Orange Nura


The orange operator has presented its new Orange Nura smartphone . This terminal is the company's first phablet and has been developed together with Alcatel OneTouch . The mobile is designed for those who want to have a team with balanced features at an affordable price .

The smartphone has a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels, which will ensure an acceptable quality when reproducing the images. Inside it incorporates a  Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor running at a power of 1.2 gigahertz . This is accompanied by a gigabyte RAM , somewhat scarce if we want to run several applications at the same time.

As for its internal memory , the smartphone will have 16 gigabytes , but we can expand it using a microSD card if it seems insufficient. Its main camera has a sensor eight megapixels and the front comes with five megapixels . Thanks to it, we can make all the selfies and video calls we want.

The connections section is one of the most outstanding, since it comes with 4G, NFC, WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth . The device has Android 4.4 KitKat pre-installed , the operating system for mobiles and tablets from Google . The battery of the Orange Nura is 3,100 milliamps , which will involve a range of one day , approximately.

Likewise, as we have already commented previously, the phone has a very economical price , since it only costs 200 euros if it is acquired in its free version . If not, Orange proposes pricing plans that we will detail later. Next, we are going to thoroughly analyze the mobile.


Design and display

The design of the Orange Nura has very marked elegant lines , which will ensure a good grip on the terminal. The equipment is available in black and white , depending on the user's preference. On the sides are the volume buttons , as well as the switch to turn the terminal on and off . In part top is located the outlet for headphones and the port for charging the terminal using microUSB . It has measures of 150 x 76 x 8.5 millimeters, which makes it a very thin and light smartphone, since it only weighs 165 grams .

The phablet has an IPS 5.5 - inch screen with a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels . Thanks to it we will be able to see any content that we reproduce at an acceptable quality. Users of this equipment will be able to enjoy a brilliant display from any perspective, even from an angle of almost 180 degrees . In addition, we have to say that the surface of the terminal has been used to the maximum, which is a point in its favor.


Camera and multimedia

The Orange Nura has a main eight megapixel camera that incorporates touch of a single finger zoom , autofocus , panorama mode , night mode , continuous shooting and a series of filters to retouch your photographs. Additionally, the phablet has the ability to record 1080p videos . It also has a five-megapixel front camera, a quality not found in any mid-range phone. With it you will have the possibility of taking selfies or making video callsthrough third-party applications such as Skype or Hangouts .

Regarding its  multimedia formats, the smartphone will come with the most common ones such as  MP3, Midi, AAC, AMR, WAV, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, 3GP, MP4, 3GPP .


Power and memory

The phablet has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor running at 1.2 gigahertz , which offers a great balance between performance and use of the terminal. This is accompanied by a gigabyte RAM , which may be scarce if we want to run several applications at the same time.

The internal memory of the terminal is 16 gigabytes , which we can expand using a microSD card of up to 32 gigabytes . If it still seems insufficient, we can always count on a cloud storage service such as Google Drive or DropBox .


Operating system and applications

The Orange Nura comes with pre-installed Android 4.4 KitKat , Google's mobile and tablet operating system . With it you can access the more than a million applications that are in its online store. Among the most popular are Facebook, Twitter or Instagram .

But not only that. You can also enjoy all the apps that Orange offers . These include Assitant , which helps you configure your phablet quickly, Gestures , which allows you to access any application quickly by simply drawing on the screen, and Updates , to download and manage new Orange apps  .


Connectivity and autonomy

One of the points in which this terminal stands out the most is its connectivity . The device has 4G , so you can surf the Internet at maximum speed, and with NFC, for mobile payments. Likewise, it has other types of more basic connections such as WiFi , so you can connect it to wireless networks, GPS , so you don't get lost on your road trips, and Bluetooth , so you can synchronize it with other terminals. Likewise, it comes with a 3.5mm miniJack port for headphones.

The Orange Nura has a battery of 3,100 milliamps , which is equivalent to thirteen hours in conversation , normal for this type of terminals.


Availability and opinions

The phablet will be available in Orange stores from November for 145 euros in installments of six euros per month , if you buy it associated with Orange rates, or for 200 euros if you prefer to buy it in its free version .

The Orange Nura stands out for being a phablet with connections typical of a high-end terminal . Equally, it is interesting to see that its front camera is perfect for lovers of selfies . We recommend this smartphone to those who are looking for a large screen mobile that has an affordable price .
