Together with the Starmobile UP Prime, the company also refreshed their Play line-up by introducing the new Starmobile Play Dash.

This handset joins the Play Lite, Play Boost and Play Five on Starmobile’s ultra-budget category. But unlike its older brother Starmobile Play Click, this smartphone doesn’t seem to come bundled with a wireless carrier.

The Starmobile Play Dash also joins the recently announced Cloudfone Go Connect in the low-end market. Both of these devices do cover the essentials, with only this one having a better set of features on paper.

Starmobile’s bet has a larger 4.5-inch TFT display than the Go Connect’s 4-inch panel. It also has a sharper 8-megapixel and 2-megapixel set of cameras. These advantages aren’t really surprising considering that it is priced higher at Php2,490, while the Cloudfone Go Connect only costs Php2,199.
