Hey everyone! Before we get too deep with my phone review, I just wanted to clear out that I am not a tech-blogger but I badly wanted to be one! Hahaha! Seriously though, I am a techie person by heart. I kinda worked in a call center for a telecommunications company and I am thrilled to be doing a review of a newly launched phone... So, let's go? :)
So what is the real deal?
•Dual SIM functionality
•Android OS 4.0 ICS
•8MP AF camera with dual LED flash
•2MP front facing camera
•Snapdragon 1.2ghz dual core processor
•ROM 4gb+RAM 768mb
•Wifi and wireless hotspot capability
•4.3" IPS QHD capacitive touchscreen
•Expandable memory up to 32GB
•GPS w/ aGPS support
•Dimension: 123 x 68 x 14.2 mm
•the biggest battery out amongst smartphones: 4160mAh Polymer battery which is actually almost 80% size of the phone!
SRP: 7, 777 Php (only!)
Here are some photos of my new phone:
Since I was able to take home an actual phone model, I actually had the chance to use it and fall in love with it! To confess, I am a massive phone user, (or should I say "phone abuser"?) I do a lot with my phone. I always carry it everywhere. I am a social media enthusiast, I am actually a netizen in the cyber world, so forgive me, but I maintain everything through my phone since it's the most handy way to do it.
To tell you, my previous phone, a well-known brand, can't keep up with me. Don't get me wrong, it was a great phone with all it's features and stuff but with a fully-charged battery it only lasts for an average of 4-5hrs with me. And that's what I hate the most. All the fancy and fab features will be rendered USELESS without power. But with Thrill 430x, I can do more and get more with my phone!
•The price is mind-blowing!
• It runs with Android OS, and I am an Android lover, so it was a great catch.
•The touch screen is fair and good to me, never had a problem (so far).
•The processor and memory is way impressive for it's price value.
•Playing music and video is all good with great sound and crisp display.
•A competitive smartphone that has a user friendly interface and it functions well with apps (so far)
•THE BATTERY LIFE
-So we are talking about the Thrill 430x's battery life since the start of this post, now here's an actual screen shot of my battery status as a phone abuser:
•It's kinda bulky & heavy, understandable because of the enormous Polymer battery. (I'm not complaining.)
•There were pre-installed apps that are non-sense and useless (for me)
•The back cover is tight and too secured, it's hard to get off (I dunno if that is a con, but it is for me.)
•I have a better camera with my previous phone, seriously. The autofocus is slow. And the camera needs a lot of tweaks for you to get a good shot. But it's not a big problem though.
The bulkiness won't hinder your phone enjoyment. I can go out and stay out without worrying that my phone is gonna die. So if you are still thinking twice in getting this phone, DON'T! The Cloudfone Thrill 430x is affordable, A LEGIT DEAL! Go grab one and experience for yourself!
*Wait, I heard your question.. "Where to buy?"
-Oh that one is easy.. It is already available for purchase on malls, cell phone dealers and local online stores like ZALORA. You might as well check other Cloudfone units like their Excite series and other Thrill models. They also offer a tablet series called, CloudPad.
Special thanks to Geiser Maclang, Zalora and Cloudfone!
