The Winds Mobile Genius V has a 2.5D curved edge on the screen and a full aluminum back. The screen is a 5.5 inch Full HD display with a 480 PPI, the screen is contrast well and has nice colours, sharper looking compare to many 5.5 inch display with lower PPI (usually around 300+ PPI).
Ergonomics wise, the thumb can control both the power button and volume rockers easily with the pointy finger able to reach the fingerprint scanner which can unlocks the phone and support gestures. You can use it to snap photos, swipe to view content in gallery and control media playback, similar to what Honor Smartphone at low price. There are other gesture modes as well.
The Winds Mobile genius V weight 210 grams, heavy, yes BUT it pack a 6000mAh battery that can do reverse charging most competitors are able to do up to 4100mAh. This is great for viewing online media content as well as a powerbank to charge another device if needed to. Our battery test shows is can last your 12 hours and 35 minutes before you need a charge, where the input port is fast charging compatible at 9V 1.6A. Can do reverse charge at 5V 1.1A much faster than some phones in the market. It can charge an Iphone 6 2.7 times.
The package comes included with a hard flip case, total 3 screen protector (2 thin, 1 thick), decent earphones, USB-OTG for reverse charging and finally a budget phone that come included with 9V 2A fast charge, this is the first for me. Well known brands don’t include a lot when compare to Winds Mobile (double thumbs up). Audio test is available in the video review.
The Winds Mobile is powered by Octa Core MT6753 (4X 1.5Ghz + 4X 1.3Ghz) with a GPU Mali-T720. It has 3GB RAM and 32GB Internal storage which is expandable to 128GB external storage. It support 4G connectivity. Its running Android 6 Marshmallow, tho I wish it will support Android Nougat in the future.
