una ko binalak noon bilhin si mp a919, buti nlng d tinangap credit card ko sa installment zero percent, nung nabasa ko tong cloudfone natuwa ako. then ang maganda pa Zero% 3mos tru credit card pa, nice phone, gusto ko ang pagka kapal and bigat nya,, heheh long battery life, heavy user ako sa wifi, 2days ako bago nag charge.

Michael Duazo said...

Hello po, i owned a Cloudfone 430x, ask ko lang, sabi kasi sa specs list 4gb internal storage, pero nung tiningnan ko sa phone mismo,(system settings>storage manager) nakalagay internal storage = 1.32gb tas phone storage 1.76gb, un po ba ang dahilan kaya sya naging 4gb? internal sto.+ phone sto.? thanks po sa magrereply

Michael Duazo said...

nagpalit din ako ng charger dahil nga sobra kung uminit ung phone at charger nung 430x thrill, natatakot ako at baka masira ung phone, mafry, pinalitan ko ng Myphone Charger ko, 5hours onwards ang Charging

I think meron yung Innos D9 nga may JellyBean update.

funzy said...

even i have my myphone cherymobile or cloudfone i dont use their free charger kasi parang bangketa lang. i use branded charger walang problema. kung nasira edi palitan ng magadnang charger. now im using cloudfone thrill and im using samsung charger fast and smooth kesa sa mga ganung charger.

tonton dela fuente said...

hindi lng ang trill ang sumasabog ang charger pati yong branded madami nangyayari nyan minsan talaga may factory deffect ang masama sa mga nagtitinda makapagtinda lng hindi inaayos pag warranty na usapan for me panalo pa din ang trill naka try na ako ng a919 mas mabilis ang trill yong color at camera panalo deferent lng ng a919 screen malaki lng pero mas malinaw ang trill at mabilis pa

Alexis Flores said...

talaga pwde gamitin ung charger ng samsung or sony? compatbiel naman sila dba? bsta same volts and same type of battery pnag kkargahan nla?

Adrian said...

Meron po akong MyPhone A919 at samsung charger yung ginagamit ko po. Wla ko na pala tiningnan kung same volts o same type yung battery.

IceMcwel Coolassice said...

Salamat sa napakalinaw ninyong pagsasalaysay

vividself said...

FYI, China din naman ang assembly line ng iPhone at Samsung Galaxy. I own a Samsung Galaxy S3, and with all the hype ng phone na ito & beating iPhone sa last quarter sales, its disappointing to find out na umiinit ang battery nito while idle dahil sa mga apps na tumatakbo in the background (as in mainit talaga parang takure). Kelangan limit yung apps processes to max of 4.

Check ko online for answers at talaga palang madami owners with the same complain. Acknowledge naman ng Samsung yung problema at gagawan daw ng solution sa next software update release.

Ngayon meron na Cloudfone Thrill undecided na ko to buy A919.

vividself said...

Undecided, looks great on specs, definitely will shame any free phone unit you get from a plan lower than 1k/mo from Globe or Smart.

Still need to get the actual feel of it to decide which one to buy, pero walang talo alin man sa dalawa mapili.

james said...

taiwan ba?kla ko thailand ung astra...... reasearch ko kc na siamphone cia?nakakaalangan kc kpag nalaman mung china ung product na bibilhin muh eh....

Adrian said...

Adrian said...

vividself said...

Adrian said...

Baka nd na po ito maupgrade sa Jelly Bean.

Adrian said...

Ok lng po, Kaya po yung dead trigger at iba png HD games. Laggy lng po yan dahil sa hardware ng A919 nd mkayanin yung ibng HD games. Sakin po mas maganda yung A919 Duo

hyun said...

nalilito lang po ako sabi po kasi nila nag lalag daw po yung audio karamihan sa hd games haysss nag iingat lang po talaga ako bumuli ng unit lalo na at myphone or cherry

Marion Raph Mangila said...

hihintayin ko ung sinasabi ng star mobile na maglalabas sila ng 5.0inch na android phone sana maganda ^_^

KJ Miles said...

According to the screenshots of Cloudfone Thrill 430x Antutu Benchmark in this


It's not MSM8225 but MSM8625 :)

Adrian said...

Thank you po, yan din kasi nkita ko, bago ko ibinalik sa MSM8225 dahil sa innos D9.

Cloudfone :)

Uric said...

CloudFone for the win! Totoo ba na ang owner nito ay si Cloudine Barreto? Just asking.....

Joelan said...

I was doing Smartphone hunting yesterday at SM Megamall. Visited both Kiosk of the phones and had a hands on each units both are applauded but for me the one made a huge impression is the CloudFone Thrill 430x apart from the price comparison of which are couple of hundreds this phone has a massive battery power of which i believed the 1st android unit ever if im not mistaken. I look forward on getting this phone soon

Gabriel Royo Jr. said...

Malaking factor ang battery life sa Android, Cloundfone is the winner for me. :)

JP Garmay said...

cloudfone :)

gRabe. wla pa nman pOng ixue ang myphone, whether unit oR chaRgeR..cLa ang may BEST QUALITY sa Local smartphones..

