to a micro SD card reader. The Full HD model features a 8 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera, while the HD variant comes with a 5 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front camera. Regardless of the variant, the primary camera is capable of recording videos in Full HD resolution. With 470 g, the tablet is light and a 7280 mAh Lithium Polymer battery powers it for a few hours.

60% Tablet review: BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition
Source: IT Pro Portal English
The Aquaris M10 is very much a first attempt for BQ and you would expect future iterations to have some significant improvements. It’s also hard to find compelling reasons why iOS or Android fans would want to switch over to an Ubuntu tablet, but those familiar with the operating system should be excited to finally have their needs met in the tablet market.

The only good reason to buy the BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition is if you've been dying for an Ubuntu tablet and don't want to install the operating system yourself. For $312, you're getting an underpowered tablet with an operating system that you can install on a plethora of other devices for free.

Ubuntu bq Aquaris M10 Review Part 2: Software
Source: Slashgear English
Sadly, it is still seemingly at a beta level, despite being marketed in a commercial product. It is a productivity-oriented device that is nigh impossible to use productively because of its sandbox implementation. And the device might initially turn off Linux enthusiasts because of its locked down file system, which also prevents the kind of ingenuity and creativity that has made a hundred or so different Linux apps proliferate.

Ubuntu BQ Aquaris M10 Review – Part 1: Hardware
Source: Slashgear English
When it comes to hardware, the bq Aquaris M10 can perhaps be best described as something that "Just Works". That can be taken both ways. On the one hand, it has a no fuss approach to features, with hardware that performs decently for the price you are paying for it. On the other hand, it also means that, as far as hardware and design is concerned, the tablet is unexciting and unassuming. Depending on your particular inclination, that might very well be your cup of tea.

40% BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition review
Source: V3.co.uk English
The BQ Aquaris M10 is very a much work in progress. Sure, it might find a place in the hearts of Ubuntu diehards, but the buggy and seemingly unfinished software means it's nowhere near consumer ready just yet. Saying that, it's certainly an intriguing piece of kit, and the software could prove a viable alternative to Windows 10 once Canonical gets convergence nailed.

BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The above may make it sound like it’s all doom and gloom for the Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition, but this isn’t the case. Sure, the tablet isn’t ready for consumers, but that’s because it’s a work-in-progress. In the world of open source, early releases are often buggy and finicky. In fact, even the early versions of Android, which had Google bucks behind it, were pretty terrible.

BQ has done well in Spain, offering a line of well-spec'd, popular devices that don't break the bank. Now it is hoping to do the same in the UK, and the Aquaris M4.5 is leading the low-end budget charge. In many ways, this is a phone that belies its origins. A great deal of thought has been put into the design, into the experience behind the handset, and this approach has paid off handsomely.

BQ Aquaris M8

BQ Aquaris M8 is unveiled by BQ which is known for its Ubuntu mobile devices. The Spanish firm has led the way to fit their customers who have tighter budgets. BQ Aquaris M8 is a tablet with mid-range specifications and attractive price, which focuses on decent design and functionality. This tablet design is rather classic in a manageable size and weight for a terminal in its class: 215x125x8.35 mm and 350 grams. This tablet provides a viewing angle of an impressive 160 degrees, while also using the GFF (Glass-Film-Film) technology. The Swedish Beckers finish of its back cover repels dirt and has anti-fingerprint protection. BQ Aquaris M8 packs an 8-inch touchscreen, with 5 point touch and it offers a 1280x800 pixel resolution on that panel. There’s Dragontrail protection here with a special layer of alkali-aluminosilicate for extra sturdiness and to prevent scratches. The density remains in a modest 189 pixels per inch, with a strange aspect ratio in tablets which is 16:10.
Inside the BQ Aquaris M8, there’s a MediaTek MT8163B processor together with 2GB of RAM and a Mali T720 MP2 GPU. Internal storage is 16GB and expandable via microSD card slot. It is good that the internal storage is expandable because only about 11.2GB of internal storage remains available to the user, the rest of memory is destined to the Operating System, memory cache and other elements of the system. This is a typical case with a 16GB built in memory size. An Omnivision OV5670F 5 megapixel back camera with F/2.2 aperture has also been included and it’s capable of shooting Full HD video at 30 frames per second. Selfies are taken with a Galaxy Core GC2355 2 MP camera. The operating system of this tablet is Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and has a 4050 mAh LiPo battery. BQ has integrated an intelligent amplification chip (Smart PA) that optimises the response of the speaker depending on the content. It reaches the highest volumes without distorting the sound and maintaining a high fidelity. A quality sound that is powered by its two front speakers of 0.7W. This is a clear effort by BQ to provide optimised multimedia experience. The BQ Aquaris M8 features microHDMI input which user can connect to a TV or other external display. The microUSB OTG port could turn the tablet into a work centre with keyboard and mouse or external hard drive. As far as connectivity goes, this tablet features the usual package of WiFi b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS. The Aquaris M8 is an affordable 8 inch tablet suitable for the casual user.

