    Ang cute ng Hello Kitty phone! Pwede ba dyan ang what's app (?) and face time?

    Wala ako alam sa phone kasi. I assume na those are the pinaka sulit na phone since those are the touchscreen phones that I see with close friends and family (samsung or iphone) Meron din iba naka Note but it's too big for me.

    Naisip ko kasi there are apps na only those 2 phones can do? Kasi it's the most prolific phone now.

    Another reason why I want a smartphone. I don't wanna end up totally clueless with today's technology, because I'm getting there. I also wanna utilise what technology is offering today. If it's necessary to get a data plan if I have a smart phone then I have no choice.

    I was leaning towards the S3 na but my friends and family that are using Apple keep on convincing me that Apple is better because it's more matibay and faster response. I also noticed na ang tindi ng brand loyalty sa Apple. Ganun talaga siya kaganda or because Apple makes it hard to switch to another brand?

    If I get an Iphone my Mom will subsidize the cost naman but I'll have to wait until she goes to the US. Since I rejected her offer to buy me an iphone before, sasabihin niya panindigan ko yan choice ko, so the most that I can get is a subsidy. BUT I don't mind paying for another brand like Samsung if it is a better phone naman talaga.

    Samsung S3 is around 20K-25K, whereas Samsung S3 mini is around 15K.

    Too expensive for me though.

    naahhh! cathy, don't listed to them. if you have the moolah and can afford the most expensive model without breaking the bank, then bring it on!

    pare-pareho lang yan...why not buy the most expensive and enjoy it, pag naluma then buy the newest again..its a cycle...enjoy it if you can, titipirin mo sarili mo eh? buying these gadgets won't make you rich or make you dirt poor naman...so enjoy, single ka naman...

    ganyan lang yan dapat ang rules mo pag nagiisip ka kung bibilhin or hinde, pag binili mo maghihirap ka ba pag hinde naman yayaman ka ba? if answers are both no, then bilhin mo

    Okay lang naman sakin to spend basta worth it. Long time user kasi ako ng phone kaya kailangan ko matibay. I HATE switching phones kasi yung contacts, messages, pics ko ililipat ko na naman.

    *coder ang cute ng iphone ang daming accessory. Yung s3 parang wala ako nakikita. Hesitant lang ako sa Apple kasi nga daw bawat galaw may bayad unlike android na free lang apps. Saka PC user kasi ako, baka mahirapan ako sa Iphone.

    IMO a smartphone is just a phone if it doesn't have a data plan (unlimited preferably). Sayang lang ang capabilities nya. Mag 5110 ka na lang

    Another way to justify the cost would be to say it's a gaming platform. Mag PSP ka na lang kung ganun

    When my wife got her Galaxy Note that came with unlisurf we initially counted the 1000 pesos a month as amortization lang. After a few days di ko na halos mahiram ang phone nya. Sobrang natuwa dahil online na sya all the time. The big screen also helps a lot here. Ako nakiki-tether na lang Pati laptop naalikabokan na lang. Ba't pa ako magtatyaga sa Windows kung browsing lang naman pakay ko.

    So BTT: S3 or iPhone5? Biased ako sa Android pero dapat may konting kalikot skills ka. For the technophobes the iPhone is the best pa din. Wag lang maiinggit sa laki ng screen ng iba Ang ayaw ko lang sa iPhone ay ang file transfer ek ek nya. Ba't kasi di pwede i-treat na lang as a flash drive.

    I'm confused, ang assumption ko mas madali gamitin ang S3? Mas user friendly pala ang iPhone?

    just buy both.....

    problem solve....

    yung eldest ko she owns both.... but she like S3 more... nagagamit pa nya sa school

    kaya naman daw bumile din sya ng IPONE5 kasi mas sikat daw kasi yun... may wow factor...? (iba daw ang dating sa classmates nya)


    Samsung NOTE pala... hindi S3 sorry....

    Nga pala if you're seriously considering the Iphone 5 why not take a look at the Note 2. Mas malapit sila in price.

    IMO user-friendly in the sense na limited lang pwede mo kalikutin sa kanya.
