The Disney Magic 1 is no Mickey Mouse handset
Disney has  allowed some of its magic to seep out and touch the smartphone industry. The very first Disney smartphone has been introduced in China called the Disney Magic 1 with a model number of M007. Done up in pink, the Magic 1 is counting on the Disney name to capture sales. The phone offer a 4.5 inch display with resolution of 720 x 1280 and is driven by a quad-core 1.2GHz MediaTek MT6589 processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage aboard. The handset has both an 8MP rear-facing snapper and a 2MP front-facing camera. The magic doesn't last forever though, as the battery inside the unit has a 1700mAh capacity.

The Disney Magic 1 is offered by DisneyMobile and can be purchased from Chinese website JD.com for 1999 RMB ($325). While the handset is the first Disney produced smartphone, back in 2006 the Disney D100 featurephone received two thumbs up from the FCC. The quad-band GSM model was sold in South Africa and Europe. Back then, some might have felt that skipping the U.S. was a goofy thing for DisneyMobile to do.

The Disney Magic 1 is powered by Android 4.2.1, offers GSM connectivity and also supports China Mobile's proprietary TD-SCDMA pipeline.

You should say its battery lasts as long as Donald Duck's temper self control.

Mediatek + 1gb ram = typical slow/laggy chinese phone.

The newer mediateks you will see next year will actually be good.

It shouldn't be that bad if you don't run more than one app on it.

Slow/Laggy? Has any of you people even tried playing with a Phone equiped with a Quadcore mediatek SoC? Truth is my current phone is only equiped with a Dual Core Mediatek Soc + Android 4.1 and this thing runs smooth as butter. Seems like some of you here are just spewing BS in every PA articles. Sheesh kids these days. . .

Its a Chinese phone so I wouldn't be surprised if it has a high radiation output.

That picture is off. That 4.5" screen phone looks the size of the Z Ultra in her hand.
