The both cameras have excellent results in every way. Colors are beautifully used and features in camera are very easy and usable. Videos can be made in full high resolutions of 720 pixels. Let’s review the both cameras in detail.

Back Camera:

The rear camera is carried with 13 mega pixels and video HD support up to 720p. The back camera has amazing results in every sense from color schemes to brightness, everything just look perfect. It is accessible with flash light.

The interface of camera is very easy to use. It is divided into three layers, upper one has adjustable settings option while below we have modes option and click button. Video, face beauty, photo and ultra-pixel are the modes present on main camera screen.

Video camera has adjustable settings of Geo tagging, Anti- shaking, Microphone, scene mode, video quality and many more. Scene mode can adjust the lights automatically by providing the options of auto and night. We can adjust exposure setting manually also and white balance can also adjust with the options of cloud, day light, fluorescent and incandescent.

Face beauty camera enhances our beauty with the functions like smoother, whitening, slimming and eye enlarger. We have tested the QMobile CS1 back camera, results are very well. Pure colors are used and intake of pictures are very well. Pictures are not noisy at all and brightness is very well-managed.

Front Camera:

The front camera is featured with 8MP and flash light is accessible. Multi effects window is given in which Ash gray, Noir, Sofina, Vintage and many other effects are available. These effects are for those who likes to experiment with different shades of colors.

Front camera can make videos up to 720p quality. Many different modes are available like HDR, professional, smart scene, time-lapse, panorama, macro and many others. Ultra-pixel mode is not accessible for front camera.

The front camera is tested and results are extra ordinary. Sharp and bright colors are observed and you feel energy in your pictures especially in the selfie ones. Some images from front camera of QMobile CS1 are shared below:

Memory:

As it is high end device so how can QMobile will do any bad choice regarding its memory section. The internal storage of QMobile CS1 is 32GB which is more than enough for normal usage.

If you want to extend your memory than you can extend it up to 64GB with the help of memory card. This is high spec device so big size games and videos will not make any issue.

The QMobile CS1 has another excellent feature of 3GB RAM which is considered as the one of best one in smartphones specification these days. High resolution games even 3D games and videos has no lag or any kind of delay during running on this smart phone.

Network/Connectivity:

The QMobile CS1 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  v2.0, microUSB. Wi-Fi works at v802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth is 4.0.

We have dual sim option availability in the device. The sim jacket has option of Nano and micro sim, if we want to use memory card than we can use only one sim as other sim place will work as memory card.

Battery:

QMobile CS1 is packed with non-removable battery Li-Ion 3000 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 4 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 use of mobile data can also decrease the battery power.

Interface:

The QMobile CS1 runs a latest android version 7.0(Nougat). The device has beautiful display and everything is going well with screen size and features.

The interface is similar to QMobile other smart phones, only 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 much applications.

The Quick settings is accessible by swiping up from bottom side whereas Notification area can access from top side. The screen brightness slider and extreme power saving mode is also available in quick settings. Power saving mode can save your battery by giving access to only few applications.

Few bloat ware applications are installed like UC browser, my weather and some others. Back up and restore, QMobile care, phone assistant, one clean and some more applications are also available.

Processor:

QMobile CS1 has 1.4GHz processor which is based on the architecture of ARM-Cortex A53. Chipset of MT6737 is featured which also supports 720p HD displays, along with HD video recording and playback.

The device has no hanging issue at all because it is consisted of 3GB RAM. CS1 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 effects the smartphones’ performance.
