  1. so which is better Android One (CM, MP) or this?? is this also Android 5.1? display resolution??

    1. Android One is MUCH better than this. The battery may be bigger but software is even BETTER when Google finally perfected the Android System.

      That phone will never get an update unlike the official Android One phones.

  2. i had this phone for over a week, and so far im enjoying the double tap to sleep/wake feature of it, though sometimes you have to repeatedly tap the screen to wake it up (just a minor glitch i guess). the charge time is an ease of mind, i had mine charged when it reached 9% of battery juice and for over an hour, it was on its 82% and before I noticed, it was now on its trickle charge by battery doctor. the camera is decent and quite good even on low light conditions. the front seem to struggle but its good to know that it has hdr for both back and front. I just noticed that there were no “user mode” feature of lollipop unlike those internet article about the lollipop update talks about. i cant even download the FB app from playstore! so i had one tats like the design of fb app last year that doesnt let you see anything at all once your offline. that’s a minor glitch i guess (compatibility issues maybe). the 3g speaks for itself and its very fast anywhere I go (depends on your carrier i guess). i got mine for 3990 at Starmobile kiosk in SM Sta. Mesa. the phone was quite heavy but the looks are legit especially for this price point. some of my colleagues even thought I bought an xperia, which is undeniably the closest look-alike of jump neo. the phone was quite slippy on sweaty palms, but it could be addressed by the free back cover, or you could buy those rubber ring protectors. i cant find a decent review for this phone when i bought it but i bought it anyway. before i saw this phone, i’m decided to do the switch to lumia’s win 8.1 which is a fresh look for those looking for something new. Tell you what, lollipop is a nice update of android. its a fresh concept adapted from IOS i guess (especially the lock screen portion). Im even enjoying the ambient sensor of rthe screen. The brightness automatically adjust to your surroundings so example your on a train, it dims on a comfortable level. if you’re outside, it gives you a 25% level of brightness. Overall, its a good phone for the price point. it doesn’t feel cheap and and the phone itself is a performer. havent tried heavy gaming yet but i guess the quad core label will give you an average gaming experience. This phone gave me two thumbs up experience.

  3. starmobile ..ok n ok ang quality .. nasa user kng anu gusto nyo for me starmobile’s da best android mobile.. mas mahal s cherry pero good n good nmn..
