If you love Facebook on your phone, then the INQ Cloud Touch might be the perfect phone for you. The first thing you will notice is the Cloud Touch is tiny compared to most other phones and easily fits in the palm of your hand. Do not let the size or plastic construction fool you though, it is still a solid performer.
You will quickly notice that Facebook is featured just about everywhere on this phone. If you love checking and updating your status while you are on the go, look no further than the Cloud Touch. The interface is clever, smooth and works very well out of the box. Not everything is perfect with the integration, but for a phone it is still impressive.
A drawback to the Cloud Touch is that the phone does not have hardware that measures up to other smart phones on the market. Its 600MHz processor is no speed demon but Android 2.2 still runs fairly well with only an occasional slowdown. Most applications will run fine but some of the more demanding ones will not perform so well.
The screen is pretty good for a budget phone. It doesn't measure up to what you will find on the top of the line phones, but that isn't the market the Cloud Touch is trying to attract. The screen is bright and clear and the touch screen works well.
Battery life is poor at best. Any use of the 3G function will drain the battery extremely fast. The Cloud Touch can last a full day with occasional use but if you are a moderate to heavy user, be ready to charge your phone at least once in the middle of the day. Not very convenient if you are constantly on the go.
