THL 4000 - Design and Materials

Il THL 4000 is characterized by a compact and robust design, with a generous thickness that makes room for the aforementioned battery from 4000 mAh.

As already said in unboxing, the weight of 184.5 g is well distributed along the profile of the device and this allows a comfortable one-handed use, as well as an excellent grip even with sweaty or wet hands. The back-cover is made of solid plastic with a three-dimensional texture that improves its grip.

Going to analyze the profile of the device we can see that:

On the right side we find the volume rocker and the on / off button inserted along a silver livery that covers the profile of the device

THL 4000 - Display

THL 4000

Il THL 4000 mount a display from 4.7 inches with qHD resolution. From our tests, the mounted panel turned out to be of good quality.

La color rendering it is of a good level, with blacks tending slightly to gray and white tending to yellow. The viewing anglesinstead, they are not perfect and this negatively affects the overall quality of the reproduced contents.

Il sample that we tested suffers from a very serious bug, namely the total dimming of the display with only the backlight working. This bug occurs after intense sessions of continuous use of the terminal, especially in moments of high CPU load. We do not know if this problem is a defect of our sample or a widespread problem in this model.

Il touch screenfinally, it is perfect with excellent sensitivity and reception of the words typed (even if quickly).

THL 4000 - Audio compartment

Il THL 4000 It is characterized by a single speaker placed at the bottom of the back-cover. The audio played is by good level although the absence of bass is almost complete in both system sounds and reproduced multimedia contents.

Very good audio in headset capsule in call as well as the speakerphone which, however, tends to croaking at maximum volume.

Il microphoneon the other hand, it turned out to be slightly less performing than the competitor's solutions, making communication with interlocutors in crowded and noisy places difficult.

THL 4000 - Camera

THL 4000

Il THL 4000 mounts a rear sensor from 5 mp with LED Flash which, in good light conditions, makes shots of good quality. Some problems in the focus, especially of the macro, which in some cases involves the repetition of the shot to obtain an acceptable result. definitely night shots are enough where Flash LED fatigue ad uniformly illuminate the scene and the shot, even stabilizing the grip to the maximum, results moved and full of digital noise.

THL 4000 - Internal storage

Il THL 4000 is characterized by an internal storage of 8 GB divided into two distinct partitions. The first partition, dedicated to the installation of applications, is of 1.97 GB while the second one, dedicated to user memory and then to saving photos, videos and other files, of 4.17 GB.

It is possible to move applications on tab microSD up to a maximum of 32 GB external.

THL 4000 - Performance and Benchmark

Il THL 4000 It is characterized by a processor quad-core Mediatek MT6582 to 1.3 GHz clock combined with 1 GB of RAM.

Given the resolution and the size of the display, the processor behaves very well in the management of social applications as well as in web browsing.

We have tested web browsing both via AOSP browser pre-installed both on Google Chrome.
Il Stock browser offers a web browsing a bit breezy with numerous micro lag in the rendering phases and in the pinch-to-zoom until complete loading.

using Google Chromeon the other hand, many of the micro lag disappear, making navigation more fluid and pleasant, both on mobile sites and on heavier portals.

THL 4000

We have tested the THL 4000 with several operators (Vodafone, Wind and TIM) obtaining almost all the same results.

Signal reception is quite good, in line with other devices in the same price range, both in terms of stability and navigation speed.

We have tested the GPS in navigation getting mixed results especially in relation to fix accuracy. Once the satellites are hooked (about 1 minute at the first fix), the THL 4000 it keeps the navigation stable until it arrives at its destination, albeit with a sometimes very near precision.

This results, for example, in a difficulty in the management of the motorway exits or in the turns along the city streets, both using Google Maps that other paid applications.

Also, using fitness apps like Runtastic, Google Fit and Runkeeper we have encountered the same problems in the collection and processing of distance data as well as the route actually used.

No problem, however, with the WiFi which proved to be stable and fast in navigation even in "shady areas" where some terminals do not usually hook the signal.

Finally, no problem with the Bluetooth, both in pairing with wireless headphones tested both in file transfer.

THL 4000 - Battery

THL 4000

We have carried out extensive tests to evaluate the actual battery capacity from well 4000 mAh mounted on THL 4000. With an average use, the terminal guaranteed us Orders shipped to Europe of use with approx 7 hours and minutes 45 di screen lit..

Stress tests were carried out using the application HD battery present on Play Store.

The test is divided into 3 parts:

  • Music reproduction
  • Video playback (short and long duration)
  • Web browsing (short and long duration)

The tests a short term let you check what percentage of battery consumed by the function in question.

The tests a long duration instead they allow us to check how long the terminal takes to consume the 50% of the battery.

The results of our tests are visible in the images below, compared to the same ones performed on the Doogee Titans 2 which, we remember, also mounts a battery from 4000 mAh:

Finally we propose the result of the stress test carried out through Antutu Benchmark with the relative comparison with other devices:
