Cloudfone Next Infinity Quattro First Impressions
Cloudfone is not leaving 2017 behind without releasing a number of reasonably-priced smartphones that pack features normally found in more expensive offerings. In this case, we’re talking about their Next Infinity Series, and leading that pack is the Cloudfone Next Infinity Quattro. Check out our first thoughts on the device.
The first thing you’ll notice about the Cloudfone Next Infinity Quattro is its size and display. At 6-inches, it has a fairly large footprint but doesn’t sport a typical phablet look thanks to its 18:9 aspect ratio. This leaves that Quattro with a relatively slim top and bottom bezels.
Going back to the display, it is a 6-inch screen with HD+ resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio which Cloudfone calls the Infinite Vision Display. Found above it is the earpiece, the 20MP main selfie camera, 8MP wide-angle selfie camera, notifications light, LED flash, and sensors. The Quattro uses on-screen navigation keys so the bottom part is devoid of any physical buttons.
On the right are the power/lock button and volume rocker, while on the left is the hybrid SIM tray.
Found at the bottom are the 3.5mm audio port, microphone, loudspeaker, and micro USB which is a bit weird considering that some more affordable phones are now using USB Type-C.
Flip it on its back and you will see the 13MP and 5MP rear cameras, LED flash, and the fingerprint sensor.
In the hands, the Quattro feels tall and wider than most devices but can be held comfortably with one hand. Navigation, though, would still require you to use two hands.
It feels well-built and hefty, which is understandable considering the large 4,010mAh battery. It’s relatively slim, and it feels premium thanks to its metallic metal body, while the 2.5D Gorilla Glass on the top curves nicely to the bezel. If you’re worried about getting scratches on your device, don’t, as it comes with a screen protector and a jelly case in the package which is good.
Powering the Quattro is a MediaTek Helio P25 octa-core processor clocked at 2.6GHz, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, and a skinned Android 7.0 Nougat. A quick run of AnTuTu benchmarks yielded a mid-range score of 63,759.
The Cloudfone Next Infinity Quattro is priced at Php12,999. Stay tuned for our full review.
