Highscreen Easy Power smartphone review

Vobis Computer company (it owns the Highscreen brand) has released another powerbank phone with a huge battery capacity for mobile devices of 8000 mAh. A nice bonus can be considered a good screen and the presence of LTE. Everything else is extremely primitive due to the low cost of the gadget - 7,500 rubles.

Since the device is distinguished only by a capacious battery, the review will be written "on top".

Design, dimensions, controls

The Highscreen Easy Power Smartphone is available in two color options: black bezel and red back cover, black bezel and dark back cover. Despite the simple appearance, the rear panel looks good, especially in red. In addition, the material was made rough: matte plastic interspersed with small white elements. Something like sandpaper, only much softer :)

The assembly, despite the large cover, does not raise any questions: it is tightly assembled, does not play and does not creak, the socket does not bend before the battery, the gadget feels monolithic.

On the top of the front side are the camera, light sensors, proximity, earpiece. Unfortunately, there was no indicator of missed events. The speaker is loud and clear. Easy Power microphone of excellent quality - the interlocutor hears you clearly and very loudly.

Under the screen are typical Android buttons without backlighting. I'm thinking, was it really impossible to apply a little effort and build an indicator and button illumination into the device? This is such a trifle, even if a potential buyer would pay an extra 100 - 200 rubles for it out of his pocket ...

Bottom - microphone and microUSB connector. On the top is a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

On the right are the power button and the volume rocker. They are made of black plastic. Pressing is clear, the stroke is minimal.

Highscreen Easy Power

The resolution of the Easy Power display from Highscreen is HD, i.e. 720x1280 pixels, the aspect ratio is 16:9, the density is 293 pixels per inch. IPS matrix without air gap.

Maximum brightness of white color is 330 cd/m2, maximum brightness of black color is 0.65 cd/m2, contrast ratio is 500:1.

Frankly, I don't understand the manufacturer: is it really difficult to adjust the brightness of the matrix to at least 500 cd/m2, because an 8000 battery allows the gadget to "live" for a long time? And so - the brightness is low, and the contrast is weak, and nothing is visible in the sun.

Battery

The most important thing about this device is the battery capacity. It is as much as 8000 mAh. As far as I understand, 8000 mAh is the largest value among all officially sold smartphones in Russia.

On the official site, oddly enough, they do not provide any measurements of the operating time. Although usually every manufacturer wants to stand out and show the results of laboratory research in order to attract attention.

Мои измеренные данные:

  • Видео (MP4, HD) на максимальной яркости без звука – около 16 часов

Комментировать полученные цифры не стану, оставлю это вам для комментариев.

В комплекте вы найдете сетевой адаптер 5В – 2А. Заряжается батарейка примерно 5 часов. Здесь не мешало бы использовать быструю зарядку. Но да, гаджет-то бюджетный…

Бонус – гаджет умеет заряжать другие устройства, но в комплекте нет специального переходника.

Камеры

Основная камера имеет разрешение 8 МП (диафрагма f/2.4), присутствует автофокус. Фронтальная камера на 2 МП (уверен, что интерполяция из 0,3 МП). Есть вспышка.

Surprisingly, the rear camera shoots very well for the money: accurate focus, accurate white balance, nice colors, sharp picture, minimum noise and artifacts. Record, definitely! The video is obtained in 720p resolution, the quality is low.

The front camera is here just for the sake of it, as the frames are of poor quality.

Hardware and software

The Highscreen Easy Power smartphone is powered by the MediaTek MT6737 chip, the most popular 4-core processor in recent years in budget devices.

It's quite fast and efficient, but the small amount of 1 GB of RAM interferes with it: the phone becomes "sluggish" when switching applications, launching programs and toys, and keeps almost nothing in memory.

Conclusion

I don't quite understand what prevents manufacturers from perfecting their products? Here Highscreen created a simple and affordable smartphone with a capacious 8000 mAh battery. However:

  • There is no microUSB-to-microUSB adapter included to charge other devices. Throw away the headset and put such an adapter in the kit;
  • No missed events indicator. For many, this is a criterion for choosing a device;
  • No backlighting of the touch buttons below the screen;
  • No fast charging. It is clear that this is impossible with such a chip;
  • Low brightness of the matrix backlight and low contrast;
  • Out of memory.

Which version of the apparatus I propose to make:

  • 5" HD IPS (or at least old AMOLED) with brightness from 450 cd/m2;
  • 8000 mAh with fast charging and adapter for charging other devices;
  • 2/3 RAM and 32 GB internal memory;
  • the presence of a notification indicator and button illumination (or the use of on-screen buttons);
  • Powerful loud speaker (considering the dimensions of the case, this is easy to do).

Yes, the price of the device would be in the region of 11,000 - 13,000 rubles, but the smartphone would be adequate in almost all respects.

However, Highscreen Easy Power has some advantages:

  • Pleasant appearance and materials;
  • Good running time (I think not the maximum);
  • Good quality photos from the main camera;
  • Google Android OS 7;
  • Good sound in headphones;
  • Low cost.

In competitors, I see only unofficially sold smartphones like Oukitel, Blackview and Ulefone. Of course, there are many Chinese analogues.

However, do not forget that the operating time depends not only on the capacity of the battery, but also on the optimization of the system, processor and other components of the device. Therefore, choosing a smartphone only by battery power is not entirely correct.

The operating system is Google Android version 7.0 (clean without add-ons and proprietary shells). Again, definitely a test!

Multimedia

The volume of the speaker is slightly above average, the quality is more or less normal, mostly high frequencies are heard. The volume level in the headphones is high, I really liked the quality: cool bass, clear highs and mids! One more score! There is a radio.

Conclusion

I don't quite understand what prevents manufacturers from perfecting their products? Here Highscreen created a simple and affordable smartphone with a capacious 8000 mAh battery. However:

  • There is no microUSB-to-microUSB adapter included to charge other devices. Throw away the headset and put such an adapter in the kit;
  • No missed events indicator. For many, this is a criterion for choosing a device;
  • No backlighting of the touch buttons below the screen;
  • No fast charging. It is clear that this is impossible with such a chip;
  • Low brightness of the matrix backlight and low contrast;
  • Out of memory.

Which version of the apparatus I propose to make:

  • 5" HD IPS (or at least old AMOLED) with brightness from 450 cd/m2;
  • 8000 mAh with fast charging and adapter for charging other devices;
  • 2/3 RAM and 32 GB internal memory;
  • the presence of a notification indicator and button illumination (or the use of on-screen buttons);
  • Powerful loud speaker (considering the dimensions of the case, this is easy to do).

Yes, the price of the device would be in the region of 11,000 - 13,000 rubles, but the smartphone would be adequate in almost all respects.

However, Highscreen Easy Power has some advantages:

  • Pleasant appearance and materials;
  • Good running time (I think not the maximum);
  • Good quality photos from the main camera;
  • Google Android OS 7;
  • Good sound in headphones;
  • Low cost.

In competitors, I see only unofficially sold smartphones like Oukitel, Blackview and Ulefone. Of course, there are many Chinese analogues.

However, do not forget that the operating time depends not only on the capacity of the battery, but also on the optimization of the system, processor and other components of the device. Therefore, choosing a smartphone only by battery power is not entirely correct.
