Mark Lester Solis | Sunday, December 16, 2012 | | | Best Blogger Tips


This year, bulk of stunning large screen smartphones continues to emerges and wowed the crowd! One this is the StarMobile Astra, a 4.3 inch Dual Core Android smartphone with an affordable price for about Php6,990 only. We are now lucky because one of my friend has owned this smartphone and he gave me a permission to explore and take an actual pictures of his brand new StarMobile Astra.

The first time I saw this smartphone, it made me surprised because it is not like a cheap phone that we usually saw at the sidewalk stores that offers the same price with this smartphone. The price is so cheap for the specifications that it will gives you. Here is a short review that proved you of the fact that this phone could compete with other leading Android phones in the market.

Build Design

Basically at the first glance of your eyes to this phone, there is no such edgy design you can see. It is said that the appearance of this phone is closely look a like of the HTC Desire S in which I agree. It has a perfect 4.3 inch IPS screen resolution that will provide you a clear and edgy pictures to display on games or videos. On the front part of this phone, it has 3 navigation button at the bottom part while the power button is placed besides the micro-USB and Audio Port. Moreover, the back part of this phone has plain and no modernized design in which the 8 megapixels camera and the Antenna is being placed.

Performance

This phone is such a powerful and speedy smartphone. Why? well, it is armed and powered by 1GHz Dual Core Processor and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich that will enable you to play and enjoy HD games without worrying of a lag. it is also supplied of 512RAM which is sufficient for the multi-tasking capabilities of this phone. There is no such perfect smartphone, just like in the case of this phone there is a time that it hangs while using it but I think this is normally happens too on other Android phones.

Features

Just like other elite and leading smartphones, this device have lots of features too that is usable and definitely you will enjoy of it. First in list is it has Mobile TV in which you will enjoy your favorite cartoons, drama series and TV news wherever you are.

There are tons of features has StarMobile Astra have that will guarantee you to be entertained.

DO NOT BUY! The warranty is useless. We have had it in for repair on 4 separate occasions for problems with intermittent shutting down and inability to recharge the battery. Support has been TERRIBLE!

I was very satisfied with the after-sales service of Starmobile for two of their units I have: the Featuresmart and the Astra. Hindi pa naman namin naibabalik ulit after ng unang pagkalikot nila ;-)

Nakabili na me ng starmobile astra, wow ganda all in one talaga ang package nito. I'll keep you posted if ever I encounter na problema sa phone. Wala pabang jelly cover para sa phone for Astra, iniingatan ko kasi na magasgasan. and why yung nabili kong phone wala syang free ng screen protector, sa may Hello SM bicutan ako bumili, kahit sa SM moa di naraw nakasama yung free screen protector sa package. Thanks. Arman
