Ever heard of SunTouch? If your answer is no, that is OK, I don't know them either until I came across in one of their kiosks yesterday. They are one of the new players in the local mobile industry selling smartphone and tablets.

One of the their products that caught my attention is the Hyperium LX9, a 5.8-inch Android smartphone powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6589 processor. The screen has 720p resolution and is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 2.

The internal storage is 8GB with the option to expand it up to 64GB via the micro SD slot. There is also a 2GB of RAM, which ensures multitasking at blazing speed.

The specs are impressive, so is the battery capacity of 3,300mAh which is quite rare even for global branded phablets. Almost forgot, you also get another spare battery of the same capacity in the retail package.

The front of the device is similar to Samsung design, there is a physical home button below the screen. Above the display you will find the 5MP secondary camera, earpiece grill, light and proximity sensors.

SunTouch Hyperium LX9 Back

The back houses the 13MP main camera and the LED flash. If you notice the lower left part, that is a stylus (they call it Light Pen) in its compartment. The 3.5mm audio jack is located on top of the phone while the micro USB port is on the bottom.

  5. Sir clarifications lang nakalagay kasi The internal storage is 8GB with the option to expand it up to 64GB via the micro SD slot. pero dun sa specifications 32 lang. Which is which?

  6. Sa Southmall meron din. Kakabili ko lang last Wednesday. Maganda sya sulit na sulit.

  7. nice specs! kumusta yung unit na nabili nyo sir mao? balak ko din bumili but I'm a bit hesitant sa quality, hindi pa kasi kilala yung brand.

  8. This phone is comparable to Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 at a lower price. I believe external memory is expandable up to 64GB. The screen is huge but can still be considered as a normal phone. The stylus is somewhat useless because the screen is very sensitive that it reacts to the slightest touch of a finger. Just a bit of a disadvantage is that you'll find it difficult to navigate using one hand. This is an excellent phone for people who are looking for reliable phone at a lower price.

  9. Maganda sya 1month na sakin yung nabili ko na LX9 panalo din yung net nya mabilis na at ito maganda sakanya rooted na sya... masaya ko na nabili ko sya....

  10. maganda tong phone na to same ng spec ng samsung s4 mini. sa camera sa back ok na ok MALINAE pero ung front na sabe 5mega pixel. hmmm. malabo eh prang hindi 3.2mega pixel ung front camera. hindi malinaw compare sa pa ung front camera ng cherry mobile thunder malinaw.

  11. Kumusta po ang battery life at ang wifi connections? Mabilis po ba?

  12. Malinaw naman po ba yung pics kapag naprint or nailipat sa pc?

  13. meron po ba tong otg??

  14. Yes OTG enabled sya. I bought an OTG cable sa CR King for only P30.00 and it worked perfectly.

  15. CDR King pala. Sorry, typo error.

  16. Tsaka rooted na rin 'tong phone na 'to gaya nung sabi sa previous reviews. Yung nga lang talaga, para sa mga mahilig mag-selfie, sobrang nakaka-disappoint yung front cam. Masyading malabo, parang QVGA nga ang quality kaya di mo rin masabi na megapixel yung quality ng pictures.

  17. yup ok naman ung battery matgal lng charge malaki din kse cap. ng battery eh. pero sa package included naman ung extra battery. :)
