The Vernee Thor is an impressive little guy. What we have here is a 5-inch display with Gorilla Glass, 4G LTE, 3 GB of RAM, stock Android 7 Nougat, dual SIM, and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner – all for about $100. That is some serious value for money. We have a unit here at MobilityArena and we have been playing with it and are ready with our Vernee Thor hands-on review, as well as some photos of the device.
Vernee Thor hands-on Review
It is said that black is beautiful, and that is oh-so-true for the unit we have here. We are fans of grey too, which is the only other colour that the Thor is available in. Because of the screen size, it is quite handy. Because this is clearly a budget device, we are not holding out for great photos from both cameras, but we will put them to the test anyway.
The 2700 mAh battery sounds small, but we think we are just used to carrying around phones with 4000 mAh batteries. 2700 mAh coupled with 1.3 GHz processor and a 5-inch screen isn’t bad. Plus, Android 7 Nougat is great at power management. Again, we will have our full experience for you in our proper review.
The Vernee Thor is a 4G LTE smartphone, with support for four bands. Glo fans should not get excited: the network’s LTE band is not supported, but Smile, Ntel, MTN and Etisalat LTE networks are good to go. Also, because it runs stock Android, the ability to peg anything other than a 2G network is absent.
An octa-core processor (albeit clocked at 1.3 GHz) coupled with 3 GB of RAM should translate to smooth performance, and so far, that is the impression we have. Thor seems to be a very smooth performer.
We are already putting this small smartphone through its paces and our review will be ready shortly. In the meantime, enjoy a handful of photos the Thor posed for around us.
