O+ 8.7 Android Phone and O+ 6.3 WiFi Feature Decent Specs at Affordable Prices

A brand established in the United States, O+ joins the aggressive mobile device competition in the Philippines with its own lineup of offerings at affordable price points. O+ roster is a combination of handsets that run on Android and on the company’s proprietary operating system enhanced with the Air Shuffle feature.

Starting off with one of O+ Android-powered mobile phones, the O+ 8.7 Android Phone sports a 3.2-inch capacitive multitouch screen and a camera with 1.5x zoom in front. The 3.2-megapixel main camera has face detection feature. Powered by a mobile processor clocked at 1GHz, the O+ 8.7 smoothly runs on Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread). Additionally, the handset includes 512MB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 32GB through a memory card and a 1400mAh battery. O+ sells the 8.7 Android Phone for the price of PhP 4,995 locally.


The second phone, the O+ 6.3 WiFi shares similarities with the 8.7 Android Phone, but uses O+’s exclusive mobile OS with Air Shuffle feature. The said feature allows users to control music playback by means of simple gestures. Like the 8.7 Android Phone, the 6.3 WiFi has a 3.2-inch screen, 3.2-megapixel camera with zoom and face detection. The handset can support up to 16GB of storage. In terms of pricing, O+ offers the 6.3 WiFi a few notches lower than that of the 8.7 Android Phone at PhP 3,795.
