Mstar S700 Review




The Mstar S700 phone is a phone that doesn’t follow the regular trend of Chinese smart phones simply because it has Mtouch type finger print sensor and that’s a good thing.

Design

The phone was made to be impeccable and crafted in 193 precision processes. The phone looks a bit generic but it has chamfered metal edges to give the device some style while some other part of the phone that are non-chamfered are coated in matte grey and you are less likely to have the phone falling off since it has a pretty firm grip.

Display

The screen size is 5.5″ and is of a 720p resolution. However, I heard folks complain that it has a blue tinted screen and I think it is to reduce the radiation level but I’m sure you can use some software to counteract this. The displays clarity is at 401 PPI and that is highly precise.

The IPS OGS technology of the phone means that the display will not drain the battery too much.

Hardware and Storage

The phone is pretty powerful for the price tag. It uses a 64-bit MTK6752 Octa Core processor that is clocked at 1.7GHz and that is a rally big deal. The GPU is a 700MHz Mali T-760 that means that the visual feel is very crisp.

The RAM is 2GB and the internal storage is 16GB. There is room for a microSD and this means that you can hold lots of data.

The phone is a dual sim phone that is 4G enabled.

The battery is 300mAh and also fast charging.



Camera and OS

The camera has a 13MP back camera that Mstar says is as good as a SLR camera. The camera actually pops out a bit and has half second auto-focus system. The camera captures 5% more dynamic range as well as 50% more dark detail.

The front camera is 5MP that has an outstanding smart beauty and intelligent face identification functionality that will bring the best out of your selfies for a 5MP camera.

The stock Android 5.0 OS that it ship with has been stripped of some functionality but nothing to worry about it’s not anything that is major but will most likely be fixed with an update.

Add Ons

The fingerprint sensor of the phone is actually under the back camera and you need barely touch it for it to respond as it does actually respond in a maximum of one second. The accuracy of the fingerprint sensor is 508 DPI and it can scan fingerprint from different angles. What’s more, the fingerprint sensor can also be used to authenticate payments on the phone.

On Point Rating

The phone is great for the price but the slightly-blueish screen is not something that I find impressive which is probably the only downside but no big deal it’s still great value for money


The OPR of the phone is at 7.85
