Hello, Friends! Today, I’m going to take a look at GEOTEL Amigo review. GEOTEL is a relatively new smartphone company from China that produces cheap devices. The Amigo is one of the latest models, and it offers a lot of value for the price of just about 100 bucks. So, let’s find out-
The Geotel Amigo is one of those rare compact phones that has a 5.2-inch 720p display which is great. It’s sharp and vibrant for both indoor and outdoor use. The phone is made mostly of metal well except for the plastic top and bottom parts for antennas. The buttons do not rattle, and in general, I don’t have any companies about the build quality just about the display.
You have a 5-megapixel shooter which is coupled with the LED flash also there is LED notification light. On the bottom, you have the on-screen navigation keys.
As far as optics, you have a 13-megapixels camera and dual LED flash. The fingerprint scanner may not be the fastest out there. But it gets the job done and unlock the phone straight from the standby mode.
The loudspeaker is not going to impress you, but it’s decent for 100 dollars phone.
This smartphone can take some beautiful pictures in good lighting conditions. There is a right amount of detail the pictures look quite sharp, and in general, these are decent results from $100 phone. However, the camera just falls apart in low-light scenarios.
The selfie pictures look bad then you’ll find a hard time using it for social media. The front facing LED flash lets you take selfies at night. Well, don’t expect an excellent image quality but you may find it’s useful from time to time.
The 1080p video quality is just mediocre like on most of the ICHI phones. The selfie video quality is kind of terrible.
The device sports pretty good specs for the price. The phone ships with an Octa-Core MTK6753 chip which clocked at 1.3GHz, 3 gigabytes of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The gaming performance is not bad if you play the 3D games like Asphalt 8 on medium graphics. However, you should expect quite a few skipped frames if you switch the graphics settings to the maximum.
The Amigo ships with a stock original Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. Well, there are a few added features like gesture and motion controls that work pretty well. But what is the most important is that the phone is high-speed, fluid and responsive all the time, even after installing quite a few apps.
Now, talking about the connectivity, the call quality is above average, the WiFi works fine, and the GPS used for navigation. Although, it’s not the most accurate out there.
The 3000 milliamp hour battery performs quite well. I was able to get over five hours of screen on time which is a good result because I use the phone quite intensively.
The GEOTEL Amigo is a great phone for less than 120 dollars. Since it has a good build quality, decent specs, great display and good overall performance. Also, the main camera can take a decent image in daylight but it also part of the little light and the selfie camera is just bad. Personally here I want to suggest that if you don’t mind these shortcomings, the Amigo is an average smartphone for the price considering the overall package you get for less than $120.
