Review of the budget “vinfona» Highscreen WinWin: a powerful battery and two rear cover




Even a year ago, a smartphone operating system, Windows Phone, you could buy at least 9-10 thousand rubles – more options available in the market just was not there. The thing is that Microsoft does not permit the use of its mobile “OSes” small companies: partners in the corporation chose my major vendors such as HTC, Huawei, Samsung and, of course, Nokia. However, towards the end of 2014 in the Microsoft «changed his mind” and was invited to the “club of Windows Phone» smaller manufacturers. Among them was also a Russian brand Highscreen, issued the autumn of 2014 two models based on Windows Phone 8: Highscreen WinWin and WinJoy. In this review, we consider the first device – it a little more expensive and poprezentabelnee last.


So, one of the most curious features Highscreen WinWin – the presence in the sales package of two removable plastic rear sockets: yellow and black. Generally Highscreen loves this piece: for example, Android-model Highscreen Omega Prime Mini delivered immediately with five caps (white, black, orange, red, blue).


Front of the unit, however, is black. However, the combination of yellow and black looks a winner, so installed socket yellow Highscreen WinWin is nice. Above the screen in his front camera, light sensor and proximity, earpiece. Below the display are three touch-sensitive keys with white backlight – a standard control for all “vinfonov.”

The power button on the right, volume control wheel – left, that is, the location of these “controls smartphone” is quite standard. Top – 3.5 mm headphone jack and port MicroUSB.


One of the important features of Highscreen WinWin is the battery – 2000 mAh on. Typically, the models in this class regardless of the OS battery capacity of 1 400-1 800 mAh. As a consequence, Highscreen WinWin working on a single charge for up to two and a half days – against half of counterparts on Android and have two low-cost smartphones on Windows Phone 8.1. The battery model is located under the back cover, there are two slots for SIM-cards and slot for flash card format MicroSD up to 32 GB.


The screen device is not considered very impressive: it uses a 4-inch LCD-matrix with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. Capacitive sensor layer and very sensitive, there is support “multitouch”. Image sufficiently clear and natural color rendering, but, alas, the viewing angles are narrow. This is a consequence of the use of the display, made by technology TFT-TN. However, the price of the device justifies this point.

The hardware platform used in Highscreen WinWin, – Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset 200 MSM8212 with 4 Dern 1.2-gigahertz processor. It’s pretty powerful, so that Windows Phone 8.1 interface is fast: no slowdown, not to mention the long hang. But the RAM in the machine 512 MB, which leads to problems with “advanced» 3D-toys: they store applications simply do not appear. Built-in memory Highscreen WinWin 4 GB, of which more than half is available. From wireless modules have Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G and GLONASS / GPS. Well, two “Sims” supported – was reminded of this again. The radio module is, however, another, so that both SIM-card available for making and receiving calls only in standby mode.

Cameras in two models – a 0.3 megapixel camera above the screen and a 5 megapixel rear. Very high quality images from the last wait is pointless, but the presence of AF few brightens up the situation. Text using Highscreen WinWin can take pictures, some small highly detailed objects – too.



About Windows Phone 8.1 say briefly: tiled interface has evolved since the days of Windows Phone 7 very much, and this version is quite functional OS. Plus, its design is very, very fresh. Yes, the software for this platform smaller, but everything you need – from a number of services “Yandex” and ending with Angry Birds.



The box that comes smartphone:


Configuration of the standard. Cable, charging unit, a simple headset and “waste paper”:


The device turned curious, by the standards of low-cost “vinfonov” it does have some nice features. For example, autofocus camera, front camera, powerful battery, support for GLONASS. Plus two rear panels supplied. So Highscreen WinWin no worse than low-end Nokia’s Windows Phone, and should thus cheaper to 4490 rubles against 5 500-5 600 rubles. And this is a serious cause for thought and a choice in favor of models from Highscreen. Recommend this machine to purchase is quite possible.
