If you haven’t noticed, the Knight Luxe does not have LTE, and that’s not an accident. Starmobile States that they are targeting a very specific set of customers with the Knight Luxe. The company also shared that they’ll have their own answer to international bang for the buck phones soon.

  1. Isa pa ito. hahaha! Kukuyugin yang smartphone nyo for sure…. Kukuyugin ng langaw. hahahaha!

    1. sabi ng SM: “ok lang naman daw kz may freebie upon purchase, an equally stylish FLY SWATTER” hehehe!!!

  2. nice if they’re coming up with an answer to alcatel flash plus and other bang for the buck phones. bilisan ninyo at wag na maglabas ng mga models na tulad niyang knight luxe na yan kasi lalangawin lang. sayang ang puhunan.

  3. Agree ako kay Patrick. Sayang lang bayad sa marketing. Delay the release of the phones and just focus on releasing product to compete with other bang for the buck phones.

  4. Matitigas din ang ulo ng mga local players natin….Ang natitirang market nila ay yung PHP5K below price range, huwag na nilang pangaraping magbenta ng ganyan dahil hindi rin yan papatok, gamitin naman ang natitirang marketing sense kung meron oist

  5. Luxe goodnight to this knight. Pasensya na kayo mabagal ang ODM gumawa kaya ayun anon petsa na saka lang mare-release. I salute the marketing team of SM. Hanggang saan nyo ba kakayanin? LOL

  6. Yung likod mukhang myphone rio 1…anong “specific target of customer” ang ibig nilang sabihin?
    Aaa siguro yung walang alam..yung madaling ma sales talk..gudluk sana merong ganun.

  7. 7 months ago this would be “Awesome” but for current standards, it’s below average. Our local brands might actually think we are that dumb and they are probably right if they got buyers from this.

  8. I was in awe when they said octacore for 7k, but cringed when it was MT6592 chip.

    Maybe, I can understand how you want no lte to cater to dem fashionable selfie-centric konyo kids with their wifi accts, but everybody needs lte somehow,no matter how slow or fast it is in their area.

  9. At least its lower than MyPhone’s Infinity Lite 2 2gb ram variant. But I would prefer the Lenovo A7000 or the Onetouch Flash Plus from Alcatel.

  10. Might be a good replacement to my 2 year old Knight. Many of the bang-for-the-buck” phones being sold are fk’in bricks with huge *ss bezels compared to this. And the camera quality of those phones are a joke, tolerable for some people.

    I just need to know if the isocell camera is legit. The battery also looks like a removable unit, someone please confirm. Don’t really care for the LTE, average processor or gaming performance. Just give us a great camera, great screen, battery life for a day and we’re good to go.

  11. potek na yan eto na ba ung pangbato ni starmobile? npahanga pa naman ako sa specs, pagdating sa battery…… BANG!!! 2050 mAh!!. hahha! tapos kitkat pero ung onscreen buttons nya pang lollipop?

  12. Kawawa mga maloloko ng mga local brands. Sa totoo lang kung wala ka talagang alam sa mga phones at 1st time mong bumili, ang basehan mo lang talaga ay ang physical at wala kang alam na bulok pala ang specs nya. Ganyan ako noon. Haist :3

  13. teka parang nagbubura ng mga comments…

    basura na mt6592 naging ginto pa… tatak starmobile!

    sa mga nagbabasa nito, wag kayo bibili nito!
