    Sayang, yung konti kong perang pinambili ng crappy android tablet ko, inipon ko na lang para dito. Baka mas useful pa ito sa business ko.

    Naku, di ko nga pala kaya ma-afford ang ganito kaya tiis na lang ako sa tablet ko at imagine ko na lang na mas mabuti ang graphics ng games ko dito kesa sa graphics ng gaming laptop ng mga mas may kayang tao.

      Good job, poser. Sana naman next time, kung gagamitin mo pangalan ko, gawin mon abuzalzal-fanboy…patented and trademarked na kasi yung pangalan ko sa patent office.

      Ako po ang tunay na abuzalzal dito, ako lang at wala nang iba pa! Ang number one fanboy ng Android at hardcore hater ng bulok na Windows!

    • abuzalzal says:

      Pasensya na, everybody. May split personality kasi ako kaya itong isang post ko immediately above ay yung android fanboy personality ko. Pero ang totoo, di ko naman talaga gusto android. Symbian talaga love ko!

      Ito lang ang tunay na abuzalzal. Cheap lang po ako.

    wish Samsung made the screen on the cover bigger. That logo just screams waste of space.

    Ok ito namiss ko na mga clamshell phones kaya lang 2 touch screens, android os and 1500mah battery triple kill combination for a very bad battery life

    kinda new + old. using this will certainly bring one back to the old days when clamshells and swivels were in vogue.

    but putting thickness back in there is not going to make it a choice for a lot of buyers.

    they should have made the looks of the phone a more modernish-look (i dont know if there is really a term “modernish” but i know you know what i mean) like making the screen bigger by decreasing the thickness of the bezels,putting front-facong camera,lte-enabled and by decreasing its thickness(i know it can still be compressed more)…

  10. I used to like clamshell phones. But I’ve been using touchscreen phone for a few years now. And I don’t think I would be interested in this phone anymore. Also, it’s quite thick. Although I really can’t make a fair judgment yet. Sometimes I feel differently about a phone once I actually hold it in my hand.
