Starmobile Crystal is set to impress the fashion conscious.

If you are contemplating what smartphone to buy among the different models nowadays, then you should consider the Starmobile Crystal.

Starmobile Crystal offers you the complete essentials with a good Android phone like a fast 1 GHz dual core  processor, QHD 4.5 inches IPS capacitive touchscreen, 8 MP camera, 3G capability and WiFi among others.

Some might say that Starmobile Astra is better but the difference among them is that Astra has Mobile TV while Crystal doesn’t have a mobile TV. Crystal instead offers a screen with higher resolution and a faster processor.

What’s Good with Starmobile Crystal?

Let’s start off with the looks factor
Starmobile Crystal is made for those who want to have a nice-looking phone.

Crystal has a white body with a silver colored strip running around its edges with curved corners. For men who like black, there is also a black colored Starmobile Crystal which looks sleeker and slimmer.

Starmobile Crystal is also very light because of the plastic cover. It doesn’t feel cheap though. Using the black version will make people think you are holding a premium phone.

Faster and Smoother Operation
Starmobile promised that Crystal will operate smoothly and they lived up to their promise. Crystal’s MTK 6577 processor works well with Android Ice Cream Sandwich to give you smooth animations and transitions in the interface.

Although Crystal has only 512 MB of RAM, it is enough for normal phone usage and even in playing games like Temple Run 2.

Good Quality Pictures
Astra might have a mobile TV but Crystal has an 8MP camera equipped with Backside Illumination technology. This makes Crystal shoot clearer pictures during the day ad even during the night.

The front camera of Crystal is also better than most smartphones right now – a 2 MP camera. This will make video calling more awesome with clearer video from your phone.

More Battery Power
Compared to other phones, Starmobile crystal has a better battery capacity at 1700 mAh. Most phones like the Cherry Mobile Flare has a 1500 mAh battery capacity only.

The higher battery capacity of Starmobile Crystal is a plus factor since most people are tired of carrying chargers all the time. Crystal can last 7 hours on a call and 250 hours of standby time.

What I don’t like with Starmobile Crystal?

First of all, Crystal has no mobile TV. if you are looking for a phone with mobile TV, you should consider Starmobile Astra or Cherry Mobile Titan TV instead.

Aside from that, I have no other complains about the Starmobile Crystal. You can comment if you like.
