Shenzhen Jinhuima Technology Co., LTD, is the company behind the M-Horse brand. A young smartphone manufacturer that wants to take part in the aggressive budget market. They didn’t release many phones yet. After the release of the M-Horse Pure 1, which gained good reviews from many buyers they decided to develop a follow-up:
Design, Display & Camera:
To deal with the latest trend this Phablet uses a 5.99-inch screen in 18:9 ratio (1440 x 720 pixel, HD+). An edge to edge screen covers 76 percent of the body and comes with an IPS LCD Capacitive touchscreen produce a good view and a touchscreen that reacts like it is used to. The M-HORSE Pure 2 gives you full advantage of screen display having the screen almost reach the top. To achieve this beautiful full-vision design they placed the front camera somewhere else. Just like Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 2 camera is placed beneath in the right corner. It is equipped with a 13MP (8MP Interpolated) camera to shoot nice selfies. When turning the smartphone around you notice the backside is made out of glass. There are a double rear camera and a double led flash! Shooting pictures with the Pure 2 is better compared to its predecessor. With 16MP (13MP Interpolated)+2MP lenses you can create decent photos with a bokeh effect that are acceptable. The fingerprint scanner works amazingly good and reacts immediately. Furthermore, you can find the M-Horse logo on the back. Both sides are attached to an aluminum frame. Its measurements are 156.5 mm length, 75 mm width and 8.3 mm thick and feel great inside your hand.
Performance, storage & Battery:
The Pure 2 By M-Horse runs on an ARM Cortex-A53 MTK6750 by Mediatek which is an Octa Core 1.5GHz CPU. Equipped with an ARM Mali-T860 MP2 GPU it is possible to play the latest games. It’s not a beast in performance but it does the job well in Android 7.0. Multitasking is not a problem at all. The manufacturer stuffed the phone with enough RAM to open several applications. It comes with 4GB of work memory and gives you 64GB of storage for all your applications and data. If you want bigger storage you can expand the phone with a microSD card (Maximum capacity is 256GB!). When it comes to the battery, you should be able to be ‘on the road’ all day. 3800mAh (Non-removable battery) is quite big and will impress many users getting their hands on this device. M-HORSE decided to equip the Pure 2 with a USB type c port and the charger what’s included supports Quick Charge. Thanks to this technology you are able to recharge the phone at high-speed. To create a design which makes the phone more ‘pure’ the 2nd edition doesn’t have a 3.5mm jack. Instead, the phone will be shipped with a USB type c adapter so you can still listen to music with your beloved headphone.
The Bezel-less M-HORSE Pure 2 is not a very powerful phone but still capable to do all the daily things easily. The hardware inside this fabulous looking device is not the latest you can find in the budget segment. Thanks to this strategy the manufacturer can keep the price extremely low and make it affordable for everyone. Pictures taken with Pure 2 are decent but don’t expect magic! Multitasking, playing games, run applications, making phone calls… Everything works like it’s supposed to without any lag.
M-HORSE 2 is an excellent device for those who want a great looking phone without all extras.
