  1. please can any.one confirm me that how much ram ( memory) this set has?
    and what is the usable internal storage and does it has gpu and can it run hd games?
    please it would be really helpful……

    • 512 RAM at this moment I am reviewing myself, internal memory is 1 GB usable. where as phone is showing 1.9 GB which makes 2. but at this moment confirm 1 GB internal storage.

      • Hi Farees. What does this means ” It is upgradable”. I am using A8 and there is no option of system upgrade in settings. can you plz tell me what they exactly want to say?

      • Yet I cannot confirm you but surely this phone is upgradable it has vast range of options after rooting wait for my next post I’ll mention

  2. 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.


    • 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 …

      • 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.

      • 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.

      • 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.


        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.

      • Also, would like to tell that i have used the Sygic application. from the cracked version you have shared and works really good. i do receive full GPS signals.

        Works totally without data connection.

      • Salam Farees,

        THanks for uploading the Bench mark results with snapshots of Noir a8.

        I would like to give you some suggestions as well. can you give me your email address so i can email you there.
        I think it can help you to make your reviews more better and people will really like it.

        Thanks once again.
        Stay blessed and stay happy

  6. Salam.
    I have HTC gene 100.I want to by new Qmobile plzzzz guide me which one is best for me???? A2 or A8????

  7. 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!

      • “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??

      • No up till now as have explored its the way I told u, its not qmobile but huawei has same it saves in way data to be erased if apps up n down

      • One more Query please as you have this phone; can you please tell me that it supports adobe flash?? if yes, is it pre-installed? if no, are you able to install it from Play Store?
        Thanks for Your Kind Support!

    • I am doing great…
      you can download google chrome and firefox, but i am using secure browser which comes built in , it works as chrome, I am uploading Review part one check it in 15 to 20 mins it will be here on the blog and beside it check the Technical specification POST .

      • Dear I use q a2 and I download firfox but firfox is very slow and goolge chrome not sport device q 2 is not sport big software and my sate is getting hot very hot you have a dora say me and information q w8 give me
        Whats internal memory Dear I use q a2 and I download firfox but firfox is very slow and goolge chrome not sport device q 2 is not sport big software and my sate is getting hot very hot you have a dora say me and information q w8 give me
        Whats internal memory

      • 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.

  8. How is the front camera of this phone, Noir A2 front camera is very bad it shows dark video so doing video chat on skype is useless using A2 front camera, Does A8 camera also has this problem? please upload a video demo of the front and back camera also thx.

  9. آپ کی noir A8 کی ویڈیو دیکھی۔آپ کا review شاندار ھے۔میرے خیال میں اگر Qmobile والے noir A8 میں WCDMA کی بھی سھولت دے دیتے۔تو QMOBILE سب سے آگے ھوتا۔

  10. aap ke noir A8 ke video dekee.aap ka review shandar ha.ager Qmobile A8 mai wcdma ke soholat de deta to pakistan mai noir A8,mobiles mai sab se aagee hota.

  11. Assalam o Alaikum

    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?

  13. [QUOTE] what’s WCDMA ?[/QUOTE]
    W-CDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access), UMTS-FDD, UTRA-FDD, or IMT-2000 CDMA Direct Spread is an air interface standard found in 3G mobile telecommunications networks.

  14. 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

    • 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.

      Regards ,

      Farhan Imaan

      • but y they increased because of eid?? they should reduce because of eid so that customers would come more….infact they should keep special some discount such as EID SPECIAL OFFER or some thing like this….

      • Dear Hammad this is PAKISTAN ( DONT FORGET ) here everything happens opposite and people aren’t much Religiously Fearing Allah
        that they should Discount off but This Eid Each one will slaughter a 125 CC BRAND NEW BIKE while Flood victims were not even
        bother to asked if they need any assistance, for THEM United Nation is Doing ( Kafir ) where as ( Moomins ) are too busy in
        EID FESTIVE .

  28. it would be written on box whether amoled wvga or ips and in simple words amoled has black strong colour u can say which makes colours a little artificial on the other hand ips means in panel switching,u can get the clear view from almost any angle,but a bit dull with compare to amoled

    • 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.

  29. 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…
    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.

    • Dear neither I am here here to do marketing of Q fellas nor I would quote sony product , its simple as for everyone to understand without going into complications, indeed to help each other, if you are doing the same your most welcome.

  30. Someone already can make a root , update.zip for this phone.
    Rooting is not a problem, But if anyone give guaranty that its hardware are v solid so i can think about custom Rom.

  31. Can i upgrade it firmware (Android OS, v4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) ?
    if yes , than what is the best option to upgrade ? or what is the method of up gradation . ?

  32. hey farhan…can u help me….some one is selling htc desire in 15000(5-6 months used)…so iam confused between htc desire and noir a8….wat to do ?? which one is better??

  33. Heyz Can u tell me how to upgrade A8 to Jelly bean as it says its upgrade able and did jellybean effect its bty life or any negative after installing jelly bean …….. with regards

    • JB yet not updated and iCS OS is working fine we discuss these issues on face book page sharing is caring fb/weshareandcare be there you will get more ppl to discuss with.

  34. Assalamualikum brother….yar this phone is still short in the market…i have searched almost everywhere but i failed…dont know when this phone will come…and those who are selling are selling at higher price….can u get me this phone from sadar if u have any link in q mobile or from anywhere u know?? if yes plz tell…jazakAllah…

      • today i was told by a sales man that a8 price would be same i.e 14500 and the other one told 15200…and it will be available in two to three days….so iam now confused that should i wait for A8 or go for a6?? wat to do??

