Viewsonic’s ViewPhone 3 Dual-Sim Slot Android Smartphone

One more sample of Viewsonic’s latest offerings coming out of CES is the ViewPhone 3. The significant feature of this Android 2.3 smartphone will probably be its dual-SIM capability and low price point of $279 unlocked.

On all accounts, this mid-market phone showed pretty bad lag when swiping between screens or scrolling. It supposed to hit Latin American markets at said $279 later this quarter, and it will be the first Viewsonic phone there. We can only hope it won’t be the last.

I can’t say how good the sales of ViewPhones 1 and 2, I really don’t know so its a mystery how well Viewsonic’s mobile division is fairing against the Huawei’s and other lower tiered manufacturers. Maybe, there are some markets where these were doing just fine, and maybe this 3.5″ 800 MHz single-core ARM Cortex A8 based phone will be a hit there. But from a sample for this CES 2012, there’s nothing exceptional about the phone except for its dual-SIM capability. Two SIMs allow for both business and work use on the same device, and there’s HSDPA connectivity along with WiFi and Bluetooth, and that’s practically all that goes for it.

  1. well i bought viewphone 3 from reliance digital pune 2 months back, and belive me it is the worst phone iv’e ever bought in my life. the phone hangs every now and then, goes dead . and won’t come back unless u remove and replace the battery.very slow. proximity sensor doesn’t work and in the middle of the call , it puts u r call on hold.secondly there are no service centers of this phone in india, when i spoke to reliance digital guys , they said we are helpless, and can’t do anything.

    don’t buy this phone, i’ve wasted 9000 bucks . worst mobile company

    now let me tell you about reliance digital’s world class excellent service, when i bought this phone viewphone3, the sales guys told me sir we are the exclusive importer of this useless brand in india, and if there is any problem we will service it ourselves. on 24 may i got a response from customersupport@resq.in.that you will be attended shortly, till date i’m still waiting to be attended.then about a fortnight ago i got a call from the reliance digital store, pune 020-41495301, asking me about the quality of the phone, i told him i’m facing all the problems, and he told me sir all the viewphone 3 buyers are having problem, and we are working on it. and he is still working on it. and that also shows that these guys where aware that this is a substandard product. be cautious, while buying from reliance digital, they will just fleece you, and then take you for a merry go round ride, coz they themselves are unable to find a solution. i can’t understand what is so rocket science , that they are taking months to respond. i hope reliance digital fans take a note. thanks

  2. Good looking phone, wonder when you bring this out in Australia
