You can flaunt the latest IPhone models, but worth it once you drop this camera in a puddle — and he immediately turn into expensive junk, which is no more and tears will not look. Because and becoming more and more popular protected devices are modest, little-known USssian producers. Users believe that if you pay for reliability, not a recognizable commodity icon.
the Company Vernee is making yet another attempt to conquer the "protected" segment, and "heap has" — the first device of the company with patronage, Active, came just over six months ago and have not had time to cover it with dust on the Windows. New Vernee V2 Pro is another level. Including the price – is the unit approximately 17 500 rubles (depends on the store). But just look at the features, and I understand that on a scale of coolness he occupies a place somewhere between Beara Grylls and Chuck Norris.

content and design
Although the gadget itself is durable, the manufacturer decided to reduce the probability of damage in transit to absolute zero. The device is packaged in a square white box of cardboard, thick enough that it is not prominaetsya, with what force it may crush fingers or hand. The design is very austere, but it is rather a plus — the packaging looks stylish and unusual.
Inside the box in addition to the gadget are:
of the Case, as the protective film, the kit doesn't, but when you see the gadget Pro V2, you know that it's excessive accessories.
The user who before was protected smartphones, can shock the dimensions of the apparatus Vernee V2 Pro. The device weighs over 250 grams, has a thickness of about 13 mm. At a miniature hand there is absolutely no chance to reach with your thumb to a distant corner of the screen. But despite the fact that the gadget is frankly cumbersome, it cannot be accused of coarseness – he looks not ugly, but rather intriguing.
At the V2 Pro low rubber elements, a thermoplastic polyurethane covered only the corners of the housing. Back cover made of plastic with a punctate texture, designed to reduce the risk of slipping out of the hands of the gadget. Of course, plastic is not normal – according to the manufacturer, this material is military grade, withstood 1000 (!) the power of the tests. The side faces are reinforced with metal inserts.
Vernee Pro V2 are protected by the certificate IP68. It is able to operate in a temperature range from -30° to +60°, can withstand immersion in salt water at a depth of 1.5 meters (where you can stay for half an hour), to cope with underwater photography. He's completely impervious to dust and sand, rain, not terrible. The front surface is covered with protective glass Corning Gorilla glass with rounded edges.
Mechanical elements on V2 Pro is not traditional. The machine has no standard headphone Jack, so the top edge is completely blank. Bottom only USB Type-C connector, which just headphones and you can pick up (using supplied adapter). Right — massive Power key and volume controls. On the left is an additional button, with which you can quickly take screenshots or pictures (depending on what application is activated). Also on the left side slot for SIM-cards and memory stick, to withdraw which no needles – just picked up a nail. Slot combo, so you can put 2 SIM cards and flash-card at once.
The quality of the Assembly to the apparatus can not be any complaints. You will spend hours searching for a minimal blemish, but it will all be to no avail. All components are perfectly adjusted to each other – backlash and gaps to find.
FullHD screen Pro V2 diagonal of 5.99-inch covers over 81% of the front surface. The image quality on the displays, covered with a safety glasses, often decried, however, the novelty of Vernee is not the case. The picture on the screen is amazingly clear and remains so, under what angle it may look. Watch clips in HD quality – a real pleasure.
Disappointment was the fact that you can adjust only one parameter of the picture – brightness. Contrast, color temperature, white balance and other settings to configure "by itself" will not work. There is a useful function "Adaptive brightness", which allows to save battery power, but the "read Mode" is missing – that probably upset book lovers. V2 Pro of electronic "reader" not the alternative.
If the first producers of chasing megapixels, but now the race has reached a new level – now the priority number of cameras. Vernee V2 Pro have their entire 4 – 2 front and 2 rear.
Camera основного блока имеют разрешения 21 Мпикс и 5 Мпикс, отличаются быстрым фазовым автофокусом (срабатывает за 0.03 секунды), а также светосилой f/2.0. В светлое время суток снимки на заднюю камеру получаются очень чёткими и сочными – не каждый профи сумеет отыскать изъян. А вот при съёмке в условиях недостатка света изъяны так и бросаются в глаза – чёткость уже не та, появляются засвеченные фрагменты.
Эти проблемы наверняка удастся устранить, «поковырявшись» в настройках фото – благо has режим Pro, за изучением которого можно убить часы.
