Starmobile UP+ Plus is the beefed-up version of the previous UP. The new and improved device now comes with 8GB internal storage and is only priced P500 higher at P5490 compared to the previous version. It is still affordable, I would say.
Starmobile goes back to the drawing board with Starmobile UP, perhaps they have realized that the original 4GB ROM is not enough for such powerful smartphone and probably the internal storage is a little smaller compared to its competitor within the same price category. After that additional 4GB, it is now named Starmobile UP+ (with a plus sign).
UP+ just like its predecessor, is a 5-incher running on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat OS out of the box. It is packed with a 1.3GHz Quad-core mediatek processor and Mali 400 MP2 GPU. It is equipped with 8MP auto-focus rear camera that has BSI and LED flash and 2MP front-facing camera.
UP+ offers tons of unique features; Double tap to wake and sleep for better screen access, multipoint gestures to easily open apps and execute commands, smart camera controls to allow the user capture images by merely talking or tapping the LCD screen, call and text filtering to block incoming calls and text for improved privacy, and battery saver for managing battery consumption.
