For the year 2020, I’ve settled on publishing a top 10 list of smartphones in the Philippines each month based on pageviews on Pinoy Techno Guide.

The majority of the winners are models released late last year except for the Huawei Y9s which entered the list at number 9. Xiaomi, Realme, Vivo, and OPPO also have smartphones on the list.
