The Starmobile Knight Spectra is the latest Android phablet to be announced for the Philippines, and here’s why it deserves your attention: it’s going to be the first among local phones with a dual camera setup at the back. You read that right, there will be two cameras on the back of this one phone.

Fancy getting your first Android smartphone? Put your java phone to rest because Starmobile just recently introduced a new smartphone that has all the starter features you will need to keep yourself entertained and productive. Here is the Starmobile PLAY Style. Say goodbye to your QWERTY keypad as the Starmobile PLAY Style packs a 4-inch IPS Capacitive display, which is enough for you to enjoy playing your favorite games or watching AlDub episodes via YouTube. What’s even more interesting is that the phone has a 1.3Ghz quad-core processor and a MALI 400 MP4 GPU. My only gripe with the phone is that only has 512mb RAM, but given Android Kitkat’s energy efficiency implementations, it should be good enough to keep the phone running at moderate usage. Apart from the aforementioned hardware specifications, Starmobile PLAY Style is pre-installed with Starmobile Sync 2.0. The latter is an app that enables “switchers” to transfer essential…
