QMobile Noir Noir W20 is an ultra low budget smartphone offered by the Pakistani smartphone brand. The phone is 3G compatible and is very small in size with just a 4.0-inch display. If you want a phone which is under 5,000 rupees in price, this is the right phone for you.
QMobile Noir W20 has a small, 4.0-inch display with a lot of bezel on every side which makes the phone look a little bit bigger. The phone has a cheap plastic on all side, but you can’t expect more from a phone in this price range anyway. The Micro-USB port and a 3.5mm headphone jack are present on the top of the phone. The bottom houses just a microphone.
The power button and volume keys are present on the right side. There is a 2 MP camera present at the top left of its backside.
QMobile Noir W20 has a 2 MP primary and a VGA front camera. Back camera also has a flashlight. The camera is below average but you can say it is good for this price range. The images are hardly visible in low light conditions. The front camera is also same. You don’t want to use it for anything else other than using it to get a quick glance at yourself. It isn’t meant to be used for selfies or group pictures and, to be honest, no one expects to find a decent front camera in this price range.
QMobile Noir W20 comes with 512 MB of RAM. It is simply not enough for the phones today as the apps have grown in size and Android OS itself needs a lot more RAM.
The phone starts to lag even if you open Facebook and WhatsApp together on it. You can not simply multitask on this phone without getting annoyed.
The phone is simply not made for high-end gaming. You can play some basic games like the Subway Surfers and Temple Run. Anything more than that and the phone will start to lag. So if you want to play some high-end games on your phone, you need to increase your budget and get something in a higher price range.
