    Does the purchase of this unit on the said retailer comes with a warranty?

    • Carl Lamiel says:

      The units are apparently imported similar to the listing on another e-commerce website, so it’s likely that these will become gray market units once they arrive.

      the question is answerable by Yes or No ang dami ng sinabi, pano naman yung iba na di familiar sa gray market? edi mag search pa sila sa google.

    • blaod says:

      Hi We offer 1 yr service warranty. – Widget City team

    • 1 year warranty nman pala eh. yun nga lang masusungit kc mga tao dyan sa widget. kaya minsan nakakawalang gana bumili. bumibili lang talaga ako dyan dahil mura ang presyo.

    • bolakbol says:

      1 year SERVICE WARRANTY lang yan sa widget city. ibig sabihin para lang pinaayos mo sa kung saan-saan na cellshop na hindi asus certified na technician at di mo alam kung anong piyesa ang sinasalpak nila.

    • BBINYL says:

      If you’re deciding to buy a unit because of WidgetCity’s service warranty, then don’t do it.

      Bought a Xperia Z2 compact from them before. Dropped my phone and cracked the back of the phone. Requested them to fix my unit, and I even advised that I would pay for the parts (service warranty only covers labor).

      But to my surprise, they would not accept my unit because the launcher is different. WHAT? So I told them I could reset back to factory defaults, but advised me that the warranty is already void due to the custom launcher. WTF! And true, napaka-sungit pa ng mga tao diyan.

    • jp says:

      Grabe naman pala yang Widget City. Magaling lang magbenta. Hindi marunong tumupad sa sinasabi. I-dahilan ba yung launcher? Mahiya naman kayo.

    If it’s imported, the SIM cards may not work with this unit.
