BQ Mobile Los Angeles smartphone review

Android has one big plus that can be presented as a big minus. Speech about the fact that this is an open system that can be installed on their smartphones by any manufacturer. On the one hand, this led to the fact that there are a lot of smartphones with this OS on the market. And these smartphones for every taste, color and wallet. This is a plus. The downside is that there are not so many really good smartphones and tablets on Android. Only top manufacturers, like Samsung, LG and SONY, make really serious devices that can be a worthy alternative to iPhones. By seriousness, I mean the excellent quality of materials (case, glass), powerful iron and software brought to perfection with OS updates. And then we are talking about units of models of these manufacturers. Well, they are, respectively.

And those who can not afford an expensive top-end smartphone from a famous manufacturer can choose from a variety of other models and brands. In their diversity can be lost. More and look alike. Someone tries to stand out, for example, with exotic case colors, a battery with an increased volume, or an extremely low price with good functionality.But, in general, it is quite difficult for manufacturers of budget smartphones to stand out.
I learned about the BQ Mobile company only after we made a trip to Copenhagen. He did not know anything about them. At first I thought to myself that this is another Russian-Chinese brand with a typical assortment of typical smartphones. But seeing the site slightly changed the view. First, it is clear that they are trying to stand out, to be brighter. This is even encrypted in the title - Bright and Quick. I don’t know about Quick (although I liked the speed with which we reached an agreement on a project with Copenhagen)), but Bright is for sure. Just take a look at their model range, that's for sure who does not want to drown in monotony among boring colleagues. Almost every smartphone can be bought in some bright colors - green, yellow, red, orange, violet. Secondly, I was surprised by the variety of the range of ordinary mobile phones. Do they still buy them? :) And I also like that they call their goods by the names of cities and places in the world.
Why am I doing this? And this is just an introduction to the post about the smartphone BQ Mobile Los Angeles, which was on my test. See if it justifies the Bright and Quick slogan. The box on the smartphone is already causing respect.High-quality, with good printing.

And here is the justification for the word Bright. I got a smartphone with a bright yellow back cover. Looks like nothing, did not go. And the touch is very nice:

And in front of all like everyone else. If the cover were black, then this smartphone could not be distinguished from many others. Even the brand name is not. But it is clear that the factory film is stuck on the screen. This is noticeable in the bubbles around the speaker and the camera lens. And from this perspective, you can see two (more precisely, three) side buttons: on / off, and volume:

Connectors for charging and headphones on top.I like it better when charging is inserted from the bottom, so it’s more convenient to talk when the device is charging:

Let's see what's with the software part. In budget smartphones stitch "naked" Android without any embellishments. It's about the same here. Well, maybe the view of the icons is slightly different, and the "dialer" is also non-standard. The rest of the most common and familiar Android. And from the first screen you can see the love of pre-installed applications. Look how many of them on the desktop:

But later it turned out that these are just icons for installation, these applications themselves are not in memory. But what really is:

A fairly standard set, with the exception of 2GIS, Give Life and Apps Press. And icons on the desktop can be easily removed. Well done, that did not begin to subtilize with a bunch of pre-installed software.
After two weeks of using the smartphone accumulated impressions. In terms of speed, there are no complaints, the quad-core processor knows its business. I did not observe any noticeable brakes in the interface. Antutu Benchmark test gave 24.190 points.
The screen is very pleasant: bright, with good color rendering (estimated by eye) and a clear picture (high pixel density). The volume of the music speaker is good, the bell is audible.But the vibrating power will not please, below average. With conversations, too, not without a positive with a negative. The speaker phone clearly transmits speech, and the microphone disappointed. Almost all the interlocutors said that they did not hear me well. I had to speak louder than usual. He sinned on the unfortunate constructive back cover of the smartphone. Take a closer look, the cover closes the microphone, leaving access to it through a small hole. I tried to communicate with the cover removed - a little better, but still quieter than usual. Maybe the instance got unsuccessful, I do not know. Will take - check this quality.
What else ... The battery for such iron is sufficient to provide a smartphone for a day or two in the mode of active use. The quality of images from the camera is quite consistent with the price:

By the way, about the price. It is a pleasant device - 6.890 rubles (as of March 2016). If you correct the moment with a deaf microphone, then a completely decent device will work.
