graphics processing unit (GPU)

JP Garmay said...

@kenmark all android phones have GPU wlang android phone na wlang GPU ksi un ang basic need to run the whole system

Mickel Jordan said...

tatapat daw dito yung myphone a898 na 5mp pero 2 led flash daw so ano kaya ang resulta sa camera and video comparison . Sa day performance maaring lamang ang Astra but night video baka myphone coz 2 led flash

Adrian said...

Na update na pla yung link dati po 150MB of internal storage/memory lng po yung OT997.. at 8MP with 720p video recording din po yung astra.

gdeath07 said...

read more sir. .the internal memory of ot 997 is 4GB ^_^

997 is far more better specs than the Astra specially compare the camera of 8MP with 720p video rec. .just dont know the Price ^_^

Adrian said...

The Starmobile Astra has the same specs with that of the Alcatel OT 997, except for the RAM (OT 997 has 1GB of RAM, while the Astra has 512MB), internal storage (the OT 997 has 150MB of internal storage, while the Astra has 4GB), Mobile TV (OT 997 has none) and the battery capacity (1,800mAh against the 1,500mAh of the Astra). I think the Alcatel OT 997 is slightly better than the Astra because of its 1GB RAM and 1,800mAh battery.

More about the specs of the Alcatel ONE TOUCH 997 below http://www.gsmchoice.com/en/catalogue/alcatel/ot997/Alcatel-OT-997.html

José Luis Dela Cruz said...

which one is better? this or Alcatel ONE TOUCH 997?

kenmark said...

meron kayang GPU to? im willing to wait if so. kaso big letdown naman yung battery. lahit 1800mAh man lang sana. sa laki ng display, IPS, with TV pa. baka d kayanin nito kahit isang araw

Adrian said...

Meron GPU po, nd pa namin ma confirm kng anung GPU, kasi nd pa ito na release sa market.

michael sy babad said...

This baby is gonna be a big hit if the price is around 5k and good advertising. Tv will surely look good on a big screen and a camera flash 3g, glass screen etc! Almost perfect for a budget phone. I think myphone is going to cry. Hehe
The main problem would be the battery life!

Jhonmark S. Naz said...

Dapat mas Affordable ito and mukhang promising din ito ah,maghit to I can Assume.Thanks god at di pa ako bumibile ng new phone.Kudos Starmobile!!!

Adrian said...

WiFI 802.11b/g lng po

jonisa said...

Adrian said...

Baka po, kng wala po download lng kayo ng Facebook app sa Google Playstore.
