Celkon Signature HD A119Q

Media Tek MTK 6589 chipsets are seen on almost every price range Android operating system Celkon Signature HD A119Qsmart cellphone available these days. Having features such as a quad-core processer and the PowerVR GPU, price range smart cellphone producers are applying this chipset on almost all their current leading models. Since most recent price range mobile phones sold in Indian are presenting the same components, the only significant variations we get to see are show size and solutions, RAM potential, storage space potential and build/aesthetic versions. We saw the same chipset in a few other devices we analyzed earlier and same is the situation with the Celkon Signature HD A119Q . So what does the A119Q have uncommon? We discover out.

Design and Build

The Celkon Signature HD A119Q system is wrapped in a completely shiny white-colored spend and is a dust magnetic. There is also a black edition, which we think is a bit more attractive. The product is designed very strongly with no creaky sides or any other such difficult places to get noticable. The top part functions the huge show with the three backlit touch control buttons – Returning, House and Selection – at the end. The top activities the ear piece, front part photographic camera and the light/proximity indicator window. The rear board activities the main photographic camera with an LED display living next to it. Towards the end is a presenter grill and the brand name produced. The sides and base of the system have a shiny huge nasty cut, giving the cellphone a bit top quality experience. The measure musician and the power/standby control buttons take their places on the right and top of the smart cellphone . Finally, the top also functions the headset port and the small USB port.

Slip out the nasty back board and you will discover the two GSM SIM cards spots and a hot-swappable small SD cards port. At the end part is a huge presenter beneath shiny metal capable. We did see a minimal but frustration defect on the production part. The energy button, which is presented on the top of the system, is placed on the outside on a small PCB with the wire operating into the structure. Since the PCB and the wire is easily seen in an out direction, it looks bad and could be vulnerable to damage, dust and moisture. Apart from this, we did not discover any problems with the develop. But we would also like to bring up that the system is a tad bulkier and is out at 177 grms. The cellphone measures 148 x 74.5 x 9.3 mm. The product appearance does look like the New samsung Universe sequence, except for the huge base level, which functions the control buttons and the shiny cut around the structure. Overall, the Celkon Signature HD A119Q does look excellent due to the nice style applied.


The Celkon Signature HD A119Q is designed using the Media Tek MTK 6589 presenting a quad-core ARMv7 processer operating at 1.2GHz and a PowerVR SGX544MP GPU. The program is provided with an excellent 1GB of RAM, but the inner storage space remains at 4GB, just as most price range devices. Out of this inner 4GB, 2.65GB is available for customer information while the relax is taken up by the os, programs and app information. You can increase the storage space up to 32GB using a small SD cards.

The show is a huge 5-incher wearing a quality of 720 x 1280 p with a ppi of 294. There are no details of the show presenting an IPS board or a regular TFT board, but the show does look near to an IPS kind due to the excellent watching perspectives. The rear present shooter is a 12.6MP photographic camera reinforced with an LED display. Unfortunately, despite having a quad-core processer and 1GB of RAM, the photographic camera records video clips at only 720p quality. We did try searching deep into the photographic camera configurations for finding out if this is the limit or the standard configurations are kept to 720p itself, but in useless. The photographic camera activities other functions such as GPS labeling, EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization), time slide up, rush (40 shots), face recognition, anti sparkle, color results, and a few other photo and movie results. The top part photographic camera is a 3.1MP for movie talk.

Connectivity options are Wi-Fi b/g/n, 3G, EDGE, Wireless blue tooth 4.0, Micro USB PC customer interface and A-GPS. The os set up is Google Android operating system Jelly Bean edition 4.2.1. The launcher is inventory with three built-in styles. These styles just have a minimal change in colors, symbols and such, and the setting is named as “Style” instead of “Themes”. The os has a few included programs pre-installed in the firmware. These include a few enjoyment programs, games, efficiency programs and a security app. To end up the entire functions area, the A119Q is powered by a 2100 mAh Li-ion battery, which should last you through the working day with basic to informal use. Bundled along with the system is a battery charger, in-ear headphones, a small USB information wire, a 100 % free display guard and a matte-finish all-white turn situation.

Performance and customer interface

The Android operating system Jelly Bean os set up on the A119Q seems constant. We did not see any lags, nerves, slowdowns or major bugs. Thanks to the 1GB of RAM, the os operates sleek on the components provided to it. We discovered a problem in a few places and would like to emphasize the same. First of all, the system has a noisy boot up music, which is distressing and there is no way to turn off or avoid it to lower amounts. Cheering the system could be the only help for it. Secondly, the Wi-Fi toggle in the toggle change place of the notice bar had an issue too. Usually, it should toggle the wireless network on/off when used once. In this situation, you need to tap and hold the toggle change for the place to stimulate. The other toggles worked without any problems. The second place of concern was the show. Towards the sides of the display, one can see the LED backlight lighting the sides a little too shiny. A shiny line is seen and is distressing when surfing around or watching a movie. Additionally, the property, menu and back changes are backlit with very white-colored LEDs and they don’t convert off on their own. This lighting of the changes could also be frustrating after a while. There are no configurations to convert them down or change them off after a few seconds.

To test the primary strength of the chipset, we did run our regular benchmarking assessments on it. Though the chipset is just like most price range mobile phones in the same classification, the performance does differ due to the different functions such as the program RAM, show size and kind, and modifications and bloat ware set up in the os. As per our assessments, AnTuTu obtained 13186, Quadrant obtained 3950 and Linpack provided us a structure rate of 44.5 fps. Lin pack provided ratings of 36.51 MFLOPS and 126.81 MFLOPS in the single-thread and multi-thread assessments . Performing on the ratings, we compared the A119Q to the relax of the group and discovered the performance much near to the Gionee E3, Liven Mi500, Xolo Q700 and the Micromax Fabric HD, which fall in the same classification (there may be more devices too). This performance can differ now and then as the devices are all based on the amount of 100 % free RAM, programs set up, operating programs and the normal temperature. Our assessments are performed after a manufacturer totally reset with inventory firmware and pre-installed programs.
