Galaxy Note 3’s Philippine Price: Worth It or Forget It

In the Philippines, it was officially released yesterday (You can read details of the launch as reported by Digital Spidey) . However, last Tuesday, one of the readers from YugaTech already spotted the price of the Note 3 as reported in the website. The price  is a whopping P36990 for the LTE version. 

Before you judge the price, let’s see whether the specs can justify its hefty price tag.

The Note 3 has a huge screen at 5.6 inches and has a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. It’s powered by a 2.265 GHz quad-core processor, 3 GB RAM, and comes with the latest Android 4.3 Jellybean. The Note 3 also has a 13 MP rear camera and 2 MP front facing camera. And of course, it still comes with the popular S Pen.

Clearly, the specs are pretty amazing compared to the most popular smartphones in the industry right now.

Based on its appearance and specs, the Note 3 has the body and the brains. It’s retailed at 649 pounds in the UK, which converts to around $1000 dollars in the US.

As reported by, the price of P36990 sounds about right. This price was spotted in Samsung’s outlet in SM Megamall.

Personally, I’m impressed with the Note 3’s under the hood. But even though I like it in terms of its specs and features, I would not spend more than P30,000 for a smartphone.

What about you, guys? What do you think of the Note 3’s price? Is it worth it? Or you’d rather forget about it and wait for the iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C perhaps? 🙂
