Recently, the Chinese company has unveiled a new smartphone – Mpie M7 Plus. The device is equipped with a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED-display, 64-bit, eight cores MT6752 with a frequency of 2.2 GHz, 4 GB of RAM, 13-megapixel camera, the battery capacity of 3200 mAh and Android 5.0 Lollipop as an operating system. And most importantly, that the smartphone is still only $ 135. While Mpie is an existing manufacturer in China, other smartphones with similar characteristics but different price certainly causes mistrust.
Less known Chinese companies often point to excessive specifications to attract the attention of buyers to the device, or install a special version of Android, which demonstrates the false results of the tests. In fact, the smartphone installed the cheapest components. As it turned out, Mpie M7 Plus is no exception. Many popular test have been done in the system and when you re-install from third-party sources to run a special version of tests, it show false information about the characteristics of the device.
The description of M7 Plus indicates that the smartphone comes with MT6752 processor clocked at 2.2 GHz. But, chip used in smartphones is one with a frequency of 1.7 GHz only, and in the maximum configuration it can have the frequency of 2 GHz. There are also doubts with respect to all other characteristics. For example, third-party tests have shown that the smartphone is not equipped 5.5-inch display with a Full HD-resolution but a 4.6-inch screen with a resolution 960h540 pixels.
