Vernee Mars Pro, Another Cheap Smartphone With Nice Specs But Suffers In Camera Quality

There are different categories of cheap smartphone, there are the very cheap ones for people who wants to get their hands on a smartphone for a small fee. There is also the smartphone with a decent amount of specs for a reasonably cheap price. And lastly, is the category of smartphones with an impressive spec sheet an alternative to high-end smartphones at a relatively cheap price. The Vernee Mars Pro falls in the last category with a powerful hardware set up but like other smartphones falls short in the camera department.

Vernee is Chinese smartphone company which is quite unpopular in this side of the world and like most Chinese smartphone rands offers budget-friendly devices. Vernee Mars Pro has mouth-watering specs and a nice build and has come a long way from last year’s Vernee Mars smartphone. Let’s take a look at what it offers.

DESIGN AND DISPLAY

When it comes to looks and build the Vernee Mars Pro does not fail, the device has a nice slim and stylish design. The device has a few compromises but it is surely no in the design department. The device has a dimension of 151 x73 x 7.6 mm and a very acceptable weight of 161g. The combination of its slimness and decent weight translates to a smartphone that can be easily handled.

Unlike recent trends mostly by Chinese OEMs, the Vernee Mars Pro has a single front and rear camera with a dual flash light. The smartphone has a 360 degree sandblasted metal casing with plastic antenna line on at the top and bottom. Talking about the bottom of the device there is a USB Type C which is pretty much the recent USB port that is used in smartphones nowadays, a microphone and a single loudspeaker. On the right side, in addition to the volume rocker and power button you have the fingerprint scanner just below the power button. At the opposite side is the dual sim tray for a Nano an Micro sim and a microSD slot. At the top, you still have a 3.5mm audio jack and an overall well built device.

A Quad HD is pretty much the display that is in vogue of recent, however, a FHD display is not bad either. The Vernee Mars Pro has a 5.5-inch 1080p display with a 2.5d Corning Gorilla Glass for protection. The slim side bezels and 1500 : 1 contrast screen ensures pleasurable viewing experience.

CPU, OS AND STORAGE

Vernee Mars Pro is equipped with one of MediaTek’s latest Soc with an Helio P25 octa core processing chip and a Mali T880 MP2 GPU for handling games. Am glad to tell you that Vernee Mars Pro is one of this year’s  cheapest 6GB RAM smartphone alongside a 64GB ROM for storage. Also, there is an Android 7.0 Nougat OS which hopefully will soon be upgradable to the more recent Oreo OS.

CAMERA AND BATTERY

Believe me when I say all cheap smartphone has their own compromise and the Vernee Mars Pro is its camera. The rear camera stands at 8MP interpolated to 13MP and front camera 2MP interpolated to 5MP. The battery is a decent 3500mAh with quick charge technology.
