It's been awhile I stick to my phone that I kinda forgot how it feels to have something new in hand to play with, and Gphone EVO came just in time for me to discover how a phone with such affordable price can be so awesome that I literally forgot bout my phone for awhile.

I'm so excited when I receive the phone I just can't wait to explore it. Running on Android, it's not a problem for me to test out its possibilities. So it's unboxing time when I received the package:
|I like this design|
It was love at first when I saw the design and love it even more when I lift it up!
|Slim and sleek, this is how a phone should be.|
Gphone EVO is one solid phone to hold in hand and even more love when the display lits up. I like how the display colours are so crisp and real, its vivid colour made scrolling the phone a real sensation, not to mention when it comes to watching videos and scrolling photos in Instagram and Facebook.
There's a phone casing came along with the parcel, which helps protect the phone from scratch and all, am glad the company is so thoughtful because I admit that I'm a pretty careless person when it comes to phone and some personal belongings, without the phone casing it will be an extra stress for me to test out this phone throughout these period.
So, I've showed you the phone's design, the display and all, and since it's an Android phone, I downloaded all the phone apps via wifi at the moment I got it. Targeting the sub-urban area users, Gphone EVO is definitely gonna worth every cent your spent on it. Octa core processor makes the phone responds almost instantly when you launch an app and switch between apps, that's what I like most, no waiting or lagging, those are life-wasting moments don't you think so?
When I watch videos using the phone, or capture video myself, I'm amazed by the smoothness of the videos. Due to the full utra HD video codec support, or HEVC (H.265) and Google VP9 video codecs for ultra HD video streaming, 1080p Full HD and 4k2k Ultra HD video support gives you the ultimate video-enjoying sensation, smooth and seamless performance along with the MiraVision video fluency enhancer and 60fps video frame rate conversion make everything looks perfect.
The first video I created and edited, I'm kinda proud of myself hahaha. But look at the smooth video (not the colour because it was filtered) captured using Gphone EVO. It makes my Instagram more livelier! I'm seriously amazed by the phone's camera and video features that can helped me record life's precious moments almost instantly and also the colour of images and videos are so close to real life.

Basically I enjoy browsing and chatting through Gphone EVO, its Curve word gesture and Wave sentence gesture keyboards system makes typing a breeze. I don't have to wait or press space between each words, it is one of the feature I like most of this phone. Sometimes I tend to swipe like how I did while using other phones but I forgot how they don't have the Curve and Wave keyboard systems, I guess I've pretty much make swiping a habit of mine while chatting for easy typing.
Playing games using the phone is another sensation too as its octa core processor allows speedy apps launching and also less lagging throughout the gaming process. Had so much phone playing Minion Rush with this phone, sounds are clear and colours are brilliant. It's just that sometimes there's a few apps that closes itself, which I think is the app coding problem, but I guess most phones have that minor bug problem so it's not something major.
I'm glad that I've given enough time to explore and discover how good Gphone EVO is, its speed and performance is truly beyond limits. Featured in ERing May 2014 issue, do look out for Gphone EVO at their local dealers near you to try it out.
