Top Premium Smartphones Under 30K


Looking a good smartphone matching your P30,000 budget but can’t afford the flagships Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6? There are actually really good smartphones out there with good user experience, good build quality, great camera or should we say cameras, and guaranteed software updates. We have listed some of them for you to check it out.

Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro

This device is almost pushing 30k for its specs. We actually find it a bit pricey but the excellent build quality and great camera can justify the price. We have yet to review this to test the phone fully but we can give our happy nod if you want to buy one. This is priced at P27,990.

Huawei P10

The successor of the Huawei P9 is arriving soon. The Huawei P10 is a worthy upgrade if you own its predecessor. The camera and overall performance has improved a lot. Though the price went up a bit, it is still within the 30k budget limit. If you can spare more cash, you can also take a look at the Huawei P10 Plus with its better camera tech, bigger display, bigger battery. Oh by the way, this is Huawei’s 2017 flagship smartphone. There is not official price yet but our guesstimate is around P28,000.

OnePlus 3T

Yes fellow techies, OnePlus 3T is now available in the Philippines. The flagship killer is ready to dominate our smartphone market. Great hardware, great camera tech, top of the line specs for half the price of the Galaxy S8. We are about to get our review unit soon and we can give our nod if you want to buy one. Just drop by any Digital Walker stores to grab one. Price is at P24,990.

OPPO F3 Plus

This is honestly our favorite smartphone of this bunch. The OPPO F3 Plus has a wonderful selfie camera, great hardware though becoming generic and ColorOS is honestly our favorite custom UI on top of Android. It give a fluid experience. The rear 16 megapixel camera is also great. Price is at P23,990.

ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom

Do want those dual selfie cameras of the  OPPO F3 Plus at the front? Then the ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom is for you. It has the same camera set up from the Apple iPhone 7 Plus with its 12 megapixel regular lens and another 12 megapixel camera with 2.3x optical zoom. It is truly our favorite Zenfone today!

Vivo V5 Plus

The Vivo V5 Lite has a different approach when it comes to selfies. Instead of a wide angle groupfie. Vivo want you to have a great bokeh selfie. That is how its dual selfie camera works. This is priced at P19,990

Nokia 6

Yes folks, Nokia is back! The Nokia 6 is coming to the Philippines sometime this Q2 2017. We will have a very stock Android 7.0 Nougat UI which can be found on the Google Pixel. We’ve seen the Chinese Nokia 6 and we don’t like the UI. Good thing our version will come with stock UI. No price has been announced yet but we guess it would be around P20,000 or less.