BQ Aquaris X Pro

The BQ Aquaris X Pro is a minimal but better-equipped smartphone from the Spanish manufacturer BQ. The BQ Aquaris X Pro shares many features with the Aquaris X. In addition to the design, there are other differences, which could justify the extra charge of 80 euros: The camera should be better and the memory equipment is more generous. Visually, the BQ Aquaris X Pro has its back made of glass, which is somewhat higher quality than the plastic case of the Aquaris X. There is a thin plastic strip between the glass and the metal frame. Despite the slippery relief surface, the smartphone is very nice in the hands. The operation and accessibility of the buttons and touchscreen surfaces are easy from the hand. The BQ Aquaris X Pro features a 5.2-inch Full HD LTPS IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. Displays below the 5-inch limit have become a rarity in the Android universe. BQ calls the display technology Quantum Color +, which implies a particularly rich and detailed differentiated color. The smartphone’s IPS LCD panel has a pixel density of 423 pixels per inch (ppi), which is absolutely sufficient and provides additionally for energy saving against QHD values. Below this display, there are so-called soft keys, i.e. touch surfaces for back, task manager, and home button. The latter is hidden under the dot arrangement, which represents the BQ logo. On the side are two buttons, one for turning the smartphone on and off, for disabling the display, and one for controlling the volume. Depending on the definition, the volume rocker can also be used to control the camera. As in the Aquaris X, BQ relies on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 as the engine of the smartphone. However, the RAM has been increased to 4GB instead of 3GB in the Aquaris X. The mentioned 4GB memory leaves the mobile phone with smooth and fluent parallel use of running apps. Thanks to a close line at native Android, it is easy to keep the user interface up-to-date. The smartphone is installed with Android 7.1.1, the most current nougat version of the operating system used for market launch. The main camera of the BQ Aquaris X Pro awakens memories of the Samsung Galaxy S7. The data of the sensor with the code name Samsung S5K2L7SX is identical to the Samsung's smartphone sensor from the previous year, which is a 12 megapixels sensor with dual pixel technology. However, only the aperture is f/1.8 which is a bit smaller than the f/1.7 aperture in the S7. Nevertheless, the BQ f-number is above-average and should have a good focus to capture clear photos.

