  1. Headline says: Quad-core Processor At 7.3K
    Specs says: Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 octa-core processor

    Alin po ang tama?

  2. ”The phone will be released in China first, though no word when this phone will hit our shores”

    Rick-Roll’d again..with matching PHP price conversion AAAARRRRGHHHHH!!!!!!

    Mr. Neves, please end this

  3. specs wise is the same as the Huawei G8..
    magkagulo pricing nila if ma.release to sa Pinas..
    15k – 17k presyo ng G8 eh..

    1. Dahil katakut-takot na Tax ang ipinapatong ng BOC….I would guess may 30% inflation din vs. sa China price.
