Prestigio MultiPhone 5044 Duo - User Reviews

  • It supports sandisk microsSD extreme Pro 32GB U3 A1 In FAT format, not exFAT. I root prestigio and with Link2SD free up the Ram. Now it works to me.

  • hi, I'am from lebanon plz how can i get a PAP5044 DUO

  • The simple bad thing about this phone is the pitiful 4GB internal memory. Prestigio suggest that one runs as many applications on the SD memory card that one can, but this is just not possible. If the internal memory was 16GB, it would be a much better phone.

  • I am looking for headhpones for my prestigio 5370 duo phone. How can I get one

  • for screenshot press volume down button + start button + home button, all together in the same time until you hear a camera shot sound and a notification that the screenshot was taken

  • I am using the mobile for more then two years. The internal memory is not capable to cope with more then 3-4 applications. The GPS is hopeless. Otherwise quite good phone. From today's perspective it is an old fashioned phone. Have to replace it with new one....

  • Hi Iàve got sum issue regarding my sim card , the mobile working with all sims excepted Poste Mobile , do you have any idea why the sim wont work? Thanks

  • Why does my number show private no, and note my name? Can some one please help me. When I call friends, they don't answer, cause it says private no.

  • Nope! I have asked couple of times the Guys form the tech support and they said its not possible... That's why i broke that phone one day while I was so angry to having the chance to install a small update..... My opinion is sell it and get the G7 Huawei ... its the same price and you get 16 Gigs ....

  • did not worked for me so I asked Prestigio CS, they answered "try to look for "nokia standard" earphones.

  • Anyone having problem finding replacement earphones/headset for PAP 5044. "Nokia standard" 3.5mm works perfectly. no luck with: htc, samsung, huawei, iphone earphones.

  • It is possible to increase the phone's internal memory (0,98GB) by reducing the second (1,74GB)?

  • press the lock and volume doun button together and hold a second

  • I use iPhone/Apple earphones. They fit and work perfectly.

  • u press volme button - , and power button at the same time

  • had the same problem. just format your phone storidge

  • I have this model! About gps accuracy: YOu have to stop and wait to lock gps signal, if you driving and trying to find gps signal that mission is impossible... But this pfone is for sure better phone then my old Samsung S3 :D

  • I have problem with the storage, all the data on the sd card was deleted then i formated the sd card and after some time again same problem message apears damaged sd card, i put a new sd card and after some time again the same problem message apears it says damaged sd card and i lost all data,now i cant use the phone storage it says phone storage safetly removed, need some fix on the phone.

  • Using GPS with TorquePro. Takes less than a minute driving to lock onto a satelite. There are some settings that aid the speed and accuracy of the GPS. Google it if you are having problems

  • GPS does not lock correctly no matter what i did, very dissapointing phone. lying at home, not planning of using

  • CleanMaster works fine, why not, same as everything else on this phone...

  • Why?About clean master?

  • Why?

  • The phone is fast ,very good and the camera also.Just dont install clean master.

  • Can't use 3G network i sent the phone to be serviced after it came back i couldn't use 3G network tried everything.... i go into the web browser and it says "not found" in the left top corner Can anyone Help?

  • For me the black camera issue was resolved by the latest (april 2014) update

  • i am alsoo facing this problem if u have some solution thenn please thell me alsoo my id [email protected] please i will be gr9full to u

  • The phone is top.. About the camera bug.. use warranty.. they changed my mother board.. now its runing perfectly

  • I have a question about the black camera bug.. how can i fix it? Sometimes it works perfectly, but then all of a sudden it's just black and i cant do anything, even when i shut it down..

  • I have a question about the black camera bug.. how can i fix it? Sometimes it works perfectly, but then all of a sudden it's just black and i cant do anything, even when i shut it down..

  • i have this phone for few months,everything works great,no gps lock problem,no camera problem,no any problem at all

  • Yes, the GPS work perfectly. Did you update the phone with the latest update - 1.0.42. Actually, today was released 1.0.45, which fix "black camera" bug. If you want to have fast and accurate GPS lock, then go to Settings -> Location access -> (put ticks in the squares) -> GPS satellites -> and here put tick also in the square of A-GPS. I hope you have unlimited data plan. This option help a lot for GPS lock. In my case, in less than 10 seconds my phone connect to almost 8 satellites.

  • Did your gps work from the start? mine struggles to get lock on satelites and show me 2 kms away from where i am

  • Exactly. buying the 5044 and comparing it to an iphone or S4 is mad. In 5 months of ownership I had no problems and I'm actually really pleased with the way it handles abuse. It is cheap but you wouldn't know!

  • Anyone interested to buy PRESTIGIO should go and check support page of their website. My suggestion dont waste your money. REMEMBER YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.

