      That’s me Antonio Escuadro, Filipino also but lives mostly in SanFo. At nandito sa pinas to visit my petron stations. I also have stores of cp in greenhills. Why, inggit ka at meron ako vertu ti, na nabili ko sa California ng 11k us dollars. Don’t be so ridiculously pinoy style, dahil ako businessman, chicken lang yun para sa mga nagtratrabaho araw at gabi, ikaw I don’t know if u have any sensible work at all, rather than being so envious of those who work so hard. Ngayon kung poor ka, fault mo dahil tamad ka, ganun lang yun.

    and this people is what you call a rich man’s phone, and not an iPhone.

  6. ARAGORN says:

    Mga bobo, NOKIA pa rin ang maker ng vertu! in fact halos NOKIA din may hawak ng company na ito. kaya kung quality lang pag-uusapan sa smartphone, NOKIA naman talga ang number 1! mahal nmn tlga yang vertu of nokia kasi rare stones and elements ang naadyan di kagaya sa cheap nyong plastic :D its display is made of sapphire crystal and its body is crafted with titanium.

  7. eggi says:

    ..mga katulad lng ni Napoles ang makakabili nyan.. & kahit mayaman aq, pota, hindi aq bibili nyan..

  8. procyon! says:

    Kaya daw mahal kase pwede ka magtransform into masked rider!!! Rider change!!!! Ahahahahahahahahahaha

  9. ReaperMaya says:

    Would have been more appealing kung hindi lang materials and maganda. pati specs din sana. tsss

    • Tikbalang says:

      Sus may more appealing ka pang nalalaman, kahit ano pa specs nyan di mo naman ma aafford yan kahit kailan

    • wew says:

      hindi ganun kadali ang pagpaplano nito…unlike mga iPhones at Samsung,etc. in few months after maannounce ang panibagong model makakapaglabas na agad sila ng final product na ipapalit 1 year after, kaya cguro mejo outdated na ung specs dahil sa tagal….tska wala namang pakialam ang mga buyers nito sa ganda ng specs kundi sa premiumness, as long as kaya nitong masatisfy ang buyer sa experience ok na

  10. FanBoy says:

    Boom! It’s not about the phone, it’s about the price. Boom!

  11. Jesson says:

    What kind of material Vertu Constellation made off and it’s costs more than a quarter-mil in our peso value. Is that made of gold, diamond or what. I’m really wondering. I think the only personalities to afford that for a mobile phone are those who cares nothing for money, because they don’t get to drift a sweat to have that. They just steal it from the masses. Politician will do I think, those crocks…

    • Enteng says:

      Basahin rin ang post pag may time. Ang chassis crafted in grade 5 titanium and sheet of Sapphire crystal. It is also “swathed in luxurious calf leather.” I think handcrafted lahat ng VErtu phones.

  12. Mga [email protected] Tingin niyo ganun ka cheap ako??? Cheap mga android.

    Sent from my 24karat real gold iPhone 5s

  13. Kevin says:

    The real question is: Will it blend?

  14. wide says:

    just widen your horizon and you will unserstand why there are luxuries in life like this phone. your nokia 101 may be a luxury for a very poor man. so just be cool about it. it’s just a gadget for pete’s sake!!!

  15. Mac says:

    Anong sinabi ng mga mayayabang na naka iphone dito sa gadget na ito?

    • Tikbalang says:

      Di porket naka iphone mayabang na, di namin kasalanan kung may pang bili kami ng iphone at ikaw wala

    • Mac says:

      @tikbalang, Huli ka boy, trick question yan, ang sabi ko ung MAYAYABANG na naka iphone di ko sinabing lahat ng naka iphone. Gets? hahaha! Ngayon kung aminado kang mayabang ka,na mukha naman talaga, nais ko marinig ang opinyon mo. Sapat na malaman mo na may iphone din ako, kaya wag mo ako minamaliit.

    Not for Napoles types…

    For the Russian Mafia who are eating caviar and drinking red wine leiseurely every day, Sheikh’s who are holding the Oil in the middle east and Chinese Businessmen who rip off other country’s innovation.

    Or for those who can actually appreciate the beauty of these phones. These Phones put Materials used over the speed wars mainstream phones argue over. These phones also come with the best assistant application ever: A Real Living Breathing human. Yep, comes with someone who will assist you over the phone so that surely beats Siri.

  17. JTC_Mudra says:

    It could have been priced that way if it incorporated high specs. But it didn’t. Not 64mb, not 40+ up megapixels, high-end resolution etc…But then again it’s just the material that made it pricey…not the specs.

  18. jay says:

    It’s like an LV bag. Its very pricey, but its still a bag.

  19. anon666 says:

    panalo na sana kung pati specs maganda din… tsk tsk…

  20. Greg says:

    Vertu has, and will always be out of reach to common folks like us. They hold the title of making the largest sapphire glass displays in the world and using rubies for the keypads and titanium for the bodies.

  21. Justin says:

    So Vertu justifies the P250k difference (from a typical hi-end Android phone) by slapping a sapphire crystal display and titanium body? Hehehe… Ludicrous.

