Morefine Max1: VIDEO REVIEW
Morefine Max1: UNBOXING
As usual, let’s start by unboxing and see what’s inside. The contents of the packaging include a nice soft TPU case, two screen protectors, some instruction manuals, a charging plug and USB cable.
Morefine Max1: DESIGN and DISPLAY
I was initially surprised by the premium design and great build quality of the phone that is built by a rather unknown Chinese manufacturer.
Morefine Max1 has a metal frame going around the device along with metal buttons and the 5” display makes this device compact, and manageable with one hand.
Speaking of display, it is surprisingly good for a the phone that costs $120. It is bright, vivid and colour look vibrant. Also, it has excellent viewing angles.
Just above the screen there is a bright LED light, which has a few different colours but it is not customisable. As far as front firing optics, we have a modest 2MP shooter.
The chin of the phone is empty since Morefine Max1 has on-screen navigation buttons.
The glass back is a ridiculous fingerprint magnet but at least it helps with a grip. Here we have only 8MP camera with a single LED flash.
The buttons, which are very tactile, are located on the left but I never liked this idea on any phone. It could be just me but I am used to pressing keys on the right side and the buttons on the left are just not right.
The dual SIM card tray, where one slot also doubles as a microSD card slot is on the right.
As far as the loudspeaker, it is placed on the bottom where you can also find you micro USB charging port.
Finally, on the top there is just a headset jack.
Overall, the phone feels solid, it is well constructed and it does not feel cheap at all.
Morefine Max1: USER INTERFACE
The phone has a 2150mAh battery and it performs surprisingly well for its capacitiy. I could get over 4 hours of screen-on time while mixing heavy and light usage and using various screen brightness settings.
Morefine Max1: CONCLUSIONS
So there you have it, Morefine Max1, the phone that looks great, it is compact and it sports some premium materials in its construction.
Also, Morefine Max1 has a decent 720P screen, the UI is very fast but it has a few minor bugs that have to be fixed.
The camera is pretty mediocre but it is capable of producing okay looking images in daylight.
The battery life is surprisingly good and overall, Morefine Max1 is a decent phone for the price of around $120 despite a few shortcomings. [source]
