Colors K2 Review

Design

The Colors K2 Pearl Black has a premium unibody design with a polycarbonate build. We were really surprised with its glossy unibody form factor and slim design, not usually seen in mid-range smartphones.

However, there is no access to open the back panel, therefore no access to the battery, which might be disappointing for users who want to use an extra battery in case they need one.

Display

The Colors K2 Pearl Black features a 5-inch full HD screen with a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels. It has a IPS screen based on One Glass Solution (OGS) technology with a Gorilla Glass 3 layer for protection. The screen looks bright and lively, looking exceptionally good and sharp as well. However, color saturation will look to be faded. Viewing angles looks good. Overall the screen is brilliant.

User Interface

The Colors K2 Pearl Black runs a slightly tweaked version of Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean. Some of us may like Stock android experience, but Colors preferred to add their own customized UI on the top of Android.

There is no Official news for Kitkat 4.4, the latest version of Android. That’s a worrying factor for many customers because they want to live with a dream of using the latest software as soon as possible. Hopefully, Colors will come with the official news on Kitkat 4.4

Hardware

The colors K2 Pearl Black is powered by a 1.5GHz Mediatek MT6589T quad-core processor and a PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU. It has 2GB RAM with a 32GB of internal storage (23GB user available). There is no microSD card slot, which is in fact a big disappointment for users who want to store Movies and pictures in large magnitude. The device is powered with 2000mah Battery, which might not be enough considering the fact that it runs a 5 inch Display.

Camera

Colors

The colors K2 Pearl Black has a 13-megapixel auto-focus camera with a second generation BSI sensor for low-light imaging. The phone comes with a modified Camera app and allows you to capture photos in HDR and Panorama modes as well.

The camera of the colors K2 Pearl Black takes good photos in day light. But the low light imaging was pretty average. Moreover, with shaky hands it captures Blurry images sometimes.

The 5-megapixel front camera also takes decent shots and is great for video calls.

Gaming Performance:

The colors K2 Pearl Black have an above-average gaming performance. It can run mid-end games like Temple Run 2 , Subway Surfers, etc. with ease but you might notice slight lag and dropped frame rates while playing high end games like Mortal Combat 4, Dead Trigger 2,etc.
But considering the price tag you have to forgive this kid.
