    meizu nalang ako kunti lang difference sa spec pero malaki sa presyo.

    Hindi lang price ang pinagkaiba. Para ka na ring nag galaxy series dahil sa chipset + micro sd at mas malaking battery. Di rin naman big deal ang 4gb ng note 5 dahil marami pang ram management issues at sapat na ang 3gb sa karamihan. Siguradong mauubos ito sa novotech once dinala nila to sa pinas.
