    • ShiMun says:

      bungog basahin mo yung title

      mga feature phone yan (java phones with features of smartphones)

    • Name: garz says:

      Ah. I see. Looking at the top bar in the phones’ screen, I did realize they’re not Android, as you have mentioned. I guess I was fooled by the TouchWiz and the Nature UX wallpaper. I thought Android can be feature phones too.

      Thank you for pointing that out, oh Wise One.

    How are these fones compared with Cherry Mobile and Myphone aside all made assembled in China.

  5. ferdinand marte says:

    BWAHAHAH! nakasuka ang presyo.Really, emerging market ba ang Philippines. With local brands giving us smartphones at those prices and Filipinos owning them, eh hindi naman talaga. Nakapababa naman tingin ni Sammy sa atin mga pinoy. Hoi Sammy i-level up naman ang tingin ninyo sa Pinas. Smart na kami mga pinoys buyers ngayon. We want smartphones costing 3-5K!!!!

      ano daw?

    • Phillip says:

      Kelangan daw nya ng phone worth 3-5k, therefore smart daw sya.

    • PolPut says:

      matalino? pilipino? 3-5000 budget?

      ge ikaw l….kaw na ang matalino and the rest oh Flare users

    • Ronnie says:

      Grabe naman, malay mo hindi lumabas sa Philippines. Even India has so many white brands. To be honest ikaw nalang gumamit ng cherry / myphone / torque / dtc / kaya and etc phone mo na

      1. CRAPPY CUSTOMER SUPPORT
      2. Service Centers?
      3. After Sales Updates?
      4. Quality Assurance?

      Tignan mo cherry mobile, sikat kasi mura pero bago ka bumili sana makita mo muna yung ahas na pila nila sa service center nila.

    • Ram says:

      Sammy, merong mga local brands na Android for 3,999 to 8k.. Yun na lang ang hibilhin namin… So pls, wag nyo na kaming lokohing mga consumers!!

    • chacha says:

      @ Ronnie
      Sa Sm City North Cyberzone macocompare mo ung
      magkatapat na cervice Center ng Myphone at Cherry Mobile
      presently, grabe sa scale: na isa dalawa lng na tao sa Myphone sa Cherry nasa beinte, haha

    • garz says:

      If you find these phones ridiculous for your tastes then Samsung isn’t clearly intending to shove these phones up your mouths. These phones are for those who doesn’t give a damn whether it’s Android or not; as long as they can use it to call and text, and some other basic stuff.

  6. loadex says:

    Then Lenovo or Huawei , even CM or Myphone powered by Android with same price range nalang bibilhin. Apps makes the difference, hindi lang naman facebook at twitter ang kailangan ng mga user now a days.

  7. chacha says:

    nasaan ba marketing ng Samsung dito? nagbabasa ba kayo ng blogs na nagfefeature ung local smartphones, di ba kayo nagpupunta sa mall? ung feature phones hawak na ni Nokia, aagawin mo p b sa knila un?
    haay Sammy di kami emerging market nyo nyan, mga android user na rin po karamihan ng pinoy. kaya pala angmahal ng benta nyo ng smartphone niyo dito:(

  8. jayr says:

    eh mga walang utak pala kayo eh…..pdeh bang manghiram muna kayo ng utak bago kayo mag comment dito..hindi niyo ba nabasa

    “No information on local availabilty”..
    In other words, walang plano si Samsung na mag release niyan dito. Post lang yan dito kasi nakita sa internet..
    At saka, compare nyo sa android phone..Bakit?.smartphone ba to?.. Alamin niyo kalayan ng India, para malaman niyo yung dahilan kung bakit doon ni-release yung phone.. Galing niyong gumamit ng computer sa pag-comment.di naman guma.gamit ng isip…
