Starmobile Knight Review–Sleek Quad-Core Flagship With 18MP BSI Camera For PHP 11.3k

Back in June, local mobile phone brand Starmobile introduced us to their ‘K’ iteration of their Android smartphone series – the Starmobile Knight. And as typical knights go, they come in shining armor – or in this case, flagship-level specifications. The device is packing the best that the brand can offer which includes a 1.2Ghz Quad-Core processor, 4.7” HD IPS Gorilla Glass display, and the shocker: 18MP BSI Camera in the back plus an 8MP Camera with Autofocus in front – beating out the competition in what seems to have been the ceiling of 12 million pixel images. Fast forward a month or so and we’re proud to say that the phone is worth the wait. We were quite impressed with the device and it might end up being a product that will go in recent memory as the phone that a.) popularized the 18MP camera craze (for good and bad) and b.) pushed the envelope of design for local manufacturers. So without further ado, hop on over the jump to check out our full (video) review of the Starmobile Knight!

    I bought this unit SMK 1 week ago and yung flickering nya is true. When you adjust it to it’s full brightness it will flicker na kagad, buti n lng napa replace ko sya agad to a new unit. Good news that the new unit that I’m using doesn’t have that problem. I just found out that sometimes matagal mag download ng games maybe it’s because of the internet connection na den.. Over all performance I’m satisfied. I just bought it for 9.2k sa and it’s almost cheaper now. The User Interface is good and when it comes to games 5 STar for me! I really like to play heavy games and it matched the quad core processor of the unit that makes the game played smoothly. The graphics and camera are nice. It’s just that when it comes to video recording ung camera nya ay malabo na it’s because the camera setting set to default that I can’t adjust. Still worth for the price.. Go Starmobile! Keep up the good work..

    And one more:

    I will be more than happy if the android version of this phone is upgradable..
