Android Operating System 2.3 ( Ginger Bread ) , 650 MHz  Processor, It won’t be wrong to say that, Qmobile has taken the lead in the market, where this Android set is compared with HTC Explorer which has similar specification, fit’s somewhere in a slot right next to HTC Wildfire S but since A5 has 3.75 Screen Size, it’s one of the unique android dual sim hand set available in market. I been personally using it since almost 2 weeks, My previous phone experience been Nokia Symbian 5th Generation phones, this time I switched to Android, didn’t took me too long to understand this handset due to Android OS is very friendly, A5 has 5MP camera, with LED Flash, previous A2 had smaller display and 3 MP camera, minor changes made A5 in a low-budget one of the best Android Phone.

I been reading about phone users asking one particular question ” Skype Video Conference ” works on it or not ? well the answer is no, it doesn’t support , all thou it has front VGA camera, Price range is around 11,500 Pakistani Rupees which is around 120 US dollars, not bad at all, specially when it comes to branded company handset, while I was in a market looking for other Android sets unable to decide “one of the fellow said ” A5 is not less than HTC or any other, all those are 7000 to 10,000 thousand expensive than this one, just because they are Branded Company Tagged, thou Phones like Cha Cha / Explorer / Wildfire and Wildfire S comes with no warranty, this one has and just if one doesn’t see the Qmobile tag behind won’t able to notice any difference. I didn’t went for HTC at all and thought about giving a try to Qmobile Noir A5, which really been an amazing experience.

CONS :  Internal Memory Low Issue

It’s the  ( Same like HTC Explorer / Wildfire ) , you can force move apps using SDK manager, same like Explorer and Wildfire users does, without rooting the phone. Apps2SD works fine but some apps are stored in internal phone memory most of them can be forced move by little trick so, don’t get confused at all, when you buy this phone you’ll get 4GB mirsoSD but get 8 or 16GB once you got that, no need to make partitions and technical gambling stuff, simply install Apps2SD from Google Play Store it’s for free and beside it SDK manager install on your PC connect the phone with USB ( Debugging Mode ) some commands and that will resolve 70 percent of your issue.

Battery 

Since the phone is already using dual network, got GPS , WiFi which works perfectly fine, it sucks the battery like any other Android Phone, so when WiFi , Bluetooth , GPS not in use, turn them off, it’s easy just a click away. When using WiFi or Internet Battery lasts 4 to 5 hours max, than you need to recharge it. so, better than the feature off when not in use !  I don’t find this a big issue because use car charger too.

Camera

The Quality of the camera 5MP is good but not the best, I don’t know why most the low-budget android phones don’t have good camera result, but I was reading on the net, Camera features : (Not Available) ! No there are features in Camera all which user needed and also for the video recording which is not bad at all.

apart from these 3 issues , I didn’t find anything wrong with this phone comparing. So far I am using this android phone for internet purpose, GPS and Google Map works fine, there are other  apps and Pakistan Maps available which you can download.

Samsung and HTC has the phones with same specification but the screen size isn’t BIG as this one in this range as well as Very Smart Looks makes it more appealing. Get a good Handfree for Mp3 or if you want to enjoy music, Charger connects with USB cable, you can charge the phone by connect with PC,  rest Android gives you the ultimate experience in this friendly budget range !

You Can use Moborobo Suit download that one, works fine with this, thou it’s for HTC ” I Think ” but has many options and features. Connectivity Android made the most easiest way, switch phone Remote mode

will give you FTP address type in My computer address bar and get connected transfer files ( up or download ) easily. without connecting via USB or Bluetooth.

My Personal suggestion if you are looking for a Good Phone in this Range ( 11,500 ) I would suggest you, buy this one or secondary option is Qmobile A2 3.5 Inches display screen size, 3MP camera rest is all same. wait till the technology gets cheaper and better, hopefully  expected  QMobile A3 will be launched in August 2012, which would be 3.5 inches display , 3MP but will support Skype Video Conference, since I don’t need that feature at this time, I am fine with the one I have.

If you have any questions regarding QMobile Noir A5 you can leave a comment here, email me at farhan.imaan@gmail.com or tweet me @farhan_imaan , I’ll help you out as much as possible rest, Internet and Android users are way smarter me !

Keep Smiling and Enjoy life

Farhan Imaan  30th June 2012.

Hopefully soon I’m gonna upload the demonstration of what exactly I wanted to do with this Android Phone I’m sure your going to love the idea :)

UPDATE 18th JULY : FREE GPS APP  FOR A5  Click here with procedure

UPDATE 29th July :  KINDLY check Android Phones & Apps for updates about Android Phones and apps before posting your question / query , I been replying as many as I can,  I hope been helpful to you all, but do give your feedback after usage of Noir A5 Phone after using via email or comments along with apps you’ve been using.  email at farhan.imaan@gmail.com . 

