1. 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 (HD) IPS display delivers superfine text and crisp photos.
I would consider myself as a visual person, being an aesthete. So these features matter a lot! No grainy texts and images! Plus the physical look of the phone is real sleek and handsome! It isn’t too heavy as well, so you won’t feel like you’re carrying weights in your pocket!
There are also built-in themes that allow you to customize the look of your phone from the inside!
2. AGC Dragontrail™ scratch-resistant glass
Yay! Scratches on phones are really a pet peeve for the neat-freak in me. Let’s see if I can let it live entirely without a case! I noticed though that fingerprints easily mark the surface but they also easily wipe off! The screen is very reflective but not to a point that it could blind you in broad daylight. It’s actually perfect as a vanity pal for those touch-ups!
This is a necessity! Smart phones are meant to be utilized to its maximum capabilities and it shouldn’t be an exception for this unit even with the affordable price. Battery life is like real life in our fast-paced, constantly connected society.
4. 1 GB RAM, 8GB internal flash memory with external microSD slot that supports up to 64 GB.
Hooray for space to store more apps and memories! It also supports a “USB On-The-Go” feature allowing you to connect a flash drive to your phone (micro USB connector required) so you can easily be productive wherever you are.
5. Dual SIM (Mini sized) – WCDMA slot for 3G data and GSM slot for 2G
Perfect for storing professional and personal contacts from different networks!
For the arsty fartsy photographer and visual artist in all of us. This feature has enough potential to capture those winning shots! Perfect for taking those Instagram-worthy photos and even those inevitable selfies!
Here’s also a little trivia I discovered, the camera can tell your gender and age, and will then apply the appropriate skin-smoothening filter when you put your settings in “simple mode!” How convenient!
7. Flashlight feature
You can’t move on with life if you can’t see where you’re going, or if you can’t find that pen you’ve been looking for in your bag in the dark! This also clearly means that cameras can be used in flash mode for capturing those fun nights out!
