BQ Fast came to us in a traditional for the "budgetar" company red-white cardboard box. The front on the box, mark the presence of fingerprint sensor – a reminder of the key advantage of the machine. Back — list of key characteristics.

In the set of only the most necessary:

  • Charging unit on 5V.
  • the MicroUSB Cable.
  • Warranty card and manual.
  • the Battery (on the model of Fast it is removable).

The screen glued factory film, which can also be considered as a complete accessory.

BQ Fast looks cool – if you don't know the price of this gadget, on appearance it is possible to estimate it at least 10 thousand rubles. Of solidity of the camera clearly adds a neat circle of the fingerprint scanner and the vertical module dual rear camera. Cover is made of plastic, but the metal can not be distinguished.

To remove the cover easily. Below it two slots for the SIM and one under a flash card. Any combination of slots.

Механические элементы в большинстве своём размещены типично – за исключением разъёма для подзарядки, который поместили на верхний торец, а не на нижний. Сверху также присутствует разъём для подключения наушников (стандартный 3.5-Jack). the Bottom отведён под динамик и микрофон. Справа 3 механические клавиши – «Power» и регуляторы громкости. Left side пустая.

BQ Fast available in 3 colors: blue, black and titanium (gray). Us for review came in the color grey. This version seemed the most successful, as grey smartphone is equally great for both men and women.


Ecran BQ Fast – первая деталь, которая выдаёт бюджетный статус устройства. Несмотря на то что дисплей выполнен в соответствии со всеми актуальными трендами (2.5D-стекло, aspect ratio 18:9), it is not top-tier. A bit annoying vibration when pressing soft keys. To handle it will not work – only remove.

The screen has a low resolution – only 960×480. The user's discomfort does not cause visual image is not worse than on devices with HD screens. Here their contribution is making and the fact that between the protective glass and the matrix is no air gap. Viewing angles are wide and it's a nice surprise how cool the no tilt case, the screen content remains readable.


Primary camera BQ Fast able to take photos with blurred background – in fact, for this and need an extra lens. There are other shooting modes – namely "Beautiful face"and "Panorama". The camera supports HDR.

The images taken on the rear camera with enough light, are very decent quality.

Фронтальная камера имеет разрешение 2 megapixel. Есть режим «Beautiful face», а также HDR.

Performance and

Хоть смартфон и носит гордый и многообещающий титул Fast (то has «быстрый»), «на борту» у него самый обычный 4-ядерный чипсет MediaTek MT6739WA. При этом к скорости работы аппарата действительно нет нареканий. Смартфон не подвисает при прокручивании меню и смене рабочего стола, уверенно справляется с играми средней требовательности – теми, которые не требуют устанавливать гигабайтовые допфайлы по Wi-Fi. Залогом быстродействия, вероятно, является Android 8.1 Oreo – на Fast стоит именно эта операционная система. Вот как выглядит интерфейс устройства:

RAM on BQ-5515L 2 GB built – 16 GB. Built-in can expand up to 64 GB. Characteristics are standard for a budget model.

as for the sensors, there are two pleasant surprise. About the first we mentioned is dactyloscopy that works well, precisely defines the imprint in 4 cases out of 5. Not on every budget device will find a sensor. The second advantage is that it supports wifi at 5 GHz. The speed of data transmission over wireless networks is twice higher than that of devices that are deprived of this advantage.


A speaker placed on the bottom end, sounds loud and clear. When the volume slider mounted on the middle of the scale, the tone clearly audible even in crowded places. For better sound and technology "BesLoudness" – the traditional smartphones BQ.


The smartphone is a small battery – however, functions that eat up charge "in his eyes," no. Therefore, the battery capacity can be described as optimal. "Extend the life" of the apparatus will be able, by activating the standard for smartphones BQ function "Energy saving with standby"and "a power-saving Mode».

С включённым первым и выключенным вторым Fast, при условии использования в умеренном режиме (то has без интенсивных нагрузок), протянет на одном заряде полные сутки – и даже останется десяток процентов на утро. Под нагрузками (например, если пользователь играет) гаджет сядет на 4-5 часов.

Fast-charge BQ-5515L does not support. To fill the battery up to a hundred, to about one and a half hours.


BQ-5515L Fast – «бюджетка», замаскированная под модель среднеценового сегмента. Дизайн смартфона действительно «на высоте», хотя разработчики и не прибегали к каким-либо экстраординарным ходам. Гаджету has что предложить и с точки view функционала. В частности, устройство обеспечено достойной dual camera, способной снимать с эффектом боке, может похвастать неплохой производительностью и свеженьким Android 8.1 Oreo.

BQ Fast suitable for people who appreciate style and practicality, but not ready to overpay for the brand and for redundant functions – those that brag about more often than you use. Also new from BQ will be the perfect gift for a teenager – even fastidious. Just don't tell him how much cost a gift he'll never guess that in his hands the device of the budget level.
