Trust me, the Vkworld Mix Plus can be said to be the best $100 smartphone with the best design ever. The design, appearance and overall aesthetic of the device doesn’t give immediately give it off as a budget smartphone. On the front and back, the Vkworld Mix Plus is covered by glass. Not just any glass, but the Corning Gorilla Glass. This will go a long way in increasing the toughness and durability of the device but still, sheer carefulness is paramount when handling the Vkworld Mix Plus if you do not want to have a shattered phone – which is totally disfiguring. You can get a phone case but I wouldn’t advise that as it would ruin the beauty resonating from the glass body.
The Vkworld Mix Plus is a pretty much engineered around the design of many – if not all – bezel-less smartphones. A very slim body with a huge display and very slim and almost negligible frames around the sides of the display, except the bottom. At the top of the display, there is an earpiece space neatly slit along the upper part of the device. The slot is so tiny that you only get to see it upon closer examination of the device.
Micro USB port and 3.5mm headphone jack both sit comfortably at the top of the device while the dual speaker grill and microphone inhabit the bottom.
You most likely would have noticed the large space at the bottom of the device and the tiny circular rear camera. This is a trend Xiaomi started with eh Xiaomi Mi Mix smartphone by moving the rear camera to the bottom part of the display, away from its traditional and more natural position at the top of the display.
Packing a 5.5-inch HD LCD screen on a small and slim body is another design pros of the Vkworld Mix Plus. The display has good quality, does pretty well with colour and can be used outdoors under the effect of sunlight without much stress to the eye.
Processor, OS and Storage
The Vkworld Mix Plus comes with a body and outer appearance that could make you go “wow!”. But for the internals, I’m afraid that isn’t the case.
On the inside, there is a Quad-core Cortex-A53 processor with a clock speed of 1.3GHz running in the MediaTek MT6737 chipset. This processor can get basic smartphone work done without glitches. You may however not have the best of gaming experience on this device as it may slow down the device and even cause it to heat up.
The Vkworld Mix Plus come out of the box running the Android Nougat v7.0 operating system and has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of dedicated internal storage. The SIM card slot doubles sthe SD card slot and when you aren’t using the SIM 2 slot, you can make use of the slot for your. SD card. The device can take micro SD card of up to 32GB.
This is quite similar to what the ILA X smartphone comes with.
The camera of the Vkworld Mix Plus aren’t the best either, but they get some decent photography work done. There is a single 8-megapixels sensor on the rear and through software interpolation, the camera quality can be beefed up to 13-megapixels. The front camera on the other hand is of 5-megapixels quality and via software, increases it 8-megapixels.
Powering the Vkworld Mix Plus is the built-in 2,800mAh battery which can give a talk time of more than 12 hours. And thanks to the Quick Charge technology in the device, shirt charge time is assured.
