Where to buy a PPTV KING 7S smartphone: gadget review, price, specifications, firmware and phone reviews

After the New Year, I thought about replacing my THLT5S for something else. Looking through various options, I came across this smartphone. Features are very good for just over $ 100. Of course the 6 "screen will be large for someone, but it’s quite normal for me, it doesn’t cause inconvenience.
P.S Unfortunately this smartphone can no longer be found, but there is still a version with a 3D screen, for 130-140 dollars.
What is PPTV? Here is some info
Additional Information

Why is this phone very cheap now? Most likely, the smartphone “didn’t go in” and the manufacturer decided to unload the warehouses from the phones, and to make this happen faster, they reduced the price to the cost level.
The order was placed on January 18, the seller did not have themin stock, but after the Chinese NG sent. After 3 weeks I received it. By the way, I was very lucky - the parcel got to the customs in Moscow, if I got to other customs, then it is likely that the parcel would be deployed. The reason is the lack of notification, according to w3bsit3-dns.com.

Smartphone Features Behind

As you can see, the smartphone was released in November 2015.
Inside, everything is arranged in boxes. Included - phone, charger, usb cable, well, and different documentation

Charging on 5v 2a is good, it gives out 2 amperes without problems. The cable is not photographed, the usual 1 meter

An envelope was found in the envelope to remove the SIM card tray, warranty card, instructions, and a Chinese sim card.

Appearance and controls
The phone case is metallic, color is golden.
Of course it would be more interesting if the front panel would be completely black, but the white version also suits.
On the front panel there is a display, camera, sensors, as well as the company logo, which is highlighted when charging (red and green), and also serves as an indicator of events.
I apologize for the quality of the photo - I shot it on an old phone.

On the right side are the power button and volume control.

On the left side is a tray for sim. Combined.

Bottom speaker, microusb jack and microphone hole

On top is a headphone port, and an IR transmitter for controlling household appliances

Back view


6-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2560 × 1440gives a good picture. The colors are bright, juicy. The brightness of the display is enough, on the street at full brightness it is visible. But you still have to peer. However, this is a problem for many phones)
Color temperature can be adjusted to your preference using MiraVision

Viewing angles are maximum.

The phone came with firmware POLY UI 2.0, Android 5.1. There is no familiar list of applications in it, you can get used to it. But there is Chinese in the dialer, on-screen lock. You also need to be smart with the activation of the DAC. Without thinking twice, I asked this firmware, everything is fine in it and there is a familiar application menu. And so this is a pure android. There are already a lot of firmware on w3bsit3-dns.com, you can experiment.
In my case, there is nothing interesting in the firmware, the most common android.

Communication GPS work.
I’ll be brief - I hear well, I can also hear well, no problem. Communication holds normally.
Here is a list of supported frequencies

The smartphone catches the Glonass and GPS satellites, and thanks to this, the number of satellites used can reach up to 21 pieces! Most commonly used are 15-16 satellites.
The speed of searching and connecting to them occurs in seconds, subject to the Internet.
On the "cold" - in a minute - one and a half.
Everything seems to be fine, but only if you turn off the screen, the satellites fall off ... Moreover, both in the stock firmware and in custom. Perhaps the problem is due to the settings, but I did not find how to fix it.

Wifi is dual-band 2.4Ghz / 5Ghz. It accepts normally, but did not check the speed, my Internet gives a maximum of 20 Mbps. 5Ghz catches - accidentally connected next to the cafe and in the properties found that the 5ghz network
Yes, the camera here is quite suitable in my opinion. Only in bright sunny colors does the white color turn yellow, you probably need to manually set the white balance. The flash is bright, two-tone. The video is written in 4K (though only in the native firmware, in the custom maximum FullHD). In low light, expectedly writes with low fps. No macro shot, unfortunately. But the sound recording quality is good - it writes cleanly, loudly, stereo! By the way, it's strange, but the container is a .3gp video.
I suggest watching photos and videos, I’ll hide it under the spoiler

If necessary, I can upload an archive with uncompressed photos

Working hours. Battery.
This smartphone has a 3610 mah battery. Enough for ~ 3 hours in games, and for a day with 3G turned on (browser, VK, various programs). Nothing outstanding.
Through the tester absorbed almost 3500mah.

Consumes up to 1.6a when charging.

Sound quality.
The speaker in the phone is loud, surround sound, there are small basses. Generally not a tweeter, which pleases, after Thl t5s)
By the sound in the headphones - as I already wrote, in thisThe smartphone has a DAC ESS ES9018K2M and a Maxim MAX97220 amplifier (which must be activated according to the instructions from w3bsit3-dns.com, or reflash). I will not say anything specific, not an audiophile, there are no expensive headphones. Nevertheless, I listened to some expensive Sony headphones for 5000 r and liked the sound. There is no lack of volume, bass shakes. The sound is pleasant by ear. I can’t say anything else. At w3bsit3-dns.com, people write that the sound is good and I agree with them.
There is a MediaTek Helio X10 processor (8 Cortex-A53 2GHz cores, 64-bit) and 3 GB of RAM. Performance is enough for everything.

Some tests.

But there is a but! I did these tests on the street, due to the phone overheating !!!.
When the processor reaches 60g, the cores are turned off / the frequency drops. The results fall almost 2 times (35000-49000 antitu points, the result is floating).
But throttling can be defeated by demolishing all files byaddress system / etc / .tp, you also need to reduce the frequency of the processor to 1.1-1.3ghz (program redmi note 2 tools). I did not see the differences in fps in games, and it helps to reduce the temperature.
I tested several games with and without protection. with a frequency of 1,3ghz
On the left - with protection on, on the right - with off.
Graphics Settings - Medium
Real racing 3

Asphalt 8

Dead trigger 2

Tanks - here the stoker processor is especially strong, up to 90 gr. I think it is possible to solve this problem by banally locking fps up to 30 frames.

Verdict: for its $ 107, the phone is excellent, of course it upsets the ill-conceived cooling, but I play very rarely, and the phone does not overheat in stock, nothing really slows down.
In general, I am very satisfied.
Review and test of games from 9 minutes
It seems I didn’t forget to write anything.
Thank you all for your attention!