  • My friend got a discount on the phone and got it for me for 180 euros dude so yeah

  • well he got the flip cover, tell your botfriend to buy a sillicon foil to cover his screen because, the screen is easy to scratch even though if its not on the stock market in spain its worthy buying it from a foil maker, its worthy, acssesories are not so available i think but if i helped you glad i could help

  • You empty it tottaly and then, you charge it, after fully charged you wait an hour do so until you notice changes and also you should do the samo without the hour-after-100% method to keep the battery healthy and to extend its life to some point i tell this from own expirience

  • This phone is pretty good, i have no problems with it its a month old tho so i expect no problems in the future, also yall people download the junk cleaning software on google play, its called clean master it will free your RAM, clean junk files and clean useless cache, form the battery by emptying it till it dies the charging it with and wait an hour after it fully charged, it worked on my pretigio itll work on yours too, also the screen its worthy buying sillicon foil for the screen even though its not in the market in your country the screen is normal glass so it wouldnt scratch if you have a flip cover for the screeen which you get with the phone you solved the situation

  • Hi guys please need help When someone is calling me I can't hear them but they can hear me please how can I repair ??? ASAP please

  • I have a prestigio 5044 phone and I have a problem with the installation and use Viber, the WhatsApp. I keep my only shot out a message that says "Unfortunately, Viber app-WhatsApp has stopped working". Does anyone have a similar problem and if anyone knows what to do to make everything work ok :/

  • no otg :(

  • how fast are HSDPA / HSUPA ?? anyone?? please??

  • no.just black

  • Is it available in white?

  • There is Note 3 with 2 sims now. ;)

  • I have a small problem with the battery. Quickly we leave, it would not take all day. Is there in ingeenering mode setup option and extension of battery life?

  • The solution works. Thanks a lot !!!

  • Hello! I'm from Spain and I recently bought this celular to my boyfriend. It's looks really good!! I want to tell you if you know links or webs to buy accesories for this celular prestigio 5044. Thank you very, very much! And sorry for my english. Kisses from Spain

  • support for usb otg?

  • This code works properly! I use it and the mic sound start very good!

  • for those who have problem with echo, enter engineering mode by typing this code: *#*#3646633#*#* select Normal Mode (Normal) - Mic (microphone volume)-Level 0 - 180 Set Level 1 - 180 Set Level 2 - 180 Set Level 3 - 180 Set Level 4 - 180 Set Level 5 - 180 Set Level 6 - 180

  • you can install most apps on the sd card. Obviously some can not be moved.

  • what about the 4GB internal memory? I have Samsung note2 with 16GB and still feel thst is not enough. On samsung you cannot install apps on SD card. Is it the same with 5044? I am very happy with note2 but I need a Dual SIM phone, and don't want to regret my decision. IT is relatively cheap, but still, 300 euros are not peanuts.

  • Sound quality is as good as any. Haven't had any problems on my end, and I also haven;t received any complaints about it.

  • yes. Play store is installed and working

  • do these have google play?

  • How is the call quality on this phone? Thx.

  • Great phone, for this money, you cannot find better, and 24 mounts of garantee. If you have problems with camera, go too service, but i always telling, if you whant picture buy dslr camera. Phone is little big, but is not matter, because he work great, fast, internet is fast, good respons. GREAT

  • Could you explain me how to take sharp pictures? I press center of screen to focus and then photo button, but picture is not sharp enough. In my opinion camera is to fast and it doesn't focus very well.It should focus object and then take the pic but this camera takes pics before focusing. Maybe I am making mistake. Advise me if you know solution.

  • Had it for almost a month and I am very pleased with it. It works perfectly and its got pretty snappy performance. Its battery lasts me up to two days and never less than a whole day with 40% battery left. As for the camera I find it decent. There are better ones I'm sure but it does the job just fine for me. Only downside is lack of accessories. No fancy cases are available. A simple silicone case is available but has to be sourced from China...

  • Wierd, my 5044Duo shoots very sharp pictures...

  • Phone is quite good, except camera. Camera Quality is very bad. You can't take sharp picture. Camera doesn't focus well. I thought change my SGS3 with this phone but S3 is much better when we talk about camera. I bought it yesterday but I will sell it tomorrow and keep my S3.

  • The GPS is perfect. I use Google Maps and Navigon every day and it works for sure. But for fast lock you have to use mobile internet and A-GPS to be ON. I do not have any problem with the original headset. It works also very good.