  22. abuzalzal says:

    Not even a gem like Ruby imbedded around the bezels? C’mon you gotta offer waaay more than that

    1,800 mAh battery? HA! Is that enough to last you sa mga non-stop trans-atlantic fights at private cruises habang nakiki-pag chikahan sa mga ka-sosyo at nag ba-browse sa mga next target Hotels na pupuntahan? not even close

    PATAWA ang VERTU

    I would still laugh at its ludicrous price even if I’m a millionaire

    • ABU SALSAL says:

      Kung di ka nga nman bobo, una kung bibili ka ng private jet, puta, dapat me charging dock yan, 2nd, wag kang tanga, may saksaan sa mga cruise ship, di kapa kasi na kakaexperience eh oh well.

    • wew says:

      ok bobo mode uli si abuzalzal di naman siya milyon ang presyo para malagyan ng gemstones…hindi lang ung materials ang nagpamahal dito kundi ung BRAND mismo…cmon Vertu po ito tska kung namomroblema ka sa battery ang mga buyers nito kayang bumili ng powerbank o battery kahit ilan pa yan dahil sa yaman nila….kaya nga nilang bilhin ang MERALCO eh kung tutuusin…

    • abuzalzal says:

      LOL yung dalawang BOBO dito lalo ka na WEW na buntot ng buntot sa mga posts ko

      by your logic (dalawa kayo), kahit 300 mAh pa yan eh OK pa rin yan kasi may power Bank at pwedeng bumili ng sampung high-end phones as a back up…hipocritical pieces of shit, eh hindi niyo rin bibilhin ito eh, maka-kontra lang kayo haha mga gunggong!!!

    • wew says:

      ang punto namin hindi to binili dahil sa battery…kundi sa premiumness tska wala kming sinabing bibilhin namin to bobo

    • secret says:

      ang masasabi ko lang dito ay hindi siya street wise. .kung bili ka nalang ng phone na tama lang sa need mo tapos ung sobra ibigay mo nalang sa mga mahihirap, mas marami pang aappreciate sau. .para saan ung “premiumness” ng phone kung marami kang makikitang tao na ni hindi nga makakain. .hindi porket marami kang pambili, may karapatan ka nang waldasin. .ang buhay ay di lang tungkol sa sarili kundi tungkol sa pagpapahalaga rin sa ibang kapos sa buhay. .drama noh? haha

    • wew says:

      @secret yeah youre right…pero kung mayaman naman ako at gusto ko talagang magkaroon ng vertu,pwede pa rin naman akong tumulong sa iba nang hindi nasasakripisyo ang kagustuhan ko tutal pinaghirapan ko naman un eh.

    • duterte says:

      mga unggoy! anything that is HANDCRAFTED mahal ang presyo .. yang ang mindset ng mga european countries. maliban nalang dito sa pinas na 10 pesos na handcrafted wood carving babaratin nyo pa ng 5 petot..

  23. abuzalzal says:

    Vertu forgot that RICH people are on their phone most of the time

    Kinuripot yung battery eh = epic FAIL

    • NanayMoPuta says:

      You also forgot that most rich people have 2 or more phones. Brado ka na naman haha. Baradong barado ka na ni Abu Salal ayaw mo pa tumigil lol. Tama na hirit. Sumuso ka na lang sa dede ng nanay mo hahahaha

  24. IOS7 says:

    Henry Sy can buy this!!! Ahahahaha

  25. Iyan Sommerset says:

    While the price is still sickeningly ridiculous, at least they’ve cut the diamond/gold-bling out and focused more on actual useful-but-expensive materials like the screen and the body. A bit skeptical of the leather though – that seems too much like an insulator which means it won’t do much good for the phone’s heat-venting capability.

    • wew says:

      @duterte hindi lang dahil gawang kamay ang mga bagay kaya nagiging mahal na…isang factor un pero kaya nagiging mahal ung mga handcrafted phones, bags, and even vehicles ay dahil talagang perpekto ang paggawa nila at xempre matagal na gawaan din yan….aanhin mo ang handcrafted na bagay kung di naman perpekto ang pagkakagawa hahaha

  27. Comment ko to! says:

    Ang dami palang mga “technical writers” dito! Walang magawa. Maiba pa, dami ring nagsasabi na “kahit milyonaryo ako” hindi ko ‘yan bibilhin. Eh subukan niyo muna maging milyonaryo. Totoo nga mahal ang phone pero para sa mga may kaya ‘yan. Eh anong problema kung may pambili sila? Sa totoo lang, wala akong pambili nito pero wala naman akong masabi sa mga taong bibili nito. Kasi kaya nila. Para sa mga katulad ko diyan na walang pambili eh unahin nalang ang bigas! Putek nakaka praning basahin puro kayabangan at kagaguhan. May ibang comment dito na may “sense” kaya sana yung mga walang kwentang comment delete nalang o kaya wag nang mag post. Kasi I read yugatech araw araw na siyang kaya ko lang ma afford na pag libangan – at sa walang pagkakahiya kong inaamin, tapos ang comments niyo lang ang nakaksira nang aking araw. Naku naman.
