MyPhone A888 Duo vs. MyPhone A919 Duo: Specs Fight!




MyPhone has finally launched its newest and most hyped Android smartphone with a 4.5-inch qHD IPS display called MyPhone A888 Duo, while the MyPhone A919 Duo is the biggest and most powerful Android smartphone from MyPhone! With that a lot of people are asking what is the difference between the two? Since the MyPhone A888 Duo seems to have the same resemblance to the look of MyPhone A919 Duo, while others said that its just a downgrade of the A919 Duo. So, aside from their looks, can you really tell the difference between the two? If not, let’s look at their specs side-by-side after the jump.

Contrary to the rumors circulating in the internet, both the MyPhone A888 Duo and the MyPhone A919 Duo have the same 1GHz dual-core MediaTek processor (No quad-core A888 Duo model), RAM, internal storage, 8MP main camera with dual LED flash and PowerVR SGX531 GPU that can play Angry Birds, Bad Piggies, Temple Run and is compatible with Adobe Flash, but the MyPhone A888 Duo edges the MyPhone A919 Duo with its qHD (960x540) display with 60fps and 245ppi (compared to the 30fps and 196ppi display found on the A919 Duo), 1.3MP front-facing camera and its price (The A888 Duo is Php491 cheaper than the A919 Duo), while the MyPhone A919 Duo only edges the A888 Duo with its 5-inch display, USB-OTG support and bigger battery capacity.

Now, which phone wins the fight?

Michael said...

Mr. Adrian, I am planning to buy a myPhone unit but I'm confused which model to purchase, A919 or the A888 ... Which of the units can I possible use abroad (KSA) without possibly having problems, and can purposefully be used using the internet (good 3G connection)? I would really appreciate your wise recommendation. Thanks.

techietac said...

Adrian said...

Yung 5-inch screen po, battery life (sabi po ng MP A888 users madali dw malowbat yung phone nila kaysa A919), USB-OTG support at quad-band GSM.

Adrian said...

Sakin po MyPhone A919 dahil sa 5-inch screen nito :)

charles said...

for you? what do you prefer myphone a919 or a888?

Adrian said...

Nd ko po alam, sabi po nila meron store na ng bebenta nito for P6,999 ngayon.

edren sanjose said...

edren sanjose said...

sir adrian, pweding mag taas papoba ung price ng a888? kc introductory price plang nka kabit eh.. hanggang kelan po yun? pasagot po agad pls..

criss said...

thanks po :D pinag iisipan ko po kase kung alin sa dalawa ang bibilhin ko po eh

criss said...

yung BSI po ba is sa camera lang po

Adrian said...

Ito po https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyg1DCVLqzg

A back-illuminated sensor (BSI) is a type of digital image sensor that uses a novel arrangement of the imaging elements to increase the amount of light captured and thereby improve low-light performance. Source: Wikipedia

criss said...

Ano po ba nagagawa ng BSI sa cellphone???

Adrian said...

Sakin po yung A919 Duo dahil quad-band po ito. Both 3G capable nmn po at yung size po depende na po ito sayo dahil nd pocket friendly yung A919.

Adrian said...

Tama po, dahil mataas yung ppi nito at malaki (5-inch) nmn po sa A919. Sa performance nmn po same lang.

criss said...

sir adrian bale po pagdating sa display mas maganda po ang A888 tas sa performance po almost the same lang po sila

Adrian said...

Tama po refresh rate po yan. Yan kasi yung nsa benchmark nkalagay fps lng. At sa group ng A919/A888 yan din yung twag nila.

arnel ramirez said...

Sir Adrian pwede ka po ba gumawa ng Starmobile Crystal vs MyPhone A888? Salamat :D

Adrian said...

Cge po, thanks for the suggestion :)

alcbu said...

Just want to clarify cos I'm kinda confuse with the fps, if you're referring to the refresh rate of the display isn't it called Hz, and video recording it's fps?

Luigi Velasco said...

bakit nyo nmn vs ung same company? Also 60fps will tear your battery so mabilis yan malobat. 100% sure ako. PPI tlg mganda jan sa phone nang 888, scale down version lang sya ng A919.

Adrian said...

Request yan nang karamihan kasi.

Adrian said...

Screen resolution po yung WVGA (800x480), FWVGA (854x480) at qHD (960x540).

Yung Pixels per inch (PPI) or pixel density is a measurement of the resolution of devices in various contexts: typically computer displays, image scanners, and digital camera image sensors. Kpag mababa yung ppi ng isang device pixelated po ito kpag mataas po nd po pixelated.

Yung frames per second (FPS) nmn po kapag mataas yung fps nd po noticeable yung lag. Kapag below 30fps po noticeable po ito. Try mu po mg compare ng dalawang phone, mkikita mu dyan yung difference ng 30fps ng A919 sa 60fps ng A888.

criss said...

Thanks po admin adrian :D

criss said...

Ano po pinag ka iba ng WVGA sa qHD at FWVGA

para saan din po yung ppi at fps???

Adrian said...

Thanks for the suggestions :)

USB On-The-Go (USB OTG) is a specification that allows tablets or mobile phones to act as a host, allowing other USB devices like a USB flash drive, mouse, or keyboard to be attached to them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_On-The-Go

Btw, I haven't try using a USB modem on the A919 using USB-OTG. USB tethering is supported.

alcbu said...

Hi,
Can u make a comparison with the new O+ 8.9, I heard it has big screen and long batt usage. Also what's the OTG for? Does that mean A919 which has that is capable of tethering?

Adrian said...

Ok din po, yung 3G ginagamit yan kapag wala kng WiFi at gusto mu mka internet. Tulad ng Smart Bro/ Globe Tattoo, 3G connection ang ginagamit po nito mula sa network.


Sa Skype ok nmn po sa MyPhone (A919), sa A848 wala ko pa po na try yan. Sabi ng nka gamit nito ok nmn po yung skype at join ka po dito https://www.facebook.com/groups/115307691965947/ marami user dyan ng A848/A848i at tumutulong din po cla kapag meron kng question.


Ito po yung comparison ng A848 at A848i. http://www.ilonggotechblog.com/2012/12/myphone-a848-duo-vs-myphone-a848i-duo.html

Alvin Queyquep said...

sir adrian ok bang bumili ng myphone na walang 3g? para san po ba ung 3g? gusto ko po ung myphone a848 maganda narin po ba un?
and sa skype ba alang problem po ba? di ba inverted ung cam tulad ng CM flare?

Alvin Queyquep said...

sir adrian update mo nman po ako if san na available ang cm flare pls...

Adrian said...

Dito sana http://www.lazada.com.ph/Cherry-Mobile-Flare-Black-UNLOCKED-45861.html kapag meron na po stocks yung Flare.

Adrian said...

Yup, sa camera lng po.

asdasd said...

Sir.. ano po kung ikaw papipiliin ano sayo? a888 ba po or a919 .. and bkit po ?

Adrian said...

Sakin po ung A919 dahil sa malaking screen at USB OTG. MP A919 user po ako :)

john henry said...

for me po...A888 duo ang panalo skin...gumawa rin po ako ng isang masusing pag aaral s knilang dlawa hlos..3 months po ang ginugol ko...and then finally i've confirm n tma ang ginwa qng pag aaral bcoz of this article's result so that i've compared them very well, and i therefore conclude that they are really much the same in features, specs and quality..the only difference is their price,if you buy among those two phone..CHOOSE MYPHONE A888 DUO..bcoz it's bigger enough to hold it with your human hand... and it's cheaper than A919 duo that having the same things with A888 duo

john henry said...

john henry said...

Joshua Padilla said...
