Fly with camera brand - sounds strange, but true. Not long ago, the store has a new Fly LX800 Sapphire model, which positions itself as a manufacturer of luxury. What makes this deluxe model? It is mainly a manufacturer made a bid for materials such as glass external display, sapphire crystal, front and rear panel - metal, in addition, in cases where it is held in the skin.
Many users, after the announcement of the model responded to this device is pretty cool: yes, it has to offer second-order company in the premium segment. Even we in the editorial was not taking seriously spill with reference to the fact that the brand Fly unlikely to get anything good in this segment. But the opinion of many, including our editors, changed dramatically after the model sold. The device was a success, to understand this, just take a few minutes in hand. Perhaps the positive emotions associated with the fact that the original manufacturer of this device does not seem a little known Chinese manufacturer, but the Taiwanese company Asus.
Many probably wondered why the title of the material cited by Vertu. Yes, of course, to some extent this is due to the materials selected, but there is also another point: the design LX800, there are elements borrowed from Vertu device. For example, the front panel below the external display is a plastic overlay "metal", realized in the form of extension with the letter V, located near the speaker and the shape of a logo, Vertu. Also similar to the structure and position of the speaker is to play the ringer. Yes, of course, these factors are minor and do exactly the same as the Vertu device, but still some similarities there.
The fact that the device was created with a view to the production of virtue, and can be seen on a poster LX800.
As you can see the poster on the device causing logo Fly with tweezers, it is a kind of reference to the manual collection, such as cell phones Vertu. Of course, the fly will not be the hand that is no doubt that here, like how the manufacturer decided to show the identity of the model in the premium segment. In fact, it is obviously not quite correct, the poster does not attract attention, and as he was stationed mainly in men's magazines of the good life, attractive to its readers is reduced to zero . Manufacturer would be useful to highlight the relationship between the model of the luxury class a little different, for example, a poster with a system that is surrounded by really expensive stuff: pens, Montblanc, Longines watch, arranger and ST Dupont lighters. Yes, it is clear that such an idea as old as the poster, but it would show that LX800 is not lost, even on the basis of animal products and free in harmony with them.
We must say a few words in the box next phone, which is black, made of high quality cardboard. The lid is attached to the magnet, after the opening is divided into two parts, both above the material covered with a velvety surface. In one of the branches is hollow, in which the phone by calling the store documents and a CD with the software. The second part contains all the accessories that come with the phone. Packaging machine only produces a positive impression, all made with high quality and rigor, without glare.
Fly LX800 model is made in a clamshell with an internal antenna. Its size is small (92x46x23.5 mm), while it weighs a lot - 120 grams. The device is designed for men and for women it is too big and heavy. In the model of women surveyed did not cause any sense, yes, they said, the assembly of high quality, metal, leather, beautiful watch on an external display, with sapphire crystal watches offer, but imagine such a device would not be bought. But men LX800 is not due so much joy, but positive emotions precisely by those who have shown the device, there was none that he did not.
Dwell in detail in the material body, which makes the device. On the front panel at the base there is an insertion of the skin, in our sample at an angle, it was clear that the skin is stretched is not perfect. Apparently, the problem of our device, because after seeing several samples from different shops of this problem, we did not realize. However, when you buy should pay attention to the tightness of the skin. During operation, do not be afraid that some of the skin with the product is of sufficient quality, and will be careful not complicated.
Video, the appearance of the unit (mov, 6.5 MB)>>>
In the middle of the front is an external TFT-LCD with a resolution of 128x128 pixels (21x21 mm) capable of displaying up to 65,000 colors. The screen is good, it fades in the sun, but the information is still readable. The screen is covered with sapphire crystal, its obvious advantages, this glass is very scratch resistant. Sapphire is mainly used in watches, telephones, it is quite rare. There is probably no doubt that the super-expensive, for example, sapphire set even the cheapest models of Tissot watches, which cost 100 euros. Just for phones must produce another form of glass and therefore a different size. Especially companies that produce sapphire crystal, presumably busy with orders from the point where the company is profitable, and they vary by orders of cell phone manufacturers because they are less bulky and more difficult to manufacture.
Use of sapphires in the model by Fly on the whole justified, of course, is not so much desired by the user in real life (I do not think the usual plastic cup so fast it would be useless) but allows you to lift state of the device.
