Vernee V2 Pro: Design

Vernee V2 Pro will please you first of all with its design of the case – it is not afraid of anything and you can drop it without fear of being left unconnected. Of course, no one recommends that you take a gadget and throw it at the tile, but the manufacturer has thought through the protection against moisture, dust and dirt, so you can wash your smartphone directly under the tap or go camping with him and not think about getting wet.

Military standard MIL-STD-810G means protection against falls, extreme temperatures, and other troubles, the certificate IP68 is protected from water and dust.

The case of Vernee V2 Pro is made of polycarbonate, dense metal covers the edges of the smartphone, the corners are hardened with solid rubberized plastic. The thicker edges of the smartphone not only add to its longevity but also give room to increase the size of the battery.

The large part (more precisely 81.3%) of the front surface of the phone is occupied by a large 5.99-inch screen with an aspect ratio of 18: 9. The top of the screen is protected by Gorilla Glass, which is covered with an impact resistant layer.

There are side frames, but as for a durable smartphone, they are rather thin. The thickness of the upper frame is slightly larger, but there all the necessary elements are placed – a talking speaker, 13.0MP + 5.0MP front camera and sensors.

The Home button is missing, as in the predecessor  Vernee V2. It will be interesting to know how it will appeal to users who usually need stronger buttons in these devices with a distinct tactile response.

On the back, there is a dual main camera with 21.0MP + 5.0MP sensors, a dual LED flash, and a fingerprint sensor. Next to the cameras is a pulse measurement sensor.

The layout of the controls is standard: on the right is the power button and the volume rocker. On the lower edge are placed a microphone, an external speaker, and a charging slot, and the SIM card tray is placed on the upper edge.

The dimensions of the Vernee V2 Pro are: length 164.2 mm, width 79.4 mm and thickness 12.1 mm. Weight – 259 grams.

The smartphone can be bought in a completely black color, or in black with red protective side inserts.

Vernee V2 Pro: Display

Vernee V2 Pro has a 5.99 inch IPS screen with a resolution (Full HD +) of 2 160 × 1,080 pixels and the ratio of the sides is 18: 9.

It’s easy to calculate, its 403 pixels per inch of density, which provides such a high pixel density that all fonts, icons and other design elements look as if they were inscribed by the master of Japanese calligraphy.

From scratching the screen protects the Corning Gorilla Glass.

The image on the screen looks quite natural, the colors are juicy, and the contrast is high. We cannot say a single bad word about white balance and color rendition.

The brightness level is also good. This phone is perfect for night reading, and for watching movies anywhere on the beach.

Vernee V2 Pro: Performance

For the performance of Vernee V2 Pro the eight-core processor MediaTek Helio P23 (MT6763) is responsible, which can be considered a good middle “class”. Although I would like to see something here from Snapdragon, for a change. The processor consists of 4 cores Cortex-A53 with a maximum frequency of up to 2GHz and 4 cores Cortex-A53 with a frequency of 1.5GHz. The video accelerator is Mali-G71, only MP2 and with a frequency of 700MHz.

RAM – 6GB LPDDR4X, storage memory – 64GB eMMC 5.1. It can be expanded with a microSD slot up to 128GB.

The smartphone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo.

However, what surprised me most was the presence of an NFC chip. It turns out that by buying Vernee V2 Pro, you can use Android Pay, read and write down subway maps, travel cards and so on. Many manufacturers still do not want to make available devices with NFC. Vernee – Well done!

Vernee V2 Pro: Camera

The Vernee V2 Pro has four modules at once: two front and two rear. Just a couple of months ago it was “nonsense”, now, the campaign, the routine. The Chinese, at least. Well, more.

The front camera has a main module on 8MP with a diaphragm f/2.8 + the second module at 5MP. The main rear camera is 21MP and with a diaphragm f2.0 + the second module is a 5MP + dual LED flash. I will not torment and immediately say that the second modules are fake. At least the second module of the main camera.

The second module of the main camera is intended, as I understand it, to blur the background. This means that both cameras should be different – focal lengths and other parameters – to create a depth of field. But in the camera, you can use only software “blurring” the background of everything that is not in the center of the frame. There is no sense from this even when used in suitable scenarios: the function makes a part of the frame just fuzzier, without creating a bokeh effect. It looks unnatural.

With good lighting, you can get quite good photos, but at night you will have to try very hard.
