Review: Medion Life P-4502 Budget Smart Phone
Build & overall design
At 10 mm this model is thicker as compared to most of the recent high-end mobiles, yet very thinner than Lumia 530 & Moto E, & other budget phones.
It has a quarter-HD (qHD) screen with 960p x450p resolution that equates to 236 ppi. That is normal for any budget smart phone. Also, it must be noted that it has an IPS screen making it superb in terms of colors & viewing angles.
Performance & hardware
With a quad-core CPU at 1.3 GHz, Mali 400 graphics, & 1 GB RAM, the Medion Life P-4502 would not blow the top phones off the water still it’s capable for everyday tasks like email checking, chatting, online surfing. Also it is quicker than the Lumia 530, Moto E, & the Moto G which is a bit more costly.
Connectivity, Storage, & add-ons
The smartphone gets 8 GB of internal memory storage, but users will only be getting nearly 3 GB available as the company offers plenty of software pre-installed, & the Android operating system takes up little of this storage. But, you’ll have additional storage option up-to 32 GB with the external memory slot. Also, you could use cloud & storage applications like Google Drive for storing your docs, 3rd party services like Dropbox & Google Play Music for audio files.
Talking of connectivity, you’ve no 4G, the newest Wi-Fi & NFC. You will get 802.11 b/g/n for Wi-Fi, GPS & Bluetooth 4.0.
The cell phone comes with 2 MP front & 5Mp rear camera which is very usual for any budget device, & phone’s ability for zooming and capturing HDR shots is very impressive, also the device offers smile detection, face beauty, & face detection feature.
The device offers the KitKat version of the android OS. However, we doubt whether Medion Life P-4502 would receive a Lollipop upgrade or not.
The smart phone comes with a 1700 mAh lithium ion battery that the company claims would be lasting only up-to four hrs. of talk time. It is improbable that you will be talking on this phone for such a long period each day, & with a few reasonably less power graphics & hardware along with a qHD screen the ALDI smart phone should not drain the battery too rapidly. Like many Android devices, you can expect to charge it once each day, nevertheless.
