Kolina k100 + looks very much like the iPhone 6+, but it is several times cheaper, in China it can be bought at around $ 160.

The case of the device is made of plastic, however, quite durable, and in appearance it is very similar to polished metal. The back cover is rather slippery, which is not an advantage.
The smartphone is sold in four color options.

On the front side there is a 5.5-inch display, speaker, front camera, proximity and lighting sensor, event notification LED.


Under the screen there are three large keys - “Menu”, “Home” and “Back” with low backlight.

To the left near the earpiece is an event indicator.

All controls are on the right side, first comes the “rocker” volume control and below the power button (screen lock).
On the left side is a slot for SIM cards.

Slot for two micro SIM cards.

At the upper end there is: a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The bottom end is occupied by a micro-USB connector and a microphone.

The back cover is made of plastic.

In its upper part is the main camera13 MP, flash, main speaker and microphone hole. This microphone is used only for the camera and voice recorder. I want to note that his sensitivity is excellent.

The speaker of the smartphone will hear its loud call, even when you are in another room with the door closed or in a very noisy place.

In the center on the back cover, there is a zonewhich supports touch gestures, it can be used to turn the pages of the desktop, view photos and work in the browser, with a triple tap you can start the camera, but I have not found where to disable this function.


I want to note that the device is perfectly assembled, all parts are tightly fitted to each other, there are no gaps or backlashes.
Holding a smartphone or controlling it with one hand is not very convenient, which is not surprising with such a diagonal.



It's currently hard to find a smartphone for $ 160 withsuch an excellent 5.5-inch FullHD IPS display. Kolina K100 + is one of the exceptions. Of course, the black color is conveyed not quite correctly, but the rest of the colors are reproduced just fine, their saturation is optimal. The viewing angle is large enough and high contrast.


Viewing angles


But the biggest advantage of the display is itshigh resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels), which provides high definition "picture". Reading texts on such a screen and browsing sites is very convenient. We hope that the manufacturer has set a certain bar, and we will no longer meet screens of lower quality among smartphones in this price category.
The screen gives a bright, juicy picture of the color on it looks very attractive


Multi-touch supports 10 simultaneous touches.

The screen of the smartphone supports the work in gloves only in thin ones.

This model uses a 3200 mAh non-removable lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery.

The test result pleased:


The smartphone has two cameras, the main one at 13 MP (Sony), and the front one at 5 MP.
In my opinion, the quality of the photos is quite good.
Of course, the image received by the front camera is slightly worse, but for video calls it’s enough.
Basic camera settings.


The smartphone takes pictures in the resolution of 4160x3120.
Unfortunately, you cannot upload photos in the original resolution to the site, so they are greatly reduced, which of course affects the quality.
