Sir, hindi 18MP yan si starmobile Knight sofware lang enhancement lang ginawa diyan kaya naging 18MP, kaya wag mo sabihin advantage niya camera specially kung di mo pa ito na test. If you have friend na may ganyang unit at may alam sa mga parts and hardware ng phone pa check mo na tama sinasabi ko.

Wag niyo na lokohin ang mga consumer para lang masabi maganda ang isang produkto, ganyan ginagawa ng mga INTSIK sa Pinas para kumita lang at tayong mga pinoy ang nilalamangan ng mga yan!

My wife have Iceberg, and so far, she's so satisfied with it.. no probs except some adjustments on grips (malaki kasi). but this phone is something you should try..

Tama, kahit tignan mo sa Megapixel support ng MT6589 processor, hanggang 13mp lang ang supported, kaya napakalabo talagang 18mp ang Knight, saka kumuha ako ng pic kung tlagang 18mp dapat kapag zinoom mo hindi ganun ka pixelated

For my opinion, rather to choose MyPhone Iceberg subok na product nito at talagang matibay kahit kalalabas lang nito, infact maganda yung service ng customer service nila. Regarding sa phone functionalities walang problem kahit mga bigatin na games apps no lag / no delay habang naglalaro ka dito. Excellent for business matters din at bakit ka bibili ng smartphones if camera lang gusto mo rather to buy SLR camera for your photoshoot.

no regrets with Knight, ung sa photos naman na hindi raw maganda ang function ng baka pasmado kamay ng gumagamit. Hehehe. focus lang talaga kailangan nya. ang DSLR cams nga eh kailangan pa palit palitan ng lenses to have good focus. Nasa user lang talaga yan. so far so good with Knight! tama ung "check all the phone functionality before leaving".
