WE headed off to one of the local HTC Concept stores and found several units being sold for only Php30,990. There’s option for 12 months zero interest but the price goes to Php35,990 with that option.

  1. Wow!!! Nauuna talaga ako magcomment hehe nakasubscribe kasi ako lol. Tinitingnan ko lang to kahapon :) supported ung LTE dito? Thanks Sir Abe :)

    • @edwin: wow, your momma must be so proud of you that you were the first one to comment…hehehe…peace (-:

    @Edwin: Hindi, wala pa yang LTE. Huwag mo lang basahin ang specs.

  3. Hehehe napangiti naman ako sa presyo “for only Php30,990”. . .for only ha? Pwede bang tatlo dos nito? LoLz

  4. “There’s option for 12 months zero interest but the price goes to Php35,990 with that option.”

    Paano naging zero percent interest yan kung ang difference sa cash only is 5k? tsk tsk.

    • Indeed – Yugatech shouldn’t be perpetuating these types of misleading marketing practices. That extra 5,000 amounts to an add-on rate of 1.34%, or an effective annual interest rate of 28.56%.

    • We have a law preventing vendor to pass on the credit card charges sa mga buyer. Pero ‘tong mga greedy store owner iniba lang nila yung strategy.

      for example:
      real Price P35,000.00
      using CC: P40,000.00

      pero ang makikita mo sa store nila
      Price: 40,000.00
      Discounted price for “cash buyer” : P35,000.00

      the government should do something about this.

    • The store owner is not being greedy. Unless HTC etc will subsidize the zero percent, the stores cannot just absorb some 12% (for the 12 month installments) of the retail price which will go to the bank. The retailers are probably just raking in at just some 5% profit in some instances.

  5. Kung baket kasi umuuso ang non-removable battery

  6. all but the bat… pra kang nka Ferrari na 5 liters lang ang tank capacity. :)

    • I know, right?

      But maybe HTC did some voodoo optimization magic to make this phone last a day at most.

  7. Can’t wait for Xperia Z! Haha better one!

  8. Pushing that much pixel would definitely be a battery hogger. I still see 1080p resolution on a mobile device unnecessary. Great specs though and I dig the color too.

    its really nice but in a month there’s the rumored M7 in MWC.
    Not in the same league with 5″ vs 4.7″ though, still..

    xperia z is way better and looks classier, more premium than this…tatak Sony pa…

  11. “Only” php 30, 999? Plsdont say “only” sa 30k, dahil di naman lahat ng tao milyunaryo at namumurahan sa presyo na yun para lang sa isang phone.

  12. Mahlditality

    May panorama ba yan?

    • hahaha of course, i think ur one of the id*** pipol who are amazd by the commercial of iphone haha, before iphone do it, almost all android phones out there do have panorama

  13. Kasing presyo nya ang iPhone 5. So, which one would you buy now?

    • noiphone

      i will buy the flagship android phone if i have that money. I am choosing a phone because of its functionalities, not social status.

  14. Does this phone have built in wireless charging similar to DNA, lumina 920 and nexus 4?.

  15. spongebong

    on ergonomics di ako makadesisyon kung htc butterfly or xperia z…
