After some wait, I get on my home match to go remove in the mail my phone Jiayu G3, phone sensation from China in recent months.
With taxes already paid I face with the figure below. This is the first phone I've seen in a plastic box!
Inside the box a lot of accessories: two European model adapters (?), the Chinese discovered fit perfectly in making brazilian new model, a micro USB cable, a headset with microphone, a fully manual in Chinese and the most anticipated phone of the year!
Of course I forgot to say that the battery came out of the phone and the first thing I had to do was put it. The first time I called work, even with almost two months of delay in posting there was still 60% for the first test.
But before calling repair right at the entrance to two chips and memory card, at the top of the unit.
The battery is 2750mAh, and not 3000mAh as had appeared on the internet a few times.
I took a deep breath and pressed the power, appearing this logo that I have not yet found out what it means. My experience with cell phones Chinese shows that if something comes up in the display for more than a minute the phone probably has no hardware defects.
After the stranger soon got the symbol of Jiayu, where is the Android symbol?
While the boot we have a good time to check the camera and the back cover. Everything in order!
Now yes, We have the unlock screen. The boot time is somewhere around 1 minute. Quite reasonable in relation to the typical android phones.
My two chips ran, but the chip TIM, Although the number 2, recognised first, about three seconds before the chip of the Alive.
I called my house to check if everything was working. A nice surprise is the speaker, that is quite high and reliable.
The Jiayu is kinda too thick, What I've noticed in videos. This is due, mainly, the 2750mAh battery and the gorilla glass.
The Android settings already came to Portuguese, and some Chinese software I could remove simply by uninstalling.
The Android version is 4.0.4. I found out by accident that if you click a lot of times in the version of Android on this screen below appear Developer options. Nothing too interesting but can be useful.
Although the phone came in Portuguese of Brazil, It's easy to change it to any other language, as with any Android.
The camera quite liked the resolution. The 8 m pixels of Jiayu have been put to the test in this picture, that appears quite clearly in the phone that has a resolution of 720 p.
See the detail of the same picture magnified using the cell's own software. The camera does not lose anything to the phones of Samsung or Apple.
I did a test with the AnTuTu Benchmarking and I received only 5660. You can get a lot more than that on a Samsung S3, but for only $ 200 have a good performance and cost benefit.
Below the hardware settings: Dual Core 1 GHz clock and even resolution of 1280×720. Interessante que o AnTuTu reconhece a CPU como A7 embora o manual diga A9. Será que eu estou entendendo bem ou não há diferença?
Aí estão os ratings do celular ponto a ponto.
Fiquei um tempo usando o Home padrão do Android e resolvi instalar o famoso Ilauncher, que uso em todos os meus celulares. A interface ficou bastante boa, parecido com nossos amigos da maçã.
Depois de usar o telefone por quase uma hora descobri uma segunda caixa perdida na embalagem dos correios com uma capa verde e um protetor de display LCD. Se eu soubesse que iam me mandar uma capa teria pedido preta ou azul, não chamativa como esta.
Mas como veio de graça não posso reclamar. The camera, flash e alto-falantes encaixam perfeitamente na capa de silicone.
Há um detalhe Jiayu na capa na parte direita.
E na parte esquerda da capa temos os botões de volume.
Veja só como é brilhante a tela IPS Gorilla. Estou bastante satisfeito com o desempenho deste celular…
A great phone, que certamente valeu a espera e os US$200 pagos. Daqui há um ano penso em comprar o G4 ou outro equivalente, mas este será meu celular por um tempo. O G3 será também a fonte das fotos do Blog, que são tiradas usando o celular e enviadas usando um software próprio do WordPress para Android.
