my|phone A858 Duo Availability and Price

The my|phone A858 Duo is available at my|phone kiosks and online stores and is currently selling for P4,999. There's also a trade-in promo that takes P500 off to the SRP making it P4,499.

Editor's comment on the my|phone A858 Duo

The good thing here is at P4,999, you'll get a 1GHz Mediatek MT6515 smartphone with 400MB RAM. That's not bad at all. First, you'll enjoy a smoother experience, and the increased computing power allows for more games to be played. Everyone who owns a low-end Android 2.3.x Gingerbread knows first hand that it lags and it can't run Temple Run. But with this, your games won't lag and you'll be able to play process-intensive games.

Second, a 3.95in capacitive display. I don't know about you but I've yet to find an almost 4-incher that seells for P4,999. The closest I can think is Alcatel's One Touch Inspire: It's a 4" Android but has only 800MHz and sells for P8,000+. A bigger display means more wiggle room for fingers and a bigger viewing area. Too bad the resolution is 320x480. That's like resizing a 25x25 .jpeg to 150x150. I do hope the A858 Duo's display area isn't as grainy as I think it would be. We're still wondering why my|phone didn't make it a flat 4" though.

Lastly, the my|phone A858 Duo is dual-SIM. Two networks at once. Imagine the Cherry Mobile W900, but on two networks at once. Wow. That and a 1600mAh battery (the longest battery life from a local brand I've held still belongs to the DTC GT3 Astroid at only 1450mAh).

The downsides though are also considerable. Read the list below:
  • Low quality 3.2MP camera
  • No flash
  • Small 128MB internal memory, (127MB usable)
  • Still on Gingerbread
Then again, you don't get to a very low price point without sacrificing other features. It would've been nice if my|phone put together a real market competitor though.

I'm expecting other local players to follow suit. After all, maintaining high pricing on less powerful phones are a no brainer. What do you guys think? Hit the comments below.

'Till my next installment.

  3. i just bought mine and its super nice and it can play temple run

  4. I just bought mine, yes its a good catch but the worst downside that I can find is its small internal storage. I have to clear all the data of all the apps and I can't download a lot of games because of it too. But, what can we expect from 4,499? So thumbs up for this phone! :)

  5. Best high-end Android phone of myphone and the cheapest for its kind! I bought it and its pretty cool it big screen and no lag and very responsive touchscreen.The only downside is the memory but we can save some space by moving the downloaded games or apps to the SD card.
