  1. i'd go for diamond for the 12mp camera and watch HD movies. the only games i'll put there are Angry Birds and Fruit Samurai, or any other games that a 4 year old can play (for my daughter). but if diamond vs OHD, i'd go OHD :)

    3. para sa mga medyo tamad mag google at switch tab, mas maganda kung meron royal rumble ng pinagpipiliian ng mga noypis. (Cherry mobile OHD, and Skyfire 2.0, Starmobile Diamond, flagship ng O+, at MyPhone.


      :D

    4. Kryptonian...dapat flagship droid lang na same specs para maganda laban...i'll do one pagbalik ko galing mt. isarog.

      dual core phones with same specs like SM Diamond, CM Omega HD, MP A919 Duo, O+ 8.12
      quad core phones like CM Skyfire 2.0 and Flame 2.0, O+ 8.15, and MP A919i Duo.
      then compare din natin pinoy flagship droids versus Galaxy S3/S4, HTC 0ne, Xperia Z/ZL, etc.

      let the game begin....

  4. I must say although 12MP ang sa diamond, halos pareho lang sila ng quality ng Skyfire 2. so i'd choose Skyfire 2 just because of it's fast processor.

    1. You are right here sir/maam. Particular po ako sa price eh..kaya skyfire din ako (bias..hahahaha). But the Starmobile Diamond sa BSI cam kaya ok na ok po quality ng pictures. :)

    2. skyfire 2.0...kasi kung need ko nang 12mp BSI camera dun ako kay Omega HD. lets face it...way cheaper si skyfire and Omega HD kesa kay SM Diamond. di ko talaga gets kung bakit di nakikipagsabayan si Starmobile when it comes to pricing kay Cherry Mobile. yung pricing nila malapit na kila Lenovo, O+, and Alcatel. ~vinci24

      Delete
    3. hahaha price nga ang una sa isip...hehehe tama ka sir vinci starmobile should go for lesser price para makasabay sa sales ng cherry. But I guess di nila kaya isacrifice ang quality ng phones. :D

      Delete
    4. kasi as stated sa blog ko...same lang naman sila nang supplier ni CM...CM OMD is rebranded IQ6 while while SMD is a rebranded IQ4, so quality is not an issue here since galing sila sa isang manufacturer. the only difference is the front camera...2mp for OMD and 3mp for SMD...mas mataas pa nang 100mAh yung battery ni OMD kesa kay SMD. parang di justified yung price nya na almost 2k higher para lang sa 1mp na front camera. mali marketing strategy. think of CM na nauubusan pa sila nang stocks dahil sa mababang presyo at the same time magandang specs.

  8. bought skyfire 2.0 this morning and satisfied naman ako. tanong ko lang, talaga ba mabilis ma-lowbat and bat ng skyfire 2.0?

    1. yeah i think mabilis ma low bas specially pag lagi naka On yung wifi or 3g.
      Pag nasa bahay kasi ako lagi naka on yung Wifi sa skyfire ko, pansin ko na good for one day lang.
      Pero pag naka off yung wifi, brightness set to Automatic and GPS off mas matagal ang standby nya.
      Pansin ko din na mahina yung vibrate alert nya hehe.

      So far i think i can manage. Hindi pa naman nag cacause ng problem yung phone ko ngayon. ;)

    1. If nasa bahay kasi consistent ang wifi signal. If sa ibang lugar mawawala po signal strength kaya umiinit. :)

  12. para saken e malaking advantage ung 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 Quad-Core ng skyfire.. maganda nga ang display masasaalang alang nmn un ung performance...tama ba?? confuse kasi ako e..di nanaman masama ang 8MP camera at 5-inch qHD IPS scratch resistant ??

    1. Sa understanding ko, wala po masyadong connection between display size and processor. Yung LCD mas connected sa battery kaysa sa processor. :)
