Another week, another reasonably-priced MetroPCS Android phone.
Last week it was the LG Motion 4G handset and this week it's the Quattro 4G made by a new company (at here here in the US) called Coolpad.
Coolpad is a brand coming from a company called Yulong Computer Telecommunication Scientific (Shenzhen) Co,, Ltd. in China. They've been around for nearly 20 years.
The handset sport a series of middling specs: 4-inch touchscreen (480 by 800), a 1 GHz processor (single-core), 1 GB of built-in storage (512 MB of RAM), a 3.2 MP camera on back (VGA up front) and it runs on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).
On the other hand, it operates on Metro’s 4G/LTE network so overall speeds should be pretty terrific.
Like last week's LG Motion 4G, the Quattro 4G is selling for $149 – and as for all MetroPCS phones that price is without having to agree to a two-year contract to pay-off the “real” handset price. Right now, it's on sale for $99 after a $50 mail-in rebate.