The area above the external display is made of metal, which is the camera lens, which is virtually nothing is protected, and next to it - the LED flash. Flash is a part-time and the service indicator because it is so bright, you have to disable its operation in standby mode, or in the evening / night, is a major obstacle. In addition, the flash can be used as a flashlight, is sufficient in the closed position, the phone, hold the key to activate the camera.
The remaining elements of the top cover is made of plastic covered with quality, soft to the touch. Plastic strong enough for the appearance of marks and scratches. Probably caused money from thin plastic inserts just because they leave the body more than anyone, but, as experience shows, not good with them, for all tests that don 'have not lost their looks.
The left side is the key to activate the camera, and a little below - the volume control. The keys are pretty good that comes out and is very soft when pressed, as it is accidentally pressed, there is almost always agree, not very nice. Now, if the manufacturer has become more rigid when pressed, would correct the situation. And here in the keys I have no complaints, they are exactly where and to and from the fact that they are quite well off, they are easy to find by touch.
At the bottom of the unit is a headphone jack (2.5 mm) and a miniUSB connector. Both connectors are covered with a plastic flap attached to the body, it is not credible, it seems that after a while ceases to be fixed. These conclusions were made for the simple reason that every day to open the lid easy. Honestly, it looks like a hat is not very good, would cost the manufacturer to stop using plastic and the cover of high quality rubber.
There, on the merits, there is a hole to attach the lace / strap, which is open only when the rear cover removed. Generally difficult to imagine someone with this machine around his neck, yet strong enough to model this approach to transport.
On the right side is just the speaker to read the opening of tones, as already mentioned, and location, and to some extent the appearance of the hole coincides with the Vertu device.
Open the camera with one hand easily for convenience along the hull made deep furrows. The sliding mechanism works well, the unit closes with a box of cotton, I would recommend just to hold the lid. If this is not done fast enough the rubber stoppers on the bottom half of the unit will form a strong imprint on the place of contact with the top.
The opening angle of the device is quite large, which is very useful during the discussion. Hinged on the right and left side of the phone are silver, with a groove Insert an Allen wrench, of course, is only for decorative moldings, and no practical benefit to there, but they look pretty good. These pads have caused me to connect the lock back cover vehicles Vertu apparently the producers were trying to do LX800, and so on.
Opening the phone, you can see the national averages of TFT-LCD with a resolution of 240x320 pixels (30x40 mm) and can display up to 262,000 colors. The screen quality is good, the picture is bright and contrast. The sun, it is still decreasing, but the readability of information. Fly LX800 model first among vehicles, which is QVGA display, after the model it will SX240 market, also in its arsenal display with a resolution of 240x320 pixels. Top models under the screen using the brand Fly with a QVGA resolution now becomes the norm, while for the simplest models will be used with low resolution screens.
Visually, the feeling that the device's keyboard is made of metal, in fact, it is not, is only plastic, coated with metal. The navigation unit is composed of a key four-way navigation with the inscription "OK", two soft keys and a cancel button and receive a call. All keys are large and easy to use.
The number keys are large and easy to use, are close to each other. The surface of the keys to melkorebristaya, scoring alternating checkerboard design on the buttons of a button. It looks great on the keyboard, the most brilliant metal effect finish, but it's only a problem when typing messages or numbers in the sun. The key symbols on a sunny day become completely unreadable, the drive is on the hands, like the Rubik's cube, trying to get caught by the situation, where the characters are somehow distinguishable. Another problem is that the keyboard is that, over time, damage to keys (small dents in the slot). Of course, it takes time before the keyboard becomes useless against such damage, but it's not a very pleasant, which is generally not valid for premium vehicles.
Already marked with keyboard characters such as Latin and Cyrillic, the last of which is slightly larger. The backlight is white, evenly over the entire surface.
In the back of the camera, we see black plastic box light touch. This box need not only beauty, and the device does not slip on the surface.
The remaining part is the cover of the battery compartment metal. Interestingly, all users have noticed that the shape of the lid LX800 device borrowed from Nokia 8800, but this copy is good, coverage is still in harmony with the general style of the phone. The cover is good, there is no game, the probability of its occurrence in time is minimal.
