Maxwest Astro 4.5 is a low-end smartphone with dual SIM capability. You can’t expect much from the phone but its basic functionalities. Dual SIM feature is a plus point as it helps you use the gadget more efficiently. It can accommodate two different providers at the same time. The phone has moderate size so you can use it comfortably with one hand and it won’t take much space in your pocket. It sports a 4.5″ capacitive touchscreen which has a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels (218 ppi pixel density). The quality of the visuals is acceptable. You can still read text and view images clearly. The touchscreen itself is pretty responsive and already supports multitouch. You can swipe through menus smoothly. Standard features like Accelerometer and Proximity sensor are included.
Maxwest Astro 4.5 is installed with Android v4.4.2 (KitKat) operating system. Looking inside, a dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 processor works together with Mali-400 GPU and 512 MB of RAM. The phone has the capability to handle basic tasks fairly well. However, it’s hard to ask more of it. It will struggle hard to do multitasking or play your favorite games. Apps can be launched properly although it may take seconds. Transition between menus won’t be as smooth and the delays can be somewhat disturbing. To store your files, the phone only has 4 GB of internal storage. Fortunately, you can use memory card (up to 32 GB) to expand the storage capacity. Connectivity features are pretty standard. It includes Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, hotspot; Bluetooth v4.0; and microUSB v2.0.
The phone has an 8 MP camera on the rear side of its body. It is equipped with LED flash, geotagging and video recording capability. The camera is not disappointing for everyday use. It captures fairly good images and videos. The results are good enough for social media purpose. A secondary VGA camera is attached on the front panel. You can’t take good quality pictures with this camera, but at least it still can be used for video calling.
