    Iphone is made of ceramic and glass.. Pretty to look at and easy to use but if you have kids nevermind. Be prepared to pay 200-300 aud for repairs specially if said kid throws it on the pavement.

    Alot of my nurse colleagues have iphone but the screen are cracked or the sides are chipped cause they sometimes sit on it or drop it while out and above (jogging/ beach etc) and quite expensive to have it repaired.

    Im a samsung girl.. Having been through the galaxy which i gave to my cousin after my hubby got me the s2 and he got himself the note. No accident so far has chipped or broken it.

    Function wise it is very good also. But as a parent, i need something sturdy and my samsungs havent failed me;)

    My sister had an iphone and it fell and broke. Switched to an s3 and no complaints so far.

    I dont care sa drop test sa youtube... Kasi we are not sure of bias yun or not. But based lng own experience.

    Pero i have an ipad mini.. Im not an apple hater. I really believe apple made a pretty and easy to use product. Prro even my mini looks very fragile. Talaga d pwdi mahilog sa cemento.

    Guys if you really think about it 40k pesos is nothing.

    Back in 2005 era, my then bf now hubby was an o2 xda user... The really old versions! It was around that price range and it cant even do half the things the current phones can do.

    Eh before that 1999-2000 ish era, yung nokia 88 series .remember how much those phones were?? 20- 30k pesos and what were those phones capable of?

    I think what either iphone and samsung et al is pricing their phones is quite reasonable considering how far technology has come:)

    Naisip ko tuloy iphone4 ko mag-2 years old na... Carries 10 textbooks, hundreds of journals, vax sked, brisbane bus/train sked, brisbane weather and map, daily notes, powerpoint, emails, banking. Ease of use, wala ako masabi.

    Kulang na lang fridge at microwave eh. :D

    Mahal yun nung binili ko, sa totoo lang. Nagsisi pa ako dati kasi $700 for a phone is unholy. Pero ngayon, naging indispensable na sa work, sobrang sulit. Bawing-bawing na.

    That is so true. I bought iPhone 4 the day it became available sa ATT. I still love the phone up to now. I may replace this when iPhone 6 comes out. Walang sinabi talaga yung Android based sa experience ko. gamit ko yung S3 for about a month and puro lag, hang, freezes, crashes. Sa pagscroll pa lang ng screen may lag na. hehehe!

    If naka lock yung S4 mo, di gagana yan... If otherwise, it will not be a problem.
