Phicomm EX780L now available on Lazada for RM799
The Phicomm EX780L is probably one of the lesser known smartphones out there. In fact, I didn’t know about it before writing this post. Anyway, the Phicomm EX780L is now available on Lazada for RM799 as part of the Online Revolution sales.
While Phicomm may be a relatively unknown brand, the EX780L packs quite a punch. It actually has specifications very similar to the OnePlus One, which made some waves with the flagship killer specifications it packed while maintaining an affordable price tag. Well, the EX780L is actually better than the OnePlus One on paper.
At the heart of the EX780L, a capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 thumps away, paired with 3GB of RAM, a combination which is still strong enough to allow the EX780L trade punches with some of the latest smartphones out there. The EX780L runs on Android 4.4.4 KitKat, not the latest version available but it does its job. The 13 MP camera on the rear and 5 MP selfie camera should keep everyone happy with sharp photos and selfies. For enhanced security, the EX780L packs a fingerprint recognition sensor too.
The display is a 5.5″ OGS IPS FHD (1080p) panel. For the uninitiated, OGS displays means that the glass is closer to the actual LCD panel, offering a brighter and more vivid display. All your media will be stored on 32GB of non-expandable storage. Connectivity wise, 4G LTE with support for dual nanoSIMs comes standard. The 2900 mAh battery offers assurance that you do not need to carry your powerbank everywhere you go. All of that is stuffed into a 8.9 mm premium aluminium unibody.
The Phicomm EX780L is available in any color as long as its silver and the 12 month warranty will be handled by Comsat Mobile Communications Sdn Bhd. The Online Revolution sales are running until the 12th of December, so if you are interested in the Phicomm EX780L, be sure to snap yours up before the 12th to enjoy the discount!
Pokdepinion: I personally own a Snapdragon 801 device and I believe that this processor should still be relevant for at least another year, as the performance level is still on par with many of the newer mid-range CPUs. I wonder how fast is the fingerprint sensor though.
