HANDS ON AND FIRST IMPRESSIONS
As of this writing, we only had the phone for a few hours and we are definitely impressed with its build quality. The phone is well built and does not have creaks or loose screws with it. It is also very slim and lightweight. Because of its slim body, it is comfortable to hold and doesn’t bulge while in your pockets. Girls will also love this kind of design because it is easy to carry around and doesn’t take up much space in a small bag or purse.
The 5-inch display is on HD quality and it is bright and vivid. We’ll be doing tests on the display in the coming days. The phone runs Android 4.4 Kitkat and it runs smoothly with no lags thanks to its Octa Core processor.
They say first impressions do last. It is our first time to review a smartphone from Torque and we are definitely impressed. We’ll be using this for a week or so as our daily driver. Battery, camera, performance, gaming and display will be the main points of our full review. Stay tuned. 🙂
