CDR King Intros 4 Inch Android Fastphone for Php2,580

If you thought you knew who all the local players were in the locally-branded smartphone wars, CDR King is looking to mix things up by introducing a couple of their own. JP Garmay, an admin of a Flare user group that I frequent on Facebook, pointed out an interesting new phone that CDR King had posted on their website, and no, it wasn’t one of those dumbphones they had been forcing down our throats lately. It was a sleek-looking new Android Fastphone that appeared to be a dead-ringer for the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini.

Some of you might be familiar with how vague CDR King can be when it comes to product spec lists. They might show a really long list of hardware and software features, but in reality, they tend to shroud or hide the really important specs. For example, they might show that this particular CDR King Android Fastphone has a 4 inch WVGA screen, but there’s nothing in the way of actual RAM. There’s a part in the specs that says the internal memory is rated at 1Gb+256Mb though, but what the heck is that supposed to mean?

Anyway, the reason that this phone drew my attention is that when JP Garmay pointed this out to a bunch of us on that Flare group, the specs had originally and specifically specified that it had 2Gb of RAM. For a phone that only retails for Php2,580, that certainly drew our attention. Of course after awhile, the original link for that 4 inch Android Fastphone that JP had posted went dead, and a new one came up in its stead (refer to the source link below), and the new one didn’t make any mention of RAM except for that 1Gb+256Mb part.

About The Author

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
