  • Ali

    Price is very reasonable if you compare to the crap Samsung offer with their budget lineup.

    • Muhammad Aamir

      If the phone can unlock then the price is reasonable otherwise the expensive packages of Ufone 3G is ridiculous.

      • waqas

        u can use 2g packages also..

        • Muhammad Aamir

          2G era has come to an end bro! :D

          • Sidd

            You Can Use Wifi Too…I Dont Think People Use These 3Gs And 4Gs When There are WiFi Network Available..

            • Muhammad Aamir

              Yeah, you are right. 3G/4G is a secondary source of internet not primary like Wifi or DSL. 3G is not for to download high end data rather it’s for navigation, social networking etc.

  • Fahad Hashmi

    This would definitely even more pathetic than QMobile and other such brands…

    • Muhammad Asad Khawaja

      Brother do you know what a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 MSM8212 is? Its is a 1.2 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 Processor which is way much better then a cheap MediaTek processors in Qmobile smartphones. and beside the competing Qmobile A115 costs 7500 Rs while this costs 6000 Rs

      • Uzair Farooqi

        Totally agree

      • Pol Priy

        MediaTek processors are also ARM, right? ARM designs CPUs and licenses the IP to various companies including Qualcomm and MediaTek who manufacture the processors and sell them to OEMs.

        • Shahid Saleem

          Not all ARM processors are equivalent in computing power. You can certainly find ARM processors from different companies that have the same speed (like 1.2 GHz) but vastly different performance.

      • Daas Nahk

        So much win! Snapdragon 200 is good enough to negate the lag. Also, use of Snapdragon processors should definitely pave way for CM based roms. Slightly disappointed because of Android version since KitKat is better suited to 512 MB ram devices but WTH, its dirt cheap!

        • Bilal Iqbal

          bhai GPU bhi hh..wo bhi kam krta hy..

        • Umar Azmat

          According to Ufone page it will go to kit kat. So no worry there. Front camera ,ram n rom is the worry part.
          N I hope they do have more colours too. Waiting for complete review

          • Hyder

            With this price nothing is worse part, especially when you consider its competing mobiles.

            • Umar Azmat

              true. but it would have been great if they could have increased the ram to 1gb atleast. As i am already dealing with Noir A10, n i know the bottleneck i face with 4gb rom n 512mb ram.
              but still waiting for the review

              • Dalpat Rai

                specifications are great except the ram and 4gb rom. It would have been awesome if these two have been doubled.

      • awaisdbz

        Yup : Snapdragon is the best company :)

        • Umar Azmat

          Snap dragon is better than mediated which I agree too

      • Abdullah Farrukh

        Agree.. huawei is much better then Q-

      • ali

        Qmobile A115 is dual core and no 3g

        • Muhammad Asad Khawaja

          Yeah thats a bummer Lemme say that it competes with Qmobile x25 rs7999

    • Yasir Mahmood

      Indeed It Would be Pathetic
      But Kindly Consider the Price ,Which is worth for it :)

      • CE

        Well it’s not Pathetic as it is CE certified, not like Qmoblie (without any certification or standards to follow)

  • Shaykh ul Islam Tahir ul Qadri

    Kya is phone main container wali or gullu butt wali game chalti hai?

    • Aman Chawla

      Bilkul its Android

    • Ali Salman

      Bhai iss tech website ko to baksh do..apni siasat kahin aur karo…u better know ye game chal gaye ge…bus apna agenda ly aya karo.

      • Shaykh ul Islam Tahir ul Qadri

        Mera agenda to rozna 8 bjy har news channel pa aata hai lakin lagta hai aap bhi mery laang march main bhaty hai jo mery agenda ka pta nhi.

    • Sagar khan

      Qadri sb soch badlo. Naya Pakistan Ban raha hai Smart Phones b naye ayenge… Ab Game To Ap Or Khan Sab Par Banegi…

  • Azeem Ullah Hasan

    Will have to see how it turns out to be. I’ll be quite surprised if it turns out to be usable, esp. at this price point.

