    UNBOXING





    Geotel Amigo comes with:

    • non-removable 3000 mAh battery
    • A screen protector
    • a micro USB cable
    • a travel charger
    • quick start guide


    the back of the phone is made of metal with some plastic parts, showing impressive quality built for its price.
    It does not feel cheap at all and for the price youll pay, its surely a bargain to have a full metal body in your hands.



    The 5.2 display is 2.5D and has only 720p resolution but honestly, this is one of the best HD panels Ive seen on a budget phone.
    Even the sunlight legibility is decent. The colors of the display are close to Amoled panels and the images are crisp, with good viewing angles and a fully responsive panel if I may add.
    All in all a decent display especially for a smartphone on this price range.

    On the back side of the device you will also find a fingerprint sensor which proves to be rather fast.



    It can unlock the phone in less than 0.3 second with almost 97% success rate but lets be realistic it's around 0.5s.
    It can basically store up to 5 different fingerprints and can recognize them all from 360 degrees, something thats a standard nowadays.

    Just above display youll find a 5MP front-facing camera with wide angle view and decent images during the day and very good shots made in the low light condition using front LED flash which is dual color for more natural color images.
    The ambient light sensor and a proximity sensor are next to it.
    It would be great if we can use fingerprint sensor to make selfies but there is no such option.
    On the right is the LED multi-color notification light. Nice to have it

    When it comes to hardware, the Geotel Amigo has some decent specs for its price.
    Its powered by an 8-core MediaTek MTK6753 SoC clocked at 1.3GHz, along with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card dedicated slot so we can use 2 SIMs simultaneously and SD card.
    Thanks to a Mali T720 MP3 GPU the gaming performance is decent if you play games like Asphalt 8 on medium graphics.
    Still, you should expect some skipped frames but no significant lag.










    The Geotel Amigo is a 4G/LTE smartphone with average performance when it comes to LTE networks, achieving average data speeds of 20-30Mbps that surely offer a decent feeling when you use it, along with decent performance in everyday use.
    It has good GSM/WCDMA/LTE signal reception with flawless handovers and no dropped calls during my tests that is.




    Geotel runs on Android 7.0 Nougat.




    There is no bloatware or other unnecessary apps inside, it supports all the classic Nougat features but the UI has been tampered a bit by Geotel and offers several gesture controls like Smart Lock, Five Fingers Back, Three Fingers Screenshot etc.



    Geotel Amigo comes with a 13.0-megapixel main camera along with a 5.0-megapixel camera and a LED flash with generally acceptable photos as you can see for yourselves. The camera software is typical of what you will see in most Chinese smartphones, with settings for exposure, ISO, white balance, image resolution, HDR, Panorama shots, video capture etc.

    GOOD PHOTOS, AVERAGE VIDEOS BUT DISAPPOINTING LOW LIGHT PERFORMANCE

    Here is some close up:


    And here is low light image:



    And here is image with flash:




    Its quite easy to capture decent photos in daylight conditions, panoramic images with a helpful assistant that shows the way to do it correctly and the same goes for video capture. However when the sun goes down problems appear, such as low ISO, increased digital noise in photos and reduced frame rate in videos.

    Here is some video samples:






    The Geotel Amigo is equipped with a relatively average 3000mAh battery but numbers dont mean anything in this situation. The device comes with an energy efficient processor and -in general- it performs well providing a full days usage with no problems and perhaps a bit more if you are able to be gentle with it.

    All in all we have a winner here, a mid-range smartphone with decent standby times if youre an average user (6 hours of active screen) but the fact that it doesnt support some type of quick charging is a bit disappointing. On the other hand it costs just EUR 100!

    The audio sound from the loud speaker and 3.5mm audio output is surprisingly good!
    Check the sound level:




    Conclusion:

    Its current price is excellent for a smartphone with 3GB of RAM, a quite powerful Mediatek SoC, 32GB of storage, a 5.2 inch HD display and Android 7.0 Nougat with a decent camera.
    The phone support both SIM and SD card so you are not limited by the internal space.
