While Samsung, HTC, Huawei, Sony, Motorola and the rest of the Android big guns are flexing their marketing muscles trying to get the masses to dole out hundreds of dollars, Mstar is quietly making affordable Android devices that won’t make a hole in your pocket so big you can’t carry it.

Design and Function
The Mstar S700 design is actually very nice, with a nice aluminum edge which meets the quality plastic and glass surrounding it. The 5.5″ IPS 720p display is nice and bright with good color representation. The MTK6752 64bit 1.7GHz Octa Core processing power under the hood is enough to power your favorite games and apps. With a 3000mAh battery you should get a full day worth of power out of the Mstar 700 plus you’ll also have the advantage of fast charging like the Nexus 6. The 13MP and 5MP cameras take crisp clear and vibrant pictures with great detail.
The Mstar 700 is an unlocked world phone so it has dual SIM trays so you can use it in multiple countries, but as mentioned previously in the specifications section be sure to check network compatibility in the United States (or your country) before buying the phone for use in your region. The Mstar 700 also has the Google Play Store installed so it is fully Google ready and able to download your favorite apps just like any of the high priced Android phones without any restrictions. If you’ve lost or broken that really expensive Android flagship phone and need a replacement, or wish you had the money to spend on a phablet sized Android 5 Lollipop device, the Mstar 700 might end up being a very affordable option or replacement! At the low price of $149.40 with free shipping, it’s a better deal than having to buy a new $800 flagship and it has just about every feature the flagship phones have.
If you’re on a budget but wanting a nice phablet sized phone with decent specs, you can’t dismiss the Mstar S700 and will definitely want to consider it. With a modern design and budget price, this could be your next smartphone.