Under the hood is a lithium ion battery, 750 mAh, according to the manufacturer, the phone can operate up to 180 hours standby and up to 3 hours of talk time. Conditions of Moscow networks the device worked two days from 20 to 30 minutes of calls per day and up to 3 hours to listen to music and radio. The results, of course, not great, but overall not bad. The advantage of the model is the presence of standard miniUSB connector, and the ability to charge the battery when you connect your phone to your computer.
There is a small machine comes with an external battery charger, which also has a miniUSB connector and can charge the battery industry, a charger, and when connected to PC via USB. While charging the battery sidewalks in front of the bright orange. Travel Charger is plastic, soft to the touch, the bottom has rubber feet to ensure that the device does not slip on the surface.
It is good that the manufacturer uses an external power source to charge the battery, but I think many users would be the best option for a small full glass or base. The explanation is simple: the cradle of the device would look great on your desk, you should recharge the unit, and one more thing - the device at the base would be easier to use as a webcam, since this function is implemented in the LX800.
The battery connector is a SIM card, and the other - in the form of a microSD memory card slot. The device can easily see the slot for memory cards up to 2GB. It 'a shame that the manufacturer failed to take the memory card slot, hot swappable, so if you have removed the card is to turn the phone off, remove the cover and the battery. When you connect your phone to the computer offers a choice of three modes: Removable disk, webcam, or a COM port. Interface is a USB 1.1 speed is not very big, but if you copy large amounts of data, it is perfectly acceptable. When connected to a PC without installing additional drivers to operate the memory device, which is 56 MB and the memory card.
The main menu is a 3x3 matrix. Drawing icons is good, as you move the menu, there is no stuttering. The submenu represented in a vertical list. There is fast navigation using number sequences. Fonts are well designed, they are small, smooth, the optimum thickness. But here, face disadvantages: the fonts are small in size, scope, and not to people with poor eyesight will be uncomfortable to work.
Video, the menu to work with the device (mov, 6.3 MB)>>>
Phone menu is a bit confusing, some things are not where they want, but the truth can eventually get used to.
On the navigation button in standby mode is assigned access to specific menu items, you can not replace them. But the joystick down to access the item called "My Menu" where you can add up to 10 frequently used menu items.

MP 3 Player lets you play songs at different speeds, but can be in a specific folder in the phone memory or memory card. In general, if not going to be in the correct folder, you can still scroll through the file manager, as can be heard, but only one at a time and with a single unit. In the same player, the playlist is automatically updated (or phone memory or memory card), manually add or remove a song you can not. You can create playlists, share songs on the album and the artist, and a complete list of tracks. Player controls are carried out using the navigation keys. The only regret is that the shuffle and repeat only be enabled by setting the player does not do it fast. Also, you can choose preset equalizer settings. The player has three types of registration, the user can pick up at your convenience. The player can work in the background, just press the hang up.
FM radio. The phone memory can store up to nine stations, the number is small, but for most users, this will be sufficient. Search for radio stations can be automatically or manually. It is possible to set the sound to a system of external speaker, but the helmet still be linked because it is used as an antenna. Radio can be recorded (as WAV or ARM), the recording time limited only by available memory (for a camera or card). The reception quality is built into the radio is good.
Java. The installation of Java applications is approximately 4 MB of memory, the device supports MIDP 2.0. For many, the good news is that applications can be installed via WAP or copy them from your PC. The procedure is quite simple: copy the download to the phone memory or memory card (jar installer), find the file manager via the phone and start the installation.
The unit is two Java pre-installed games: Strike Wolf (up and down and down the wolves to protect the sheep), two (card game).
The network. The device is installed in the WAP browser version 2.0. This section has been dropped and the SIM-menu (if available), even if it is not clear why it is here, first it is hard to find.
Baggage. This phone has a 2 megapixel camera without autofocus. The device lets you take pictures of the following resolutions: 176x220, 320x240, 640x480, 1280x1024 and 1600x1200. You can select the image quality: low, medium, high. Make changes quickly during the recovery can not do this because the camera. And 'possible to set the white balance, exposure, select a frequency, as well as on or off the flash and night mode. Of course, you can immediately apply effects, more than once to activate the frame (4, 6 or 9), start the timer (5, 10 or 15). You can choose which images are stored, a memory card or storage device. You can also adjust the exposure (-4 to 4).
