Star Note II GT-i9220 – Specs Review: 5-inch MT6577 Dual Core 8MP 3G Dual SIM Android ICS

The Star Note II GT-i9220 is the new update to the previous Star Note GT-i9220. Take note about that “Star Note 2“. Chinese smartphone manufacturers now already made it even before the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is officially released. The Star Note is also another Galaxy Note clone, but this one has slightly smaller screen at 5-inch, running with a MT6577 dual core CPU.

The Star Note 2 is also one of those new smartphones with a MT6577 Dual Core CPU chip, clocked at 1.0 GHz. Partnered with that is a PowerVRTM SGX Series5 3D GPU that can handle almost any games or multimedia playback very smoothly.

It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) out of the box and supports the following languages: English, Italian, French, Spanish, Russian, Thai, Vietnamese, Arabic, German, Indonesian, Chinese, Turkish, Portuguese, Malay, others.

It has a 1GB RAM and 512MB ROM for internal storage that is still expandable with a Micro SD Memory Card (TF-Card), with max support of 32GB.

The Star Note 2 has a 5.0-inch capacitive multi-touch screen. Slightly smaller with the Samsung Galaxy Note and other clones. It has a WVGA resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, supporting 16 million colors.

Like many other China-made smartphones, this one also has dual SIM capability that supports all carriers worldwide with the listed frequencies from GSM to HSDPA (3G).

This MT6577 phone has a decent set of snappers, with a 8.0 megapixel camera on the back, and a 0.3 megapixel front-facing camera that supports Skype video call. These cameras are also capable on recording HD videos as well.

What really impresses me about this phone is its battery capacity. The Star Note 2 is packed with a Polymer Li-ion battery with 3200 mAh capacity. That rating can promise you to have 4-5 days battery charge on moderate usage and more than 2-weeks standby time. Who doesn’t want that superior battery life?