      • Bro , A6 launched today, even their website is not updated, but let me update you , check my new post on the blog Noir A6 launched . its same as A8 in all specification only difference is Shape maybe Screen size too . not sure because their site is not updated nor anyone on the web knows . PRICE 12,500/-

      • yes it is launched but its price is 11500….q sales man told me…but its not upgradable…..and its 1 ghz processor but a8 is dual core….this is a big difference…

      • sir iam not sure whether its upgradable or not….but according to price tag, it should not be upgradable….and i have read its info on a6 box…i didnt find anywhere written its upgradable….plz confirm of urself and let me know….thanks..

      • i must say in look, a6 is awesome….but the main thing is processor….one is dual core..other is 1 ghz…wats ur opinion bro?? should i wait for a8 or go for a6?? when a8 will be available in market and wat will be its price?? any hint abt that??

      • 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


      • 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/-

      • Yes you can buy after few months better one who knows what’s coming ahead maybe good and in budget so I would suggest A6 now reasonable price

  35. today i was told by a sales man that a8 price would be same i.e 14500 and the other one told 15200…and it will be available in two to three days….so iam now confused that should i wait for A8 or go for a6?? wat to do??

  36. bro freez mere pas qmobile a8 hai sometime wo wifi k signal drop kar deta hai any solution about thiz problem?????

    • Keep the Wifi device in range , I noticed myself Wifi range is less than other mobiles don’t get it why but hardly 10 to 15 feet it will be on 1 signal

  37. Pixel Density?, app speed?,Battery timings?, re-sale?
    And what would be the expected price in Good-Second hand condition?

    • Dear Sadam ,
      Everything is mentioned in A8 post and comments replied by me about the phone beside it I am not in buying or selling mobiles in market so I cannot answer how much is 2nd hand . kindly check comments you will find lot of information and technical information A8 post


  38. I called today to qmobile lahore office they said it is confirmed that A8 will come tonight to lahore and will available in market tomorrow. 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.


  39. A8 & A10 has.
    Chipset: MTK 6577
    CPU: Dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A9
    GPU: PowerVR SGX531
    this is a china chipset.

    the should try,
    Chipset: NovaThor U8500
    CPU: 1 GHz dual-core Cortex-A9
    GPU: Mali-400(single core) galaxy s3 & s2 has 4 cores (24 to 31 FPS benchmark)

  40. Dear i purchased A8 yesterday , but i dont understand its message systems , specially message edditing , kindly tell me message ki options kahan hoon gi like , forward , sent items etc .waiting for reply.

    • It was confusing for me as well, Noman join up on Sharing is Caring Facebook Page and ask there users will be able to guide you via screen shots.

  41. i am working on android project .. and i want to run my APK file on this mobile .. is there any app installer which can install my apk file on A8???

  42. A10 has 3g support & and more memory as well but it has very large screen 5 inches. i dont like big mobiles, 4 inch screen is better for me. big phones is difficult to carry in the pocket and it is more visible and difficult to hide.

  43. There are two things i want to know about this phone
    1. does it support USB OTG function? (can we connect a usb mouse, keyboard & usb flash etc)
    2. some of x models of qmobile used to come with Yamha Amplifier and i personally tested their sound quality was perfect you can compare those models sound with nokia xpress music editions. I just want to know that does qmobile a8 also comes with a Yamha Amplifier like its previous models

  44. hi
    can u tell me which chipset and processor it have ? like mtk7575 or mtk 6577 ?
    what is its screen dpi ? us some system info tool like android system info to find it ..
    or download a program from android fragmentation called device analyzer and just submitt its results to theri database . and give me the token number so i can find tech info about it ..

    also is it rootable ?

    currently i have a chinese galaxy s3 clone on android fragmantation databse use this pin 592726 to find its details ,, can it be rooted .. ?

      • can you please tell me about the display quality of its LCD. And tell me about its video player & it supports how many formats? does it supports subtitles of the videos. And what about web browser? does it support flash ?

      • Flash supports Yes .

        Formats depends on the player you install nothing to do with the hardware of this phone
        Playback HD quality records 720p browser built in Secure browser does all the usual task if needed u can download
        Dolphin or Chorme as per your requiration .

  45. Salam, What are its NEGATIVE things, wants to buy it & what about VIBER , Can u test VIBER in it that if it works properly or not & right now the price is 15,400.

    • 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.

      • No idea about Gtalk.. So If viber des not work properly we have many other software applications like viber, RIGHT.. & what is the talk time of Qmobile Noir A 8 & any other information which is important you can share with us . thanks 🙂

  47. 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?

      • you told me earlier that this phone can record 720p(1280×720) video on 3gp format, can you please tell me the frame rate of the videos ?

      • Dear Farees bhai, you told me that A8 can record 720p(HD) video @ 30fps but i am suspecting that it can only record 480p(vga) videos.How did you checked yor recorded videos ? did you just predicted the resolution by watching the quality of the video ? or you checked the details of the recorded videos.Did you see any option to change the resolution of the video in camera settings.
        I am asking this because i recently watched the sample of a video recorded from A8 which was 480p.

      • I record news coverage and i have HD 1080p sony bloggie now u cannot compare it with full HD but its 720p b tut 3pg formation mess up

  64. faree bhai dosen`t matter,,,,yesterday i got a risk about installation,,,and now im successful,,i have install 2 or 3 apps in my android,,,they are working…but i download them in my laptop via _qmobile apps_,,,,,,,thanks,,

      noir A10 shows 25 fps.
      NenaMark 2 comes preinstalled or you can download it from google play store.
