Design & Display
Although the smartphone sports an average 5.0 inches IPS display, the metallic covering it’s crafted in grants it a ravishing feel.
Talking about actualization of lightness with similitude to a feather, the combo of 9 mm thickness and 137 g weight see to that.
With an HD resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, the smartphone displays media crisp and clear.
Lovers of colors get to decide if the Space Grey color variant or the Gold color variant befits them best.
In charge of photography functions, an 8 MP shooter at the rear is seen. The camera sensor comes along with a LED flash to brighten images taken in low light conditions.
Selfies don’t appear very pretty as the front-facing camera has a 2 MP quality. Sadly, no LED flash is made available to increase the selfie quality.
Asides the camera, earpiece and light sensor at the top bezel, an iris scanner takes shield at the top. Just so you know, the scanner makes use of iris recognition to unlock the smartphone.
What a nice innovation to sub the rampant fingerprint sensor craze!
Performance X Software
In the land of hardware, and a time of performance, the destiny of Fero Iris rests on the shoulders of a smart chipset; its name – MediaTek MT6737.
*Die-hard lovers of Merlin will understand better*
Accompanying the chipset is the Quad-core 1.3 GHz processor conjoined with the ARM Mali-T720 MP2 GPU.
Overseeing the Fero Iris’s multitasking lies on the shoulders of the 1GB RAM. That said, the internal storage sums up an 8GB capacity with the tendency to distend to 32GB through a MicroSD card.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS gets the nod to function as the smartphone’s running OS.
Picking up the ardent armor in this section is the 4G LTE network connectivity. Other constituents include the 2G GSM and 3G WCDMA. Micro USB v2.0, GPS, Bluetooth v4.0, Wi-Fi and Hotspot are the other means of connectivity on the smartphone.
Fero Iris is powered by a Li-Ion 2.5 Ah battery that’s not only removable but also replaceable.
