3. Cherry Mobile Cubix 3 - The Cubix 3 is a monster right now at 3.5K Pesos. It has identical specs with the Flare 4, but has a bigger 5.5 inch HD screen and uses a larger 16 MP Samsung main camera. It is also pretty stylish and performs very well in gaming.
4. ZTE Blade A711 - Now priced at just 4999 Pesos, the ZTE Blade A711 ranks among the hardest to resist deal today. It's equipped with a full metal unibody frame, 1.5 GHz 64 Bit Snapdragon 615 octa core processor, Adreno 405 GPU, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB storage, and capable main camera with manual controls.
On top of that, it also has a speedy fingerprint scanner for security and high-speed LTE connectivity.
