We would like to commend Starmobile for providing their customers with freebies such as phone cases and screen protectors. In this case a buyer need to buy spend for the accessories. Anyway, upon opening the box and seeing the Knight Elite for the first time – its love at first sight! Just like our friends used to say “May forever“. The Knight Elite is like your dream girl – pretty, sophisticated and elegant. The glass front and back, in which by the way is a Corning Gorilla Glass, add elegance and beauty to the smartphone. We flaunt it at a gathering with friends and people can’t help but ask, ” Ano yang phone mo?“.
The phone is a fingerprint magnet but on our white variant, smudges are not seen. Since it is made mostly of glass, it is very slippery so we strongly recommend that you put on the case included on the package.
Let’s check button placements – volume rocker and power button on the left, SIM card and microSD card tray on the right, 3.5mm headset jack on the top, USB charging port and speaker grills at the bottom, 13 megapixel camera with flash and Starmobile logo at the back, and 5-inch display, 5 megapixel front camera with flash and sensor at the front.
Bottomline, it is one gorgeous smartphone. Just handle it with care if you already own one, We will testing this phone especially that camera and overall performance. Full review will be out pretty soon!
