Do you know what really sucks? Losing your phone and having to fork over a ton of money for a new phone. A few years ago, after I got my first smart phone this happened the first week I got my phone. It was painful to have to fork the several hundred dollars out of pocket when I lost that phone. If this happens to you and you are a fan of Android phones, I have the perfect affordable phablet alternative for you!
Introducing the Juno Quatro. Very Kool, the developer of the Quatro sent us over a phone to review.
The Juno Quatro is an affordable smart phone that offers you the size of a phablet as well as the functionality, without the cost. If you are looking to purchase a phone out right, or if you lose a phone and need an alternative without paying several hundred dollars – you will be excited to learn about what the Quatro has to offer.
The Juno Quatro is only $164.99. It runs on any GSM network. A few US GSM networks this smart phone will work on: AT&T, T-Mobile, Cellular One, Airfire Mobile and H2O Wireless (BONUS, if you do want to make payments – Paypal offers a payment option for this phone.)
Juno Quatro Review
Here are my initial impressions of the phone.
The screen is BIG. I was expecting it to be TOO big for my hands, but you know what it actually works well and while this is a fablet, I don’t feel like it is too big.
It also is very thin!
Android 4.4 KitKat
Since this runs Android 4.4 KitKat, the user interface is familiar. There are a few differences in the UX, but you will have a different experience and feel with each phone.
Camera, Bluetooth & More
Sporting a 8mp camera or clear pictures, and Bluetooth 4.0 for device connectivity, I do think the Juno Quatro is a great answer for anyone wanting the size of a phablet, that runs Android and doesn’t want to pay the outrageous cost of some of the big names.
My phone is fushia, the Quatro also comes in green.
