MyPhone A848 Duo: Specs, Price, Features and Availability in the Philippines


MyPhone recently announced the availability of their newest smartphone called the MyPhone A848 Duo! For only Php4,590 (promo price), the MyPhone A848 Duo boasts a 4.0-inch IPS capacitive display, a dual-SIM, dual-standby capability, an 5MP camera with LED flash, a VGA front camera, 1GHz single-core MediaTek processor, 1,600mAh battery and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as its OS. More about the MyPhone A848 Duo specs and features after the jump.

"If a 3.5-inch phone is just too small, and 5 inch is just too big, then the MyPhone A848 might be the right size of phone for you. This 4-inch Android phone is packed with features that an average Android user needs. Its 1 Ghz processor can keep up with your simple multi-tasking needs. The 5MP camera with LED flash can also come in handy anytime you need it. Its standard 3.5mm audio jack with mp3 player compatibility is perfect for music listening on-the-go. Also enjoy high-quality photo and video viewing with its wide LCD. And of course, A848 is loaded with MyPhone’s Pinoy Apps with pure-Filipino contents." - MyPhone

What is the difference between the MyPhone A848 Duo and the MyPhone A848i Duo?
Both phones have the same specs and looks (actually you cannot distinguish which phone is the A848 or A848i), but the MyPhone A848i Duo comes with 1GHz dual-core MediaTek MT6577 processor and 3G connectivity support.

  2. Hello guys,

    Pa help naman with my problem. Kasi hindi ko ma enable yung GPRS sa phone ko. I have Globe and Smart SIM na try ko na pareho pero lagi "Connection Failed" yung nakikita ko sa browser ko. Sa globe sinubukan ko yung mag seset ka ng phone model then send. Tapos sinasabi "Invalid keyword". Nauubos n load ko hindi ko pa mapagana ung GPRS. Nag try na din ako mag set manually.

  3. Ano po ba ang mas maganda Myphone A818 o Myphone A848 ???

    ReplyDelete
  6. Same po yan sa computer, mas mabilis po ung dual-core dahil dalawa po yung processor nito compare sa single-core.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I owned this myphone model less than a month now, everything's working fine. You get more for a very affordable price on the other hand since its single core and we have the lowest dsl plan and I bought a wifi modem, it tends to hang every single time I try to watch videos, and I end up power cycling the phone for at least 3-4 times and just stop watching the video at all because of frustration, I remove all the unnecessary files stored in my sd card thinking that it may help the slow pace of my phone but it doesnt help it at all.

    ReplyDelete
  8. ah ganun. ano po pagkakaiba ng fixed focus sa auto focus?

    ReplyDelete
  9. diba may gsensor din sya kuya adrian?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  65. im using this phone and i love it :) sulit ang money nyo!

    ReplyDelete
  66. It does not support 3G, but that doesn't mean na hindi ka pwede mag-internet sa phone mo using your sim card. Just pull down the notification bar then select "Data Connection", after that, a pop up will be displayed and all you have to do is select the sim card that you want to use to be able to connect to the internet. Hindi nga lang sya mabilis, but still, you're able to post pictures on instagram or update your facebook and twitter account.

    ReplyDelete
  67. great, i haven't gone to their specs, and tried it

    ReplyDelete
  68. Pwd po, GPRS/EDGE lng ung gagana dahil wala ito 3G connectivity.

    ReplyDelete
  69. hindi ba magagawan ng paraan para maactivate ang mobile internet?

    ReplyDelete
  75. tuwing mag iinstal po ako ng games at ng apps, dalawa lang po ang default storage, ang internal at ang phone storage, meron ga pong paraan para gawing default instalation point ang aking sd card imbes sa phone storage? kasi di po kasya mga hd games eh, thanks

    ReplyDelete
  76. You need to root your phone...

    all android powered devices doesn't install files on SD card because google(android) said that SD card cannot run games smoothly and perfectly when the games is in the SD card... specially hd games

    Advantage of rooting:: install apps to SD.. long battery life.. speed up the unit... making back up.... bug free...... install new rom.... new appearance, memory swap (your internal can change to external (vice versa) ... and you can gain full control of the unit.. that's why it is called "ROOT"

    Disadvantage of rooting: Your phone/device might get bricked... or useless.... (like carrying a brick in your pocket) and instead of speeding up the unit, it can also slowing the unit and getting hang

    and your phone/device warranty will be lost

    (root at your own risk) ^_^ (take it to the experts)

    rooting is for android powered devices

    jailbreak is for the ios

    ReplyDelete
  77. nabili ko na sya hahhaha

    ReplyDelete
  78. Sa Google Play po o dito http://www.apkmania.co/. Sa akin po no need na po yung anti-virus dahil kumakain lng po ito ng resources sa phone mu.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  85. Yup, mka net ka din po at mabagal lng yung loading time dahil GPRS/EDGE yung connection.

    ReplyDelete
  86. quick question, sa A848 duo, if nag unli surf ka sa globe, would you still be able to access the net on your phone? or that typically eliminates the purpose since A848 duo doesnt support 3G?

    ReplyDelete
