Huawei didn’t launch any new phone this week, but they’re still grabbing the attention of Filipinos by offering significant cash discounts for their current flagship handsets.
In what seems to be permanent markdowns, the Mate 10 is now PhP 29,990 (from PhP 32,990) and the Mate 10 Pro is only PhP 36,990 (from PhP 38,990).
Both phones offer a large display with minimal bezels, artificial intelligence to boost performance through time, and some of the best cameras we’ve ever seen on smartphones. You can find out more about them in our comprehensive reviews.
These discounts also seem timely with Huawei set to launch their new P20 series of devices later this month in Paris, France. Three phones are anticipated to be released, and they’re expected to have even better AI integration and camera performance.
Razer Phone has major discount ahead of successor launch
From the official source
Just as Razer subtly announced that the Razer Phone 2 is on the way, their original Razer Phone is experiencing a major discount on the company’s website.
Go the Razer Phone’s official product page, and you’ll be greeted by this text:
“Limited time offer: Get US$ 300 off your Razer Phone. Use Code WOOHOO on cart.”
This deal brings Razer’s one and only phone down to just US$ 399 from its original US$ 699 price tag. That’s a discount of about 42 percent!
That’s great for a gamer-centric smartphone with hardware that’s still competitive with this year’s best. However, Razer didn’t specify how long this promotion will last.
In our own review, we praised the Razer Phone for its great balance of power and entertainment features, as well as the long-lasting battery and incredible display.
Even if the Razer Phone 2 is bound to show up soon, grabbing the first-gen model at this price is a steal.
ASUS ZenFone 5 gets its price slashed in early holiday sale
It’s about time!
We’ve just entered September, and you know what that means? The holiday season is starting in the Philippines!
Yes, it’s premature, but this also means we’ll be seeing more discounts and sales from our favorite brands. The latest one to do so is ASUS with its popular ZenFone 5.
The company’s flag-bearer got its price slashed from PhP 19,995 to only PhP 17,995. There doesn’t seem to be a limit to this promotion, so you can taking your time in considering one.
The ZenFone 5 is best known for its AI-powered cameras, 6.2-inch display with a 90 percent screen-to-body ratio, and reliable Snapdragon 636 processor.
ASUS may have also been considering the rising competition from rival brands when discounting this smartphone. Honor has a bestseller in its hands with the Honor Play, and the Pocophone F1 is gradually finding its way to more markets this month.

ASUS ZenFone Max (M1) and Max Plus (M1) receive major discounts
Get ’em while they’re hot
The entry-level and midrange smartphone segments are getting fiercer than ever. While ASUS doesn’t have anything new to offer lately, the Philippine branch is at least cutting down the prices of a couple of their more popular models.
To be specific, the ZenFone Max (M1) and ZenFone Max Plus (M1) are getting their prices slashed in the Philippines. The former now retails for PhP 8,495 (from PhP 8,995) and the latter is currently going for PhP 8,995 (all the way down from PhP 11,995).
These phones carry the Max label for a reason. Both devices have a battery capacity of 4000mAh or more, making them endurance champs — or in ASUS’ words, “Battery Kings.”
