Qmobile Noir A10 vs Noir A8

       Qmobile NOIR A8 VS NOIR A10

About a few days ago, Qmobile launched its all new Noir A10 in the markets. The smart phone is pretty much similar to its predecessor Noir A8. Although we were expecting a little more from Qmobile this time as it was releasing good phones every month but this time it did not come up to our expectations. A little advancement than A8 should have been a good choice. But what can we say , it totally depends upon Qmobile. Some of the main differences b/w Noir A8 and Noir A10 are as following:-

Size and Display:-

Noir A8 had a 4.3 inches WVGA screen ( ) While the Noir A10 has its main attraction which is its 5 inches IPS LCD screen which is FWVGA and which has 16 M colors. Which is far better than Noir A8.

My Opinion:-

 As A10 is the new model so i surely will recommend you this smart phone. It is a little better than A8 and this kind of phone cannot be found in only 18,000pkr. But if you are low on budget as I am than you can surely go for A8 which is also a spectacular phone by Qmobile.
