The price of this JiaTong GT50 is just an attention grabber. Plus the specs it has to offer, well we cannot miss this one to be not featured on this site. Its my first time to hear about the name, JiaTong. I bet you are as well, but that’s okay. Let’s take this very cheap 5.2-inch phablet for a review.
The JiaTong GT50 is an Android 4.0 ICS device with 5.2 inches screen and Qualcomm MSM7227A CPU. It has dual SIM support and with 3G. Selling price is just $129.99 on Fastcardtech.
This JiaTong GT50 just reminds me of a Samsung Note clone. It sports a Qualcomm MSM7227A CPU clocked at 1GHz. Not sure about the matching GPU but we can assume that it can be a Mali or Adreno type.
It runs on Android 4.0 ICS out of the box and supports a couple of languages just what you can expect from an ICS device. It is dual SIM and is 3G-capable, totally unlocked and can be used on any carriers worldwide.
ROM and RAM is just 512MB. If this is correct, then the ROM size is pretty much small for me. However, that 512MB internal storage memory can still be expanded with a 32GB external SD card at max. The 512MB RAM is more than enough already for seamless multi-tasking.
It has a 5.2-inches screen, with 480 x 800 pixels (WVGA) display resolution. Its a capacitive multi-touch and since it isnt mentioned that it is IPS, I guess its just TFT. Not bad though for its price.
It has dual-cam as well, which the main snapper is a 5.0 megapixels. The secondary, and front-facing camera is 0.3mp. It has flash and supports video recording as well.
Overall, I can say; if you are looking for a note-type device, then you might want to consider this especially if you are on a budget. I do not know much about Qualcomm-type CPUs, but I guess this one can run smooth and perform nice.
