You want low priced phones? Fero is a sure bet. Do you also want the high priced ones? They do not disappoint in the area too. While we have reviewed the FERO ROYALE A1 and the FERO IRIS smartphone, we are now going to cast our review torch on the FERO A4001 (Aura 4001). An it is important to note before hand that this smartphone is a low priced one.
Out of the aforementioned smartphones ( the Royale A1 and the Iris phone), the more similar one to the FERO A4001 is the Iris smartphone given their similar rather not too high specs targeted at low power users – users who do not overuse their phones. Just stay with me as I walk you through the specifications of the FERO A40001 smartphone.
DISPLAY OF THE FERO AURA 4001 SMARTPHONE
The Fero A4001 comes with a compact 4-inch display size. Its display is made with IPS panels and has a resolution of 480 * 800 pixels. A 4 inch display screen isn’t too effective if watching movies and playing games are to of your priority. To experience a maximum experience on these two activities, you night need a size of 5.2 inches and above.
Talking about the resolution too, the above pixels might translate into a not too good display which might not be the perfect fit too for the aforementioned activities. It is an IPS Capacitive touchscreen, with 16M colors.
DESIGN OF THE FERO AURA 4001 SMARTPHONE
On its measurememts, the FERO A4001 is as thick as 10 millimetres and weighs 110 grammes. I am impressed by how many grams it weighs, as the phone is everything far from heavey. But then, what do you expect from a 4.0 inch device. Lesser weight right? The only other thing that might not meet some people’s set specifications is the thickness. A 10 mm phone might seem too thick for some (most) people’s liking.
The FERO Aura 4001 is built with Plastic, while it comes with a metallic back panel and different colors variants (Champagne Gold & Metallic Black).
RAM, ROM, PROCESSOR AND OPERATING SYSTEM OF THE FERO AURA 4001
The Aura 4001 is powered by a Quad-core Spreadtrum SC7731C processor with a clock speed of 1.2GHz. It has 512 MB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 32 GB using its dedicated micro SD card slot.
Putting in absolute consideration the RAM size, I would say that the FERO Aura 4001 was definitely not made for heavy users – that is people who use their phone continuously, switching in between apps and so on. If it was, it would absolutely give a very tiring experience. But then, not to heavy users might find the phone to their liking.
For the storage of photos, videos, documents, files and many others, just as mentioned above, an 8 GB internal memory has been provided which is open to expansion with the help of a micro SD card, to the tune of 32 GB.
The FERO Aura 4001 runs on an android operating system, v6.0 Marshmallow.
FERO AURA 4001 SMARTPHONE CAMERA
Fero Aura 4001 sports a 2MP camera which also comes with a LED flash at the rear, while its VGA front camera would enable you to take selfie and Skype, with many other uses of a front facing camera.
FERO AURA 4001 BATTERY
The A4001 packs a 1300mAh Li-ion battery which can be removed as you’ve probably guessed. As I had earlier noted in the introduction, the FERO Aura 4001 smartphone didn’t have heavy users in mind during its production.
This battery capacity would surely not serve a heavy user as much as anyone of them would want it to. Rather, it has been streamlined and its specifics designed to accommodates more interests from light users. But still, I sincerely think they should have been able to get it up to 2000 mAh. This one wouldn’t be too encouraging to patronage.
One very important thing that smartphone users look out for when they want to buy any device is the battery life. Everyone desires a smartphone that can last forever when it has been charged once. But then, FERO Aura 4001 isn’t up to par in the aspect.
PRICE OF THE FERO AURA 4001 SMARTPHONE
Currently, the FERO Aura 4001 sells for around N21,000. First, I think this is a cool price as you can barely get an android phone at N20,000 nowadays. It is expected to compete favorably with its ‘peer phones’ at the price. I envisaged a price like this while I was checking out the specs of the phone. It is a perfect fit.
