After reviewing the StarTimes Solar Note with beautiful design and eye-catching appearance, as well as the Solar Mini with 4-inch display and 8MP camera, we decided to have a look at another device from the StarTimes chest, the StarTimes Planet Note.
The StarTimes Planet Note design is sleek… and super simple. At 8.5mm, the Planet Note is slim and easy to hold in the hand. Almost feels like you’re holding nothing ’cause the device is also not heavy.
The top right corner at the rear houses the big camera and the LED flash. The StarTimes logo can be seen sitting right above the loudspeaker.
The front on the other hand also has a StarTimes logo, a smaller one, that is above the display screen. Above the logo are the secondary speaker/earpiece, the proximity sensor and the selfie camera. The volume and power/lock keys are on the right side of the Planet Note. Such neat arrangement!
On the Planet Note, enjoy the best out of movies and other videos at any viewing angle with the 5.5-inch IPS display screen.
The display is a QuarterHD (QHD) display. QHD stands for one-forth of Full HD , which refers to any display packing a resolution of 960×540 pixels. That is precisely one-quarter of the number of pixels found in a Full HD screen (1920×1080).
PROCESSOR & OS
StarTimes incorporated a powerful, energy-efficient and low battery consuming Quad-core ARM Cortex processor on the Planet Note. This processor not only optimizes application functioning, it also improves network connectivity.
The 1GB RAM is slightly enough to handle multitasking. Internal memory is capped at 8GB. You can expand the storage to up to 32GB if the storage turns out not to be enough for your documents and multimedia.
This device runs on the aged Android v4.4 KitKat.
StarTimes put an 8MP camera on the rear. There’s also a LED flash for better imagery and adequate lighting during shoots.
On the front, there’s 2MP shooter on Selfie duties. The cameras on the Planet Note are quite okay but I think it’s time for StarTimes to step up from the 8MP-2MP combo.
The battery on the Planet Note is a Li-ion battery with a capacity of 2,400mAh. There is no fast charge but the battery should last up to 12hours on average/low usage.
The StarTimes Planet Note is an exquisite device with fine design and slim build. The camera and processor are good, same as the battery. The display is manageable as it also produces nice views at almost every angle possible. This device is a pocket friendly mid-range device you’d wanna get.
