Torque Droidz Sport and Droidz Force, two sub-P3k Android phones
Pinoy mobile company, Torque, just released a couple of new dual-SIM Android phones for the budget-conscious out there.
What’s new in their Droidz series is the dual-SIM Sport and Force. Both really don’t have current-generation specs but it comes with Torque’s new Droidz Flex Technology, a software optimization that will maximize the hardware capability of the device so you can do more with less.
The Droidz Sport features a 3.5” HVGA 320×480 capacitive display with a 165ppi pixel density. It uses a 1GHz single-core Spreadtrum SC6820 processor with a Mali-400 GPU. RAM is limited at 256MB and internal storage is at 512MB with support for microSD. With those specs, this device runs only on Android 2.3.6 (Gingerbread) OS.
It also sports a 2-megapizel fixed-focus camera (no front-facing camera), 3.5mm stereo headset, FM radio and multimedia player, Micro-USB port, motion sensor and a 1500mAh Li-Ion battery. This dual-SIM budget phone retails for just Php2,599.
The Droidz Force on the other hand, is more or less a bigger version of the Sport with its 4-inch WVGA display, that’s 800 x 480 resolution for a 233 ppi pixel density. It also uses the same 1GHz single-core Spreadtrum SC6820 processor, with 512MB RAM and 512MB internal storage plus microSD support. Rest of the specs are similar: Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread, 2-megapixel fixed focus front camera, VGA rear camera, FM Radio, and a 1500mAh Li-Ion battery.
The Droidz Force is basically an entry-level 4-inch dual-SIM phone that retails for just Php2,999.
