One of the things we were curious about just got answered. Well, at least partially.
(Update, August 12: A more affordable Y11? Why not? Read Cheaper Vivo Y11 coming to the Philippines Aug 14.)
Local retailer MemoXpress has shared the top 10 bestselling phones from March 16 to May 31. Or a day before the Philippine government imposed enhanced community quarantine in Luzon till the day before it eased lockdown measures.
According to MemoXpress, the Vivo Y11 was its “most-loved phone this ECQ.” Now priced at P6,499 (around $130), the Y11 has consistently been the brand’s most popular handset since its launch in 2019. It features a 5,000mAh battery, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 mated to 3G of RAM and 32GB of storage, a 13-megapixel dual camera, and an 8-megapixel selfie shooter.

Hot on the heels of the Vivo Y11 was the OPPO A5s, followed by the only basic phone of the 10 models, the Nokia 105 2019. Also part in the ranking were the Huawei Y6 Pro, Realme C3, Huawei Y7, Samsung Galaxy A10s, and Samsung Galaxy A71.
The inclusion of the Galaxy A71 is impressive, considering it’s the only non-budget unit there. While the others cost under P10,000 (under $201), the Samsung device is priced at P22,990 ($461). The next most expensive smartphone in the top 10 is the Vivo Y15. We’re talking about a P14,991 ($300) price difference here.
Obviously, we would have loved to get data from the other stores as well to get a more accurate picture, but at least MemoXpress is one of the biggest retailers in the Philippines.
