What’s in the Box?

DTC Mobile Ego

The usual DTC stuff was included in the box. It includes the DTC Ego, charger, earphones, 2 QWERTY keyboard covers, USB cable, manuals, and warranty card.



The DTC EGO looks admirably cute and its compact body is a pleasure to hold. It’s not the thinnest QWERTY phone out there but the build is just right for a hand that’s on average size. In fact, we even compared it to the cuteness of Nokia Asha 200 because we’re impressed of its looks. Take a look at the photo below.

In terms of thickness, it is just slightly thicker but it will go unnoticeable if we will take a thorough look at it. Another good thing about this DTC GQTV1 is that it comes with 2 colorful QWERTY keyboard covers which are useful if you want to give your phone a fresh look. Actually, I love the red one so I replaced the original one with it.

Although the DTC EGO lacks the features of a smartphone, it never failed to entertain us in its own way. The mobile TV works very well and it can give a solid rendering of the show if there’s sufficient signal in the area. However, since the antenna for the TV was quite short, it is having a hard time pulling out decent shows in low signal areas.

Playing music is okay and loud enough to be enjoyable. I find the display a bit of a downer because it is relatively small to watch videos and television shows.

The dual-sim handles two networks smoothly and it didn’t have any problems in managing two them. Messages are received just in time and call quality is decent.



The DTC EGO GQTV1 is a very decent mobile phone if you’re just looking for the basic phone functions. The mobile TV feature is a plus but it is only usable when there is a great signal within the area. Overall, a pretty solid phone for a price of only Php1,899.

This phone will be included in our giveaway next week along with 3 other DTC phones. Stay connected to NoypiGeeks.com through our Facebook and Twitter pages to be notified immediately.
