QMobile’s LINQ L20, which is distinctively designed, has an incredible camera, crisp display and an affordable price tag of Rs 11,550, took up the position of the hottest selling item during Daraz.pk’s 23 March Sale. The phone has been exclusively on Daraz.pk at a 20% reduced price, fitting into the low-range segment yet offering premium features.
We will be sharing our own views on the phone really soon but this is what Daraz.pk has to say about the LINQ L20:
The key thing about the LINQ L20 is the design: it’s beautiful – the textured back and attention to detail hits you the second you hold this phone. The chrome metal band runs around the edges, adding a premium feel; the subtle touch enhancing the overall design. The phone is durable and conducive. The buttons are rightly positioned and the compact size of the device gives it a good grip.
The phone, that is available in two colours, white and black, has AMOLED panels which deliver a soothing multimedia experience essential for users with taste for watching movies and playing games on their phones. The device has good sunlight legibility as the display has adequate brightness to make content legible even in direct sunlight.
The smartphone is powered by a 1.4GHz Octa-Core processor and 2GB RAM. The internal 16GB storage should be enough; however, the expandable microSD cards of up to 128GB can be used to boost the storage capacity. The LinQ L20 offers two SIM card slots that support 3G and conventional connectivity features like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS.
The phone feels refined and fluidic in terms of design and usability with an Android Lollipop 5.1. This phone introduces HD IPS 5.0 display resolving all the graphical issues. It runs all the multimedia applications without compromising on the quality of the graphics. We did not come across any responsive issues with the interface. On the whole, we were satisfied with the way things seem to have panned out with the software.
QMobile has worked on making its theme engine quite powerful. All in all, we found that the software on the LinQ L20 is sharp and doesn’t make the smartphone feel sluggish.
The combination of MediaTek chipset and 2GB RAM is great. With pre-loaded exclusive Microsoft Office applications, you can easily churn out a high level of multitasking with ability to run all the applications in the Play Store. We did not encounter any major issues with the performance of the smartphone in day-to-day usage.
The 13MP rear camera comes equipped with the wide f2.2 aperture and a 4P Largan lens, which makes it absorb a good amount of light to capture bright images. The results are quite good in day-light conditions where colours pops out well on the AMOLED screen. The LED flash at the rear is powerful and results in well-lit images in pitch dark. The front 5MP camera is also accompanied by an LED flash, which gives the LinQ L20 an edge over other competitors. The camera also features a number of modes including HDR and Panoramic to experiment with the shots you take.
Backed by a 2500 mAh removable battery unit, the phone takes its good time to die, providing standby for more than 370 hours.
