It is worth paying attention to the fact that the device is not aimed at the mass audience, and therefore Yandex.Phone is presented in only one color version – black. The body is metal and does not overflow the light in any way. The back panel is very brand and leaves on itself divorces and fingerprints, and therefore it is best to use it in the case, or constantly wipe it.
The case is not included, but it can be ordered. Overall it is quite high quality and can make the device bright.
With dimensions of 150.1 x 72.5 x 8.28 mm, the smartphone sits very well in the hand. Due to the small weight (163 grams), the hand brush does not tire after long work with the smartphone.
As for the fingerprint scanner, it’s fast enough, but sometimes hangs. Especially it becomes noticeable in the cold. Wet fingers can’t recognize.
The location of the buttons is standard – the power button and the volume control are on the right side. There is a port for wired headphones 3.5 mm, as well as a port for charging and transferring files – USB Type-C.
front camera has only 5 MP. The manufacturer added flash, but there are no additional effects. There is no autofocus and blur of the background, and therefore the quality of the received photos is very low – there are noises, unnecessary shadows and rays.
The main camera is represented by two lenses. The first has 16 MP, the second has 5 MP. The second lens at the start of sales was disabled.
By the price category for comparison to Yandex.Phone is suitable Huawei Mate 20 Lite, and the second model for almost all parameters is better. The Yandex smartphone has a narrow palette of colors, while constantly “walking” the focus. The photos turn out very “soapy” and dark. Overall the camera is mediocre enough and can’t boast its chips or good execution.
Meizu X8 costs almost as much, with the quality of photos changing coordinatively. It feels that Yandex.Phone has a fully copied module from the device worth 2-3 thousand rubles.
Videos on this device can be shot in maximum Full HD (1080p) quality at 30 frames per second.
Yandex.Phone runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 eight-core processor in conjunction with the Adreno 508 GPU. RAM is 4 GB, internal memory is 64 GB. MicroSD memory card up to 128 GB is supported.
Battery capacity – 3050 mAh. This will be enough for a day with active use of the smartphone. There’s a quick charging mode, with which you can charge your phone up to 50 percent in just 35 to 40 minutes.
