Yes Eclipse, The Android Smartphone That Supports Yes 4G & GSM Networks

Thursday 14 June 2012 @ 2:25 am

I’ve gotten my hand on Yes Eclipse about 2 weeks ago, it’s the only phone that supports both Yes 4G and GSM networks and it runs on Android. I’ve been using it daily since I got it, below is my view from an user experience standpoint. First and foremost, I don’t want to get into the debate of whether the term WiMax or 4G should be used. So, I’ll just use the term 4G for the ease of understanding.

Let me start with the list of the phone’s specification :-

  • CPU: Single-core 1GHz Snapdragon
  • Memory: 512MB RAM
  • Storage: 2GB ROM, supports MicroSD card up to 32GB
  • Band: WiMAX IEEE802.16, HSPA/WCDMA (900/1200MHz) & GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900MHz)
  • OS: Android 2.2 (Froyo)
  • Camera: (Back) 5 Megapixel with autofocus with LED flash
    (Front) 0.3 Megapixel
  • Connectivity: Micro-USB, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g, GPS/AGPS
  • Battery: 1500mAh Li-Polymer
  • Dimension & Weight: 122 x 65 x 12.9mm, 135g

Yes Eclipse is priced at RM1,688 which I think is a steep price for a phone of these specifications running on Android 2.2. Anyway, prepaid bundle plans with 12-months – 24-months contract are available so you can get the device at a lower price.

Yes Eclipse – Hardware

Frankly, the above technical specifications may not look impressive individually but I think it’s more important to look at what the smartphone can offer as a package. As a dual-mode smartphone, Yes Eclipse offers seamless connectivity on fully converged 4G and GSM networks. This is one thing that I truly appreciate as I can now switch between networks with just a tap. In other words, I can use 2 phone numbers on Yes Eclipse too.
