FOR TECHNICAL DETAILS CHECK – A8 Technical Information POST

FOR VIDEO : Check – Video Review  Qmobile Noir A8 POST

I think first question everyone wants to know is the price Rs:  14,500/-  

Reviewing Phone:  UPDATES 9th , Oct , 2012 .

Very slim and better than I expected, many people asked me about internal storage first thing well, it shows 1 GB internal storage can be used for apps, overall it has 1.96 GB which means 2 GB on the back end, OS is 4.0.4 , Yet I am reviewing myself hopefully with in a day or two upload the video for you and will give a demo. 

This Phone launched on 5th Oct, 2012 but officially will be launched on 10th Oct, 2012 yet I haven’t reviewed it personally so I won’t be able to comment more about it, I am expecting Internal storage as I have mentioned 4 GB hoping that it depends on SD Micro card, where as personally the user of 16 GB in Noir A5 I had to format the card twice till now, I will not suggests users to insert 16GB card because there is some issue which wipe off the data and tells you to format the card. 8 GB would be the right choice, well GPS Yes unlike A2 but more likely as A5. 4.3 Screen Size is huge so Battery timing must be less until and unless battery itself is not bigger and better.

I had the information of A8 from Qmobile person from the market whom i will surely contact check the phone and than i will be adding up information and will be able to inform you all about it more easily, for now it came 4 months late and behind it other models are awaiting to launch too, like A10 and others, now this is where Qmobile or any brand plays a little tricky for users, Indeed it is 4.0 Ice Cream fully able to support Skype calling and Html5 , flash, from the basic specification it won’t be wrong, Qmobile is competing with S II galaxy and Nexus. ( Benchmark tested ) See Technical Infomation -TEST -

Kindly when you write a comment , mention your city as well so i can understand where exactly query is from and many users asked me about internet issues,in which i was not able to understand where they are facing this issue, if you are Wifi user kindly mention your network ISP too ( Speed etc ) , I am sure this phone will wipe my objections with Qmobile. I am repeating again I am not a Qmobile representative so my information is based on my personal usage and understanding.

Any of you has used or reviewed the phone share you experience with all via comments, if you want me  to post it on the blog comment and write Post , if it would be appropriate for the users I’ll post it with in no time. Share your experience and knowledge as well. I think I been doing all possible for me to answer each and every single comment query email , tweets, and on the Facebook page ( Sharing is Caring ) join my page and it would be easier to interact and share.

Like The Facebook Page on the right side menu Sharing is Caring and get Video Review and Interaction with other users online .

Stay Blessed !

    Hello Brother, Thanks for your reply. and thanks for uploading the details of Noir A8 here and specially it’s price.
    Please upload a video review of it soon and let us know the link of that.
    also please tell me that does this cell have a GPU?

    i am so excited to buy it asap.

    thanks.

      farees responded:
      October 10, 2012 at 1:22 am

      Sure I will, tomorrow yet I am reviewing it myself and so far it’s a great phone way better than previous Qmobile series , upcoming one is A10 which is gonna be some what like S3 …

        Sumair Ali said:
        October 10, 2012 at 11:31 am

        Thanks alot for your reply.
        and it seems really excited. but please brother, when you review the handset also mention about it’s GPU, Camera Image quality ( better than A5 or same) and about Battery timing. ( the battery timing is really much low in A5 and as A8 has more bigger screen. are there any battery improvements)
        Awaiting for a video review soon and to watch A8 in action.
        Also thanks for sharing about A10. do you know the expected date of it’s launch or any features of this handset.
        Thanks and stay blessed.

        farees responded:
        October 11, 2012 at 12:37 am

        Dear Sumair,

        1. Camera I haven’t tested yet but normally it looks better than A5.
        2. Battery Timing … well it’s amazing I been using it constantly for 6 hrs on Wifi way better than A5 or any other
        3. GPU ? I didn’t get explain me a bit surely in a video review ill add

        that’s not just A10 which is more like S3 but A6 is on its way too.

        Sumair Ali said:
        October 11, 2012 at 10:06 pm

        Salam Farees,

        Thanks for your reply.
        I am so happy about the battery that is so awesome. ( now i will soon buy it as soon it come to my city Sialkot)
        in S3 it is 2100 mAh so for a handset within this price range it is really good.

