  1. For the social media light user who wants to stay connected all the time or for the CoC player who wants to play for 7 hours straight. All things considered, pwede na.

    Big battery should slightly help with Lollipop’s memory leak.

  2. bibili na lang ako ng mga bang for the buck ng phone kasi 3K mah lang cguradong sulit kahit 7k eh yan mababa specs batt lang malaki pero yung cherry mobile flare s3 power 4k batt pero maganda specs mura pa

  3. kung ano-ano nilalabas ng starmobile. di ba meron na silang ganyang model na may tv, yung knight vision na P9,999? bakit di sila maglabas ng katulad ng alcatel flash plus, asus zenfone 2, meizu m1 note or lenovo a7000 ang specs?

    1. Kasi mas malaki volume ng production nun kaya nkuha sa ganung price, siguro kung may Starmobile buong Asia, pwede pa

  4. Mukhang naka-focus ngayon sa digital tv ang Starmobile. Di masyadong i-consider ng mga tao ang digital tv sa isang phone. As of this moment, LTE, good processor, at least 2gb ram and 16 gb of storage ang mga basehan ngayon ng mga tao. Talagang off-guard ang starmobile and myphone sa mga local brand killers este zenfone 2 killers. Dapat less than 5k pesos ang SM UP MAX.

  5. Judging by the comments here, people have put themselves in a box with unrealistic expectations on what and how much a smartphone should be. Remember the fact that Starmobile and Myphone do NOT manufacture its own phones, and thus do not have the same leverage as Asus and/or Alcatel in the pricing wars.

    End of story.

    1. can you blame consumers who are aware of bang for the buck phones that are available out there? di na problema ng mga tao kung meron sila leverage o wala. kung meron better alternative, smart buyers will go for it. if you cannot compete, exit.

    2. It’s not the consumers fault when they want AFFORDABLE phones with BETTER support, Cherry, Starmobile, and MyPhone failed miserably as a local brand phone and they should be for shoddy support.

      Even when MyPhone and Cherry Mobile have a Nexus-like device i STILL wouldn’t buy it because it’s from them.

  6. these specs are for last 2014, excpt for the batt and lollipop. There is the cherry flare S3 power, octa and almost same specs for 5k only. mahiya naman kayo starmobile.

  7. Lol, if you dont have money, then dont buy it, bili kayo ng bili ng cherry, tapos magrereklamo kayo sa haba ng pila sa CC nila, bumili kayo ng bulok eh, magtiis kayo.

  8. mahilig ako sa games… as in babad ako sa games. like monster hunter, NBA, etc… swak ba yung starmobile sa mga gamers?

  9. I really dont care kung mdjo iwan ang specs nia, di nmn aq maghahanap ng super tataas na specs, kung kulang sa budget, all I want is a phone na tumatagal kahit mag babad sa games, khit d kataasan ang specs di nmn mabagal.. swak sa gamer n katulad ko. 🙂

  10. Yang Flare S3 power ay namimili ng headset size and kitkat pa ang os ang daming ibang apps and games na hindi na gumagana and sa mga lalabas pang apps

  11. bili tayo Philippine made smart phones ok pa iko kay sa taiwan o China made. tangkilikin gawang pinoy, ok naman good quality naman affordable pa.
