That Afro Guy
So, about a week and a half ago, I took the plunge and decided to buy a cheap china made mobile device (Star S2000), to tinker around with. (Not to replace my GS4 mind you ) And I must say this: I am more than pleasantly surprised by the functionality of the device! It runs on a quad core MTK6589 processor, overclocked to around 1.5 Ghz, has 1 Gb of RAM, and runs on android 4.2.1. Dual SIM phone, so internationally, a good buy. It has a 5 inch FWVGA screen, with very admirable screen sharpness and quality (yes, I know, not the best, but pretty dang good. Whites and blacks are almost on par with my GS4) I didn't trust the Antutu benchmark scores for the device, (the application came pre installed, and was installed in the SYSTEM directory? Obviously someone tinkered around with the results!) It claimed to get 13,500, so I rooted, uninstalled it, and re-installed the one from the play store, and get consistent 11,750 scores. The phone's a quad band, that runs on the 850/900/1800/1900 GSM frequencies, and supports the 850/1900 WCDMA (3G) frequencies. It functions on ATT's 3G network quite well, I must say! I get about a full day on moderate usage (maaaaybe around 12 hours or so). Overall, for a 160 dollar phone, this thing kicks behind!