BQ Aquaris X

The BQ Aquaris X presents itself as a mid-class smartphone. The Spanish smartphone manufacturer BQ has surprised users in the past with good devices. This time, it is no exception. The smartphone has an almost perfect balance between specification and price. The display has clean lines and subtly embraces the metallic frame. The edges are curved thanks to the 2.5D glass. Inspired by the automotive technology, more than a dozen industrial processes are needed to model and create a perfect curvature. A fingerprint scanner is subtly integrated into the rear, and the contoured and polished edges are precision crafted thanks to CNC (Computer Numerical Control) technology. The 5.2-inch screen features 16.5 million colors, FHD resolution and a brightness of up to 650 nits. Its LTPS screen is thinner and more efficient thanks to In-Cell technology, which combines the LCD with the touch-sensor layer and also provides a greater viewing angle. The 16 MP camera features quick-focus PDAF technology and six Largan lenses with f/2.0 aperture, and the Sony IMX298 sensor has been specifically designed to capture more light. A dual tone flash employs different flash combinations depending on the scene in order to get best results out of each shot. The camera application incorporates new features like Multi-Image Processing technology and ZSL instant shot, which produce sharper images with less noise and deliver higher quality in low light conditions. With more than nine million pixels of resolution, users will be surprised by the quality and true-to-life look of 4K videos. For shaky situation BQ has incorporated the Vidhance stabilizer, a novel technology which analyses, optimizes and renders the image, which takes videos to cinema level. All this is done with minimal battery drain. BQ is synonymous with battery life, and with the Aquaris X, it seems even more so. Its 3100 mAh battery, paired with energy efficient components, lasts up to 20 % longer than previous models. Browse the web for more than ten hours or watch favorite series for more than 11 hours straight. Thanks to the Quick Charge 3.0 feature, a user can get up to 50 % battery life with just a 30-minute charge. Under the hood, it runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor, which reduces battery consumption by more than 68 % thanks to its 14 nm internal architecture and its eight A53 cores. Furthermore, the processor frequency is increased to 2.2 GHz. BQ has also opted for 3 GB of RAM in order to provide a much faster and fluid experience with apps. As for operating system, the BQ Aquaris X runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

For a wider audience though, we think it’s going to take some time. There need to be more user-interface refinements, more app development and a wider choice of hardware options. And we sincerely hope this happens.

BQ Aquaris V

The BQ Aquaris V smartphone recently released, is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 MSM8940 eight-core processor, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. The pre-installed Android version is hardly modified. With as size of 73.0 x 148.1 x 8.4 mm, which allows one-handed use, and a weight of 165 grams, it is a very handy model. The design of the Aquaris V is not particularly exceptional in the face of some direct competition. It is the kind of design that is simple and very discreet. However, it has been thought and improved subtlety. Looking at the slight curvature of the rear face, or the way the plastic portions hug the metal panel, it shows that the brand emphasizes on simple design. Made of metal, the smartphone is available in two finishes, which are black and gold. The Aquaris V has NFC technology for contactless payments or pairing, a fingerprint reader, 4G LTE network access and fast loading Qualcomm QuickCharge. The battery of the Aquaris V BQ is 3,100 mAh with fast load and the charger is included. It allows usage of one day without any major problems. The operating system is the modern Android Nougat and the screen features Always On features with notifications, information and various commands on a monochrome screen to help conserve battery power. It is upgradable to the latest version of Android, which is Android Oreo. The quality of the camera of the Aquaris V is the most exciting aspect of the Spanish device. It includes a 12-megapixel camera signed by Sony that has a f/2.0. The Sony sensor is of solid quality and seems to have a positive performance in terms of focus capture and image quality. With fully manual controls, quick adjustments, and the invaluable option of focusing and then dragging the photometry point to get a correct exposure, this is the kind of came app that is rarely found. Recording can be done at 1080p but without stabilization. The front sensor, which has its own flash, which is appreciated when doing selfies, is 8 MP with f/2.0. The screen is a 5.5 inch IPS display with 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution and is protected by Dinorex glass. Dinorex glass is not widely used, but it is almost as good as the more common Gorilla Glass. It does not scratch easily and can take some light falls. That being said, it is still better if it is protected by some kind of tempered glass or casing. This smartphone comes with IP52 Dust and Waterproof Resistance certificates, something that is always appreciated. The Aquaris V Plus has Dual SIM capability, which means that users can insert two different SIM cards and use them both from one phone. The BQ Aquaris V might be stuck in a market which is already saturated with mid-range devices, but it ticks all the right boxes for the typical mid-range user.

Surprise! The mid-range smartphone Aquaris V from BQ surprises with its accurate GPS module and fast WLAN. However, we did not expect the comparatively low processor performance. So is it a positive or a negative surprise?

