However with such low-priced smartphones, you do actually compromise on quality and features.The Corby II appears to be a smartphone but actually offers average features and you might experience a lag while navigating through the device.Its not even a 3G phone,text input wouldn’t be easy thanks to a cramped 3.2inch screen.You’ll be able to snap pictures but you might not want to show them to anyone, no flash here but you do get smile detection (Whats the point?)

The Corby II will be available soon in a variety of colors including black, yellow, pink and white.
