a Budget smartphone usually has several specific qualities: it is cheap (8 000 rubles), working with the brakes on is not very fast hardware, has a mediocre camera and a thick plastic case. The hero of this review – a new brand model Fly – Fly Cirrus 4. Let's see which of these unflattering qualities inherent in this model and how they may differ.

The Model comes in a classic white package. Anything extra: the logo of the brand Fly, model name, blue stripe, representing Cirrus clouds "Cirrus".
The package includes: black headphones, warranty card, manual, charger, meter cable micro USB "key" for access to the slot microSIM/microSD.
The Glass case – a definite plus over other employees.
On the Fly Cirrus 4 is far from our usual budget smartphones in the plastic housing. The model is framed by two glass panels: front panel - curved edges, the so-called 2.5 D glass, rear – black glass surface with a simple logo Fly. The smartphone is pleasant to hold in the hand, but the surface is easily soiled. All the dust particles and particles on the glass visible under a microscope. Fly Cirrus 4 in white and black casing.
At the end of the body on the right side there are the "rocker" volume up and power button. Convenient to use, buttons easy to reach. On the other hand end are the slots for SIM card and microSD. The bottom of the housing the holes for speaker and microphone. Sound is also put plus music and calls heard well. Many manufacturers here sin and a speaker on the surface of the back cover, which calls can be almost unheard of, especially when the smartphone is on the table.
Resolution 5” display, 720x1280 pixels. No air gap with IPS matrix, made on technology on-cell. The display gives a good picture with a good level of colour, brightness and contrast, and supports up to 5 touches. Again, the entire front surface of the smartphone is a a smoothed at the edges of the 2.5 D glass. Looks impressive. For the display we put another plus.
The Autonomy is clearly not a horse Fly Cirrus 4. Li-ion battery has a capacity of 1950 mAh. Not a lot, but not so very little. A standard figure for most state employees. However, Fly Cirrus 4 missing 3P enabled in active use just for working day, and so, without recharging from time to time is not enough. Charged it pretty fast: up to 50% in 40 minutes, to 100% in around one and a half to two hours.
Main camera Resolution 8 MP. It is equipped with autofocus, flash and supports HDR mode. Nothing extraordinary camera not issue. Good the pictures come out in good daylight, but framed them it is unlikely that someone will bet. Color reproduction was good, but detail is poor. Shots indoors or dusk to do you don't want too much noise. You can record videos in FullHD format with a resolution of 1920x1088.
Front camera — 2 MP. Has a flash. True fixed-focus does not always guesses with the object of photographing, therefore, to obtain a clear selfie will have to try.
Fly the Cirrus 4 is running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, relatively fresh OS with a set of useful functions. The interface is non-standard, equipped with a graphical shell Yandex. For shell plus. The interface works smoothly, though some slowdowns when moving between Windows are present.
The Smartphone is powered by Quad-core MediaTek MT6580A with a frequency of 1.3 GHz. Graphics processor Mali-400 MP2. Fly Cirrus 4 will not fly in the 3D games, but most games he can afford, but about the improved graphics forget. RAM 1 GB. It is enough for most everyday tasks, but to overload a smartphone is not necessary – will not pull.
Plus it is necessary to put and for communication. The Cirrus 4 catches signal very well. To the Wi-Fi connected immediately, and the module support 3G will comfortably flipping news or to view videos.
Summary and conclusions
Fly the Cirrus 4 is sold on the official website for 5 393 rubles. For this money we get a decent smartphone in a very beautiful and far of non-glass body, with a modern shell Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Yandex Launcher, good cell connection and a good display with good color rendering.
The disadvantage is the lack of 4G is not very fast processor and a standard battery charge is enough for one day, and a weak camera. Whether the pros outweigh the cons – we think Yes, especially if you need a worker, not a gaming smartphone.
