Vernee Apollo Review 2017
The Vernee Apollo is an extremely well-built phone. It comes packed with a 5.5- inch 2k display. Why not? The Vernee Apollo boasts of very high resolutions and hence it joins the elite club of quad HD display. It is powered by a deca-core Mediatek Helio X20 chipset. It also features 6 GB RAM, 128 GB internal storage, 21 MP Sony IMX230 sensors, 8 MP front-facing camera, Android Marshmallow, full metal jacket and USB Type-C.
The back of the Vernee Apollo is as good and it looks beautiful. Next is the front, the basic front looks good, but it is advisable to change the scratch guard with a better scratch resistant film as it gets scratches easily. Nonetheless, the screen underneath is protected by Gorilla Glass 3.
The Vernee Apollo feels good in hand. You have the power and volume keys on the right side. At the bottom, there is a USB Type-C port along with dual speakers. On the left side, there are slots for Micro SD card as well as dual SIM cards. Finally, on top, you have a regular 3.5mm headphone jack. However, note that the phone comes with onscreen buttons which eat up some space on the screen. Also, the bezels on the top as well as the bottom are a bit large, at least larger than what I would have wanted. I feel the display would have looked even better if the bezels were smaller in these areas.
At the back of the Vernee Apollo, you will find a slightly protruding camera hump with dual LED dual tone flash on its left. Underneath this, you have a round fingerprint sensor that works well. Vernee Apollo’s fingerprint works well. The phone unlocks in less than a second. Rest of the back is clean and polished, except for the Vernee logo down below.
Vernee Apollo is advertising the Apollo’s 2K Display as ideal for VR experience. This is why you get a free VR headset inside the box which is a nice add on.
Overall, the Vernee Apollo is a great mid-range smartphone. Inside, the phone comes with a Sony IMX230 camera sensor with f/2.2 aperture. Now, this is a pretty good setup, capable of churning out good quality pictures. But the quality of images captured doesn’t just depend on the sensor inside, but also on the software optimization from the company. This is where I feel, the Apollo could have done better unlike the iconix c703 tablet
You can continuously use Vernee Apollo on Wi-Fi and sure enough you will not notice any drop in speed or signal. Pairing to speakers, wearable, and even other phones via Bluetooth is also pretty straight forward. Also the call quality is decent and you will never have issues talking on the phone for a while.
The speaker output is pretty good as the sound comes out loud and clear. The headphone output is also decent as you get clear audio through good headphones.
