Unified "Help Me Choose A Phone" Thread

    ilich - almost same lang ang audio performance ng mga handsets on that range. good option is a used galaxy s3 (4.8in though) but as far as I know yan ang pinaka close na cheap na may wolfson dac.


    maraming salamat sa reply. so does this wolfson dac thingy offer a major audio boost compared to current phones in the 6-7k range?
    you see, my ears have been spoiled lately by the MaxxAudio on the Asus G750JH; my humble Soundmagic ES18 already sounds like it's 5-10 times what it's actually worth.

    nanibago ako bigla noong makinig ako ulit sa mga android phones using poweramp. yung dating akala ko ay magandang tunog sa CM Burst 2.0 ay parang pumangit bigla, naririnig ko na ang mga scratches, muddy tones etc. na dati ay di ko napapansin.

    i'm no audiophile. just like to find a phone with decent audio for my 6-7k budget.
    i don't need giga-cores, bulletproof glass panel, etc. XD

    i'll repost my ideal phone:
    brand new or second-hand
    5-inch HD display
    scratch resistant glass
    at least 1GB RAM
    removable batt
    expandable storage
    decent main cam
    good audio quality on the 3.5mm audio jack
    6-7k budget

    tia.
  • Hi all,

    I just want to ask your opinions about buying a 2nd Iphone 4s 16gb or should I stay on my current phone which is Zenfone5 16gb.

    Iphone 4s(White) details:
    16gb
    2 years old
    without Earphones
    With Original Charger and Box
    Not hacked
    Pwede sa Globe and Smart
    Price = 8k

    Please I need your suggestions.
    Thank you in Advance

    specs wise dun na ako sa zenfone 5.. for me pang status symbol lang yung iphone.. specially kung 4s lang yan.. imagine ang layo ng specs ng z5 sa iphone 4s.. tapos magdowngrade ka lang ng specs (pero sa price gumastos kapa).. no offense/kidding aside nag downgrade ka para masabi naka iphone ka lang..heheh parang sayang..

    anyway, its your money.. pero kung practical ka na tao stay sa zen5.. thats my suggestion/advice.. hehe pero its up to you parin..
  • Stick with Zenfone. Mabuti sana kung 5S na yan...

    Sige sir stick nalang ako sa Zenfone5. Thank you sa mga suggestions niyo sir ^_^
  • ilich - if you're fine with a 4.8inch device, s3 na nga. Lots of good stuff, still powerful even for a 2012 device, good audio, very ample customizations and custom rom/dev support, and got almost everything you need. It's a good buy. :)

    curiouz - it depends on your preference sir. If you prefer simple UI, good call/text support, playing a few games and usual media consumption, the iPhone4s will suffice. But if you're more of a power user, then stick to your Z5. :)

  • Good day everybody!

    Ask ko lang po kung OK lang po ba mag purchase ng fone for Kimstore or Widget City?
    First time ko pa kase "sana" bibili sa online store. Paano po kaya ang warranty kapag ganun?
    At pano ko din po ba malalaman kung saan galing ung fone?

    Salamat po sa inyong magiging mga kasagutan...

  • Good day po! Nagiisip po kc ako between the two phones. Asus zenfone 5 and CM Fuze. Ano po kaya mas bang for the buck. Hindi naman po ako mahilig mag games at mag picture. Wifi and texting lang kadalasan. Ano po kaya mas maganda?

    The Cherry Mobile Fuze is one of the last phones you'll want for picture taking. I know, because I reviewed it. A lot of cheaper models have better cameras.

    Get the Zenfone 5 if you only text and use wifi. It has one of the best cameras in this price segment.
  • Ano po worth it na pamalit sa xiaomi mi3? Planning to buy this december (alam nyo n yun). Max ng 2x price ng mi3.
  • LG G3, Note 3, or Z2 if youre willing to buy from the grey market

    If you must have a warranty, the xperia z1 should get a price drop aoon. The 32gb G2 is currently 18k in abensons.
  • torn between alcatel pop c9 and asus zenfone 5, which one is better? bukod po sa specs. sino po nakapag hands on na dito for both phones? thank u po sa magrereply :)
  • Unless may nagbago na from years ago, medyo di maganda ang rep ng Alcatel dito sa Pinas...mag Zenfone 5 ka na lang kung may mahanap kang stock...hehe
  • ^ meron po akong nakitang stock sa sm san lazaro, nakalimutan ko lang kung anong store yun..btw thank u po.

    pero may nababasa po kasi akong battery issue sa zenfone 5 :(

  • split between a xperia z3 compact or the lg g2

    z3 pros:
    small profile
    ip68 certification
    newer hardware
    sure 5.0 upgrade

    g2 pros:
    cheaper
    comparable performance
    large screen for its size
    unconfirmed upgrade to 5.0

    i also consider the dev community support for a device..ano sa tingin nyo guys? 16k for g2 or 21k for z3c?
  • Sa Z3 ka na, the 5k is worth it already for the obvious compactness, slightly better SoC, IP68 certification, slightly better hardware, certainty of having Lollipop, and of course the legendary battery life.
  • oonga eh..leaning towards it na..and also been researching the touchscreen and lcd problems of the g2.nakakakaba siya

    salamat sa input sir entropy
  • any better option for nokia 105? yung my sd card sana? any alternatives?
  • Is is worth getting the Note 4 at plan 2k for smart?