        For A5 it’s camera quality is really bad in low light condtions, compared to my Asha 300 which has a 5mp camera without flash but it’s pictures quality is really much better.

        Well, a GPU is:

        The GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is a specialized circuit designed to accelerate the image output in a frame buffer intended for output to a display.

        Modern smartphones are equipped with advanced embedded chipsets that can do many different tasks depending on their programming. GPUs are an essential part of those chipsets and as mobile games are pushing the boundaries of their capabilities, the GPU performance is becoming increasingly important.

        well it’s like a graphics adaptor. like there is in our PC and is for playing graphic intense games.

        in A5 there is no dedicated GPU so we cannot play games which require hardware acceleration to show high quality graphics.

        in modern cell phones: brands like HTC, Sony, Samsung and others which work on Android based OS or Windows based do have dedicated graphics card known as GPU.

        a cell phone which has a dedicated GPU can show higher frame rates like being able to play HD videos and games.

        http://howto.cnet.com/8301-11310_39-20089871-285/5-apps-for-benchmarking-your-android-device/

        you can bench mark the A8 from any of the bench marking App’s mentioned in this link. Neocore will be a good tool to measure it’s frame rate and AnTuTu as well to see that where it stands between the HTC, Samsung, Nexus, Sony and others.

        Please upload a screenshot of these two bench mark applications.

        Waiting for a video review.

        Thanks a lot for your reply once again and stay blessed.

      October 13, 2012 at 9:36 pm

      QMobile Noir A8 has 4.3 inches screen with screen resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. To calculate ppi Pixel density of screen, take square of 480 and 800 then add both and take square root of the result. Now divide it with 4.3 which is screen size. So the exact ppi pixel density is 217 (same as Samsung Galaxy S2).

    Asslam-o-Alaikom! Yesterday I visited the Sadar Mobile Market in Karachi and inquired about the price of Noir A8; yup! the answer was RS. 14,500 only. But for what I am still confused is its ROM. I inquired about its ROM (Internal Memory you can say) and I get two different statements. 2 Retailer said that it has 4 GB of ROM and one said 2 GB.
    What I don’t like about Q-Mobile is that they didn’t give the full specification of their product in their website i.e ROM and RAM. These should be mentioned too but I don’t know why Q-Mobile is opting to hide it from its customers?

    In my opinion It should be 4 GB as ICS (Android 4.0) OS used/occupied 1.5 GB of ROM (Internal Memory you can say) and in that case 2.5 GB would be available for user end!

    I was sure about my opinion before I gone through your post. If anyone has correct information please do let me know.

    One more thing if you are considering to buy NOIR A8 then be sure you are no interested to use 3G Mobile Internet which is more likely coming shortly to Pakistan. As an alternate of Noir A8 you can consider buying G-Five G-95 Bravo which has the same specifications like A8 but differs only in processor (single core) and has a bigger screen and last but the most important has 3G Ready! so be wiser and decide yourself!

      farees responded:
      October 11, 2012 at 11:18 pm

      1 gb for apps and 1.9 gb for media storage it is overall 4gb phone just confused in market because there they are separate

        Muhammad Anas said:
        October 11, 2012 at 11:50 pm

        “1 GB for Apps and 1 GB for media storage” WHY?
        Still Confused! 1 GB + 1.9 GB = 2.9 – 4 GB = 1.1 GB which is quite low capacity for ICS 4.0. I heard first time that there is:
        If you have internal memory of 2.9 GB then it can be used for whatever you like i.e apps games and media at the same time. Isn’t it??

        Dear Bilal,

        Internal Memory is the space allocated for downloading apps ( Softwares like firefox ) A2 has 92 MB space which is very low when you have millions of Apps .

        Firefox has some issue if you read on google play store people are complaint about the same slow loading issue,

        I didn’t get Chrome not Sport Device !

        Set is getting hot , kindly switch it off and take out the batter for 5 mins than power on it.

        Regards,

        Farhan Imaan

    How are you?

    -> I have some question about QMOBILE A8:

    -> Hows its Loud speaker? Does its work loud with skype video call? Or we need earpiece?

    -> You mentioned in earlier post that “Battery is Amazing on Wifi usage over 6 hours i used it, its 1800mmAh 6.66Wh”. Is this usage with 100% brightness or less?

    -> Is A8 charge via USB?

