At this time appeared Xenium series with battery unit, the capacity of 4400 mAh which is. Of course, do not record levels, but it is not bad, considering the thickness of the device – about 9.5 mm. For example, there Highscreen with battery 6000 mAh on, but this giant shell thickness of about 15 mm. So there is nothing to compare.

The rest of the gadget is quite usual specifications: five-inch HD screen, 4 cores from MTK, 2 GB of RAM and 8 MP camera.

Thin edge on the front panel forming a side, is made of glossy black plastic. It protects the screen from horizontal surface roughness, which put V387. Side faces – semi-gloss black. The rear cover is made of plastic, the top covered with “soft touch” layer, there is a small relief pattern in the form of a fine mesh. Soft to the touch like rubber.

Display surface is protected by glass. According to some reports, used glass Gorilla Glass. In fact – all the same, more importantly, that during the use of any scratches appeared. Oleophobic coating is. I can not say that it is good, but no problems: prints easily erased from the display and finger glides over it.

Top center is earpiece covered with a dark metallic mesh. Its volume is slightly above average, legibility is not the best: the interlocutor can hear like “boomy”, too much bass and not enough treble. The right of the speaker – the front camera, on the left – an indicator of missed events and various sensors.

The buttons at the bottom of a white semi-transparent paint applied. Illumination is, it dull.

On the reverse side of the machine: the camera, recessed, LED flash Simplex cold light, a speaker at the bottom.

To remove the socket, it is necessary to pry the recess on the left side. Under the cover on the left is a connector for microSD-card, on the right (one above the other) – slots for installations miniSIM.

If you want to play with toys (such as Dead Trigger 2), the energy also do not have to save – the battery becomes exhausted after only 6:00!

Summary: count for the week, if you only talk and write SMS, for 2-3 days at a not very active “Uzes” and one day, if you put the brightness to its maximum value.

Philips Xenium V387 – Memory and memory card

In this model, all grown-up: inside is 2 GB! Apparently, due to so many opportunities for small volume smoothed braking system.

2 GB free about 1.4 GB – again thanks to the “naked” version of Android without shells, load on the system.

Despite a decent aperture value, the average quality of the photos. The main claims to detail, especially when the light level is reduced: crawl artifacts, muddy color noise and so on. The dynamic range is also not the best. In general, cool optics and the module is extremely weak.

Video is recorded in the resolution of FHD. Frame rate “jumps”: night – 16 frames per second, in the evening – 20-25, in the afternoon – 30. The picture quality is weak. Mono sound.

The front camera is not wide-angle, but takes a more or less well.

Philips Xenium V387 – Performance and software platform

In most of these devices should Taiwanese chip MediaTek. Smartphone Philips Xenium V387 is no exception. It recently used the most common among the “public sector” chip MT6582: CPU Cortex-A7, 28 nm, 4 cores at 1.3 GHz, graphics accelerator Mali-400MP2 with clock frequency of 400 MHz.

For comfortable operation of the processor is more than enough. With games there is a small problem (mostly small lags and freezes), but only with powerful type Dead Trigger 2 graphics at full “reel”. The device is not buggy, does not slow down, running relatively smoothly.

Philips Xenium V387 – Multimedia

Music Player usual, third-party applications in this device is not. Polyphonic speaker volume is low, mostly mid-range frequencies are heard, the sound is clear.

The headphone volume is high, there is no congestion. Quality I did not like: despite the clear treble and more or less well-developed medium, low frequencies not at all, even after installation, for example, PowerAMP became better not.

Standard video player. Below – screenshots of the program to test the smartphone able to play video and audio in different formats.

Philips Xenium V387 – Conclusion

The device turned out quite balanced, cheerful processor, plenty of RAM, a good screen, nice appearance, removable panels in the set. A little disappointed camera and sound through the headphones. However, I believe that V387 will not buy for the musical and photographic opportunities, but for the fact that it is equipped with a powerful battery of 4400 mAh on.
