Congratulations to this month’s number 1 smartphone in PH – the Huawei Nova 7i!

Huawei nova 7i

The Huawei nova 7i smartphone in Crush Green color.

It offers an impressive set of features including a Kirin 810 chipset, 8GB RAM, and 48MP quad cameras for an official price of ₱13,990 only.

Huawei has been hard at work these days promoting new smartphones running on Huawei Mobile Services instead of Google’s apps. One of the company’s strategies seems to be making its smartphones extremely affordable. The Huawei Y7p and Huawei Y7 are also on the list.


Realme C3

The Realme C3 smartphone in Frozen Blue color.

Realme came in second place this month with the Realme 5 Pro. Their more affordable smartphones are also on the list including the Realme 5i at rank number 3 and Realme C3 at rank number 7.

Vivo has a single entry this month – the Vivo Y11. It’s a budget smartphone with dual cameras and a 5000mAh battery for ₱5,999.


Samsung Galaxy A71

Samsung’s new pair of smartphones got the fifth and sixth places this month. The Samsung Galaxy A71 is slightly more popular because it’s available in all stores while the Samsung Galaxy A51 is more affordable but exclusively offered by telcos.

The OPPO A5s is still on the list at 9th place! The OPPO Find X2 Pro also made it to rank number 11. It’s the company’s new flagship smartphone that features top of the line features including a 60x zoom.

Hopefully, the situation in the country eases for the month of April. Smartphone brands are already eager to launch new devices and I’m excited to see the top 10 smartphones for April 2020!
