If you can see both the Starmobile Crystal and the MyPhone A919 Duo have the same processor, RAM, internal storage, price and both have GPU's that can play Angry Birds, Bad Piggies, Temple Run and is compatible with Adobe Flash, but the Starmobile Crystal edges the MyPhone A919 Duo with its qHD IPS display for better viewing, 2MP front camera and its superior BSI sensor paired with the 8MP camera that not only gives better low-light performance, but also a very much improved camera shooting experience! While the MyPhone A919 Duo boasts a bigger 5-inch display, tri-band GSM connectivity, Dual-mic noise reduction feature, TV-Out / USB-OTG support and a 2,000mAh battery.

Now, which phone wins the fight?

Note:
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. The technique was used for some time in specialized roles like low-light security cameras and astronomy sensors, but was complex to build and required further refinement to become widely used.

If you own one of this phone, please share some of your experiences and opinions about this phone, so that others may be aware of it. Thanks!

  4. Nope, the pixels look sharp thanks to the IPS display of the phone, but if you're using it too close to your eyes you will actually notice the pixels.

    While the battery (screen brightness set to low) can last up to 2 days (minimal use: texting and facebook) and 1 day (moderate to heavy use: gaming and watching youtube). Charging time is 1 hour and 45 minutes.

    Btw, I own a MP A919 Duo and it's my primary phone :)

  5. Regarding the display of the MyPhone A919 Duo, will its pixels be as worse as the badly-reviewed screen of the Galaxy Grand? Also, is the screen a battery hogger?

  6. @Chad Bee pag a888, bibili ka pa ng Jelly Case at Screen protector = Cost? (tho medyo mura nga)

    Pero sa StarMobile Crystal hassle free... Free nga kasi...
    Di ka na mapapagod mag hanap pa...
    I have one kaya ko nasabi...

  7. I'm not Adrian, but I think that best brands that are trustworthy in the Philippine Tech Market as of right now are Starmobile and Cherry Mobile (selected phones).
