Finally, it should be noted that we will not need more than one cable. USB-C To get it working, and for equipment without a native USB-C video output, we can use the included power supply and connect it via HDMI, as it also includes the mini HDMI to HDMI cable required for this. As you can see, it’s a monitor that comes with everything you need to make it work on both PC and consoles and even mobile.
Unboxing and external analysis
This monitor is packaged in a hard white cardboard box where we only see the brand’s logo on the front, with both the manufacturer’s website and the words “I Live by Mobile” on the sides. life).
On the back, we find the description of the device in a corner where the model (G1 Game) is indicated, but there are no features beyond the fact that we are facing a 15.6-inch 1080p screen.
When we opened the box we found an instruction booklet and a perfectly preserved monitor.
But first let’s see what are the accessories distributed in the three boxes under the monitor.
In the box labeled “Accessories” we have a microfiber cloth, a USB-A to USB-C cable, a power adapter and two rubber bands with adhesive for changing the feet from the factory.
The power adapter has a small size similar to that of mobile phones; its maximum power is 15 watts.
By the way, in the short user guide they briefly indicate the connection modes that we can use with this monitor; As you can see, we can connect directly via USB-C and thus we can use a single cable, but we have the possibility to connect to equipment (such as old laptops or game consoles and mobile phones) where this possibility is not available. Using HDMI, but in this case we will have to use two cables as it will also need to be connected to the current.
We have connection cables in two other small boxes: a mini HDMI to HDMI cable in one and a USB-C to USB-C cable in the other.
After seeing the accessories, we will now see the monitor: we unpack it and see that it comes with the magnetic cover attached, which completely protects it from the front and back.
The cover is made of plastic, but has a process on the outside that gives it a carbon fiber aesthetic.
On the back of the monitor, we can see that the bottom part is thicker and the magnetic cover fits right here.
On the inside, the case has a soft coating to prevent scratching or damaging the screen.
Here the Arzopa G1 is already “naked”.
On the obverse we see that the edges are extremely thin, while the lower side is slightly thicker. Here the manufacturer edited its logo.
Other than the aforementioned “step”, nothing noteworthy on the back after removing the cover.
At the bottom we can see two slits as well as two rubber tracks that are nothing more than the two stereo speakers that the screen includes.
On the right side of the monitor is the power/reset button in the bottom area, an analog wheel with buttons for controlling monitor options in its OSD (we’ll see that later) and a 3.5mm minijack audio output. . .
In the same space on the left, what we have are two USB-C inputs and mini HDMI.
You may have noticed that the screen reflects a lot of light, but that’s because it came with a shield from the factory. When we lift it, the light is much less reflected (in the image below, a 2000W white bulb is almost pointed at you).
The cover also acts as a support and allows us to place the monitor vertically without any problems.
Given how the device is, it’s time to test it out to see how it works.
How does testing Arzopa G1 work in real time?
To test this Arzopa G1 monitor, we will be able to see the most comfortable use case by connecting it directly to a laptop via USB-C, with a single cable.
Let’s start by looking at the monitor’s OSD, which can be accessed by simply pressing the side wheel (swiping up is a shortcut to adjust brightness, swiping down is for volume).
On the first screen of the OSD we can configure the brightness, contrast, black level, enable or disable DCR (dynamic contrast ratio) and sharpness.
In the second tab, we can configure the color temperature, HUE (the level at which the color is adjusted on the magenta – green axis) and saturation values. In the third tab we have the volume control and in the fourth tab we can configure the Low Blue Light level, language, HDR, FreeSync and whether we want to reset the monitor to factory settings. Finally, we can manually select the video input in the last tab.
There are two specific settings we have to take into account, and the first of them is FreeSync, since we will have to enable it manually in the OSD of the monitor, otherwise the PC will not detect it as compatible.
If you look at all the images above, it says that the monitor is fed from a 5V power supply, but it also says that it works at 1920 x 1080 pixels and 60Hz. The monitor is 144Hz, so you have made this setting. To change it in windows display properties.
Once this is done, it will appear to be running at 144 Hz.
After seeing the OSD, we’ll now look at how the monitor behaves, and let’s start by looking at the representation and balance of whites and blacks.
Thanks to Arzopa’s use of an LED-IPS matrix, the representation is truly excellent, with really deep blacks and very white whites that never turn yellow.
Check out the gallery below, the screen is completely blank and completely black; in the latter case, the monitor seems to be practically turned off (and has no local dimming, as if it were there).
Let’s go with the color representation.
As a good IPS panel, the representation of colors is very good, but it’s true that they end up a bit whitish. In the gallery below you can see the representation of red (red), green (green), and blue (blue) that make up RGB.
As you can see, the color representation is very good, it might be a bit whitish but nothing distracting or noticeable. The good thing is that the color homogeneity is excellent and there is no density difference according to the area of the screen, the color is very homogeneous.
Given the “technical” analysis of the monitor, once you start using it to give you our personal opinion on the matter, it’s time to tell you how it’s behaving in the real moment. As we mentioned earlier, we used this Arzopa G1, which only connects to a laptop via USB-C as the secondary display, one of the connection modes we found most useful.
The monitor’s color and image rendition is flawless, and there’s no noticeable difference from the laptop’s panel (actually IPS Full HD and at 144 Hz as well). Action scenes look very fluid and smooth (if you see ghosting in the image below, it’s because the camera lens is opening, not because it’s displayed on the monitor).
The Arzopa G1 is a small, thin monitor with built-in speakers, making it ideal even for console gaming. The built-in stereo speakers work well, although of course they are not a miracle, but they do not distort at all, they have a reasonable maximum volume and, overall, more than enough to enjoy a good multimedia experience. Curiously, when using them to watch a movie, for example, the encapsulation is not noticeable at all, meaning they don’t create echoes and sound “turned off” like many monitor speakers do.
Overall, the user and gaming experience on this monitor is excellent, showing that the manufacturer isn’t lying when they say it’s one of the best portable monitors designed for gaming.
Conclusion and decision
Manufacturer Arzopa presents us with this G1 Gaming an extremely thin and light 15.6 inch monitor, very easy to carry, a feature that is enhanced by the fact that it includes a cover that fits this monitor perfectly and protects it when we are not using it. , also serves to keep the monitor in place when we want to use it. It is true that this case does not allow us to place it in many different positions and perhaps it is missing a VESA anchor on the back, but it is unattainable at all, especially since it is so thin.
This is a monitor that won’t cost you anything to take from one place to another, even with your laptop; It’s ideal for having a second screen wherever you go because you’ll only need one USB-C in addition. connection to make it work. For the rest, it remains versatile as it can be used for PCs, consoles and even mobile devices and all the necessary accessories are included in the box, which is nice and even more so considering the price of this item. .
And as we’ve seen, despite being a very competent monitor even for gaming, its price doesn’t just seem reasonable to us, it’s even cheap, especially if we compare it to the alternatives it offers. Other manufacturers like AOC or ASUS that are technically inferior and still a bit more expensive.
For all these reasons, we believe this Arzopa G1 Game 15.6 deserves our Platinum award and our recommendation for both its performance and design.
