Enough of the lavish and extravagant high-end smartphones that can cost a leg and an arm. It’s time to talk about the budget-friendly and easy to reach handsets, that actually has a larger market share than most flagship devices today.
Budget smartphones offer straightforward features, aimed for those people looking for a smartphone that does what it is supposed to do – to be used as a communication device.
What we’re looking at here is a no-fuss device from Cloudfone, the new Cloudfone Go Connect. Priced at only Php2,199, this device doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that you will find in most of the devices out today, but it does cover the essentials.
The Cloudfone Go Connect has a decent and type-able 4-inch WVGA TFT display, dual SIM capability, and a large (for its size) 2500mAh battery. Although it only supports 3G connectivity instead of 4G, which can be disappointing considering the limiting speed of the slightly outdated communication standard, it will still be sufficient enough to keep your Facebook Messenger, WeChat or any other messaging apps connected to the internet.

The Cloudfone Go Connect kinda reminds me of the Starmobile Play Click. Both of these devices are made to help everyone, regardless of the financial status, to gain access to a more modern means of communication.
This handset is great for those who are still dipping their toes in the smartphone world. It doesn’t cost that much, so making the switch isn’t that hard to do.
