SKK Mobile Platinum Advance: Affordable Octa-core Gaming Phablet

Platinum Lite Advance

Gaming phablets should come at a premium, but the SKK Mobile Platinum Advance is equipped with gaming-friendly specs at a price that won’t break your budget. It features a large 5.5 inch qHD IPS screen, 1.7GHz MT6592 octa-core processor, and 16GB of storage. All for a wallet-friendly Php8,999 price tag.

So why is it great for games when the screen’s resolution is sub-par for its size? Well, the lower the resolution, the lighter the load on the SoC, particularly on the GPU. That means the SKK Mobile Platinum Advance can really push frame rates for a smoother overall gaming experience. Of course, games would look better on at least an HD screen, but if it’s smoother frame rates you’re looking for, the qHD display is an acceptable compromise.

In addition, you’re getting a 13mp autofocus camera, 5mp front camera, a 2,800mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. That 2,800mAh battery is a little worrisome considering the size of the screen and the fact that the rest of the specs are great for gaming. However, the low resolution should hopefully help keep the load low on the battery.
