so many others sells better and cheaper IP67 phones worldwide delivery
Looks great - I've seen that it's available here for £199.99; http://www.decathlon.co.uk/quechuaphone-5-id_8294081.html
I want to buy this phone as soon as it available in Indian shopping website.
I was going to complain about it's size (5 inces is a bit big for running) but since Quechua is more of a hiking company, this screen diagonal is understandable. GPS tracking on this is easy and comfortable, watching a movie on pitching tents looks awesome. The battery will last forever. A really good product IMO, targeting the right audience with the right product. And that price! Awesome, I wonder when will it be available in the Decathlon stores.
Guest, 01 Dec 2013Hope the ports are not closed like xperia Z & z1whats the problem with Z's ports? I have one with nautical miles of salty sea water, chloro pool water and is running like it was its first day. before that I had (still do and still works) xpera active and recently (almost a year), as a more practical weekend phone i bought xperia go. all 3 of them go into water whenever the swell is up. 'course i do have particular care in checking all the ports are shut tight. a friend of mine had a go round about same time as mine and he "drowned it, because he didnt check the ports. so i might guess that this is a user issue, not a equipment problem, dont you think?
Omg. I want this phone so bad. Price point is almost unbelievable. What else do you need? If i had to nit pick maybe a better camera. People need to think twice on what is necessary for what they are paying for. Especially crapple sheep. My Optimus g or almost any comparable sony handset puts the iphony to shame. Unless you got it for free without having to commit a portion of your life, then more power to ya.
Nick, 30 Nov 2013Pretty decent, when you are lost in the forest you would want to making calls not playing asph... moreThis.Geeks be crying about the specs again like "No Hd,No Snapdragon,this phone is Crap!!".You aint getting the point,this phone was designed for people who actually have a life and is constantly outdoors,not geeks that "customize" their phone all day,every day.
It would be verry funny to find this device at Decathlon, as I know Quechua is one of their brands.
yut, 30 Nov 2013lol... who's gonna pay $300 for a device powered by the crappy msm8225q, hahaha. pathetic!obviosly not you...cause you are a aijphoney user...
Sadly phone ANT+ support got extinct after the 2011 xperia devices, and I don't see it here either.. I'll probably have to buy new sensors supporting BT4.0 :(
Anonymous, 30 Nov 2013What about the display? Dpi? Is it good?Just under 200 dpi.
Pretty decent, when you are lost in the forest you would want to making calls not playing asphalt or uploading selfies
no, 480p. It's a cheap underspecced phone unfortunately.
Which is too bad, because this thing's USP is the huge battery.
At IP57 or better hardening, a good screen, and Moto-G grade guts, it would have been a great 300€ phone instead of a crappy 230€ phone.
