Starmobile has partnered with Smart Communications Inc to provide 700MB of data every 30 days for 12 months on every buyer of the Starmobile Play Neo. This means you can enjoy over P3,500 worth of free data for a year! It like subscribing to Always On 299 (with 700MB worth of data ) for a year. To get the free 700MB worth of data, you have to load up at least P150 a month which you can use for call and text.

The 700MB is more than enough for Facebook. Instagram, Clash of Clans and listening to your favorite music streaming device. You’ll be notified when you reached 80% of data limit in order for you not to overspend.

Our good friends from Starmobile are kind enough to lend us their unit for a short time. We have here the gold variant but it will also come in white and gold. We find the unit very comfortable holding it with one hand. Battery is removable and it is also dual SIM capable. We will give more details as we just received our review unit. Watch out for our unboxing and hands on soon.
