Written By Mykiro sor on Monday, October 13, 2014 | 2:08 AM

SKK Mobile V2, an Android smartphone that sports a near-bezel-less design plus rear-facing buttons, just like the LG G2, and—wait for it—a Samsung Galaxy S5-inspired heart-rate monitor. And before you ask—yes, the V2 is surprisingly affordable and will retail for just P4,999 when that arrive in Philippine stores this month.

Specs of the SKK Mobile V2 (Price: P4,999)

* Heart-rate monitor
* Dual SIM
* 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6582 chipset 
* Mali-400MP GPU
* 1GB RAM
* 8GB internal storage
* microSD card slot (up to 64GB)
* 5-inch IPS display  (540 x 960 resolution)
* 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash
* 5-megapixel front camera
* 2,500mAh battery
* Android KitKat 4.4.2

QUICK REVIEW:

-Battery is 2500mAH

-Camera is good depending on the light condition

-Gesture(s) is very responsive

-Double Tap feature or anti bugbog power button also working perfectly

-Heart rate sensor is also responsive, heart rate sensor will not continue scanning if your finger is not placed in the sensor

-Proximity sensor is working perfectly as I mentioned in this post about gesture(s) including the air gesture

-GUI is pretty neat and does have a 2 bloatwares which is the play app and the SKK that redirects to their website

-Speaker is only one, the other speaker grill is for microphone.. Sound quality is loud no need to install Viper4Android

-RAM usage is does not exceed half of the dedicated 1GB memory (400+MB is maximum)

-Downloaded apps can be redirected to your microSD for installation purposes

-Playing a movie like 720p and 1080p will not experience any lags

-Playing games in high resolution also will not experience any lags

-Battery performance will depend on how the user use it

-Both sim slots are 3G capable, can be switch between the two

-No heat experiencing while browsing, gaming, playing a movie but not tested it using mobile data

-Storage capacity is 8GB but due to system consumption it will lessen

-No dead spots on the screen while typing

-Downloading speed and browsing speed is depending on how fast is you network is
Wifi functionality range didnt test yet and the GPS though Im not a fan using GPS
Dial pad is just a replica of LG G2

-Recording quality (voice) is clear

-Screen quality is vivid for it is a QHD IPS Display

-Definitely you can grip the phone for it is just a 5 inches in screen size

-Screen is qHD IPS OGS display

Downside are:

-Led flash is not too bright

-When flash is on while taking a photo will slow due to the light beside the camera that burst the light and the autofocus feature will not capture if the camera is closed to the subject

-Changing phone launcher will disabled the functionality of air gesture and the knock on, it will work only on a stock launcher but using a stock launcher is much more presentable and low ram consumption <----(Downside??? =D)

-Another thing!!!! Be aware that heart rate monitor is NOT TRUE... Proven that it is not true.. You may try this... Open the app heart rate and place your phone with some space between the ground to the sensor above then start... Make sure it reads.
