    Talagang confident ang StarMobile sa product nila. Kung makapag bigay ng price parang bigatin talaga ang brand. haha!

  2. abuzalzal says:

    It’s raining low ppi.
    And high price tag.

    Bash away folks

  3. pinheadoy says:

    My concerns are: 1. starmobile = unreliable. both engage 7 tablets I bought didn’t last 6 months.
    2. Only 4gb of storage. geez. My Nexus 4 had 8gb and that want enough.

    • Windows iDroid says:

      Ung Starmobile Astra ko nga nung pang 7 months na panay balik ako sa customer service ang dami kong problem na na encounter like ung screen kung anu-anu ung pinipindot, buti ung Sony Xperia ZR ko at Nokia 925 hindi nakaranas ng ganito. >.<

  4. pinheadoy says:

    I should write ” neither tab lasted 6 months”. Not “both”.

  5. vince says:

    i have a diamond. my only problem with it is that even with all the tricks i have googled and asked from other people, the GPS either doesnt work or takes tens of minutes before it gets a fix. while my old samsung galaxy Y right beside it gets a fix fast, and the galaxy Y has no sim card and the wifi is off

  6. Zobel says:

    Full HD 441 ppi, Dual sim, 4G, quad core, 3K and above mah, scratch proof, decent build quality, image stabilizer and excellent zoom. I don’t give a shit if it’s the cheapest processor they put in. Those are the only things I wish for a local phone. Is that too much to ask? Why can’t anyone build that?

    • kabayan says:

      they’re not in the business to please wanna be priviledged cunty fucks like you. wag maingay! mag rugby ka nalang, kid.

    I read some Stars are dimmer than others. And that *Cherries* are sweeter by December…

  8. eandom says:

    Basura naman. qHD at mahal pa. Jusko. Starmobile never learns

  9. abuzalzal says:

    Ang pinaka-consolation na lang ng buyers dito, pag nasira, maa-asikaso kaagad, kasi mangilan-ngilan lang yung mga bumili.

    Pero MyGad, @ Php10k, chipipay generic specs, pinalaki lang yung screen na hindi man lang pinaabot sa 720p, sino kayang utu-uto ang bibili dito?

  10. crackinthewall says:

    Sana i-release ang Moto G dito. Kailangan ng local brands ng competition pagdating sa “high-end” phones nila. Para man lang maging mas reliable yung phones nila at gumanda aftersales support.

    At $199, mga 10-11k siguro yun dito with taxes so ka-presyo lang ng mga Agua Vortex, Cosmos, at Diamond.

  11. tmcr7 says:

    Hi guys! Pwede ba malaman kung anu-anong phablets ang mabibili niyo sa ganyang presyo? Mas maganda ba ang specs?

  12. ahmad aldal says:

    Magtableya na lang ako kung ganito. Mura na may tsokolate ka pa. Saan ka pa?

  13. fanatic says:

    nyehh ang mahal naman nitoo maganda ba to?

    • efd says:

  15. hahaa says:

    kakapanganak pa lang dying star na! hahahaha

  16. Swabe says:

    Got Diamond S1 as a review unit.

    It was a decent, well made and solid smartphone.
    Crisp graphics and not laggy when it comes to brutal (graphics) games.

    And for those people who are bashing the qHD screen. Well FYI, It’s better than FULL HD when you only have a Mediatek 1.3 QUAD shits!
    It will drain yer battery fast and making your phone hot like every HOT MONAY from the bakery!
    Also, S1 reached 17K as per benchmarks! ( SO YEP DIG THAT! )

    The only downside of this phone? that 4gb internal. Coz not all apps can be transferred to External SD ( Not unless you rooted it )

  17. EPIC says:

    Puro kayo comment ng kung ano ano.Tanong lang, nagkaroon n b kayo nian? Puro hula.

  18. Zobel says:

    Kapal ng apog. Same price lang ng SKK Mobile Silver ang S2 pero 8GB ang storage and 720p pa.

    At bakit pareho price ng S1 sa S3?

  19. watevs says:

    kung makakahawak kayo ng SM u’ll never know what to say. its impressive.really!the design and display panalo! myphone and cm so china ang display. see it for yourself :)

    • Jc says:

      Try using Cherrymobile Omega HD 2 and Apollo.. kakainin mo sinabi mo at lilipat ka sa Cherrymobile :v

    • shella says:

      lol Jc, I have both Omega HD 2.0 and Starmobile Diamond S2. I can say Diamond S2 is better speaking of gaming, camera and video capute, and multitasking, plus a larger hd screen.

  20. ajieluz says:

    bumili ako ng starmobile diamond s2 last May 9, then June 11 nasira na yung touch screen nya, ang hirap na mapindot at kung ano ano lumalabas. parang sayang naman yung pera ko. sana maayos pa ng warranty nila.

  21. mcoi says:

    Me too same problem, sabi nung isa kong friend madali daw pasukin ng alikabok yung screen (na pareho saken) kaya papaayos ko lang to then benta na rin,

  22. Dors says:

    Same ung problem ko sa starmobile Diamond S2. may part sa screen na hndi mapindot. Hndi ko ma-access ang mga apps ko. Nakakainis na. Kakakuha ko lang nito tapos may problema agad! anung ginawa nyo?

  23. mcoi says:

    Hello, kahit anong phone na maupuaan/maipit siguro magkakaproblema yun. Tsaka Starmobile usapan dito bro, hindi SKK.

    • Zobel says:

      I didn’t say naupuan. Naipit. My point is na da damage ang ilang area ng screen dahil na flex sa masikip na bulsa sobrang laki ng screen. By the way, congrats nga pala dahil isa ka sa mga nagpauto sa Starmobile lolz.

  24. kevin john padilla says:

    I have used skk, cherrymobile and myphone already but I was disappointed cuz madali silang nasira with the SAME problems. Screens are like touching itself na you cant even control it. so I’ve decided to purchase SM Diamond S3 and as far as I’m using it. Didnt encounter any defects. Untill now It’s still working like brand new. I guess It’s worth the price..

  25. Bess says:

    I have a Starmobile Diamond S3 phone that cannot detect SIM cards anymore (8-mo old phone). Has anyone encountered this problem and fixed it? The SIM cards I’m using can be detected by other phones. I tried cleaning the SIM card slot contacts with an electronic contact cleaner, rebooting, and factory resetting but none of these fixed the problem.

  26. Zobel says:

    Sakit din yan ng Starmobile Flirt. Dapat na backup mo imei using Mobile Uncle Tools. If not better ask for help sa FB group ng phone mo na lang.
