Nokia Lumia 1020 Launched Locally Priced at Php35,650

Medyo mahal siya.
Medyo mahal siya.

What do we think of the price?

So Nokia Philippines launched their newest flagship, the Nokia Lumia 1020 a few days ago. It’s not secret that we’re big fans of Windows Phones. Heck, we’ve used the Nokia Lumia 920 longer than we did the iPhone 5. However we can’t just help but be disappointed with the price of the Lumia 1020. Php35,650 just won’t cut it in a very competitive market even if you bundle it with a camera grip battery charging case that’s supposed to cost an additional Php4,000. At that price the Nokia Lumia 1020 goes up against the Galaxy Note 3 and the iPhone 5S. It’s even more expensive than the Xperia Z1 or the Z Ultra. It’s almost Php10,000 more expensive than the LG G2.

Here are a few photos to sum up the feelings of everyone here at Unbox about the Lumia 1020’s price:

  1. hi po Unbox.ph…
    bkt po ganun sila kung makahusga sa nokia?? isipin muna na nila na kaya mhal yung lumia 1020 dhil bka maraming features tlga.. ex. sa camera nlang eh, taob na iphone5 nila.. 41mp yun eh.. opinion ko lng po yan sir Carlo Ople. tenkyu po.. wag po sana silang mashusga agad. gamitin muna nila, bago nila husgahan..

  2. the price is actually competitive in the world market considering a factory unlocked unit is about 750usd and the charging shell with battery is at 75usd. bundle it together and add some taxes and you get the price that nokia philippines announced.

    1. professional lang tignan ang DSLR chong pero kung ikaw na mismo ang gagamit nun, super hussle pre, sisilip ka pa, ang bigat pa at hindi rin pwede ibulsa.. at panis ang canon eos 60D ko sa linaw ng bagong lumia 1020 ko.. sa resolution din, walang nilamon 60D ko.. malupet ang lumia 1020 chong.. testing no kaya muna?? ako kasi natesting ko na at gamit ko sya ngayon.. astig.. pre, magtxt ka nga at tumawag sa DSLR, kaya mo ba??
      ang huling masasabi ko sa Nokia Lumia 1020 ay may cellphone ka na, may SUPER DSLR ka pa..

      wala sa porma ng DSLR yun pre, at lalong wala rin sa haba ng mga lenses yun.. nasa mismong camera yun sa loob.. malaki lang ang housing ng DSLR pero subukan mong silipin ang mismong camera nya sa loob, maliit lang yan. kapiranggot lang yan sa lumia 1020..

      baka trip mong bilihin canon eos 60D ko, binibenta ko na sya 30K..
      55K ang bili ko nun sa sm north edsa..
      baka trip mo lang naman..

      RFS: may walang nilamon sa Lumia 1020 ko..

      ito pala number ko kung sakaling intirisado ka. 09167421182. peace tau pre..

  3. The opinion of the article is more on the consumer side. Hindi naman na judge ung gadget. It’s all about how will it sell to the target market, Philippines. Lalo na sa bansa natin ang taas ng competition ng mobile phones tapos ibebenta mo ng ganyang price. Worth it kung worth siya, pero minsan kase nasa isip ng brand sellers the expensive I am the higher value I am at the market.. (opinion lang…) Anyweiyz looking forward to its unboxing! ^_^

  4. Dapat ganyan din reaction ninyo sa price ng iPhone 5s. A phone which is being sold for $650 off contract pero $199 lang ang total cost to make.

  5. No one seems to mind that the iPhone 5C costs 28-29K in the Philippines while sporting a plastic case with last year’s internals. Why complain about a great phone with an excellent camera? In fact, if you take out the camera grip accessory you will get a price similar to the current iPhone 5.. but you get a better camera sensor with 41 Megapixels. Why the hate?

  6. for sale!
    binebenta ko po iphone5 ko..
    white
    16GB
    2months palang po saken..
    P18,000.

    dahilan kung bakit ko po binibenta -> ipandadagdag ko lang po pambili ng Nokia Lumia 1020.. kilang kasi budget ko..hehehe
    09167421182. salamat po..

  7. para sa mga naka iphone jan, pwede nyo ba kaming pasahan ng files tulad ng pictures,mp3 etc.. pasahan nyo kaming mga nokia at samsung.. kaya nyo ba?? bulok yang bluetooth nyo iphone… hindi ko nga rin alam kung bkt nilagay pa yang bluetooth na yan sa iphone eh.. wala rin nman kasing kwenta eh.. di ba totoo naman mga pre. magpakatotoo lang tayo dito.. wala kwenta bluetooth ng apple., hindi pwedeng gamitin pang file sharing.. labo pa ng camera.. peace sa lahat.. nagsasabi lang po nh totoo..
