EE Hawk smartphone review

Anyone that loves a bargain will love this smartphone, in my EE Hawk smartphone review I take a look at what you get for this superb price.

 

EE Hawk Design

 

 

The EE Hawk may be aimed at budget users but the design actually feels good quality with an aluminium frame and glass construction. The phone is quite slim measuring 7.9mm thick and witha weight of just 134g it’s lightweight for a budget smartphone.

 

There are some design elements that add a nice touch, there is a chrome-coloured ring around the camera lens and the speaker grill gives the phone a great look.

 

EE Hawk Features

 

The phone won’t be topping any charts when it comes to speed or technology but it does perform very well for a phone of this price. There is an octacore processor (a MediaTek MT6750 1.5GHz octa-core chip) and 2GB RAM, this is perfectly adequate for most users.

 

 

The phone does include a fingerprint sensor on the back, a thing only seen on higher end devices until recently. The sensor is in a natural position, the phone wakes up quickly and easy when you pick it up.

 

Android 7.1 is on board so there are lots of apps included to get you started right out of the box.

 

 

The phone has some added music features that are good for a budget device, you get Dolby Mobile enhanced sound for superb clarity. You also get a pair of JBL earbuds in the box, these have an anti-tangle flat cable and offer a much better sound quality than the standard earphones you get with other phones.

 

 

The battery is a 2,500mAh unit, this was quite good for normal use although it may struggle to make it through a full day for heavy users.

EE Hawk Camera

 

 

The camera package is actually quite good on the EE Hawk, you have a 13-megapixel lens on the back with a dual tone LED flash. This worked really well to illuminate the shot and video quality is decent at 1080p FullHD.

 

Selfie shots are taken with the 8-megapixel camera on the front, this took good quality photos and post-shot editing gave lots of options for perfecting the photo before sharing it on social networks.

 

Verdict:

 

The EE Hawk squarely sets it sights on the budget smartphone market and it performs well when compared to similarly priced phone. The build quality feels good and the performance is decent, it’s the perfect phone for a first-time Android user that wants some decent features without paying flagship prices.
