Torque is one of the brands that have established a name in the Philippine mobile scene. Just like Cherry Mobile, Torque releases models on a regular basis, most of which run Android OS. It’s been a while since Torque released a new Android tablet and the most recent one is the Droidz Mini Q.
The Torque Droidz Mini Q packs a 7.85-inch display and runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The display size and aspect ratio puts the Torque Droidz Mini Q in the iPad Mini and LG G Pad 8.3 range, but what it has going for it is its retail price. The Torque Droidz Mini Q is affordably priced at Php7,699 and actually has a very decent set of hardware specs.
The Torque Droidz Mini Q s actually a good alternative to the iPad Mini
The Torque Droidz Mini Q is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek MT8389 processor supported by 1GB of RAM. Cheap Android tablets suffer from performance issues as most of them provide 512MB of RAM. For the Torque Droidz Mini Q, 1GB of RAM should provide a sufficiently fast performance. Torque did not skim on the other hardware specs, equipping the Droidz Mini Q with 8GB of internal storage expandable up to 32GB via microSD slot. The Droidz Mini Q is even good in the photography aspect, packing an 8MP main camera and a 1.3MP front camera.
This is not all. The Torque Droidz Mini Q has 3G HSPA+ connectivity and is in fact has dual-SIM capability. This means that this tablet can be used to sends and receive text messages and to make phone calls.
