Starmobile Engage 8 Quad Unboxing and Initial Impressions


After reviewing Kata’s tablet offering, the Fishtab 3, we would like to compare it to its competing tablet, the Starmobile Engage 8 Quad. The budget Starmobile tablet is only a few hundred bucks cheaper (P6,990) than the Fishtab 3 (P7,690) but enough with the comparison. An article related to that will be posted in the coming days. For now, let’s go on with the unboxing.

  • 1GHz Quad Core AllWinner A31 processor
  • PowerVR SGX544 MP2 graphics

First Impressions:

Nothing has changed from our first encounter with it. It is one solid and premium looking tablet with an affordable pricetag. We are just glad to know that Starmobile included a USB OTG (on-the-g0) cable on the package for faster file transfers from your tablet to your flash drive or PC.
