Top Smartphones which are under Php5K (Mid-2016)
« on: September 08, 2016, 07:54:51 AM »
For the Super Budget-Conscious

MyPhone my28S

MyPhone and Smart literally kicked off the new year with a bang as it announced their partnership to bring the Php1,999 My28 down to a mere Php888 — an unprecedented move that made its direct competitor Cherry Mobile launch its own offering as well. Who doesn’t want a Lollipop smartphone with 512MB RAM under a grand? This one’s still available at the Smart store and select offline channels for Php988 with a Php100 Smart Call and Text card. Check our review here.

For those who want to stand out

MyPhone My85 DTV

MyPhone went into the new year with a new premise of bringing more affordable smartphones, and their affordable DTV-equipped smartphone series is a testament to that. Notwithstanding the praises and the issues we encountered with its sibling, we still think that the My85 DTV is the better buy because it sports more updated specs for just Php2,999: a Mediatek chip, 2,500mAh battery, and Android Marshmallow out of the box.

Firefly Mobile Intense Razor

Up a notch is Firefly Mobile’s latest budget smartphone called the Intense Razor, and it definitely has some niche to boot – it’s one of the most affordable smartphones built with a Sony IMX camera sensor which takes good photo shots. Other great features include a nice IPS display, a 2,780mAh battery, and the Php3,199 price tag.

Cherry Mobile Touch XL 2

Cherry Mobile’s six-incher called the Touch XL 2 does not have a free bundled VR headset for nothing, as it’s one of the few local smartphones on this price group that sports a gyroscopic sensor. It’s a primary necessity when viewing VR content, and the Touch XL 2 delivers on this for Php3,499. Check out our quick review here.

It’s a five-inch device that sports Windows 10 Mobile out of the box, and is one of the most affordable ones you can buy today at Php3,999. Full review is here.

If you just want a Marshmallow device with great aesthetics, a decent performance, and a budget price, the O+ M may be the one for you.
