If you are not hyped up for the pre-order period for the much-awaited iPhone 15 series, older Android phones are getting big discounts this payday weekend (Oct 13-15). While they may be a few generations old, these phones still have great hardware to boot and can compete with newer phones.
Brands are holding big sales this payday weekend, and we curate the best phone deals for you. Check out our picks here:
HONOR 70 – from Php 26,990 to Php 18,990
With a Php 8k discount, the HONOR 70 is an absolute steal especially if you are in a photography. It’s the only phone to have a 50-megapixel ultrawide camera with autofocus at this price segment, and those who have reviewed it have high praises for its overall camera performance as a mid-range phone. Making the deal even sweeter is its 120hz curved AMOLED display, slim body, and a very capable Snapdragon 778G+ processor.
The Reno6 5G may be 2 years old at this point, but it is one stylish phone with an aluminum frame that makes it feel more solid and robust. Its Dimensity 900 processor is still good for 2023 standards, and it gets niceties like a 90hz AMOLED display, 65w charging, and an in-display fingerprint scanner. With a Php 10k discount, the Reno6 is a stylish mid-range phone that’s compelling with what it has to offer.
realme 10 4G – from Php 12,999 to Php 7,799 (8GB/128GB)
The hefty price cut on the realme 10 4G makes it a really great budget phone to buy for under Php 8k. The Helio G99 processor is already a win, and it gets even better with its 90hz AMOLED display that has an in-display fingerprint scanner–a feature you’ll rarely see on a budget phone. Software is not an issue, as the realme 10 4G is expected to get Android 14 next year.
POCO X5 5G – from Php 15,990 to Php 9,990 (8GB/256GB)
POCO is known for its value-for-money reputation, and the under Php 10k price tag for the X5 5G is a runaway winner. The combination of a Snapdragon 695 processor and a 120hz AMOLED display are what makes the X5 5G offer incredible value for money, and its 8GB/256GB configuration makes it competitive against potential rivals in the under Php 10k segment.
Xiaomi 12 – from Php 39,999 to Php 19,999
We save the best payday weekend deal for last, as this promo price on the Xiaomi 12 is insane. Considering that this is a flagship phone in 2022, this is the absolute best deal you can get. For Php 20k or 50% off, the Xiaomi 12 offers everything you’d expect on a flagship phone: Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, wireless charging, 8K video recording, 120hz curved AMOLED display, and a respectable camera setup that’s led by an OIS-assisted 50-megapixel main shooter.
