    Wow, Moto G contenders from Archos! I hope they do bring these to PH, Archos tabs were decent (up until iFive, Ramos and local brands began to bring more bang-for-the-buck tablets).

      Eh di magpowerbank ka! Kung ayaw mo ng phone na to dahil mababa ang battery, wag mong bilhin. In my opinion, okay lang ang 4.5inch version nito since FWVGA ang resolution, tapos i-on mo lang ang LTE on demand. Mas mataas pa ang battery life nito kaysa sa 5.0inch HD version na 300mAh lang ang idinagdag.

    • tama naman c totoybrown, mababa talaga ung battery dapat nilakihan man lang nila kasi may lte feature pero masosolusyunan naman un ng powerbank
