MyPhone A848g vs A848i DUO Price and Specs Comparison

MyPhone A848i DUO (left) is powered by dual-core MT6577 processor, running on Android ICS and 512 MB RAM. A848g DUO (right) is probably an upgraded A848i, also dual-core powered, runs on Android Jelly Bean and sports a dual camera.

A848i DUO is the second cheapest dual-core Android phone of MyPhone next to A818g DUO (P3,999). Recently, A848g DUO availability was announced on MyPhone Facebook and its FREE with SUN Plan 350.

What's the difference between A848g and A848i DUO? One main difference is OS upgrade from Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) to Jelly Bean (JB). Jelly Bean is an improved ICS User Interface - UI is smoother, faster and more responsive.  How about the hardware? I think it’s the same with A848i DUO.

Cherry Mobile FLARE and StarMobile ASTRA is already on the way for JB upgrade very soon, and I hope MyPhone A848i DUO users will also have an update to Jelly Bean to have better experience with latest Android JB operating system.

Ano pong pangit sa phone? Like mabilis malobat and the like? Balak ko po kasing bumili :)

Majority of Android phones are designed with battery for 1 day use like MyPhone A848i DUO.

If you want a high capacity battery, you can try StarMobile ENERGY (2200 mAh), Huawei Ascend Y210D (1700 mAh), O+ 8.36 (2000 mAh), Cloudfone Thrill 430X (4160 mAh), Lenovo P770 (3500 mAh) and DTC GT7 MAX (2500 mAh)

Hi, i have a myphone a848g, pansin ko lang ung camera has no autofocus, even i touch the screen dapat dba my little box nalumalabas para magfocus? Para mareturn ko xa if not normal to. Thank you

GbSb said...

Sa box ng unit po ba may autofocus na nakalagay?

Try mo din po tingnan if ng aautofocus kahit wala ung box sa camera, baka kasi autofocus siya peru wala lang box na nag-aappear

Also, tingnan mo din ang ibang unit sa store. Wala kasi sa specs niya dito at sa MyPhone Online store -->

Walang nakaindicate sa box na my autofocus xa, nagdownload din aq ng camera 360 then sabi autofocus is not supported of this device, nakua ko kasi to sa sun plan 350,wala akong makita sa retail store. Weird lng na JB na xa tapos walang autofocus sayang ang 5MP, cguro nga i should ask sun for another unit to test, if no auto focus ito medyo nakakalungkot.. salamat sa napaka bilis na reply ^_^

GbSb said...

Baka di talaga autofocus yan kasi wala sa box specs, yung MP A848i DUO kasi may nakalagay sa box specs at autofocus siya.

I'll try sa ibang MyPhone store or Kiosk and I'll let you know.

Be careful guys an girls, may mga ilang seller myphone store mismo sasabihin ips panel pero hindi naman pala, at confirmed walang autofocus, kaya yun may plano bumili pagtyagaan nyo na na makahanap ng 848i , better than 848g. Kakalungkot lng, i bought as a gift for my love one dahil nadukot yun 848i nya, i thought 848g is better dahil updated, hindi pala. For a reason, cost cutting ang myphone dahil originally they launched 848i at 6k a year ago, unlike 848g stayed at 4k. Hopefully this world change for better at maging honest ang mga seller.

Thanks for feedback, to my blog readers, fyi and please check and confirm the specs before buying.

got one yesterday. so far malinaw naman ang camera kahit di autofocus. average lang ang speed ng 3G and wifi. yung internal mem nya di ko lang sure pero parang 2gb lang and not 4gb. Yes, mabilis yung battery nya, nka full charge ako yesterday and now 30% plus na lang. Naenrol ko na din sa TARA kaya lang di ko sha matest at maprove na useful unless manakaw talaga tong unit. Pinuno nila ng useless apps for me like videoke, myphone kiyeme, kaya halos mapuno na yung internal mem. di ko pa tinanggal yung mga plastic kasi under observation ko pa sha in case something went wrong.

GbSb said...

Thanks Denise for feedback. Nagamit na kasi sa OS at Apps yung ibang internal memory kaya yung natira ay para sa user na lang. How much niyo po nabili ang MP A848g?

i just purchased 1 lastnyt at 2,900.00 as i test it madami akong questions.. like hindi pla nya automatic na binabasa ang mga old messages from sim.. and sabi internal mem is 4ghz pero bakit less than 2 ghz lng yta? etc. can i return this kaya? and replace it for another model? khit pa mag-add na lng ako ng payment.. ):

GbSb said...

Nagamit na kasi sa OS at Apps yung ibang internal memory kaya yung natira ay para sa user na lang. kayo po bahala if gusto niyo po i-exchange. Para sa P2,900 na price, sulit na sulit na po yan.

bakit ang baba ng Antutu score? Cherry mobile's amber, life and gem can easily reach the 10k almost 11k mark.... at 2999php..

GbSb said...

Old version pa po yan ng AnTuTu, version 3, try ko po yung new version and I'll post the result here.

GbSb said...

Pwede po malaman ang battery in mAh? meanwhile please set the screen brightness sa medium or lowest, turn off WiFi, 3G and Bluetooth unless ginagamit mo po.

Thanks for feedback and impression about MP A848g, enjoy your phone.

adrian smith said...

So far ok naman A848g Duo. I have this for more than 6 mos. I bought this phone for 2,999 and it ok for me though wala syan autofocus. Clear naman camera nya eh, and d ibig sabihin kahit 2 pt lang touch nya, ok nman nakaka pag text. Im also a rom developer so alam ko ang lamang ni 848i dito are only touch points and autofocus.

We have lots of rom na e port ko. Search nyo lang sa facebook but make sure PM nyo ako pra ma add ko kayo. (KAsi medyo strict kami, ayaw namin may makapasok na iba)

Thanks :)
Jese :P
