Lazada is throwing a massive sale starting June 4 until June 6. To help you guys out, we’ve curated a list of smartphones that you might want to consider buying if your budget is only around P5,000. These are budget-friendly devices that punch beyond their weight so they’re definitely worth looking into.
By the way, we also published a guide for smartphones to buy during the Lazada 6.6 Bounce Back Sale for under P20,000. Check that out after you finish reading this article.
Xiaomi Redmi 8A
This is solid value-for-money with the discounted price and easily one of our top recommendations at this price range. The Redmi 8A uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 processor, has a massive 5000mAh battery capacity, and has decent cameras (12MP rear, 8MP selfie). It won’t be able to do multitasking well nor will it let you play games at HIGH settings, but for day-to-day use, it will get the job done. You can already “ADD TO CART” this one and just wait for midnight of June 4 to buy (that’s 1 minute after 11:59PM June 3 just to be crystal clear). Click here to shop it on Lazada.
realme C2 2020
Next up we have one of the budget smartphone kings — the realme C2. It uses the MedaTek Helio P22 processor paired with 2GB RAM. It also has a dual shooter set-up (13MP + 2MP) and a generous 4000mAh battery. You can play games on this device but don’t expect them to be buttery smooth all the time. Click here to shop it on Lazada.
Xiaomi Redmi 7A
At this price point, you can’t complain about the specs anymore, especially if they were still able to squeeze in a Snapdragon 439 processor and a decent 12MP primary shooter. If not for yourself, this will make for a great gift come Christmas or maybe a raffle prize for a Christmas party! Click here to shop it on Lazada.
Currently P5,990 (Sale Price Not Yet Revealed But It Should be Close to 5k)
This one is a beast given the price. It packs a Helio G70 processor, which is enough for you to enjoy Mobile Legends and other mobile games. It has a triple 12MP main shooter set-up for those creamy Bokeh shots. And it has a monstrous 5000mAh battery for all-day use. No wonder it’s always out of stock! They’ll restock it and probably do a discount come June 4 though so watch out! Click here to check it out.
Slightly more expensive than the P5,000 price target but it gives you a better processor with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 and a respectable 4GB of RAM. It’s arguably worth the additional P1,000 if only for those two upgrades. Everything else is a bonus. Click here to shop it on Lazada.
