    After the 7.1 update, I’m beginning to like Apple again. Torn between the 5S or Z1/Z2 need your help guys!

    Its not cheaper it’s crappier. Would rather buy a xperiaz2 Or even a very cheap rebranded phone than this brick made of crap.

      di ka lang yata makaafford ng iPhone kaya ang dami mo sinabi eh.

    • Abutroll says:

      Crappy pero binasa nya yung article. Umaasa siguro na baka afford na nya yung cheaper version ng 5c kasi bumaba na yung price Unfortunately di pa rin kaya so bash-bash mode nalang ulit. #weaklings

    For that kind of price the Sony Xperia Z1 compact is the better choice! ?

    Ilang GB na lang makukuha mo after system files sa 8GB. Sobrang bitin nito pang call text at konting selfie lang, few apps and files. Hassle pa-delete delete ka ng apps everytime you install new one. Just saying, coz I have an 8GB iPod Touch before. :)

    8gb? tapos mga so and so na mga 4gb lng ung usable storage?

    sa laki ng capacity ng mga apps ngaun kulang na kulang yan.

    well, sa mga apple fans, regardless kung ilang GB as long as may iphone pwede na…

    sa mga droid users… xempre may babanat na android is better.

    just saying.

    Kalahati nalang ma titira dyan sa space na yan. Dapat may mas mataas na cloud storage na free sa mga ganyan na phone. By the way, may 8gb na i phone 4 pa na avail sa globe (tama ba?). Syempre wala ka nang magagawa sa ip4 pag labas ng ip6 at eto na (ip5c) ang pinaka mababang model na ibebenta ng apple.

  9. Chrismun says:

    I’ll just wait iphone 6. Maybe thats my first iphone. Puro android lang ako eh. Nakakasawa na.

  10. mikko says:

  11. wew says:

  12. Boybanat says:

  14. cranium says:

    Ill buy this phone for basic phone functionality alone. Not suitable for multimedia. Calls and text maybe, just to replace my Nokia.
