Here's How Starmobile Engage 8 Looks Like:
Starmobile Engage 8 Specs: Processor, Memory and Battery
Since you've already known Starmobile Engage 8's cameras, let's continue with the processor. Engage 8 is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual core processor from Amlogic coupled with a dual core Mali-400 GPU. Memory is plenty with Engage 8 with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of built in storage.
These specs mean that Starmobile Engage works smooth and fluid with no lags and hangs even while playing resource intensive games. Unlike other cheap tablets out there.
Starmobile Engage 8 has a battery to fuel this gaming too! It's equipped with a 5,000 mAh standard Lithium-ion battery which is non removable by the user. Not that you really have to remove it. In case it ever experience a freeze in operation, a long press of the power button forces it to shut down.
Starmobile Engage 8 Features: Scratch Resistant, USB OTG, Streaming Mobile TV and Connectivity
Starmobile Engage 8 is the only locally branded tablet so far, to offer a scratch resistant screen. Engage 8 uses Asahi Glass from Japan to protect its High Definition display from coins, knifes or keys.
USB OTG (On the Go) is a necessary feature for tablets. It's the feature that lets you connect a broadband stick to your Android tablet so that you can access the internet if you're not in a WiFi zone.
TV Fanatics can watch their favorite TV shows using Starmobile Engage 8's streaming TV feature. Take note that you need a WiFi internet connection for the streaming TV feature to work.
Starmobile Engage 8 is a WiFi only tablet. That means it doesn't have SIM slots. But it has Bluetooth, GPS, microUSB and HDMI connectivity. Just buy a ₱100 HDMI cord and play your favorite Android game on your big, flat screen TV!
