The differences between both devices are quite subtle and make the M1 partly a better device and at the same time it is not. How do you eat this? Well, because the gentlemen of Crosscall have improved some aspects that, in our opinion, seemed somewhat lazy.
But others have also neglected getting worse rating than the original TREKKER device.
First let’s see the improvements that the French manufacturer has included. We have a greater storage capacity so that when we are in the middle of nowhere we do not run out of space. A very important point in favor.
Not only has the internal capacity doubled (16 GB) but it quadruples the expansion by microSD up to 128 GB. It also comes out gaining RAM and operating system. The first one doubles again getting 2 GB and the Google OS goes to the next version; the Marshmallow 6.0.1.
And until now the best have arrived. The rest of the device has stayed the same or lowered noticeably. Both the 4.5 “screen and the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 technology is maintained but the resolution is lowered to 854 x 480 pixels.
We also lose part of the screen density, but the 4G connectivity, the 3,000 mAh battery, remains the same, Bluetooth and the dimensions.
The biggest loss is found in the cameras and the processor. We went from having 13 MP of resolution, in the main chamber, to only 8 MP. The front falls to 2 MP that offers a fairly regular quality.
The other stick is to have the same processor number, four, but with a processor at least powerful. In this case, you have installed the Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 so you expect it to unfold with total smoothness when you put it into it.
Luckily, it also maintains NFC connectivity, IP67 water and dust isolation and turns out to be a bit, just a little, lighter. On the contrary, the price has risen almost 30%, so we did not understand the manufacturer’s intention.
Still, you can download the user manual of both this and the other Crosscall smartphones to see which convinces you more.
