Fero is a brand relatively unknown to many smartphone users and enthusiasts in Nigeria, but to those who are in the know, it is a fact that the company makes good smartphones. Fero Mobiles has silently launched a new smartphone, the Fero Mega LTE Blue into the Nigerian market.
The Fero Mega LTE Blue is a mid-range Android smartphone whose specs make me quite sceptical about the device; it is lacking in some areas while it has the right mashup of specs in other areas.
Fero Mega LTE Blue Specifications, Review and Highlights
The Fero Mega LTE Blue, like many other standard android smartphones, comes with a 5.5-inch HD screen which has a pixel density of 267PPI and is protected with Dragontail Glass. Quite disappointingly, the smartphone has a plastic build, but this is probably to reduce its weight (160g) and thickness (8.8mm).
The Mega LTE Blue is powered by a Spreadtrum SC9832 processor with four Cortex A53 processing cores and a clock frequency of 1.3GHz, combined with a Mali-400 MP2 GPU which handles its graphics operations. It has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card.
The phone sports an 8MP autofocus camera at the rear with a LED flash which aids visibility in low-light conditions. The front of the smartphone is manned by a 5MP selfie shooter which is accompanied by a soft flash.
The Fero Mega LTE Blue packs a non-removable 2900mAh battery which discouraged me at first before I realised that it’s only 100mAh lower than the standard 3000mAh battery capacity of mid-range smartphones. It features a microUSB v2.0 port which possesses USB OTG functionality.
The Fero Mega LTE Blue packs a number of useful sensors like a gyroscope, compass and accelerometer, and it comes with a dual micro-SIM slot which supports 4G LTE networks. The phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
