As the firm announced that it would contain the entire high end specs in a mid range price so that we have to find whether the announcement is right and meet all the expectations. So come let us peep into the details of this hand set.

Design :

Like many other smart phones we find the design in a rounded rectangular body. At the first glance you feel as if was seen earlier as the design is not that unique but it is lovely. The smart phone attains the credibility of a phablet with its big size of 143.4 mm tall, 72.4 mm wide and 8.95 mm thick and it is easy to hold and is out of good grip.


The rear is wrapped up by a plastic chassis that are offered in both black and white colors. The rear is out of fine finishing equipped with a camera lens and LED flash. The front is very clear with a large screen fitted with three android keys for home, back and menu, the home button is designed as a physical button which can be used without any problem with the other two keys. Above the screen we find sensors and front facing camera which are simple and good to see.

The sides of this hand set are crafted very simply with the volume rocker and the lock button on the either sides.

Display :

The 5 inch LCD powered touch screen with a resolution of 540×960 pixels is well settled at the front part of the handset. Though the resolution may not be that rich but it is okay because of the IPS technology support that maintains the balance at viewing angles and the display to be sharp. The sunlight legibility is great and the color saturation is good and even better in some situations. The light sensors present in the display automatically adjust the brightness of the device according to the presence of light. The display is also enabled with an optional interface of 3D technology.

Software and Hardware :

S5 titanium is boasted with 4.1 Jelly Bean Version of Android OS with all the advanced apps and widgets. The customizations offered and also the home screens with 6 screens are awesome. The working and the user interface offered just amazes us and is very much similar to best brand smart phones.

The hardware support extended by the equipment like the quad core 1.2 GHz is excellent. The internal memory is equipped with 4 GB ROM of which 1.4 GB is user available and the 1 GB RAM enhances the performance of the device by supporting the processor.

The camera support is extended by the presence of two cameras one is the rear camera of 8 MP size and the other secondary camera of 2 MP size.

The shots are very much fine and the outcome would be real satisfying with the presence of numerous options.

The secondary camera helps out to have a good video chat and some self shots. The video capture is supported for a HD quality that makes it look clear and fine.

Battery :

The 2000 mAh Li-Ion type battery is powerful and has good battery backup of almost 6 hours for the heavy users. From the test results we have observed that it gives about 12 hours of charge under full talk time. Predictably the battery is strong but may face challenges.

The entertainment segment comes up with the audio and video play backs with good sound quality and speaker system.
