So what are the three things Vic Sotto loves about this release?

1. O+ 360 Touch Technology - In the TVC, Bossing is shown taking selfies with just one hand, using the 360 touch-sensitive patch at the back of his phone. Unique to O+ 360 series handsets, this section on the back cover of the device allows users to snap photos using the phones camera and to navigate the homescreen as well as applications like Facebook and Twitter using only one hand.

2. 5 MegaPixel front-cam with Soft LED flash - There really aren't too many phones in this price echelon that has such high-resolution front-facing camera with autofocus sensor and flash that lets you take selfies even in low to zero lighting conditions. As someone who loves to take selfies, I think that this is definitely one of the main selling points of this model apart from all the unique O+ innovations that come with it.

3. 5-inch HD display panel - No matter how good a phone's dual cameras are, you won't be able to fully enjoy and appreciate the resulting shots if the display is not up to par. Vic Sotto specifically pointed out in the television commercial that this model's 5-inch high-resolution display makes photos and videos 'clearer and crisper'.

Watch the TVC:

Can't wait to play with my unit and try out the selfie cam! Off hand, I think this is the best lower midrange smartphone that O+ USA has released to date. Sure, it's not a powerhouse device in terms of its internal specifications but I think it has enough unique innovations and practical features that make it great daily driver for all budget-conscious Android fans. Thumbs up, O+!
