Mstar S700 phablet with Lollipop and 2 GB RAM for $160

Mstar isn't exactly the most renowned or the most sought-after smartphone brand, but it does provide value for money smartphone products, just like this China based company's local brethren. Talking about the Mstar S700, though the phone usually sells for $157, a special coupon we've got hold of slashes this price further by $22, which makes it a phone worth a glance if you are looking to buy a phone in this budget.

The main highlights of the Mstar S700 are its 5.5 inch OGS IPS display, which sports a 720p resolution, which is decent for a phone with a screen this large. On the CPU end, we have a Mediatek MT6752 1.7 GHz Octa-core processor, which supports 64-bit addressing. Combine this CPU with Android 5.0 Lollipop, which can utilize the 64-bit support, and the performance should be great enough for a phone this cheap.

Other specs include 2 GB RAM, 13 MP rear camera, 5 MP front shooter and dual sim support. Mstar S700 supports LTE networks too. An added feature that is generally not seen in this price range is that of fingerprint authentication. This can act as a cool yet functional way of securing your device from unauthorized access. To power all these features, the phone packs a 3000 mAh battery, which should get you through a day of normal operation.

So while the phone doesn't pack any ground-breaking technology this world is in need of, what it does pack is a decent combination of specifications for a phone made for everyday use. If the price falls somewhere near your budget, paying $137 for this smartphone does seem like a good deal, though there is of course some risk associated with importing smartphones from China, as there is generally no warranty, and customs etc. have to be borne by the customer. You can get the Mstar S700 phone for $137, instead of the usual $160, using the coupon code S700 here.
