    Every year na lang may bagong models ang J, A series. Andami nilang mid range models. Expect na mga around 18k to 22 k ang a5 at a7 taz ang a3 is around 15k them by mid this year, mga 13k na a3 at sale ng almost 10k by the end of the year. Paulit ulit ang pattern even sa pricing. Just wait muna sa huawei, and asus kung anu ang pantapat nila dito.

    • archie says:

      Wala namang pantapat ang huawei at asus sa 4.7″ a3. Xperia compact lang ang kalaban nito. Wishful thinking na lang sa gusto pa rin ng high spec 4.7 phones dahil parehong wala ito sa philippine market.

    sige magpauto pa kayo sa mga trends ng mobile for sure hilong hilo na kayo lahat nalang ng utot ni samsung, apple, huawei, asus, etc sangabin niyo mga . as if sobrang in need niyo ang mga specs at features e mga basic mobile user at average user lang naman kayo. usefull tong mga phone na to sa mga devs and hackers kung hindi kayo kasali sa category na yan wag nang gumastos. mag ipon kayo sa future mga tanga may economic crisis sa 2022 mga

      i agree.., basta po maka text at makatawag ka nang maayos, ok na yang cellphone… wag na maghanap ng mga highend specs ng smartphones. sayang lang ang gastos…

    • woojin says:

    Ang pinakahihintay ko na feature – IP certification, IP68 pa! f/1.9 pa ang camera, maganda sa lowlight ok na pang long term phone plus its Samsung, the best in display Super AMOLED.
