Here’s our review of the DTC GQ6. Its the latest basic QWERTY phone from DTC. Currently priced at just Php888, the DTC GQ6 is a really cheap choice if you are looking for a QWERTY phone to own.
For the complete specs of the DTC GQ6, click here. We already got it posted. The DTC GQ6 is just a basic QWERTY phone, with the basic features. It runs on the same environment like the other non-Android smartphones from DTC. It is very easy to use and navigate, features and menus are pretty much straightforward.
It has a 1.8 inch colored display. The QWERTY keys are well placed but those with bigger thumbs might have problems with this as the DTC GQ6 is actually small sized. This phone has SMS and MMS features as well. It is dual-SIM and has internet connectivity features.
It is palm-sized, yet really compact. The rounded corners feels good in hand and the phone doesnt weighs much. The DTC GQ6 comes in 3 different colors as well; black, blue and pink. It has the basic multimedia features, it is able to play music and videos from a micro SD card that can be up to 8GB in capacity.
The DTC GQ6 has a VGA camera with no LED flash. The speaker grill is located on the back as well. There is some sort of four rubber-feel notched near at the corners of this phone. I am not sure about the purpose of this, or it is just a design element. It uses the standard 3.5mm earphones.
In terms of looks, the DTC GQ6 looks neat and at par with its predecessor, the GQTV1 – QWERTY with TV. Minimalist design, yet ergonomically housed in its plastic body.
The DTC GQ6 was originally priced at Php999, but now its being offered for just Php888. DTC also gives a free SMART Prepaid SIM for every purchase of any DTC Mobile phones unit. This is a good substitute phone if you are commuting in the metro and needs to send sms or make calls without worrying for being a victim of pickpocket or any unwanted scenarios.
