    can somebody do a mid-year round-up? like best phones (local brands) and best phones (international brands) or one whole list for everything? This will help a lot! Thanks!

    ang laki ng price difference ng S5 over M8 ah. dito sa Qatar, m8 costs 2799 QR, s5 costs 2699 QR, which means 100QR or around 1200 pesos expensive ang M8 over S5. bakit dyan sa pinas, laki ng iminahal ng s5 kumpara sa m8? tama ba presyo sa taas?

    • aha says:

      take note, yung M8 at S5 na sinasabi ko ay parehong 16gb variant. since sabi sa taas starting price daw yun, so it is safe to say na for 16gb variant yung sinasabi ni author.

    It really depends on your needs / what you’re looking for on a phone. As for me I’m currently using a G3 not because it’s the flagship but because of what it can do for me, and perhaps maybe because I wish to be different / unique.
