VKworld V3S - a cheap phone with minimal protection

Hello! Today I want to talk about a secure phone, which I decided to purchase for parents, often visiting the country. When choosing, the main requirement was the presence of large buttons, nothing more in the menu and a loud speaker and, of course, at least minimal protection. In general, I drew attention to the VKWorld V3s model.

Packaging.
I received this phone in an ordinary small bag, inside the bag was a beautiful box packed in soft material, with minimal information on it.


We open the box, inside - the orange phone of VKworld company Stone V3S model with two SIM-cards.

At the bottom of the box is a charging adapter, warranty, instructions and adapters for SIM cards.

In general, the scope of supply is small. Entered it
1. VKworld Stone V3S;
2. The power supply;
3. A few instructions;
4. Adapters for SIM cards.



Let's take a closer look at this miracle machine. The first thing that catches your eye is the rather unusual case design. It seems, and not an elite phone, it looks simple, the dimensions are compact, and it fits perfectly in the hand!

On the sides is a metal frame (aluminum) andrests on four screws. The corners of the mobile phone are sharpened and have a notch, i.e. when this phone falls to an angle, they absorb impact and soften its fall.


On the upper end wall of Stone V3SThere is a dual flashlight (Dual LED Light), giving a bright light to illuminate the path in the dark. But I would not admire this brightness. Luminous flux could be better.


On the bottom end wall there is a 3.5mm mini Jack connector for headphones and a mini USB connector for charging the battery.

There is a camera on the back of the phone. The video quality is not very high, although acceptable for such a price.

The back cover is made of plastic. In order to remove it, and thereby gain access to the battery of the phone, you must pry it for a special groove.

Energy efficient battery guarantees long lifeStone V3S life time without recharging, so you can no doubt take it with you on any trip. Without recharging, the battery can last for 25 days (as the manufacturer says). In real conditions, this is not verified. The phone was fully charged, 4 days passed, the battery charge is about 60-70%.

Under the battery are slots for two SIM cards and a slot for installing microSD cards.

From the side of the double LEDs is placedBig speaker (Big BOX Speaker). Thanks to which the phone sounds very good: deep bass, rich midrange, no noise and high volume at high frequencies.

For convenient typing, anticipating typosa fairly large alphanumeric keyboard with Latin and Cyrillic characters is built in. All buttons are coated with a special rubber compound to avoid cracking and damage. Moreover, pleasant tactile sensations will allow you to enjoy typing.

Compared to other phones, it is muchbetter protected from low temperatures. Since the batteries of ordinary phones and smartphones are not designed for operation in such climatic conditions, Stone V3S is very suitable for lovers of winter fishing and walking. Stone V3S, according to the manufacturer, is protected from water and dust. You should not be afraid to work with him in the field and in rainy weather, but the manufacturer does not recommend deliberately using the phone under water. This is understandable, because no rubber gaskets were found in the phone. Yes, in truth, I have some doubts about the protection against the cold, but there are enough videos on the Internet where the phone is submerged and frozen in the refrigerator.
The menu is standard, like all phones. There is also a Russian interface. There is also a voice recorder, FM radio, calculator and much more.


findings
The phone is assembled with high quality, slots andno squeak. This suggests that the phone is at least protected from dust. The flashlight in the phone is very mediocre, but the sound is very good.
Since it is also aimed at travel lovers, spending time in nature, hunters and fishermen, mushroom pickers and forest berry lovers, the compass would not be superfluous in it either.
Also, the headphones had to be included in the kit.
Hope the purchase of Stone V3S phone companyA $ 15 VKworld will not disappoint either my parents or anyone who wants to buy this device. The main thing is to be realistic and do not expect too much from a device worth three bottles of good beer.
