The Torque Droidz Quad was announced as early as June together with the Droidz Motion, however it came on the market just this August. The Droidz Quad as you may guess is a quad-core Android smartphone. It uses the well known MediaTek MT6589 chipset with its CPU clock up to 1.2GHz together coupled with PowerVR SGX544MP.
The unit is housed in an all plastic body, I got a white unit and it seems to catch up dirt fast so I suggest you use the free Jelly Case upon using it. There is also a free screen protector but it is not yet installed therefore you can ask their technician to install it for you.

The Quad is a mid-range device and it is the first quad-core phone released by Torque, it aims to compete with the like of Arc Mobile Nitro 450QD and Cherry Mobile Thunder 2.0, all of which have 512MB of memory (you can see the full comparison here).
The Antutu benchmark is higher than the Nitro 450QD (14236 versus 13859) and as far as I can remember this is the highest so far among units I reviewed.
When I run CPU-Z I was surprised because it shows a whole bunch of sensors, however only a few of them are confirmed working.
Initial impression of the unit is OK, transitions are quite fast since the refresh rate is about 67 Hz. Expect the full review soon, so if you want something to be included in the review just head on in the comment section below and share your thoughts.
