DTC Mobile was established in the Philippines in June 2011 and since then they have provided Filipinos with reasonable and affordable mobile phones without compromising quality. Just last week I acquired one of their latest smartphone, the GT6x Astroid Speed 2G.

The GT6X boast a 1.3GHz dual-core CPU, Mali-400 GPU coupled with 512MB of RAM. It also sports a 4-inch WVGA capacitive IPS touchscreen, 5MP main camera and runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.

Key Specs:

  • Dual-Band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (No 3G)
  • Dual SIM Dual Standby
  • 4.0" capacitive IPS WVGA (800x480) touchscreen LCD, 2-point multi-touch
  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • 1.3GHz Dual Core CPU, Mali-400 GPU, MediaTek MT6572 chipset
  • 512MB of RAM

  • 3.5 Audio Jack
  • Stereo FM Radio
  • Multi-media Player
  • Micro USB 2.0

The retail package is pretty standard which includes unit, battery, wired headset, charger/USB combo, manual, warranty card and 2 screen protectors.

This is the second device I owned with MT6572 chipset (the first one is the SKK Mobile Neo) and I am still amazed how it performed in Antutu benchmark. It scored 10,756 which is just 720 shy of what the quad-core Cherry Mobile Flare 2x got during the review.

Antutu, 10756

Watch out for the full review in the upcoming days. I am going to use this as my secondary phone for a few days to know its performance. Please kindly advise me the things you want to be included in the review in the comment section below.
