One word to describe the Starmobile Knight Spectra – GORGEOUS! When we took it out of the box, we knew we won’t be ashamed to place beside the Sony Xperia Z5 or the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. It looks so sophisticated and classy to hold as our jaw dropped for a minute by just admiring its looks. We just find the Knight Spectra to be a major fingerprint magnet. Just prepare a small cloth to wipe off smudges everytime.


Starmobile made some tweaks with its UI. We look into the settings and its has this Meizu-like animation and orientation. The display is an AMOLED panel so expect colors to pop.

After 48 hours, we have not taken any photo nor downloaded any apps as we are still taking more time looking the beautiful hardware. Good job Starmobile! Our contributor Elpee Abias will be reviewing the Starmobile Knight Spectra for the next two weeks. We will testing those dual rear cameras and how it fares on different lighting situations.
