Starmobile Energy: 4-inch 1GHz Android ICS phone for PHP5,690 only!

Local mobile company Starmobile has just added a new Android smartphone that will join Astra, Bright, and Crystal in the lineup. I'm talking about the Starmobile Energy, a 4" smartphone that boasts a 1GHz processor, a long-lasting 2,200 mAh battery, and runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, all for an affordable price of PHP 5,690 only! Another budget phone that's sure worth a try.

The Starmobile Energy has the following specs:
  • 4.0" TFT capacitive touchscreen
    • 800 x 480 pixels resolution
  • Mediatek MT6575 1GHz single-core processor
  • GPU: Adreno 200
  • 4GB ROM, expandable with a microSD card (up to 32GB)
  • 512MB RAM
  • 8MP rear camera  with LED flash
  • VGA front camera
  • 3G/WiFi/Bluetooth connectivity
  • WiFi tethering
  • Mobile TV
  • GPS and micro-USB 2.0
  • motion and proximity sensor
  • dual-sim/dual standby
  • Dimensions: 126 x 63.5 x 12.22mm
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 2,200 mAh Li-ion battery
    • 290 hours standby
    • 8.8 hours talktime
Overall, it's a nice budget phone that has decent specs from rising local mobile company Starmobile. I've read from Ilonggo Tech Blog that it's a rebranded phone (originally an i-mobile i-style Q4) which is usual (like Cherry Mobile and MyPhone). But hey, you get a nice phone with a large display, a powerful processor, a long-lasting battery, dual-sim dual standby capability, as well as mobile TV, for only PHP 5,690. That's already a handsome deal!
