Starmobile Review Round-up: Diamond, Jump, Knight, and Icon

After reviewing the Starmobile Diamond V7 we suddenly realized that we’ve reviewed all the smartphones in Starmobile’s latest line-up so far for 2013. Out of all of them the one that we still highly recommend is the Starmobile Knight. It’s definitely a local branded device that’s worth every peso. Anyway, see below for a quick summary of our reviews for each device as well as links to the full reviews. Thanks again to Starmobile for lending us review units and we wish them all the best with their next launch!

Starmobile Knight (Php11,290)

The Starmobile Knight features the best camera on any local branded device to date. It takes amazing photos even in low light and the color reproduction in truly world class. It also has one of the best builds we’ve seen and it truly deserves every accolade its been able to pick up in the last few months. Click here to read our full review of the Starmobile Knight.

Transplant the camera of the Starmobile Knight into a 5.7-inch phablet and you get the Starmobile Diamond V7! While it has the best camera on a phablet, we’re a bit worried about the price. It comes too close to a lot of heavy hitters with LTE. We also feel that the minimum processor at this price range should be the Turbo MediaTek one that lets you go up to 16,000 on Antutu.

Starmobile Diamond V3 (Php8,990)

The Starmobile Diamond V3 is the smaller brother of the V7. It’s priced better at Php8,990 and it has pretty competitive specs (1GB RAM, quad-core processor). Only drawback really is the display since it’s not HD.

Starmobile Icon (Php7,990)

The Starmobile Icon is the most affordable quad-core offering of Starmobile. It’s a compact and solid performer that can handle pretty much anything. Our main concerns with this device are the display quality and battery life (1,800mAh).

Starmobile Jump (Php4,990)

One of the nicest looking sub Php5,000 smartphones you’ll find. Internals are a bit lacking though considering that new devices that came out lately.

And that’s a wrap! We’re looking forward to seeing what Starmobile has to offer next! Hopefully they announce new devices in time for December. šŸ™‚

  1. if we are talking performance and specs, local competitors offer better choices and at cheaper prices than what starmobile offers. the only thing their line has going for it, and this very subjective, is the design. i personally like the aesthetics of the starmobile lineup. but even the cheapest device they offer, which is the SM jump at this point in time is WAAAY too expensive. lenovo and alcatel are already offering mtk6572 devices at 4.5k. to sum it all up, i would only recommend to purchase SM devices only if and when they go on sale and prices are cut by around 15%.
