Cloudfone Excite Prime: Review and Photos

by - Monday, October 02, 2017


First of all, I'm not an expert when it comes to choosing the best mobile phone in the market. I, most of the time rely on what's trending. However, in June 2017, we went to the SM Megamall just to look for better brands, and I accidentally bought a Cloudfone Excite Prime. We've been using this brand by the way. I already bought smartphones twice from the same shop. Originally, the plan was for me to buy a Cherry Mobile phone, but since they don't allow to check the phones for demo and no phones are available for demo (which is really annoying, like, how would you be able to have a glance of the item? Duh?) Me, to the sales clerk 😕

Before I take you to my verdict, here are the specs, interface, and features of this amazing phone (plus sample photos, guys!) and raw photos at the end of this blog post.

SETTINGS PAGE


These are the settings that I love about the Cloudfone Excite Prime:


As you can see, it's claim of 16GB internal storage is REAL! I still have more than 10GB left and because of that, I can still save more photos!

The SIM cards setting is very user-friendly. All you have to do is to toggle off or on your preferred SIM slot. You can also choose your cellular data SIM, and place on a "ASK EVERY TIME" mode so you can choose, whether or not, to use which SIM you prefer for calls and SMS.



Now, this phone got it's smart awake and gesture features. On the photo I chose to tick "Double click to lock screen" for easy access and the smart awake on for shortcuts.

CAMERA SETTINGS AND FEATURES


Front camera:


This phone's front camera is 5MP but as you can see, it is clearer, brighter, and has bokeh effect when focused. It also has "BEAUTY" feature where you can adjust the settings for your preference (please, excuse my sleepy, tired face as I was on a night shift while taking these samples 😜)

Rear Camera:


The rear camera is 13MP and has an auto-focus feature as well. Perfect for food and fashion photos. It has other settings on the third photo to up your mobile photography game. 📷

Video:


Once you hit the video recorder icon, it will automatically record a video for you. As you can see, both rear and front are amazingly clear and impressive. Just hit the button with square icon to stop the recording and you're done 😊


On the first photo, to get into that setting, all you have to do is to swipe down from the top of the screen even you're on other applications or camera. This is where you turn on your data, change the settings of the audio, flashlight, etc. Yup, it's the shortcut to the basic settings.

On the second photo, that's where you clear the recent activity or page you have done and visited on the phone. To get in there, just click the square icon on the lower left side of the screen to either clear by clicking the broom icon, or if you want to go back to the previous activity. 👍


Now these are the settings that can be done when you swipe up in the home screen. On the photos, you can choose the widgets to be pinned in the home screen, shortcut to wallpaper settings, and effect for when you swipe from left to right of the home screen.

Verdict: 

The camera, internal storage, quality of the photos, the audio, the body, and the price make the Cloudfone Excite Prime a must-have smartphone if you're out of budget. By the way, it only cost me *3,999 PHP. Yes! You heard that right 😍

The only thing that I don't like about this phone is the charger. It gets defective after the 7 days warranty. I am now using the other brand's charger. But in totality, it is worth it.

It comes in different colors as well. I got the red one. As far as I can remember, it comes in blue, white, and black.

What's in the box? 

Charger | Spotify earphones | Free silicon case | Manual | Free SIM card

It's been 3 months since I bought it and I can say that it's still functioning as pretty as when it was new. 

I also play mobile games and so far, the gaming experience is smooth and seamless. 

Battery life takes within a day for regular use. If you play online games, it's 100% battery may take up to 5-7 hours. Pretty enough when you're out and about 😉

I hope this review helped you a lot if you're currently into hunt of a low-cost smartphone with better quality. If you're interested to know more about Cloudfone Excite Prime, it's here
