Starmobile Play Five Sells for Only Php 1,790 : Has Quad Core Processor, Runs Android Marshmallow

Hot on the heels of Starmobile Up Sense's market release, the Pinoy electronics company launched a new entry-level handset that I'm sure will be enticing to budget-conscious consumers who will be upgrading to their first Android smartphone coming from their current featurephones.

With official suggested retail price of only Php 1,790, Starmobile Play Five is by no means a powerhouse smartphone but it has technical specifications that are good enough to give you a solid introduction to the world of Android and social media.

To be specific, the device runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow - one of the more updated versions of Google's popular mobile operating system - with a 1.2 GHz Quad Core Spreadtrum 7731C processor, has 512MB of RAM, and comes with 4GB of expandable internal storage. The combination of these innards allows you to experience a relatively smooth mobile web-browsing experience, lets you run apps like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with no worries, and even supports light 2D games that you can download from Google Play Store.

As for its design and build, as you can see in these press photos, Starmobile Play Five is quite cute -- donning a polycarbonate case that's available in three colors, namely, Red, Black, and White.

Starmobile along with its rivals in the local handset industry are clearly doing the best they can to invite all Filipinos to embrace the smartphone experience and to enjoy the many benefits of a mobile digital lifestyle.
