Adrian said...

Pwd po yan. ganyan din po sa iba meron microSIM at ngpagawa lng cla ng adapter para mgamit sa miniSIM/Regular SIM slot ng A888. Try mu lng po.

Adrian said...

Adrian said...

Depende po yan kng kasya. Kapag nd po, huwag lng mo lng gamitin baka msira ung phone mo. Try mo din po pumunta sa MyPhone kiosks/store baka meron higher mAh battery for your phone.

Dean Nash Schwarzen said...

sir i plan to buy a higher mAh battery for myphone a888... possible ba yan na gumamit ng ibang battery or batteries with higher mAh?...im a heavy user po eh lalo na kapag internet or games... and there are time that i play with the phone straight pero 3 hours lang stay nya po...

mike said...

sir tanong po ako meron po ditong warning about sa sim sa isang leaflets ng binili ko na myphone a888 duo... ang nakasulat po ay "your phone requires a conventional SIM card [Mini-SIM 25*15mm]... Micro Sim Cards need to be used with an adapter only and are to handle very carefully as the risk of damaging the slot with the adapter is high"... meron po akong globe sim na meron adapter , ganung sim ba yung ibig sabihin niya na hindi pwedi?

Adrian said...

Sa friend namin po 16GB ung microSD card at wala nmn po problem. Sa official FB group ng MP A888, 32GB (class 10) microSD card po ung gamit ng iba at wala nmn po problem sa phone nila.

Rinkashirukito G Yume said...

sir Adrian pwd po ba ang microSD card ay 32GB????

kasi sabi ng nagbibinta ng A888 ehh hangang 8GB lang????

Guest said...

So far maganda naman yung a888 duo ko, what i don't lang is that it said 4GB internal memory, sa akin 2GB lang...

Juan Pasquin said...

ayy baket? nung naglabas ang kata ng qHD at iba pang brand ng qHD walang nagreklamo? pero nun myphone na ang naglabas dame nagreact? bket? Galet lang.., ? and FYI lng una nagkaroon ang MP ng qhd dhil dati pa lumalabas ang a888 sa mga banners niula so it means lang dati pa may qHD ang MP hindi lang tlga nirelease..and wait its a competition same specs sa PRICE , QUALITY AT APPEAL lang nagkakatalo ang mga phones na yan

Juan Pasquin said...

Clarence Duquez Eda said...

I have this phone right now! I bought it June 20. Sa totoo lang this phone is slow. I can not run Latest HD Games like Asphalt 7, Modern Combat 4 and Temple Run 2 in high quality without Lag. The lag is aweful. Please lang myphone karamihan ng chinese phone ginagamit na processor mt6575 and mt6577. Please use the quad core mt6589. And about the camera. It sucks really 8 megapixel? Parang 3.5mp lang eh. Mas beter pa yung camera ng CM Flare 5mp but malinaw. The 3g isnt even working. Pinakita ko to sa booth ng myphone sm batangas, sabi nya "Ipaactivate mo yan" WTF? Im not stupid automatic na nadedetectng android device ang mga apn ng simcards zzzzzz. Sira lang talaga ang 3g ng myphone a888i I cant connect using Globe or Smart Sim.
