  1. Cloudfone Thrill HD CM Omega HD3 for the same price of ~3k. Same specs but Thrill HD didn’t specify the SOC and battery capacity used. Review comparison please! ^_^

  2. San kya makakabili nito? Wala p kasi sa SM cubao at saka sa Farmers kisks ng Cloudfone eh, any information po kung san may available na nito? Thanks in advance sa mga magrereply?

    1. Same here po sa SM Sta.Mesa okay naman siya hindi lag kaso lang 8 hours lang battery pag nagwawifi pag hindi okay naman 🙂

  3. I got the thirll lite pero bakit ganon ang messaging capacity? Hanggang 30 messages lang. I went to the settings pero hindi talaga ma-change eh. it would say USED:15 TOTAL:30. Just what was that?
