torque EGO Note 4G
Proud Local Budget Smartphone
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.