    • aamir7

      It is usable, I can confirm. Didn’t try any game — not my thing — but otherwise its pretty smooth. Browsing works fine, so does the videos. Though I haven’t installed many apps on it yet.

      • is it made locally by Ufone? Really? and please tell is it locked to Ufone?

        • Aman Chawla

          Ufone is saying its network locked, but I can’t confirm. Yet to check

          • Agha

            itz not an iphone… Unlock ll be easy

            • Aman Chawla

              Everything is Possilbe bro

        • Pol Priy

          We have no semiconductor industry or even assemblers of smart phones so it is not made locally. It’s a chinese phone that they’ve branded as their own.

        • Umar Azmat

          Locally hardly, Chinese definitely I believe.

        • Tahir

          Most probably it’s a board imported from some Chinese supplier, while the outer shell and software branding applied here.

      • Azeem Ullah Hasan

        Pleasantly surprised. The most important thing is covering the essentials and if it can run flappy bird, who will complain? For its price the specs sound pretty terrific, they might be selling it at a loss.

      • Junaid Siddiqui

        Please post Quadrant, Antutu & NenaMark 2 benchmark scores, an in deapth review would b appreciated aswell.
        I’m quite eager to know its real life performance with 512mb ram

        • Hero

          Here’s Antutu Benchmark Pic:

          • Hero

            why i can’t post a pic ?

            • Adi

              Bro is ka touch response kesa hai????

          • salman

        • Hero

          Never mind here’s the url: http://i.imgur.com/azMUrAI.png

      • Umar Azmat

        Games review needed with lot of apps. Games like medium to high end .

      • Noushad Yahya

        how is display n speed … bit doubt of hanging bcz of 512ram

      • Jahanzeb Afridi

        boss is kay speakar nahi hai tou is say phone pay koi effect tou nahi parta

    • Ameer Hamza

      please confirm if viber or voipworks??

      • mahmood

        yes android main sab ho gaye ga whats app viber line skype atc

  • Just one question is it network locked?
    I think it’s good for those who are tight on budget but still want a 3G enabled phone.
    Nice move Ufone!

    • aamir7

      Ufone is saying its network locked, but I can’t confirm. Yet to check.

      • Thanks, Aamir, I’m waiting for Zohair Chohan’ review now!

      • Ahmad

        bro ager software kerwa lya jae tou unlock ho jae ga sub sims chalen gi ?? if u know plz tell me ?

    • Abid Hussain

      even if it is network locked .. how hard it is to unlock an android phone! :P

      • So can you tell me how can I unlock any (if not all) android phone?
        as far as I know rooting the phone wont unlock your phone right?

        • Abid Hussain

          you will have to wait till i get one of these! :p sorry!

          However there are several ways on the internet for unlocking of well-known phones like HTC Android series and Galaxy series!

        • Whehshi

          Go to saddar mobile market. They’ll unlock it for you for Rs 150.

        • Agha

          Check On XDA Developer…. almost Every Andriod is Unlockable

    • umer

      cnfrmed from call center its unlocked for any network

      • ibrarghani

        matlab koi b sim??

      • Hassam

        Nope it’s network locked.

    • umair

      yes, Wcdma means you can’t change sim even you can’t change the ufone sim its fixed number you get… only 1 number permanently can’t change it though

    • awish

      dear the phone has two major problems,

      1 . bettry timing
      2. sparking in speaker and mic during call

      so i suggest u not to purchase this.

      i went to ufone main office to claim warranty and even they refused to entertain.

      if you still want to buy then plzz purchase from me, i get that 10 days before.

  • Faisal

    better then Samsung crap !

  • Ameer Hamza

    Is viber or VOIP supported ? .. RAM is just less otherwise it is just great

    • Hassam

      In this price no one can offer 1gb ram.

      • Uzair Farooqi

        I bet in this price no one could offer even 512 Mb Ram :-D

        • Pol Priy

          They’ve cut corners on the battery.

    • Ahmad Wahid

      Yes, Viber can run on all Android devices with that specs.

