Which one do you like?
Torque DROIDZ Portal is packed with lots of features a tablet can offer. Just add P500 to the price of ENGAGE 7HD and you will enjoy call and text, Mobile TV and high definition video recording plus it runs on latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS.
On the other hand, StarMobile ENGAGE 7HD boosts 1280x800 resolution with 215 ppi and 1GB RAM plus a large internal memory (8GB). You will have more room for storage of songs and movies and faster/seamless performance.
Given the differences between the two, I like DROIDZ Portal, it's a bang for a buck while on promo, it's really a lot of features for your hard earned money. Going back to DROIDZ Portal SRP of P9,999, I'd rather go for more affordable ENGAGE 7HD.
I hope Portal will stay at promo price when DROIDZ Ultimate are on the market for 2013.
