StarMobile Navi's competitor is not CM Flare S but CM Sonic 2.0 - parehas na parehas ang specs with Sonic 2.0 priced at 3,999; nice try StarMobile but no.

GbSb said...

Parang mas Ok yung Kata venus 3 kesa sa flare s no?

GbSb said...

Yung Kata VENUS 3 ay dual core, 1600 mAh ang battery at P3,699 na lang siya while Cherry Mobile FLARE S ay quad core at 1 GB RAM plus 8 MP rear camera at mas mahal ng konti.

Depende po sa budget mo peru ok naman ang VENUS 3.
