The Starmobile Icon is a 4.5-inch Android Jelly Bean phone with a qHD display (540 x 960) that’s protected by Dragontrail Glass Technology to give your phone’s display a bit more protection against scratches.

This phone is powered by the latest budget quad-core chip from Qualcomm clocking at 1.2GHz and sports a . It has the typical 1GB RAM plus 4GB of internal storage with support for microSD setup. There’s an 8-megapixel camera at the back that’s outfitted with a BSI sensor for better-than-your-typical camera for low-light situations. A whopping 5-megapixel camera reigns the front for some intense selfie shots.

The lowdown on this phone would be its 1800mAh battery which is a bit on the low-end for smartphones with a quad-core processor. However, if you can leave with that then the Starmobile Icon at Php7,990 seems like a good buy.

    bought my ICON last week. i was disapointed with the following:

    internal memory is less than 3GB (2.4GB to be exact)
    RAM 817 MB

    • lawrence

      Wag ka ma-disappoint. Malaki na yang available RAM na yan! ganun talaga. gamit ng system apps yung iba upon boot.

      Also, yung available storage na 2.4GB na lang, kasi gamit din ng system apps yung iba.

      First time mo ba magka-smartphone? hehe
