    Yung teaser ad nila last month, 1080p daw…ngayon 720p lang pala, ano ba tologoh!?

    Tsaka may ”Default install to SD card” option ba ito? like, most CM devices have this feature, kung wala, iiyak ka sa liit ng usable space niyan.

    PRICING medyo mahal for a 720p device, they could’ve sacrificed a bit by lowering it down (SRP) a little in order to gain more sales volume.

    Woah. Masyadong mahal. It will only cost u 11k including shipping at etotalk (dot) com for a 16 gb, 2gb ram and same processor with 1080p display. Masyadong mahal to, this even just a rebranded china/indian phone with a downgraded display

    Kabobohang specs and price. Hintayin nyo na lang lumabas ang S5 then saka kayo bumili ng S4 dahil magiging 19K na lang yun. Utangin nyo na lang 5K. Let us not support mediocrity.

    Well, Let’s compare it with the flagship phones of other local brands:

    Star mobile Diamond x1 = 13,990

    Myphone Iceberg mini = 12,888
    Cherry Mobile OHD2X = 12,399

    I know that specs wise, its foolish to compare, kase these phones belong to an older generation of mediatek precossors.. pero the fact that SM-Dx1 is rocking a new processor and is just 1k-1.5k more expensive than the others…You have to give Starmobile credit for that..

    well, not everyone has 14k.. so I understand why you would call it expensive.

    My only gripe is, sana instead of companies saying that they’re phones have “18 mp cameras”, maging totoo na lang sila and sabihin nila “it has a 13 mp camera but has an interpolation software that will allow you to take digitally enhanced photos upto 18 mp”

    • wew says:

      @zhel lol kung ikaw anang nasa lagay nila paniguradong “18 mp cameras” pa rin ang ilalagay mo kasi ung nilalagay mong statement eh bukod sa mahaba eh hindi maiintindihan ng mga tao.di naman lahat ng tao eh tech geek.
