    Picture says 320 DPI, description says 293 ppi? What sorcery is this?

    • xtian says:

      What’s the difference between the dpi and ppi anyway?

    • Catch22 says:

      You might want to ask Google what the difference between DPI and PPI is. They do not refer to the same thing. Unless of course the product’s DPI is equal to its PPI.

    so,are local brands are now scouting for the cheapest octa core mostly build in China to rebrand and sell it here in Ph?

    • Megastar says:

      SKK is a Chinese company which manufactures its own phones in their factories in China. It is not like Cherry Mobile of MyPhone which just rebrand phones from other manufacturers (OEMs).

    sayang lang lahat ng effort ng SKK kasi hindi naman available sa Davao, Pinakabago nila stock eh Platium at Memo2. Ayaw daw kumuha ng boss nila ng Marian units kasi mahal Anobayan! Sana iba na lang nakakuha ng franchise sa Davao kasi palpak sila dito!

    Kudos for pulling the price down, but the letdown is the 1 gb ram. even the battery.

    I asked about the warranty at the SKK store at SM SouthMall. I was very very disappointed that what SKK offers is a one year service warranty for the phones it sells and not a full parts and service warranty.
    No wonder they can sell so cheaply.
