The P6 Life provides the - still in Germany largely unknown - Manufacturer Alli View from June another dual SIM mobile phone. The fact that the brand with the launch on the German smartphone market is not on everyone's lips, the way has nothing do with the quality of the equipment - at least in Allview V1 Viper test already gave us a model of the brand so surprised. The model is expected to cost € 189.
The new smartphone is - at least judging by the paper after - a Dual SIM phone of the middle class. The 5.0 "touchscreen is indeed with its size in the trend and corresponds to the dimensions of the previous superphone generation like the Samsung S4 or Sony Xperia Z1, but on the great expanse offer only normal HD, is certainly not a highlight. After promises Allview with IPS OGS and display technology a particularly color-stable image.
In addition to the actual display you can with the help of an additional adapter, which is plugged to a TV with HDMI port, view the image of the phones on the TV set. For this Allview relies on the Miracast technology. At Allview V1 Viper technology was already well but still had room for improvement.
Android 4.2 with Dual-SIM Control
For 2 SIM cards: The P6 Life
That Android 4.2 is still used on new equipment, is not manufacturer continues to be widespread in the models for 2 SIM cards. It depends partly just with the chip and processor technology used together, which is not compatible with the latest versions.What is the reason the P6 Life, but we quite explicitly not know. The disadvantage to a newer operating system version is kept within narrow limits, and can be ignored for typical everyday tasks.
In addition to the standard operating system other menu functions for controlling the two SIM cards are integrated. Otherwise, the use of the normal Android 4.2.
Power and speed
In terms of processor and memory, the model is - as far as one can judge it against a Allview P6 Life Test - good, but not outstanding equipped.1.3 Ghz clock with four processor cores (quad-core) are well above average, the best models in our mobile test offer but already 8 cores and 2 GHz. The main memory (1GB) and the internal memory (8 GB) are again remarkably small dimensions. Whether there will be a memory expansion via microSD, initially was not clear.
Whether it arrived for fast browsing, remains to be seen: Officially Allview initially announced only "3G" connections, but 5-42 Mbit / s can mean everything possible. Meanwhile, it turned out that 21 Mbit / s download are possible. This is a good average. Incidentally, the manufacturer delivers the phone with already installed "Sygic" navigation software - what exactly does that mean, to be checked in detail, if the model is available.
Per Miracast allows the display contents of the P6 Life show on a TV with HDMI port
The main camera on the back has 8 megapixels, a LED flash and can focus by touch on the image area. Videos can be recorded in Full HD. For chats and selfies another camera with 2 mega pixels is integrated on the front side of the phone. The values read acceptable, the image quality is still unclear.
When and how to buy?
Allview has announced the P6 for June 2014 in black and in white. When it does arrive for the launch, it will probably be like most Allview products: These are usually offered only by smaller retailers, eg on marketplaces at major online stores. You may also receive a direct order from manufacturers is possible.
Probably it is a rather small player simply hard to get a foothold in the competitive German mobile market, after all, there are not only the established manufacturers now also a number of newcomers who compete in the dual SIM range, eg Kazam smartphones or Wiko. That small suppliers and manufacturers from countries other than China, Taiwan and Korea in this country success in the dual-SIM can have niche, but show last just the Wiko smartphones .
The only possibility for Allview to score here, of course, with new interesting as possible (and cheap) models to compete until they like the Huawei Ascend P7 (Test) , achieve a breakthrough. After Allview is Romania's largest manufacturer of smartphones and tablets. Whether it is a breakthrough, if the brand is expanding its already quite extensive dual SIM phone list to a new top model Allview P6 Life, you will see the launch in June.
