my|phone A848i (my late) review



School days are back, and mostly students needs to have a companion and a cool gadget to lessen their loads in their bag, and it helps for their study needs.

Since we have a student that are big fans of Android, some of them are student Android developers reading on this blog, we round up some cool but affordable budget-friendly phone that you may afford to ask with you mom and dad to buy, or better, buy from your pocket. We also sorted out the Android OS Version they are running, and either this is a smartphone or a tablet

We get to hands-on with this last week since my friend gives me a chance to hands-on this phone, although it is late since it was released on the market last February, it is no excuse to appreciate this 4-inch Android smartphone from my|phone.

If you are a student with a that wants to be a companion on your school needs, and a not-so hardcore user, then this is for you. 

Playing of an HD game with this device is not a problem, because it runs a MediaTek  Dual-core MT6577 1GHz processor with PowerVR SGX531 GPU. It also has 512 MB ram for multi-tasking, 4GB internal memory if you are not planning to buy a SD card yet because of tight budget. But your charger might be your new best friend because of its 1,600mAh battery

You can never be left behind with your friend's status updates because it has a WiFi, and when WiFi is not available, it is not a problem, you can use a 3G internet connection. 


You can take a pictures with its 5 mega pixels autofocus camera with LED flash when the light is dark, it is also good in making your video project because of its  720p HD video recording, and you can have a video calls using Skype and Google+ Hangout of its VGA (0.3MP) front camera.

Sharing all of your stuff from your phone thru Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP and EDR. You can notify from your phone when you received a new notifications because of its LED notification on the upper right side of the phone.

When you lost, and you got into the place you didn't know, you can open your Maps and turn on your GPS because it has GPS with A-GPS support that can track where are you.

It is not heavy in your pocket, because it only weights upto 125g (weight) and it measures 127.5 x 65.5 x 10.3mm (dimension);
