  19. Mazatoshi /

    Well ng nabasa ko reviews about CM W1 well walang wawa…Compare To MP…MP nalang kayo guys…Beyond system compare to MP tw1 Loser ang CM W1…Coz im a MP user at kahit walang wifi yung akin i can stream,download,surf the net all the time and anywhere without worrying myself to depend on wifi…At durability no doubt sa MP Kaysa sa CM na i heard so many defects pati freinds ko recomended not to buy CM but instead MP nalang daw ako…At sa nagsabi mas maganda mag samsung corby II i think wala kalang sigurong mapagpiliang mga gadgets so ur tryin to sell out those words tryin to trick us na maganda nga sya alam mo! id already used it after 1 to 2 days i disposed it! MALAKI LANG SCREEN NYA UN LANG!…Try mo magpalit minsan kasi kawawa kat nagtyatyaga ka sa isang unit na meron ka!,,,CM spec. Is a sample of tryin hard unit to sell out…I would rather to kiss my ass than buyin that unit.

  20. Mazatoshi /

    MP can be installed browser yung isa kong MP while watching a video after that video ends tapos ko narin syang idownload so kaya bang gawin ng CM yan? wala pang wifi yung gamit ko nun pano pa kung yung my wifi ko pa na tw1 na MP ko, gadgets are only a palamuti if you dont know to optimized the use of.
    and I think the reason why CM isn’t a type of a symbian or android type phone well malulugi sila a tacky phone will always end up cheap till the very end. without expecting too much on it!

    • Enrico ü Cortez /

      Wag tanga please? Yung Feedbacks ang tinitingnan. wala kaming pakialam kung MP user ka, eh baket matibay ba yan? kaya mo bang ibagsak yan nang 2 feet higher? may OPERA MINI 10 BA YAN? EH KAYA NYA BANG BURAHIN YUNG NSMLOG0 DYAN? BAKA PASAHAN KITA NANG COUNTERSTRIKE VIRUS HINDI MO MATANGGAL DYAN. HAHAHAHA MYPHONE? Pinoy ako pero yang gamit na ginawa nang pinoy na hindi ko tatangkilikin. Puta pati cellphone gagayahin ng pinoy? trying hard? FOOT TOUNGE IN A MO po. :)

  39. Maya /

    I have received this phone for my birthday last weekend! I got so excited because as the box says, it’s a WiFi phone…. The problem is, I tried connecting it to our WiFi connection but the websites do not load fully, I can’t log in to fb, tweeter, etc. I thought maybe it’s not compatible with our WiFi bandwidth so I tried using it in other hotspots… Still the same error! I also tried using myglobe wap… it sucks, I still can’t connect! I’ve read previous posts with the same concerns. How come you are not answering the queries? Can you PLEASE help us resolve this WiFi issue?

    Thank you!

  40. bkit pag nag fb walang lumabas sa home page at sa profile… anyare??

  41. bkit pag nag fb walang lalaabas sa home page at sa profile kahit nka fb na ako

  42. wow gusto ko yan

  43. wow ganda

  44. AnonYmOus /

    That only tells us that products from top brands are always more worthy than those new players in the industry. I think chambahan po yan sa stock na makukuha niyo that’s why there is a warranty. I recommend you to buy products from big players(save niyo muna yang pera niyo to earn more) unless talagang nagmamadali kayong magkaroon ng hi-tech na phones. The price of the product justifies its features, durability and performance. (opinion ko lang po :D)
