A few days back, we covered the newly announced ZOOZ N910F Note 4 Clone. The device came with decent specifications and it looked exactly like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. In fact the design was so similar to the Note 4 that if you didn’t turn on the display or see the logo on the back, you will most likely mistake it for the Note 4.
Like always, we managed to get the device in our hands recently which means we got to review and assess the performance of the device.
So, lets get on with it.
If you are looking for a phone which is like the Galaxy Note 4, the new ZOOZ N910F gets full points here. The dimensions of the device is exactly the same as the Note 4, 153.5mm x 78.6mm x 8.5mm. There’s a 5.7 inch display up front, above which lies the front camera and sensor. Below the display lies the standard Samsung home button.
Coming to the back, you have a 13MP sensor with a single LED flash. Below the flash is the ZOOZ logo and at the bottom lies the speaker grill.
The volume rocker keys and the power buttons are on the opposite sides. It features a power button on the right around the middle section (which is the ideal location for such a large phone), while the volume rockers keys lies on the top left corner of the device.
We were actually quite impressed with its design, the way ZOOZ managed to replicate the exact dimensions and design as the original Note 4.
Like the Note 4, you have a large 5.7 inch display on the front. However, unlike the design, the display is nothing like the Note 4. You get a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution on such a large screen which naturally translates into an average display. The pixel density of the screen comes to just about 257 pixels per inch, which is very low when compared to other devices in the market. So, for a large display like the Note 4, you will have to sacrifice on quality.
HARDWARE & PERFORMANCE
The device comes with a Mediatek MT6582 1.3GHz Quad Core processor along with 1GB RAM. For storage, you have 8GB which can be further expanded up to 32GB using a MicroSD card slot.
With these decent specifications, the device performs quite well. Apps opened up smoothly and we experienced little lag. So, the overall performance was satisfactory.
On the back, you get a 2,600 mAh battery which should have been more than enough, if it had been a regular sized smartphone. However, with the extra large 5.7 inch screen up front, the display will take a toll on its battery life. We didn’t get the opportunity to fully test its battery life, but we feel, with moderate usage it may just make it to the end of the day.
ZOOZ N910F comes with a 13Mp rear camera with LED flash. The device clicks decent pictures, but its no Sony sensor and you will know it immediately as the images sometimes come out unclear.
Still, for the price you pay, the rear camera and the 5MP front shooter can be used for your basic everyday camera needs.
Here’s a few shots we clicked with its camera. As you can see, the images look fine and colors too came out okay.
SOFTWARE & OTHER FEATURES
The ZOOZ N910F runs on Android 4.4 Kitkat out of the box. It also comes with some special features which makes it worthy of being called as the Note 4 clone.
The device comes with a pressure sensitive capacitive stylus called as the S Pen, a rarity in a device of its class. Further, you get a heart rate monitor and blood oxygen level indicator, sports pedometer and even an infrared remote control feature which works with majority of the devices at your home.
Then there are certain software features like double tap to light up the screen and simple gestures for turning pages in an e-book on the device without physical touch.
As for the connectivity features, you have Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.30+EDR, GPS/AGPS, USB 2.0 and FM Radio.
All in all, the ZOOZ N910F does have some special features to keep buyers interested.
The device is expected to sell for less than $140 which is a great price considering the features and specifications that comes loaded on this Note 4 Clone.
