TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

Smartwatches with Android 5.1 are currently being produced in large numbers in China. I introduced the TenFifteen F3 Smartwatch for detail review.

TenFifteen F3 has Android 5.1 smartwatch and offers a circular OLED display with 1.4 inches and 400 x 400 pixels, also is powered by a MediaTek MTK6580 and 1GB of RAM.

The simple smartwatches from LG, Huawei, Motorola, Sony and Samsung mostly use Android Wear or Tizen OS.

A smartwatch with a “real” Android is therefore still quite rare. Presumably because Android does not want to use the OS officially on wearables.

TenFifteen F3: Design and Appearance

Visually, the new TenFifteen F3 smartwatch does not really differ from its predecessor. It is quite voluminous due to the 1.39-inch display, but whoever wears a smartwatch should not have delicate wrists anyway. I personally am a fan of massive watches and have no problems with the TenFifteen F3 Smartwatch in our review in 2018.

The current Samsung Gear S3 Frontier is not exactly small either. The TenFifteen F3 Smartwatch is also made of metal (in black or silver).

The battery cover on the back has to be opened somewhat cumbersome with four screws.

Then you get access to the slot for the nano-SIM. An extension of the now 16 GB large memory (scarcely 11.75 GB are free). On the bottom, there is also a heart rate monitor.

The bracelet is made of rubber(in crocodile rubber look) is nice, but unspectacular manufactured.

Unfortunately, you can not change it yourself, because inside the GPS/WLAN/GSM antennas are located. My test sample costs $110 and comes from Gearbest.com.

TenFifteen F3: Display

A 1.39-inch, circular display with a resolution of 400 x 400 pixels is still a highlight in this price range (110 dollars) and does not have to shy away from the comparison to the Huawei Watch.

The display uses the full surface and you do not see a “flat tire” as in the case of the Moto 360 second gen. However, the smartwatch does not offer automatic brightness control.

TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

The maximum brightness is ok and can be varied in three steps via the on/off switch and the settings there.

In direct sunlight, but it is a bit tight. For a then compensated for the fairly high resolution.

The display is a lot of fun because of the numerous watch faces. it is activated via the on/off switch or via the “arm-to-face-activated-the-display” gesture. That saves electricity.

TenFifteen F3: Hardware and Performance

The TenFifteen F3 in our test uses a MediaTek MT6580 quad-core CPU with a maximum of 1.3GHz per core and the ARM Maili-400 graphics processor.

TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

The smartwatch uses 1 GB of RAM and thus achieves 360 points in Geekbench 3 in single-core and 1193 in multi-core.

The AnTuTu benchmark showed the SoC in the test just under 23000 points. But for some simpler games like Angry Birds or Flappy Birds, the power is still enough. More prohibits itself because of the small display.

TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

The clock is of course not intended for current games and even with complex websites, it comes to light stuttering. You can also use games like Angry Birds or Flappy Birds on the screen.

TenFifteen F3: Software

The TenFifteen F3 smartwatch is powered not by a “slimmed down” Android Wear, but by a “full-fledged” Android 5.1.

TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

This factory preinstalled almost all apps from Google. If you are still missing something, you can install the corresponding apps via the Play Store.

TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

I am not dependent on the rather limited selection of Android Wear.

The upper of the three keys acts as a backspace key, the middle one as an on/off switch, and the bottom one of the app’s context-sensitive functions.

TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

The volume can only be changed via softkeys in the corresponding sub-item of the clock. This is a bit annoying.

All inputs (text, SMS, e-mails) are made via the large touch screen, the three pushers on the right and a virtual keyboard.

Here you need a little time to get used to it. After that, the entries worked really well.

In addition to calendars, sound recorders, and the Play Store you will also find a pedometer and a rather inaccurate heart rate monitor, the matching sensor is located on the bottom of the clock.

Fans of sports activities should better use the Runtastic app from the store. Thanks to the built-in GPS receiver, you can count not only his steps but also the distance covered and the current pace/speed.

TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

A big advantage compared to most smartwatches with Android Wear! Unfortunately, the (A) GPS receiver worked reasonably only in conjunction with a WLAN or GSM.

In addition, there is also a music player for MP3 on the internal memory, a full-fledged web browser and the essential for phone calls apps (contacts, SMS, phone).

TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

Entries can be made quite comfortably via the virtual keyboard, at least as long as the characters and letters are not at the bottom of the display.

Just point & comma are problematic. For longer texts, it is definitely not enough.

TenFifteen F3: Multimedia and Music

The built-in music player displays the track name as well as the cover art and plays the sound either via Bluetooth headphones or a tiny speaker.

TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

If you like something more comfortable, you can also install Google Play Music. So you can use his TenFifteen F3 on the road as a training computer with music playback.

Nearly 10.5 Gbyte memory is enough for songs so easy. In the video, on YouTube, you get a good idea of the great TenFifteen F3 smartwatch in 2018.

TenFifteen F3: Connectivity

In contrast to the usual smartwatches based on Android Wear (and apart from the Samsung Gear S2 / S3 with eSIM), the TenFifteen F3 Smartwatch in the analisis allows you to surf the Internet via WLAN b / g (only 2.4 GHz) or UMTS.

TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

Thanks to its own nano-SIM, microphone and speakers you can even make calls with it. The data transfer rate is ok (60Mbit).

All files, pictures, and videos are transmitted either via micro-USB or via Bluetooth 4 from the Mac or PC.

TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

The transmission and reception performance of the smartwatch was – depending on the network – completely sufficient.

The callers sound well audible (but for all in the vicinity) on the built-in speaker. Something more discreet and less conspicuous is that also via a Bluetooth headset.

TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

If you do not like it, you can also use the TenFifteen F3 as a companion. Then all the messages of the smartphone are simply transferred via Bluetooth to the clock.

The matching app is already installed on the clock and is available for Android smartphones via download.

TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

Users of iPhones look here but in the tube. The corresponding app itself is also very poorly translated.

TenFifteen F3: Battery

The smartwatch is charged via a magnetic charging shell, similar to the LG Watch R. The battery of the Smartwatch delivers 550 mAh and lasts between one and one and a half days.

TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

But if you use the display often and for a long time, you will have to reload after just 4 hours. The charging process is but finished after about 30 minutes.

TenFifteen F3: Conclusions and Reviews

The TenFifteen F3 in our review offers for converted $110 a great workmanship. The metal case and the 1.39 inch OLED with its 400 by 400 pixels are the highlights.

TenFifteen F3 Review: Impressive Smartwatch with Android OS in 2018

The GPS receiver, however, worked only moderately. On the way via WLAN or UMTS (nano-SIM) Surfing or phoning are nice features.

So you are completely independent of the smartphone. I can install almost any available Android app through the Play Store. Unfortunately, you only get them as an import.

TenFifteen F3: Price and Where to buy cheaper?

Now you can buy new watch TenFifteen F3 at a good and low price for only $ 112.99 with free shipping. So, the watch has a good appearance and fully matches its price in 2018.
