M-Horse S60 is a Phablet lauched by the Chinese company from the middle-range market. The device combines good specifications with an interesting price.

Package

The package contents several items besides the smartphone. The product comes in a 19 x 17 x 3 cm package that weights 0.5 kg. Inside, you can find the battery, the power adapter, an USB cable (which can be used either to charge the phone or to exchange data with a PC), the earphones and a leather case.

Design

M-Horse S60

The S60 is built with a magnalium alloy coated frame, which gives it a luxurious aspect. It is available in two different colors, black and white. This phablet has a size of 144 x 73 x 7 mm (5.7 x 2.9 x 0.3 inches) and it’s quite lightweight, as it weighs just 110g.

Around the edges, there are the different ports. On the top, there is located the headphone jack and the micro USB port (used for data transfer as well as for charging). The rest of the controls are on the left (volume and power), while the back includes the camera and the flash light.

M-Horse S60-3

The M-Horse S60 has a 5-inch Capacitive (5-Points) screen with QHD resolution (960×540 pixels). Below the screen there are the capacitive buttons, while above the display we can find the earpiece and the front camera.

Performance

The S60 has a quad-core Cortex A7 MTK6582 processor, running at 1.3 GHz. It is coupled with an ARM Mali-400 MP GPU. Despite the fact that it is not an extremely powerful processor, the medium screen resolution doesn’t require much power to run, so the GPU is able to provide a good performance for a conventional use of the device.

Cameras

The M-Horse S60 included two cameras, a front and a back one. The sensor is mounted on the back camera, which is able to capture images with a resolution of 5 MP. In addition, it also includes a flash light and an autofocus. The front one has a sensor of 2 MP, enough to provide the possibility to record a basic selfie. The device also can record videos.

Network and connectivity
