  1. QUBE Colonial Octacore is to beat this Aug2014…
    Dual sim (Micro + Reg.);
    Replaceable batt w/ MicroSD card, up to 32 GB expandable storage;
    5.5″ IPS screen; 2gb RAM; 13mp AF cam + flash; etc.
    Only P9,990, P2k DP…zero 6-mo CCard instalmnt?

    1. Oh i forgot to mention it’s front camera. Yet, ultra slim and so elegant (white or black, to choose from), they included a FREE leatherette bookcase cover for the early birds… I think it’s worth P400+.
      From not so advertised non-Chinese company that specialize on computers and CCTVs, entry level to phablet market.
      (My personal rating: 9/10 😉
