Vernee is a know company in China. First announced the Vernee Apollo, but it’s smaller brother Vernee Apollo Lite appeared first at the beginning of the summer. The Vernee Apollo Lite, might be named as Lite, but after checking the specs, you will agree with me that this is not a Lite mobile, on the contrary. TomTop is having a flash sales, giving Vernee Apollo Lite at a very good price for limited pieces. But let us have first a look at it and then go and order it till it last!
The Vernee Apollo Lite comes in two colors: ‘Moonlight Silver’ and ‘Space Grey.’ Comes with a 5.5 inch display and 1080p screen resolution. The phone is packing a Sharp IGZO display panel which not only has great color and viewing angles but is also extremely battery efficient. It’s seriously one of the better displays I’ve seen on a 1080p smartphone, and definitely better than anything else I’ve seen come from the lesser-known Chinese manufacturers. Vernee claims the display has Corning Gorilla Glass 3, so it is well protected. The dimensions are rather big with the 152mm long, 76.2mm wide and 9.2mm thick and weights 176 grams.
The Apollo Lite has the deca-core Mediatek Helio X20 which, extending ARM’s big.LITTLE core structure, has three sets of different cores in the SoC that are switched on or off depending on the demand. In detail, there are four low-power ARM Cortex-A53 cores that have a max clock speed of 1.4 GHz – these cores are what the phone would depend on after a page or non-graphically intensive app has fully loaded. The next are four more A53 cores which are clocked at 2.0 GHz with a minimum clock speed of 1.84 GHz, and at the very high end are two ARM Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2.3 GHz that are switched on when anything really intensive is taking place – such as gaming. Ultimately the phone can have a single A53 core operating at just 221 MHz, making it really energy efficient, or all 10 cores operating at their full capacity making it quite a powerful phone. For the graphics, a Mali-T880 MP4 clocked at 780MHz does all the hard work. The mobile comes with 4GB DDR3 RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The internal storage can be expanded with a micro TF card up to 128GB.
The Vernee Apollo Lite comes with a front camera for selfies of 5 MP Samsung S5K5E8 that has an f/2.0 aperture and the rear camera at 16MP, with F/2.0 RGBW light-sensor technology and PDAF. The rear camera can record at 4k.
The Vernee Apollo Lite features MediaTek’s Pump Express 3.0, which is technology that is comparable to Qualcomm’s Quick Charge. It makes charging quite quick, so if your battery begins to die out you can get up and running quite quickly again. The mobile is equipped with a built in 3,200 mAh battery, which is good enough to get you through a day of whatever you’d throw at it. The IGZO display did quite well when it came to energy consumption, meaning you get more on-screen time in comparison to other display technologies.
Overall the Vernee Apollo Lite, seems to be a really good mobile. The Lite goes for the less memory from the big brother, so don’t be afraid that has lees specs from many other mobiles. TomTop has it on flash sales for several hours, but still you don’t know when all 200 pieces will be sold, so hurry up! You will find it at 166.99$, a really low price!
