  1. nice pero hold muna ko sa Redmi 3 pro ko waiting for latest redmi/mi phone 18:9 with usb type c… para medyo future proof.

  2. Will this be available sa lazada (xiaomi official) store? Sa mga latest phones nila, puro redmi 5a lang nakita ko. Tempted ako kasi 4,300+ lang. I want a better spec’d xiaomi. Base kasi ako dito sa naga city and online lang the best option ko.

  3. with a price at 9.9Kphp, magkanu kaya ang price sa redmi note 5? rm note5 ang totoong pang tapat sa oppo vivo nokia and huawei. lower this phone’s price so rm note 5 can compete fiercely . after all, only geeks and nerds knows (trust, i think) xiaomi’s reputation
