O+ Upsized Price is Php 5,395, Specs, Features, In the Flesh Photos

I was walking around SM CyberZone in SM San Lazaro earlier this evening when I chanced upon the mysterious phablet from O+ USA that many of you guys have been asking me about over the past few days. I saw it at the O+ Kiosk near the elevator.

O+ Upsized

O+ Upsized is the most affordable 5.5-inch Android phablet in the company's early 2016 product line-up. This one is crafted specifically for students and young professionals who are on the look out for a smartphone-tablet hybrid that's big on features but doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

Donning an official suggested retail price of only Php 5,395, O+ Upsized is equipped with a massive 5.5-inch HD IPS display panel providing an enjoyable viewing experience, an 8 MegaPixel autofocus main camera with LED flash, 5 MegaPixel front selfie shooter, Full HD video recorder, Dual SIM Dual Standby capability, 3G HSPA+ support, and a removable 2,500 mAh battery pack. Not bad for an entry-level Android phablet, right?

Under the hood, the device runs its near-vanilla Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system with 1.3 GHz Quad Core processor (most likely MediaTek MT6582, but we've yet to confirm that), has 1 GB of RAM for multitasking, and comes with 8 GB of ROM paired with 32 GB microSD card for a total of a whopping 40GB of storage right out of the box! That's a lot of space for your photos, videos, and movies, which is a real treat for O+ USA.

As for the handset's design, well - as you can see in the photos - it has rounded sides ala O+ 360 HD as well as a removable polycarbonate back plate with matte, sandstone finish that feels great to the touch. Overall, the look is quite simple but it has enough identifying design elements to be rather interesting.

O+ Upsized is now available at all O+ USA Concept Stores, kiosks, and authorized retail partners nationwide. It's out in just one color: Black. And the standard retail package includes the unit itself, battery pack, travel charger, user manual, headphones with in-ear silicone buds, microUSB to USB connector cable, and the free 32GB SanDisk microSD memory card.

Is O+ Upsized the right handset for you? If you're currently looking for a capable Android smartphone with a large display and sizable storage space but you have only around Php 5,000 to spend on it, you should certainly check out this model. O+ USA is also particularly known for its great after sales service so if you're after that too, then I guess you'd do well to go with this smartphone.
