The battle between international and local budget brands isn’t just about the specs, but pricing as well. Some of the best phones have flopped despite rocking some awesome specs just because they couldn’t get the pricing right. Well, the Firefly Mobile Allure 64 LTE isn’t one of those phones. In fact, it gets almost everything right. It features some of the best specs you can get on a budget smartphone while surprisingly retailing for less than Php10k!
The Firefly Mobile Allure 64 LTE packs a 5.5 inch HD IPS display, 64-bit 1.7GHz octa-core processor, 3GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage. You’re also getting a 13mp Sony-made camera on the back, 8mp front camera, and LTE support, all while running Android 5.0 Lollipop on a 2,900mAh battery. Love it or hate it, the body shamelessly copies the iPhone 6 Plus, which makes it a gorgeous phone right down to the iPhone-esque circular home button.
The Allure 64 LTE doesn’t have any glaring weaknesses, although the HD resolution isn’t the best you can get on a smartphone these days. Still, with its Php7,999 price tag, the Firefly Mobile Allure 64 LTE is probably the best deal you can get on a smartphone right now!
