Now we have MARS and PLUTO that can beat the heart of a dragon.

Then my friend Tammy (Plus Size Kitten) asked me where is VENUS? 
Yah lah! where is the VENUS? hmm… maybe its way to planet EARTH…

Review: S CSL Switch MARS Mi 450
I have been using this S CSL Switch MARS Mi 450 for more than a week now. So far the applications and functions are stable and I don’t encounter the phone hang when I am multitasking. The Snapdragon S4 that built for multitasking people on the move.    

S CSL Switch MARS Mi 450 - Front, Rear and Side View

Let’s start with the outlook, this Switch MARS is black, so cool and the back is matte for easy gripping. I prefer phone that fits well onto my palm and I can type at the same time. The touch screen sensitivity is operating smoothly, I don’t have to touch a few times to launch the Apps or when type. The visibility and clarity of the screen is acceptable.

I think I m not the only person who has more than one phone, kind of a hassle. This S CSL Switch MARS comes with Dual SIM and Dual Stanby. So now I can load my 2 SIM cards in a phone. My first time using Dual SIM smartphone, initially I’m not use to it when I had to two calls come in at the same time and also when I was using phone another calls comes in on the other line. Pretty fumble with it on my first day ended up getting missed calls, after checking the manual and familiarize with it then the problem solved. The rest of the functions are pretty much same as my existing phone so easy to adapt.

Tested the phone camera 5.0MP AF camera with LED flash (rear) and VGA camera (front) acceptable according to its price range, hopefully can improve further on the front camera. Downloaded some apps that I usually use such as Waze, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Line and WhatsApp. Since Instagraming is like a trend now, so I have used this phone to instagram many pictures, using both the rear and front camera. Pictures upload raw without filter and touch up. You can check it out at my instagram at kelly2988 or search hashtag #instaSCSLswitchMARS #SCSLswitchMARS.

  1. Nice post, great detail. I would have liked to see the costs that are associated to it so I could add to my business case justifi cations to use the technology. Keep up the good work! Great Job!!! Informative and attention keeping!

  2. 7 inches tablet phone for me is the most applicable size for everyone, it's very portable though the screen was not as big as 10 inches and they weight much lighter
