We’ve already had a detailed comparison of the company’s devices Highscreen – Zera F and Zera S – two budgetary gadgets with good parameters. A little later there was a new device called Zera S Power. He became a modification of the normal version: changed the look, the number of built-in memory and, most importantly, Power appeared very capacious battery 4000 mAh.
Since the difference between the smartphone is small, the review will be very short, will dwell only on the working hours and some other items.
Design, size, controls – Highscreen Zera S Power
Smartphone Highscreen Zera S Power looks quite simple: a rectangular case with sharp edges, thick rear cover, black color – in short, all as similar gadgets, ugly and unsightly. The back cover is flat, but the edges have a smooth transition to the lateral faces, whereby the device is comfortable to hold in your hand.
The housing is made entirely of durable-looking semi-gloss plastic screen is protected by tempered glass, oleophobic coating is present: prints though and remain on display, but quickly erased, moreover, the finger glides easily over the surface.
A couple of weeks of active use of your smartphone on the screen not a single scratch on the body is not a loss, chips were found. With the assembly of all excellent: no backlash and crunches under strong compression of the gadget.
The front panel is located on top of the earpiece. Its volume is slightly above average, relatively pleasant timbre, not boomy, the interlocutor can hear clearly and legibly enough. To the right of the speaker – an indicator of missed events, “SELF” -Luggage, light sensor and proximity.
Below the screen are touch buttons traditional “android” – “Back”, “Home” and “Menu”. White backlight, bright but not blinding at night.
The microphone on the bottom, a standard headphone output 3.5 mm and a micro-USB – on the top.
The power button is a surprise to me was way left. Typically, this location is convenient for left-handers. Button thin, long, almost drowned in the case. Use is not very convenient. The same type of key, volume rocker. She is right.
On the back side: camera lens and flash are strongly recessed into the rear cover, handsfree speaker.
To remove the socket, it is necessary to pry the recess on the left.
Slot for microSD memory card and connector for microSIM (only 2G) – left, right – miniSIM (2G / 3G).
Display – Highscreen Zera S Power
It uses exactly the same matrix as in Zera S – 4.5″ qHD (540×960 pixels) IPS. The physical size of the display of the first device – 56h99 mm. Frame top – 15 mm, bottom – 17 mm, right and left – 5.5 mm.
The maximum brightness of white color – 811 cd / m2 maximum brightness in black – 1.17 cd / m2, contrast ratio – 692: 1.
Judging by the chart, there is a distinct lack in red, but blue in excess. Judging from the color chart coverage is slightly higher than sRGB (green).
Maximum viewing angles, but the picture is tilted slightly away in a purple hue.
In general, such a device screen was pleasantly surprised by the high brightness and excellent viewing angles.
By model name you might guess: either there is a powerful processor, a capacious battery. However, given the cost of Zera S Power, easy to understand that we are talking about the battery rather than on any steep chipset.
The battery has a capacity of 4000 mAh. The manufacturer is not sharing with us about the time of the data, so we have tested ourselves.
Included reason lies AC adapter to charge the battery to 100% in about four hours.
In this section, all typical of any Android-smartphone budget category. The device operates in cellular networks 2G (GSM / GPRS / EDGE, 850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and 3G (900/2100 MHz).
In the presence of Bluetooth version 4.0 to transfer files and speech. There is a wireless connection Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11 b / g / n. Smartphone can naturally be employed in an access point (Wi-Fi Hotspot) or modem.
The USB connector is configured as a Host, that is to say it is easy to connect, for example, Flash-device.
There are GPS. Its sensitivity is quite good: in “cold” mode for 20 seconds to find 3 satellites indoors near a window in 10 seconds – up to 5 satellites, an open space for the same time – up to 15.
Memory and memory card
Inside the integrated 1 GB of RAM. On average, about 600 MB free.

Photo quality average or below average. Basically, the claim to the low detail, a lot of noise, not very precise focus.
Video unit records in FullHD resolution of 30 K / s. Quality is bad: not dramatically, when you change the focus hear the moving lens, the image trembles when quickly change focus between near and far objects.

Model Highscreen Zera S Power operates on the chipset MediaTek MT6582: Cortex-A7, 28 nm, 4 cores at 1.3 GHz, graphics accelerator Mali-400MP2 with a clock frequency of 400 MHz. About chip we wrote countless times, so I will not repeat.

In the gadget installed standard music and video player, radio. Speaker is loud, but given the size, could be incorporated speaker louder.
Conclusion -Highscreen Zera S Power
