Spec-wise, the MyPhone my28S wins in terms of internal storage and microSD card expansion, having double the amount compared to the Flare Lite 2.


Both phones sport 5MP rear cameras, however, the my28 has the upper hand when it comes to the front camera for having a 2MP camera with LED flash which appeals to those who want to take selfies in dark environments.

When it comes to battery, the my28S has a slightly higher battery capacity at 1,450mAh. That’s 50mAh higher than the Flare Lite 2. As for the operating system, the my28S is already running Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. The Flare Lite 2, on the other, hand, is stuck at Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

In terms of pricing, the Flare Lite 2 is originally priced at Php1,999, same as the my28S. However, the Cherry Prepaid’s Flare 799 Bundle puts the phone under a very affordable Php799. What the Flare Lite 2 lacks in specs, it makes up for in services and freebies like a free Cherry Prepaid SIM card pre-installed, free text messages to all networks, free Facebook, bonus loads, and free data. The only downside we see here is that the bundle is only a special promo that will last until April 30, 2016.

That doesn’t end there though as Smart is also offering the MyPhone my28S for a one-time payment of Php888 and comes with a free Smart Prepaid sim containing 7 days free Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Added perks include free 100MB of mobile data per month for 1 year, as well as an additional Php30 load if you top up at least Php100 per month, and a free TNT SIM with Unlimited all-net texts for 2 days.

So what do you guys think? Which phone do you think is worth getting? Let us know in the comments below.

      yeah. for just an additional of 89php, go for my28.
      – double the storage capacity
      – better front camera
      – lollipop OS agad

      1 thing i liked with the flare bundle, the screen protector freebie instead of the sports watch of my28

    just got my myphone my 28 this morning. I ordered mine thru online and I received it within 7 business days. Aside from the sports watch, the unit also comes with 2 free simcards (1 smart and 1 talk n txt), and also has a free screen protector just like the cherry bundle… not bad for Php 888

    i ordered my28 thru smart online store last jan9, up to know wala pa din. sa jan 25 ko pa daw marerecvd. tried cancelling the order pero ndi nila kinakansel. jan 14 ko pa pinakansel ayaw nila, wala nmn ata silang stock.

  6. tan Ga ka says:

    Pls correct your post! It is misleading. The 888 version of Smart is different from the My28 version you posted. Smart’s 888 phone only has 4GB of ROM. The same specs with the Cherry flare lite

  7. JEFF says:

    Totoo bang 4gb rom lang ung s smart 888??

  8. neti says:
