Photo belated. IIIF150 Air1 - cheap armored smartphone

Something is wrong with smartphones from the hard-to-pronounce IIIF150 brand. I'm always late with them.


IIIF150 Air1 is the little brother of the IIIF150 Air1 Pro smartphone that I told about at the beginning of the summer.

The differences are as follows:

  • Less permanent memory.
  • Worse than the camera.
  • Only one color.

I remind you that the IIIF150 is, sort of, a brand from a fairly well-known third-tier manufacturer called Oukitel, but this is ... unofficial, or something.

Let's get acquainted.

The smartphone looks very reasonable for its money. But in the endOh, he's weak. The iron filling is technically fresh - the chipset is called MediaTek Helio G37. In fact, this is about the same as the ancient MediaTek Helio P35. AnTuTu will have around 120-130 thousand parrots.

The memory is pretty good. 6 GB of operational and 64 GB of permanent (6 + 128 GB for the older brother). Plus, there is even support for memory cards (hybrid tray). But the memory itself is very slow.

The screen is fairly standard. Diagonal 6.5 "(102 cm²), resolution 1080x2400 (405 ppi), no increased refresh rate. Most likely, like the older brother (for which there is already a review)You) the screen is also not bright enough. It will be difficult to use a smartphone in the summer in the sun.

The battery is average, 5000 mAh (charging speed 18 W). Taking into account the rather considerable weight of the smartphone (252 grams), I would like, if it’s quite frankly, to see a bigger battery here. But what is, is. It seems that all the excess weight has gone "for protection".

With protection, everything is traditional. The characteristics list the magical abbreviations IP68, IP69K and MIL-STD-810G, which translated into Russian means that the device is not afraid of water and the following �It is shockproof.

Cameras. The front camera has a resolution of 8 MP (16 MP for the pro version). There are two rear cameras, 20 + 2 MP - main and macro. (The Air1 Pro has three cameras, 48 ​​+ 20 + 2 MP, and the middle one is a night camera with infrared illumination).

Other. There is an NFC module, a side fingerprint scanner, Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi. No standard audio output.


IIIF150 Air1 is now available on AliExpress. The current price is more than humane, only $117.17 (₽7370).
