The ThL W8 is one of the hot buys under quad-core bracket nowadays. It sports the looks from Samsung Galaxy S4, and as well the overall feel in aesthetics just without the logo.
How can I say? I got a unit on hand. But let me just introduce you the ThL W8 for the mean time by reviewing the specifications it packs.
First off, the ThL W8 is equipped with the MTK6589, Cortex A7 quad core processor that is clocked at 1.2GHz. I promise, this one is a beast processor, yet very affordable. Its twice the previous dual-core performance of course, you wont be having any problems dealing with HD games or apps, and even HQ multimedia playbacks with that kind of processor.
The processor is then matched with a PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU. This one is another beast GPU on its league. The GPU is powerful enough to play any HD games you want to play, without problems.
It runs on the Android 4.1.2 JellyBean OS. Its the latest OS, and just so you know there is already a 4.2 upgrade out in the web for ThL W8. Custom ROMs are already existing as well. The JellyBean OS made the user experience really snappy and lag free on the ThL W8.
The ThL W8 is packed with a 1GB of RAM which is already much for handling application tasks you want to run. Multitasking can be seamlessly done with that memory capacity.
The 4GB ROM is the one responsible for internal storage memory capacity. You’ll have 2.5GB of user accessible storage memory from that. That is even expandable by the use of a micro SD card of up to 32GB in size.
The ThL W8 is slated with a 5-inch screen, it has IPS panel which makes the screen to stay pleasantly looking at any viewing angle. The capacitive touchscreen has an HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, really good and crisp display here.
It is a dual-SIM, dual standby device, that supports 3G. ThL W8 works on any carrier worldwide that supports such frequencies; WCDMA: 850/2100MHz, and GSM: 850/900/1800/1900MHz
The ThL W8 has a 12MP camera on main, and a 5Mp shooter on front. But to be honest, those numbers were just interpolation for settings of the real 8MP and 3.2MP snappers. Still it is able to deliver clear photos and HD videos. Better than any dual-core Chinese Android phones out there -in my experience.
Battery is at 2000mAh. With that capacity, you’ll know you can last a day for a charge at any rate of using. Good number already for battery specification, plus even at that rating; the ThL W8’s body remained on a decent thickness and weight.
