My first impression on the Switch STAR NEO Mi363:-
It's a functional android smartphone that is basically going to attract students and those who are currently looking for a backup phone. The specifications are pretty much similar to Ninetology Pearl Mini and slightly better than Samsung GALAXY Y in terms of processor speed, dual sim and screen size but there's definitely room for some improvement on the design and quality built. The interface experience on this smartphone is a little laggy and the OS (Android 2.3 Gingerbread) will not be upgradeable. Anyway, in future there will be upcoming models which will be preinstalled with slightly updated OS. Overall, I think the smartphone is pretty much still worth getting for FREE using the Youth Communication Package RM200 rebat along with the SPECIAL Switch Up! Rebate worth RM150.

For non Youth Communication Package consumers, Switch STAR NEO Mi 363 can be purchased at RM349.00. For those who have registered for the SKMM rebate program but expires, I just found out about that you can actually re-apply a month after the expiry date. I hope this helps! :)
