Budget phones like Moto C, Redmi 4A and Meizu M5 are all tempting offers and today we have another premium device that costs only 99$ – Vernee Thor E. Budget phones are very competitive and I am amazed how good they have become. Vernee Thor E offers Android Nougat, a big 5020 mAh battery and a decent Octa-Core CPU with 3GB RAM. On paper, features looks stunning, but let’s take a first look at what Vernee Thor E really feels like
Vernee Thor E Specs
Compact phones are a dying breed and it’s always nice to see a simple 5.0-inch HD device.
Don’t let the price tag fool you, Thor E is daily driver ready with a decent Octa-Core CPU, 3GB RAM and 16GB storage. Storage can be expanded using one of the sim slots for up to 128GB extra space. Android Nougat is the icing on the cake for Vernee’s budget device.

Vernee Thor E Unboxing
Vernee’s new budget solution comes packed in a neat white box. Inside you’ll find the phone, a Fast Charger, mUSB cable and user manual.
Charging a 5020mAh would be a pain with just a simple 1A charger. Luckily Vernee provides a bricky 2A Fast Charger. Most 100$ devices pack regular chargers, however, Vernee provides additional value.
In general, the package is adequate for a budget device, no headphones and case/covers.
Vernee Thor E First Impressions
I will just go out and say it – this is the best-looking device I’ve seen for 99$! Vernee have really outdone themselves with Thor E.
The phone is heavily inspired by Huawei P8 and P9 not only by looks but build quality.
Running on stock Android 7.0 Nougat Thor E feels like a Nexus device, than a small Chinese brand one.
It’s not common for cheap Chinese devices to feature the latest security patch. Vernee Thor E looks like a real champ.
You would expect a 5020mAh device to be bulky and thick, especially at 99$, however, I am in AWE!
Vernee Thor E is neither, I am absolutely astonished how light, thin and nicely build this budget mobile is.
Nice to see the dying Headphone Jack present in Thor E.
And last but not least here is a photo I took of my flowers on the terrace using Thor E’s 8MP Main Camera.
Colours are accurate and there’s plenty of details here.
Vernee Thor E looks like another awesome budget device you can get right now for just 99$!
My full review is coming next week, after I spend some more time with this premium budget device.