  • Ameer Hamza

    Quad core with 512mb ram ? strange

    • Haris

      I think its dual core as this is Be Phone Social 4 and be phone is dual core how they can claim quad core?

      • Masood Mustufa

        Install cpuz on it… it will show all the core … dual or quad.

    • Tahir

      Well, so is the Moto G (3G)

  • Ameer Hamza

    Is viber or VOIP supported ? .. RAM is just less otherwise it is just great

  • Muhammad Shakir Aziz

    Are we going towards network locked highly subsidized smartphone model of USA?
    Battery doesn’t look very good. A 2000 mAh could have been a reasonable juice to run it all day.

    • Hyder

      Its actually enough for a phone with this screen size and specs.

  • StickMaestro

    Ufone ki coverage is very poor in Karachi! Posh areas like Clifton and PECHS donon jaga signal nahi atey, I work at teen Talwar clifton no 3G, PECHS BLK 6 home ayon tu 3G nahi; Bas on road Sharah-e- Faisal per 3G milta hai !

  • Azi

    is this network locked?

    • Omair Ahmed

      It is container locked, just like Tahir-ul-pqadri :P

  • Hassam

    Kindly share its SOC(system on chip) also is it adreno 302 or adreno ??? Clocked at 302 MHz ? Well you don’t have to answer the other question because after knowing the soc we can figure it out what it is and what the phone is capable of.

    • Muhammad Asad Khawaja

      Snapdragon 200 MSM8212 1.2Ghz Quad-Core

  • Ali Tahir

    Wow it’s so damn cheap

  • Raza A Butt

    500mb Ram is not enough with quad core

    • Uzair Farooqi

      LOL what do you expect in 6000 RS handset?

    • Uzair Farooqi

      Even Iphone 4 has 512 Mb RAM bro :-P

      • Muzamil Ismail

        Iphone 4 has totally different kernel which is way more efficient than android’s linux kernel. you cant compare an android with iphone totally different apprach

        • Uzair Farooqi

          Well i know that. And the main problem with Android is Fragmentation.

      • Agha

        WTF REally :O I 4 has 512 RAM

        • Agha

          Andriod should learn From iOS … i4 runs smooth even
          with lots of Appz

        • Uzair Farooqi

          Google it nd u will know ;-)

      • Raza A Butt

        iphone 4 got 800MHz processor u cant compare iphone 4 with this set

  • imran khan

    Go nawaz Go !!!!!!!!!

    • lazyboss

      lol

  • aasim

    looking good phone and reasonable .. lets see its response regards touch , speed etc .. if any 1 finds glitch regards touch .. paise fazool honge .. otherwise specification is fine against prise

  • Hamza

    isme ufone k ilawa koe aur sim chalegi?

  • Shaykh ul Islam Tahir ul Qadri

    This is not a locally manufactured handset but its customized Be. Social 4 Smartphone for Ufone. Original handset comes with dual sim and 1 gb of ram.

  • WAQAR

    On the picture above. On the box it is written “upgradeable to kitkat”, is it true?

    • Shaykh ul Islam Tahir ul Qadri

      So as to their Website says…

    • Pol Priy

      Upgradeable to lollipop.

    • Rameen khan khan

      how can i upgrade to kitkat??

  • Talha Shah

    Can This Phone Support any other Sim ??

    • sher

      no. network locked to ufone.

  • Mohammad Ali

    Amazing

  • Hyder

    Have to say it looks great on paper with such a miserly price tag.

  • ali azhar

    yar yemobile to buhat acha hai or is ki price bhi lekin yar ufone bekar hai agar kisi or ka hota to zaroor leta!

  • ali azhar

    Hey @aamir7:disqus admin hows its bettry life can it can be used for a whole day or just afew houres??

  • Haris

    I think its not Quad core its dual core as it is be social 4 phone which is same is 1.2 ghz dual core not quad core and others specs are same :)

    • Ïām Gumŋääm

      Its 1.2 GHz Quad Core :/

      • fahd

        Is it bad for this price tag ?? U need to compare it with other sets at this price range then you will know 1.2 Quad is better.

