CloudFone Thrill 600FHD Unboxing: The Biggest CloudFone yet

Cloudfone Thrill 600FHD 09

We unbox the CloudFone Thrill 600FHD!

A few days ago we reported on CloudFone’s biggest Android offering yet: the Thrill 600 FHD. The Thrill 600 FHD is the company’s biggest and most expensive Android smartphone so far, so we were interested to put it through its paces to see where it stacks up compared to the competition. CloudFone sent a device over to us and today we’ll be taking a quick look at what’s in the box and checking its initial performance numbers.

Packaging and contents

The Thrill 600FHD comes in CloudFone’s typical white and yellow box, with the specs printed out on the back to tell you exactly what you’re getting with the device.

Initial Impressions: nice solidly built device with small bezels

We were pleasantly surprised to see that the Thrill 600FHD was a rather handsome device, which we didn’t expect based on the photos sent to us by CloudFone. While it’s rather large because of its 6-inch display, it’s probably a milimiter or two away from the size of the Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro that we’re currently reviewing, which is another smartphone with a 6-inch display. The bezels on the side, top and bottom of the Thrill 600FHD are rather small, which makes the device easy to grip in one hand, though two handed operation will still be the norm when you try to use it.

The majority of the materials used to make the Thrill 600FHD is plastic, though there’s a small sliver of metal (probably aluminum) that’s layered on top of the plastic case of the device.

The battery is none-removable, and is a 3000mAh deal. The two SIM trays are located on the left side of the phone, while the volume rocker and power button are located on the right. The 3.5mm jack is on the top, while the USB port is located at the bottom of the device.

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

When CloudFone sent the spec sheet of the Thrill 600FHD to us a few days ago, we noticed that the company said that the 13-megapixel camera on the Thrill 600FHD was a fixed focus affair. That’s not true – the camera on the Thrill 600FHD is capable of focusing on subjects both near and far.

As far as performance is concerned, you’re looking at the same performance from other devices that have roughly the same hardware specs. MediaTek’s 1.7GHz octa-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM manages to put out decent numbers in AnTuTU as well as Geek Bench, which isn’t surprising.

That’s it for this unboxing.

        1. Madami talagang batang hamog sa tech blog sites. Pag nagsalita ka ng masama sa isang brand aawayin ka na parang kamag anak nila ang gadget. May palocal local brand pa e lahat naman yan gawa sa china. Dadating ang araw IP Block ang mga squatter na yan.

      2. ui.. bat kaba nagagalit? nag suggest lang ako…sadyang ganyan lang ba talaga angutakng pinoy na walang na pag aralan…. kasi sa price nayan kasi ay makakabili na ako ng MEIZU MX4 .. ngaung december..atingnanmo nga mas maganda pa naman kasi ang specs ng MEIZU MX4 eh…..halospareho lang kasi price…kaya wag kamagmura dyan

        cge, panu KA aasenso kapag bumili ka ng LOCAL brand? bka ung BRAND lang mismo ang aasenso, hindi ikaw kse di ka marunong tumingin ng phones. B*BOness!

        1. Tarantado nagsuggest lang yung tao. Ikaw yung walang masabing maganda. Ang tapang ng batang hamog na to pero bahag naman buntot mo sa personal. Eh kung nagkataong kilala ka ng taong minura mo at nakita ka sa pisonet na pinagtatambayan mo e di gulpi inabot mo bobo.

  2. There it is again.. colonial mentality!!! way to go Pinoys!!! 🙂 pero kahit anung gamit nyong phone.. local pa din tau!!!

    1. Ulol! Walang pinoy pinoy sa gadgets. Lumang tugtugin na yang colonial mentality issue. Lahat yan ay gawa sa China kaya wag mong ipagyabang ang pinoy pride chicken mo. Hayaan mo si Zhai kung yun ang gusto niyang phone bobo,

  3. I am a solid cloudfone fan. My first smartphone is a cloudfone. I bought it last year dec.2013 and it is still working really good. Mag one year na sya this december. And just this october i bought the intel/cloudpad. Im using it now. I have no complaints just appreciation for cloudfone. I think I wanna have this cloudfone 600. Soon. Its time to upgrade my old cloudfone smartphone.

  4. Come 3rd-4th Q of next year, this will retail for half it’s current price. Why buy one now when you can get two.

  5. Wag kayo mag pauto sa clodfone ang mamahal pero di naman binibigay yung tamang serbisyo. Bumili ako ng cloudfone 501d nila. Puta walang google play service. Yung camera ang labo. Tapos may ghost touches. Wala pang 5months sira na yung power button. Tapos nung dinala ko sa sc nila sabi processor na daw yung sira. Tapos ibinalik kase wala na daw silang piyesa. Nagbebenta sila ng cp pero wala ng piyesa.

    1. LOL ka..eh magtingin ka muna kasi ng specs bago bumili…ikaw siguro yung tipo ng tao na..pag mura bili agad..sana din before ka nagpurchase chineck mo muna yung quality ng cam..tingin tingin din pag may time

  6. Cloud gone is the best for me ksi ang tobacco ng 503 thrill. So ikaw hater k sa cloudfone poor ka Kasi. Based on this specs at yung bagong cloud pad 700 Fhd bibili ako nito promise.

  7. I just bought one yesterday, ok nmn xa talgang maganda ang built pero wala k nmn talaga mhahanap n perfect meron at meron parin indi pasado s panlasa mo lalo n kapag talagang marami k ng brand ng phone na nhawakan before, dito sa thrill 600 ang masasabi ko mas malinaw ang camera ng myphone agua iceberg lalo n sa low light.
