Smartphones under Php 12K Philippines (2022)

Not many people can afford the latest flagship smartphones or the new iPhone 14 series that’s recently released. With the minimum wage at just Php570 (for NCR, lower for provinces), the working class Filipino usually wait for the end of the year to get their 13th-month bonus in order to buy a decent smartphone.

For the most part, their budget hovers between Php10,000 to Php12,000. In this article, we included the smartphones released in the third quarter of 2022. Check out our list of smartphones under Php 12,000 officially released in the Philippines to date.

JM's highest stat is probably his curious ardor to anything tech—electronics and gaming in particular. He certainly heeds utmost regard to specsheet, visuals, and rule of thirds. If creativity and wit sometimes leave JM's system, watching films, anime and a good stroll for memes are his approved therapeutic claims.
