Cloudfone Thrill 400qx: The Best of Both Worlds

Slim and Sleek? Proud and Powerful? Which one would you choose? Fortunately, Cloudfone is giving you both with its latest phone, the Cloudfone Thrill 400qx, an Android device that has two interchangeable batteries. So what's with this interchangeable battery thing that makes it extra special? We'll find out after the jump. Specs also coming up.

Cloudfone Thrill 400qx specs:
4" IPS OGS WVGA touchscreen
800 x 480 pixels resolution, 233 ppi
scratch-resistant screen
1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8225Q processor
Adreno 203
4GB internal memory
expandable up to 32GB with a microSD card
8MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash
VGA front camera
Bluetooth/WiFi/3G connectivity
accelerometer, gyroscope, and proximity sensor
dual-sim, dual standby
Android 4.1 Jellybean
3000 mAh/ 1450 mAh interchangeable batteries
PRICE: PHP 5,999 (SRP)

A first in the mobile industry,  the Cloudfone Thrill 400qx's interchangeable battery is truly a game changer. If you like a slim phone that would fit your pockets easily, then the 1450 mAh would suit you.  Otherwise, if you opt for a longer battery life instead, the 3000 mAh battery is the way to go. Or if you really just want an extra battery in case the other one's completely drained, Thrill 400qx won't let you down. One more thing, there's a back cover for each of the two batteries.

On the other hand, the specs are also great, considering the price. You get a nice 4" scratch-resistant screen with IPS technology for better viewing angles, along with OGS (one glass solution) which removes the space between the display and your touchscreen so that it feels like you're really touching what's on the screen; and a powerful 1.2GHz quad-core processor for a superb performance. What's just disappoints here is the 512MB RAM, which will limit your multitasking capabilities. But for the price, I guess this is where Cloudfone made the cut.

Meanwhile, on the camera side, the 8MP camera complemented with a LED flash should deliver nice shots. There's also a VGA front camera for your video chats.

The Cloudfone Thrill 400qx runs on 4.1 Jellybean which is still good (better if it's on 4.2). There's also the usual dual-sim, dual standby feature which will save you from the hassle of SIM switching. 

Retailing for PHP 5,999, the Cloudfone Thrill 400qx is an affordable yet outstanding choice for consumers who are looking for a phone that can suit their style anytime, be it slim and sleek, or proud and powerful.

Colors are black and white.

Here's the press release:

CloudFone Thrill 400qx:
2013 has been a year full of surprises and innovation in the tech scene. We are undeniably at an amazing time when it comes to smartphones here in the Philippines. Devices with amazing specs that continually improve like having quad core processors, Android Jelly Bean OS, and rear cameras above 5 MP are quickly becoming the norm.

However, we often hear people say, “you can’t have it all.” Whether it’s a certain feature, the size, or the price - there are bound to be some compromises. Wanting a big display will inevitably add size to the entire device; wanting an affordable phone would also mean giving up some specs and features; wanting a thinner phone often means letting go of having a big battery capacity and wanting a phone like that will mean having to live with the bulk it entails. Knowingly or not, we sacrifice and forego some things in one way or another.

With the coming of the CloudFone Thrill 400qx, this time, you have a choice.

CloudFone, the makers of the groundbreaking CloudFone Thrill 430x, takes it one step further yet again by bringing in another amazing innovation. The CloudFone Thrill 400qx packs a 4” IPS OGS WVGA scratch resistant screen, Android Jelly Bean software, 1.2 GHz Quad-core Snapdragon processor, 8 MP rear camera with auto focus and LED flash, front camera, and just like all CloudFone devices, it has provisions for dual SIM and expandable memory up to 32 GB.

These specs might sound like a standard by now, but the CloudFone Thrill 400qx is not just a 4-inch quad-core smartphone; it’s the phone you choose it to be. With its interchangeable batteries and back covers, you can go from 130g to 170g and back, giving you the choice to either have a slim and sleek device or a bigger and more powerful counterpart. Having a 3000 mAh battery makes it a first for a 4-inch to be this big - not just indicative of its size, but the power it can hold - along with a 1450 mAh battery also keeps you going throughout your day.
With the 3000 mAh battery, this quad-core phone will provide you with ample power to help you tackle your daily tasks with no worries. This device will also provide you with the high performance you’d need to execute them smoothly. Whether it’s going through your e-mails, staying on top of your schedule, or being updated with the latest happenings on your social networking sites, you got a phone that keeps up with you and your lifestyle. However, the big capacity battery admittedly adds heft to the device; that’s where the option for interchangeable batteries and back cover comes in.

With the 1450 mAh battery, you automatically enhance your image with a slimmer profile on a 4” phone, making it look more elegant and a truly beautiful device. As it fits perfectly in your hands, girls no longer need to worry about their dresses not having pockets while men no longer need to worry about bulking up their pockets further along with their wallet, keys, and other items. Thanks to its minimal weight, this sleek phone becomes easier to carry around, making sure you look stylish and trendy all day.

This never-before-seen innovation completely changes the landscape of the smartphone market. At Php 5,999, you can get the experience of having a long battery life like the rest of the powerful smartphones that CloudFone offers along with a reserve battery that makes it last even longer. The interchangeable batteries and back covers create provisions for either a 3000 mAh or a 1450 mAh batter - providing you with the power you need and a choice for the kind of lifestyle you choose to lead.

Rest assured, the CloudFone Thrill 400qx will help get you through your day... and more.
