If you’re on a tight budget but want a smartphone that can perform as good as other quad-core phones from other local brands, you might want to take a look at the CloudFone Excite 450q which is currently the most affordable quad-core phone in the market at just P4,999.
The CloudFone Excite 450q sports a 4.5″ IPS FWVGA display, a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad-core chip, last year’s 512MB RAM and 4GB ROM configuration, 5-megapixel rear camera, and is dual-SIM and runs on Android Jelly Bean.
What’s interesting to point out here is the quad-core chip. The Snapdragon MSM8225Q is Qualcomm’s latest budget quad-core chip and is being used in phones like the Starmobile Icon (P7,990) and the CloudFone Thrill 450q (P8,999). The chip is also very similar to the MSM8625Q (only difference is the radio technologies supported) which is being used by the Samsung Galaxy Win Duos and Cherry Mobile Skyfire 2.0.
The 4.5-inch display on the Excite 450q has a resolution of 854 x 480 which gives it a decent 218ppi pixel density.
Perhaps the downside of this phone and the big difference from other current quad-core phones in the market would be the 512MB RAM. But if you won’t be gaming much or install a lot of resource-heavy apps, this phone should suit you just fine.
What you’ll get with the CloudFone Excite 450q is a quad-core dual-SIM phone which you can use for your basic Android smartphone needs without having to spend too much. It won’t dazzle you with its looks and features but it can get the job done. This phone is expected to hit stores this coming weekend.
