O+ Fab Elite Quick Review : Eight Things I Love About the 6.5 Inch Quad Core Android Phablet and Another Giveaway!

TP Friends, in line with today's celebration of the Feast of Epiphany and to officially wrap-up our highly successful (thanks to all of you) #OPlusTPWishUponAReindeer 2013 Yuletide Gadget Bonanza, O+ and I are now holding our final holiday giveaway care of our beloved reindeer, Rudolph!

Rudolph is the probably the most popular of all the reindeer - thanks to that classic Christmas song bearing his name - so it follows that his giveaway should also be quite special.

"Like Donder, I've also chosen to raffle off a brand new O+ Fab Elite! I think it's the most special phablet in O+'s current line-up of products and I'm sure everyone would love to get another chance to own one after Donder announces the winner of his giveaway," Rudolph - who's known for being kind and friendly - told me. And he couldn't have made a better choice!

There are eight things that I totally love about O+ Fab Elite -- aside from the fact that it ships with free exclusive Sennheiser earphones, which Rudolph will be including in the package to be raffled off.

1. Its 6.5-inch IPS OGS five-point multi-touch display with Full HD 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution is an absolute joy to look at. It's big and it's very clear and bright. You can take this super phablet outdoors and you shouldn't have any problems viewing the screen even under direct sunlight.

2. O+ Fab Elite ships with this Flip Cover in lieu of a plain back shell. And what's cool is that phone's software and interface works with this accessory. As I've shared, the flip cover has an inch-tall window in front near the top where you'll see the current time and date for around 3 seconds right after the flap covers the entire glass face of the phone or when you press the power button while the flap is in place.

3. The American company's flagship phablet's Quad Core 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex A7 and 357 MHz PowerVR SGX 544MP based MediaTek MT6589T system on chip running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of ROM (easily expandable via microSD card slot supporting up to 64GB) combine to give the phablet a high Antutu benchmark score of 15,342. So clearly, the device is not all looks no substance. O+ Fab Elite is a powerhouse phablet!

4. Having such powerful innards allows O+ Fab Elite to deliver a stutter-free moile gaming experience. You shouldn't have any problems running popular titles like Sonic Dash, FIFA 14, Temple Run 2, Frozen Free Fall, Zombie Tsunami, Candy Crush Saga, Raging Thunder 2, Need For Speed Most Wanted, Asphalt 8, Soul Calibur, and Injustice: Gods Among Us on this device.

5. The phablet's incredibly large display makes web browsing truly enjoyable. My favorite web browser for Android currently is Firefox - available Google Play Store for free - as it supports flash, loads pages fast, and gives you a full web experience.

6. If you love reading e-books but you hate carrying a tablet and you think a regular-sized smartphone display is just too small for a fun electronic book-reading experience, O+ Fab Elite is the perfect hybrid for you. Get Google Play Books on the device and start downloading titles from your favorite authors.

7. One of the features that are unique to O+ smartphones and phablets is Air Shuffle, which permits a "touch-less Android experience". With this innovation, you can take photos, view images in the gallery, change FM stations, jump from one page to another in the home screen, and play music simply by waving your hand above the phone's display. This is particularly useful for taking selfies using the phone's main camera or for showing images in the gallery to your friends while you're eating and your fingers are too oily.

8. O+ Fab Elite has a removable 3,000 mAh Li-Ion battery pack which easily delivers around 15 hours of uptime with mixed usage including taking photos, watching videos, browsing the web, playing games, reading e-books, texting, and making calls. This means that if you leave your house in the morning with your phablet having 100% battery, you won't have to go through the hassle of charging it again in your office in the middle of the day.

Oh, and it also doesn't hurt that the phablet looks very nice and has powerful front and back cameras! You get a 13 MegaPixel autofocus camera with LED flash and BSI sensor at the back and a 5 MegaPixel front cam also with BSI sensor.

And on top of all that, O+ Fab Elite - with the flip cover - measures only around 11 millimeters, which makes it one of the thinnest mega phablets currently available in the market!

O+ Fab Elite is now available at all O+ Concept Stores and Kiosks across the country for Php 18,995. Yes, it is quite expensive but considering the phablet's gorgeous design, solid construction, and stellar innards, I think that the price is just right.
