Qmart Q1 Credit Card Sized Mini Phone

Q1 SlimIf you’re looking for something small and super thin, that’s cheap to buy, and a little bit different to what most people are using the Qmart Q1 Credit Card Sized Mini Mobile Phone is a really good choice. There are a few various models of these credit card phone for sale, such as the AEKU M5, but the Qmart Q1 is the thinnest yet at just 4 millimetres, which is incredibly thin for a mobile phone.

Fair enough, it’s not as thin as an actual credit card, it’s about 4 – 5 times as thick, but that is still very impressive. The Q1 has a retro blue and light orange TFT screen display, and the screen is super tiny at around 1 inch! Most people you show this phone to will never have seen one before so they are great if you want something quite unique.

The Qmart Q1 is very small and discreet and has many of the basic features of a standard phone. Of course, you can call and text, but other than those standard features it also has a built-in radio, Bluetooth capability, memory card slot, and an MP3 player. The radio requires headphones to work.

The phone is GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications), so should have no problem working with most of the standard UK networks SIM cards other than 3G. The Qmart Q1 is also noted for it’s fairly impressive battery life, which has a standby time of around a week with minimal phone use. Talk time is approx 3 – 5 hours. It charges by USB (cable included). This could be one of the contenders for best mini novelty phone when you consider the cheap price and good buyer reviews.

The Qmart Q1 is available in lots of different colours, including Blue, Pink, Purple, Black (Pictured), and Gold. At such a cheap price the Q1 is an excellent little compact, unique mobile phone that is perfect as a backup, or even as your main phone if want a really thin phone that’s super easy to carry around, simple to use, and you’re not bothered about keeping up with the Jones’ by owning the latest and greatest cellphone that has just hit the market.

The Q1 is for people who want something not many people will have. If you’re looking for one of these phones in White then you may have to buy it’s fatter twin brother, the AEKU M5, which is slightly thicker by half a millimetre. However, this model, the AEKU M5 is available in pure White, and also with a few different colour trims such as Pink, Green and Blue. Looking for something thicker, but still tiny, take a look at the Secret Car Key Fob Phone (linked to above) or the J8 Finger Sized Phone.

Samsung GT E1080i Phone Problem Fixes

From reading through some of the bad reviews on the Samsung GT E1080i, I see that some of the same issues keep coming up time and time again. People are having problems with certain features of the phone. Before addressing some of those I should point out, that most of the reviews for this phone are excellent.

The phone is worthy of good reviews, as it is a very good phone for the price (I own one). However, there is some confusion among buyers with a few of the features. Hopefully, this post will help sort some of those common problems out.

Common problems that users are finding confusing.

Problem: Occasionally switches off overnight:  Fix: Turn off power saving mode as this can make the phone turn itself off automatically when not in use for a number of hours. Click OK to go to the main menu. Click Settings > Display > Power Saving Mode > Click Off and press save.

Problem: Can't turn off predictive text when trying to send a text: Fix: Turn off the T9 predictive text dictionary by pressing and holding down the hash key whilst on the writing a text screen. If this doesn’t work try just pressing the hash key a few separate times until it disables predictive text.

Problem: Fake call doesn’t work: How to activate a fake call. To activate a fake call just press and hold the down position on the navigation pad until you see the “fake call activated” text show up on the screen. You can also set how long you want the phone to wait before the fake call starts ringing. To do this press OK to go to the main menu > click Settings > Application > Call > Fake Call > Click Fake call timer and set the duration you want. Now all you need to do when you want to activate the fake call is press and hold down on the Navigation pad for two seconds.

The navigation pad is the four directional buttons that surround the "OK" button in the middle of the phone, in case your unsure! And that’s it, depending on how long you set the timer for the phone will ring after the timer has counted down. If you want to use the Fake call when the keypad is locked, just press down on the Navigation pad four times one after the other and that will activate the Fake call to be enabled.

What is the Samsung GT E1080i Radiation SAR Level? The maximum SAR recorded for the Samsung E1080i was 0.645 Watts Per Kilogram (0.64 W/kg). This is a very low SAR level and this phone actually falls nicely into the middle of the top ten list for the lowest SAR level mobile phones in 2011 (Still a fairly low-level in 2017 / 2018). I should also add that 0.64W/kg was the highest SAR recorded for the E1080i, and most of the time the SAR level from normal use will be considerably lower than this.
