The Cloudfone Thrill 430x is the one with the highest price tag on the new Cloudfone Android series. It is currently priced at Php7,777. Its main highlight is its 4160mAh battery rating capacity, it is promised to be able to last with 3-days of regular usage.
When I spotted a Cloudfone booth, this is the only device I cared to hands-on. So I am here to share it with you, giving the specs review, with a couple of photos and a video too. Read on.
Short, the Cloudfone Thrill 430x is a 4.3-inch Android 4.0 ICS device, with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. The 4160mAh battery rating capacity is its main selling point, plus the good screen and really impressive hardware.
Cloudfone Thrill 430x Specs Review
The Cloudfone Thrill 430x is equipped with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8225 processor, clocked at 1.2GHz. It is a bit different with the other China-origin Android smartphones we are normally seeing, those with MediaTek chipset which are cheaper in chipset cost. No doubt with the performance of this chipset, it is a new SoC which was just announced mid-2012. However new, expect a really good performance with this, in terms of speed and processing.
It runs on Android 4.0 ICS out of the box. The UI is not tweaked; I just noticed 2 icons of Cloudfone-specific apps (one is Cloud-Store). I don’t think that this phone will have problems on playing HD games, or even HQ multimedia files.
It sports a 4.3-inch qHD screen, with 960×540 256ppi Sharp ASG IPS display. It is the same display on my ZOPO ZP100 and I can say that these screen parameters is really awesome. You’ll get very clear display, no evidence of seeing pixels by your bare eyes, at any viewing angle as well.
The Cloudfone Thrill 430x is packed with 768MB of RAM, pretty much unusual amount we can get with Android phones as per we are just used with 512MB, 1GB, or 2GB of RAM. Still, knowing that this is a bump up of the normal 512MB we can have for an ICS device. Thumbs up for this as you can do more of your multi-tasking, and no problems with running any apps or games.
Its ROM is set on the usual 4GB capacity which we can expect 2.xGB of usable internal storage memory. Usage of SD card to expand your storage space is supported, and is up to 32GB.
The main camera on the Thrill 430x is an 8.0 megapixels snapper, with LED flash and some really cool camera settings and features. It supports 720p of recording, front-snapper is a 0.3MP which is expected to support video calls.
The Cloudfone 430x is a dual-SIM and 3G-capable Android phone. It has the other features of an mid-to-high end Android smartphone. Sensors and other connectivity options are present as well. It’s really the same as Innos D9 as they say.
What makes the Cloudfone 430x stands out from the other local Android phones out there is its 4160mAh battery rating capacity. However, one might find its 14.2mm thickness unattractive. At first, I felt the same impression on the Thrill 430x but I just realized that it doesn’t matter as long as I have that battery juice. I am a heavy user; I spend most of the time being connected on the internet, playing games while killing time, casual music playback, and those SMS and call usages daily.
With the Cloudfone 430x, I am seeing that battery won’t be a problem anymore. No more caring to save for your battery juice or even bring yourself an extra battery pack in your pocket. However, I am hearing about the problems with the default Cloudfone 430x charger, and the unavailability of extra battery which you are supposedly able to buy. I think if Cloudfone might be able to work out on these user-generated issues, they will sell big time on our local market.
We are trying to get in touch with Cloudfone, will let you know once we got a unit and so we can take that 4160mAh battery and other stuff to test on this Cloudfone Thrill 430x and come up with a better, in-depth review.
