Which phone will get your hard-earned money this December?




December is fast approaching and it’s usually the month of the year when people have saved up for that handset purchase of the year. This season, 3 flagship handsets will vie for your hard-earned money — the Galaxy Note 2, Lumia 920 and the iPhone 5.

All three flagship smartphones happen to represent the best each mobile operating system can offer — Android, iOS and Windows Phone. We hope all three will land in the Philippines this December.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Announced in Berlin, Germany during IFA, the Galaxy Note 2 follows the same upgrade path as the Galaxy S3.

The Galaxy Note 2 boasts of a 5.5-inches Super AMOLED display with 720p resolution, quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 64GB capacity, NFC, LTE and a 3100mAh battery. The Note 2 will run the latest Android OS which is Jellybean. Samsung is definitely banking on their superb hardware specs couple with Google’s Android ecosystem.

Estimated retail price — Php33k to Php36k (price based on SRP of Galaxy S3 and the SRP of Galaxy Note when it was launched in the Philippines).

Nokia Lumia 920. The Lumia 90 is Nokia’s first flagship smartphone running Windows Phone 8.


The Lumia 920 sports a 4.5-inch 720p HD display, dual-core Krait processor, 1GB RAM, 32GB storage, NFC, and LTE. This will be the first time we will see Windows Phone 8 on a more updated set of hardware. There’s also the PureView technology which we’ve seen on the Nokia 808 to be very impressive (it’s not exactly the same as the 808 though so we’ll have to test it again).

Estimated retail price — Php28k to Php30k (price is based on the SRP of the Lumia 900 when it was released in the Philippines).

Apple iPhone 5. Announced last week, the iPhone 5 added some incremental upgrades to the iPhone 4S.

This is the first time the iPhone got bigger, from 3.5-inch to 4.0 inches. It’s runs on an A6 chip, has 1GB RAM, 64GB storage and LTE. Apple is banking on its solid design and tight ecosystem to sell the iPhone 5.

Estimated retail price — Php34k to 38k (price is based on the prepaid kit price of Smart and Globe when they released the iPhone 4S last year).

Again, we hope that all three of these flagship devices will be released in the Philippines on or before the holiday season.

So, which one of these handset will take your hard-earned money? Go hit the comments to cast your votes.

  11. aldo says:

    Nokia Lumia 920!

  12. ernest says:

    The Note 2.

  13. Darwin says:

    note2 and s3 = laggy os and apps
    lumia 920 = good but heavy
    iphone 5 = FTW

    • garz says:

      It’s funny how people experience little lags once in a while and they consider the gadget generally laggy. Have you even used the Note II already?

      I have an S2 and I experience VERY LITTLE lag once in a while. But I don’t mind. It doesn’t affect the apps anyway. Yes, in my experience I didn’t experience lags on my apps AT ALL. They do crash sometimes. And so does Apple apps.

    • John says:

      i think what we mean by lag in android is that iOS and wp7.5 are so smooth that android, even on jellybean, looks so choppy.

      kaya di na maalis ang lag=android.

      sorry.

    • garz says:

      “…android, even on jellybean, looks so choppy.”

      Looks? So that means you’ve just seen it?

      WP7 doesn’t lag because it’s not graphic-heavy. iOS doesn’t lag because Apple is the only manufacturer of the iPhone so they can optimize it to the best performance possible but that’s doesn’t mean it won’t lag. Android, on the other hand, is made by different manufacturers, uses different materials, runs on different CPUs, GPUs displays, etc. so UI experience varies on the make. Even high-end PCs lag once in a while – and so do Macs.

    • deuts says:

      And this is what I mean by Android lag.

    • John says:

      Im am currently typing at my galaxy nexus. So… :)

      Yes, even on jelly bean it does lag, hirap nga magtype kasi ang bagal lumabas ng letter pag nagtatatype ako dito sa yugatech. Try mo.

      Delay… while sa ip4, hindi at mabilis.

      So whatever you say, android doeslag at hindi sa iphone. That is one ofthe reason ip5 ang pipipliin ko.

  14. wreek888 says:

    I will buy note 2 as my xmas gift for myself, iphone5 next may as bday gift and by that time price of it will be much lower.

