Smartphones with built-in DTV you can buy in PH




On-the-go television has been around for quite a while now but most of them, especially when it comes to basic phone, only have analog tuners. That’s no different with the ones found on common TVs at home since the adaptation of the digital television broadcast in the country is still not in full power. But, smartphone manufacturers are already thinking ahead and want consumers to enjoy crisp DTV on their pockets even there are just a few channels to watch.

Here is a list of smartphones that you can buy in stores now that already have built-in DTV, specifically ISDB-T tuners.

Bonus

While the recently unveiled ASUS Zenfone Go TV is not yet officially coming to the Philippines, we’d like to put it in a bonus since it will work in our country thanks to the universal DTV chip. It can be brought in our neighbor Taiwan for around Php 7,900 when directly converted.

    You forgot Knight Spectra also from Starmobile.

    It’s bloody expensive if you want it just for the DTV function though (~15k).