Many Thanks….

May Allah Bless us all, Ameen…….

    Dear Farhan,

    Thanks for such a comprehensive review of your phone. Still, one questions remains unanswered, “How much is the RAM of this smartphone??”

    I am a consistent gamer during my leisure time so, I am very keen to have this phone if it asserts a good amount of RAM.

    Sincerely hoping for a satisfying response,

      farees responded:
      July 8, 2012 at 7:47 am

      RAM is 256MB , compared to wildfire or explorer which has 256 MB. Since, i am not a gamer i am using GPS easily social network , multimedia it’s working fine if you are gamer than i would suggest you HTC wildfire s which has 512MB :)

    Yes. Thanks a lot for Video! Basically I was conscious about the touch quality as many such brand phones like voice/q mobile touch systems work some time then go wrong while well famous brands touch systems always remains GOOD in working!
    Moreover being a Technology lover, I use MS Office/Web browsing/FB etc. Also sometime Camera/Videos etc use. Also I have been a user of IPhone 3GS & Nokia 701 (Symbian Belle) but due to some financial issues had to sale them & now need once again a phone like those & I think A5 will give me a TASTE near to both sets I have used.
    Moreover I need this set. Can you help me to get1 in cheep price as in market it is 10500!!!
    Thanks.

      farees responded:
      July 10, 2012 at 12:39 pm

      if you are already user and wants to use all features than i personally would suggest you Wildfire which is around 16 i think not sure or samsung S1 it comes from malaysia slight used around 18 – internal memory 16GB and touch quality camera SD optional extend 32 GB processor 1,2GHZ 1Giga RAM its better for you, S1 without warranty, or new box pack wildfire . tried calling but engaged and not picking i would suggest you S1 or wildfire not this

        Tanveer Cheema said:
        July 10, 2012 at 12:46 pm

        Dear this time it is hard to arrange 10K so I think A5 with some less price will be better! When some money comes in my pocket (INSHALLAH), I will go towards ZTE Mimosa X or Motorola Droid Razr Maxx. So try to get a low priced A5 for me. Thanks.

    Muddassir said:
    July 11, 2012 at 10:41 am

    Dear Farhan

    Could you please tell whether A5 has Html with adobe flash browser or is it wap browser.

      July 11, 2012 at 10:49 am

      It’s flash supportive , not the wap browser

    Dear Farhan
    Help me to buy a pin pack with some cheep price as in market it is 10,500. Also guide me that MS office is working in it or not?

      farees responded:
      July 11, 2012 at 12:28 pm

      your getting in good price 10.5k but i would advise you to get 4GB SD card exchanged with 8 GB, because I am thinking to get 16GB card for this , beside yes office works fine I am using KINGS OFFICE aap directly to SD connected with Cloud – BOX.net where I keep my documents .

    Tanveer Cheema said:
    July 11, 2012 at 12:40 pm

    Thanks Dear. When I get this1 then will be in touch in case any technical guidelines from you. INSHALLAH. See you later.
    Moreover some people are making misguided others by putting these comments that other CHINA Android based sets are good & cheaper at Hallroad & advising people not to buy Qmobile Noir A5. What you say as I am not belieiving on those.

      July 11, 2012 at 12:50 pm

    Hi,

    Mate, really liked you blog and the indepth info. you shared regarding the Qmobile’s Noir A5. Also liked you video review of the product. I wanted to ask you as I have read this in some of the other reviews that the Google Market dosen’t work or dosen’t work properly in this smartphone, reason being Google Market has problem recognizing these type of sets because of being a specific type of Processor…. . Can you please check this out and shed some light on this, please.

    Also I read somewhere that the RAM in the set is 156MB can you please confirm the actual.

    How has your Noir A5 been working uptill now? Any other performance limitations / glitches that you might have came to know of.

    Any other plus points? :)

    Thx, look forward to your expert feed back!!

    Cheers,

      Dear Mobin ,
      Google Play Store works, perfectly fine, nothing to worry about even I downloaded Yahoo Plug In for video calling it’s working fine. Yes the Internal memory is 156 but RAM is 256 , for that I am working on partitioning SD micro and share the internal usage, trust me I need friends those who are using android advise too, beside it A5 is doing hell of a job, I keep updating kindly read A5 Video Calling article rest of the details are there and share your views too ,

      Thanks

      I want to add something here like its plus and minuses and how to overcome the problem of minimal RAM:
      Plus: Large capacitive touchscreen, Enough good processor, gyro and proximity work really fine.
      Minuses: RAM bit too low 150+ (Shown by system in application manager) but 212 (Shown by the apps installed later), Camera bit sluggish especially when using its flash.

