By Jayanta Ghosh

Perfect for your work, home and enetrtainment need

Magıcon Ayane QS4 smartphone is by Magicon Impex Pvt Ltd  who are an importer and distributor of mobile phones in India. The company was founded in 2004 and deals in feature phones and Android smartphones. Magicon forayed in Mobiles Phones on its own brand in 2008 with a motive to offer feature rich phones in budget category.Currently, Magicon has a network of 320 Level 1,2 and 3, service centers across India.

Features:
The Ayane QS4 comes with a Dual Core 1.2GHz Processor, a 4-inch screen, 5MP rear camera, 1GB Ram and an expandable memory up to 32GB. It has a 4.0 inch display 2000 mAh battery and runs in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.The box includes a data cable, hands-free, air remote (separate keyboard), mini tripod stand for projection, user manual and one year exclusive quality warranty.

Design:
The Ayane QS4 is only four inches long so is highly portable, but has an LED projector built in that can cast whatever is on the phone’s screen onto any fl at surface, up to 42 inches wide. While the Projector is the main feature of this device, Magıcon decided to place the dedicated projector switch as a capacitive button on the display. A dedicated button on the side or on on top of the device would make more sense for ease the access. At the back lies an 5 megapixel camera with LED flash next to it. Around the lower part of the back there is a speaker out. The plastic back panel is easily removeable.The Ayane QS4 projector phone is not an eye candy product that you want to flash to people, as the main usp of this product is its built in projector.

Performance:
This isn’t the first phone with a built-in projector that we have seen in the recent times, many have worked and many vendors have discontinued. Magicon Ayane QS4 bring a pico projector on a smartphone feature to simlifies business presentations,entertainment or gaming experiences with a mere pointing at a blank wall or a screen without the hassle of setting up of equipment. The first impression of this is not impressive to us, as this device has nothing to flaunt lookwise and look just regular handset with a Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. . The 4-inch screen might be small when compared to the recent rise of big-screen handsets, but you have to  remember there’s a projector here. The screen itself is sharp enough and has good colours. An IPS screen makes up for the poor pixels per inch of the display, so even small text is easy to read and colours seem distinct, it also boasts a dual SIM.While regular apps and usage is fine and performes decently with multitasking without any lag. Though the audio output is not that impressive. The battery life  of this device gives us desired output of 3-4 hrs of heavy usage. Few things you need to know about this device is that the main usp of this handset is its projector however, the only condition to enjoy this smartphone’s projection is in a completely dark environment. The audio quality on the phone is average, whether through its built-in speakers or the earphones. It’s loud, but it just doesn’t sound like it is supposed to. But if you want to share your fevourite videos with your friend and family members or you want to do a quick  offsite presentation, then this device will not dissapoint you.

Pros: Bright projection, good battery life
Cons: Average audio, no Gorilla Glass display
