Cloudfone Thrill 500x and Thrill 500x+ Spotify Edition Smartphones Come with Free Headphones and Headsets!

Cloudfone Thrill 500x

If you’re looking for a good deal on your next smartphone, it’s hard to beat the new Cloudfone Spotify Edition smartphones. The Cloudfone Thrill 500x and Thrill 500x+ are pretty decently specced for the price, but they also come bundled with free Spotify headphones AND headsets so you don’t have to buy your own. It’s a pretty sweet deal that’s a result of Cloudfone having partnered with Spotify so the popular music-streaming service comes pre-installed on both phones.

Of course, just because you’re getting free gear doesn’t mean the phone isn’t all that good. Both phones come with an adequate 5 inch HD screen and are powered by a 1.7GHz octa-core processor. The Cloudfone Thrill 500x comes equipped with 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage. Opting for the Thrill 500x+ will give you 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage instead. Unfortunately, you’re not getting Android Lollipop or 4G LTE. Instead, it’s stuck with KitKat 4.4 out of the box. You do however get a 4,000mAh battery, which should ideally last you at least a couple of days before needing to be charged again.

Personally, I’d gladly spend the Php6,999 for the extra RAM and storage that the Cloudfone Thrill 500x+ offers. It’s only Php1k more expensive than the Thrill 500x and you end up doubling your RAM and storage. Then again, a music-oriented phone doesn’t really need that much RAM and storage assuming all you’ll be doing is playing your favorite Spotify tracks. So maybe the Php5,999 price tag of the Thrill 500x will still make sense for most people. So which one would you guys go with?

    i’m disappointed with the Cloudfone unit I bought, can’t remember the model, but it cost P1.7K. The Data Usage function keeps turning itself on even after disabling it and other associated settings. I even installed apps that turn it off, but somehow it enables it without notification. I suspect some kind of conspiracy going on – as my precious load is gobbled up in minutes. Finally, I created a dummy APN and that seemed to work, alas, it created other problems in messaging and calls. I will never buy Cloudfone again.
