The Uprising Star: Starmobile UP

Hi friends! It's my first time reviewing a gadget. hehe
So first, here's a back story on what happened. Yesterday(9/24/14), somehow I impulsively thought of selling my Samsung Galaxy Tablet 2 10.1(P5100) since I already have my Samsung Galaxy S5. I posted my unit on BUY AND SELL TUGUEGARAO group on facebook and I did get a lot of people interested since my price was PhP 5,500 only. Just after an hour I got a deal with someone who was also a nurse. We chatted and made a deal to meet up at Tuguegarao. Supposedly, I didn't want to buy another phone but then I thought I still need one even I have my S5. So after it was sold, I went straight to Memoxpress Jr. Beforehand, I already read reviews about this product that's why I bought it and it's also below PhP 5,500.

Verdict: 4/5
I like that it's not heavy even its size is almost the same with my galaxy S5. I love the screen and it amazed me that our local smartphones can duel on those leading smartphones in the market. Honestly, you thought you've paid about PhP 20,000 with it's great specs, fast internet browsing even on 3G network. According to the product page in Starmobile, the Up will also have the ability to be woken up from sleep by just tapping on the screen. Multipoint gestures. I just can't rate it perfectly because It only has 4gb internal memory and when I connected it on the computer it the space is about 2GB only. I guess the preinstalled apps and software got the other 2gb space.Anyway, there's no problem in that too because you can just buy an external micro sd card up to 32GB. Also, it's available in black or white colors only.
