StarMobile ASTRA/BRIGHT Price, Features and Full Specs

Latest StarMobile Android Phone Line Up - ASTRA and BRIGHT

ASTRA and BRIGHT are latest line up of Android phones from StarMobile and long waiting for ASTRA is over. Yes! It's already on the market and you can buy it at P6,990, the 3rd cheapest dual-core Android phone in the Philippines (next to Cherry Mobile FLARE and TITAN).

It is already available on StarMobile Kiosks and E-phone on the following locations, SM Bicutan, SM Sta. Mesa, SM Megamall B, SM North Annex SM Sucat, Glorietta 3, Robinsons Place Manila and partner re-sellers on the next few days.

Although it is the 3rd cheapest dual-core ICS Android phone, it is the first to feature a Mobile TV and sports an 8MP dual-camera. When you buy an ASTRA, a free screen protector and 8 GB memory card is also included so this is the best buy in the market today.

Below are the Price, Features and Full specs of the two.

There is a lot of options when buying entry level Android phone in the market today, one of them is StarMobile BRIGHT if you are in tight budget but if you have extra budget, I recommend ASTRA because it excel against local and global mobile competitors in terms of price and specs.

Competitors of BRIGHT in the P5,000 price range are MyPhone A858 (P4,999), Cherry Mobile W900 (P5,999) and FLARE (P3,999), Alcatel OT Glory X (P5,290), Nokia ASHA 311 (P5,490), Lenovo A60+ (P4,990), Huawei Ascend Y200 (P5,490) and Samsung Galaxy Pocket (P4,990).

For ASTRA, the competition is tight with local mobile brand Cherry Mobile FLARE (P3,999), TITAN (P6,490) and MyPhone A898 DUO (P7,499), all dual-core Android phones.

So, which one suit your needs and lifestyle.

Can you review a more suitable powerbank for Astra and Myphone A898, haay or a battery that can replace Astra's battery.

I just bought Torque Astra last Saturday, pretty good but I am disappointed cause the battery will be charged for 3 hours and lasts only 24 hours with regular use. Is this the normal life of its battery?

I think it is, compared to MyPhone A898 (1800 mAh) and TITAN (2350 mAh), ASTRA has the lowest battery capacity of 1500 mAh.

To fully optimized your battery, you should charge-discharge it for at least 3 times.

You can also set the screen brightness to medium and use power management.
