The battery life of the Maxwest Virtue Z5

The Maxwest Virtue Z5 has a battery capacity of 2300 mAh. It has pretty much the same battery capacity as a standard smartphone.

The processing capability of the Maxwest Virtue Z5

The Maxwest Virtue Z5 uses the Mediatek MT6582M CPU with 1.3GHz×4(Quad core). The memory capacity is 1GB. It has low spec processing power and its performance is lower than typical smartphones. Also, memory space is slightly smaller than average smartphones. There are many times when storage space feels insufficient. Ultimately, it's just barely enough to get by.

The camera of the Maxwest Virtue Z5

The Maxwest Virtue Z5 has a back camera with 8 MP. The rear camera performance is about the same as a typical smartphone. The image quality for longer distance photography is less than satisfactory, but on the whole, there are no issues with short distance photos.

Review of the product design of the Maxwest Virtue Z5

Rating of the ease of carrying it around and getting it in and out of bags or pockets

When deciding whether to buy an Maxwest Virtue Z5, the first important factor is its size. Smartphones are used daily, and so it is important how easily they can be carried around and pulled out of bags or pockets. This review assesses how easy it is to carry the Maxwest Virtue Z5 around and put it away.

Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around

The Maxwest Virtue Z5 is easily held with one hand, and its size allows it to be firmly held. It is small enough to be held in one hand together with things like a wallet, but this may be a bit difficult for ladies with small hands.

Ease of carrying it around when placing it in your pocket

It doesn't feel strange even when you put the Maxwest Virtue Z5 in a pocket. In addition, when sitting on a chair with the phone in a pocket, it can be kept comfortably as it doesn't get caught on one's clothes or body.

Ease of getting it in and out of your pocket

Sometimes taking the Maxwest Virtue Z5 out of your pocket doesn't go so well as it gets caught on fabric easily. It's safe to assume that some people will find it stressful that it is difficult to take it out smoothly.

Ease of getting it in and out of your bag

The Maxwest Virtue Z5 is a size that allows you to take it in and out of your bag and use it with ease. Also, since it is compact, even if your bag is small it won't get too bulky which is convenient.

 

Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling

It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the Maxwest Virtue Z5 by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.

Ease of grasping the phone in one hand

To many people, the Maxwest Virtue Z5 is of a size which allows it to be operated with one hand. Still, for people with small hands, it may be a bit difficult to do so. It becomes slightly larger when a case is added, and depending on the person, I think this may make it slightly harder to operate with one hand.

The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand

The Maxwest Virtue Z5 is light, and I think it can be operated with one hand for a long time without feeling tired. However, it may be a bit heavy for those who are not used to using smart phones. Also, as it is not a heavy smart phone, its weight does not really change when a case is added.

Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand

Holding the Maxwest Virtue Z5 with one hand tends to feel unstable when buttons are displayed on the edge of the screen. The size of the buttons doesn't make it impossible but it does make it more likely that you will drop it so take care.

The size of the buttons on the App

The buttons displayed on the Maxwest Virtue Z5 are large, and therefore it is difficult to press the wrong ones. While some buttons may look small depending on the app, you probably won't feel that stressed when you actually use it.

Ease of typing in letters using the flick function

Keys on the Maxwest Virtue Z5 can be pressed even when held with one hand, but your grip may weaken when trying to flick the buttons at the edges. As a result, it may become unstable in the hand when flicking quickly, but it won't be easy to drop as long as you are careful.

Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion

If you aren't being careful it is really easy to mistype when using the Maxwest Virtue Z5 with two hands since the buttons are so small. In addition, typing at high speeds is pretty difficult and I can't say its very suited for it.

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the Maxwest Virtue Z5 is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.

The size of the letters and the ease of operation

In general, the Maxwest Virtue Z5 displays characters and pictures in sizes that are easy to see. While some characters may look small depending on the app, they are not really difficult to see. Therefore, it can be said to be more than adequate for uses such as searching the Internet and messaging.

Ease of reading sentences

The screen of the Maxwest Virtue Z5 doesn't display characters very clearly, and the outlines of letters can appear jagged. It's not at a level where it would inconvenience you when displaying large text, but smaller text can feel pretty hard to read.

The beauty of the overal screen

I can't say that the screen of the Maxwest Virtue Z5 is very beautiful. The dots that often appear on digital images are visible when photographs or videos are on screen which can make the display seem a little dull. Every now and then I did feel it was a bit ugly, but this probably won't be an issue for regular use.

Ease of writing sentences

For the Maxwest Virtue Z5, the on-screen keyboard covers part of the screen when typing, but there is sufficient space for operation. Its size is suitable for entering long sentences, but I feel it may be a bit clumsy when editing office documents.

Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?

When using the Maxwest Virtue Z5 for calls, emails, or for chatting the processing power can be insufficient, and you can experience slowdowns as a result. When using apps it felt like the motion would get caught up which was a bit stressful. For ordinary more relaxed use this slowing isn't at a level that would bother you, but its performance is not suited for fast control.

Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?

The performance felt lacking when using the internet and SNS. Sometimes the apps felt like they were running slowly. If I kept using it when that happened apps would close suddenly or stop completely.

Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?

For example, if you're using multiple apps simultaneously, such as swapping between SNS or chat frequently, it will gradually start to operate slowly. If you use it for a long period in this way apps can begin to forcefully close due to lack of memory and can crash.
