Do you remember when keypad phones are still on the line? Well according to my father, Keypad phones especially Nokia 3310 is the Iphone 7 plus of 20's.

The Nokia 3310 is a GSM mobile phone announced on September 1, 2000, and released in the fourth quarter of the year, replacing the popular Nokia 3210. It sold very well, being one of the most successful phones with 126 million units sold worldwide. The phone is still widely acclaimed and has gained a cult status due to its durability. It is one of Nokia's most iconic devices.

Several variants of the 3310 have been released, including the Nokia 3315, 3320, 3330, 3350, 3360, 3390 and 3395.

 That time, Nokia 3310 is the most stylish, on the trend phone and of course one of the expensive which cost 5,000 php to 6,000 php (100 dollars to 120 dollars) I think in this day, the present, that kind of price is considered as an affordable phone and budget friendl

Remember Nokia's famous games that hooked up everyone? (Snakes, Space Impact and etc) Even I, used to play games with Nokia phone and happily-contented in using it even though it is not colored yet. but to this day, Games from the past is no longer alive and kicking. using Smart phones you can play a lot of online games, android games and apple games, that will surely satisfied you.

I saw this phone personally in SKK outlet here in our place. It is handy and has a resemblance with iphone 6 and iphone 6s. I recommend this phone for people who want an Iphone look a like phone. I already got a phone a year ago which has an resemblance with iphone and I got it for 3,500 php (70 dollars) and when I saw this phone I instantly questioned myself why I didn't see this phone earlier!! It has a very smooth complexion and I think it is good for people who need a smart phone in very low cost with a very stylish way.

Let me mention the camera itself. for 3,600 php (around 70 dollars) it is a good deal! You can take a clear shot in bright places and a decent shot in dark places. (don't compare it with iphones) I've seen other people used this and they upload it in social media/internet, all I can say is that it is really good for it's price 

You can go to any SKK stores nationwide to have one, or visit some online stores ~



I've seen this before and when the time I touches it, I plan to save money just to buy it (Unluckily, My uncle bought me a phone from US and its stopped me from buying it)

I can say that, Firefly Aurii Fusion body is essential and nice to handle. If you love texting and messaging, this phone is for you. You can take it everywhere and anytime without the worried of the phone being damage

5-inch HD IPS display
2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3
1.3GHz Quad Core
Mediatek MT6580 quad-core CPU
Mali-400MP2 GPU
16GB storage
microSD up to 128GB
13MP Sony sensor + 5MP AF dual-rear cameras w/ LED Flash
5MP BSI front camera
Bluetooth 4.0
Fingerprint scanner
Android 7.0 Nougat
2,500mAh Battery

Good thing about this phone is that it has Fingerprint scanner (Security purposes) and also it's android is 7.0 Nougat which is more essential in handling apps. The price is cheap for its specs. The Brand Firefly is somehow relevant in durability. They have a height fall test in some of their Unit, so I believe that this one is durable in some cause (Just don't drop it too much)

The 13 mp Sony sensor cam is also an interesting subject to look for. But I think it is not that clear compare to iphones but when I tested it before, The Camera is reasonable and can take a shot with clear pictures. I've seen it myself but I can't accurately state it's camera ability because the lightning in Malls are good in almost any camera.



I've never seen Cherry Mobile Flare S4 in actual but My Friends and Uncle told me that this phone is strong enough to last for years. The specs are simple but effective and the phone's built is somehow premium. If you want to be stylish but you do not have enough budget, You can go for this phone. The Phone's Price is 3999 php (80 dollars)

It's a powerful device in which you can put anything essential to your needs, you can play hardcore games (like what my friends said) though I'm not sure about the camera but It's a risk I'm willing to take. Octa core processor for only 4000 php? It's nice deal right? Lollipop is a nice Operating System too ~

The Glassy-Classy pattern at the back of the phone makes it more elegant and unique in its style. You can choose whether to have White or Black one. (But me I preferred the black one because the patterns is visible and makes sense)



a Smart Phones which you can bring anywhere and you are comfortable with. If you like smaller phones then go with it, if you want the bigger one then go. Just choose the most android/IOS phones that will suits your need.


Cheaper but Great phones. Expensive but surely high quality phones. If you don't mind about the brand and looking for a cheaper one, There are a few stores that might have what you looking for.


a Smart Phone. Capture the memories, connect with everyone, learn everything and share something. Just Be GOOD and use it properly. ~
