GT Mobile GT-888 Smartphone Review

GT Dollar had a grand launch on 16th January 2017. To read my earlier blog post, click HERE. This was held at Sime Darby Convention Centre and I was introduced to GT Mobile at this launch. GT Mobile GT-888 smartphone is designed in Singapore. Since GT Mobile is quite new in Malaysia, I will let you know more about its specifications and my honest review. 

Unboxing the GT Mobile GT-888 

GT Mobile GT-888 smartphone comes with a quick charger (charges 35% in 15 mins) which I really like, an earphone, a screen protector, a transparent casing and a user guide. It has a 1 year warranty period. The screen is 5.5" and is the right size and comfortable to hold. The screen is made from Gorilla Glass 3 which is 300% shatterproof and scratch-resistant. Less worries about screen cracking when it falls. The 2.5D Arc Screen delivers high resolution, very clear photos and colors from every angle. It has a metal frame and comes in 2 colors, silk white and metal grey. Mine is the metal grey color.

GT-888 is 8.6 mm thin.

GT Mobile GT-888 features a 64-bit quad-core processor which enables fast speed for playing games or multi-tasking. It runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop OS. I like the dual SIM standby where I can have 2 SIM cards in 1 smartphone. This would be great for some people who need at least 2 different telephone numbers, 1 for work and 1 for personal calls. 

The rear camera is 8.0MP and the front camera is 5.0MP. I have tried taking some outdoor and indoor shots. The photos are clear even in low light because it has an image sensor which can focus in 0.3 seconds. Here are some photos I took. Overall, I am quite satisfied with the clear photos taken.

The GT Mobile GT-888 has a HotKnot Function which allows users to share contents with other smartphone seamlessly. Just tap down swipe to oen HotKnot funtion and put the device in contact with the receiving device screen to screen to start the transfer. You can send photos, songs or files faster than Wifi transmission speed this way.

It also comes with a pre-loaded GT Dollar app and GT Watch app. 

In conclusion, I really like this GT Mobile GT-888 smartphone because it has fast charging, fast speed to get my work done, good quality camera photos, dual SIM cards and HotKnot function.

  4. The photographs look gorgeous! But I think 8MP camera is a bit low for these days. But I guess as a basic phone this would be ok!

  5. Yeah, ok for a basic phone and for the cheaper range smartphones.

  6. I think this is a really good article. You make this information interesting and engaging. You give readers a lot to think about and I appreciate that kind of writing. Samsung Galaxy A8s might do away 3.5 mm headphone jack
