To be honest I wasn’t ready to switch from a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime phone to Q mobile Noir series phones but apparently I did. The reason being high end specs of Noir Z series while keeping the price range under 25K. The temptation of moving from a 1GB RAM smartphone that hangs, can’t run snapchat etc was way too high and eventually I had to surrender. Got a beautiful rose gold colored handset of QMobile NoirZ12 for less than 23K (the same price for which I’ve bought my previous Samsung Selfie phone) few months back.
Apparently I was tempted to buy this set because of its high end specs and price that no one else offers for such features. Did I regret? Its been 8 months now and I have no complaints so far. Here are the reasons to love my NoirZ12 phone.
The set comes with a 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM(expandable via SD card). Been using snapchat ever since I got this phone and the app never crashed(touch wood). Smooth Android experience so far. The only problem with SD card is that you have to sacrifice second SIM option as it allows either SIM 2 or SD card. I am not fond of double SIM phones so it doesn’t matter but it has been advertised as a dual SIM phone that’s why it is important to note that the option limits use of expandable memory. On the other hand 32GB internal memory is more than enough too. Do it’s a 50-50 kinda feature. Not to love or hate.
This is one thing that I am peculiar about in my smartphones. Q Mobile NoirZ12 has 13MP rear and 8MP front camera & it is kick ass one. You can click HDR images to panorama ones. The result is outstanding. Selfie camera is quite good too. 5/5 for the camera. You’ll love the results.
NoirZ12 comes with a 3000mAH battery and it can last for a whole day while using Internet on it. This is another plus of this pretty set that it has a great battery life. To charge it faster, open extreme mode and you’ll save time on charging too.
Color and appearance
Rose gold color of NoirZ12 makes it stand out from other sets of the brand. Loved the sleek and thin look of it. My blogger friends were surprised that its not an iPhone lol. The rise gold color and finishing of the set makes it look a lot like iPhone. The hands free of the set comes in Rose gold color too. So fancy.
The phone Heats up sometimes when it was new. After a month or so it stopped behaving like that. Thank God.
USB Charger is not universal(it is a bit wider & has a flat pin). You need to get your own charging cable unlike other smartphones which can be charged with any other smartphone’s cable.
Dual SIM card restricts the use of SD card.
I just loved this phone. It is the best one in this price range out there.
