The Nokia 3310 is Currently One of the Best Selling Phones in the Philippines?

Yes, you read that right

One of the biggest gadget retail chains in the country is MemoXpress. They have branches in all the major malls: SM, Ayala, Gaisano, Robinson’s, Ortigas, and several others. They sell pretty much all relevant and significant mobile phone brands. What’s surprising though is their recent announcement of their top 10 selling phones in their stores.

For the period of September 04-10 the top selling phones in their stores were Nokia feature phones. The revived Nokia 3310 sits comfortably on the second spot while the Nokia 105 DS is the king of the hill.

This is just mind-boggling. You would think that a vast majority of Filipinos would see the benefit of buying a smartphone versus a feature phone in this day and age but apparently that’s not the case.

It’s good to see though that great bang-for-buck smartphones are also on the list, notably the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro, Huawei Y5 2017, Vivo Y53, and the OPPO F3. You can click the links to the devices to read our respective reviews.

  1. I still use a feature phone (Samsung B350e). It’s actually very handy. I don’t panic or worry when my “main” phone drains while commuting. Those who ignore these basic necessities are just snobs.
