Firefly mobile intros another smartphone under the Intense series that features a metallic body made of Magnesium alloy – the Firefly Mobile Intense Metal.
It focuses on ‘beauty and strength’ which are apparent in the photos below specially the icy champagne or gold model. Moreover, it’s well within the average Filipino’s budget at ₱4,499.00 SRP!
The Firefly Mobile Intense Metal has a huge 5.5-inch screen with zero-gap OGS technology and protected by a scratch resistant Asahi DragonTrail glass.
However, it only has a qHD resolution or 540 x 960 pixels which results in a pixel density of merely 200 ppi. Hopefully, the OGS technology can offset this weakness and prevent users from noticing the pixels.
|That’s quite a good design.|
On the other hand, photography should be sweet with its 13MP rear camera that uses a backside illuminated (BSI) image sensor from Sony. Selfies are taken care of an 8MP front snapper.
A 1.3GHz quad core processor from MediaTek powers the Firefly Mobile Intense Metal together with 1GB of RAM. Sadly, it only has Android 4.4 Kitkat and a Lollipop update isn’t guaranteed.
|Firefly says the Intense Metal is also available in black. This white version is strange.|
There’s 8GB of built-in storage which can be expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card and a 3,300mAh battery that should be enough for more than a day of use.
Each purchase entitles you to freebies including a water and oil repellant tempered glass, silicone case and a basic Firefly phone.
