Here’s the 3rd phone that we’ll raffle soon. But before that, I would like to review the phone first. Just to give you some preview of the phone, the phone would have a 3.2” resistive touchscreen, Dual Sim and a mobile TV. Yep, all of those phones that we’ll be giving away will have dual sim and mobile TV. (Well, if you’re watching the BIG TIME SHOW regularly, I previously discussed and shown some of the features of this phone. Unfortunately the phone isn’t on Android (Sorry Android fans!). The phone is powered by proprietary OS which has some features that are similar to Android. The user interface of the phone is somewhat combination of HTC, LG and Samsung Android phones. Nonetheless, the phone still looks good. Check out the break for the review of the phone
Hardware and Construction
And just as we suspected, the phone is made up of plastic but it got some pretty chrome-y sides. Its design reminds me of the First Samsung Omnia. Even though the body is made up of plastic, the cellphone is very solid and the phone seems to be heavy for its size but I got no problem with that. IMO, I really like the design of the DTC Mobile GT2. I like the chrome-y sides and all.

The DTC Mobile GT2 packs a 1.3 megapixel rear camera and a front camera. Like what I’ve said earlier, you can’t use landscape mode to take pictures. The quality of the camera isn’t that good since it is just a 1.3 megapixel camera. Don’t expect too much on the camera of this phone but this one got a LED Flash.

The phone’s OS is proprietary and it combines the UI elements of iPhone, Samsung, LG and HTC. The Homescreen looks like HTC but the clock widget came from LG. But when you open the Menu, you’ll see the Samsung inspired icons but you can change that to iOS. The iOS menu style is much cleaner than the other one. There are some apps that most of you need like the Facebook and Twitter which are just a shortcut to mobile sites. There’s a web browser too but don’t expect a full web browsing experience just like on your iPads and smartphones. The web browser isn’t good as the one that can be found on most smartphones.

All in all, the DTC Mobile GT2 is just one of the mobile TV in the market. It features the same hardware just like the other featurephones but this one sports a 3.2” touchscreen, Mobile TV, Dual Sim and MicroSD. Those are just some of the features that can’t found on some phones. The DTC Mobile GT2 is now available at DTC Mobile Kiosks and online stores for P2,799.
