If I told you that you can buy a quad core Android phone for just five thousand bucks, would you believe me? Well, you’re going to have to because that’s exactly what the Cloudfone Excite 450Q is going for. At an SRP of Php4,999, you’re getting a 4.5″ FWVGA IPS screen, a 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8225Q chipset, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. It even runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box!

The specs aren’t exactly spectacular and to be honest, that 512MB RAM is a bit of a bummer, but at that price, who the heck is complaining. If the Cherry Mobile Flare brought dual core phones to the masses, the same can definitely be said about the Cloudfone Excite 450Q. You’re getting the same specs as some quad-core phones from local brands that cost one or two thousand pesos more!

So what else are you getting for the money? It’s a dual SIM phone with 3G/HSDPA connectivity (only SIM1 supports 3G, SIM2 is limited to 2G). There’s the usual WiFi b/g/n with hotspot functionality to go along with Bluetooth 3.0. There’s also a serviceable 5mp primary camera and VGA front camera. All of that is powered by a 1,700mAh battery.

At Php4,999, you can’t go wrong with the Cloudfone Excite 450Q. Limited RAM and battery aside, there is nothing else in the market that can give you that kind of value at that price. It’s definitely a great phone for techies on a budget and is affordable enough so that even Android newbies can jump in.

    tinalo na nya sa price yun am nitro 450qd

    naku, kahit quadcore yan, mukhang mabagal pa rin, ang baba ng ram nia, 512 lang

  • kennz

    may paraan pa para maka get over sa RAM. its called swap.

  • iANDROID08

    isa pa to. 512Mb ram for a quady no no… xD as per the price well its considerable. also FYI Ram swap/Linux Swap works only if you’re device has an unlocked or custom kernel in or the SOC by default supports swap. as per i know not all the memory puts in to swap still there will be a need for the primary ram itself. and swap only works as back-up memory
