by Dimitris Economou 9

Vernee Apollo may have been announced many months ago, but it still hasn’t been released. Finally, after the long wait, the device will come to the market very soon. And Vernee has already started the reservations event. After nearly half year’s redesign and rescheduling, Vernee Apollo will be released as the world first MTK VR flagship smartphone.

  • Sony IMX230 is still a great sensor, but it must have a manual mode to fully be appreciated.
    I’ve done wanders in low-light photography with Honor 7(same sensor), thanks to the great manual mode.

      what is manual mode and how can a user like me , who has NOT much idea about

      photography, use it for ABSOLUTE KILLER PICS ?

      As I understand it you get a $50 discount if you pre-order the Apollo.

      But its not all about hardware of course, how often will the software be updated etc.. Vernee have a good track record in that aspect.
      I will hold my final judgment to I have seen a real review of the device. But so far I am very interested in it.

    The rumours say it would be priced at $ 399. So good news it was not the case. It think it can be a best seller for Vernee.

      don’t look forward that happens, it must be acceptable to us that get a high-end level device always at a very apparant low price, it’s not good to both customers and manufactures. we don’t need more junks to be released.

  • “DDR3” and “eMMC” are two keywords fit for a $200 mid-tier phone. At $299 you can get a lot more phone from other brands.
