After the iPhoney I realized that I still did not have a phone that fitted my needs (wants)..

After looking around on my favorite websites where I buy most of my gadgets I noticed the Star A3000 Android phone. I talked to several sales people from China about it and everyone told me the same; It is an Android 2.1 phone with a dual core CPU, 1 core mainly used for graphics and the other for processing the software.

Some features of the phone:

  • Android 2.1
  • 850/900/1800/1900Mhz
  • Mediatek MT6516 DualCore CPU
  • 100grams
  • 110.5x58.5x13.1mm
  • 3.3” HVGA screen (480x320)
  • microSD slot for max 32GB card
  • WiFi
  • USB
  • 3.2mpix Camera
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS
  • TV (Analog) PAL/NTSC/SECAM
  • and more but it is in Chinese have no idea what it says.

Ok the TV thing is for most users totally useless in the Netherlands but I have even for that feature a purpose.. So I ordered the Star 3000 and within a week it arrived from China.

The phone came in a nice box with:

                • USB cable
                • USB Charger
                • Earplugs + microphone
                • Removable battery
                • User manual in Chinese with some google translated English descriptions.
  • Android runs smooth, the screen response is very good and even the sound of the build in speaker is nice..
  • The camera is a bit dark but who cares about that..

Why would anyone pay more for a phone if you can get this?




+ Cheap
+ Fast
+ Looks nice
+ Dual SIM (active/active)

- Battery could last a bit longer
- Camera quality
- User manual

I would definitely recommend this phone to others, in fact I already did..
