    CM Omega Spectrum/MP Agua Rio specs for 10.5K? Napakalaking tanga lang bibili nito.

      i dont think tanga ang bibili ento. look at this, although HD din yung sa CM/MP mo,sigurado naman na mas maganda ang gamit na screen ng HTC, pati sa build quality, accessories, camera. marahil parehas ng specs sa papel, pero alam mo naman quality nung MP at CM, ang pangit ng camera, ang sagwa nung screen(kahit mga 2011 na flagship na mas mababa resolution, mas maganda pa eh). so depende na lang din sa budget cguro :)

      I have a CMOS at pangit nga camera nya but I’ve heard maganda raw camera ng MPAR. Imbes na yun dapat bibilhin ko kung di lang sana plastic ang screen. I’m quite satisfied with the cam on my Starmobile Flirt, though. Pwede panlaban sa branded.

      I still think it’s a big mistake to shell out that much for mediocre specs. Kung gusto mo ng super tibay na phone I suggest Alcatel.

    I don’t get it. Why give an octacore 1gb of RAM only? That’s like lugging around a genuine Hermes bag but taking the bus or UV express in your daily commute.

    Ok na sana kaya lang dapat ginawa man lang 8gb internal.

    ang problem sa MP,CM, STARMOBILE, etc. walang transfer of apps sa SD kahit may sd card ka. sa HTC meron.. =)

    • Zobel says:

      Where’d you get that idea? Naka dalawang CM at isang Starmobile na ako lahat pwede i-move sa SD card ang apps. Been that way since ICS, I believe.

    the problem with htc is the after sales support just awful! 3 months in and my htc one is still in the service centre for the purple tint issue and no estimated time of repair still.

    • d says:

      Yes, HTC after sales customer service is just plain BS. My butterfly is almost 3 months with them and still all they can say is “still waiting for parts”. WTF???
