      Anong activities mo, moderate user o gamer? Kung moderate user ka hindi pala reliable ang batteries ng lenovo phones.

    The Gionee M3 and THL 5000 are technically dinosaurs (ie Ancient) that they probably are not on sale anymore. Even the Starmobile Up Max is somewhat dated, although it still up for sale… It should probably be written off except that Asus decided to release their Zenfone Max with a Snapdragon 410 processor which is also 4-cores…

    Personally, I think 4000maH is good enough, especially with devices like Cherry Mobile’s Flare s3 Power retailing for just 4k.

      Andami mo namang sinabi. Nasa headline naman na phones with 5000mah battery di ba? Di naman sinabi na latest or the most updated phones basta 5000mah ang battery pasok sa usapan.

  4. archie says:

    6000mah ng marathon m5? Ilang oras kayang Coc at dead trigger yun? Excited na ako sa philippine price at release.
