MyPhone may be a local company, but all their phones are just re-branded and customized China made phones that they order from cell phone manufacturers like ZTE, Huawei or other smaller companies.

I actually bought a myphone a898 phone last november 2012 and up to now, it's working great. I'm currently using it as my main phone and pda at the office. I don't regret buying it because it serves me well with a good camera and a fast enough processor for office use and occasional hd gaming. I've rooted it and personalized it a bit and it works even better. Battery lasts a day with how I use it and watching 720p movies is a breeze. I might still hold off from upgrading since this phone is durable and reliable. My only minor regret was that I biught the phone when it was still being offered at a higher price. :)
