S for Style
Starmobile expanded its Diamond series with Android phones that focus on style – that’s what the S in Starmobile Diamond S1 stands for.
First on the list of three is Starmobile Diamond S1 with a screen that “tapers nicely into the matte black rear cover” as Starmobile describes it.
Look closely at Starmobile Diamond S1’s curved edge display
Starmobile Diamond S1 Processor, RAM and Storage
Unlike most quad core phones from the local brands, Starmobiel Diamond S1 runs on a slightly faster 1.3GHz MT6582M processor from MediaTek coupled with Mali 400MP graphics processor. This combination will give you a very smooth Android Jelly Bean experience especially that its screen isn’t HD.
Don’t worry about multitasking with Starmobile Diamond S1 because it has 1GB of RAM for running more apps. Just bu a 32GB microSD card if you’re a hard core gamer since it only has 4GB of internal storage.
Starmobile Diamond S1 Design, Display and Camera
Aside from the scratch resistant curved-edge display, Starmobile Diamond S1’s matte back cover is also tapered on the sides making it look thinner and sleeker.
Even if its screen has a resolution of 960 x 540 Pixels only (not HD), it still display high quality graphics that seems to be right at your finger tips when you touch the icons because it has One Glass Screen (OGS).
The main camera is a 12 Megapixel shooter with autofocus, flash and BSI sensor while the front camera is a mere 3 Megapixel one.
Starmobile Diamond S1 Network, Connectivity and Battery
Starmobile Diamond S1 has all the usual connectivity features plus a faster than usual 3G mobile internet speed. However, it lacks USB On the Go (OTG) function.
Battery life won’t be a problem too. Starmobile Diamond S1 ha a 2000 mAh Lithium-Polymer battery that can last up to 250 hours on standby according to Starmobile’s comment on Facebook.
