  5. Rye de Jesus says:

    Actually, Qube Colonia is better than SKK Platinum Advance. I think that one should also be on the list. With the same price as the Platinum Advance, Colonia has better specifications.

  6. Milhouse says:

    Nokia 1320 is in the list but 1520 is missing? 1520 is Nokia’s flagship phablet and it was released at the same time with the 1320.

    Who is the genius who created this list?

    • Louie Diangson says:

      Me

    • Milhouse says:

      So you changed your mind and removed the 1320 and added the 1520. That’s good to know. Though a responsible online writer/editor would make a footnote about things he edited in the article after its publication.

  17. joe c says:

    great report

  18. ozmoi says:

    Am glad how other Mobile Company seriously compete with Apple with Better specs and hardware. The Issue with this Amazing Products, they will release a really good Android phone, but you are not sure if your device is compatible with Google Android updates. the only way you be getting the latest Android update is that if you buy the Expensive Android Phones or Get a Nexus Device, so you’ll end up with one option again. its Frustrating, You can’t blame people from going back to Apple because at least Everytime Apple Release an iOS update. Your 2 year old iPhone still be getting the update, and you don’t feel left out. Wish Google will try to make it easy for the mobile Company who use Android OS to update their devices easier.
