    The price excites me. Kaso tataas pa yan pag dating (kung dadating officially) dito sa PH. Ganda ng gold :)

  4. Reasonable says:

    Well yes, the price is higher than previous phones. But let’s not forget that they’re using the absolute latest tech now. And that this and its competitors were released practically together. And they all share a lot of the same specs.

    To be able to sell this for two-thirds the price of the competition says a lot.
