For today’s unboxing and first impressions, we have the O+Presto 700 LTE.
Over the past couple of years, O+ has become more and more popular in the Philippines. From appearing on noontime shows and partnering with celebrity endorsers, O+ has been gaining ground. But, this time it has partnered with Smart to give its users an LTE smartphone without breaking their wallets.
Just from looking at it the phone has a simple elegance. The silver casing looks classy and the black body looks sophisticated. The HOME, OPTION and BACK buttons are at the bottom of the screen shown as simple shapes that add to the units classy look.
The main attraction for this phone is that it is an LTE phone at a low price. Basically that means that this phone can reach 100mb/ps and even up to 1gb/ps when at mobile hotspots. With most smartphones only able to access 3g connectivity it really sets this unit apart.
The unit itself has a 5-inch capacitive LCD screen boasts of an 854×480 resolution that makes looking at the phone easy on the eyes. It has a 1.3 GHz quad core processor and 512MB of RAM, which is normal for the price point.
Another key feature of the O+ Presto 700 LTE Smartphone is that it runs on the Android 6 Marshmallow. At first glance it may look like a refined version of the Android Lollipop but, Marshmallow has a smoother user interface. Not only that but it also has a revamped vertical app drawer.
Back to the physical feature of the phone, it has 2 sim card slots one for a micro and normal sim card. It has 8GB of internal storage which is normal for phones at this level. What is good though is that with a micro SD card it can go up to 32GB.
For cameras it has an 8 Megapixel rear camera with both auto focus and flash. For the more selfie inclined people, the phone also has a 5 Megapixel front camera. It is a little above average for an LTE phone at this price range.
Overall first impression is a hit and miss. I can not deny that it looks good especially for its price but, the RAM and software feels a little mismatched. For our final verdict on the O+ Presto 700 LTE Smartphone tune in for full review coming soon.
