Most of the visitors think I am representing Qmobile, which I am not basically there was no one on the web who had given review or answering questions / Queries related to Qmobile Noir A2 and Noir A5 , so I as a user of Noir A5 as much I was exploring I was replying their comments emails and tweets, let me get this straight that Skype Video Calling maybe a new feature for Qmobile but for other android phones which are expensive than this one they already been using it, GPS is must feature which is in Noir A5 and I am personally using it with sygic Pakistan Map it’s very useful and great NOTE :- don’t download Sygic from google play store because that’s just 14 days trial version, I have posted the APK file link download older cracked version and than download the map it doesn’t require internet at all like Google Maps does.
About Noir A2 .
First when it came it had the processor 650Mhz by Qmobile company mentioned ( WRONG ) it had 712Mhz processor on that phone I tried Yahoo Messenger Video Calling and It worked well, Noir A2 – ARMv6 Based Android Phone than after a month they changed the phone without telling anyone with 1Ghz processor Noir A2- ARMv7 Based Android Phone increased Ram 512 and built in features ( Skype , Opera etc… ) also works well. camera isn’t that good it’s just good in light or day time else at night it reminds me of VGA camera back in 2002 when Nokia came up with Eye phone. I have answered almost all the guys those who have asked me questions about Noir A2 and Noir A5 but Qmobile people on the facebook and their website , no answer. it is because they are not even sure what they are selling, it is just coming from China getting packed here and sell it. none is technical or able to answer queries even their email is not valid which is mentioned on their website.
A2 is a rival or Explorer , after skype and processor which is actually faster than 1.7Ghz mentioned 1Ghz crosses the line of Samsung , HTC same specification phones, it would be stupidity to waste more money and get almost same or less features so I say Noir A2 is a best budget Android Phone available in Market. 8,800/- Rs.
Noir A5 :-
GPS makes it unique and the screen size, 3.7.5 almost 3.8 the size and the type is almost like Samsung Nexus 7 , Using ARMv6 it is capable of Yahoo Video Calling easily, Wifi works well, at a time can handle 10 to 15 apps running easily, this phone is a rival of Galaxy S1 ( anytime or T-mobile) just what it lacks from is , internal memory it doesn’t have that much as S1 does which makes it little bit limited personally I am using it and I have given Video Review of this phone on youtube and over here on my blog, in this budget buying a new phone is so far so good Rs: 10,600/- or 11k not sure , but if you are Gamer or wants to avail more apps than go for Galaxy S1 you may don’t get brand new but it has more internal memory else Noir A5 is perfect, again Camera is 5 MP but the result is not so good it’s very good in day time and at night thanks it has LED flash but not good enough for delightful snaps.
i have spoken with Qmobile customer service many times and asked them questions which visitors asked me NONE been answered by them most of the answer I had to search myself and explore and I thank all those visitors who gave their opinions after testing these phones.
Android Phones are rapidly changing , it would be foolishness to buy phones which were manufactured in 2011 like Explorer and WildFire s, ChaCha etc… buy the latest one or Qmobile or wait because you will see changes with in 2 , 3 months all the companies including Qmobile , HTC , Samsung , going to upgrade the phones and lower the price due to competition in market now, It doesn’t matter China or Africa what matters it quality and features, this time Qmobile came up with entirely different technology Android and they really shook the market.
Android Phones are good very friendly in internet usage but the worst part is if you lost your phone, you just didn’t lost your contacts but all the logins and passwords along with it, which ever app you were using like at start up it asks you Google login means Gmail , Picassa , Maps , Youtube etc.. all are gone too, beside it twitter , Facebook , Tumblr , Four square, etc.. first thing after using the phone RUN to the PC and change all the password before all your stuff is copied and gone in wrong hands, this is specially to ( Girls ” Female ” ) users , DO NOT use your actual ID on Google play store make new one random would be better. you can check email manually so it is not important to keep your phone logged in if you are sure you aren’t going anywhere , where you phone can be theft. you will be in trouble.
Overall my Remarks Qmobile is Good but Galaxy S-1 is better than Noir A2 and Noir 5 , the market price is 19k unused here in Pakistan it has 16 GB Internal Memory which is enough for apps to download and 16 GB SD supported you can extended it yourself, no need to ROOT the phone already you are getting enough and It has 1.2 Ghz processor Skype and all works perfectly fine. Android phones by 2013 will be more demanding due to low budget and more features. specially when you compare with Iphone which is non sense to me. paying 60k for the phone come on, black berry has lost it’s market totally useless to buy and doesn’t even have apps as Android does. Other companies are about to launch their phones even you will see phone cheaper than Qmobile in market Made in China but they’ll be totally crap no warranty no brand so stick up to Qmobile or go for Samsung Galaxy S1 / S2 or s-111 ( Gift me one 🙂
Rooting is yet not possible because I tried several ways even tried extending partition didn’t worked, maybe I don’t know how to do it properly, if anyone of you has done kindly email me your method I will post it here, firstname.lastname@example.org another thing please please please DO NOT THINK I AM one among Qmobile people here to answer all your question I am just another guy who is using and explored answering because i want to help out many of you written that I am from Qmobile and I am doing their marketing which is not true at all. Neither Qmobile officials has contacted me nor hired me and I don’t lie when they will I will inform you all, yet there’s nothing like this , if you want suggestion than email me with your budget and features you want I can suggest you phone which one to buy could be Qmobile or anyother branded but if it is about Qmobile than already lot of information and posts are out here, leave it for everyone to read I will reply ASAP.
Thanks to you all, it’s been a great time with you all sharing about Android special Qmobile ( LG ) phone.
