MARK YOUR CALENDARS guys! Cherry Mobile is set to celebrate its 3rd Anniversary this August 15 and has prepared a very tempting offer for all of us. The company’s flagship smartphone, the W900 Dragon Phone, from its original/regular price of Php14,999, will only cost Php5,999 on their upcoming one-day Anniversary sale. Yes, you’ll get to save Php9,000!

Since the Dragon Phone’s sale price is pretty much the same with the regular price of the Galaxy Y (Young), I’ve thought of coming up a head-to-head comparison between the two.

Obviously, specs-wise, the Dragon Phone wins against the Galaxy Y. This is because the former is originally in the mid-range category while the latter is in entry-level. So basically, after the sale of the Dragon Phone, there’s absolutely no sense to compare these two.

The sale happens in one day (Aug. 15) only and will be available all Cherry Mobile concept stores and kiosks nationwide. This is undoubtedly one of the biggest and most beneficial promo of this year (here in the Philippines). If you haven’t owned an Android phone yet (or planning to upgrade from an entry-level smartphone like the Galaxy Y or Pocket), you should definitely consider this phone. I tell you, at just Php5,999, you won’t regret it! You get much more than what you paid for.