  • ibrarghani

    @aamir7 agar ye sim locked hai to plz unlock karne ka tarija b full review main bata dijiye ga.

  • ibrarghani

    And please post full review ASAP!

  • Usman Riaz

    Informative. The price is under my budget.

  • Yasir Mahmood

    Ufone-Truly AweSome !!

  • azhar

    kya yeh single sim hai ya dual sim?

    • Muhammad Aamir

      Single!

    • usman tariq

      Dear Azher,its a sinlge sim cellphone

  • Zubair Gu

    ufone nailed it

  • Umar

    Asalamoalakum. Just bought 2 and they are excellent value for money. Really impressed by price to value ratio. And I am pretty sure their stock will not last long. Infact in my opinion Ufone’s own staff will buy stock using under the table means and will sell it in open market at some what higher price.
    If you are a normal user and not looking for very high end phone or already own a higher end phone and want a value set for second number, well then this is the mobile you should get. Another interesting thing is that it has Qualcomm Chipset, which is a big plus. its not Mediatek, and even mediatek quadcore are not possible in this price range. Thumbs up to ufone for this

    • Umar, it will be great if you can share Benchmark score of this set.

      • Umar

        Sure here you go:
        Quadarent: 8134
        Antutu: 16200

        Both scores are excellent considering price. Battery results will be posted after atleast 2 charge cycles.

        • Thanks!

        • Azmat

          Thanks for providing information in detail….i am going to purchase it today after reading comments.Lets hope its Stock will be able in Sialkot.

  • Geekpk

    Could be used as a backup phone. Good deal. But Ufone 3G coverage is pathetic.

  • Geekpk

    Wow android 4.4 kitkat update also will be given.

  • immaduddinkhan

    I am eagerly waiting for a Hands-On review! At this price, its awesome for developers! A bit of lack in the ROM, but the rest is fine. Waiting for the Hands on

  • qamar _rk

    Bhai 6000 me tu ufone baazi lay gaya or ram 512 he mil sakti hai itnay me .
    Or user ko pata nahi kia hogaya hai bhai android phone hai tu sub apps he chalain ge na koi poch raha hai viber skype or container wala game chalay ga . Herat hai in logo per batain bari bari or hain ponka man.

  • ahsen

    I am sure it will be batter than Q mobile .

  • Naseeb Kathia

    just one problem. single sim …..

  • Seems like a cousin of Huawei Y300 from the images :)

    • Zohair your are supposed to be preparing a review of it?
      are you?

      • As soon as I get the phone, but I guess its lost in transit. Let me check with Aamir.

    • Muhammad Aamir

      Brother! It would be better if you add a topic in your review, “How to unlock the phone”, you know the expensive packages of Ufone 3G is not less than a leg-pull.

      • Sure thing, I hope it would be quite easy to unlock it but can’t confirm until I have the device.

      • Hassam

        Patience it’s not 1000 rupees wala. Classic phone that anyone can unlock it from market in 100-150 rupees, it will take time to fully understand it modem/radio if anyone has enough knowledge so don’t hold your hopes to high.

  • Dr. Abdul Jabbar

    What would be battery timing. A day or less???? Any idea???

    • Hassam

      More then a day as its processor is very power efficient but battery timing depends on usage.

  • SachaAadmi

    Brilliant! Its simply the best you can get in this range. A very nice initiative.

  • Ahmad Raza

    is this a dual sim phone?

    • Umar

      No Ahmad its a single sim phone and takes a regular sim also known as mini sim. locked to ufone network.

  • Nadeem Ehsan

    It is a BePhone model by name of B.Social 4. only one this is confusing, the B.S.4 is Dual Core, whereas, ufone offering Quad Core? Anyways looks good, it is a global company but battery seems to be less powered.

