Introduction:

Zync has earlier earned acclamation in the domestic market and abroad as well with its flawless tablets. This time the company is out with an awesome smartphone, Cloud Z5. It basically falls in the phablet segment as it is bestowed with a large screen and features a huge yet slim design. It is an Android-based gadget, which is available at cost-effective price tag. Let’s get into the insight of this device.

Design&Feel:

Talking on the design front, it is clear that the gadget resembles quite distinctly with the 1st generation model of Samsung Galaxy Note. Zync Cloud Z5 dons a 5 inch TFT LCD Capacitive Touch Screen with 480 x 800 pixels resolution, which works good and has great contrast at low brightness levels. The best thing about the display is that you will not find any difficulty to use this handset even in bright sunlight.

Zync Cloud is slim & sleek, and is also light in weight. The touch sensitivity of this phone makes the user comfortable to enjoy gaming as well as web browsing on this device. It comes with a glossy front and a unique home key at the bottom center. The Zync Cloud is featured with chrome finish on its sides. The rear part comes with a textured finish, which helps the phone to withstand scratches easily.

You will find the power button on the left side of the device. On the right hand side, there is the volume rocker. Overall, the build quality of this phablet is sturdy. It also ensures endurance and the protective plastic capacitive touch surface of the display helps in protecting the device from damage. However, it will not work as efficiently as a scratch guard.

Hardware&Performance:

The latest from Zync is backed by a 1 GHz single core processor. It is embedded with 512 MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory, which works great for all applications. There is a provision of 32 GB external storage with the help of expandable micro SDHC data cards.

If you are an avid gamer, then you will find this phone a good buy. You can even enjoy high definition games on this phone too. But the processor seems to be not so comfortable with HD games and heating can be felt on this gadget. Owing to its good hardware combination, you can enjoy multitasking on this phone. However, the device becomes slow if 3-4 applications are running simultaneously.

The phone is compatible with almost all applications. In addition, the combination of 1GHz processor and 512 MB RAM helps the device to perform smoothly. This Indian phablet intends to keep the users entertained and informed in the best possible manner. Empowered with a 2500 mAh battery, this phone once fully charged gave us around 4hrs of backup.

Another amazing part of this phone is the 8MP camera, which is simply superb. You can enjoy this camera with autofocus lens.  It definitely helps in enriching image and video quality. There is also a front camera of 0.3 megapixels which enables you to have video calling sessions.

With LED flash, the camera is effective for both outdoor and indoor mode and is suitable for capturing close objects.