  15. ceegii63 says:

    Lumia 920 ATT variant estimated at $499

    and

    Xiaomi Mi2

  16. Wobi says:

    Neither, I’ll go for Xperia Nexus

  17. AlsaMasa says:

    Base on the Stats, Nokia Lumia 920 is the most innovative smartphone among the three. And with that price? I don’t I’d consider any other.

  18. vinvinvin says:

    Note 2! No doubt!

  19. deuts says:

    iSheep! LOL I’ll still go for iPhone 5!

  20. Vern says:

    Nokia Lumia 920

  21. ARL says:

    iPhone5! Stable OS, superb quality apps!

  22. ishi says:

    NOTE 2 my preference.

  23. Joanne says:

    Nokia Lumia 920. I been wiping off the drool on my face ever since I saw it! Love it so much!

  24. ishi says:

    NOTE 2 rocks!

  25. marc says:

    still waiting for HTCs announcement on the 19th before I decide

  26. ceegii63 says:

    the best option to get a Lumia 920 is still getting it from ATT when the Lumia 900 came out it was only for $499 and is now only $399 a few months later

  27. karissa says:

    None…I’ll save my money for other useful stuff.

  28. LunaTech says:

    Note 2 syempre!

  29. Kevin says:

    Hello Moto.

  30. RickyRepol says:

    I’ll go for Sony Xperia V!

  31. Jason says:

    iPhone 5… the best

  32. alaine says:

    no xperia v or xperia t?

  33. Dhan says:

    definitely GN2

  34. russ85 says:

    obviously the beautifully different Lumia 920. you cant even distinguish an iphone 5 to an iphone 4s in a glance. you will still use a pathetic protector/cover coz its freakin fragile. base your ‘porma’ when you take your iphone outside NAKED which i hardly doubt isheeps will do.

    • Jiron says:

      I also commend Nokia for bundling a protective case for the Lumia 800 that looked sleek with the phone. We bought one last July.

  35. Kill says:

    iPhone 5 syempre!

  36. osbert says:

    LG Optimus G.

  37. topgun says:

    ill go for Lumnia 920 best suited for me..

  38. Jiron says:

    It all boils down to preference. If I had the money, I’d spend it on the Nokia Lumia 920.

    The iPhone just became too boring. The screen size is weird (not 16:9). No real new features compared to the Galaxy and the Lumia.

    @Darwin: If you did get a chance to use the S3, It’s not really laggy.

  39. jake says:

    Any review for sony xperia?? I am eying one of xperia series

  40. jeff says:

    kht ala dyan sa choices ang lg, LG Optimus G ako

  41. blue says:

    Note 2 upgrade sa Galaxy Note ko.

    pero yung hard-earned money ko ay kinuha na ng BIR :(

  42. kurosaki says:

    I was really waiting for the g note 2… unfortunately my present g note destroyed my micro sd card deleting my important files and pics… so i guess fate is telling me to change ecosystem… Lumia 920 & 820 for me

  43. camhiliciouz says:

    I dont see the point but being evil of bashing other phones to build those that they prefer. Ang tanong lang naman alincang bibilhin nyo? No need magsiraan. Isuport nyo nalang inapositive way yung preference nyo.

    I just bought a galaxy sIII and i love it do much. I have an iphone 4 too, so maybe ill be upgrading to the i5 later. I just love how simple it is to use. Dahil bigger screen na xa, i may drop my ipad na for reading ebooks.

    But the lumia 920 looks cool too. If siguro madami akong money, pareho nalang nyung i5 and 920.

    • topgun says:

      tama tol..it still boils down to ones preferences..pera naman nila yun eeh..hehe but for me, ill go for lumnia 920..the best smartphone for me..

  46. sparrow says:

    SONY Smartphone

  47. Jayvee says:

    I’m surprised at how the Galaxy SIII is missing in this shortlist. The Note 2 relatively has a lesser target market as the iPhone 5. But before I forget, I’d wish Apple freaks all the satisfaction with their latest dumbphone given a very OPEN and LIVELY OS. Rejoice! ROFL

    • super emote! says:

      Cool ka lang Jayvee. Na feel ko sobra ang super OA emotional outburst mo! napaiyak ako grabe, peace!

      anyway, i have an iPhone, a Samsung Note 1,Nokia asha 311 to be replaced by the Nokia Lumia 920 soon once it gets released (globe, sun and smart respectively), di ko nagustuhan ang blackberry pero hindi ako nagagalit sa kanila. I like to try and play around with different OSs and brands para masaya, FYI lang :-0

    Waiting for Ascend D Quad.

