Few days ago, I was fortunate to have a chance to check out the current flagship of Prestigio in the Philippines, the Multiphone 5508. It's a very nice looking smartphone with top notch build quality and decent specs as an everyday aspirational executive phone without shelling out too much cash.

Looking at the specs of this phone, it's not the most powerful one for the price and personally, I would have love it better if this has 2 GB of RAM for better multitasking. Fortunately, that's only a minor downside or not even a downside if you're just a casual or lifestyle user. It's octa core processor made the general performance smooth, both the rear and front camera is decent and the style / build quality of this device is a step above most phones today.
Pro's - Build quality, style, both rear and front cameras,
Con's - Storage not expandable, some may need more RAM
As of the moment...
As an everyday executive phone, the Prestigio Multiphone 5508 is one of the great choices in the country today. It also has decent specs that can get most of the job done combined with the great look that most style conscious people will love. As I pointed out earlier, the build quality of this handset is world class and probably better than 50% of the flagships out there. This phone also has that nice selfie flash feature that most people who likes taking photos in the dark or club will love.
