Meron akong Astra, then yung friend ko may Titan so we tried na icompare yung mga features ang e2 yung mga napansin namin.

1. Sa Titan, meron xang feature na pwede ka manood ng video(using stock video player) at the same time makakapag FB ka, Chat etc or some games na hindi gaanong malaki ang gngmit na memory/cpu. Prang may na pin to top na video player na around 1.5inch yung size.

2. Pag gabi, hindi pwedeng pang malayuan si Astra, pero si Titan pwedeng pwede dahil malakas yung flash niya. Siguro si Astra mga 20-30 inch maiilawan ka pa ng flash, pero si Titan mga x5 or x10 yung layo na pwede at night. Yung front camera ni Titan napansin ko rin na mas maliwanag kesa sa Astra(tested at night with usual white bulb light on), Nadisappoint lng ako sa Astra dhil kahit nkabukas na ilaw namin eh hindi parin maliwanag yung front camera. Though Mgnda sa astra pag umaga, mas mgnda yung kuha dhil sa 8MP. Pero kung night time ka magpipicture siguro kakailangnin mo pa ng flash light xD

3. Hindi rin naman msyadong nagkakalayo yung IPS(astra) at non IPS capacitive(titan) pag hawak mo na yung both phones. May options din sa Titan na gawing mas intense yung color or gawing less intense. Halos parehas lng din yung screen, specially both 5 points naman sila.
Tama lang yung laki ni Titan, nung una parang napangitan ako kya Astra nlng binili ko, pero iba tlga yung feature set ng Titan, prang completo tlga. Sa Astra prang kulang kulang pa. Sa Titan, mdli lng mag upgrade dhil may option sila to update over the air. Sa Astra, pupunta ka p ng Service center na pagkalayo layo. Kung alam ko lang na ganun, hindi ko bibilhin si Astra. Kaso huli ko na nalaman xD

4. Battery, mgnda tlga battery ng titan. Kahit naka power bank na ko, talo parin xD xempre. Maliit nga si Astra, pero baliwala rin yung liit niya kung need mo pa magdala ng power bank everytime. Samantalang si Titan halos 12hours yung tinatagal(without battery saver stuffs etc) and above moderate use(games for like 5hours, the rest stand by). Si astra, 5 hours ka mag games low bat kana xD labas mo na power bank mo xD Si titan meron ka pang more than 50% na matitira(tested on Elgard. Pero xempre depende rin sa games na gngwa mo.
Partida, yung Astra ko naka Set CPU(gamit ko na battery saver).


5. Wifi receiver. e1 ko kung may topak lang Astra ko oh ganito talaga, pero yung Wifi ng Astra ko prang mahina at medyo nagdidisconnect minsan. Samantalang yung Titan smooth yung wifi niya. Tested at same room.

Overall, kung mamimili kayo sa dalawa .. I'd suggest choose Titan, unless gusto mo mas maliit ng konti at okay lng sayo yung mga disadvantage na sinabi ko.
Happy parin ako kay Astra(wala naman akong choice nabili ko na eh haha), pero kung maibabalik ko yung oras... 100% Titan nalang bibilhin ko. Dun sa mga bibili palang, I'd suggest itest niyo muna yung Astra, then Test niyo rin yung TItan para sure na hindi niyo i regret yung pagbili niyo :) Wag na kayo manood ng vids , mas mgnda maexperience niyo mismo :)

Sana nakatulong ako sa pag decide niyo :) Paki Vote Up nalang para makatulong rin sa iba. Thanks for reading!

P.S. Sana magupdate pa yung astra, at dumami pa features(add over the air update). Lalo na sa battery(para hindi naman masayang pagpili ko sa Astra kesa titan).
