    Can I just have that battery and replace my Navi’s paltry 1500mah batt?

  3. abuzalzal says:

    Nice

    Ganyan ang mag-presyo, maganda naman at natauhan na kayo lol

    Now we have a competition!

    From the looks of it, mukhang mas OKa ito kesa sa CM Life at Amber, barring the diminutive RAM

    Ganda ng budget friendly smartphone coming from Star. Thinking if I should buy it as a gift for my Bro :D Nice move SM. 2000mah battery

    • abuzalzal says:

      Agree…I was thinking of buying a good smartphone na pang commute pag color coding, this one fits the bill. I don’t mind the less-than-sufficient RAM, eh viber, SMS, skype tsaka lite browsing lang naman panggagamitan ko, basta tatagal yung battery ok na sakin yun :-)

    • Justin says:

      @abuzalzal: Bili ka muna ng reading glasses, bro. Baka sabihin mo sobrang laki nanaman ng bezel nito. Hahaha!

  5. Jekk says:

    I think the only downside could be its display as opposed to the IPS display of Cherry Mobile Gem

  6. seph says:

    sulit na din yan kahit papaano..3k lang ang price pero ok ang specs.. ofcourse dont expect 1gb ram .dapat ginawa nlng sana itong low-end gpu at ginawang qhd resolution.sigurado bibilhin ko na ito pang backup phone :)

  7. Easy E says:

    I wish Nokia would price their android phones like this. Kaya naman nila eh

  8. dags says:

    Finally, a reasonably-priced phone from StarMobile! More choices like these will make consumers happy!

  11. Lian Riley says:

    i have this one already, for my own opinion sulit n sulit ang 2999 ko.. cheapest smartphone para sa akin na my quality! for nd k mgsisi if u buy this one,!

  12. GLOBEFUPSUCKS says:

    just bought mine kanina.. sa build quality hindi ako makapaniwala na 3k lang ito.. linaw pa ng screen.. medyo may kabigatan yung unit pero hindi sya mukhang laruan.. medyo may kalabuan ang cam pero ok lang.. gagamitin ko lang itong 3.5G hotspot dahil sa main phone ko na naka-globe, may cap!

  13. Franz says:

  20. kylekurt says:

    review naman jan mga pugeh…

  21. evans_01 says:

    hmmm ram lang talaga ang prob., kung windows lang sana to ok na ok, pero pag android 512 is sa tingin ko not enough, parang mag lalag talaga toh,, :(

    • wew says:

      simple solution:buy a little more expensive phone like flare.ang muramura na nga nung phone ang gusto mo pa eh 1gb ram.

    • chink says:

      actually enough na yung 512mb na ram esp kapag rooted at may greenify ka. sobrang dali lang naman magroot ng mtk devices. install ka lang ng framaroot. yung backup phone ko same spec lang pero wala akong napapansin na lag. sobra smooth. mas ginagamit ko pa sya minsan kasi mas matagal battery kapag ginagamit ko for music.

  22. evans_01 says:

    Sa bagay oo nga tama kah, pero decent naman yung mga ibang specs niya for a 2k nga phone,, ???? pero medyu in doubted lang talaga ako sa ram,, hehe mostly kasi maga android is tag 1gb kasi yung mga ram nila

    • wew says:

      well, target nito ung mga taong basic tasks lng ang ginagawa right text,call,internet,casual games, etc. kaya ok n rin yan sure n d maxadong maglalag yan

  23. anon says:

    this or cm gem?

  24. evans_01 says:

    hmmmm sa bagay uu nga, for basic task lang talaga siya, ^_^

  25. max says:

    Bat po d ako makalaru ng minion rush

  26. Antonio says:

    Ask lang po, does the update for SM Play into Kitkat applicable to all SM Play phones??? Or only to newer version of SM Play. I have this one, free from sun postpaid 350.
