The MyPhone A878 Duo and the MyPhone A898 Duo, both are among the budget-friendly dual-SIM Android smartphones on the market today that features a 1GHz dual-core processor. The MyPhone A898 Duo which is set to be launched before the end of October, is one of the most talked smartphone online because of its specs (The first ever Android smartphone from MyPhone that comes with 3G connectivity). While the MyPhone A878 Duo which was officially unveiled at MyPhone's "Fans Day Madness" event last month, is MyPhone's most powerful Android smartphone to date. With that a lot of people are asking what is the difference between the two? So, let’s look at their specs side-by-side after the jump.

If you can see both the MyPhone A878 Duo and the MyPhone A898 Duo have the same looks (actually they are twins and at first glance you can't distinguish which phone is the A878 or A898. The only way to distinguish them is the VGA front facing camera of the A898, A878 by the way didn't have a VGA front camera) and specs (Both have the same 1GHz dual-core processor and PowerVR SGX531 GPU that can play Angry Birds, Bad Piggies, Temple Run and is compatible with Adobe Flash), but the MyPhone A898 Duo edges the MyPhone A878 Duo because of its VGA front-facing camera and support for 3G/ HSPA connectivity! While the MyPhone A878 Duo only edges the A898 Duo with its price (The A878 Duo is Php500 cheaper than the A898 Duo).

Now, which phone wins the fight?
