By popular demand, I’ve decided to review this particular phone. The weird part is, I thought I had already done it. This is quite a good phone capable of quite a lot of actions. To top it all off, it also has a CDMA version. The CDMA version doesn’t work with regular GSM networks. That’s why this phone is better than the CDMA version if you don’t have a plan to talk via internet networks.
- Processor : 528 MHz ARM 11, Qualcomm MSM7225
- RAM : 384 MB
- Android OS : 2.1 Eclair
- Camera : 5 MP
- Display : 240 x 320 pixels, 3.2 inches (~125 ppi pixel density)
On the display side, this phone has a TFT capacitive touchscreen with 16 million colors. The resolution of this phone reaches 240 x 320 pixels and the screen itself is 3.2 inches big. The screen’s pixel density is around 125 ppi.
On the memory side, this phone has 384 MB RAM and 512 MB ROM. That doesn’t really leave much room for internal storage, but the MicroSD card can help with that particular problem. It can use any MicroSD card of up to 32 GB.
The camera is a 5 MP camera that can photograph at resolutions as high as 2592 x 1944 pixels. Some of the features of the camera include : autofocus, LED flash and geo-tagging. It can also record video, but at a really low quality. This phone also doesn’t include a secondary camera.
On the hardware side, this phone has a 528 MHz ARM 11 processor and a Qualcomm MSM7225 chipset. The problem here is that it is lacking a GPU. That means that it is not quite as efficient as other phones in rendering highly detailed software.
Last but not least, on the software side this Android device is running Android OS v2.1 Eclair and is upgrade-able to 2.2 Froyo. Since that was the latest version of Android at the time this phone was released, I’ll cut it some slack.
All and all, this is a pretty decent Android Phone. It may lack in many departments if you are to compare it with the stronger phones today, but it gets the job done.
You can get this phone from Amazon.
