The KingSing S2 is a near identical look-a-like of the popular LG G3. In fact if it wasn’t for the smaller 5-inch display and KingSing logos then it would be hard to tell the two phones from each other.
With a 5-inch display and super narrow 1.6mm bezels the KingSing S2 is just as comfy in the palm of your hand as a standard 4.5-inch or 4.7-inch phone from just a few years ago. But to make it even more suitable to one handed operation the S2 also features rear mounted volume controls and power button.
The phone features a built-in heart rate monitor located, again, on the rear of the phone. Simply place your finger or thumb over the sensor and the built-in software will give you accurate heart rate details.
Double tap to wake is a feature that many phone fans are asking phone and we are seeing manufacturer add the option to their own ROM’s. King Sing to have added quick wake gestures and options to the S2. Tap to wake has been added, as well as lock screen gesture controls which active apps.
Specifications for the phone are mid-range, meaning pricing will be attractive while performance shouldn’t suffer too much. The processor is a quad-core MT6582 chip, there is 1GB RAM, a 5-inch HD 720p display and 8 mega-pixel main camera. The only feature which worries us is the 2000mAh battery, but with Android 4.4 Kitkat power management optimizations hopefully this won’t be much of a concern.
The phone is available for about $115 from a few resellers and the shipping is free.
