There’s no doubting that the mid-range and entry level smartphone market could use a handset with a large display in the 5-inch region. With more and more smartphone manufacturers headed in that direction with their premium devices, there’s plenty of time for budget solutions for consumers who don’t want to break the bank. The Prestigio MultiPhone PAP5000 DUO is one such option. We’d like to thank Harvey Norman for supplying us with this handset for review, our full video unboxing and first look can be watched below:
5-inch TFT Capacitive multitouch display
480 x 800 resolution
OS: Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
1.2Ghz Cortex A9 CPU
512MB of RAM
4GB of internal storage with MicroSD support
Bottom Line: What makes this device unique is it’s low price point given it’s large display size and unique dual-sim functionality. It’s is perhaps let down by its low resolution of 480 x 800, which gives a pixel density of just 187PPi. Additionally a MicroSD card is a must, as the internal storage is only 4GB. RAM is also low at just 512MB. Nevertheless, this is a very affordable phablet with a modest price point of just €239.
