INOI 2 Lite 2019 is available in four colors: black and gold, with a matte soft-touch coating on the case and Purple Blue, Purple Green with a glossy IML layer. The previous model, INOI 2 Lite, was only available in two versions – black and gold. Of course, gradient colors look much more interesting and more expensive than their cost. This phone will attract young people and everyone who likes to stand out. In our review, we have a classic black model with a matte soft-touch wrap.
Comes with a smartphone:
- Removable 2250 mAh battery
- Branded charger and USB cable
- 1 year warranty
The smartphone looks sleek – smooth transitions, rounded edges and nothing more.
The manufacturer has equipped the device with a 5-inch screen with a 16: 9 aspect ratio with visible frames. Below are the buttons for controlling the main menu. Above are sensors for the front camera, speaker, light and proximity. On the upper edge is the headphone jack and micro-USB, on the lower edge is the speaker. The volume rocker and the lock button are to the right.
The smartphone is in a comfortable and secure hand. The matte surface creates a pleasant tactile sensation and, at the same time, protects against slipping and scratches. Another plus of the matte case – the fingerprints are almost invisible on it, so you can't even buy a case.
I was pleasantly surprised that, despite the price, the device was assembled efficiently – without gaps and ridges. The rear cover of INOI 2 Lite 2019 is removable, but its removal is so easy! In the bottom right corner, there is a finger groove, so you can try the lid, but even with it the lid didn't want to be removed. But the lid fits so firmly that the phone did not fly and did not stop separately, if it accidentally fell off the table, as is the case with gadgets similar to a removable battery.
Under the lid was a battery slot and three separate card slots: two for SIM and one for micro SD. By the way, for such budget smartphones, a separate memory card slot is a rarity, so here INOI 2 Lite 2019 was a pleasant surprise.
The smartphone has a budget TN matrix with a resolution of 854 × 480 pixels. For such a cheap model – predictable. At the same time, the pixels on the screen are almost invisible and the color rendering is not bad. Only, of course, the viewing angle is much worse. Well, these are the characteristics of the budget models, so you have to do it.
It's not very enjoyable to watch movies on INOI 2 Lite 2019, but you can watch videos on YouTube. The screen is sufficient for work activities: menu icons, text, images – all of which can be read.
The smartphone responds to the touch with a slight delay. But Android Go OS eliminates the lack of RAM. Android Go takes up less memory and delivers optimized applications from Google (Files Go, Gmail Go, MapsGo, AssistantGo), which are already pre-installed on your smartphone. Because of this, INOI 2 Lite 2019 runs smoothly and does not hang.
You cannot install many applications on a smartphone, because the built-in memory is only 8 GB, but you can put a 64 GB memory card – then it will fit much more. And you also have to constantly shut down unnecessary applications and tabs on the Internet, otherwise your phone will start to slow down.
As for the basic functions, for which the device itself is designed, everything works fine. The sound is good both in headphones and without. During the conversation, the speaker is perfectly audible – the sound is quite loud and clear. An incoming call is also heard even if the phone is in another room or bag. The sound speaker is installed on the bottom panel, so if your smartphone is on the table, the sound is not blocked.
Battery 2500 mAh The smartphone is charging pretty fast. During the test, the smartphone was fully charged in an hour and a half. It is sufficient for a full day of use.
In INOI 2 Lite 2019, the cameras are installed on a 5 megapixel and 2 megapixel main front camera, but for high quality photography, a smartphone at this price will not work by definition. The cameras are clearly for video calls and amateur photos / videos. You can photograph the text or something else important. There is virtually no stabilization in the cameras, so for good photos, you should be patient and completely frozen when you press the "delete" button. You can even see examples of photos.
INOI 2 Lite 2019 is a high quality assembly budget smartphone with minimal functionality for basic tasks. The smartphone is not intended for pretentious users, it may be the first device on the Android operating system. INOI 2 Lite 2019 for those who do not want to pay in excess for additional functions when you only need calls, internet and applications. I especially want to note the design – neat and concise. A smartphone looks much more expensive than its price. The matte case is very unusual, but pleasant to the touch – you literally don't want to let go of a smartphone.
INOI 2 Lite 2019 will be as popular as its predecessor? I think so. The smartphone proved to be an "amateur", but as shown by INOI 2 Lite sales in 2018, it found its audience. When, at the same price, the choice is between a button phone and a smartphone with the ability to download much broader applications and functionality, it is still more attractive to take a smartphone.
