Fly Universe 5.7 (IQ457) review

As far as I know, Fly's IQ457 is the first device with an impressive 5.7-inch diagonal. Someone calls such devices phablets, someone phablets, I personally think that a smartphone is a gadget with a screen diagonal of up to 6 inches, and more than this diagonal is a mini-tablet or tablet. In practice, I found out that for me, and, perhaps, for most users, it is more comfortable to use a gadget with a screen no larger than 5.2 inches, provided that the frames are as thin as possible, like, for example, LG G2 or Meizu MX3. Therefore, Fly Universe 5.7 will be of interest either to gadget lovers or to those for whom 7-inch tablets with 3G are still too big.

Design, dimensions, controls

Fly's design team, I think, exceeded their capabilities when creating the IQ457: among a ton of plastic phones, a slender, overgrown metal smartphone was tucked away. On the photos on the net, it looks boring, but when you take it out of the box, you understand that you have a solid and high-quality product in front of you. You immediately remember the times of devices like HTC HD2, Samsung S8500 Wave or Nokia N8.

Front side - durable glass, along the edge - a thin frame that rises above the body to prevent direct contact of the screen with any flat surface, two thin plastic inserts on top and bottom of black, merging with the display. Almost the entire back side is covered by a smooth metal "back" of dark gray color. It also goes Original Crocks Slides on the side faces. On the back side, traces of objects with which the Universe comes into contact may appear. If you try hard, then expose the light-colored metal.

At the same time, the dimensions are quite compact for devices with a screen diagonal of 5.7 inches - 163.5x81.3x7.95 mm. Pay attention to the thickness: just under 8 millimeters. The gadget weighs 184 grams. Again, for such a device, "dressed" in metal armor, this is quite normal. The assembly is just excellent: no backlash, squeaks, crunches, as if the body is made of a single piece of metal.

На поверхности экрана за время использования (около месяца) не осталось ни одной царапины. Отпечатки пальцев заметны, но очень быстро удаляются. Палец скользит легко, что немаловажно в гаджетах с большой диагональю дисплея.

В общем, IQ457 – очень аккуратный смартфон с классным эргономичным дизайном, прочными и качественными материалами. Как говорится, «респект и уважуха»!

On the front side are: front camera, light and proximity sensors, voice speaker.

The operation of the sensors does not raise any questions: everything functions correctly. Under the screen - touch buttons "Back", "Home", "Menu". They have a fairly bright white backlight. The microphone is on the left under the back button.

At the bottom end - micro-USB. It is slightly off center to the right. Above - a standard 3.5 mm jack, framed by a metal insert.

The metal power and volume buttons are located on the right edge. They can be felt with fingers without any problems, they have a small but clear course. Nice to use. There are no elements on the left.

Behind - a camera protruding a millimeter above the body, a flash, a second microphone and a speaker at the bottom.

To gain access to the compartment with SIM cards, you need to slide the plastic panel located below from top to bottom. I think you will hardly be able to do it the first time.

Under the lid, one above the other, there are slots for regular miniSIMs. They are signed: below - SIM2, working only in 2G; top – SIM1 for 2G/3G signal. Unfortunately, there is NO slot for a memory card! And this, of course, is sad, considering that there is only 16 GB of Flash memory inside. However, for me personally, this volume is almost always enough (for personal use, there are Samsung Galaxy S4, Meizu MX2 / 3, Nexus 5, iPhone 5 16 GB).
