Starmobile Diamond D1, 5-inch quad-core Android phone with 3000mAh battery

Got a bit of a hands on with Starmobile’s Diamond D1 when the company recently showcased their latest devices to the media.

The Starmobile Diamond D1 is their latest 5-inch phone available in the market and sports an above average 3000mAh battery which they claim can comfortably give you two days worth of usage on a single charge.


The Diamond D1 is marketed a relatively slim device with its 10.3mm thin profile but comparing it to the upcoming Starmobile Muse, the Diamond D1 already looks chunky. Anyway, the 5-inch display only has a 480 x 854 display resolution but is protected with a Dragontrail scratch-resistant glass. It is powered by the same 1.2GHz quad-core processor as the Starmobile Knight and has 1GB RAM plus 4GB ROM with a slot for microSD.

At the back of the Diamond D1 is a slightly protruding 12-megapixel BSI camera with flash while an 8-megapixel BSI camera is manning the front.


This phone also supports dual 3G SIM cards. It runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and supports OTA (over-the-air) software updates. It also has Starmobile Sync which allows you to quickly transfer Contacts, Messages, Calendar, and other data from your old phone of any brand to the Diamond D1 via Bluetooth.

The Starmobile Diamond D1 is already available for just Php7,990.

    not bad except the display resolution. pero at 7990, tama lang siguro yung specs.

    • rey

      i have this phone, and i’m very satisfied with it 🙂 if i have to complain maybe it will be that the screen responsiveness and the accuracy of the touch screen specially near the edges.

  • Specially when your playing strategic games, it comes less responsive. However, its bit ok for it’s price….

  • Luke

    Same price with Starmobile D2? But different set of specs?
    The SM D2 is also 7990 according to yugatech

    • Camera 5mpixel Only, but 3,2oo mah battery which is good,
      while D1 hs 12 mgapxel and has 3000mah battery good also

  • marc anthony

    meron ba siya free case or screen protector?

    • giulia

      may free screen protector po yung akin pero walang free case tska wala pang available na case yung D1

      • Gerry

        Sir, ask ko lang, ok ba ang camera flash niya sa dim lighted places? does it compensate the 12 mp camera?

  • mariano

    sayang fwvga lang ang screen.

  • Dhandz23

    FWVGA means 854*480 pixels where WVGA means 800*480 pixels. Practicaly 854*480 is denser. And so it is better. And VGA means 600*480 and QVGA means Quarter of vga. So, VGA is certainly better than Qvga.

  • Ask ko lang po,which is good starmobile diamond d1 or starmobile knight?dont mind po their prices.yung specs po.


      sir punta ka sa setting/ display and font pili ka dun small medium and large

    Hi. Ask ko lang po, Bumili kasi ako ng d1 tapos yung message niya malaki, pano po ba yun mapapaliitan? Masyado kasing malaki e. I Hope you can reply ASAP.

    • Paul Edward

      I think you should download GO SMS Pro and make it as your default messaging app.

  • errol

    Hi ask ko lang po, kasi bumili ako ng D1, sa lalagyan it says 4g of ROM. pero upon checking, 2 G lang talaga ang internal. sabi ng seller, ganun daw talaga ang mga starmobile phones since my default apps ng nka install?

    • yup… default apps and the OS eats up part of the ROM.

      • ewing

        Sir , pag bibili ka cp … check mo settings nya..
        1. Usable internal memory
        -4 gig rom nga sya pero nasa 1 to 2 gig usable.
        2. Total usable ram
        -Pag nakalagay 1 gig ram , its not totally 1 gig yan. Nasa 800+ mb ram sya…
        3. Kalikutin mo na din wifi , bluetooth , speaker , screen pag may defect kasi hindi nag papalit ng unit ng mga retailers … repair lang ginagawa na aabutin ng dalawang bwan…
