Prestigio MultiPhone 3540 Duo - User Reviews

  • Break this phone and buy a new one. That is what you and COULD of have done.

  • Sorry I have 3502 but its not listed on review screen. Nice looking phone but dont buy it. Absolutely crap. Battery goes almost straight away. Wasted 90 pounds off shopping channel so its put me off that aswell. They should test everthing they sell. My bit moan anyway DONT buy it

  • im having major problems with this phone someone downloading data tried resetting but the problem reappears when turn on phone get adverts which although i turn off reappear think its viruses would never trust this make

  • There are some major problems with this phone: - the 4 GB internal memory is 1,91 GB in real life, which is also partitioned, so the available memory to install any programs is only 500 MB !!! - the wifi and the GPS is extremly weak to signals - without wifi you are simply unable to watch eg. youtube videos, because the data transfer is so slow - the display can be seen well only from one angle... Avoid this phone.

  • Keyboard

  • Can this phone be backed up in the clouds

  • Guys, I have this phone for about 18 months already and EVERYTHING works perfect! I didn't have any file transfer problem at all, neither a mail opening issue as well. 100% satisfied! But, you should keep in mind that the RAM is only 512 kB and that the 4 GB of internal storage should be wisely managed - all the INSTALLED apk's that allow so, should be moved to an external SD. At the end, you should calculate with what is going to be installed on in one moment - there is not too much space available for too many apps to stay installed on it. Still, this is just a budget phone. Recommendation: disable all the native apps that you don't need/use. Here are some of my disabled apps (no problem for the phone): Prestigio Keys; PrestigioWizard; Installer Prestigio; eReader Prestigio; Digital Clock; Calendar; Calculator; Google text-to-speech Engine; Google+; Talk; TalkBack; YouTube. Please note that some of these apps are replaced with another ones, appropriate for the purpose. My configuration (apks ALWAYS installed): Advanced Task Manager; AntTek Explorer v3.1.4; Opera Mini; Adobe Reader; Business Calendar Pro; Smart Keyboard Pro; Flashlight+; RealCalc; Navitel Navigator...

I have very few apps on the phone and im installing and storing everything on the sd card. It has an internal memory card which i didnt figure how to use, an internal storage, which i guess is getting full?! please help, my seytings are probably the problem

  • the phone is great I have used it to Skype and serve the internet and m not disappointed about the camera it is good and it offers photo editing which is a plus and on the battery life is great it can stay hours before recharging but when using internet you can charge as you serve or download music or video storage space its ok

  • Go to phonebook (contacts), open the desired contact which you want to block (by pressing on name of the contact), after that press on left button below display to get list of options, choice from the list: block incoming calls. This works on my Prestigio 4055, I hope is the same for this phone.

  • Thanks, Have used the phone too. Its good compared to cost and

  • How fast do games run on it?

  • Hi could anyone tell me if i can block a number coming into my prestigio phone? Ive checked all the settingd and cant seem to find how to do it? Thanks a lot

  • On low use the battery discharges 5% per day, with dual sim in use ... The hardware of the phone is excellent, however, pay big attention, the screen is IPS, not Amoled and only 260k color, not 16 million, and it has a low viewing angle ... Also the camera is poor quality, on 3.2 mpixel you get ugly crisp images, but you can set it to 2 mpixels, then you get the typically average low quality. So pros: - hardware - long battery life (with the "limit CPU performance to conserve battery life" option turned on) - elegant design - very good signal quality Contras: - screen (IPS - view angle and low color) - extremely low camera quality - android is not stock. I had to replace the Call/Contact app to something decent (Go Contacts Ex), you could not make much difference between incoming/outgoing/missed calls due to the poor color/arrow image design. With better camera/screen quality, this phone would be #1.

  • As to Skype, my son says it works OK, whatever it means :) We don't have comparison, but the video looks sharp enough, no smudges. As to the GPS, I have compared it side-by-side with my S5570 Mini twice: with clear open sky, and with heavy clouds. Both times Mini was a bit better in cold fix: 43s vs 59 (clear), and 97s vs 177s (clouds). Don't know if that slight difference is model or individual relativ. Nevertheless, in critical applications I don't use the built-in GPS module, but a bluetooth module (Qstarz BT-Q818). Much better sensitivity and battery life than any built-in module. My Mini using its own GPS lasts for some 4-5hours on one charge, with (much more sensitive and precise) bluetooth GPS module some 14-15hours. Oh, and recently I discovered another not-so-common "energy-saving" feature: the Prestigio has the option to switch on and off at set time (like in most PC BIOSes). I was really annoyed when I first discovered I had to keep my Android on (and drain the battery) all night long just to use its alarm clock function. Certainly you can switch to airplane mode to save battery, but now possible in Prestigio switching off looks better to me.

  • Very good review. Thank you for all the useful information. Can you tell us a bit about the GPS/Navigation function and how it works for you? I have an Alcatel S'POP which pretty much fits within the spec range of this phone yet the 2000 mAh battery life is definitely a plus according to your review. Also if you use Skype, Tango or similars how is the video chat/voice chat quality?

  • I am delighted with this phone. It's really cheap for its specs (bought it for my son for 340PLN), so most people will rather underestimate it. But the quality of built is excellent. It has much better reception than our other Android phones (S5570 Mini and I5700 Spica), both regarding GSM and WiFi. It's very fast (fast booting, scrolling, video). The Android onboard is on par with the hardware, so everything runs smooth. To get most of the Spica and Mini I had to install better ROM (cyanogenmod) than the stock Samsung, with Prestigio I don't feel like changing anything. Perhaps I shall just root the phone, to get rid of the Google bloatware. Drawbacks: -being not prestigious nor popular, the phone is not supported by the Net community as other brands. It's difficult to find alternative ROM (but as I said, for the time being everything is so perfect I don't need any change), -can't find silicon casing for it, nor spare battery (from the time of infamous Nokia 6220C, I usually carry a spare battery), -in fact, with Prestigio you don't need a spare battery. With heavy wifi usage and playing, one charging gives you 1-2 days. Using it as a phone solely, you will easily get a week on single charging. As the chipset of the phone is not very energy-efficient (65nm rather than 40nm), that excellent result is rather due to enormous battery capacity (2Ah). And for me, the location of the sd-card slot together with slots for sims in the battery compartment is a bit inconvenient (you have to switch off the phone to remove the sd-card). Still, having 4GB of built-in non-volatile memory, you don't need external sd-card that much. All-in-all, after two weeks usage I highly recommend it. Definitely better bang for the buck than other brands. But even putting its value for money aside, it is just a very good smartphone.
