We’ve got a bunch of high-end touchscreen phones locally available. If you think the iPhone 3GS is out of your budget, I’ve rounded up a number of them here — Samsung i8910 HD, LG KM900, Nokia N97 and HTC Magic — and compared them to the iPhone 3GS.
iPhone 3GS vs. Nokia N97 vs. LG KM900 Arena vs. Samsung i8910 HD vs. HTC Magic
The iPhone 3GS is yet to be released on July 31 and the Samsung i8910 also this month (no set date). The iPhone is locked with Globe while the HTC Magic is exclusive to Smart.
It’s a tight match, IMO, although it seems LG takes the price category and Samsung tops the hard-core specs.
So, if you had Php40k to spend for a phone, which one of these will you get?
iPhone 3GS price indicated is for 16GB.
Samsung i8910 HD price indicated is for 8GB (16GB version has Php36,000 SRP as indicated by Samsung PH)
A dash (-) means the specs are unknown.
microSD card sold separately
* All prices are SRP so they could all be cheaper, esp. in grey market.
