In as much as I would like to retain the use of my current phone and no matter how much is its sentimental value, I have to accept the fact that it is not catering to my Social Media needs…. specially now that it is half-broken.
I am now considering my options in buying a new phone. I don’t like to splurge on it even though I deem it necessary. Call me stingy. Call me a Scrooge. Call me what you like. Like I said, I just want something that would cater to my social media needs, I don’t care what the brand is — as long as it is affordable.
I’m eyeing the two new local phones in the market.
First is the Pinoy Android phone from MyPhone, the A898 Duo. It is the first ever Android smartphone from MyPhone that comes with 3G connectivity.
and second is the Cherry Mobile Flare, the first ever dual-core Android ICS smartphone in the market with an unbelievably low price of ₱3,999 .
The Specs of these two are almost the same. They both have 512MB RAM, 4GB of internal storage, 5MP auto-focus camera with LED flash, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), microSD up to 32GB, 720p HD Video Recording, Bluetooth / USB / WiFi, and GSM 900/1800/1900 (Tri-band) .
The only difference is that Cherry Mobile Flare has a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor and a price of ₱3,999? I don’t think you could get a better bargain.
Christmas Gift to myself? Birthday Gift? What do you think?
