  2. emman says:

    just another list of things that [i] can’t afford.

    pa-raffle naman dyan yugatech, para sa poor peeps like me :D

  3. archie says:

    Come January 2015 announcement at bababa ang price ng lahat ng experia.

  4. igniculus says:

    my Note 4 FTW! i’m loving the stylus/phablet combi… the things i could sketch and scribbled notes on it plus its feature rich android os…the things it could do, just amazing! (sounds like a Samsung infomercial huh) :p

  5. Sherwin says:

    Even though mahal ng Apple they have good resale value not so much for the Xperia’s. My first hand experience… Laki lugi ko sa Sony Xperia (more than 50% decline in less than a year) kasi labas sila ng labas ng bago in such a short period of time. Z2 and Z3 this year pareho?? kaya mababa resale value…

    • six says:

      gray market sellers are the ones that should be blamed for the fast dropping resale value of most smart phones other than apple.

  6. Miles says:

    Ventu for Bentley should top this list. Oh right, I don’t think it is available in the country. My bad.

  7. Easy E says:

    Dapat cost-to-specs ang batayan ng kamahalan. I’m sure Samsung will dominate. Lol.

  8. Edmar says:

    Bakit yung lg g3 ko 37k. Retail price.,

  9. ewanlangha says:

    snatchers take a good look and study the different angles of these phones
    these are your targets

    owners of these units, always hold them with both hands when using in public

    rich owners, well you can flaunt them for all you care, just don’t store your financial stuff on them unencrypted

  10. Greg says:

    There’s a Vertu store at East Wing, EDSA Shang mall. I hope Sir Yuga can hop there to review their phones.

  11. Hentai Kamen says:

    i can buy these!!!

    of course 5 yrs from now :p

  12. iANDROID08 says:

    The BlackBerry Porsche Edition was released here in the Philippines too it should top the rank

    • fce says:

      You were right.The BlackBerry Porsche is available at the Porsche Design Store at Shangrila Plaza since last October. The price must be obscene for the working stiff like us.

  13. Hen-Sheen says:

    Those phones are very costly. I wish they have an HDMI input for LCD & LED TV’s (or sold separately)….. Should there be a Consumer Electronics Crash of (insert year), I would buy those phones for under P8,000 or less!

  14. NotASheep says:

    what about the Nexus 6? the ULTIMATE android phone? and when i say ultimate i say GUARANTEE SOFTWARE/SECURITY/CAMERA ALGORITHM/RESOURCE EFFICIENCY updates that none of these phones will ever get next year.

  15. Lazlazuba says:

    I got the HTC One M8 32GB for 23k at Kimstore lol

  16. ralph says:

    why does iphone 6/+ are so much here in the PH? is it because of the TAX? damn!

  17. Jack De leon says:

    Anybody can shell out cash for these phones from a months worth of hard labor. In the end owners end up using the phone BELOW its capability. Only phone geeks are able to do so by exhausting everything the phone can offer.

  18. Denzel Llanera says:

    Di ko maintindihan bakit yung mga middle class working type pilit magka cellphone ng ganito kamahal. Samantalang yung bobong ng bahay may tulo pa. Yes its real. Add all this phones price kaya ko bilhin lahat and it will not hurt my pocket. I can still play the stockmarket using my cherry mobile pulse with no problems. Bht the G3 is sexy hehehe
