more pics and specificaion of QMOBILE NOIR A16 QUAD CORE IS HERE


The large 5-inch 720p display takes center stage and it converts to a pixel density of 294ppi. On top of the display we have the 2-megapixel camera and the usual suite of sensors. The back is highlighted with the large 8-megapixel camera which is supplemented by a LED flash on the bottom and there is also a speaker on the lower edge. The back plate can be removed quite easily. Once open, one can see the large 2,000mAh battery, the twin SIM card slots and a microSD card slot. On the left we get the twin volume rockers, the top is home to a 3.5mm jack and the microUSB port and the right is home to the power button.
 The QMOBILE NOIR A16 HD scores heavily in terms of its hardware spec. It comes equipped with a large 5-inch 720p IPS display, a quad-core MediaTek SoC, which is clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory (Only 1.77GB is available to the user), a microSD card slot, dual-SIM capabilities, a 8-megapixel camera and a 2,000 mAh battery.

When compared to 720p displays on phones like the Galaxy S III, and the HTC One X, then we have to say it is not the best, but for the price it is absolutely fantastic. In fact, apart from the Lava A1000 no other phone in this price range offers such a high-resolution display. The display is pretty washed out and blacks are not very deep, but it has decent viewing angles and is adequately bright when the brightness is bumped. While it may not be the best 720p display in the market, at this price point it is the best one save for the Lava A1000, which we have not tested yet.
 The QMOBILE NOIR A16 HD is powered by MediaTek’s MT6589 SoC, which has four ARM Cortex A7 cores that hum away at 1.2GHz. It works in concert with 1GB of RAM and a PowerVR 5XT GPU. But its performance cannot be compared with competing Nvidia Tegra 3 or Samsung Exynos chipsets that power the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S III, because those chipsets have four ARM Cortex A9 cores. On the other hand, the ARM Cortex A7 SoC on the Canvas HD is more frugal with the way it sips power and that is evident in its battery life. So, it will be unfair to expect performance that will compete with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S III.


In a way we can say its performance is closer to dual-core ARM Cortex A9 chips found on phones like the Samsung Galaxy S II. That said, the Canvas HD just hums along without skipping a beat, though there is an in-tangible lag in its performance, especially if one has used other smartphones with quad-core processors. People living in a dual-core world will not notice it because the general performance of the device falls right between the dual-core ARM Cortex A9 CPUs that were found on the flagship Android smartphones from 2011 and the quad-core ARM Cortex A9 chips in the flagship phones of 2012.
Even when we ran benchmarks our theory was ratified. For instance on the Quadrant benchmark it scored above 4,000. This is well above a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 CPU and well below a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 CPU. Even the web browser performance is quite smooth. Admittedly, the pinch to zoom and scrolling is not as smooth as say the Galaxy Nexus or even the Galaxy S II, but for most purposes it is more than adequate.
