  4. Vladimir John PaguioJuly 24, 2013 at 4:50 PM

    sa link na binigay nyo sir,, mukhang may upperhand ang mt6515 when it comes to benchmark compare to mt6577, but in connectivity superior ang mt6577 dahil sa maraming supported network type,..

  5. Nd po, kasi wla pa po promo yung A878 sa ngayon.

  6. Update po sir.. ayun sa anTuTu benchmark result MT6577 po yung processor ng MyPhone A878 Duo..

  7. Sabi po nila yung MT6517 = MT6577. MyPhone A878 comes with MT6517 (without 3G support), while the rumored A898 Duo comes with MT6577 (with 3G support).
