    i can’t find any sign of an LED Flash at the picture of the back. May flash ba talaga?

    And, does it really have a Gorilla Glass screen? I’ve read somewhere that it is the G300 that has Gorilla Glass. Please confirm. Thanks.

      oops yes there’s no LED flash, sorry for the confusion. but huawei confirms that this one has gorilla glass.

    Got this phone already for my sister.

    Uunahin ko na sa problema. First is pag nag save ka ng contacts at nag text sayo kung ang nilagay mo ay ex. 09171234567 hindi lalabas ang name niya (Dapat gagawin monmg +639171234567), then kung ginawa mo naman yung sequence ng +63 at tumawag naman sayo, hindi naman lalabas sa call yung name nung contacts na yun, dapat 0917. So far ito lang ang bug niya (I think hindi small issue ito para hindi agad bigyan ng solution).

    The rest is okay. Sa price niya worth it naman, lalo na kung wala yung bug na nasabi ko sa taas.

    • aissa

      ndi pO kya pdeng i-save ung nO. ng cOntact in bOth +63..and 09.. foRmats?? im thinking 2 buy diz fOne na kc..want 2 knOw Lng f ok tLga xa.. tnx!

    This device.. is selling like hotcakes. I’ve been searching this phone in some SM and Ayala malls and guess what? OUT OF STOCK lagi, and take note.. ang dami pa daw naka-reserve! It’s been secretly going to be like Cherry Mobile Flare when it comes to this out-of-stock mania.. maganda yung device kasi as in. And the looks of the device.. an expensive and premium looking phone. :) Will not stop until I find one.

    • Mel

      Same here. Still looking until now. Please advise if you already found one (where you bought it). Thanks. God bless.

  • Keith Vargas

    bibili na lang ako ng o+ 8.52, almost the same naman. mas madaling maghanap

  • cipres

    may available na ba nito ngayon? sabi kasi dis month daw darating sa mga branches.
