Hands-on and Initial Impressions
We were able to play around with the engineering unit that they brought on the podcast and we were definitely impressed with the build. It didn’t look like a Php4,990 smartphone at all! The smooth chrome finish of the chassis gave it a much more premium look despite the plastic material.
The Starmobile Jump was also quite lightweight and not that thick making it very portable and easy to use with one-hand.
Over-all we’re okay with it. Our only apprehension really was the battery since it was just 1400mAh. You might right out of juice so make sure you have a mobile charger with you at all times if this is going to be your main smartphone.
