With a budget of ₱7,000, you can already have a good looking smartphone with superb performance here in the Philippines. This is the price level where ‘bang for the buck’ smartphones from local and international brands target.

Take note that this is a personal ranking based on my experience in writing reviews and articles about these devices here on Pinoy Techno Guide. Share your reactions in the comments section below.

The best smartphone under ₱7,000 in the Philippines for 2015 is none other than the Cherry Mobile Flare X!

It has a 5.5-inch full HD display, 13 Megapixel camera at the back and 5 Megapixel front camera. It runs on a 1.7GHz octa core processor with 3GB of RAM and powered by a 3,000mAh battery.

Honorable Mentions:

The Xiaomi Redmi 2 almost made it to the list but its small screen (4.7 inches) and mere 1GB of RAM brought it down despite having 4G LTE connectivity.

If you care about the brand of your smartphone, the Motorola Moto E and Samsung Galaxy J2 are also good picks for a 7k budget. Both have 4G LTE connectivity but the first one only has 4.5-inch display while the latter suffers from a relatively small 2,000mAh battery.
