Starmobile recently released the Starmobile Up. The 5 inch smartphone comes with a scratch resistant screen, a 1.3Ghz quad core MediaTek CPU and 1GB of RAM. Priced at only P4,990, you will also get a  free OTG cable and Flip Case.

As always, I personally think having only 4GB of internal storage is a hindrance (even though you can always transfer apps to your SD Card). On the flip side, it has a really handy feature where in you can Double Tap to Wake/Sleep the device. And best of all, it comes with Android KitKat 4.4 out of the box. This, I think, is the best reason to consider if you are on the market for a 5 inch phone under P5k. KitKat brings with it numerous performance updates, as well as a lower memory footprint.
