Recently Oplus USA announced their latest quad core smartphone for the budget market, named the Oplus 8.38. This smartphone has a 4.5 inch, 854 * 480 pixel LCD display powered by MediaTek's MT6582 which uses a 1.3GHz quad core Cortex-A7 processor and Mali-400MP2 GPU. You also get 1GB RAM and 4GB of internal storage, expandable by another 32GB via the microSD slot. The device also comes with a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash, VGA front camera, 1700mAh battery, FM radio, GPS and A-GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and 3G connectivity with dual SIM support round out the rest of the specifications. The Oplus 8.38 ships with Android 4.4.2 KitKat is available now for approximately USD$75, which makes it one of the cheapest quad core devices with 1GB RAM available at the moment. The 8.38 can be had in three different colour schemes, namely black, blue and pink. If you're looking for an affordable smartphone but you don't want to compromise too much on the hardware then the Oplus 8.38 may be worth a look.
Xolo Q700 Club
Another smartphone aimed towards the lower end of the market is the Xolo Q700 Club. This is the first smartphone from Xolo to feature an Ingress Protection(IP) rating, effectively this means it has some resistance to dust and water. Specifically it has IP55 meaning dust cannot impact its operation and it can withstand a fair amount of water such as heavy rain or being dropped in a shallow puddle. However unlike some more expensive devices it can't be safely fully immersed in water. Like the Oplus 8.38 it has a 4.5 inch FWVGA display and is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, which is also similar specifications to the Xolo Q700S, but unlike the Q700S this runs on Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box and has a 5MP rear camera. As expected it has 3G connectivity and dual SIM support and since it belongs to Xolo's Club series, it has dual front speakers and has DTS support. You also get a 2000mAh battery, 1GB RAM, 4GB internal storage with a MicroSD slot, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. The Xolo Q700 Club comes in a choice of Black and White colour and retails for around USD$110.
Although mostly known for its Android tablets, Cube has recently released a large screen 'phablet' known as the TALK 5H. With a 5.5 inch, 1280 * 720 pixel screen and weighing in at 200 grams it's definitely not a small device, coming in around the same size as Samsung's Galaxy Note 3, albeit a little longer. Visually it looks a little like Sony's Xperia S with it's plastic bar at the bottom underneath the soft keys. Internally it's equipped with four Cortex-A7 CPUs, a PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU, 1GB RAM and 4GB internal storage with the option to add another 32GB with the included MicroSD slot. The Only 7i has dual cameras, 8MP on the rear and 1.3MP on the front for selfies. The device is powered via a 2500mAh battery, which is a little low for a device of this size. Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and 3G support via dual SIM complete the connectivity features. Bear in mind that the Only 7i supports the 900 and 1900MHZ frequencies for GSM and 2100MHZ for 3G, essentially this means it won't work in North America or parts of South America, which is something to be aware of if you travel a lot. The Only 7i runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box and you can pick one up for around USD$170.
