If you’re one of the many who seems to be in a constant battle to balance their budget but wants to own a decent Smartphone, Torque’s new device might just be the right one for you.
We live in a country where local products thrive through every crevice: from apparel to up-to-date handhelds and gadgets, the once feeble “tatak Pinoy” is now making waves not only in the country, but all over the globe.
Torque Mobile is among the handful of names that are stepping in to the field where giants like Samsung, Apple and LG loom and dominate. Nonetheless, they have established their own niche, audience and even enticed several celebrities to endorse their products. And for what it’s worth, they are instrumental in the rise of sales numbers and ROI, among others.
Heeding the call for a wallet-friendly Smartphone is the Torque Droidz Slate HD. For those who are new to Torque, the term “Droidz” has been associated to the local player where almost half, if not all of their catalogue comes with the prefix. As its name suggests, the Slate HD comes with a 5.5inch High Definition IPS touch screen display with 720p resolution (267ppi) and thus making it a phablet. This too would appeal to the majority who watches hi-res videos and games, giving them a wider real estate to enjoy.
Moreover, Torques new member will core on a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage – borderline innards capable of storing a bevy of files and powering the Slate HD on a normal level. There’s also a microSD card slot for a maximum of 32GB memory expansion, a 13megapixel rear camera with Autofocus and LED flash, a 5megapixel front snapper, Android 4.4 KitKat, Dual-SIM/Dual Standby mode, micro USB 2.0 and the usual connectivity like WiFi, 3G, Bluetooth and GPS.
Indeed, the Torque Slate HD is “bigger and better”, but the company should have opted to add more RAM and battery juice since it only comes with a 2,000mAh pack.
The Toque Slate HD comes with a sticker price of P5,499.00 – a big steal if you ask the experts on performance/looks to price ratio.
