Bigger doesn’t always mean pricier. This is what the new Arc Mobile Memo will try to prove as Arc Mobile PH is already prepping up for its official market release in the coming weeks. This new local phablet will not only WOW us in size and specs but also for its very cheap and pocket-friendly price tag.
In my recent posts, I did a hands on / first impressions of the gigantic Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 which is among the biggest phablets introduced in the market to date. It is a very good phablet choice however one of its set backs is its premium price that’ll cost you for around Php 24K. If you are on a tight budget but still longing to own the big-screen Android phone, why not consider the Arc Mobile Memo which still gives to great specs at a much lower price tag.
