Underdog Yezz A5QP is an octa-core smartphone with big ambitions

Phones
Hello. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. We're taking a look at 3 new smartphones from Yezz, a Miami-based company that's looking to take on Samsung and other major organizations. All right. Let's start with this is the Yezz A5QP. Now the first thing I notice picking up this phone is that it's extremely light. If you spin it on its side it measures just 6.9 millimeters thick and it just feels very, very portable. I like it. If you have a look on the back there's a 13-megapixel camera while on the front you get a 5-megapixel camera. Despite being superlight, this thing should be very powerful. It's got a 1.7 gigahertz octa-core processor on the inside. I can't wait to check out some benchmark tests and see just how powerful this thing really is. This 5-inch display has a 720 x 1280 pixel resolution and another thing that's kind of neat about this phone is it's got metal plating on the inside which Yezz says will make it quite tough and hard to damage. It's running Android version 4.2. Now that's not the latest version, but I'm told they're getting an upgrade to 4.4 KitKat might be possible by the time this thing goes on sale. Yezz also has its own app store on this with 50,000 free apps. What's cool about that app store is that you don't have to register so no putting in your email address. You can just start downloading apps as soon as you get the phone. I'm told that this thing will cost less than 320 euros. It's coming out in Europe and the UK in April before a US and Latin America release in May. Next up is this is the A5VP. Now unfortunately this thing isn't a real phone yet. It's just a dummy model at the moment, but I'm assured that eventually this thing will have LTE, it'll have a 1.2 gigahertz quad-core processor, and it will be coming out in May in Europe, Latin America, and the US. Last but not least is the AZ4.5. Now this phone is interesting because it's aimed at seniors so it has a couple of really interesting features. For example if you have a look down here these touch buttons are really, really big so they're easy to see. All the icons are very simple. The interface is very basic. If you flip it around there's an SOS button here in case of emergencies. There's a 5-megapixel camera too and on the side there is a flashlight control and a switch for an FM radio. So some inventive features and it's always nice to see some devices from a company that's an underdog. Well, what do you think? Let me know.
