Since mid-range smartphone market developed in such a rapid way, simplex cell phone with extremely low cost is not the only option as more and more vendor is able to cover their smartphone with high-end configuration or even uniqueness, but without losing an intimate retail price.
Take one simple example, Timmy M7 Smartphone, the one which combined premium Octa-core processor, 5.5-inch with $109.99 retail price, is pretty popular so far, but is it an optimum choice?
Like many others, Timmy M7 looks pretty lovely. Ultra-narrow bezel, high screen-to-body ratio, succinct design, big screen, thin fuselage, it has every single element to be an aesthetic device, which people cares a lot at present.
I can’t say how sophisticated or how high-tech the processing kernel has to be but at least people desire for a smooth and fast processing experience, so far, MTK6592 Octa-core is just enough. Reaction speed, efficiency, running speed and performance will be way better.
Though processing frequency has been restricted to 1.4GHz, but bear in mind it is a “thirsty engine”.
Regarding to other specs, 1GB RAM, 5.5-inch 720P display screen, 8MP prime camera appears to be typical mid-range style, just prim and proper. Anyway, it is an overkill for a company that isn’t quite known for premium products.
As for retail price, Timmy M7 for $109.99 can’t be called as superb cost-effective but at least it is affordable, particularly as a spare phone or device for students, elders. Will it be an ideal option? Only upcoming Timmy M7 Review can tell the truth.
