The QMobile Noir A6 was created, keeping the low-budget consumer in mind; at the same time, knowing what they want and not just, what they can afford. The Noir A6 is the remarkable outcome of that thinking. It features a fast 1 GHz processor with 512MB RAM to accompany it. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, giving the user access to countless apps and games through Google Play Store. There are two things that make this phone stand out from the competition (in the same price range), its 4” display and the 5MP shooter with LED flash. The bigger display ensures high quality gaming, viewing of multimedia content and more. The camera on this phone is easily adept at capturing great photos, making those everyday as well as those very special moments, unforgettable. The front facing camera, on the other hand, helps the user create such moments, when used with apps like Hangouts and Skype. This phone is, nonetheless, the best in this price range, and what follows, proves this claim!
The QMobile Noir A6 has a lot to show and offer, considering the incredibly low price it comes at. At the heart of the phone lies a 1 GHz processor, which is enough power to do pretty much everything one does with their phone. It has 4GB of internal storage (ROM) and 512MB RAM. At any point, if the storage capacity is low, external storage can be used, through the micro SD card slot. This phone has a 5MP rear camera with LED flash, and a front facing Smart Camera, both of which make for a great communicating and shooting experience for the user. The rear camera is capable of recording videos as well. Like almost every other QMobile phone, smart or not, the Noir A6 has Dual SIM functionality too; in the time of need, it can prove to be convenient. When it comes to connectivity, the Noir A6 has got you covered. With built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and GPRS/EDGE, there are no boundaries to what this phone can do for you and how it can connect you with the rest of the world, in general. Talking about keeping the user connected, this phone has a battery of 1,600mAh that should easily be able to pull through 8-10 hours of continuous usage.
Starting from the screen, there are no physical buttons in sight, only the three capacitive keys are located below. Above the screen, there is the speaker grille (for calls) and the front facing camera is situated right next to it. The microphone is located on the border, below the back key.
On the back of the phone, there is the 5MP camera with LED flash, to the top left. The bottom left houses the main speaker grille with the QMobile branding just above it, but a little more in the center.
The power button, the micro USB port and the headphone jack are located on the top side of the handset. The volume rocker is on the left side, and that is about it.
The QMobile Noir A6 is not behind in the software department either. It runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Android 4.0 brings many improvements and a redesign as opposed to Android 2.3. Having a more recent OS means having access to even more and even newer apps and games; since more will be compatible with it.
One of the main features of Android that makes it extraordinary is the integration with Google’s apps and services. You can receive and send emails through Gmail, keep notes using Google Keep, connect with friends and family on Google+, store and create documents on Google Drive, and watch your favorite content on YouTube, and the list goes on. The best thing about this integration is that all your data and activity is backed up to your Google account. Therefore, if you ever purchase a new smartphone, all you need to do is set up your Google account and the phone will be instantaneously yours!
The rom of the Noir A6 has apparently been tweaked and customized by QMobile, giving it a more Firefox OS kind of look. A different look or not, it is Android, which guarantees that your experience with this phone will be satisfactory.
The QMobile Noir A6 offers impressive specs at a low price, which is what makes it distinctive. It has 4” WVGA display, large enough to give a great viewing experience and small enough for comfortable use. It packs a great 5MP camera with LED flash. If those specs do not lure you away from another phone (in this range), we just don’t know what will!
