This KingCom Android Phone Is Php 99,999 From Lazada

KingCom Lazada

What makes this phone so special? Absolutely nothing

What’s the most expensive phone you’ve ever come across? Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 Edge? Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus? Well for us, it’s this – A basic, 1GHz KingCom Android smartphone with 256MB of RAM, listed in Lazada for a whopping 99,999. That’s more than two iPhone 6 Plus’ put together. That’s enough for a downpayment for a nice car (or SUV).

Obviously this is an error on the part of Lazada, probably the work of a coder that hasn’t had enough sleep (we can relate, hehe) or a test page that someone forgot to remove. Hey Lazada, might want to fix this page, yes?

[UPDATE] Lazada has already taken down the offending post, and it looks to have been an honest mistake. Even the best fall down sometimes, right?

  1. I did once attempted to buy an iPhone 6 plus in gold 128gb for just P2,999. Unfortunately, they called me saying that it was an error on their part. I should have just insist that I must have that phone because I already paid it.

  2. Diosko…click-bait article??? Why would the author stoop this low? Geeez, tao lang….nagkakamali, namannnnnnn

    1. Buti naman may nakapansin. Cheers mate! Technology news/articles shouldn’t be like this. It doesn’t evenly make sense.

  3. Click bait… Palaging ganyan sa Lazada. Minsan sobrang mahal, minsan sobrang mura. Pero common sense lang naman yan.

    Just like every other filipino run tech blog sites… Pera lang habol. What a shame. LOL.

  4. Wow. What piece of technology is this?
    I bet that the Government had made this phone and make the most efficient OS in existence.

  5. its probably a test sku or item. they must be testing some site feature and need a dummy item while doing testing by QA team. notice that the price really doesnt match the specs. its like they raised the price to absurd levels in order to deter rational consumers from purchasing the item.
