Smartphone maker CloudFone has a new handset to tease its budget-conscious fans. The successor to the Thrill 430x, the new Thrill 530QX features a bigger screen, more battery life, and better camera specs.

Even though priced a couple of thousands more than its predecessor, the Thrill 530QX compensates by offering better hardware. Its rear shooter, for instance, now comes with 12MP resolution and is paired with a respectable 5MP front shooter. With the Thrill 530QX’s whopping 4500mAh battery capacity, CloudFone claims that “your life no longer ends when your battery does.” Though the resulting form factor is big and thick, an all-day battery life is hard to not appreciate. Its 4GB internal storage, while fairly disappointing, can be expanded by up to 32GB with a microSD card, making sure that users don’t run out of free space as they capture those precious moments in life.

Intuitive software features further solidify the Thrill 530QX’s hardware components. When taking photos, users can make use of smile detection, high-dynamic-range (HDR) mode, picture grid, and more. There’s even what CloudFone calls a face-beautifying feature. Motion controls that were first popularized by Samsung’s high-profile set of Galaxy smartphones are also found in the Thrill 530QX, including flip-to-mute, pop-up play, and intelligent answer, which allows answering phone calls by simply shaking or moving the phone to the ear.

Proclaiming itself as an “Android Expert,” CloudFone seems to have fulfilled its aim to provide an “Android for All” through the Thrill 530QX. Its set of hardware and software features does match those of high-end smartphones from more popular brands. Had there been LTE connectivity included as a prominent feature, CloudFone’s offering would be even more compelling for consumers. Nevertheless, the Thrill 530QX still touts high data speeds of HSDPA+ 21 and HSUPA 5.76.

Anyone who happened to be at Fort Bonifacio Global City last Saturday actually got the chance to try out the device firsthand. For those who missed it, the Thrill 530QX is scheduled for retail release by October 1st, with a price tag of just Php9,999.

  2. User ako ng Cloudfone Thrill 530qx. almost a year ko na sya gamit and for the record never pa sya ng loko. No hung ups anymore! Mabilis din coz it’s using 1gb ram. 4gb lng ang rom that’s why i need to buy mmc for my movies and music. And coz Im a movie addict naeenjoy ko manood ng movies sa phone kasi malaki dn ung screen (5.3inch). Sakto lng ung volume level, and the really good thing in this phone is the battery life, monster talga. Pg standby lng onting txt, calls, surfing, ibattery life can lasts upto 3-4days. Pg mainternet ka via wifi 2-3, via 3g 2days. Never ko pa na try na malowbat sya using 1day. Kahit nood dto nood dun, internet and sounds and khit ano gawin ko 2days talga bfore sya malowbat. And for the appearance of the phone, astig din, kasi di sya common, matt ung cover sa likod kaya kahit malaki ung phone, handy pa din. Two thumbs up ako sa phone na toh. Good one CloudFone!