BQ Aquaris U2

The BQ Aquaris U2 is an entry-level smartphone for a low price. The advantages of the smartphone include the battery power, the solid display and the support for dual-SIM. However, it does not have a fingerprint scanner. For the build quality, BQ’s DMA Control methodology covers all the development phases of a device (design, manufacturing, and assembling) thereby ensuring the quality of our smartphones. The LCD screen measures 5.2 inches diagonally and presents content in simple HD resolution with 720 x 1,280 pixels. The Aquaris U2's screen surprises with its 2.5D finish, its edges that have been reduced to an absolute minimum and its 5.2 inches in which the pixels shine like never before. Added to this, the protector made of highly resistant glass affords the screen an all-terrain quality. Although the resolution is sufficient, if user pays attention, they will notice the sharpness difference to smartphones with Full HD -screen. The color representation is quite neutral, the brightness very good so that the screen can be read well even under sunlight. The camera of the BQ Aquaris U2 snaps images in 13-MP resolution, a LED flash and autofocus are installed. The camera draws pictures softly, which reduces the detail. The front camera triggers with 5 MP. For selfies in dim light, a front flash is installed. The camcorder films in FULL HD resolution and at 30 frames per second. The camera also has special features such as slow-motion and time-lapse effect, as well as the face-recognizing face-beauty mode. As for hardware, a user has the Snapdragon 435 processor with 8 cores that yields up to 1.4 GHz and an Adreno 505 GPU, all with 2 GB of RAM. It performs well for the specification thanks to little to no modifications to the software. Users can work with multitasking and play less resource demanding games because everything performs reasonably well. Thanks to its 3100 mAh LiPo battery and a careful selection of energy efficient components, users will get the most out of the Aquaris U2 without having to charge it all the time. However, when a charge is needed the Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 feature will send the battery level from 0 to 100 % quickly, within a good 134 minutes. The audio's richness and nuances are appreciated thanks to the smart amplifier built into the speaker and to the Bluetooth aptX codec, which delivers maximum sound quality to headphones or wireless speakers. Purchasing is now more convenient with NFC technology on the phone. A user can pay securely and easily with this mobile, there's no need for a wallet. The Aquaris U2 also has Dual Band WiFi (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) for faster connections, Bluetooth 4.2 and a Galileo-compatible navigation system. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

79.8% BQ Aquaris U2 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Stock Android experience for price-conscious users. The Spanish smartphone manufacturer BQ is known for a slim UI very similar to stock Android. The Aquaris U2 is no different in this regard. While utilizing only average hardware, the low-priced mid-range smartphone had a surprisingly good performance in our test - at least in some areas.

BQ Aquaris V Plus

The BQ Aquaris V Plus is the best of the latest range launched by the Spanish firm for the mid-range market. BQ seems to be taking the right path to becoming more and more prominent in the mid-range market. It is a smartphone with good materials and specifications at an affordable price. This new range V of BQ is placed between the U range and the X range, as in the alphabet. The design of this BQ Aquaris V Plus is elegant and simple. This V Plus has rounded edges, opts for 2.5D glass and good manufacturing materials. The Spanish firm has chosen to manufacture the V Plus in metal in its entirety. The fingerprint sensor already installed in a lot of mid-range smartphones is located just below the camera and seems even with the second camera because it has the same size. This Aquaris V Plus has a 5.5-inch IPS LCD screen. It has Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and a pixel density of 423 PPI. In addition, NEG Dinorex protects it for falls and scratches. It has a maximum brightness of up to 570 nits that make it all-terrain to see even in the sun. Its good viewing angles are good and the screen is large enough to have two applications open thanks to Android Nougat. Belonging to the mid-range does not mean a user can not have a good photographic sensor. This BQ Aquaris V Plus has a sensor manufactured by Sony, the IMX386 model, which is a 12 MP rear camera. This sensor is the same as in other smartphones including the Xiaomi Mi6, Moto Z2 Force, and Meizu Pro 7. As for the front camera, it has an 8 MP sensor. The Aquaris V Plus' front camera has a flash to give that touch of very needed light. Face Beauty mode helps create an even and flawless effect. In manual mode, a user can change the focus distance, white balance, ISO and shutter speed. This Aquaris V Plus features the latest Qualcomm 400 processor. A processor that gives good results when handling heavy applications. Although it suffers a bit from powerful games or moving between demanding applications. It is appreciated to have 3 GB of RAM. BQ has chosen to incorporate software that is very close to what is Android by default. It has the drop-down application drawer sliding up and so on. Autonomy has always been something in which BQ has gone with its head held high. The non-removable Li-Po 3400 mAh battery ensures a good battery life of more than 36 hours of use and the Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 system is able to charge up to 50 % in little more than half an hour. The BQ Aquaris V Plus is a perfect example of a good mid-range phone. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

