The VKWorld VK700 is a super cheap device costing just about $59.99 but with specs that are quite good for this price tag.
The phone looks quite good, has a CNC metal frame and a 6.9mm thin body.
It features the MT6580a quad-core chipset clocked at 1.5GHz, with 1GB RAM and 8GB of storage. This is further expandable up to 64GB via MicroSD. There’s a 5-inch display with 720p resolution, which is quite impressive given the price tag.
At the back, there’s an 5mp camera intrapolated to 8mp while up front, there is a 2mp sensor intrapolated to 5mp. Both cameras do a decent job in bright conditions, however any pictures taken in low light look pretty bad. This was to be expected for such a cheap device.
The device is running Android 5.1 Lollipop OS. Unfortunately the manufacturer decided to use their own launcher so it can add a few "features" to the device. That doesn't work that well; the phone becomes laggy and the offered features are useless. Installing nova launcher makes wonders and the phone becomes quite fast and snappy.
Another disappointing thing about this device is the 2200mah battery. It seems quite impossible to get more than 2h of screen time on. Of course, not everyone uses their phone that much, and it js quite possible that the phone will make it through an entire day with moderate usage.
Most apps and games work really well on this device even with the 1gb of ram. The phone does get quite hot while playing games. Luckily the heat dissipates quick enough thru the metal frame.
This phone doesn't have a notification light and the 3 buttons at the bottom of the device don't light up.
Overall, for $60usd you get a good looking phone that cuts some corners in order to keep that low price.
