  1. OEM nito ay Ulefone Be Pro. Sana naayos na nila lahat ng issues e.g. fast typing bug, headset jack popping out, picture quality ng main camera and orange tint sa gitna ng pictures taken from the main camera.

    Upgradeable nga sa Lollipop, pero iu-update ba nila? We can only hope…

    For its price pwede na. Pero sana ginawa na lang nilang separate purchases yung freebies para mas mapababa yung SRP.

  2. Solid Spec better than Octa na hindi naman lahat ng Core nagagamit i good idea na gumamit ng stronger core na kahit quad lang sapat na sa android at consider na yung battery life mataas naman ang capacity ng battery pero yung OS Update nalang at quality ang big question dyan

  3. Spec wise maganda ang offer pero ansagwa ng malaking firefly mobile word sa likod. Nagmukhang cheap dapat niliitan na lang yung word

    1. tama mas maganda wag nalang lagyan ng brand name kagaya lang sa cherry mobile.. cgurado mas marami bibili pg.ganun or pwede dn gawa nlng sila ng logo gaya sa xiaomi et al.

    1. Meizu M1 Note is better in terms of specs. with the same price tag of 7999php, Meizu M1 note is the winner for me!

  4. Advantage of Meizu M1 Note over the Firefly Mobile Intense = Display resolution, Battery
    Sa Firefly Mobile Intense 64 LTE naman = Power Efficient(Can go on par with 3100mAh+ batt dahil HD lang sya at power efficient ang processor), merong SD card slot for more storage space unlike Meizu M1 Note wala.

  5. I bought this phone for myself and im quite happy with it. The only thing that I didnt like is it only works properly when youre using its own earphones and usb cable (the ones that comes inside the kit) – it easily falls off or disconnect when youre using other cable and audio plugs. Also the free earphones dosent give a excellent sound quality. Another thing is the touch screen, its not that sensitive (and accurate) like other phones. WiFi and Bluetooth range arent powerfull like other but you could still use it properly though.

    But the overall performance while gaming and using multiple programs is outstanding compare to other branded and expensive phones. Also the camera works really good! It gives a vivid color result than the Intense X including the selfie cam (front cam), the auto focus also gives a really good quality. The speaker quality is fine, for audios I suggest you download an app such as doubleTwist for better quality.

    I hope I could buy an extra usb chord and earphones so I can use mine easily and freely – and I suggest you guys (buyers) should do the same. And i wish they could produce a customizable case for phones (lol)

    Rating: 4/5
    This is one of the recommended affordable phones for me 😉 – Intense 64

    1. Yup having same issues wid the earphones. I have alot of headphones/earplugs and non fit, only the one that comes in the Firefly Box works properly(weak quality). As for the screen i think its about 97% accurate IMO, other than the keyboard that comes stock ob the phone. Keyboard is a peice of shit, unresponsive, super laggy, if your a fast typer like me you’ll be realy pissed. Thankfully third pasty keyboard apps like Dodol keyboard can fix this issue. Other than that, i give this phone 4/5

  6. Don’t be blind by the SPECS of new phones . .even if the phone has an awesome FEATURES think about its lifespan.Base on my experiences I did buy one of their expensive phone (FF Intense 65 LTE).Few months later nasira yung battery. I tried to bring it back to the their booth on the mall but di raw si kasama sa warranty even it has 1 warranty. So I have no choice but to buy a new battery then wala daw sila stock 64bit LTE battery.

    Then I was like “WHAT? YOUR SELLING PHONES WITHOUT ANY RESERVE BATTERY OR ACCESSORIES?” and you proudly saying to your costumers that your phone has 1 year warranty.
    Then I ask pa-order na lang ako sa company. After 3 months, Until today they say to me “Still NO Stock”

    I RATHER BUY PHONE WITH LESS FEATURES BUT HAS A LONG LIFESPAN THAN WASTING MY MONEY ON THIS THING AFTER FEW MONTHS MASISIRA DIN

    1. Spot on..same here.you have to go for a world wide brand.Firefly, Na..sorry.my battery blew the back of my intense 64 after 6 weeks, crap, 3 months wait for battery too.
