I was invited to S-CSL launch at Oriental Banquet in Petaling Jaya just recently to check out their new smartphone – Switch Mars Mi450, and Switch Pluto Mi406, and have a hands on experience and product comparison especially to their predecessors Switch Mercury Mi501 and Switch StarMi460.
Just like their predecessors, Switch Mars and Switch Pluto comes with Dual SIM Dual Standby capabilities. These new phones are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 1.2GHz Dual-Core processor, and comes preloaded with Android 4.0 ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich) OS.
During the launch, we were given a chance to test out some of the apps the staff of S-CSL loaded into the phones. My favourite was the Augmented Reality app. I learnt about this function long time ago from my super tech-savvy boyfie, so it was kind of fun. Basically, using the camera function, you get to view preset information or images using an app once you placed the camera over an environment. Check out the images in the gallery to see what I mean.
Anyway, I was given a set of Switch Mars Mi450 to test and review, which you would see in my Geek Talk section very soon!
