Looking for some affordable Asian devices? You need to look no further, as this afternoon’s news is all about those. Also, Zotac’s mini-PC happens to look very familiar….
When it comes to affordable Chinese phones, DOOGEE is not staying behind in the race. The DOOGEE Mint is a low-priced smartphone with modest specs. It’s no super phone, but it should be priced very competitively.
Its 5-inch 854x480p display, quad-core Mediatek processor and 1 GB of RAM won’t impress many. Neither will the 4 GB of internal storage and 1700 mAh battery, but the device does sport a 13 MP camera.
Opinion: Regardless, this phone shouldn’t cost very much. Especially considering other Chinese smartphones out there.
The ZTE Redbull V5 is not new, but there is a new version coming out. IT may interest many of you, so we thought we should share. The ZTE Redbull V5 is to be released in a WCDMA version, with 2 GB of RAM.
The previous version only had 1 GB of RAM and featured 4G LTE connectivity. Users might sacrifice 4G LTE (not sure yet), but they will gain from WCDMA 3G support in other markets. In case you forgot, this device comes with a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm processor, a 5-inch 720p display, 13MP/5MP cameras and a 2400 mAh battery.
At 999 Yuan (about $160), it’s not a bad deal either! It should be released tomorrow, May 27th. Just in case you are interested.
Opinion: This is definitely not a bad phone for the price. I would definitely consider it if I was in the market for an affordable smartphone.
Well this one looks quite familiar. Well yes, it takes the shape of the only Google Nexus device that was killed before it was even released – the Nexus Q. Only this one happens to be a computer.
The Zbox Sphere OI520 mini-PC comes in two configurations. One of them comes with no RAM or internal storage (you have to add it), while the “Plus version” comes with 4 GB of RAM and a 500 GB hard drive. Both come with an Intel Core i5 processor and Intel 4400 integrated graphics, along with all the usual ports.
Opinion: It’s not a bad computer for 275 pounds for the basic version and 345 pounds for the “Plus” edition. It’s plenty powerful and will look good at any desk.
