  1. I have cloudfone 430x,Ok battery nya, malinaw camera, responsive, played 3d games on it without problem because dualcore and high ram, for more info sa cloudfone and still not convince, read tipidcp here http://www.tipidcp.com/viewtopic.php?tid=33745

  2. wala namang tv...hahaha

  3. kh8 cp pnag.aawayan i.bag nyo nlan system unit ng pc nyo kung gsto nyo nang mas mganda nd faster specs gm8 kau smartbro pang txt and net. bitaw stap nyo na away nyo yung ng.comment pla jan about titan. ano yung better unit between astra nd titan ? thanks guys.

  4. When did I say, same price point? haha. .You didnt read my full comment right? ugh! And why would I buy S3/OneX/XperiaS kung may mas cheaper naman? Kumusta naman yung battery ng S3, OneX and XperiaS compared to Cloudfone? LOL. .Oh, come on! I dont need quad-cores, even qualcomm says,

    "That's really based on the workloads of 95 percent of users, even for a lot of the power users, the dual-core is good enough, not even good enough but more than good enough."

    Name me apps that a S4 dual core cant run? hahaha. .If you're the kind of person that wants a super PC-like smartphone and brandee type guy, we're not the same! I prefer to be a wise buyer type. ;)

  5. lol..s4 pro dual core, adreno 225? with same price point? you're dreaming right?

    kung yun manan ang gusto mo, bettery buy s3/onex/or xperia S!

  6. Ok na sana ang 430x kaya lang ang kapal! Modern smartphones ngayon, panipis ng panipis pero anyare sa 430x? I would rather choose manipis kahit medyo bawasan pa yung battery size. About naman sa UI ng dalawa, ok na rin kasi mas prefer ko yung looks ng stock UI ng android kaysa UI nung CM flare. And mas magaan sa RAM ang stock UI kaysa i-modify.

    Cloudfone if you can hear/read this, here's my request:
    Screen: 4.3 inch, 1280x720 (HD), ~ 300 ppi
    Dimension: 126x65x11 mm
    Processor: 1.4GHz dual-core S4 Pro ---- GPU: Adreno 225
    RAM: 1GB ---- Internal Storage: 8GB
    OS: Android Jelly Bean v4.1
    Front Cam: 1.3MP
    Weight: 140~145g
    BATTERY: 3,400 mAh (With this battery size, it should last 3 days na moderate use. Ang consequence kasi sa monster battery, baka makalimutan kung saan nilagay ang charger dahil 1 week ng hindi nagagamit or magtatampo ang charger kasi once a week lang gamitin or magkaka-alikabok ang charger!)

    Yung hindi namension sa specs, wag ng i-change. Nga pala, sana palitan nyo rin ang design ng phone, make the edges slight sharp (parang Xperia Phones) para ma-iba naman. Dahil kasi sa kasikatan ng Samsung dito sa Pinas dami ng gumaya sa design nila. Yung myPhone naman, iPhone ang inspiration sa design, rectangle with round edges. LOL! Kung pwede pang panipisin ang phone, around 9 or 10mm without lowering the battery size, mas maganda. That's my ideal smartphone specs. Pag may ganyan kahit 10k-12k pa ang price, I'll guarantee you Cloudfone, BIBILHIN KO PA RIN!!! CHEERS!

  7. 7-8 hours.....anu po un dretso gamit.....1st choice ko kc tlga astra.....kaso lumabas ung cloudfone kya mejo nalito me.....hehe...tnx 4 d info

  8. grabe naman ang straight na usage...pero parang ganun na din.. pero i always play games and i charge my phone 3am then finish 6am, then ma low bat na sya mga 6pm(not totally dead, 14% pa ang battery)! kasi parati ako nag lalaro ng games, i off the wifi/data if im not using it...so yung average talaga is 6-8hrs!

    di ka naman siguro agrabyado sa 7k mo... mas lugi ka pa kung ang bibilhin mo samsung phones! with their annoying touchwiz UI! mas maganda ang stock android UI! and 6-8hrs is the new normal naman! tapos 1500mAh lng...kasi compare to what samsung or LG can offer with same specs the best talaga ang astra, yung galaxy s duos and lg l5 dual nila, same 1500mAh battery, 512 RAM, 4GB ROM pero both single core cortex a5 1ghz processor! tapos price point is 10k above(s duos is 14k, l5 dual11k)! better buy a spare battery... hinahanap ko pa ang kapareha nyang battery..either nokia or samsung lng yan....

  9. As I said sa 1st comment ko, If those specs (I've listed) are implemented on the next Cloudfone, kahit 10k to 12k pa ang price, bibilihin ko parin! Kawawa naman ang Cloudfone kung tataasan nila ang specs ng phone pero yung price (@ 7777) hindi tataas.

    Yeah, support does suck! Kaya nga Jelly Bean expected ko na OS sa next phone kasi marami nagsasabi na maganda talaga improvement ng Jelly Bean from ICS, especially the smoothness. I would enjoy 1st Jelly Bean for several months, then pag nagsawa na, custom ROM to the rescue! hahaha. .I was referring to the S4 that Xperia T, TX, V used. Have you seen the benchmark tests? It outscored the S3 and OneX (both quad-cores) on several tests.

    The price and battery life really matters to me the most. May friend ako Astra rin ang phone pero di daw umaabot ng 1 day battery niya and lagi niyang dala ang charger. And I've read somewhere that if the smartphones battery recharges daily, less than a year lang ang battery life. Though, magagamit pa yung battery, pero ang performance is degraded. So the longer the battery can handle, the better! :D

  10. i read your comment...but i ask a question... do you want it on same price point? at 7777? if you want that, better buy one of those phones! but minus battery...

    yeah...yung mga 0ne x, s3 or xperia s dont have that huge battery but let me ask you this, how about support?

    me as well, i'm a wise buyer! but i will not consider this cloudfone! due to the fact that support over this phone is not that big! even astra,but at least starmobile is making huge effort! thats why im loving my astra! and the feedback to this phone, thrill 430x, is not that good! its not normal that most of the user's charger exploded... but the battery life is ok though! but support is the question! due to the fact that cloudfone's more horrible than CM!

    btw, s4 pro is quadcore, maybe you mean s4 only! but there's actually an s4 pro dual core...
