Are you prepared that this two Android phones are coming? Actually they are three and even more. The battle of dual-core processors Android phones are already heating up and the battle of better display/screen and camera is just starting.

Latest MyPhone A888 DUO, StarMobile CRYSTAL, Cherry Mobile FLAME (P6,299), Cloudfone Thrill 430x (P7,777) and upcoming Torque DROIDZ Blast (P6,990, not official price) have two things in common, they are all running on dual-core processor in qHD (quarter HD) 560x960 screen resolution.

I'll go for crystal, advantage na yung rebranded siya kasi may mga user na sa ibang bansa, at may rooting procedures na malamang. unlike sa a888 na hindi rebranded. kaya mahirap maghanap ng rooting procedure yan..

Myphone is a rebrand micromax and somewhere else also.. Check gsmarena look for the micromax. Research ^_^

crystal has a 2.0 front cam while A888 has a 100 more MAH on their battery.

The Starmobile Crystal is already rooted out of the box. :)

One of tipidcp member say it's not after he root his phone.

who said A888 cant be rooted is not only misinformed but is way off stupid... Androids can be rooted given the fact that cyanogen mods as long as it fits the device processor id.

to be able to tell others that this device cant be rooted without first researching shows how dumb you can be!!!

Sabi nila slow daw shutter ng crystal? pag mag take mg shots edi mga ilang seconds pa yun. paki confirmed nga po. kung maganda nga camers tapos slow naman shutter then useless.

what about my phone a888? kasi nakita ko na sya ginagamit ng classmate ko and maganda talaga sya kaso malaki parang hindi kasya sa typical na bulsa. at ang nagpapangit sa kanya yung mapa ng pilipinas sa likod.

ang crystal tingin ko pocket friendly sya.

sana maglabas ng ibang color ang crystal. kasi yung cherry mobile flare ibat ibang colors na sya.

di kasi advisable n bumili ng iphones dito sa pinas mainit sa mata ng magnanakaw. kaya sa mall or bahay mo lang sya madadala.

SGX531 din nmn ung a888 -___-

never think of that map in myphone is ugly.. yun ang nagpapakita na tayo ay proud pinoy!! hahaha. And what you can expect from it?? Na-amaze ako kasi Filipinos like us are the ones who redesign the Android OS that will look like a Philippine Version of Smarphone kaya san ka pa :). From what i've researched, halos wala ka makikitang issues about Myphone. 512mb lang ang RAM but still it's enough to run a smartphone and they are utilizing the memory space para kahit 512mb un eh may allotted space pa for your apps.

I agree with you. My sis is a proud owner of MyPhone A848i DUO - MyPhone's cheapest dual-core powered Android phone so far.

Yung a919 po rebrand pu yun ng imobile iq5.. mahal po ang micromax. Kaya di po pwedeng maging rebrand ng myphone kase malulugi po kung mura ang benta nila dito.

threepmtwo Cousins said...

A888 po binili ko nung isang araw.. kahit pu bsi camera ng crystal.. nung kinompare ko mas maganda kulay ng a888 pag nagcapture

John Henry Refran said...

A888 duo p rin ako...kc mas gusto ko sya...but in choosing local brands choose only myphone or starmobile don't choose other brand like cheery mobile because it is not reliable or mpapag katiwalaan pag dating s quality...ang filipino kc hindi lng puro s price nagbabase..abah eh...! my halong arte rin nmn kmi...guzto nmin sulit n at mura pa

Cguro hnd ka pilipino kc napapangitan ka sa mapa naming mga pilipino. Kung ayaw mo ng myphone wag kana mag salita pa kc nakakasama pa.
