Mstar M1 Pro has an MT6752, 2GB RAM and 5.5″ screen for $137


It’s been quite a while since a phone released with the MT6752 octa-core processor; the Mstar M1 Pro is one that happens to be among those.

The M1 Pro comes with a 5.5-inch 1280 x 720p display, and has 2GB of RAM to go with the aforementioned MediaTek MT6752 processor under its hood. The M1 Pro has a 13 mega-pixel camera on the rear to go with an 8 mega-pixel front, which does seem pretty attractive (ugh, only on paper – for now) for the price.

This dual SIM device has a battery rated 3000mAh, with Android 5.0 Lollipop taking control of software.

After a rush of MT6752 phones in the beginning of the year, Chinese phone makers (and perhaps even MediaTek) have shifted their focus to the new MediaTek MT6753 octa-core chip, which runs slower but has better network support. If you don’t need the added network support of the MT6753, the MT6752 is what you should look at, perhaps.

Coming back to the Mstar M1 Pro, the phone is priced at US$136.99 on Everbuying, which seems like a fair price to pay for an MediaTek MT6752 phone, especially considering these are a rare breed nowadays.

    They should release one with a FHD display.

        Lenovo K3 Note => Problem solved

          Not necessarily. The problem with the Lenovo K3 Note is the extremely high SAR value.

            BS. It’s on the same level with every chinese phone.

              The SAR value indicates how much radiation is absorbed whilst the handset next to the head.

            How is it measured? While it is searching for a tower, trying to connect the call or when already in a call? Or is it an average of these three. Everyone knows that the amount of radiation while it is trying to connect the call is at least 3-5X as high as when it is connected, so don’t hold your phone to your ear until it HAS connected. Finally the number of nearby towers will also influence SAR levels.

    Is there a difference with regard to network support for US buyers? I believe many MTK6752 phones work on 3G on AT&T/Cricket, but none offer 4G support. Is the MTK6753 different in terms of US coverage?

      When it comes. to 4g, both mtk6752 and mtk6753 both run on fdd-lte2600 bands.

    How would this compare to, in my opinion the one to buy if you need 6752, Lenovo K3 Note? 🙂

    The Lenovo k3 Note running the ROW rom is the one to get if you can get one !,
    I bought one a couple of months ago for my Son and it was good but the spamware installed was terrible, changed the rom and now its a great phone with OTA updates, the camera and screen are fantastic for the money, ordered another from gearbest on the 18th of July from the European warehouse which claimed was in stock and I´m still waiting for delivery, over 2 weeks processing, I probably wont buy from them again, very frustrating
