THL 2015, the review of GizChina.it!
The complete specifications of the THL 2015
As already briefly anticipated, the terminal subject of today's review is the Top of the range of the company, a smartphone with very interesting technical characteristics. On the device we find, in fact, a processor octa-core MTK6752 with maximum clock a 1.7 GHz, flanked by Ram 2GB e 16GB of internal memory expandable via Micro Sd.
The display installed on the THL 2015 is a diagonal unit from 5 inches and resolution FullHD 1920 x 1080 pixels, while the photographic sector consists of a main camera that performs very well 13 mega-pixels and a front 8 mega-pixels for excellent "Selfie" photos.
Among the goodies of the device we find, on the back, a fingerprint reader through which it is possible to unlock the device and perform some security features. From the software point of view, on THL 2015 we find a ROM based on Android 4.4.4 Kitkat slightly revised by the company in the interface.
The dimensions of the device are of 155 x 76 x 9.2 mm for a total weight, battery from 2700 mAh removable including, of 143 grams.
The THL 2015 is also equipped with dual SIM-dual stand-by (one micro and the other in standard format) dual 4G LTE (TD-LTE + FDD-LTE global) between which you can run a switch to hot via software.
The connectivity support is completed by the Wi-Fi b / g / n, the Wi-Fi hotspot, the Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS.
THL 2015 - Design and structure
THL 2015 is characterized by a design that I would define "classic" and not particularly original. The front is quite anonymous and in fact does not have any type of customization or logo; at the bottom, however, we find the 3 soft-touch keys characterized by a very low backlight level, while at the top right the aforementioned 8 mega-pixel front camera.
The left side is instead completely "clean".
The back is characterized by a removable back cover, the main camera from 13 mega-pixels with opening F / 2.0 and single LED flash, the fingerprint reader, the THL logo and finally, in the lower part, the system speaker.
Top with 3.5mm jack input and micro USB 2.0 slot.
THL 2015 - 5-inch Full HD display
The THL 2015 features a 5-inch IPS panel with Full HD 1920 x 080 pixels resolution, which translates into a whopping 441 PPI. The chromatic fidelity of this display is very good, with the exception of black, which highlights the classic IPS toning and white, slightly tending to pink.
Very good brightness and reading of the contents even in direct sunlight; from this point of view, the brightness sensor proved to be very reactive on every occasion.
THL 2015 - Software
As already mentioned in the introduction, on THL 2015 we find a ROM based on Android 4.4.4 KitKat, in the "semi-stock" version, as it is characterized by a slight customization intervention operated by the house and detectable in particular in the icons and wallpapers package. As already seen in previous reviews, this version of the Android OS turns out to be very stable and characterized by high overall performance.
From this point of view, therefore, the absence of the update to Lollipop (which in any case should not be late) is not necessarily seen as something negative.
In general, the interface moves very smoothly, there are very few lags - even when we open many applications - and the settings menu is easy to use.
The function is to be reported Multitasking Window thanks to which we could have a pop-up on our displa that will allow us, through interactive boxes, to have quick access to messages, music, videos and notes.
THL 2015 - Performance and benchmark
The hardware specifications of the THN 2015 allow the device to achieve discrete results in benchmark tests. The octa-core Soc Mediatek MT6752L, the Mali-T760 MP2 ARM GPU and the Ram 2GB guarantee a good fluidity in every area of use. Following are the results obtained by the THN 2015 in the various benchmark tests performed.
Both in the execution of the benchmark tests and in the gaming activities the device did not show excessively high temperatures nor, much less, battery drain.
THL 2015 - Photos and Videos
Many times we have come across smartphones that, if on the one hand they were characterized by good specifications and performance, on the other they sinned in the photographic sector; this is absolutely not the case with THL 2015.
The main camera of the device, in fact, with its sensor 13 mega-pixel (with software interpolation up to a maximum of 18 mega-pixel) and a focal aperture of 2.0 allows you to get good quality shots, even in conditions of low light.
The focus is quick and the interface, including settings, is easy to use.
Inside the camera we also find the possibility to choose the graphic effects before making our shot and displayed "live" on the display (B / W, sepia, blackboard, poster, etc. ..).
Sufficient, however, the video recording at a maximum resolution FullHD 30 FPS, from which it was reasonable to expect a little more, especially given the good photographic quality of the sensor.
THL 2015 - Reception and telephone part
In these days of testing, the 2015 THL showed good performance also in the telephone sector. The dialer features a Stock interface, with quick search in the phone book.
In general, the telephone reception is good, even if the passage between the various networks is not very fast. Positive note regarding 4G / 3G connectivity on both SIM cards, as it is possible to perform a hot switch between the two cards via software.
The audio in the capsule is clear and no problems were detected by the interlocutors during the various conversations made.
THL 2015 - Battery
As anticipated in the introduction, under the removable body of the THL 2015 we find a battery from 2700 mAh, a unit characterized by a relatively "average" autonomy for a dual SIM device, thanks to which you will be able to arrive in the evening (with a use bland) with about 2 hours of display on.
However, with heavy use - always with both SIM - it will be difficult to overcome the early hours of the afternoon. Autonomy, therefore, not fully promoted.
THL 2015 - Final considerations
In conclusion, this THL 2015 impressed us mainly for two reasons:
- First of all for the price, as for less than 250 euros it will be possible to buy a device that in terms of hardware and general performance is a real top of the range;
- Secondly, the excellent construction and perfect assembly, which make the THL 2015 a “nice solid brick”, not very original in design, but still characterized by a refined back cover and good general handling.
The aspects to be reviewed concern the unlocking through the fingerprint sensor (very often not recognized), the battery life and, finally, the low level of the backlighting of the soft-touch keys.
In closing I remind you that the THL 2015 is available on Teknistore.com at a discounted price thanks to the voucher GIZTH25.
