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. While the MyPhone A848 Duo doesn't have 3G connectivity and comes with 1GHz single-core MT6575 processor.

Pa help po same lng po problem ko kay rochelle canale... may makakatulong po ba samin?

Rochelle Canale said...

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.

Name: myGlobeConnect
APN: www.globe.com.ph
Proxy: 203.177.042.214
Port: 8080
Authentication Type: PAP

Name: myGlobeInet
APN: http.globe.com.ph
Proxy: 203.177.91.131

Port: 80

Eto yung settings ko pero hindi pa rin nagana, By the way naka registered ako sa PowerSurf Time 15. And my mobile is myphone a848 duo. Sana po matulungan nyu ako. Thanks

mark said...

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

Adrian said...

MyPhone A848 po

Adrian said...

Yup, tama po yan. Fixed-focus po ito at walang GPS.

handsome ^G said...

ah. last na last na lang tlaga po kuya adrian, pde po?


with GPS po tlaga sya and fixed focus ?
kasi sa ibang website wla dw pong gps saka AF dw po cam nya.

Adrian said...

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

Harriet said...

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.

handsome ^G said...

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

handsome ^G said...

diba may gsensor din sya kuya adrian?

Adrian said...

Meron po

Adrian said...

MyPhone po, but depende pa rin yan sa user.

Meron nmn po Flare na kahit ilang beses na nabagsak sa lupa, ok parin yung phone at ganyan din sa ibang A848.

handsome ^G said...

kung halimbawa po preho lang ng way ang pag gamit ng cp like ng flare tska ng a848 duo? alin kaya sa dalawa ang mas tatagal ang buhay? =D

handsome ^G said...

ah. salamat po kuya adrian. =)

handsome ^G said...

anong mas maganda ang quality? flare or a818 duo?

Adrian said...

Depende sa user po yan. Sa performance po Flare, sa price A818 Duo

Adrian said...

Punta ka po sa Settings > Bluetooth > Then turn it "ON" > Tap the "menu" capacitive button > Rename phone.

eric santiago said...

sir paano po ba ma personalize uny name ng bluetooth sa my phone a848 duo

Adrian said...

MP A848i Duo po dahil dual-core, 5-point multi-touch, 5MP auto focus at meron 3G connectivity.

Ito po ung specs comparison ng dalawa http://www.ilonggotechblog.com/2012/12/myphone-a848-duo-vs-myphone-a848i-duo.html#.UVIoMBwyazs

john said...

anong mas ok po ba talaga ? a848 duo or a848i ?

Adrian said...

Ito po yung 5-point touch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRCDRXYJBCY Yung madali po yan dahil capacitive touch po yung A848

Microsphere said...

Faust Principe said...

the myphone a848 duo does not support 3g.. use the wireless instead

Adrian said...

Sabi po A848 users autofocus po yung device.

Jacypol Paraz said...

tip lang po baka maka tulong. lower the brightness turn off the data, blue tooth and wifi kng di ginagamit.

Jacypol Paraz said...

you have to root your phone para matolungan kit. kasi you need to swap internal phone storage to ext sd.

carlos said...

pls help. just got my a848i..and i can't download from the play store..."connection time out"/"connection error" lumalabas..what should i do?

Jacypol Paraz said...

baka maka tulong po go to system setting->apps-> then hapain mo yung google play, then uninstall updates.

mikay said...

Leezhel Ferran said...

Q1: is it normal ba sa unit nato na 4 hrs ang charging time then after 6-7 hrs stand by ay lobat na?
Q2: effective ba ung mga battery saver sa playstore? thanks guys

Adrian said...

Leezhel Ferran said...

Leezhel Ferran said...

disqus_477S9qvagU said...

bakit ung aken. kahapon ko lang binili. may memory card naman ng 8gb pero sa tuwing nagdDL ako ng apps namamatay buhay sya ng sarili nya. lagi p syang log. may antivirus naman ako wala nmng virus. nakakadisappoint din

Adrian said...

Na try mu po bumalik sa pinagbilhan mu po baka meron defect yung phone mu? At na try mu din po mg DL ng wala memory card? Baka sa memory card din po yan.

Adrian said...

Punta ka po sa Settings > Language & Input > Android Keyboard > Uncheck mu yung "Vibrate on keypress"

kc said...

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

Vincent Asis said...

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.

Faust Principe said...

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

Adrian said...

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

jaded said...

paano iactivate?

jaded said...

hindi ba magagawan ng paraan para maactivate ang mobile internet?

norie said...

pano po maalis ang keypad vibration while typing sa A848

Adrian said...

Punta ka po sa Settings > Language and input > Android Keyboard > uncheck ung "Vibrate on keypress"

shaizer said...

joyie15 said...

kung ano ang nangyari sayo ay nangyari den sa akin.. what i did is i format it since i dont have any choice. all my downloaded applications were gone. now, i cant download any application from play store and i don't know why...

米吉 said...

mas maganda ang services ng A848..super awesome..d ka maghihinayang sa pagbili nito...

danz said...

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

Kenneth said...

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

jhonas said...

nabili ko na sya hahhaha

Adrian said...

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.

Kram Pesquisa Resurreccion said...

san po ko pwede mag dl ng antibirus>

JHEVEY RV ™ said...

aiytz said...

Jin Ryan Bibliotica said...

someone can help.. ?? pls help me how to set my internet setting using smartbro sim and others.. i really dont know what to do....

Guest said...

quick question, since A848 duo doesnt have 3G connectivity, pag nag unli surf ka sa globe sim mo, hinde ka padin mkakapag internet? some are saying they can still browse the net. and if may personal hotspot ba yang A848 duo?

nyakers said...

how would you distinguish if your using 3G then? kase if thats the case then why bother going for the A848i if sa A848 ok na. hehe. uo nga pla, how about the personal hotspot? thanks bro sa reps

Adrian said...

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

nyakers said...

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?

aiytz said...

matibay po ba ung a848 duo po? please msg me sa aiytz_abella@Yahoo.com fbat ym ko po yan.. badly nid ur comments.. thanks po..

Enz Tan-Castro said...

yup, actually im using a848 duo, no problems, good condition

aj jimenez said...

lam nio po ba kung pano alisin ung shutter sound ng camera?

Enz Tan-Castro said...

Press mo lang yung volume key, pag nasa camera mode ka

Adrian said...

Wala na po dahil yung A848i lng po yung 3G capable. WiFi nlng po yung gamitin nyu.

Isabel de Castro said...

so wifi lang puede?? wala bang ibang way to connect using sim?

Adrian said...

Yung A848 po walang 3G. Sayang lng po yung supersurf200 dahil mabagal yung net.

Isabel de Castro said...

pano mag connect sa internet using globe sim?? pls advice. gusto ko sana mag avail nang supersurf200..

Adrian said...

Meron hotspot, bagal lng po dahil nd po ito 3G.

Photo below: Sa A848i po makikita yun sa signal indicator (SIM 1) meron na dyan nkalagay "H" o "HSDPA". Sakin po A848i nlng po kayo, dahil sa dual-core processor, 5-point multi-touch at meron 3G connectivity.
