The people have spoken with their wallets
Starmobile’s Knight Luxe certainly has its fair share of detractors, especially since it plays in a very cutthroat price segment that many international brands currently play in. Well, it seems that a majority of users don’t agree, if Starmobile’s internal numbers are to be believed – according to the company, around 34% of all Android devices they’ve sold from the middle of May to the middle of June have been the Knight Luxe and the UP HD.
This is surprising because according to research firm GfK, a majority of sales of phones from Philippine brands typically range from 3K below, with phones that are around 3.5 to 4 inches.
Starmobile also confirmed that the Knight Luxe is one of the first phones in the South Asia region that’s equipped with Samsung’s ISOCELL camera sensor (aside from their own devices).
