INOI 2 Lite became the most popular model of the brand and the company decided to reassure him, creating INOI 2 Lite 2019, which came to us on the review. Today we will tell you the key differences inOi 2 Lite and Inoi 2 Lite 2019.

INOI 2 Lite 2019 is available in four coloring options: black and gold with matte soft-touch case coating and Purple Blue, Purple Green with glossy IML coating. The previous model, INOI 2 Lite, was produced only in two versions - black and gold. Of course, gradient colors look much more interesting and more expensive. Such a phone will like youth and everyone who loves to stand out. We also have a classic black model with a matte soft-touch coating.

Complete with a smartphone comes:

  • Removable battery 2250 mA * h
  • Charger and USB cable branded purple
  • Instructions
  • Warranty 1 year

The smartphone looks stylish - smooth transitions, rounded faces and nothing superfluous.

The manufacturer equipped the device with a 5-inch screen with a ratio of 16: 9 with a noticeable framework. Below are the main menu control buttons. From above - front camera, speaker, light sensors and approximation. On the top face, the headphone jack and micro-usb, on the bottom side - speaker. Volume swing and blocking button - right.

The smartphone lies in the hand comfortably and reliably. The matte surface creates pleasant tactile sensations and simultaneously protects from slipping and scratches. Another plus of the matte body is almost imperceptible fingerprints, so you can not even buy a cover.

It was pleasantly surprised that despite the price the device was assembled qualitatively - without gaps and creaks. The back cover at INOI 2 Lite 2019 is removable, but it's not easy to remove it! In the lower right corner there is a deepening for the finger so that you can pose the lid, but even the cover did not really want to be removed. But the lid adjacent so firmly that the phone did not scatter and did not turn off on separate parts with a random fall from the table, as it happens with similar gadgets with a removable battery.

, under the lid, a place was found for Batteries and three separate card connector: two for SIM and one for micro-SD. By the way, for such budgetary smartphones a separate slot under the memory card - a rarity, so that INOI 2 Lite 2019 was pleasantly surprised.

A budget TN matrix is ​​installed on the smartphone with a resolution of 854 × 480 points. For such a cheap model - predictable. At the same time, the pixels on the screen are almost not visible and the color rendition is not bad. Only, of course, at an angle, the review is much worse. Well, such are the features of budget models, so you have to accept.

Long watch movies on INOI 2 Lite 2019 is not very pleasant, but you can watch the video on YouTube. The screen is enough for work tasks: the menu icons, text, images are all readable.

On the touch, the smartphone reacts with a slight delay. But OS Android Go smoothes the lack of RAM. Android Go takes less memory and offers optimized applications from Google (Files Go, Gmail Go, Mapsgo, Assistantgo), which are already pre-installed on the smartphone. Due to this, Inoi 2 Lite 2019 works smoothly and does not hang.

Many applications on the smartphone, however, do not install - because the volume of the built-in memory is all 8 GB, but you can put a memory card for 64 GB - then it will fit much more. And you still need to constantly close unnecessary applications and tabs on the Internet, otherwise the phone will still begin to slow down.

As for the basic functions, for which the device itself and is conceived, everything works fine. The sound is good both in headphones and without. When conversing the interlocutor, it is perfectly audible - the sound is quite loud and clearer. The incoming call is also audible even if the phone is in another room or in the bag. Sound speaker is installed on the bottom panel, so if the smartphone lies on the table, the sound is not blocked.

Battery 2500 mA * h. The smartphone charges quite quickly. On the test, the smartphone was fully charged in an hour and a half. Enough for a whole day of use.

INOI 2 Lite 2019 has 5 MP rear and 2 MP front cameras, but for high-quality price, will not fit by definition. The cameras here are clearly for video communication and amateur photo / video. You can take a photo of the text or something else important. There is practically no stabilization in the cameras, so for good photos you should be patient and completely freeze at the moment you press the “take” button. You can see sample photos for yourself.

INOI 2 Lite 2019 — budget smartphone of high-quality assembly with minimal functionality for basic tasks. The smartphone is not for demanding users, perhaps as the first device on the Android OS. INOI 2 Lite 2019 is for those who do not want to overpay for extra features when they only need calls, Internet and applications. I would especially like to note the design - neat and concise. The smartphone looks much more expensive than its cost. The matte case is very unusual, but pleasant to the touch - you literally don’t want to let go of the smartphone.

Will INOI 2 Lite 2019 be as popular as its predecessor? I think yes. The smartphone turned out to be “an amateur”, but as the sales of INOI 2 Lite in 2018 showed, it found its audience. When the choice is between a feature phone and a smartphone with app downloads and much more functionality for the same price, it's still more tempting to get a smartphone.
