The Innjoo Fire is one of those smartphones which buyers operating on a very tight budget could find perfect to their needs. The device packs in a large IPS display, a quad-core processor and ample RAM to deliver a level of performance that could make you feel your money was well spent.
Design and Display
This affordable smartphone shows off a design featuring plastic and accentuated by metallic-looking edges. It is relatively slim at a thickness of 8.9 millimetres, but weighs a tad at 162 grams. The Innjoo Fire packs a 5-inch diagonal display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels for a pixel density of 220 ppi. This IPS touchscreen should offer you decent and enjoyable wide-angle viewing for movies and games.
The Innjoo Fire is fitted with a 5-megapixel rear camera which has LED flash, autofocus and HDR to enable you capture some images of good enough quality, at least on paper. You can use the camera to capture Full HD (1080p) videos at 30 frames per second. There is also a 5-megapixel sensor on the front to let you use the phone to take selfies you will be eager to share with friends.
Hardware and Software
You are in for some decent performance from the Innjoo Fire, being powered by a quad-core MediaTek processor running along at speeds of up to 1.3 GHz. You should expect impressive level of responsiveness from the processor, especially considering the fact that it is paired with 2 GB of RAM – impressive for a smartphone in this price range. The Innjoo Fire uses Android 4.4 KitKat for its operation. That software, which is overlaid with Innjoo’s InnUI, is a bit disappointing given the many devices around these days running Lollipop, but it is forgivable since you are not really paying a lot anyway.
Sundry Specs and Features
The Innjoo Fire is equipped with an unbranded 2500mAh Li-Ion battery, which should give you enough juice to use the device for at least a full work day. There is ample 16 GB of onboard storage capacity – enough space to keep all your photos, songs, documents and some movies. You will also be able to add up to 32 GB more using a microSD card. MicroUSB 2.0, Bluetooth, 3G and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with Wi-Fi Direct and Hotspot are available for your connectivity needs.
The phone currently sells for around N19,000 in Nigeria – the price may be more or less, depending on where you are making your purchase from. At that price, the Innjoo Fire offers decent value for money. I mean it is not every day you come across a smartphone in this price range with 2 GB of RAM.
