Are you looking for a cheap but reliable smartphone? If the answer is yes, then the H828 smartphone could be perfect for you. This upcoming smartphone will be released at the end of the month and it’s decent if an entry-level device is what you are looking for. The offering is simple, a 3G smartphone based on Android 5.1, which comes to the market with an affordable price. Consider this smartphone as an option if you are interested in a low-end device that offers solid features for the lowest price possible.
Now let’s get into the details briefly, shall we? The H828 features a 5.0-inch QHD screen and has an MTK6580 SoC inside, this chipset counts with a Quad Core CPU and a Mali400 GPU. The system has 1GB of RAM plus 8GB of ROM. Android 5.1 Lollipop is the chosen OS for this smartphone and also comes with a special feature: Smart wake-up. The connectivity options are the usual, 2G, 3G, GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It has two cameras, which have an 8.0MP resolution and support several interesting features.
This phone is powered by an 1800mAh battery and comes in three different color presentations.
The H828 has a plastic construction and a compact design, the style is pretty simple and straightforward but it’s not ugly, just average. The body is only 0.8 cm (0.31 inches) thick and has the average sizes for a 5.0-inch smartphone. These are the actual dimensions if you feel curious: 5.75 x 2.89 x 0.31 inches. Additionally, the device barely weighs 0.129Kg and has a protective frame around the body.
On the front side, we won’t find any physical buttons, only a microphone and the frontal speaker and camera.
On the right side, you can find the power and volume buttons. On the rear, you’ll see the main camera, a sensor and a loud speaker.
The H828 features 3 color presentations: Golden, Pink, and White.
The display has a size of 5.0 inches and supports a 960 x 540 (qHD) resolution, as you can imagine it’s an IPS capacitive screen. The screen isn’t too surprising, but its resolution is enough to provide a decent quality picture, suitable for enjoying videos, pictures, and movies with acceptable quality. If you’re looking for a better display then you should look elsewhere, because it’s hard to beat that offer in this price range.
The H828 features an MTK6580 SoC (system on a chip), which is fairly common on low-end devices, but quite efficient and balanced. This SoC comes with an ARM Cortex-A7 Quad Core CPU that runs at 1.3GHz of clock frequency. However, it doesn’t matter how basic these specifications may seem to you, this smartphone is an entry-level device meant to perform basic activities, run daily apps and play basic Android games. As long as you use it for those purposes you shouldn’t feel the limitations of the basic hardware.
The GPU that comes along is an ARM Mali-400MP. Despite being the most basic version of said family, the Mali-400 delivers a great visual quality on any mobile device. Playing videos and movies it’s an easy task for this GPU. You’ll also be able of playing the most common Android games on this smartphone.
OS and Software
The H828 runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop and has a custom skin provided by the manufacturer.
It’s important to point out that the H828 features Smart wake up functionalities. This feature utilizes sleep tracking to determine in which sleep phase you are at the moment and allows you to set a window or a time period in which you’d like to be woken up once it is the right moment. So, a cool addition that can help you to start your day.
When it comes to memory the H828 certainly falls short in every aspect, it only features 1GB of RAM (less than that) and 8GB of ROM. However, the internal storage can be expanded up to 32GB via SD-card.
The device offers the usual connectivity, nothing out of the extraordinary. It has Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth 3.0. Sadly, this smartphone only supports 2G and 3G networks. Refer to the list below for checking the supported frequencies.
The H828 supports dual-SIM and standby mode like any other current smartphone.
Cameras and battery
There are two cameras and both have an 8.0MP resolution, which is nice since usually, the frontal camera features a lower resolution. They have the following features: Face Beauty, Face Detection, and Smile Capture.
The H828 is powered by an 1800mAh battery, which for a device like this should be enough to deliver a day of regular usage. Keep in mind that the screen resolution isn’t precisely high.
