Torque Droidz Atom does its best Galaxy S3 Mini impression

Have you ever wanted to own a phone with a premium look but don’t have the budget to actually get one? Torque might have an answer for that in the form of their upcoming Droidz Atom which is set to be available next month.

Torque Droidz Atom

Earlier we personally saw this Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini look-a-like. Just take a look at it and tell me if it reminds you of the smaller S3.

Curved corners check. White glossy finish with chrome trimmings check. That familiar looking home button at the bottom check. This is still a prototype unit so the Torque brand was stickered on top. And no there’s no Samsung logo underneath it. Hehehe.

The back also has that glossy plastic finish enclosing the 5-megapixel camera and this is where its physical similarity with the S3 Mini ends.

The Torque Droidz Atom is a dual-core, dual-SIM phone with a 4-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen display. It runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, has a 512MB RAM and 4GB internal storage. Basically, it’s a step inferior than the Galaxy S3 Mini which is not so bad at all.

As for the price, Torque hinted that it will go for just under Php4,000 when it will be officially available on January 2013. Yes, they’re a bit down that they couldn’t have it ready before Christmas but it could give the Cherry Mobile Flare a run for its money.

    I bought this unit last 2 weeks ago. I enjoyed it so much coz it’s affordable and I love the functionality/features!

  7. LifeLineMD says:

    This phone is fine for its price range. The only problems I have are 3G (can browse initially but cant do anything else), horrid battery life, and reset your settings every time you reboot the phone. The worse case is the horrid after sales support and the very unaccommodating staffs (particularly SM Manila kiosk). But for a backup secondary android phone this is ok.

  8. available narin ba to sa masndaluyong .. pls reply asap t.y

    Good day po sa inyong lahat na nakabili na ng Torque Droidz Atom.
    May dalawang bagay lang po akong itatanong at ikukunsulta regarding this unit.Mabilis kasi maubos ang battery charge ng unit ko at ang hirap i-on ng Wi-Fi/Bluetooth nya.Sinubukan ko na lahat regarding sa Battery life nya pero no use kasi madali talaga maubos ang charge nya.Ganun din sa pag turn on ng Wi-Fi/Bluetooth nya,nagpunta na ako sa settings at ginamit ko na rin ang mga icons nila sa drop down window pero di pa rin mag on.Kung meron po nakaka-alam ng iba pang paraan ay paki share naman.Maliban po sa mga ito ay wala na akong ibang makita na negative sa unit na ito,money well spent po ang unit na ito.Salamat po in-advance sa response nyo.

    • Bumili ako neto, sa stock medyo di ako nakontento, kaya pagkatapos ng 7days replacement period ni root ko siya, tapos install ng supercharger…

      Marami kang puwedeng gawin, kaso do it at your own risk…

      Oks tong phone na to, di ka mapapahiya sa mabibigat na games…
