Surf all you want with Starmobile’s Play Neo!

Starmobile has officially announced their newest entry-level phone: the Play Neo. The Play Neo is a budget-minded quad-core, 5-inch smartphone with some very interesting freebies. Before we talk about that, let’s take a look at the specs:

Play Neo

  • 1.3GHz quad-core Spreadtrum 7731G
  • Mali-400MP2 GPU
  • 512MB of RAM
  • 8GB of storage, expandable via microSD up to 32GB
  • 5-megapixel rear camera with AF and BSI
  • 2-megapixel fixed focus front camera
  • Dual-SIM
  • 3G, HSPA+
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, OTA
  • 2000mAh battery
  • Android 4.4 KitKat

Okay, so taking a look at the specs, the Play Neo looks like your typical entry-level smartphone: 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 512MB of RAM and 5-megapixel rear camera. What’s really interesting with the Play Neo is its bundled with a Smart prepaid SIM that can give you over 3,500 worth of free data for 12 months. Of course, there’s caveats – you get up to 700MB a month, provided that you have an accumulated top-up (reloads) of up to 150 in a single month. Essentially, the freebie data bundled with the Play Neo is more expensive than the actual phone itself. That’s hard to believe, but that’s what it is.

What do you think of the Play Neo? Let us know in the comments below.

  1. mag CM kayo sige, paniguradong maghahanap kayo ng service center after a few months, hwag masilaw sa taas ng RAM iyon talaga pang akit nila

  2. Cm touch hd daming bugs,mag drop yung call mo,evry madaling malo batt. Screen touch medyu may problema. Service ng cherry one of the worst. If masira ang glass,bili ng bago. Frommy experience with cherry. Meron akong 5 cherry mobile at tab. Enough is enough.