  • This phone is with me from day 1 as i was the lucky user who received this new flagship model when it was going to market and the only phone i own here in Pakistan.this phone has ultimate features . The Design is really good so 10/10 . Phone has IPS display which is very good the brighter and clear . 1.2 Quadcore processor enables you to watch and play the best games which it has . 8MP camera enables you to capture the best pics and videos . Android 4.2.1 the latest os it has . 2000Mah i can easily spend my whole day by watching videos and playing games . Hopefully latest Android OS 4.4 kitkat will release soon for this phone....:)

  • Well it really has no problem i am using this phone from day first and i was the lucky user who get this new flagship model and i must say, this phone has extraordinary responsive touch screen and IPS display has made it more beautiful and brighter. it has 1.2 quadcore processor. the issue it only has the low internal memory which is 4 gb but you can add mmc of your choice which i think is not a big issue atall .Regards.

  • I've had this phone since August and there are only two problems I've found so far. Depending on what you year your phone for they can be a big issue or minor annoyance. The first is I struggle to find earphones with a mic that are useable with this phone, I get a bad echo unless the answer button is held down. The second is that the GPS for sat nav doesn't work, it can just about find my location but can't track my progress. I've tried some fixes that apparently worked for others but they did not work for me. Other than that it's fast and smooth. Not sure I'll keep it though as I use my phone for both music and maps

  • Few days left before buying the phone and making my own review of it, any comment more would be great, not just for me, but for everyone else thinking of buying the prestigio.

  • i'm getting my device next week.this handset is very cheap in S.A its a very sexy looking phone my only issue is 4gb is not enough onboard cards help and are cheap aswell.the handset feels premium(my honest opion) it looks and performs great aswell.prestigio needs to work on promoting their products more,coz for 1 simple reason that in S.A people think that its a fake,but it's not.prestigio keep it up and i mite become brand loyal and plz increase memory on the phones

  • Thx for the info, are there any users that have more to share over the camera, gaming, battery etc.

  • Hi, there arent any problems with phone. But do not expect to be like phones for $600+. Camera is 8mpx but not the best in its class. The quality is like sony arc s,lg 2x,lg 4x.. But the speed of the camera is like nexus4. The display is perfect. Much better than galaxy s3. Colors are real and it is vert bright. On a sunny day it is easy readable. With brightness set at 20% this display is brighter than galaxy s3 at 50%. The speaker is very loud and the sound is clear. Almost stock android with over 350mb RAM free most of the time. Very energy efficiency is the cpu,with really long lasting battery. That are my points.

  • Is there any kind of problems with this particular phone, i'm going to buy this soon so i dont want to miss this time. I have the xperia J right now and i'm definitely not impressed with its performance. I just dont want to make any more mistakes choosing the wrong/weak phone again. For any reply, thx in advance!

  • Android 4.3 is not an important update for our phones. I hope for 4.4 next year :)

  • i got information that prestigio dev team is making new firmware for our 5044 duo. lets hope that it is 4.3

  • Realy nice phone. After last update v.1.0.29. antutu 15320.

  • I completly agree with pero v comshopu ga imajo za 269�

  • changed to this phone from lg optimus 2x and must say that im very impressed. the best bang for the buck. the ips display has awsome picture, camera is very good fast user interface. you can use two sim cards one for 3g and one for 2g network. battery life is impressive you can watch movies and browse the web whole day and won't die. software support is good, got an update in a month of usage - newest android. if prestigio keeps up the good work i think i'll stay with them. the only bad thing so far is the cheap side plastic, but all in all is a great phone, defenatly worth the money. costs 270� in slovenia.

  • I recently had the opportunity to play around with this phone (for little more than a week) and I can honestly say that I am impressed. I have been with Android since the beginning and I have watched the software grow and mature (and the hardware along with it). I have always opted for the more premium phones to get the best out of the what the OS had to offer and even though the price tag on this phone is relatively cheap, it looks and behaves like a proper flag-ship phone. Excellent battery life, good screen resolution and great processing power. The general design is slightly generic and almost blandly utilitarian, but how creative can you really get with a candy bar design? Well done Prestigio.. Well done indeed.

  • In India rebranded as Lava Iris phone in budget.. Smooth screen,super fast speed,never lags.... camera average.... good gaming device, also for multimedia...

  • Very good phone for only $300. Very fast,stock Anfroid 4.2, very bright and clear display with very good viewing angles. The chipset is very battery friendly, and with brightness set to 40% I watched movies 5h and battery dropped to 55%.

  • Battery- from 20 % to 1 % took me 4 hours. Hardcore using (camera,wifi,music,video,skype,benchmarks etc) camera- 7/10 Its good :) BENCHMARKS(antutu) - fresh out of the box - 11200p ,after UPDATE(4.2.1) (OTA) 13800p. UI-simple/fast...good base widgets. design, 10/10 no comments! PRICE- 180 LVL (~ 360 $) Now send pm to PRESTIGIO developers and asked about future update plans for this device. Lets see... :)
