It was only a couple of years ago when 5 inch HD smartphones with quad core processors would sell for something close to Php10k. Fast forward to today, and we’ve got the Telego Mate with its MT6580 quad core processor, 1GB RAM, and 8GB of internal storage with an SRP of just Php3,399! Not only that, but it also runs Marshmallow 6.0 out of the box!
At that price, it’s hard to expect anything more, but the Telego Mate surprisingly continues to deliver. It comes equipped with a 13mp autofocus camera on the back and 5mp front camera for selfies. Unfortunately, there’s no 4G/LTE, but 3G should be enough for casual users. All in all, it’s not a bad pickup at all.
