The dimensions of the JiaYu F2 are 143,5 x 69,8 x 8,9 mm for a total weight, battery from 3000mAh extractable including, of 148 grams. A device that, considering the battery equipment, turns out to be quite light and, in particular, with a weight that seems to be well distributed over the entire surface.

In the rear part, characterized by a removable plastic back cover with a very pleasant texture to the touch (which will be available in different colors), we find the camera with sensor Sony CMOS from 8 mega-pixel equipped opening F / 2.0 e single flash LED.

JiaYu F2 - the complete specifications

In analyzing the hardware specifications of the JiaYu F2 I found an anomaly compared to what was officially declared by the company. In particular, the discrepancy concerning the processor's equipment emerged through an Antutu test and a check performed with the CPU-Z App.

The JiaYu F2, in fact, according to official specifications, should be equipped with a MT6582 quad-core chipset, while the above mentioned applications indicate the presence of an MT6592 octacore processor.

Of course I will try to clarify this aspect by asking for lights directly to the company.

Here are the "official" specifications of the JiaYu F2:

  • 5-inch display with HD resolution 1280 x 720 pixels;
  • 6582Ghz MT1.3 quad-core processor;
  • 2GB of RAM;
  • GPU Mali MP-450;
  • 16 of internal memory;
  • Sony rear camera from 8 mega-pixel;
  • front camera from 5 mega-pixels;
  • dual-SIM dual stand-by support with support for 4G LTE connectivity;
  • battery from 3000 mAh;
  • OS Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

JiaYu F2 - first impressions

Despite its low-cost device nature, the JiaYu F2 appears very well assembled. The smartphone is mainly made with plastic materials, which however - at first contact - seem to be well made.

The F2, in fact, appears to be a solid device with no constructive imperfections. Furthermore, the partially tapered shape of the edges of the back cover favors a good grip, further facilitated by the excellent grip that comes from the aforementioned presence of a perforated texture on it.

Obviously these are just my first impressions, which however I will investigate, as always, in the review.

On the JiaYu F2 we find a ROM based on 4.4.2 Android KitKat, but revised in the interface from the house. The UI is clearly inspired (not to say copied) from Oppo's Color OS.

From first impressions, the system generally seems very fluid and reactive and no lag or jamming emerged from the first uses.
