CM Flare S4 Max vs Starmobile Play Max vs MyPhone my92 DTV

Battery life is an important consideration when buying a smartphone since it won’t be useful no matter how much features it has if it has no power. Because of this, handset makers have been coming out with phones carrying big battery capacities.

For this comparo, we pit three local brands that have come out with smartphones with big batteries and don’t break the bank. These phones are the Cherry Mobile S4 Max, Starmobile Play Max, and the recently-introduced MyPhone my92 DTV.

From this side-by-side comparison of specs, we see that all three carry the same display size and resolution. The internals are also identical in terms of number of cores and clocking of the processor, amount of RAM, and storage space.

What differs from the three is in the camera department. The Starmobile Play Max trails behind with its 8-megapixel rear shooter compared to the 13-megapixel camera of the other two. Selfie cam is also the same at 5-megapixel but only the Cherry Mobile Flare S4 Max has no front flash.


Among the three, only the MyPhone my92 DTV has a digital TV tuner so you can watch your shows even while on the go. The company didn’t specify on their listing if the my92 DTV has GPS and FM radio, but we think it has those since they’re mostly basic features for a phone.

The phone with the largest battery is obviously the Flare S4 Max with its 4200mAh capacity compared to the 4000mAh Starmobile and MyPhone have.

As for the price, Starmobile’s Play Max is the most affordable among the three and MyPhone’s my92 DTV has the highest asking price.

If you were to choose, which would you pick from the three? The comments section awaits.

      Ang iPhone at Google Pixel nga, 12MP lang ang mga camera nila.

      Wala naman sigurong diperensya ang mata mo, ano?

      ?? Iba ang mamahaling 12mp sensor ng samsung sa mumurahing 13mp ng local brands. Kung yung 12mp ng samsung ang nilagay diyan siguradong mataas din ang presyo niyan.

      At para sayo atalia. Alam mong budget phone yan kaya wag ka masyadong mag-expect ng top quality. Kung social media upload lang e ok na yan dahil todo compress din naman mga jpeg mo sa album ng fb at instagram.

    Your basing camera performance on Megapixels as a winning factor? for shame!

    If you’re using mobile, continue to scroll down until you see the links to the latest posts. Or if you’re on a desktop, the links are at the right. This is going on for three days already.

    Correction s4 max is 5.5″. It’s very responsive but has some heating issues. Batt is very good. Cam is great except for dim shots. It also equipped with mt6580 w/c is better than the spectrum soc from the other two. Tried a demo unit of the play max and it’s not that responsive. I haven’t tested the my92 yet but I assume it’s the same as the play max. Im waiting for the cloudfone thrill powe to see how it compares to these 3.
