In this selfie and social media savvy world, mobile phone is everything. People will always feel the need to post where they are, the food they ate, and the people they are with. This is why many people are willing to pay for expensive phones just to make sure that the pictures taken look great when posted.
Do you really have to spend P40,000 on a smartphone when you know very well that new models come in the market?
Don't worry. If you want a quality phone that is within your budget (and less than P10,000 to be exact), then this post is for you. Here are the best smartphones that the average Juan can afford:
Vivo Y53C - P5,990.00
The price is definitely within your budget, but don't think you won't get a quality phone. It has 8MP rear camera that allows you to capture precious moments with a clearer vision. It also offers Ultra HD photos, triple card slots, 2 GB RAM, and smart screen flash so that your face shines even with low light.
You'll definitely love the unibody design too.
Huawei Y6 - P5,990.00
This phone from Huawei comes with a 5.7-inch HD plus FullView display for better and wider vision. If you enjoy listening to music or watching videos, this phone comes with Histen technology that provides optimized sound, similar to the sound coming from movie theaters. The rear camera is at 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera
Asus Zenfone Max Plus - P7,995.00
One of the excellent features this phone is the battery life. Dubbed as Asus Zenfone's "Battery King," the high-capacity 4130mAh battery allows you to up to 21 hours of web browsing, up to 13 hours of video playback, and 26 hours of 3G talk time, but not all at the same time. The phone is also packed with power management technologies to prolong battery life.
Apart from the battery life, this phone has rear dual camera with 16MP and 120-degree wide angle for the second camera. Compared to the other smartphones, this one has 8MP front camera, which means you get to take better pictures.
Oppo A3s - P7,999 to P9,999
Smartphone is life and sadly, people will feel empty and bored without it. The good news is Oppo A3s has a battery life of up to 18 hours continuous use, which is not bad, right? It also comes with Rear Dual camera, AI selfie feature, SnapDragon Octa-Core CPU for faster operating experience, and facial unlock. In case you want to keep the party going with music, you can turn your phone on and activate the Music party function.
Nonetheless, the difference will lie on the RAM. The higher the RAM, the more expensive it will be.
Vivo Y71 - P8,990.00
If you're always on your phone, then this one is for you. One of its best features is the extended battery life so you don't have to worry about running out of battery while you're out.

In case you enjoy singing, go ahead and activate its Karaoke mode. You can have your concert anytime, anywhere.
Vivo Y81 - P9,999.00, but currently on sale at P8,990.00
