InfoSonics has quietly built a line of feature rich Smartphones at bargain prices that no other Smartphone manufacturer can match. The verykool S505 is the latest to hit the market boasting features like Quadcore CPU, 5 inch Display and slim profile.
InfoSonics includes with the Spark, a screen protector, case, 2,000mAh battery, earphones, microUSB cable, and charger. I like that InfoSonic manage to include so many bonus items like the screen protector, earbuds, and case which would end up costing you $20-$30 separately.
The Spark comes in black or white versions with a price tag of $199.99 unlocked to any GSM carrier. The design is very impressive with a sleek and slim size that will impressive and delight you. The phone looks like a mash up of the popular Galaxy Note and Nexus phone. Like the Nexus phones the verykool S505 has no physical buttons on the front of the display. The Spark keeps it simple and that what I like about the phone. The 5.0 inch 720p (1280×720 pixels) Capacitive Touchscreen features IPS display that is bright and crystal clear. I compared the screen to my Nexus 4 and have to say that the verykool s505 wins by a landslide.
The verykool s505 Spark features a 1.3GHz MediaTek Quadcore CPU, 5-inch HD IPS LCD screen, 2 megapixel front-facing camera while the 12.0 megapixel rear camera, 2 Sim cards, microSD expandability, Android Jelly Bean 4.2( and 3G. The Spark also features WIFI, Bluetooth, GPS and FM Radio. The Spark is a very powerful and capable Smartphone that rivals high end Smartphones from Apple, Samsung, HTC, and Motorola. The Spark comes unlocked, which is very nice as you have the choice to choose your carrier and plan. I can decide to go with AT&T, T-Mobile or any other GSM carrier depending on the cheapest and offers the best service.
The verykool S505 like the Nexus line includes pure Android experience. This is very important as some skins slow down the OS. Verykool has added one important features called MobileTREC, which is a Personal Safety Services app that allows you to text 911 in case of emergencies.
The verykool s505 Spark is by far the best Smartphone for the money. It is very rare to find a quad core smartphone with 5 inch display for under $200 unlocked. Considering that major manufacturers are selling their Smartphones unlocked for $600-$800 makes the Spark a true bargain. In terms of looks and features the verykool s505 Spark is a Smartphone to consider the next time you decide to upgrade your old phone.
