in line with the cel­e­bra­tion of its 9th an­niver­sary, Filipino mo­bile de­vice brand Torque has re­leased three new smart­phones from its EGO line, one of which is the Torque EGO note 4G.

Priced at PHP 4,599, the EGO Note 4G gets its job done as a smart­phone. With 5.5inch dis­play, the smart­phone gave us a nice view­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with a sat­is­fac­tory color sat­u­ra­tion, just enough for an IPS HD dis­play. The cham­fered 2.5D edges makes the hand­set easy to grip.

the EGO Note 4G runs on the lat­est An­droid 7.0 nougat, 1.3GHZ quad-core pro­ces­sor, 1GB RAM, and 8GB in­ter­nal stor­age. Th­ese days, the norm for the in­ter­nal stor­age of smart­phones starts at 16GB, but the EGO note 4G has only 8GB and it did not suf­fice the in­stal­la­tion of our mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tions such as Face­book, Twit­ter, in­sta­gram, Snapchat, and Spo­tify, among oth­ers. nev­er­the­less, you can eas­ily ex­pand its stor­age by us­ing a mi­crosd card.

We fur­ther ob­served EGO note 4G’s speed by launch­ing and us­ing ap­pli­ca­tions si­mul­ta­ne­ously, and it barely lagged. With only just 1GB RAM, it is quite sur­pris­ing that brows­ing on this phone is a sat­is­fac­tory breeze. run­ning An­tutu Bench­mark on this de­vice, it scored 22535. Mean­while, it scored 5635 on the Quad­rant Stan­dard. Packed with a 3000mah bat­tery, the phone lasted up to 8 hours and 12 min­utes in our stamina test that con­sisted of play­ing a looped video with a max­i­mum bright­ness and vol­ume, and Blue­tooth and Wi-fi en­abled.

The grille speak­ers of the EGO Note 4G are placed on its back. it gave us a de­cent sound, but we do not rec­om­mend it for out­side lis­ten­ing when on loud­speak­ers. On the other hand, its sound has no any dis­tor­tion as we lis­tened to mu­sic and watched videos on this de­vice.

On the imag­ing front, the EGO note 4G’s 5-megapixel front cam­era gave us good, de­cent photos. its front cam­era is equipped with LED flash that en­hanced our self­ies in low-light con­di­tions. its 8-megapixel cam­era also gave us de­cent photos dur­ing day­light, how­ever, in low­light, it is not rec­om­mended un­less you opt to use its flash. The EGO note 4G’s cam­era is sur­pris­ingly snappy and barely lagged when we were tak­ing mul­ti­ple shots. Mind that there is a slight bump along its cam­era and we rec­om­mend putting on a phone case.

the torque EGO Note 4G’s de­sign re­sem­bles a com­bi­na­tion of the Sam­sung Gal­axy S3 and the Ap­ple iphone 6. From the proud­lyFilipino brand, the Torque EGO note 4G is an amaz­ing bat­tery-ef­fi­cient and bud­get­friendly smart­phone.
