Design and elements layout

In terms of design Fly EVO Tech 4 is similar to the majority of modern smartphones: it is a kind of "brick" with rounded corners. But unlike ultrabudget models that sometimes look too rough or bulky the novelty provides a good impression through the beveled edges and the back panel with a metal texture. The device is good for average palm and is good operated by one hand although it all depends on the size of the palm and the grip (after all we are talking about a model with a 5-inch display). Thus, the dimensions (140,5 x 73,0 x 9,0 mm) and weight (154 g) of the device are comparable to competitors in this price range.

The case is completely plastic, with the exception of the front panel, which is covered by tempered glass with a very weak oleophobic layer. Frame around the screen are approximately 5 mm on each side, 16.5 mm at bottom and 12 mm on top.

Around the contour there is a glossy protective edge. Location of the front panel elements is quite common for modern gadgets. It should be noted only three touch-sensitive keys, which have dim backlight.

The layout of the controls, connectors and ports does not cause any complaints: microphone is on the lower sidewall, micro-USB port and a 3.5mm audio are on top, the power key and volume control are on the right side and the left panel doesn’t contain any interface. Power key and volume controls are clear travel, but it will be better if they were a little bit thicker.

Rear panel of Fly IQ4514 Quad is made of glossy plastic, which has typical drawbacks: fingerprints and scuff are quickly collected. There is a traditional set of elements: the camera module, the manufacturer's logo and the lattice of multimedia speaker. The lower area doesn’t have any hills, so the speaker can be muted if the gadget is on a soft horizontal surface of the screen up.

To remove the back cover there is a special ledge. After its dismantling you will get an access to the replaceable battery, two slots for Micro-SIM and memory cards microSD. Access to one of SIM-cards does not cover the battery, but the "hot swap" is not supposed, so you have to restart the smartphone.

Fly IQ4514 Quad has a good build quality. In normal use, the body does not provide unnecessary sounds. The back cover is kept firmly on a few valves, but there are slight gaps, so under deliberate pressure you can hear creaks. Glass is not pressed, but under strong pressure some strains may appear. Considering the affordable price of the smartphone, such flaws can be forgiven.

Display  

Fly EVO Tech 4 (IQ4514 Quad)

Fly EVO Tech 4 is equipped with high-quality 5-inch screen based on the IPS-matrix with a resolution of 1280 × 720 and pixel density at 294 ppi. The matrix is covered with protective glass (the mark is not specified). The air gap between them is absent. There is a fairly mediocre grease repellent coating and a good anti-glare filter. Fingerprints are quickly collected.

The subjective impression of the screen is quite positive. The resolution is enough for detailed images, including quite smooth fonts. For the IPS-matrix it is characterized by wide viewing angles, high contrast and pleasant color reproduction. When viewed from a diagonal inversion of colors is minimum, but the contrast level is reduced.

Here is an automatic adjustment of brightness level that works properly. The maximum figure is enough to learn the information on a sunny day, but for comfortable work it is recommended to find shade. The minimum level of brightness is sufficient for pleasant low-light conditions. Multi-touch technology can handle up to 5 simultaneous touches. It work does not cause any of complaints.

The display settings have the possibility to change the color temperature, which is typical of more expensive or flagship devices. This allows the user to adjust the image according own taste.