    -> Is A8 fully support 16 & 32 gb sdcard?

    -> Can we upgrade to Android Jelly bean?

    -> In normal case, How much Ram is available out of 512mb?

      W/salam ,

      Your Questions and Answers below

      -> Hows its Loud speaker? Does its work loud with skype video call? Or we need earpiece?

      No Speaker works well, you can optionally add earpiece for privacy else just the way it is in A2 or any other.

      -> You mentioned in earlier post that “Battery is Amazing on Wifi usage over 6 hours i used it, its 1800mmAh 6.66Wh”. Is this usage with 100% brightness or less?

      on the Auto Brightness, automatically it adjust the brightness on which i use this phone ,

      -> Is A8 charge via USB?
      Yes it does get charge via USB too.

      -> Is A8 fully support 16 & 32 gb sdcard?

      Till 16 I have tested it works don’t know about 32 dear.

      -> Can we upgrade to Android Jelly bean?

      it is upgradable but no information about upgrading

      -> In normal case, How much Ram is available out of 512mb?
      512 overall is usable , i will post screen shot at night of various things users asked me.

    dear farees,

    Your review has got me excited and confused. i had planned to buy Noir A8 today but reading about noir A10 has got me confused

    should i wait for a-10or should i go for it with a-8.

    I have used Noir a 8 it is amazing,,, but need some infor on A10 as to any tentative date or even a month of its launch and price range will be helpful

      farees responded:
      October 13, 2012 at 6:28 pm

      Noir A10 is gonna be Dual Core Processor somewhat a copy of S-III , but the Price Tag is going to be above 20,000 PKR .
      It’s expected to launch next month November ( that’s what I was told by Qmobile Sales person in Sadar , Karachi ) where I got A8,
      I am not interested in A10 because it’s Costly and I think what I need A8 does it well, infact yet I have to explore how to ROOT and upgrade it
      because it’s possible in 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich platform , where as it wasn’t in previous 2.3 Ginger Bread Noir Series.
      Rest it’s your Choice wait for it or go for A8.

      farees responded:
      October 25, 2012 at 1:29 am

      What is “firmware”?
      Firmware refers to the applications and operating system that control how a cellphone or smartphone operates. It is called firmware rather than software to highlight that it is very closely tied to the particular hardware components of a device. Firmware is generally flashed into a phone’s ROM rather than simply being loaded into normal phone storage, where it could more easily be erased and lost in the event of a crash. Firmware updates are sometimes provided by a company as a way to fix bugs or introduce new functionality.

    Hello, I am Samsung Galaxy S and Sony Xperia S 12MP User.
    Now, I am going to buy a cheap mobile because big mobile cost me a lot.
    I have few information about Android , On Increasing memory.
    If you Add 8GB Card in Any Android Phone So You Can Divide 8Gb into 4Gb and 4Gb.4Gb will be available and other 4Gb will be added to Mobile Internal Memory , For A8 , 1+4 = 5GB !
    This method depends on processor speed, Galaxy Mini With 600mhz has 180Mb but can be upgraded to 1gb without any lags.
    So According to my Calculations , A8 Has Dual Core 1GHZ = 2GHZ 1 Core Power.
    32 GB card Can Be added and upto 26GB Space can be give to phone.
    Also, I am a developer on xda. A8 Can be overclocked to 1.3Ghz Dual core , Thats more power consuming but method for those who want to do real multitasking!
    Few Points I want to know About A8.
    1) Multitouch.
    Install Multitouch App From Google play and test and share.
    2) How solid is this phone?
    Galaxy S is very solid, 15000 is still much amount, If phone is dropped so?
    Or Pressure is applied ? or maybe inside your pocket ?
    Dont Drop your phone and tell me hahaha…..Just tell how solid it feels?
    You can sense from hand how solid it is, Its Finishing etc…
    —–> BENCHMARKS
    If i buy that mobile so i will make a Kernel for A8.
    I am Sure after applying that kernel , users will get benchmarks upto 3500 Minimum.
    ANy Info Requird so Contact me On Fb, I want to develop few things for this phone.

        next week A8 will be in Market but I would suggest you as a brother not to buy because its going to be 16k or above, A6 has Single core processor doesn’t make much difference honestly It’s slight expensive than A2 and way better than It, competing A8 , Buy A6 use it for few month hardly loss would be 2000/- you can always buy better one later by than GFive comes in market or other companies u never know A8 will be on its actual price after 2 months Jan 2013 Wait if you can ! but dont buy Expensively this company dont worth 16k