    • Umar

      It is Quadcore for sure and pretty smooth too. I am high end mobile user and still I did not find any special lag even with 512 mb ram, which means rom is optimized efficiently and quadcore are compensating for low ram pretty well. As for battery yah 1430 seems low but I can confirm after atleast 2 charge cycles. But you should also take into account that 800X480 resolution is not taxing on battery as compared to 720p or 1080p. Plus A7 cores are designed to be more power efficient then performance oriented. 1.2 ghz is also lower clock speed then higher end phones which will also help battery. So in my opinion if battery is optimized efficiently then it can survive atleast one whole day of average smart phone use with these specs. But fingers crossed until 2 charge cycles

      • Nadeem Ehsan

        1,2 GB is user available out of 4GB internal memory. What about moving apps to Memory Card? Does it support ths?

        • Ibn Abi Sa’ad

          it runs 4.3 OS so you can move apps to mem card

        • Umar

          Yes it does. But after 4.4 upgrade usual kitkat restrictions on external memory access will apply surely. But look here is the thing, if you are looking to play 1.7 gb data games on phones catering basic usage smart phones user then your expectations are unfair. Its a basic smart phone and it is exceptionally good at that. In its price range without any doubts it is on top.

          • Ibn Abi Sa’ad

            Can u please install the app cpu z from play store and
            share with us the results? of all the tabs SoC, System, Battery and
            Sensors. it is preferable if you share the screenshots

  • qamar

    I bought today 2 sets, working flawless
    Camera result normal as attached pic

    • usman tariq

      Dear Qamar, I think you should appreciate this innovation of Ufone. Don’t compare it with Samsung S4 or Apple product.

  • Nadeem Ehsan

    SachaAadmi can u confirm how much user available memory u got out of 4GB internal?

    • qamar

      1.2 GB available

  • danish

    I used it good phone and antutu is 15500 but build quality not too good very light weight back camera is average vga cam is not too good but in this price it is the best deal

  • Bilal Iqbal

    yar agr unlock py 500 bhi lag jay to aala hy…kmal.kr dia agr network lock na ho…love telenor 3g speed ans coverage

    • Umar

      Bilal unlocking availabilty time period and cost varies from set to set. One more thing its not made by Huawei or Zte, which are the usual manufacturers for networks in pakistan. So unlocking will remain a question mark for atleast a few months in my opnion. Besides its not wise to unlock phone during warrenty period as it will surely void its warrenty. Specially for phones manufactured by relatively less known companies. But still its excellent value for money

    Can u please install the app cpu z from play store and
    share with us the results? of all the tabs SoC, System, Battery and
    Sensors. it is preferable if you share the screenshots

    • Umar

      Hahahaha. That was the first thing that i did on this set after i bought it in the morning. Although i deleted that app after confirming soc and sensors. It is 1.2 quadcore qualcomm A7 cores not of krait core variety but still excellent. It does have gps which is a plus in this price range. It has proximatery senson which is unique in this price range and works fine. Accelerometer for sure.

      Benchmarks were:
      Quadarent: 8134
      Antutu: 16200

      • Ibn Abi Sa’ad

        Thanks

        Two months before I bought Haier Y716 but it slipped in water and got dead. I was looking to buy a new one and this for sure is good then. I wish it had had double Sim option.

        • Umar

          I bought 2 today. Default wallpaper by ufone is really low resolution which is a stupid move by ufone as it makes first impression a little dull. But once you download some higher resolution wallpapers, screen will imidiately look different. Overall set is very decent looking, viewing angles are good with little contrast shift on extreme angles. Overall screen is very usable.

          • Ibn Abi Sa’ad

            Thanks Umar, How are the screen colors? are they dull or bright?

            • Umar

              Welcome. Colors are fine. Screen is not the brightest but certainly not dull. By default screen is cranked up to full which is again a stupid move by ufone, checked on both sets. As it will result in certain poor battery and colors will look over saturated if someone doesn’t check brightness setting. But overall screen is very usable .

              • Umar

                Cranked up to full brightness i mean, missed brightness in the sentence

    • Umar

      Gpu is adreno 305 which is very good performer in this price range, infact excellent in this price range.

  • awaisdbz

    Can anyone share benchmarks detail ?

