While we were all staying at home in April 2020, many Pinoy Techno Guide readers expressed their intention to purchase a new smartphone when the ECQ is lifted.
Top 10 Smartphones in the Philippines (April 2020)
|1||Huawei nova 7i||35,466|
|3||Realme 5 Pro||19,795|
|6||Samsung Galaxy A51||12,073|
|8||OPPO A5 2020||11,382|
The Huawei nova 7i retained the top spot from March 2020 but slightly lesser page views in April 2020. It’s an enticing smartphone with its 48MP quad cameras, Kirin 810 chipset, 8GB RAM, and 40W fast charging since its price is ₱13,990 only.
Realme is very popular this month probably as a direct result of its social media strategies of engaging with its fanbase. Four smartphones from the brand are in the top 10 list with the Realme 5i on second place.
The Vivo Y11 dipped one spot from last month but it’s still a popular budget smartphone. It’s a no-frills device with a 6.35-inch display, Snapdragon 439 chipset, 13M dual cameras, and 5000mAh battery.
Samsung only has a single smartphone in the rankings this month – the Samsung Galaxy A51. It’s available through postpaid plans of Globe and Smart.
This month’s rankings won’t be complete if we won’t talk about the recently launched iPhone SE 2020 from Apple.
I expected it to rank high since it’s essentially an “affordable” iPhone. However, the ₱26,490 starting price of the device might still be too much for the budget-conscious Filipino.
Nevertheless, the Apple iPhone SE (2020) managed to record 6,483 pageviews and got 14th place.
