CloudFone has launched its new 4.5-inch quad core Android phone, the Excite 450q. The phone, is priced at Php4,999, making it the cheapest quad core smartphone in the country, and that should be enough for it to sell well.
Still, in some ways it is hard to get excited about the "Excite". It is plus and minus. The fixed focus camera is really a downer. On the other hand you do get a bigger than average battery. It falls short on the looks department. But the price is really good. As for the RAM, 512 MB is what you can expect from a phone at this price range.
- Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)
- 4.5-inch HWVGA (480 x 854)
- Dual sim
- 4 GB internal storage expandable via a MicroSD card slot
- 512 MB RAM
- 1.2 GHz quad core Qualcomm MSM8225Q processor
- Adreno graphics processor
- 5 MP fixed focus primary camera
- VGA front camera
- 1800 mAh battery
All in all, it makes an interesting alternative option to a Cherry Mobile Flare or Razor.
