Mlais MX Base Specs

In the same way as other $130 Chinese cell phones, the Mlais MX Base is fueled by a quad-center MediaTek MT6735 1.3GHz 64-bit processor. Matched with this is a Mali-T720 MP2 GPU and 2GB of RAM, and in addition 16GB of inbuilt storage. The back of the smartphone is completely removable and highlights two SIM card slots, a microSD card slot and a removable 4,300mAh battery. This is an immense battery, particularly for this range of devices, and will give abundant battery life. Adhering to the back of the gadget we’re taking a gander at a 8-megapixel camera with f/2.0 lens and a solitary LED flash. On the front sits a 5-inch 720p LCD screen and obviously the entire experience is driven by Android 5.1 Lollipop with a light skin. Measurements of the telephone run really thin particularly considering the extent of the battery. You’ll see that the Mlais MX Base is 71.5mm wide, 145.8mm tall and 9.9mm thin and weighs 168g.

Inside the Box

Within the container is really desolate, which is likely not out of the ordinary from a $130 device by and large in any case. You’ll discover only the device itself, microUSB cable and a charger included and a manual. Our smartphone had a screen protector pre-introduced on the phone itself, and we were even dispatched a safety glass screen cover and a flip-style case. These feasible won’t accompany each request yet you may be sufficiently lucky to score these additional items with your gadget as well.


A very much balanced display is hard to discover at this value range, however the Mlasi MX Base really has a really not too bad 720p display to experience. Shading equalization implies marginally cool, yet white adjust still looks better than average, and whites show up totally normally white paying little respect to the slight shading tone here. Shading multiplication is fantastic and not over or under soaked by any stretch of the imagination, everything looks very common. Display resolution obviously isn’t stellar yet it’s not awful either, at around 300 pixels-per-inch it’s not exactly Retina level (around 330PPI for reference) but rather it’s not very a long way from that either. There’s some noteworthy light drain originating from the highest point of the screen that makes the status bar look more like a slope than a level shading at most edges, however it’s not all that terrible to be diverting more often than not.

Performance and Memory

The MediaTek MT6735 is an entry-level quad-core SoC and often performs that way on many gadgets. Mlais seems to have done some optimizing here though because it definitely feels snappier and benchmarks better than some other devices running that SoC (system-on-a-chip).  To make things a little more astounding the phone even performs better than the Doogee Valencia 2 Y100 Pro that we just reviewed, which uses the exact same chipset yet performs quite a bit worse on paper and in general use.


These types of less expensive smartphones tend to have pretty good battery life, especially in 2015, and that’s in large part due to their lower resolution screens and lower power processors.  The Mlais MX Base has both of those things, but it also has an absolutely massive battery as well, one that’s double the size of many phones under 5-inches on the market.  As a result expect some pretty insane screen on time with this and lots of streaming and browsing before even having to think of charging the phone.  In my testing I regularly got over 6 hours of screen on time, which is consistent with the battery size here given that I get 3-4 hours screen on time with most phones on the market.

These sorts of less costly cell phones have a tendency to have really great battery life, particularly in 2015, and that is in expansive part because of their lower resolution screens and lower force processors. The Mlais MX Base has both of those things, however it has a completely monstrous battery too, one that is twofold the extent of numerous phones under 5-inches available. Accordingly expect some really crazy screen on time with this and bunches of gushing and searching before thinking of charging the phone.
