belated. IIIF150 Air1 Pro is a rugged armored smartphone with a night camera

Smartphone under the strange name IIIF150 Air1 Pro(aka F150 Air1 Pro) has been around for a while, but has managed to stay out of my sight until today. He would not have come across further if his review had not appeared on Mobile-Review today.

IIIF150 is, sort of, a brand from a fairly well-known third-tier manufacturer called Oukitel, but this is ... unofficial, or something.

Let's get acquainted.

In general, the device looks very good for its money.reasonable. But of course he is weak. The iron filling is technically fresh - the chipset is called MediaTek Helio G37. In fact, this is about the same as the ancient MediaTek Helio P35. In AnTuTu, I predict 100-130 thousand parrots.

There is a lot of memory. 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. Plus, there is even support for memory cards (hybrid tray). But the memory itself is very slow.

The screen is pretty standard. Diagonal 6.5″ (102 cm²), resolution 1080×2400 (405 ppi), no increased refresh rate. In the review they write that the brightness of the screen is insufficient, in summer it is difficult to use a smartphone in the sun.

Battery average, 5000 mAh(charging speed 18W). Taking into account the rather considerable weight of the smartphone (272 grams), I would like, if it’s quite frankly, to see a bigger battery here. But what is, is. It seems that all the excess weight has gone “for protection”.

With protection, everything is traditional.The specifications list the magic abbreviations IP68, IP69K and MIL-STD-810G, which translated into Russian means that the device is not afraid of water and is slightly shockproof. Out of curiosity. It is formally promised that the smartphone will remain operational in the temperature range from -20 to +55 degrees. In fact ... It is unlikely that anyone will bother to check it.

Cameras. The front camera has a resolution of 16 MP.There are three rear cameras, 48 ​​+ 20 + 2 MP - main, night and macro. The night camera is equipped with a powerful infrared illumination that reaches up to 20 meters. Examples of photographs taken with all these cameras can be found in the review already mentioned.

Other. There is an NFC module, a side fingerprint scanner, Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi. There is no standard audio output.

IIIF150 Air1 Pro is already available on AliExpress(one, two). As part of the current sale, they ask for only $148.57 (₽8440) for it. Given the sudden sharp drop in the domestic dollar exchange rate of AliExpress, this is not so bad.