  49. Byron says:

    Nokia Lumia 920! Hands down the most exciting smartphone since the iPhone 4.

    I’ll get the Lumia 920 din!

  51. Arvin says:

    I’m really interested in the Motorola RAZR M, I hope it comes to the Philippines by December or early next year :)

  52. E says:

    Nokia Lumia 920 the best!

  53. Levite says:

    Its Nokia Lumia 920 for me not because its the cheapest but because its the greatest in terms of camera specs. Saw all the presentation of the floating lens with Pureview tech and its by far the most suited for every camera phone. I love the yellow

  54. heyheyhey says:

    nokia hotness.

  55. Name: kebbot says:

    ill but Lumia 920 and ipod Touch 5th gen…

    ppliin mo iphone 5 because maganda ang apps, but alam naman natin madaling maubus ung bat nang iphones kapag nag ggames ka dba… so if you want to spend less go for d i touch…

  57. Gams says:

    Dapat magsama na lang ang Nokia at Sony,kasi mahilig sila sa dual-core….Huli man sa paligsahan,tumatakbo pa rin.

    • Marcelino says:

      Dual-core Krait ang ginagamit ng Nokia and Sony.

      FYI, nilampaso nila ang quad-core ng Samsung sa benchmarks.

    • dice says:

      FYI lang po dual core krait is a S4 pro procie of Snapdragon.. according po sa gsmarena mas mabilis ang krait kaysa sa mga latest phones ngayon hindi po porket Quadcore mabilis na

      sa dami na ba ng cores ang labanan ngayon? so kapag quadcore? bibilis din ba yung kausap mo sa cellphone?

  58. Jason says:

    Lumia! sana lang may expandable memory cya like his lesser siblings

  59. Dolf says:

    I swore to myself that I’ll be getting the iPhone 5 since ninakaw yung iPhone 4 ko.. But realizing of what it’s going to offer, parang ililipat ko nalang yung attention ko kay Lumia 920.

    Lumia 920 and Iphone 5

  78. iVan says:

    the only advantage of Apple over its competitors is its incredibly huge app market. an elongated iPhone4s is useless to me since i already own an iPad.

    nokia lumia 920 is promising… but not to an avid FM radio listener like me. the nokia phone, surprisingly, has no FM radio (just like the iphone).

    Galaxy note 2 is perfection. Huge app marketplace. Gigantic screen. Very snappy OS. Widgets!

  79. Kaloy says:

    Will pass on this 3. Will wait for BB10 to come out. If ever BB10 is not going to be impressive i’ll go with Lumia 820 instead. Screen above 4.3″ is too big for me. I hope BB10 would really wowed us all ü

    • Boy Butet says:

      ^ Yup I think the launch of BB10 shall be exiting din, so Ill say IP5 & BB10 for me this coming holiday season although for BB10 Ill have to wait for the first quarter of its 2013 launch.

    NOTE2. OPTIMUS G sounds good but after owning the optimus HD lte I’m not really impressed with LG’s support. Slow updates and hard to root. Not as friendly as the Samsung. I loved my original note and expecting even greater satisfaction from the note 2.

    LG OPTIMUS “G”

    LG UNVEILS WORLD’S FIRST LTE SMARTPHONE WITH SNAPDRAGON QUAD-CORE

    Newest Premium Device from LG Sets High Benchmark for Performance and Usability

    SEOUL, August, 28, 2012 -– LG Electronics (LG) revealed its newest premium mobile device with the announcement of the Optimus G, a high-end smartphone that offers powerful performance, an elegant and sleek design, and an innovative user experience. As the first LTE device featuring Qualcomm’s Snapdragon™ S4 Pro Quad-Core processor, Optimus G will set the foundation for every future premium smartphone from LG.

