I’d like to thank good friend, Richie de Quina of MyPhone for this nifty and cool little gadget – the MyPhone A818 Duo.
I’ve wanted to review this baby for quite sometime now. Why, you ask? Well, for one, this particular MyPhone model already runs on Android. Secondly, apart from it being a dual-sim smartphone, the A818 Duo is insanely affordable. Talk about empowering the masses!
With all the brand choices that one could scour through in the market nowadays, it is quite refreshing and very comforting to find a manufacturer that actually prides itself of being truly “Pinoy”.
Okay, you’re probably asking yourself, “Pinoy? But aren’t these phones made in China?”. Indeed, these phones are made by MyPhone’s partner factory located in China… but everything else about their products are truly Pinoy – the R&D (Research and Development), content, and even the design of each of their models are based on inputs by MyPhone’s Filipino team. And because of that, MyPhone qualifies as a brand (unlike other companies that merely trade).
If there’s one thing I do know about the folks over at MyPhone, it’s that these guys really work their butt off finding ways to improve their products and exceed expectations of what most stereotype people perceive “Pinoy quality” should be.