It is quite easy in the camera menu is represented as a horizontal line of icons, all data in each section are shown in a vertical menu down. The configuration parameters are displayed on the screen during the shooting as an icon in the upper left corner. It is strange that the machine can not disable the shutter sound, only offered a choice of three melodies.
The image quality is not perfect, a little 'zamylennymi received image noise in low light appear.
(+) Zoom, 1600x1200, JPEG
The disc can display thumbnail images - a list or a 3x3 matrix. Miniatures are very slow loading, are responsible for nine vignettes of 20 seconds. In addition, photos can be viewed one by one appearing almost full screen.
The editor. A simple image editor overlay effects, frames, icons, text, images and cultures display to your liking.
To record a video, you can select one of the formats - MPEG4 or H.263, this possibility is to select the best format for video to be sent to another phone. Videos can only be removed at the same resolution - 176x144. You can choose the video quality and set a limit on the target file size or time. The video can be recorded with or without sound. Judging the quality of the video is difficult in the movies of the screen of the phone are good, when transferred to a PC without stuttering is not noticeable, but the resolution is too low. When you see a video on your phone, you can display full screen.
The phone is equipped with a decoder Quisk Mark. This feature is currently popular in Japan and Korea, the European market, is not required. The importance of this function is that using the phone integrated camera and decoder Mark installed quickly, you can get all the information, photography, special bar code. The bar code can be combined with very different information, can be a phone number stored in the output, and a link to some content or site. This was done primarily to make life easier for users, and, of course, to attract more customers. Think about it, to get such an image, the user does not need to call any of the codes (it is likely that the recruitment would be a mistake), send messages, and then wait for a link to the picture.
The importance of this function is not at all, because in the absence of auto-focus device, I'm not talking about macro mode to take a bar code that is acceptable to the recognition, the phone is very difficult.
The performance. Increased productivity is evidenced by low test scores. Lack of support for a three-dimensional Java you can not make the appropriate tests.
The quality of the communication device located at the intermediate level, in areas with poor reception, it may lose the network. Speaker volume is not enough, during a conversation must closely phone to your ear, but the microphone sensitivity is in order. The phone has 64 polyphonic tones, a set of original songs rather than its very good, but if you do not like one of the preset songs, you can still set an MP3 song as a ringtone. With their dynamic ringer volume is quite high, but the vibrator is an average power for such a massive machine, it would have to be more powerful. The phone was free, it works without problems, the activation and deactivation occurs with a single click.
Fly LX800 device came out very well, yes, it has its weaknesses, but the benefits are no less, and more. The disadvantages of this model should be mentioned to slow to work with the memory, wait 20 seconds download nine vignettes - is for the management of raw files, the lack of autofocus on the camera. But the biggest drawback of the device keyboard as it is impossible to work under the sun.
The main unit again, of course, including the quality of the material body, a screen with QVGA resolution, the ability to recharge the device via USB, the presence of FM radio and MP3 player users happy. Well, the most basic model is 100% serves as a fashion phone, which has attracted the attention of none other than the same Nokia 8800, which has become familiar. During testing positive reactions have been reported in the device, and no one changed his mind after seeing the model under the name Fly.
At this point, the model has no competitors, devices like the Nokia 8800 or Vertu can not be considered competitors, as the different price categories and focus exclusively on other buyers. Perhaps competing models can act under wrong, but did not think anything will be able to convince a man who decided to take a fake. These people believe that the copy is no different from anyone from the original, and Fly LX800 can not compete with their pseudo-Vertu.
To date, the average price for the model, or about $ 450 U.S. (12,000 rubles), which in general is quite acceptable for such a device.
Another thing, because the phone manufacturers are in no hurry to use the Sapphire in the models is that the life cycle of the equipment will be reduced and the importance of set sapphire crystal, which can last several years, did not.
The name of the song listed under the operator logo in brackets. The player plays the music with headphones and speaker. Included with the phone in stereo, the quality of a good helmet, the helmet is different from what normally best phones come with Fly. Housing unit with headphones and a microphone and answer button is soft-touch plastic.
When using the Fast User Mark must choose a single image, photograph his phone "bar code", the unit automatically recognizes and provide information to the browser for the link to download the existing image. But if this is to take root in Europe - is unknown. Basically what is popular in Asia, has never been popular in Europe.