    Best-of-Best Technologies
    To offer the best smartphone to consumers, LG gathered industry-leading partners and technologies to develop the Optimus G. In collaboration with Qualcomm, LG developed the Optimus G with the goal to be the first LTE smartphone with the Snapdragonâ„¢ S4 Pro CPU. LG also joined hands with vertically-integrated sister companies LG Chem, LG Display and LG Innotek for the ultimate battery capacity, viewing and user experience.

    Next Generation Quad-Core with LTE
    The Optimus G will be the first commercial and global smartphone to offer the Snapdragon S4 Pro (APQ8064) processor with a Quad-Core Krait CPU, LTE supported capabilities, and the newest generation Adrenoâ„¢ 320 GPU. The Snapdragon S4 Pro runs at 1.5GHz and features Asynchronous Symmetric Multiprocessing (aSMP), which enables each core to power up and down independently, for maximum performance with better battery life. Furthermore, the Adreno 320 is over three times faster than the Adreno 225 found in previous Snapdragon processors for an enhanced gaming experience with faster frame rates, smoother play and support for higher HD resolution displays.

    Cutting-edge Display and Outstanding Battery Efficiency
    With help from LG Display, the Optimus G sports a beautiful 4.7-inch WXGA True HD IPS+ Display with 320ppi high pixel density (1280×768 pixels) and Stripe RGB IPS Panel with 15:9 aspect ratio. LG Display pushed the boundaries of its technology to offer True HD IPS+ Display, which is sharper and crisper with color accuracy of sRGB 100 percent to show natural and life-like images.

    Moreover, the Optimus G will be the first smartphone to be equipped with LG Innotek and LG Display’s newly developed G2 Touch Hybrid Display for touchscreen panels (TSP). The G2 Touch Hybrid Display is thinner than current TSPs and offers the slimmest panel display with no diffused reflection for clearer and sharper visibility, even outdoors. Thanks to the new technology, the thickness of the screen panel has been reduced and the screen itself is much stronger to withstand damage from impact.

    Lastly, LG Chem developed a high-density 2,100mAh battery that provides more power capacity and prolonged charging cycles. The new battery technology extended the battery lifespan to 800 cycles at 80 percent charging capabilities, much greater than the lifespan of 500 cycles in regular phone batteries.

    Enhanced UX for Productivity and Entertainment
    Whether users need functionality or fun in their daily lives, the Optimus G has it all, including a high-resolution 13.0MP camera and unique and differentiated user experience (UX) features, such as:

    · Live Zooming allows zooming in and out while viewing a video;
    · Dual Screen Dual Play, not only allows mirroring between the smartphone and a TV, it also has the ability to
    display different content on each screen. For example, a slide presentation can be displayed on the TV
    while the Optimus G shows the accompanying speaking notes;
    · QMemoTM, first seen in the Optimus Vu:, allows users to write, draw, or jot a memo directly on the captured
    screen with their finger for sharing instantly with others as an attachment or a URL;
    · Time Catch Shot allows users to select and save the best shot among the images taken just before the
    shutter button is depressed;
    · Cheese Shutter takes a photo when a voice command is spoken.

    The added UX features are anticipated to provide instant and intuitive productivity to complete tasks beyond simple multitasking.

    Innovative and Modern Look
    LG maintained its differentiated design philosophy with the Optimus G. The Optimus G is encased in an eye-catching slim body epitomizing timeless beauty that perfectly demonstrates LG’s design philosophy. Premium glass is utilizied on the back cover with a polarized glass pattern that offers a clean, modern look. The G2 Touch Hybrid Display contributed significantly to the design of the Optimus G as it reduced the thickness of the device enabling Optimus G to fit more comfortably in the hand. And the jet black front display flows smoothly into the body for a seamless look with no gaps.

    “We are confident that users will have a superior experience with everything that we’re offering in the Optimus G,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Optimus G isn’t just another high-performance phone with the latest bells and whistles. It’s a collaboration of some of the best component makers on the planet coming together for a singular cause, to develop a smartphone that stands out in a sea of me-too devices.”

    NTT DOCOMO will be the first to unveil a Japanese edition of the Optimus G. The global version of the device will be launched in Korea in September, followed by other markets worldwide.
