    i hope that is sturdy. sirain kasi ang alcatel but for an android phone, the price is not bad.. pati sa specs, pang entry level na.

    noob question about sa android lang po. may 4by4 ba na virtual keyboard ang froyo? yung hindi querty type? tia

    • brutus says:

      yes, Android has that option, but using a T9 keyboard on a capacitive screen, you have to type very fast

    This must be low-cost Android chipsets coming onboard.

  9. geogetski666 says:

    i presume the unit uses the same mediatek chipset that dual sim china android phones are using the processors are outdated and much slower than the same clocked qualcomm processors :)

    I find it funny that people who love to diss products are those who don’t have money. These poor souls have the guts to be obnoxious but doesn’t have the wealth, nor the intelligence to show for it… tsk tsk tsk…

    Bought the phone for my mom last October. I hope this post ain’t too long and sir Abe would approve it.

    Texting is HARD – you need to retype and retype since the screen is so slow. Keypads can be set to qwerty, 3 x 4 and other formats — all which are are frustrating to use. If you love to text, this phone is definitely NOT for you. A remedy for texting is to use the landscape mode of the phone, remove all the add on features (dictionary, chinese keyboards etcetc) and text slowly.

    The touchscreen also lags, as you navigate, you will definitely press other icons by accident.

    Call features – voice clarity was great and the signal is good for both simcards (dualsim) – tested it on Sun Globe and Smart.

    Browsing was ok, using the phone’s default browser was like browsing on an old resistive touch screen – There is a magnifying glass icon that controls the size of the webpage. But you will be able to access your regular websites perfectly.

    Wifi was good.

    It only has edge, but give it a fast sim and a clear open sky, and you should be ok.

    The sound was surprisingly clear and loud. Ringtones and MP3’s were a joy to listen to. Video streaming was ok and it did not hang nor lag for youtube or mp4’s.

    Battery was ok

    Android was also ok, everything basic works fine – e-readers, messengers, emails etc. For games — sudoku, chess and other low end games worked. Angry birds and fruit ninja lags and hangs.

    All in all, for 4800, it’s a pretty decent phone. Don’t expect too much for such a low price, you mainly pay for the android/dual sim feature – if you do not need dual sims, get a galaxy young.
