First Impressions:

The phone is a TANK! Upon holding the phone for the first time, it instanly felt how solidly built this device is. Its quite heavy too! Adding to its tank physique is the rubber matte finish which give you a reassuring grip to the phone. We noticed that it has dual speakers at the back of the device. Sound coming out from the speakers is very loud which we think levels a notch lower from HTC’s Boomsound found on the HTC One. This phone looks very promising. Many will love the phone’s tank-like construction but it lacks style and appeal found on Starmobile’s smartphones.


We will post a review in a few days. We will be flying to Davao next for a vacation. This will be perfect time to test the phone’s capabilities – battery, performance, gaming, and camera. Stay tuned! 🙂