        November 5, 2012 at 2:22 am

        Its use to buy because after a month or so price will reduce and A6 is doing all whats the difference in 4 and 4.3 screen size , i know its single Core like A2 but even than its fast , it has internal storage , cam LED flash GPS i am not use . I think very reasonable in such price 11500/-

        hammad said:
        November 5, 2012 at 6:54 pm

        yes…u r rite….price is not much….so in sha Allah i will go for a6…..and good bye to a8…..:)

        farees responded:
        November 5, 2012 at 10:36 pm

I read all the comments and posts but one thing i guess is not answered. My query is that can we download apllications using a8 from google play ? and does google play shows ur mobile model and tells what is compatible and what is not ?

    Beside this Faree ur blog is really very helpful. Thanks :)

      Thanks Zohaib for appreciating my blog :)

      1. Google Playstore detects the phone, when you go via app it wont show u any phone detail A8 or anything but if you go via web browser than it will show you, yell I haven’t checked is it showing A8 or not but when I had A5 it was showing Noir A5. Apps which are not compatible it tells you on every android OS phone. not just Q.

      first of all people have made VIBER talk of the town, let me get it straight , Gtalk does the same task, it is just different apps even there are alternate apps available too, Viber doesnt work properly on any noir series beside Noir A5

      – Negative
      we cannot compare this phone with Nokia , Samsung or Iphone because the standards are totally different.

    Hi Farees. is there any way of unlocking the screen without using the power button. The main problem and only problem so far I found with my NOIR A 8 is that there is no way of unlocking the screen display except to press the power button to activate the screen.Well there is no harm in that, but it looks like after 6 months of use, this power button will stop working. any ideas on this?

    Samsung announces the 8-core(octa core) Exynos 5 Octa mobile chipset. It has 2 quad-core processors in one chipset. The chipset in particular will pack a quad-core ARM Cortex™-A15 CPU clocked at 1.8GHz and a quad-core ARM Cortex™-A7 CPU clocked at 1.2GHz, the first one to use ARM’s big.LITTLE technology. Samsung claims it’s the fastest and most energy-efficient mobile processor in the world, boasting a 70 percent increase in battery life. ARM big.LITTLE processing is designed to deliver the vision of the right processor for the right job. In current big.LITTLE system implementations a ‘big’ ARM Cortex™-A15 processor is paired with a ‘LITTLE’ Cortex™-A7 processor to create a system that can accomplish both high intensity and low intensity tasks in the most energy efficient manner.Samsung claims that the 3D gaming performance is twice that of anything available at the moment.The chip will be built on a 28nm process and pack 2MB of cache.
    We’re sure that there will be plenty of rumors that this will be the chipset in the Galaxy S IV, but it’s more likely to see it in a tablet first.

      NenaMark 2 is a type of benchmark that checks & calculate the ability of a GPU.NenaMark 2 checks & calculate the ability of GPU and gives the result in frames per second (FPS).
      Samsung Galaxy S III has 58 fps
      HTC one X shows 56 fps
      Sony Xperia sola shows 27 fps
      noir A10 shows 25 fps.
      NenaMark 2 comes preinstalled or you can download it from google play store.

      And i want to ask that, is there any problem with the message system of noir A8 ? cos many people is complaining about it.

        This post is pertaining to Q Mobile Noir A8. I am encountering two problems:
        1) while running apps a pop up always appears saying ‘LOW STORAGE SPACE – There is not enough storage space to complete this action. Please clear some space and try again’.
        But these apps are in my internal srorage which is only 254 mb used and 764 mb free. So there is already so much space!
        2) My sd card is full, so i want blazer to download directly in phone memory which is 1.84 gb free. How can i do that?
        I have written on sharing and caring as well and cant find any place on icpak to ask this?

    All features like camera, video cam, GPS, wifi, gprs working smoothly …
    games like Temple Run 2 running smoothly …
    tested skype , had to install latest version from store for video calls
    viber has robotic voice issue but hopefully will get it fine some way …

Noir has arabi and urdu language proper than htc with dual sim. everything is perfect. I will suggest people leave Htc and get Noir series from Noir A2 1giga.
