The Mpie S5 Phablet is another great hit for portable-touch-screen end-users. The display is crystal clear on its 5.0 inch display. The casing is still attractively plastic. The resolution is grand with its 854 x 480 pixels FWVGA screen, and as a standard comes with an OS that supports audio file formats (MP3/WAV/AMR/AWB); video file formats (3GP/MPEG4); image formats (JPEG/BMP/GIF/PNG/GIF); and e-book formats (TXT/CHM/DOC/HTML). In addition to those entities–of great smartphones and tablets–the Mpie S5 features an FM radio (earphones needed to operate)–and operates in over a dozen languages (built-in feature).
Basically, brightness adjustments (‘with a pinch’); Wi-Fi connections; Airplane mode or Bluetooth; and the battery display are not complicated to locate and necessary screen tapping is not an issue as before–more speed and less fuss for the busy finger. Also, there is an option to bypass the unlock PIN or password in order to access the Notifications and Quick Settings panels, for those easy going end-users. It is all about preference.
Project Butter: Android OS
As the product of “Project Butter”, the upgraded Android OS is seemingly a much more mature platform compared to the 4.0 (“Ice Cream Sandwich”) and the 4.1. The ideal upgrade related to touch input: more triple buffered graphics, maximum CPU clock speed, and this kind of smoothness is acceptable on older hardware (i.e. Motorola Xoon and the Kindle Fire)–of course, while remaining the main contender within the worlds of marketable smartphones and tablets.
The 4.2 has a rebuilt camera interface with a new radial menu that is easily accessible through the touch screen camera app. This spectacular feature supports Flash usage, white balance, and Exposure with a single-finger functionality. Moreover, the Photo Sphere is for those photography enthusiasts. This 360-degree panoramic mode is ideal for those complicated views of mountains and extraordinary landmarks. That type of feature is compared to the Photosynth software–made by Microsoft. Additionally, the new Android 4.2 is enabled to take quicker snap-shots with ease; easily capture multiple shots on the go. There also is a Gallery application for the 4.2.: Cropping and rotating images, with the option of adjusting the contrast levels–just the beginning with this platform. The recorded full history of adjustments is kept in the memory.
