FLAGSHIP FOR LESS: Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra

From P69,990 to P37,990

Arguably one of the best deals during the Lazada 12.12 sale. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra packs a massive 6.9-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2.0 Infinity Display, 12GB RAM, and a ridiculous 108-megapixel primary camera. It’s a beast of a phone and you can get it at almost half the original SRP come December 12.

If you want a phone that you can “show off” because of a novel form factor, consider the Samsung Z Flip. It’s one of the early foldable smartphones with a 6.7-inch AMOLED foldable display. It runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor so you can pretty much do anything with it. Only drawback from our experience is battery life… but hey if you want a phone that will get you noticed, this is it. SRP is P55,990 and discounted price come December 12 is P45,990.

From P26,990 to P18,990

This Lazada 12.12 might be the best opportunity to upgrade to a 5G capable device. All the major telcos have been investing heavily in their 5G network so if you will buy a new phone, it makes sense to make sure it has 5G connectivity. One of the nicer devices on sale that you might want to consider is the Poco F2 Pro 5G. It’s a beast of a phone that rocks the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor making it an incredibly powerful device for its price. It also has a cute pop-up selfie camera (yay no notch). Definitely a great buy for a phone under P20,000. Click here to add to cart now.

If Poco isn’t a brand that doesn’t connect with you, a great alternative would be the newly released Xiaomi Mi 10T 5G. SRP is P19,990 but it will get a P2,000 discount come December 12 which means you can get it for just P17,990. We expect stocks of this to disappear fast so make sure you check out midnight as soon as the sale starts.

From P10,990 to P9,990

When it comes to sheer value, the POCO X3 NFC tops the list. It’s pretty much exactly what you need in a workhorse daily phone — it has a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G processor, a generous 6.67-inch FHD+ DOtDisplay, and a 64-megapixel AI quad camera set-up. It even has a 20-megapixel selfie camera and a generous 5,160mah battery with 33W fast charging. All of that for just P9,990. Crazy. Click here to add to cart now.

If you’re a realme fan, a great option would be the realme Narzo 20. It’s a good gaming entry-level phone with the Helio G85 processor and a ridiculous 6,000mAh battery. It also has a 48MP AI triple camera. SRP is P7,990 but come December 12 you get P500 OFF so it goes down to P7,490.

Now if you want a decent Samsung smartphone for around P10,000, you can opt for the Samsung Galaxy M31. The phone has a big 6.4-inch Infinity-U display which is a joy to watch movies or YouTube on (Super AMOLED FHD+ FTW). It runs on an octa-core processor combined with 6GB of RAM and a massive 6,000mah battery pack.

PHONE TO GIVE AS A GIFT (Under P5,000): Xiaomi Redmi 9

From P6,990 to P4,990

If you ‘re looking for an affordable (aka cheap) phone to give as a gift, the Xiaomi Redmi 9 is your best bet.
