Performance, Display & Camera
Perhaps the best factor of this laptop is its display. Despite having the same price tag of most 10″ notebooks in the market, or even cheaper, this one has a large 14-inch HD display. The display is a glossy TN panel with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and a 16:9 ratio like most budget notebooks currently in the market.The Starmobile Engage Aura runs on the Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor running at 1.44GHz and a burst speed of up to 1.92GHz. It’s a power efficient chip sufficient for web browsing, office tasks and casual games. Its relatively big screen is definitely a selling point. Above it is a 2 Megapixel web cam for video conferencing.

Storage & Connectivity
In terms of storage, the Starmobile Engage Aura comes with a mere 32GB of built in storage and a microSD card slot that supports up to 64GB memory cards but no hard disk or any disk drive. There’s a USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 port though where the user can connect additional storage. It has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for wireless connectivity. It also has a mini HDMI port for connecting the device to a TV or projector as well as a 3.5mm audio jack.

Battery Life
The notebook has a 9000mAh Li-ion battery that’s sealed inside its plastic body. With our standard video loop test wherein we play a 1080p video using the default video player under Airplane Mode with 50% brightness and volume through headphones, it was able to last for 7 hours and 9 minutes.
