The new addition to Starmobile’s Up series of smartphone goes high definition. Aptly named the Starmobile Up HD, it’s a 4.7-inch handset for Php4,990.
Although it has the same price that the original Up smartphone was initially sold for, the Starmobile Up HD comes with a better display resolution and a bigger internal storage. The original Up and the Up+ boast screens measuring 5 inches diagonally, whereas the Up HD’s screen is slightly smaller at 4.7 inches. All is well, though, since the Up HD actually offers a higher pixel density that makes texts and images smoother on screen.
