as for camera quality, i wouldn't put too much premium on the MP count.  better look at reviews and samples and not just the specs.

yup. ganun na nga.  not about MP.  and if clarity lang ang paguusapan, kahit anong modern midrange smartphone kaya na yun.  nagkakaiba lang sila sa quality ng pics.  yung mga washed out colors, low light performance at mga kagaya nun.  pero kung linaw lang ng camera paguusapan kahit anong midrange na phone okay na.  yung mga cherry mobile nga parang may 20mp na camera pero di parin ganun kaganda
ok, noted. thanks!

now may concern ako sa Xiaomi. nag google ako at apparently nawala sila sa market nang ilang taon then bumalik. eh paano kung bumili ng Xiaomi phone tapos may nagkaproblema at nawala uli sila? eh di GG na. :lol:

lolz!  eh yung asus mo nga may service center pero di nila maayos ng mabuti diba?  from what i understand, bumalik sila dahil mali yung strategy na ginamit nila dati.  concentrate sila sa online selling dati at hindi effective dito yun.  btw, meron silang 5% discount bukas sa flagship store nila sa megamall.  may mga freebies pa sila.  kaya lang sobrang haba ng pila nun malamang.  hehehe!  probably worth the 500 peso discount though

Flagships FTW. Expensive when you buy, but will serve way longer and gets much better support than low-mid end phones.

Not that expensive, I got $100 discount from preordering from Bestbuy, then 30 months installment with 0% interest. Same price na lang ng isang Starbucks frapp per week.

this S9+ will replace my 3 yr old Note Edge na mapupunta kay misis. She's still using my 4 yr old S5.
Yung S3 ko gumagana pa after 6 yrs. Yung S4 ok pa sana siguro kung hindi lang nahulog sa tubig. Lol

Just the Note Edge. I replaced the battery after 2 years.

None, still got me through the day unless I game and watch youtube vids heavily but since I got the S3 Gear Frontier I always bring a powerbank to make sure it doesn't die on me.

baka nga. pero bago ako na-kick out sa ZF3 Max FB page kasi nagreklamo ako regarding battery issue eh ang dami ko nabasa na similar problem. ang nakakainis eh kung prevalent di nag issue ng statement Asus, di acknowledge yung problem. tapos yung mga fanatic dun sa FB page eh dinedeny yung problem, sabi nasa user daw. eh di nga ginagamit yung phone pero mainit at mabilis maubos battery.

mukhang ok yung specs ng  Redmi 5 Plus. strongly considering it.

I just uninstalled it. Can't make sense of what it needs the mic for. Besides, I've never used the app before as it's inconvenient to top up. :)
