The War Machine is slightly cheaper than the Iceberg Mini and it has a larger internal storage plus it is expandable via micro SD. Other specifications are pretty much the same.

Software wise, the Iceberg has anti-theft application called TARA plus other features like Clever Motion, Voice Commands, Voice Controls and more. The W8s may not have a software enhancement but its package includes an additional 2000mAh battery.

    THL W8 all the way! You can make with third-party software that you can install on that very generous 32GB internal and whatever size microSD you put in it.

  2. Maganda lang Spec ni THL pero test niyo mga units nila, lag@ specially sa Camera lalo na sa front cam. Maganda sana kaso failed! Try niyo muna itest bago kayo bumili, wag kayo pabubulag sa specs lang dapat pati sa build and quality ng phone tingnan niyo rin.
