It is also one of the cheapest quad core phones I've seen in the Philippines that has an above average build quality. So let's now unbox the Ekophone Rogue 2!

Tah dah! Here it is and it's ready to go!
The Ekophone Rogue 2 is one of the few solid looking entry level smartphones. It has a sturdy overall feel as the phone is made out of good glossy plastic. The chrome paint on the side is nicely done and it seems that it won't fade anytime soon. The screen might be a little prone to scratches, but I don't have to worry about that anymore. Thanks to the 2 free screen protector included in the package. In general, just put a casing on this one and for sure it will last for a long while even with moderate abuse.
