    The first thing you pay attention to is the thickness of the smartphone and its weight. Globex GU5011B is really very light (143 grams) and compact, there are no obvious protruding / sticking buttons. Around the side perimeter of the smartphone there is a decorative red insert, which attracts attention. The screen is covered with glass and has small sides on the sides.

    On the top panel there is a front camera, a speaker, microUSB, an output under the jack 3.5 headset of the OMTP standard, a proximity sensor and a light sensor.

    The impressions are pleasant from the smartphone, it is easy enough to get to the battery and sim cards. But the manufacturer, as for me, missed a fairly important nuance, this is an express microSD change, you have to remove the battery. But overall Globex 5011 is a lightweight and eye-catching smartphone with a great exterior design.


    You can safely say the screen in the Globex gu5011b is the pride of this unit. The diagonal is 5 inches, made using OGS, IPS technology with a resolution of 960? 540 pixels. At any viewing angle, it perfectly displays color reproduction.

    Color rendering at an angle.

    The screen is made using the OGS technology - one glass solution.
    Information from the network:
    “Screens made using this technology, due to the absence of a layer between the sensor and liquid crystal layers, are distinguished by increased brightness and large viewing angles. By reducing the thickness of the display, the devices also turn out thinner and lighter. ”
