Myphone A888 Duo: Specs, Price and Quality Issues

Few days ago, I've posted several articles regarding Cherry Mobile Phones such as the Flare, Titan, Skyfire, Omega, Flame and Blaze. I have discussed about the specs, prices and overviews of this different Cherry Mobile smartphone. I have also given much emphasis on Cherry Mobile quality issues because as we all know, Cherry Mobile is a cheap China brand phone. As the saying goes "You've got what you paid for".

Now, Myphone brand will be my next topic.  Myphone was the first China brand mobile phone seller in the Philippines. As far as I could remember, this brand even had a commercial in television. I am not really that familiar with Myphone brand so I have to rely to some reliable information shared in the web and from friends who use Myphone brand cellphone.

Myphone A888 was announced officially by Myphone official Facebook page tagged as "Sleek and Superb". 

Here's the Specs of Myphone A818 posted on their website.

512MB RAM

So what do most tech bloggers have to say about this smartphone? Based on my readings, some tech bloggers are actually hesitant considering this phone. For one reason, this Myphone A888 Duo priced Php 7,499- this is actually very expensive considering that competitor Cherry Mobile has just released competitive smartphone at lower prices.

If there's one thing that this Myphone A888 Duo has advantage over its competitor, then it would be the Quality. In my scanning of webpages, forums and even blog article, I have not found any quality issues, errors, and problems real users had encountered. Yes, Myphone has advantage over Cherry Mobile in terms of Quality.

  13. after researching and reading every info about Myphone A888 duo comparing with the Cherry mobile blaze i prefer Myphone because of the QUALITY as per bloggers. i just bought this 3 days ago May4th and so far my comments in terms of:

    the promo dates last March30 and April30 in sm naga had NO SALE or any promo in store and if ask for the product they said they're out of stock on that specific dates. i had no choice still i chose the black model of a888 duo for the same introductory price of P7455 since december 2012 and since no promo was given twice on march and april of 2013 i could not wait;

    on the next day, just after the purchase i had an issue after the INITIAL CHARGING of the phone, i was unable to open the phone and the screen was like a static gray tv i did not remove the battery for them to see, so i had it exchanged at the mall giving me the white version and informing me that i CAN ONLY EXCHANGE ONCE, that's for the 1year warranty for parts and services? what's my assurance it won't happen again?

    the 8 mpx camera is definitely clear with nice resolution but haven't tried it outside at night;

    the info of 4GB internal memory to my dismay was not found when i checked on the phone settings only showing 1gb internal memory, so what happened to the rest of it?

    pretty much the phone is moving fast from the screen, to the wifi connection, to the camera, there was no problem about it after the exchange, im just a little disappointed...

    1. i doubt you anonymous, kung maka cherry ka sisisraan mo talaga ang ibang brand kasi may mga online bloggers at bayarang bloggers si cherry para siraan ang ibang brand like myphone, starmobile at torque. kaya pagdating sa sa mga bloggers at mga comments ingat kayo sa nababasa niyo kasi ang consumer pa rin ang talo sa huli. Good job sa black propaganda ng cherry lalabas at lalabas din ang baho niyo, yulad dati na TV Patrol kayo dahil sa sirain ang product niyo, ngayon naman mauulit at mauulit yan baka si tulfo naman ang bumanat sa inyo, karma karma lang yan.

    2. Uhm ma'am, the 4gb internal memory is allocated on the settings prior to the user settings. Thus the remaining 1gb is for your consumption the rest is used by your phone to function properly. if you want you can expand it to 32gb. Btw, dont post anything stupid in the forum. It's very obvious that you don't know much about stuff.
      Sincerely,
      Your dream guy.

  19. about your storage concerning about 4gig.... yes... it only shows 1.4gig because of the Android OS and other apps partitioned to the other part of it... and no... u cant transfer your apps to SD... u have to root ur device first before u can transfer your apps... but that will void your warranty and a risk of having your phone rendered useless.... or a BRICK phone....
