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.

  1. what if i bought the old 8.52? is there any compensation to that? i mean, if they had upgraded something they should have change at least it number, maybe into 8.53.

    1. I really don’t know where the O+ USA headquarters is located. Please try to explain to the mods of the site, thank you.

      1. walang kang impormasyon makikita sa main site, kung nasaan man ang mga opisina nila. tapos mukhang hindi inuupdate ang panget pa pagkagawa. try nyo mag whois sa domain ng oplususa_com, naka private lahat ng impormasyon. sa pagkaalam ko dahil ako ay nagtratrabaho sa webhosting, dapat naka public yan pag business ang gamit ng website. tingnan mo yung ibang local brand, cherry, myphone, starmobile, etc. naka public ang info nila. sobrang halatang me tinatago ang plus

          1. i think its claiming their company is a “US based brand” when there is no proof of this otherwise. they have decent products but the question is are they using the claim that they are a US company to mark up or balloon the prices of rebranded phones from china? parang lenovo o alcatel maka presyo itong o plus kase. tapos na buking na rebranded lang pala tulad ng PRESTIGIO na brand sa europe. tapos me nababasa pa ako na o plus is claiming that they manufacture their own phones pero wala namang ebidensiya kung nasaan yung planta nila o anuman. parang dun naguugat yung suspicion ng tao.
