Morons Styler

The Switel esmart H1 is about as big as the Samsung Galaxy S5, but considerably thinner. The lightweight (121 grams) with its neat design distinguishes itself from the Android crowd. A wider aluminum frame cuts off the plastic housing, the back makes a good figure with their shimmering in the light triangles also on glamorous après-ski parties. However, the dance pad is quickly becoming the slide, because the back is very smooth. Because the edges of the frame is not fully complete with the rest of the housing, the Smartphone also leaves an unpleasant sensation in the Palm of the hand. Behind a cover on the left side of the case sits a combined drive bay for optional two microsim cards or one microsim-and one microsd card. The buttons for the volume and the on / off on the right side are not so good and feel shaky. Not so great: The battery is firmly installed. This comes in the device with a (very firmly seated) screen protector and a transparent Smartphone case from plastic.

Luscious display

The 5 inches (12.7 centimeters) wide full HD display (1920 x 1080 pixels) of the esmart H1 is pretty bright, contrasty and impresses with its high sharpness. Colours look strong, viewing angle problems are hardly present. Typing and wiping movements succeed also accurately. The display reflects while significantly, remains in most situations but good recognizable.

LTE and dual Chamber

The slightly outdated Android running the esmart H1 5.1 lollipop. The battery capacity on 2,100 milliamp hours matters little if you consider that the high resolution full HD display is a real power hog. You make connections with Wi-Fi in the older n-standard on 2.4 ghz and with Bluetooth in version 4.0. The fast data connection LTE with up to 150 megabits per second is on board, you must waive the NFC. If you need to no memory expansion, a second microsim card for a dual SIM function fits into the combination slot.

Slow photos with sweet colours

Cameras, Switel built a main lens 13 megapixels and a front lens with 5 megapixels. When outside, the rear-view camera will moderately well. Photos look slightly blurred and have significant noise. In terms of brightness and colors, there is no reason to complain. The HDR mode artificially brightens the snapshots and gives them a significant higher sharpness. Joy jumps, the images but not seduced. It fails the main camera indoors by it so garishly represents colors that a migraine attack is not excluded. For the same reason and because of the high blur pretty detail shots are also almost impossible to accomplish. Selfies with the front camera go alright, but also anything but crisp sharp. The video mode should not be better without a tripod use, as even small movements cause recordings to stutter and blur. Biggest shortcoming with the cameras is the recording time last – with the comparison test device Samsung Galaxy S6, take loose three shots while the Switel Smartphone with the first is busy.
