      Exactly. Kinda misleading article

    • Josh says:

      Wala lang. Bobo lang ang writer nito. Assuming. I read its source which was linked at the bottom of the article and there was nothing in it that says that this is an affordable or wallet-friendly phone.

      first time ko na badtrip sa site na to…affordable tapos walang price

    • zarne says:

      Dual Core, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB storage, 5 MP camera, No NFC, no LTE.No Amoled display. The Spec. sheet points to a mid range phone, and logic tell us that this will be priced as a mid range phone. Although “affordable” is relative, we can all conclude that this phone will be more affordable compared to the Samsung S4 or S3. We should give the writer a break!

    It’s the other way around. The dual sim version will be available this month and the single sim version will be available in July.

  11. Norman says:

    the title of your article reads “Affordable dual-SIM Galaxy Core now official” and yet you don’t know the price LOL

  12. Kaz says:

    Kayo ang bobo! Check niyo ang specs! Obvious naman na mura lang ito!

  13. Gardo Gwapo says:

    Nais One!

  14. leanne says:

    kakatakot tong site na to mga nagcocoment parang sa squatter nagmumurahan ..LOL..

  15. johngo says:

    Ano ba kayo guys, affordable doesn’t mean may definite price na.

    Meaning its price is less than the current flagship phones of Samsung like S4, Note 2, and S3. We can assume that based on specs, price would we higher than Galaxy Y or at par with Galaxy S Duos and Galaxy S3 Mini since this is not AMOLED, etc.

    Parang “Apple will release affordable iPhone in Q3”

    Ilang dollars???
