Cloudfone Geo 402q exclusive from Globe! Specifications and Initial Review

A few weeks ago mom asked for my help in claiming her 'free' phone from Globe's Loyalty Rewards Program. The list of 'free' phones that didn't have a cash out price were disappointing to say the least. IMO, the best one that was offered was the Cloudfone Geo 402q.

At the time, if not for this YouTube video. I wouldn't have known the specs of the Cloudfone Geo 402q! Thanks a bunch kuya! The official Cloudfone website wasn't even updated then. The Globe website didn't have a complete spec sheet either. It only provided basic info: 4" screen, 8 MP camera, Android KitKat and Dual Sim! If you do a quick search on the Cloudfone Geo 402q today, you'd at least get one result from a local tech site. The official Cloudfone site had also been updated to include the Geo 402q.

Anyway, let's get into it:

Cloudfone Geo 402q Box
The unit comes with an LTE sim. Should you wish to use it, you need to call the hotline and have them activate the sim for you. Mom opted out so I can't give you an ETA on how long it takes for an old Globe sim to become deactivated and for the new one to be activated. I assume it could take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours.

Android KitKat easter egg

Android KitKat easter egg
Cloudfone modified the easter egg. When you click on "Android version" under Settings > About, an "F" pops up instead of a "K" you need to make that spin a few times to get to the red screen pictured above. I haven't been able to make the 'puzzle' pop up on the Geo 402q though. I'm not quite sure why.

FYIs (For Your Information)

While the box only says Dual Sim, the Geo 402q actually supports one regular sim and one micro sim (FYI 1). I would take a picture of the sim slots, but that back cover is a little tricky to get off (FYI 2). Unlike other back covers, the Geo 402q's back cover lacks notches!

Specifications:
  • 4" IPS OGS Gorilla Glass Touchscreen
  • 3G, WiFi
  • Android 4.4 Kitkat
  • 8MP Rear Camera w/ Flash, 2MP Front Camera
  • 1.3 GHz Quad Core Processor
  • ROM: 4GB, RAM: 1GB
  • Dual SIM, Dual Standby
  • FREE Extra Colored Back Cover
Only available with Globe

PROs:

Freebies 
Extra colored back cover and free (already applied) screen protector!
Standby Time
Excellent standby time! Mom uses the phone for calls and text only. After the initial charge, the Cloudfone Geo 402q lasted a week before it needed charging!

Here's a screenshot of the batt stats:


CONs:

Nothing yet. Since I'm not the one using this phone I can't give any more insight. If mom brings up something I'll update this post.
