To better understand the feelings that surrounding us right now by writing this review of Innos D6000, I suggest we go a deep inside our mind and soul. Tuned? Good. Now answer sincerely, did you ever enjoyed the feeling of nice, sweet revenge? If your answer is yes, continue reading, as today we have a perfect weapon to hit back our old enemy, whose name is Mr Empty Battery. The struggle is real among many smartphone owners, and usually majority of tips to saving up the precious battery live is ended up with generic suggestions of turning off Wi-Fi, GPS and lower the brightness. But tell me why you’ve spent money on modern smartphone of you are going to cut or limit these perks. Innos D6000 is relatively new player in smartphone market, specializing in niche segments like durable and long lasting phones. And now they are relaunching their successful project with updated model of Innos D6000 for European market. Seeing that sales are booming in Chinese market, these guys went further, opened European office, and currently offering direct sales through their Russian store. Name and model number stay same, however, a terrific job have done in other important aspects:
- Better international localization
- European version will receive regular system updates & Android 6.0 Marshmallow soon
- Dual battery optimisation
- Better benchmark scores thanks to better system stability
From the first look, as you may see, we have nothing special here. Ordinary black brick with screen. Good news is that here all the similarities with other phones come to its logical end. So now let’s look closer at the specs and see what internal did manufacturers packed in this mobile energy powerhouse.
Innos D6000 Specifications
OS: Android 5.1 with planned update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow
Display: 5.2”, FULL HD 1920 x 1080, IPS.
Well here the producers found a perfect balanced display size, considering the thickness it was a smart move not to bring monster 5.5” here. Otherwise, the usability would be compromised. And also they refused to go down to old school 5 inches. Perfectly balanced display size for this phone. Moreover, not only you will enjoy all your images and videos on FULL HD resolution, Innos D6000 features IPS matrix display, which means:
- Better viewing angles
- Deep blacks
- Better image under direct sunlight
- Colours aren’t looking too artificial compared to AMOLED displays
You will also get the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 as a silent protector of your screen. Third version of Gorilla Glass improves the durability, yet is more light and have anti fingerprint layer.
Last but not least, the screen itself is made in Japan by JDI. Very serious joint venture founded by Sony, Hitachi & Toshiba.
CPU: Qualcomm SnapDragon 615 / MSM8939
This 8 core CPU is designed with future proofing in mind. These chips are not the most powerful on the market, however be sure they won’t let you down. Your favourite Asphalt 8 goes smoothly on medium settings. And the GPS lock is fast and accurate. The series also known for being more battery friendly than others. Everyday tasks and sometimes even more are easily handled and optimised.
RAM: 3GB. The race for RAM officially started this year. 2, 3 or sometimes even 4GB are now a reality and not a PC monopoly / privilege anymore. To be honest, we didn’t expect 3 gigs of RAM in the smartphone for $250, as other manufacturers reserve that amount for high-end flagship models. This will be more than enough for any task, game or benchmark you toss at it. Sometimes even overkill considering the average performing CPU, but at we’ve mentioned, Innos D6000 was designed by keeping future proofing as long as possible. Kudos to manufacturers here.
ROM: 32 GB. Well seems both RAM and ROM are seriously pre-packed here. Innos team did not go the greedy path here as well. Even if there is a micro SD card slot, we believe 32 gigs are still pretty much enough for average user to keep all files and data. However, maximum amount of supported micro SD cards capacity is limited to 32GB as well. Sorry 256GB data junkies, not this time.
Camera: 16 megapixel main camera, supplied by U.S. based OmniVision. Geared with autofocus and LED flash, this camera is capable of delivering good quality images, especially in sun. Front 5 megapixel is more than enough for comfortable Skype conversations or fancy selfies at the restaurant.
Battery / Batteries: The king of this show. For all of not wanting to use our phones from charge to charge, or look up at the charge percentage every second, smart guys at Innos laboratories developed pretty genius solution. Look at the image below:
The orange squares are batteries. Yes, 2 of them actually. First battery is standalone, non-replaceable battery with 2480 mAh power. Already a good amount of juice to keep you busy one full day. But wait, there is more. The second, removable battery has 3520-mAh power, which totals to whopping 6000-mAh power. Plus you additionally buy extra batteries and make “hot-swap” without switching off the phone.
Innos D6000 Conclusion
This is by any means an exceptional device with generously packed performance hardware with the power-focused consumer in mind. If you are tired of carrying power banks in your pockets, and require stable, smooth and fast operation, this is definitely a choice to consider. Even the bright coloured and vivid packaging is telling you to grab it.
