One of the finest and more affordable smartphones running on Android Jelly Bean has just gotten better. With the internal storage now double in capacity, the O+ 8.52 smartphone has become a more practical choice for the budget-conscious. It’s price remains at the sweet spot of just Php5,995.
When we wrote our first impressions as we unboxed it from its package, the O+ 8.52 only had 4GB internal storage. Now, the US-based company behind the device gave it a welcome revision, doubling the amount of data that users can put inside the device. There’s still the bundled 8GB microSD external storage from SanDisk should the internal storage don’t suffice.
Other specs remain the same. Running the software side of things is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, powered by a 1GHz dual-core MediaTek processor. The 5-megapixel rear-facing camera (with autofocus and LED flash) is paired with a VGA front-facing camera. The 4-inch capacitive LCD touchscreen is still enhanced by in-plane switching (IPS) technology for wide-angle viewing. For an in-depth coverage of the O+ 8.52, check out our full review. We’ve given it high praise in design, software performance, and connectivity features.
The revised O 8.52+ is expected to be available this coming Christmas season.