      RAM could have worked pretty fine but some apps generate themselves without the permission and give extra load to the RAM.

      I am using this mobile and here is my advice for competing the low sized RAM. First you need to switch off the working of Android Booster from its settings and don’t use third party widgets as they put extra load on the RAM.

      Now, install two apps. from Play Store, first is Advanced Task Killer and second is System Tuner.

      In the settings of Advanced task killer, check mark the apps you don’t want to play in background like Firewall, Facebook, Yahoo etc.
      Keep the widget of the Advance task killer on your home screen with which you can kill programs in one touch.

      In the System Tuner, “Include” the apps you don’t want to see running in background. And in Settings>Auto Kill option check mark “Screen is turned off” and “Device is low on memory”.
      Now you can enjoy a lot more smoother and quicker Noir A5 becuase there would be free RAM of about 50MB plus.

      Have a great day….

      Dear Shakir,
      Don’t compare A5 with explorer because A5 is lot better than explorer, internet works fine as you can watch movies and live TV on Qmobile Noir A5 and A2 , so there is no issue with Internet. ( Wifi )

    Thanks Farhan for your rearlier reply to my message.

    Had a few more questions if you could answer.

    Q mobile Noir A5:
    * What is the current price of this mobile?
    * Is this mobile (OS) upgradable to Android Ice-cream Sandwich or Android Jelly bean? does the handset support this?
    * Similarly, battery life is also considered short. Is there any other better battery with longer time available for the product?
    * Can we edit file for MS Word, Excel and Powerpoint? (Edit Mode)
    * Can we create (new) .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt, .pptx documents on the phone?
    * What is the Processor Type: ARMv6 or ARMv7 ? Is it CORTEX or MIPS?
    * Does it support Flash

    I know you have also mentioned this a number of times that you are not Marketing for Q mobile but sill thought I ask as I believe you have a pretty good know-how on the market any, inside scoop/speculation on the following:

    * Is there any new version of Noir A5 coming up? and when?
    * Any new advanced product launching soon?(Android based) and around when?

    Thanks again, have a great Day!!!

      It downloads same as pc, if there is an option of downloading after 5 seconds than it will wait and prompt since the bavkend is not A2 or. A5 but depends on site, beside it remember phones depend on OS, internal memory rest android works same as pc.

      I was told by the sells person at Qmobile Main Whole Sale shop, there’s a possibility that A2 now coming with 1 Ghz as some visitors told me could be the one in the same price, by changing the processor speed CPU Speed. rest I’ll confirm than post you back

      A3 is coming later this month but the specification of the phone is lower than A2 , since they have updated A2 with 1Ghz processor and 256 / 512 ROM .

        Dear Faizan,
        I have also mentioned how to save battery, right now I am using A5 and I turn off GPS, WIFI GPRS, BRIGHTNESS ETC.. when not in use especially wifi and gps use more battery so if you turn them off when not in use you will save battery efficiently.

    Can u please provide a bit more details about the battery life and the normal performance

    from battery life, i mean normal use with no wifi, GPRS, GPS etc, is this phone good as far as battery is concerned ? how long the battery can survive ?

    Same for performance, just provide details of normal use performance, is this mobile slow ? Can it play games like angry birds at correct speeds or very low framerate ?

        farees responded:
        August 15, 2012 at 1:24 pm

        There are many apps which only gets stored and work properly in the internal memory , due to low memory not on A2 or Noir A5 but many other branded expensive sets faces the same issue, even we move apps to SD memory 25% of it is left in the internal memory which i have noticed while moving apps to SD , when it is downloaded For eg :- its 5 MB app when moved to SD it turns 3.7 MB means 1.3 MB remained somewhere in internal memory. this is why even those apps which are for external storage fills the internal storage and makes phone jammed unable to function properly, unfortunately we are still in initial stages of Android which is competing windows OS with very efficient progress, if I compare with Java Symbian based phones androids are far behind that’s is why Iphone and Nokia are still leading, Android is progressing fast hopefully in upcoming 6 months we’ll see many changes and hopefully upgrading procedure, meanwhile we just have ROOTING the only possibility which been unsuccessful by me on A2 and Noir A5 . after which SD Partitioning could make a possibility to extend internal storage by linking it with SD, but yet not been done.

      1 . No we cannot upgrade Noir A5 .

