Numo S10 Review - Intro
My iphone took a dip in the sea recently. Dead. £700 for a iphone X (£60 a month with Vodafone). So I took a punt on a Numo S10 for £100 from Amazon. Findings below:
Numo S10 Review - Screen
I can find no difference between the screen on this Numo S10 and my iPhone 6s. It is a clear screen, sensitive to the touch, I have no problems with it.
|Screen is Perfectly Adequate in Size and Quality|
Numo S10 Review - Buttons
There are volume buttons and a power button. . . and that it. They are stiff to operate but I like that. I should imagine it would annoy some people though. The rubbery feel is quite nice. I have no problems with the buttons on the S10.
|Buttons are Heavy but have a Quality Feel|
Numo S10 Review - Performance
Snappy! Lag free Android experience, works A OK. Loads apps in a snap. The Numo S10 has a quad core processor, and 2GB of RAM. I haven't done any gaming on it but its seems fine. I have no problems with the performance on the Numo S10.
Numo S10 Review - Port Covers / Flaps
Oh Numu! It was going sooooo well. These port flaps were obviously designed last thing on a Friday. There are 3 in total that cover:
- Charging Port
- SIM / SD Card Port
- Ear Phone Port
The biggest faff is the charging port, it is hard to get the slim fit micro USB connector to fit in the port, without put the port cover / flap in the exact right position. Its very annoying.
|Dual Sim or Sim & Micro SD . . . handy!|
|Deep Recess and Annoying Falp Make Plugging in Ear Phone Bit Tricky|
|Charging. . . .|
|. . . again Wrestle with the Flap / Cover in order to Plug in Cahrger|
Numo S10 Review - Conclusions
A good value android phone, supposedly water proof, quick performer, excellent screen and build quality. . . apart from the port cover / ports flaps which let it down somewhat.
Would I recommend. . . not sure. It price is a big plus point.
The port flaps on an Otter Box Armour are fine to use despite being large and chunky. Here we have a nicley implemented phone, let down at the last minutes by overly small and fiddly port covers.
Oh no Google Pay. . . which would have been handy. Lack of NFC assures this.
