Camera and Bnchmark
Noir A500 overall is a great deal if u are low on budget it contain quadcore processor ,fwvga display 512 mb of ram
Build quality and display
Looking on its build quality it looks very cheap as body is made of plastic and it doen’t give much solid feeling while holding in hand and also its body is not much grippy.it has an fwvga lcd which i dont recomend as it has bad viewing angle and as for resoloution it has an fwvga resoloution which i think is average for that kind of set.
Games and apps perfomance
Talking about its perfomance its perfomance is quite good in low and medium end games and as for med-high end games it can run games like Dead trigger 2(on high),NFS MW etc with almost little lag.While games like real racing 3 crashes but are runnable at low fps by using some tweaks.I should not recomend it if u are setting expectation on high end games this phone cannot handle it.And for other apps it can run them without any lag.
Ram is a major factor here.Having 512 mb of ram it bottlenecks the cpu.Due to low rams sometime browser crashes also sometime source hungry games also crashes.The ram is responsible for not running high end games.When you switch back to home screen after running an app it lags.
Its internel memory is 4gb which is enough for apps in normal routine.It support upto 32gb of sd card which is a plus factor here.
Camera quality on this phone is quite bad especially if you are taking pic’s and making videos indoors or in low quality.It has 720p video recording which actually feels 480p.But if you are using camera in sufficient light it’s camera quality is good as bieng 5mp camera.
Noir A500 sound’s quality is quite good if u are using handsfree .It’s externel speaker is quite weak.
Talking about it’s support by Qmobile it doesn’t support ota mean if any update comes which usually dosent happen you have to go to service center for update.As bieng a Mtk phone mostly when new android version comes usually u have to wait a long time to get it on your phone.
As for development their is a lot of development going on incpak which include Rooting,Roms,recovery etc
