To help Filipinos who are still using a basic phone to finally migrate
to their first ever smartphone, CloudFone quietly released the CloudFone
, a large screen Android Marshmallow device with Spotify
and an affordable price tag.
Last year, CloudFone - in partnership with Spotify - released the
, which did fairly well in the market -- despite
having a rather small 4-inch display.
This time around, the Pinoy handset maker opted to release a follow-up
with more screen real estate as the "CloudFone Go SP" has a 5-inch
display, which should deliver a better viewing experience.
What I like about this release is it comes bundled with Spotify
headphones (with in-ear silicone buds) at almost the same price point
as its predecessor.
2,299, Filipinos on a tight budget can now have their first
smartphone for instant access to the most popular social media networks
and for better music listening experience with the pre-installed
Spotify app on the go -- hence the name "GO SP"
While the CloudFone Go SP is far from a gaming device with monster
specs, it is definitely more than sufficient for browsing and updating
Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You can also use it for browsing the
web, watching YouTube, making calls and sending texts, as well as
running non-graphic intensive apps.
Technical specs include Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, 1.3 Quad Core
Processor, 512 MB RAM with 8GB of ROM, 5" FWVGA Touchscreen, 5MP rear
camera with flash, VGA (TBC) front camera for selfies, 3G and WiFi for
connectivity plus free Spotify Earphones.
As for the design, the phone has an all glass front, flaunts rounded
edges, and comes with interchangeable polycarbonate back covers (I
heard there's an extra shell included in the package).
Although CloudFone has yet to fomally announce this model, CloudFone Go
SP has already been spotted at select CloudFone stores, kiosks, and
partner dealers nationwide. If you're looking for a cool
Android handset in this price bracket, you might want to