      3. We can incrase CPU usage but which app does it properly still I am checking various so I can advise you any. WAIT
      4. You can download Opera browser it works fine, even Dolphin HD along with plug-ins works perfect fit with Noir A5.

    Hello dear one..!!
    i just wanna ask about the light sensor at the front..i saw at the unboxing on youtube it was blinking but in video he said it was the GPS light!Could you tell me what it actually is and how to make it work..??Thanks in advance

      farees responded:
      September 5, 2012 at 6:07 am

      Dear Zaid,

      The sensor which you seen was blinking in the video was the GPS sensor but in actual it doesn’t blink since it’s infra red only visible in camera lens , how it works well in a short way of exampling is , this GPS module detects the location the nearest transponder and receiver Provided by Network just as mobile phone gives signals when it’s in the range of Transponder Receiver also you call it antenna since they are place on distance from one to another, GPS detects and measure distance location range. usually when you will see any phone it will not blink now with with-in this one sensor there are multiple, int TYPE_ACCELEROMETER A constant describing an accelerometer sensor type.
      A constant describing all sensor types.
      1. TYPE_AMBIENT_TEMPERATURE A constant describing an ambient temperature sensor type
      2.TYPE_GRAVITY A constant describing a gravity sensor type.
      3.GYROSCOPE A constant describing a gyroscope sensor type
      4. LIGHT A constant describing a light sensor type.
      5. LINEAR ACCELERATION A constant describing a linear acceleration sensor type.
      6. MAGNETIC_FIELD A constant describing a magnetic field sensor type.
      7. ORIENTATION This constant is deprecated. use SensorManage ( gathers info from all sensors)
      8. PRESSURE A constant describing a pressure sensor type
      9. PROXIMITY A constant describing a proximity sensor type.
      10. RELATIVE HUMIDITY A constant describing a relative humidity sensor type.
      11. ROTATION VECTOR A constant describing a rotation vector sensor type.
      11. TEMPERATURE Sensor, This constant is Together they are known as AMBIENT TEMPERATURE instead. all the sensors works on the basic physics law.

      Like in the computer exchange protocols with the network and data packets sends and receive same way these sensors work with the Transponders, constantly exchange of data makes it easier for the phone to know location , weather, rotation , gravity , etc.. I hope you have understood as I tried to explain in simple way rather than entire post like a blog.

        For Gaming I won’t prefer you Noir A5 , But Noir A8 is way better than Galaxy y, It’s more like S-II just Internal Memory Difference. Check the Qmobile Noir A8 Specifications you will know and the Technical information post. I am sure it would be helpful for you to decide Why it’s better than Galaxy series

      I am sure you have updated facebook , uninstall it – reboot the phone and update it again. I had the same issue in A5 got resolved, beside it there is a facebook messenger app available which is better than going in FB and chatting, directly chat as Gtalk or SMS

      farees responded:
      October 15, 2012 at 11:48 pm

      Dear Taabi,

      Thanks first of all, well about weather if u constantly keep pressing it and option will appear below DELETE, so slide it to Delete and remove it from the screen, My A5 also had this issue nothing to worry. after you deleted it from the main screen Go to play store and search weather widget 3D weather u will see install it, after installing , on the main screen press menu > Add > Widget from the list choose 3D weather which u just installed, it will show rows and column press ok, than add City in it and Time to update like 60 mins , Enjoy the Weather Widget on main screen.

      About the apps,

      1. Yahoo plug ins ( if u are yahoo users ) for video chat
      2. MX player with ARMv6 Codec and VPF codec ok
      3. Keep safe , to keep ur personal images safe
      4. Move2SD to move apps in SD card.

      Kindly Do not Update Facebook Gmail they work fine as they are , your phone will get slow and occupy space for no season, yes if u are twitter users update it Must,

      Keep in mind that u have to keep 50 MP + free to use phone smoothly ,

      Must app is ( Android Assistant ) install it but dont move it to SD and I am sure you will understand the features it is ,

    Nice review. I have used HTC Wildfire and Explorer before. Android is addictive. I got myself an A5 Noir two days back. It is good value for money. But the battery life is really disappointing. It barely lasts 24 hours and I am not a heavy cell phone user. What could be done about this? I do not use GPS, GPRS or even WiFi that frequently.

      farees responded:
      December 15, 2012 at 1:43 pm

      Dear A5 i am not sure about internal storage and quality i been honest since stone age with all at this moment A8 having battery issue and A6 internal storage and phone memory so A5 makes sense in 10k but check GPS internal memory as well as apps move to SD or phone mem like A6 than buy
