    512mb man lang sna. I’ve seen better sub 2k android phones from skk

    As if 512MB RAM isn’t bad enough, nag-labas pa sila ng 256MB!… this phone has “stay away” written all over it.

    You’ll get crazy talaga pag ginamit mo to. Naiimagine ko ang lag. Sana niliitan nalang ang phone (2″), tapos square tapos manipis ang bezel tapos tinaggal ang cams, tapos nilagyan ng wristband.

    I used to own A Lenovo A60 (their first android for 8k!) which had 256mb and gingerbread. It couldnt even launch the original temple run…

    • Zobel says:

      Pinagpilian ko din yang A60 dati. But Alcatel 990 won by virtue of its bigger screen. 9K na walang kwenta.

    may RAM expander app po for any adroid phones up to 2gb, kung gusto nyo i expand nyo nalang, may instruction naman kung pano gawin yun nasa youtube, naka bili na kayo ng mura 2gb RAM pa :)

    • Zobel says:

      RAM Expander will only work if the kernel of the android phone supports it. Believe me I’ve tried.

    Yung una kpo myphone yung rain 2g nag aalangan kse ako if ok ba talaga yung brand. The best decision, dti kse puro Samsung ang secondary phone ko. 256 mb ram lang po yun di nag lag sa nfs, dragonvale, candy crush, etc. Mas mabilis po yun khit aling brand at double the price range, di hamak na mas nag lalag yung Samsung ko. 10 hrs battery life continuous wifi at 1300 mAh, I think di mag lag tong craze, mas ok to kesa sa bar phone na gamet ko pang commute, iwas nakaw or at least di masakit pah nawala, may wifi if nsa mall pko useful to.

    Hi my cousin bought this phone last week, just want to leave a comment about this product. so far ok sya when it comes to messaging and other apps na naka install na nung binili. Pero pag gaming usapan, ang bagal nya at minsan may mga times na sa facebook log-in ang tagal bago mag-appear yung digital keypad. all in all i’ll give it a 5/10 kasi napakamura niya para sa isang smartphone kung di ka naman gamer and simpleng apps lang mejo ok na sya.

    Di ko pa nasusubukan i-root tong rio craze, so di ko pa alam potential nya when rooted and kung compatible ba ang kernel nia para sa swapfile. i’ll give an update whenever na matripan na naming i-sacrifice ung warranty. :D

  13. Sacz says:

    forgot to mention na malinaw ung screen and malaki, almost the size of an iphone 5. tho the difference is HD ung sa ip5.
