5 Nokia smartphones receive major price cuts

Promo lasts until March 31 only



Nokia released a slew of smartphones during the recently concluded Mobile World Congress, but that doesn’t mean the reinvigorated brand is done giving to its fans.

In the Philippines, Nokia is slashing off prices for five of its Android phones, namely the Nokia 8, Nokia 6, Nokia 5, Nokia 3, and Nokia 2.

The biggest and best discount hits the Nokia 8. From PhP 29,990, Nokia’s 2017 flagship is now only PhP 24,990. That’s a great deal for a premium handset launched just seven months ago with high-end specs and Zeiss optics.

Next up is the 2017 model of the Nokia 6. The midrange smartphone is down to PhP 10,990 from PhP 11,990. Similarly, the slightly lower-specced Nokia 5 also gets a PhP 1,000 discount — now just PhP 8,990.

As for the Nokia 3, the entry-level phone only gets a PhP 500 markdown — bringing it to PhP 6,490 — but every new purchase comes with a free JBL Bluetooth speaker worth PhP 1,599.

Finally, we have the Nokia 2. Buy two units, and you get to pay a lowered amount of PhP 10,000. One unit normally costs PhP 5,290.

This promotion lasts from March 1 to 31, 2018. You can find these deals at any authorized Nokia reseller, including MemoXpress and Argomall.

ASUS ZenFone Max Plus (M1) gets a price cut

The affordable phone just got cheaper



Just as we’re expecting ASUS to launch the new ZenFone Max Pro in the Philippines, they gave their other ZenFone Max variant a price cut. This makes it more affordable and one of the best cheaper options for budget-oriented consumers.

The ZenFone Max Plus (M1) had its suggested retail price dropped to PhP 9,995 from PhP 11,995 when it got launched. The so-called “Battery King” is ASUS’ first 18:9 phone announced back in January.

To entice consumers more about the price cut, ASUS is also raffling off three JBL T450BT headphones. Simply share and like ASUS’ post on their Facebook page from June 1 until June 15.

The ZenFone Max Plus (M1) boasts a large 4130mAh battery that’s claimed to last for up to 26 days in standby mode. It also has dual rear cameras, 4GB of memory, 32GB of expandable storage.

Planet Cable offers bundled 3Mbps unlimited broadband for PhP 674

Unlimited internet!



Planet Cable might have the cheapest broadband plan available in the Philippines. And before you guys rant about throttling and data caps, they only offer unlimited internet. The catch, as always, is the coverage area.

If you are looking to install fixed broadband at your place, you might want to check out Planet’s latest offers. Too bad they only offer their residential broadband plans bundled with their existing cable subscription.

The cheapest available plan has a monthly service fee of PhP 674 which includes a Lite Cable plan with 36 SD channels and 3Mbps unlimited internet. Not bad, right? If you want slightly faster speeds, a 5Mbps bundled plan is priced at PhP 824/month while a 10Mbps bundled plan goes for PhP 1,324/month.

The best value would be the 20Mbps bundled plan for PhP 1,699/month. It’s considerably cheaper than PLDT or Globe’s 20Mbps fiber plan, plus it also comes with a cable subscription. It doesn’t beat Converge’s FiberX 1500 plan that has 25Mbps speed, though.

Planet Cable’s coverage is pretty limited in select areas of Antipolo, Cavite, Batangas, Iloilo, and Laguna. It’s best to contact them first through their Facebook page or website.
