If you take a look at the chart that IDC posted last October 1, ultra low-end and low-end devices dominate the price band spectrum of the industry. A year later, you would notice a significant shift in the spectrum where ultra low-end decreased, while both low-end and mid-range increased. Now, why are more Filipinos able to buy mid-range smartphones this year than last year? To understand this, we had to ask an investments and economics expert, Migs Lopez of Critical Index. Migs shared with us that the changes we are seeing this year in the smartphone consumer landscape have something to do with Filipinos’ purchasing power, TRAIN law, and inflation.

The OPPO F9 is indeed coming to the Philippines, as the brand has been teasing it on their Facebook page. What’s even more interesting is that details of a Pro version has also surfaced online, which indicates that it will feature VOOC flash-charge, giving you 2 hours of talk time with just 5 minutes of charging. It’s still not known whether this will also be available locally.The OPPO F9 Pro will come with dual cameras and a triangular-shaped notch gives more display.

In our review of the OPPO F7, we did deem it as the brand’s most capable device to date – Thanks to a combination of premium design, powerful internals, and AI-features that made it a very attractive package for its price.

While, OPPO F9 is just around the corner and may be launched pretty soon, there is still a compelling reason to get the OPPO F7 128GB! Check our comprehensive gaming review below. Let’s face it, one of the most common things that we do in smartphones is play games. So we tried the new 6GB/128GB variant in a number of titles, to see just how huge the impact of having more RAM does, and more importantly, if it’s a worthy upgrade from the 4GB/64GB variant.…
