Looking at the phone closely, the Starmobile Up has some resemblance with the LG G2 and the current flagship, the G3 only with thicker top and buttom bezels. We also love the white variant that we have here. White colored smartphones can be easily seen when reaching it in big bag or backpack. The phone also has a gold trim on the sides, front and bottom which gives the phone a nice elegant touch.

The LG G2 and the Starmobile Up

Display is gorgeous and we expect that from a 5-inch HD IPS LCD display. Colors are accurate, good viewing angles and it is viewable under direct sunlight. We also did our first Antutu Benchmark test and we got a score of 17,507, an impressive score.

Overall smoothness is very evident on the phone – scrolling on the apps, app transitions, and basic multitasking. We will be testing its gaming and more intense tasks on our full review.

That’s all for now folks! We will be reviewing this for a week as we make it our daily driver. 🙂
