However, with the advent of Android, the manufacturer began to feel noticeably worse.

Лишь процессор имеет некоторые проблемы. Здесь используется типичное бюджетное решение. Современные игры им запускаются, но настройки графики при этом придется снижать.

Sorry, optical stabilization is missing, which is somewhat distressing. And the camera was not very bright, as the diaphragm is revealed only to the value of f/2.2.

Despite a 5-inch diagonal, mounted the display has Full HD resolution. As a result, the pixel density reaches 441 PPI — it is unlikely that someone from buyers will complain about this setting.

  • Processor: MediaTek MT6580, 4 core, 1300 MHz
  • Screen: 5 inch, IPS, 1280 x 720 pixels

A very simple externally, the smartphone. When you look at his head involuntarily there are associations with a large number of Chinese phones. In short, the main advantage of the device is not design, and specifications. Part of the smartphone comes with a battery capacity of 5000 mAh. This parameter is enough for a half to two days of battery life. The device has not the most powerful processor, so it is unlikely that the owners will be hard to spend the charge for games.

Объем оперативной памяти может показаться небольшим. Однако для стабильной работы операционной системы и всех приложений его хватает, а большего желать от настолько недорогого аппарата бессмысленно. А вот на отсутствие fingerprint sensor действительно можно пожаловаться, придется полагаться на пин-код или графический ключ. Но если многие конкуренты с аналогичным ценником им тоже не располагают, то о 4G-модуле этого не скажешь. Впрочем, характеристики Philips S386 таковы, что высокая скорость передачи данных ему толком не требуется. Гораздо важнее то, что здесь присутствуют два слота для SIM-карт и свежая версия операционной системы. Немаловажным выглядит и факт наличия FM-радио.


  • Steadily working ON.
  • You can insert a couple of SIM cards.
  • A relatively good display.
  • Установлен Android 7.0.
  • Decent battery life.
  • Low cost.
  • The kit includes the additional back cover.

The structure of this smartphone comes with a display, created by technology, IPS. You can look at it from any angle — image distortion you'll notice. Screen size reaches 5.5 inches. This is the best option for the operating system and for watching movies. The video is allowed to watch not only via wifi, but with LTE networks. Even this screen has a decent supply of brightness. As a result, the picture is clearly visible even outdoors in bright Sunny day. And this is important, as the owner of Philips s616 processor will often use it to take pictures.

Работу девайсу обеспечивает мощный восьмиядерный процессор. Но не нужно забывать, что принадлежит он к бюджетному сегменту, поэтому в некоторых играх придется снижать настройки графики. Объем памяти можно назвать адекватным — для стабильного функционирования Android 5.1 этого вполне хватает. Устройство располагает несколькими датчиками. Однако в их число не входит сканер отпечатков пальцев. Нет здесь и гироскопа. Впрочем, это типично для смартфона, произведенного под брендом Philips.


  • Built OCTA-core processor.
  • Has support for LTE.
  • Very good camera with f/2.0 aperture.
  • Good display.
  • Is a support of two SIM-cards.


  • A simple front facing camera.
  • Don't have a scanner of fingerprints.
  • Is used quiet speaker.
  • High power consumption.
