There are more and more companies without names that make smartphones on the market, and Poptel is one of them.
Poptel was founded in 2009, but as a manufacturer of smartphones, the brand began to exist only in 2018. Brand policy – smartphones for people who love an active lifestyle. That is, for athletes, extremists and other users.
As you can guess, we will focus on protected smartphones that are not afraid of dust, moisture, drops and bumps. We would like to make a choice of the best devices, but, unfortunately, the company managed to release only four smartphones. But there is nothing to do, we will analyze all available devices and start from the cheapest to the most expensive.
The first model is called the P8. In the protected smartphones immediately striking design. Here it is made simply, but with taste. The funny thing is there are three colors: black, yellow and green. And this color inserts from the back side, as seen in the photo.
Screen 5 inches, with a resolution of 960×480. The color rendition is average, but not bad for a protected smartphone. Two cameras: the main 8-megapixel and 5 megapixel front camera.
As for hardware, we have a MT6739 quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. The SIM card tray is hybrid, you can insert micro and nano SIM or micro sim + micro SD cards into it. USB flash drive supports up to 128 GB.
For security reasons, we were provided with a fingerprint scanner and unlocking the face. But the most important thing is IP68 protection. Of interest is also the NFC module for contactless payments. Otherwise, everything is trivial: on a non-removable 3750 mAh battery, there is no fast charging, the system is controlled by Android 8.1.
Next comes P10. This model is more interesting because the characteristics are much better than its predecessor.
Just go through the appearance: the body is made of aluminum and plastic, looks simple and beautiful, and most importantly – the color. With the colors the designers have done their best examples of all the colors in the photo below.
Inside is a Helio P23 processor, 8 cores, and a Mali-G71 graphics chip. 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal. Good iron, a sufficient amount of RAM, this is quite enough not very demanding user.
5.5 inch screen with 18:9 aspect ratio and Full HD resolution. The color reproduction is good, the colors are natural, in General it is a good display. Cameras are good. We have sensors from Sony, the main camera on 13 megapixels, and front on 8 megapixels.
Support 2 x nano sim, 3600 mAh battery, support NFC payment. According to the standard IP68 we have shock resistance and dust-moisture protection.
The conclusion is as follows: relatively thin (for a protected device) 11.9 mm thick, NFC, good and bright screen, good memory capacity, Android 8.1 on Board and a fingerprint scanner. The design is simple, there is a choice of colors, but upset the battery. This smartphone lacks a powerful battery, and in General the device is excellent. You can find a lot of reviews about it.
The price tag is 16500 rubles. On the Chinese online store it can be snatched for 230 dollars.
Поптел П9000 Макс
The turn came to P9000 Max, and it is even more interesting than the previous ones.
First-design. The smartphone looks brutal and aggressive, looks like a brick, like most analogs, and the variety of colors repeats the situation of the P8 model. Just different inserts. In addition to IP68 protection, we are provided with Mil-Spec 810G military standard protection. A wide strip near the camera is a flashlight. 5.5-inch screen, 16:9 aspect ratio, Gorilla Glass protection, multi-touch, Full HD resolution. Good screen, bright and has good color. The situation with memory is the same as in the previous model: 4 RAM and 64 internal. The main camera on the 13 megapixels Samsung front-facing 8 MP, makes a fairly decent selfie in good light.
Eight-core processor MT 6750T is responsible for the speed of the phone, and the eighth Android helps him.
But the sweetest thing in this instance-the battery. It is as much as 9000 mAh, supports fast charging, and it is enough for 30 hours of video content, 50 hours of talk and 45 days of standby. Fully charged in three and a half hours.
And the latest smartphone is the P60 model. The front looks very stylish, and the back side does not stand out. This smartphone does not want to dwell on something specific, so we will quickly describe all the features:
Eight-core processor Helio P23;
6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of memory;
Display with a matrix of IPS, 5.7 inches with a resolution of Full HD +;
16 megapixel main camera and 8 megapixel front panel;
5000 mAh battery, with support for fast charging;
NFC module, support for two SIM cards.
In general, the standard for a secure smartphone is set according to the IP68 standard, but the NFC module is good news.