More or less? The BQ Aquaris VS is only available directly from the manufacturer. There is the more widely available BQ Aquaris V though, which while looking practically identical, is priced differently and with different specifications. Find out in this review whether the BQ Aquaris VS is worth its limited availability.

Purist. Straightforward design, slimmed-down features, no charger - At first, the BQ Aquaris VS Plus doesn't seem like a phone to fall in love with. But the stock Android, the good cameras and the low price make up for a lot. Is the Spanish smartphone worth considering?

 

BQ Aquaris X2

The BQ Aquaris X2 is one of the new versions of the manufacturer’s flagship X series. It has a notable feature which is an 18:9 display ratio. The mid-range smartphone offers great system performance, a nice camera and good speakers, which can satisfy most casual users. It ships with the Android One variant of Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, which is part of Google’s intention to help bring unity to the low-end smartphone market. The Aquaris X2 comes in two different color choices and two configurations. The 32 GB version with 3 GB of RAM comes in either White/Sand Gold or Black/Carbon Black. There’s also a 64 GB storage version, which has 4 GB of RAM. That version is only available in Black/Carbon Black. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 runs in the Aquaris X2. The case of the Aquaris X2 has a glass surface over the display, a metal frame and a plastic back, which can come in the colors "Sand Gold" or "Carbon Black". The case has an IP52 certification, which means it is protected against dust and water drops (maximum amount of water: 3-5 mm³/min for a maximum of 10 minutes). The metal frame gives the smartphone decent stability but contributes to its weight of 163 grams. The phone is nice to handle as it is only 8 mm thick and 151 x 72 mm large. As for the display, it has a 5.65-inch 18:9 display with a resolution of 2,160 x 1,080 pixels. This means that the pixel density is around 427 PPI. Content looks very crisp. The viewing angle stability of the liquid crystal display is very good. Colors do not invert at any angle. Reflections on the display are not too strong either, but they are noticeable when it is sunny. For the camera, the dual camera system in the Aquaris X2 consists of a Samsung S5K2L8 sensor with 12 MP and a Samsung S5K5E8 sensor with 5 MP. The 12-MP CMOS sensor on the main camera (on the back of the device) has a pixel size of 1.29 μm, so photos are very bright. Videos are recorded with the video stabilizer "Vidhance" at up to 4K and 30fps. The camera quality is good for a mid-range smartphone and the shutter speed for autofocus with phase detection is quite fast. The photos show a lot of details and are sufficiently sharp. Colors appear natural but tend to be a little pale. The X2’s stereo playback enables a user to live the immersive sound experience offered by the Qualcomm Aqstic solution and the two speakers of up to 9W. The earphones offer high fidelity playback with distortion levels of barely 0.002% at maximum volume, and the sound quality achieved by the aptX for Bluetooth codec beats all the standards of traditional codecs.

