Smartphones get even more affordable

The evolution of smartphones remains unstoppable. As the war of the tech brands lives on, consumers take further advantage of the expanding options available in the ever-growing market for modern devices.

About a decade after the introduction of the modern smartphone, there are now entry-level devices that amazingly offer major features, conveniences, and reliability required by the end-users. Indeed, there is an interesting buyers’ market.

Torque Mobile believes there is now no excuse to own a smartphone as it launches its EGO series Boost Edition, a new line-up that democratizes the full-pledged smartphone.

As one of the leading manufacturers of Android-based devices in the Philippines, the brand takes on the commitment to offer noteworthy smartphones and tablets at the most reasonable tag prices, empowering more budget-conscious consumers and bolstering their purchase power.

“Much like the human ego, we view the now-ubiquitous smartphone as something that is here to stay,” said Torque Mobile CEO Chris Uyco. “Owning a smartphone is now easier than it has ever been.”
