As its flagship device so how can QMobile will do any bad choice regarding its memory section. The internal storage of QMobile A1 is 64GB which is more than enough for normal usage.
If you want to extend your memory than you can extend it up to 256GB with the help of memory card. This is high spec device so big size games and videos will not make any issue.
The QMobile A1 has another excellent feature of 4GB RAM which is considered as the best one in smartphones specification. High-resolution games even 3D games and videos have no lag or any kind of delay during running on this smart phone.
QMobile A1 is packed with non-removable battery Li-Ion 4140 mAh which is present inside the fixed back cover. It comes with 2.0A charger which will quickly charge your device.
The device is carried with 8 cores so it will not make any issue for videos and games. High resolutions with full brightness can drain the battery quickly as well as the use of mobile data can also decrease the battery power.
The QMobile A1 is properly equipped with every connectivity. It supports all the bands of Pakistan in 3G and 4G connectivity. The speed limit over LTE network or 3G network is cat.4 450/50 Mbps.
The USB type for charging and data transfer is miroUSB v2.0, same like most of the other smart phones. Wi-Fi works at v802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth is 4.0.
We have dual sim option available in the device. The sim jacket has the option of Nano and micro sim, if we want to use memory card then we can use only one sim as another sim place will work as a memory card.
The QMobile A1 runs a latest Android version 7.0(Nougat). The device has a beautiful display and everything is going well with screen size and features.
The home button has two purposes; one its home button and second its fingerprint reader. The fingerprint reader is quick and accurate, it recognizes a finger under a second which is considered as fast one. You just have to place your finger at home button and it will read it in seconds.
The interface is same as like QMobile other devices only a few features have been changed. It doesn’t have application drawer just a home slider is available for applications. You have to swipe left and right to change the slider and select your desired application.
They should have search bar application slider via which we could directly access the application, it would be difficult when we will have too many applications.
The Quick settings are accessible by swiping up from bottom side whereas Notification area can access from the top side. The screen brightness slider and extreme power saving mode are also available in quick settings. Power saving mode can save your battery by giving access to only a few applications.
Theme Park is featured in this device. It has a collection of themes, wallpapers, dynamic, and clock. You can download your favorite themes and wallpapers and set them on your display screen.

The device has no hanging issue at all because it consists of 4GB RAM. QMobile A1 gets heat up while using the camera module that might be the issue of handling dual cameras. That was the reason that we were afraid of. Still, it’s not a big issue that affects the smartphones’ performance.
