Yes, at PHP 38,500, it is still a niche product for a specific group of people in need of a satellite phone for their particular living/work situations. But, having a satellite phone is helpful if you need a device that can call and text even in the most remote areas in the country. This is great for people who work in industrial operations, venture out to the sea, and even during emergencies/calamities.

The device seems to be outsourced via Thuraya, a company that specializes in global satellite operations and communications. The Thuraya XT Lite has a rugged look with a 2.4-inch toughened Gorilla Glass-protected outdoor display, IP55/IK05 water, dust, and shock-proof resistance, and T9-keypad. It measures 128 x 53 x 27 mm and weighs 186 grams.

It offers an uninterrupted connection in Satellite mode due to its advanced omnidirectional antenna. This ensures seamless walk-and-talk functionality for calls on the go. It also has up to 80-hours of standby time and up to 6 hours of continuous talk time. It also features an easy-to-use menu and interfaces with 12 languages available.

It also has call barring, call diverting, conference calls, call waiting, closed user group, and voice mail. It also features GPS, BeiDou, GLONASS, Alarm clock, calendar, calculator, stopwatch, world clock, and a 2.5mm earphone jack. It can also store up to 255 contacts using its phone memory.
