The dual-SIM Posh Mobile Memo has a big screen, but not much elseThe Posh Mobile Memo is big, dual-SIM phablet with middling hardware.
Hey. I'm Nate and today we're checking out the Posh Mobile Memo. Now this is the massive 5.9 inch android device available for just $170 bucks unlocked. You can even find it for about $100 bucks on Amazon. It's also not a very good phone. The Memo has a huge screen, but the phone is three and a half inches wide, which makes it pretty hard to do much of anything with one hand. That'll also prove problematic when you're holding it up to your face to make calls. The 5.9 inch screen has an 800 by 480 pixel resolution, which is really disappointing. Something this big would've been perfect for HD video or looking at high resolution pics, but images look washed out, and the viewing angles here aren't great. Performance is also disappointing, as there's only 512 megabytes of RAM and a dual core 1.3 gigahertz processor. That'll get you around menus and apps, but even simpler games, like the Cart Racer Angry Birds Go, for example, just kind of drag along. There's a five megapixel camera on the back, but it struggles even in ideal, well lit conditions. On the plus side, there's little to no bloatware, which is rare for phones this cheap. And the BC battery can go for quite a while. Now, this is one of the cheapest apps around, but if you're gonna get a phone this big, it's gotta be worth carrying. And the [INAUDIBLE] falls flat. I'm Nate Ralph, be sure to read my full review, thanks for watching.
