|Taken with Starmobile Play Plus • Filter and Resizing in-cam|
Considering the name "Play Plus", I was more keen on the play aspects of the device instead of delving into the usual text/call/browse capabilities. Take for instance, the camera capabilities. Since I'm a photographer, could I take it along on a lazy day and take interesting captures, process in-camera, and come up with some interesting images? Or take decent documentation photos for on the job oculars?

Audio-wise, the sound reproduction is fine; using a headset could make the viewing and listening experience much better. Ditto for listening to music.
I sometimes use my phone or tablet to make impromptu presentations to clients when a laptop is not available so I tested the PlayPlus for such a scenario.

With all things considered, entry level smartphone buyers would appreciate what this device can do, especially at the P2,290 price. Should you want to take a look at the other Play phone models or other variants in the Starmobile lineup, visit www.starmobile.ph/smartphones
