Holiday Gift Guide 2018: Smartphones between PHP8K-PHP10K




Just a few days ago, we shared our list of smartphones that are priced between PHP 10K and PHP 15K, so now, let’s go all the way down. Actually, this guide should’ve been a list of smartphones below PHP10K, but we figured that there are a lot of phones in this price range so we decided to divide the PHP10K guide into two segments to make it more comprehensive and less confusing.

For now, let’s list down smartphones that are priced between PHP10K and PHP8K.

    There is also the Alcatel 5, it’s different from the Alcatel 5V.

    It sells for 8.5k and would have been the only phone in this price range with a USB type C port.
