    4. Mx4 pro with better specs all around

    5. Xperia Z Ultra or LG G2 (in online shops)

      Utot mo. wala ka lang pambiling hampaslupa ka.

      Utuuut mu. wala ka lang pambili. Dapat sayo binubuga ang mukha mo ng usok ng tambutcho

    • ingles says:

      Agree. Dun sa ayaw sa mga ‘budget’ brands, the older models of Sony and LG are better alternatives. They may be older but specs are similar or better.

      The Xperia Z Ultra is now only 12,980 in some online stores- same price as the E5 but significantly better specs.

      The Xperia Z is 14.9K in online stores- around the same specs but 1k cheaper than the E7.

      @peeyaj Don’t listen to the trolls above me. Typical dumb reasoning nila yan. Pag na-criticize ang idol brand nila, sasabihin wala ka lang talagang pambili. Kita mo naman, you backed your post with specs, yung sa kanila “utot” lang ang nakalagay.

    • bliss says:

      agree, para dun sa mga walang alam kung di utot, panong walang pambili ? what peeyaj pointed out is that for the same amount of money you can get better phones?

    Snapdragon 410.. di man lamang gawing LTE.. sayang :(

  3. Easy E says:

    Yung mga di nakakaalam sa presyuhan na lang ang bibili nito.

    Pansin ko lang sa mga mahihilig mag comment dito.

    Kapag Chinese-owned brands ang nag-release:

    Pangit daw kasi made in China
    Substandard daw
    Sirain daw

    Kapag mga kilala o multinational yung brand:

    Overpriced daw
    Walang kwenta raw ang specs
    Mas maganda pa raw ang [insert OEM1 OEM2].

    • Red says:

      Karamihan kasi walang alam sa mga brand gaya ng Xiaomi and Meizu. Isa sa pinakamagandang smartphone na nagamit ko is Xiaomi mi3, hindi ako nagsisi nung binili ko un dati akong owner ng Nexus 4.

    Ang dapat kasi isipin ng oems eh bang for the buck na ang labanan ngayon. Samsung phones for me are really overpriced. Look at other brands like asus, meizu and xiaomi. They make phones with good build quality, impressive design and better specs to price ratio. Kahit may pera ka o nagbubudget pag marunong ka tumingin ng specs you can see how samsung is not really after user satisfaction.

    • Carlo says:

      Unfortunately, people who understand those specs are a very small minority. It’s why you will only see Samsung phones everywhere.

  6. shutter says:

    Samsung konti na lang naniniwala sa inyo. MAsyado kayong overpriced magbenta. Dapat nyan below 10k na lang yung E7 mo. Malamang lalangawin sa Pilipinas yan. hehehe

  7. 2pe says:

    may price premium ang e5 and e7 dahil sa super amoled technology na gimamit sa screen nila, and the 64 bit architecture ng processor. their price is just about right given the specs. Amoled screens for me are way better than any other screen type, but its a matter of subjective preference.

  8. igniculus says:

    well, its a premium looking phone with a premium feel to it and made from QUALITY standards and should I say they are Samsung and could do whatever the hell they want.
