CloudFone broke boundaries back in December of 2012 when they introduced the CloudFone Ice 350e - the most affordable Android smartphone in the country. Before it, having a smartphone below the price of Php 2,000 was a myth, something absolutely unheard of; but staying to its promise of Android for All, CloudFone was the first to penetrate that barrier. Now, CloudFone is back to bringing innovation at its most affordable by bringing you the most affordable Android Kitkat Smartphones starting at Php 1,499; The most pocket-friendly of which being the Ice 353e.

While it's far from being a powerhouse smartphone - with its basic touchscreen handset features like its 3.5 inch HVGA display, 2 MegaPixel main camera, VGA front cam, EDGE support, 1 GHz Single Core processor, 256 MB of RAM, and 512 MB of ROM, CloudFone Ice 353e nonetheless gives you the benefits of one of the more updated versions of Google's mobile operating system.

As I've shared previously on TechPinas, Android 4.4 KitKat improves mobile user experience by bringing a slew of enhancements to the platform including a smoother user interface, improved touch response, 'immersive mode' when viewing photos, videos, and applications, easy printer set-up, faster multitasking, and 'OK Google' voice command support for launching Google Now.

Should you get it? I think this release should provide a great option for current feature phone users who are on a tight budget but are already thinking about upgrading to a smartphone with an updated operating system. It's very affordable and that should make very attractive to a lot of consumers. As for its reliability, well, I own a number of CloudFone smartphones and I trust this brand. I think all of their handsets come with 1 year service and parts warranty, which should give you peace of mind.
