Read on for my first impressions and more photos.
At its price point, the TORQUE F1 Metal is for sure a solid buy, and I say that literally as the metal casing is quite heavy — heavy to be sturdy, but it will still be light enough for your pocket. If a phone could kill, this would be it. It would probably survive the fall from the way it feels on my hand. TORQUE has built a quick reputation in the affordable mobile market in the Philippines. This I think has nothing to do with the fact that Luis Manzano is their new endorser (John Lloyd Cruz endorses Cherry mobile).
The F1 Metal doesn’t lack in features as well. For about PHP 4,000 you get dual SIM capabilities, a 1.3MP camera, Bluetooth, FM Radio, a music player and GPRS for data. The package comes with two batteries (!!!) and a USB charger that can attach to a wall socket adaptor (included in package!).
A good buy if I do say so myself.
