If you are wondering what kind of phone the Innos D6000 is, here is the thing: we have being scouring the world of Chinese Android smartphones looking for the phones with the biggest battery capacity. And we stumbled on the Innos D600. The undisputed leader is still the Oukitel K10000 with its 1000mAh battery.
At 6000 mAh, the battery capacity of the Innos D6000 is also up there with the best. But there is a small caveat to this phone. It is the most expensive so far. Presently at Gearbest (that is one online store you will always see this awesome Chinese phones), the phone sells for about $240 dollars. The question that popped into my mind was: did little known Innos have so much pedigree it earned the right to sell the phone at that price?
A simple search took me to the Innos website to look over their array of phones. Surprisingly, it seems the D6000 is the first smartphone from them. So why is it so relatively costly. Maybe the specs would tell us the answer.
Dimensions, Display and Design
The Innos D6000 has dimensions of 144 x 72.2 x 11.9mm making it a rather thick phone compared to its peers. The display is 5.2 inch with a display resolution of 1020 x 1920 pixels. This 1080p smartphone is further enhanced by having a Full HD IPS display. So expect some excellent viewing angles and very sharp videos and pictures. The screen is also protected by corning Gorilla Glass 3. Not bad for a mid range budget phone.
Operating system, Processor, Memory and Storage
The Innos D6000 spots the Android 5.1 lollipop operating system. Let’s hope it is upgradeable to the latest Android 6.1 Marshmallow. Under the hood, the phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset with an octa-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz. Now I am beginning to see where the high cost comes from.
The phone memory too is outstanding at 3GB of RAM to comfortably handle all apps and system operations. This can smoothly handle multitasking. With an in-built storage of 32G, one should have all the space needed to store files. But, additional storage can be had with an external microSD card. Though Innos is not telling us by how much the storage can be expanded.
The camera specs too are not bad. The primary camera is rated at 16MP while the secondary camera is 5MP. But as we saw from the Samsung Galaxy S7, it is not about the pixels. Hopefully the OmniVision cameras used would prove excellent.
This is where the makers of the Innos D6000 sought to do something different. The 6000 mAh is a combination of two separate batteries in the phone. One of the batteries is a non-removeable 2480 mAh affair while the other one is a removable 3520 mAh battery. What this means is that you can remove one battery and the phone would still be working. Great right?!
Having looked at the specs, it is understandable that Innos are asking users to pay that much for an unknown brand. The Innos D6000 specs lies at a level almost comparable to the OnePlus One smartphone. And the best part is, it is far more cheaper than the OnePlus One.
So if you are willing to take punt on them, Gearbest can ship the phone over to you here in Nigeria.
