The Infosonics s700 Review
Infosonics recently released their first internally-branded Android smartphone, the s700. It features dual-SIM capability and 3.5” capacitive touchscreen. In camera department, the phone is very modestly equipped with a 2Mp rear-facing camera and a VGA (0.3Mp) front-facing camera for video calls, both are capable of video recording. Unfortunately, the phone still uses Android 2.2 (Froyo), although slightly outdated; it is still a capable Android version for average users.
The phone supports Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi connectivity, also when optimized; the phone can last for 1.5 day for average usages. From a software perspective, the company offer a user-friendly custom UI and the phone is also endowed with numerous useful features such as Android Market (now Google Play), GPS navigation, native push e-mail and apps for social networking services. Users can add up to 32GB of microSD card to store large multimedia files, such as movies and music. The company also adds additional features like a 3-way gyroscope, status LED and e-compass. The phone uses 1400 mAh Li-ion battery, which is enough to power the phone for one day. There’s no word on pricing, but given the fact that the phone is modestly spec’d, it should be very affordable.
Infosonics is not a new player in the mobile industry, for many years it designs, manufactures and provides wireless devices to distributors, carriers and OEMs in Asia Pacific, Africa, Europe and Latin America. It also offers after sales supports for its proprietary products under the “verykool” brand name.
