Recently, the company again upgraded the plus with not one but two new phones - ?the CECT P168 S model and C model.?This article will focus on the S model.
The P168S is a lot like the quad band on which it is based. But, the manufacturer has added a couple of features that have been popular on other?models (like the A88 and the A380i)?and has made the phone smaller.
The?Smaller Size On This Mini Appeals To Some: The S model is considered a mini as it's among the smallest clones currently on the market, weighing in at only 85 grams. (Many of the smaller models come in at about 95 grams).?The dimensions of this one?are 112 x 56.8 x 14.8 mm.?
Admittedly, some folks balk at at a more compact phone (and thus smaller touch screen) since this means the?video picture is also more compact, but there's a large sub set of consumers who are willing to give up a bit of screen in return for this sleek?mobile that can easily fit in a small pocket.
Shake And Tilt Gives Some Users The Best Of Both Worlds: For a while, there were sort of two camps of iPhone clones. The straightforward models that mostly resembled the iPhone (like the original P168 iClone) and the models with a lot of the novelty features like shake and tilt).?With the release of models like the P168S and the SciPhone, the manufacturer is offering what many feel is the best of the two, combining the ease of use of the standard models with the fun, novelty features like shake and tilt.
That said, not every one loves the shake to the music feature. (This allows you to advance music and media only by shaking the phone.?You take pictures and video wide screen by tilting it.)?For those who don't listen to a lot of music or watch a lot of video, this feature rarely gets used.?But, most people who do use the MP3 / MP4 a lot really love that there's no scrolling?involved.
Other Standard Features, Including Dual Sim Standby: The S version's small size does not mean that it's not fully loaded.?There are no real surprises or omissions here. The S model allows you to, browse the web (via GPRS Class 12); email, text, and message (SMS, EMS, MMS,); use Bluetooth (2.0); have full access to MP3 / MP4s, FM radio, and an e - book reader; and includes a 1.3 mega pixel camera and web cam.?The CECT P168S can support up to 2GB of memory.
This mobile can support ?850 / 1800 / 1900 or 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz, depending on where you will be using it. Generally the phone is? set to work in the country in which you live. Although you could set this yourself using engineering mode, in my experience it's best to buy one already set or let the seller do this for you.
Additionally, there are two more features that the 168S is known for: dual sim standby and the "special ripple effect."
Dual sim standby means that you can use the phone with two sims working at the same time. So, as an example you could be reading data on the internet or downloading information on a T Mobile sim, while taking a call on AT&T.
The "special ripple" effect allows you to change and manipulate pictures by dragging or running your fingers across the touch screen.?This works hand in hand with the "menu flow touch" or the "touch in and out" interface supported by this phone.
Price: Another good thing about this phone is that it is often less expensive than some of the other new quad bands, usually starting around $100 and rarely going over $150. So, to use my own kids as an example, whenever you decide to again upgrade to the next newest, must -have phone, you can do so guilt free.