Front camera is impressive only by the resolution of its photo sensors (13 MP and 5 MP), but the result is disappointing. It is clear that the device is designed for an audience, which all these fashion trends with narcissism "on the side", but in this case why put the second lens?
Performance and memory
С быстродействием у Vernee V2 Pro проблем нет – вполне ожидаемо, если учhas, что у аппарата аж 6 GB оперативной памяти. Пользовательской памяти тоже предостаточно – 64 Гб в теории, 54 Гб на практике (почти 10 GB is occupied by system files and the built-in applications). Memory can be expanded by installing a flash-card MicroSD (up to 128GB), but in this case you will have to sacrifice one of simok.
The chipset is an 8-core MediaTek Helio P23 (aka – MT6763V), made on 16-nanometer process technology. To the "pebbles" from MTK you can be prejudiced, considering that Snapdragon processors they don't rival. We're not going to convince you – just give the facts. To the benchmark Vernee AnTuTu V2 Pro scored almost 80 000 "parrots". This is a very good result for the middle price segment.
When testing in games, the V2 Pro have also shown themselves well. Check 3D fighting games was excellent: Tekken no lag, Mortal Kombat X hang was recorded only at the time of execution Fatality. Fresh Asphalt 9 went "like clockwork".
Vernee V2 Pro is running Android Oreo 8.1 с фирменной оболочкой производителя VOS – которая, признаться честно, нам безумно нравится. Тому has несколько причин:
- VOS простая, понятная и привычная. И да, здесь has классическое меню, а не только рабочие столы.
- VOS energy efficient – thanks to the battery life of the device increased by 15%.
- VOS visually at least different from pure Android.
And finally from VOS has no built-in adware applications cluttering up the memory. Only the starter pack, without which it is impossible to get certified.
The set of sensors from V2 Pro just a luxury. The device is equipped with:
- With a fingerprint sensor, which works flawlessly and removes the lock for 0.1 second (you can save up to 3 fingerprints).
- NFC chip for contactless payment.
- Function face recognition Face ID (time of release – 0.2 seconds).
- with the 4G category CAT Internet when loading can accelerate to 301 Mbps.
- with the Wi-Fi Module, running at 5 GHz.
- with heartbeat Sensor (placed near the camera the rear).
- a Sensor of Earth's magnetic field, allowing to use the device as a compass and a pedometer (or pedometer).
Is impressive, isn't it? It seems like the developer has managed to equip the unit with all the sensors that the well-known theory of modern smartphone.
Vernee V2 Pro is moderately loud. The developers have worked to make the sound as good as possible without using any special software and outlandish technology. For the improvement of sound to the smartphone responds BesLoudness – standard solution for Android.
"Weight" of the device more than kompensiruet its remarkable autonomy. V2 Pro is provided with powerful battery for 6 to 200 mAh, which can not be easy. According to the manufacturer, the smartphone is able to "stretch" battery life:
- 4 days under normal, moderate use.
- 840 часов (то has больше месяца) – в режиме ожидания.
the results of the tests it became clear: the manufacturer is not disingenuous facts and do not embellish. If the gadget does not strain your games and runs through the benchmarks, it really works on one charge for at least 3 days. And activated through the settings "Power saver mode" for even longer – although in this case some functions (e.g., geolocation) is not available.
Vernee V2 Pro поддерживает fast-charge – батарея наполняется до 65% за 1 час, полностью – за 2.5 часа.
Your humble servant never held in my hand the other smartphone, which would be as similar to battering weapon as Vernee V2 Pro. There is confidence in the fact that now after a nuclear war will survive not only cockroaches. However, the V2 Pro is not only about how to protect themselves at night from the shaven-headed young men or to call for help, being waist-deep in the mire tropical swamps. And in a normal office everyday it can give the user all what he needs.
among the main advantages of the device:
- The operating system is the modern version Android1 (with convenient proprietary shell).
- a Huge number of sensors including NFC.
- Great autonomy.
- Внушительный объём оперативной памяти (6 GB).
- Clear and sharp FullHD screen.
- Protection standard IP68 and a good build.
The shortcomings of the device are as follows:
- Too heavy – weighs more than 250 grams.
- There is no standard connector for headphones.
- Combo slot for the SIM.
V2 Pro – он как Джефф Монсон. Тот только с виду брутал-убийца, а познакомишься поближе – узнаешь в нём магистра психологии. V2 Pro одет в броню, но его защита не идёт в ущерб функционалу. К сожалению, среди protected smartphones таких пока единицы.