BQ Aquaris X2 Pro

The BQ Aquaris X2 Pro is one of the first smartphones in the world to include Google Lens. Compared to its predecessor, the Aquaris X Pro, the display's aspect ratio has been changed from 16:9 to 2:1. The resolution has therefore improved slightly to 2.160 x 1.080 pixels. The BQ Aquaris X2 Pro is made of Corning Gorilla Glass and aluminum. This is also one of the biggest differences compared to the smaller X2, whose back is made of plastic. The new display design makes the case appear slightly stretched out and it is also a little thicker than the predecessor was. The BQ smartphone is protected against dust and water drops according to the IP52 standard, so it is not completely waterproof. The card slot is made of plastic, but the cover is aluminum so there is no difference in color on the frame. The tray can contain either two nano-SIM cards or one nano-SIM and one microSD card. For hardware specifications, it features a Snapdragon 660 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. The BQ phone runs smoothly and quickly in everyday use and easily handles multitasking. The stronger processor of the X2 Pro also makes for good browsing. The Snapdragon 660 and the Adreno 512 work together well and can handle everything mobile gaming currently has to offer. It means the X2 Pro will display every title from the Play store smoothly and at high details. The front camera of the BQ Aquaris X2 Pro continues to have a resolution of 8 MP (F/2.0, 1,12 μm pixels, fixed focus) but has been given an additional lens. The X2 Pro now has a dual camera system, which the normal X2 is also equipped with. In general, the dual camera does quite well and takes really good shots in daylight. Videos can be recorded at Full HD (30 fps max.), but are not stabilized. It is possible to stabilize the video afterward. The BQ phone has a capacitive touchscreen that can recognize up to 10 touches simultaneously. Fingers glide easily over the Corning Gorilla Glass surface and the oil-resistant coating makes the screen easy to clean. Double tapping the display wakes the phone from standby or turns off the screen. The LTPS display of the BQ Aquaris X2 Pro has a 2:1 format and a diagonal of 5.65 inch. It has a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and reaches a pixel density of 427 PPI, which makes content appear very crisp. For wireless connectivity, the phones supports 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, and NFC. Other connectivity options include fingerprint sensors, headphone jacks, microSD card readers, and USB Type-C ports. The X2 also ships with Android 8.1 software, although they should also be among the first phones in line for an Android P update when Google releases the next version of its mobile operating system later this year.

BQ Aquaris U2 lite

The BQ Aquaris U2 Lite is a budget mobile with lots of battery, HD screen, and Android Oreo featured. It has Dual SIM capability, which means that users can insert two different SIM cards and use them both from one phone. The design is one of the most important factors when it comes to mobiles. This phone is 8.4 mm slim and weighs 155 grams. Added to this, the protector made of highly resistant glass affords the screen an all-terrain quality. The device has IP52 protection, so slight water splash is not a problem to it. Its screen is 5.2 inches with an IPS panel with 720p resolution, which allows a pixel density of 283 PPI. It does not lack 2.5D for this component to integrate well with the housing and the brightness rises to 520 nits. The visual experience is good with this screen. As for its interior, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor with 4 cores at 1.4 GHz. Together with 2 GB of RAM, this will allow users to squeeze multimedia content at full speed. For graphical performance that can make games run smoothly, this phone has got an Adreno 308 GPU. Onboard storage is at 16 GB with the option to expand the memory by up to 256 GB. The main camera is 8 MP while the front is 5 MP with front flash. The integrated front flash will give that touch of illumination needed to make selfies radiant even at night. Face Beauty mode will do the rest: it identifies any faces, softening their features and removing blemishes. Its 8 MP rear camera captures important moments swiftly and sharply. It does not lack HDR and it records at a resolution of 1080p. Its recording quality is good in general too. Even though it is a budget smartphone, it integrates the latest connection technologies. A user will be well served with LTE Global, Dual-Band Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) for faster connections, Bluetooth 4.2, 4G and Micro USB OTG. In addition, an FM radio is integrated. The Lite version, unlike the more advanced Aquaris U2, does not include NFC. As for sensors, it includes a light sensor, proximity sensor, accelerometer, compass, and gyroscope. It does not have a fingerprint sensor. Finally, its autonomy must be emphasized, because thanks to its 3.100 mAh LiPo battery and its selection of low consumption components user will get the most out of it without having to constantly charge it, although it also supports fast charge.