Luigi Velasco said...

I do have Myphone A919. So far gustong gusto ko ung 8MP camera, Meron din aq Xperia Arc S with 8mp camera. Comparing 2 images, Advantage lang nung Xperia is the Low Lights.

I have Rooted the Phone once and Install different roms tapos nung malowbat dq na ma Power on (So far Its my Fault) Dinala ko xa sa Sony Service Center tapos balikan ko nlang daw Bukas TAKE note WALA AQ binayran kahit aq ung may SALA haha. Aus ang customer care nila.

Battey is not an Issue to me 2000mah is enuf ayoko kc nung makapal na phone. Slim and Wide is more Elegant to me. Me nabibili nmn nag Extra Battery sa Sony

Comparing to Thrill, I used to have an Xperia 4.3 inch din kaso maliit para sakin kya nag Myphone at 5inch.. Huge difference on Screen size. Gustong gusto ko ung Video playback nya sa Youtube at movies.

Regarding sa software baka magka Jellybean ROM na, waiting aq dun sa Kernel na me Governors sa FB page nung A919.

Smooth ung System nya, Playable nmn ung HD games. Mostly Email reading at Browsing ginagawa q kaya 5inch para madali mabasa Dual sim pa. No need to get a Tablet.

All in ALL:
GAMER go for A919
Text/call/todo youtube or P0wn go for Trill. LOL Nakita ko kc sa mga game review Lag khit ung templerun sa thrill eh.

mace said...

thanks for the info Mr. Freddie Ramirez mabuti nalang at di pa kami nakaluwas ng manila to buy that product kase many times akong nagreread ng reviews about that at gustong gusto na nga ng hubby ko bumili ng cloudfone kase nga maganda raw ang specs mabuti nalang talaga at di sya available here sm calamba n sm sta.rosa thanks at nagpost po kayo about your experience very helpful sa mga undecided pang bumili so i must say go go go pa rin ako sa myphone a919

DD said...

and you didnt think about the 3 month warranty for the exploding charger thing before you bought this thing?

DD said...

freddie ramirez why did you buy the cloudfone when you know the exploding charger? by the way 3 months of warranty will eventually deminish thus after this period a charger explosion will not be covered by warranty anymore so i suggest buying a samsung charger to cover your so called "PROBLEM"

Adrian said...

Li-Pol po yung official specs na ibinigay ng MyPhone at Li-Pol din po yung nsa Micromax A110 at i-mobile iQ5.

MikSas said...

Naku, dami na tuloy choices, di na tuloy makadecide LOL!

Aldeen Presbitero said...

bago ka po mamili read mo po muna post ni @freddie ramirez

Luigi Velasco said...

Sumasabog kya ang charger nang Cloudfone. bka maaksidente pa kau o masunugan..

Aldeen Presbitero said...

yes po read mo po yung post ni @freddie ramirez

Mark Anthony C. Mercado said...

pag nakabili na ako nito, hindi ko mismo gagamitin yung charger ng nasa package.. instead, yung branded na lang katulad ng samsung, nokia, blackberry, at iphone charger..

mainam pa nga yung "BRANDED" na chargers, sigurado ka pa na "HINDI SASABOG" kasi accurate ang time at may auto function ang branded..

honestly speaking, owner ako ng CM FLARE at MP A878.. Yung charger nila mismo PINAMIGAY ko na lang...

Kasi FEELING ko sa brand na yun parang tigSESENGKWENTA lang sya na galing sa BANGKETA... BAGAY yun pangkarga sa MP4 MP3 player ng china media gadgets...

Aldeen Presbitero said...

he @Mark Anthony C. Mercado share ko lang from experience one year na po ako user ng mga my|phone and so far hindi pa ako naka-experience ng masama about their chargers minsan nga kahit charger ng ibang model gamit pero my|phone din tatak ok lang wala pang nangyayari katulad nung sa cloudfone

Aldeen Presbitero said...

buti na lang pala nag my|phone padin ako hay nakabili na ako ng myphone a919 naglalast lang ang battery ng 1 day kaya nagdecide ako na magcloudfone 430x tapos on the spot I dropped the idea caused of a bad feeling I was so thankful that I followed my intuition

Luigi Velasco said...

Bumili aq A919, ni root q at pinalaruan ung system tapos na sira q ung Software.. Dinala ko sa Service Center Nila sa SONY. Pinalitan nila agad ung unit. :D haha

Jojo said...

Nagpabili kasi ako ng Myphone a919 at a848i para ipadala dito sa Taiwan. may alternatibong service center kaya dito yan?


Adrian said...

Nd ko po alam, dahil nsa Pilipinas lng yata yung Service center nila.

Ramon Guevara said...

Bakit Li-Pol ang battery ng myphone A919 dito? Sa ibang blog kasi ay Li-ion aling specs kaya ang tama? Mas gusto ko kasi sana ay Li-Pol kasi sa experience ko kahit pareho ang mAh ay mas matagal mag lowbat ang Li-pol kaysa Li-ion. Sana Li-pol talaga ang battery ng MP A919 kasi bibili na ako bukas.
