    IMO kung battery longevity talaga ang labanan sa dalawa, kung base sa specs, yung thl ang unang mamamatay

  3. THL5000 owner here. The phone is quite good, performance is ok, though there are times it gets a bit hot when it’s pushing it’s processor. Aside from Hydroid’s theme (IMHO, the theme looks like a late-90’s Winamp theme) no problem so far. A few hiccups here and there, but barely noticeable. The battery could last me 1-2 days depending on my usage.
