As you can see in the above specs, they are much the same. There is a screen size difference but the resolution remains the same. There is also a small battery capacity gap as well as the camera resolution. However the BIG difference is the PRICE wherein the Thunder 2.0 is Php1600 more expensive.

My point here is that the local smartphone industry is accelerating, wherein the price is getting cheaper but you are getting almost the same specification of a gadget/device from just the past 3 months. This basically means that local smartphone is depreciating fast compared to "branded" ones.

Is it good to consumers and distributors/retailers alike? Your opinion matters most, so please share them in the comment section below.
