GEOTEL Note

Geotel Note – Stand Out, from inside to outside.

Note comes with a powerful Mediatek 64bit Quad-core processor, 3GB RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, at a reasonable price around $90, which is the best price among 4G LTE 3GB smartphone at the market right now. 3GB LPDDR3 RAM is the biggest shining point of this mid-range beast, low power DDR3 technology lets it save 17% power than DDR2 and works more efficient by 50%. Too much background apps are no longer the trouble for slowing Android system down. You can play a game while you are downloading or listening a music. It looks like Note is aiming to reach the hearts of gamers and heavy users with the device’s rapid speed and power.
Another spotlight that comes with the design, a new material finishing, that GEOTEL calls as MetalPrint, which makes the phone look so premium from the back sight, and holds together by a metallic painting frame which even looks classy. MetalPrint is a natural beauty inspired by the spirit of star trails, the signature concentric-circle patterning to create the visual effect of metallic, 11 super process has let the back surface reflect uniquely in the light.Being different from other 5.5-inch display, NOTE contains a new technology on its 5.5-inch HD optimized screen, GEOTEL calls it TruView technology. As per GEOTEL, their engineers removed the white back light LED from the original LCD, and chose a blue LED instead, which has much more color range. The test result shows new TruView display increasing 21% color gamut and 50% displaying contrast than the old one. That could be the revolution for the display, that makes NOTE’s display looking more vivid and colorful. Looking around the rest specs of the device, the main camera is a 13 megapixel sensor with an F2.0 aperture. Up front is an 8MP selfie shooter with 84° wide angle lens, that allows you shoot more friends around in just one picture. The battery in the Note is removable and sized at 3200mAh which should be able to make it through one whole day’s usage. For network, 4G-LTE provides you to access internet world by 10x faster, 802.11ac WI-FI is supported unexpectedly on this device. Google Play is pre-installed on the device and there is full access to all of Google’s apps including Gmail, YouTube and Google Keyboard.