  • Ali

    I personally believe it’s the best phone to have in such price range. Regarding the low RAM issue, I think once we get root access, we can use swapper to allocate a portion of SD card as additional RAM and only swapper, apps like seeder, setCPU and greenify can really enhance is processing speed. It’s a very fine move by Ufone!

    • Muhammad Aamir

      The phone has efficient processor that not let to slow down it. You will able to run mostly apps smoothly.

  • nad

    Are you sure it is capacitive touch ? i dont think so . this is a resistive touch for sure . the screen colour is ALSO showing the reality when it is not powered ON in above pics .

    • fahad

      bhai koi ye bata sakta hai is ki 512 ram hai magar free kitni a arhi hai aur use kitni ho rahi hai

    • Umar

      It is capacitive touch screen and I am using it. Plus screen is perfectly usable just don’t compare it with iPhone or S5’s. Read my reply below and you will get to know all about its screen quality. But I should say that for its price range screen is much better then my expectation and I have high end phones for my main numbers, so if I dont feel bad about its screen after using full HD screen then its certainly not bad.

    • Umar

      As for screen colors well in that case its actually fault of ufone staff who were responsible for putting branded contents from ufone inside phone. All the wallpaper inside phone stamped with ufone symbols or otherwise are very low resolution and low quality. Just change it with any downloaded one and screen will look totally different. Ufone staff made a stupid mistake in this regard as it makes first impressions fuzzy.

      • syed zed

        i just wanted to know is the phone upgradable ? cause i mean to buy this phone

  • Jahangir

    Iske liye new SIM leni paregi ya ham apni current SIM bhi use kar sakte hain?

    • Umar

      Jahangir new ufone sim is not necessary. But it does take regular sim so if your previous sim is micro then you will require a replacement SIM or sim cutout

  • ali

    Like ufone other companies should launch CHEAP 3g cell phones. zong and warid should launch 4g CHEAP cell phone.

    • Umar

      Yes all companies should and I think they will. Which will be great to promote smart phones for the masses. But I do believe ufone subsidized price in case of this phone somehow beause its chipset is not that cheap, its screen pretty usable and all other stuff is decent too. Which makes me think somehow that this particular model might not be unlockable that easily other ufone will be at loss. Its a risky strategy for pakistan that ufone has taken and ufone will take measures to avoid phone unlocking. I believe people should not unlock phone particularly for this model as if this ufone strategy works, we will be seeing great subsidized phones from other companies. I m pretty sure ufone is not getting any profit from this model if not loss and its just to gain some user base.

  • syed zed

    other companies should give on contact like in USA because that could boost their 3G and 4G consumer market if locked phone on a 2 year plan for 3 thousand a month 2 thousand for the phone and the 1 thousand for there data plan (2 thousand for 24 months makes 48 thousand and 24 thousand for 2 year data plan making them have a net customer pool) is kinda ohk they could work out some loopholes and other things making high end phones easy for everyone.

    • Not gonna work here! Suppose they give you a phone on one year contract and the next day you got your phone snatched what you and they’ll do then?

      • syed zed

        yeah, that happens in USA too there are two things they do 1)mobile insurance and the 2)is make a bloatware which can not be detected even if the phone is rooted and after the mobile is opened it automatically sends its coordinates to the company cause if they simlock it like iphone no where to access the sim card slot the sim stays intact able to send coordinates or something it can work out easily the codex to write the code is not that difficult.

  • Farhan

    PleaseTell Me How To unlock network in this Set. Thankyou.

    It looks light weight and plastici like a toy. Its design does not get my attention. They have saved operating cost out of it therefore the price is very low. The sole purpose of this mobile is package selling. I would rather go for better options available in the market which are not very expensive but at least they look expensive and they have better specs.

    Hi, Has any one experienced very fast battery battery draining problem. when i use an application the battery percentage goes down very fast. I think it wont even last an hour if i continue to use it. its the 2nd day i am using it but i am not satisfied with battery draining.

    Secondly i checked ram and only 42mb are free usually. is it same for everyone.
