Pinoys: What do you MAINLY look for in buying a phone?

Postby stupid_jerk » Thu May 10, 2018 6:58 am

    

My friend just presented his thesis for his Masters course, with a focus on Filipino mobile phone consumers and whether tech youtube channels make sense at this point. (I honestly think his thesis needed more polishing but he passed so congrats!)

In line with this, I understand the whole android versus ios thing and how one group are amazed at a feature which has been available on the other for some time using the other platform.

Just to add premise, I know that having more than one of these options in the poll will be ideal however what if you can only use one as your main measurement?

My question is... for you guys, what is it really that you are looking for when you buy a phone? Note: I did not include calling, texting, etc. as it is a given that a mobile phone should be able to do that.

Thanks to those who will respond and share their thoughts.

Interesting answer. If it were me, I would agree however my friend's thesis actually yielded a different result, using 1000+ respondents in Metro Manila so I'd like to see if his results is consistent with forumers here in Misso.

Functionality with user-friendly features. It doesn't have to be that expensive. After a year, in most likelihood another new product shall be introduced and flood the market. Obsolescence factor is being taken into account. And in case it is stolen or lost unintentionally the loss wouldn't be too hard to bear.

I've been using Sony-slash-Ericsson and nothing else since 1994, so the answer is "brand". I'm unapologetic about the brands I love and care about.
