Starmobile has just announced a new affordable smartphone that boots the latest Android flavor — Nougat.
The Starmobile UP Prime is a budget friendly device with a 5-inch HD display topped with a 2.5D glass. It’s modestly powered by a MediaTek processor with 1GB RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. The main feature would be its 700MHz LTE support and the Android 7.0 Nougat software available out of the box.

5-inch TFT display @ 1280 x 720 pixels, 293ppi
2.5D Curved Glass
1.25GHz MediaTek MT6737 quad-core CPU
16GB internal storage
Expandable via microSD, up to 32GB
8MP BSI rear autofocus camera w/ LED flash
5MP BSI front-facing camera
4G LTE (700MHz support)
GPS w/ a-GPS
3000mAh Li-Po battery
143.4 x 72.7 x 10.15 mm
The handset will retail for Php3,990 and is hitting the stores this month in either champagne and dark grey colors.
We got this phone and based on the specs of this phone, it seems descent but having 1gig RAM for a quad-core plus the OS Nougat is quite a bit questionable. So we test it by having just the FB and Messenger app installed. It was fine and smooth and very responding but the longer the app is running the slower the phone respond. So we’ve check whether there might some update and luckily there are some and the latest was v12. So we updated the phone and all and it seems back normal but didn’t last long. So overall the 1gig RAM this phone has is really not enough with how heavy the OS and the the system apps of this phone. I hope they at least make it 1.5gig at least or 2 is better.
Okay naman kahit 1GB ram eh. Quad core naman ??sulit parin. Tska puro fb at social media lang naman tayo so kakayanin niya yan. Tska kung games pag uusapan okay parin hindi ma lag hindi rin nag cracrash depende nalang siguro sa game yan.
