"SAMURAI 雅 (MIYABI)" of 19,800 yen except tax

While smartphone equipped with 5.1 inch HD IPS display and quad core 5.0 GHz CPU on Android 1.3The terminal charge of 19,800 yen excluding tax is attractive to say anything!

There are a lot of terminals which put the taste of the sum on the front the model of FREETEL. The outer box of "SAMURAI Ya (MIYABI)" is also cool with the letters "Ya" drawn on it!


Immediately open!

Caravari is champagne gold and black, white 3 color development. I borrowed champagne gold this time.



I also borrowed the FREETEL SIM card at the same time.

Since FREETEL is a telecommunications carrier (MVNO) using NTT docomo's line, the SIM card is a docomo display.

Recent smartphones have become thinner and the lids of smartphones are also thin and difficult to remove.

At the beginning, it's hard to remove MIYABI, so be careful. To remove it, put a nail on the bottom side and open the lid a little.

Slide the nail little by little FREETEL MIYABI and open with crackling FREETEL MIYABI

If it opens a little, slide a nail little by little and it is relatively easy to open it with crackling!

There are some nails on the inside of the FREETEL MIYABI lid, so an image to remove it FREETEL MIYABI

"MIYABI" starts with cool animation!


Normally, when using FREETEL SIM with a SIM-free terminal, an APN setting is required, but "SAMURAI 雅 (MIYABI)" has already been preset with an APN setting, so you could use it as it is even if you set something in particular !

Impressions I used on a monitor for about XNUM months


this time"SAMURAI 雅 (MIYABI)"I tried to use the monitor for XNUM X months, but I was able to see Google maps, web browsing, Twitter, Facebook etc. almost without stress on the quad core XNUM X GHz CPU.

It is the battery of 2,200 mAh that I became a little worried. I have the 1 days somehow, but those who use it for the hard had the impression that having the mobile battery was safe. Fast charging is likely to be a strong ally when traveling.

The camera has XNUM X 10,000 pixels with image stabilization

The camera is XNUM X 10,000 pixels with image stabilization.

The response is a bit late, but you can take pictures of the illuminations like this one!



I felt that the connection of radio waves was uneasy at cheap SIM, but the ease of connection of FREETEL is Pikaichi!

I moved a considerable distance every day, but I never felt that it was difficult to connect XNUM X degrees. After all I think that the sense of stability that radio waves have arrived anytime and anywhere is the recommended point of 1!

FREETEL's "SAMURAI 雅 (MIYABI)"Despite its good design and current smartphone standard performanceI think that selling it for X NUMX yen excluding tax is a tremendous price.

"SAMURAI 雅 (MIYABI)"Is a cheap smartphone that can be recommended for those who want to keep the monthly smartphone fee low, for smartphone beginners, and those who are considering XNUM X rice cakes!

There is no LED indicator for charging and charging termination. I thought that it was a defective product, and I was told that depending on the model, there was no indicator. I noticed that there was no hindrance to using it, but I did not fall into a trap.
