      Starmobile Play is a very good alternative to Rio Fun, might even be better. Really depends on the user, would one trade 3g over 2g or 4inch to 5inch screen or 3.2mp to 5mp camera? For me, Starmobile Play looks more promising, except for the awful 5mp camera quality!

    • lespu says:

      BTW, I was referring to the video quality, while the still image capture of Starmobile play is good, but not great.

    2G only? But what would ever do with a 2G-only phone D:

    • boy bezel says:

      angal ka ng angal wala ka naman unlidata.

      kumokonek ka pa sa wifi ng kapitbahay ng di nila alam.

      ay sows.

    • T says:

      @boy

      O sige ako ng walang unli data, at ikaw na tama. Kasi magkakakilala talaga tayo sa totoong buhay eh no. Super close pa nga natin eh. Alam mo lahat tungkol sa buhay ko, pati ba naman eh kung meron mang unli data or wala ang phone ko. Grabe. You the best. Siguro kahit kulay ng brief ko memorize mo noh

      “kumokonek ka pa sa wifi ng kapitbahay ng di nila alam.”
      ALL THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREEEEE!!!!!!

  3. dodong says:

    aray ko po. 2g? Mas tangpap ko pa ang 512ram pero 2g? Talaga lang ah. 2g? 2g? 2g? 2g?

  4. Ew says:

    bat sa CM 3G yung life nila?

  5. dennis says:

    2G is ok. Most people usually connect via wifi anyway – not thru mobile data…. and i have a backup: portable wifi

  6. andot says:

    okay lng yan 2g, most phones nga na di android is 2g lng ang gamit pero ok lng din naman gamitin db?.. di din naman lahat ng phone users eh gumagamit ng data connection.. may wifi naman kaya ok na yan.. kung di ka naman nka plan di ka mamomroblema sa 2g na yan. lol

  7. mga poor says:

    Panget ba magkaroon ng 2g na phone? Lagi akong nakaconnect sa wifi, and napakapangit kaya ng 3g connection ng mga providers natin.

  8. fffff says:

    make it P1,999 nalang and i’ll get one

  9. Raphiduz says:

    Anong apps malalagay mo sa 512MB internal storage? Kawawa naman bibili nito kung di nila alam kung ano ibig sabihin ng 512MB internal storage. kahit na pwedeng lagyan ng sd card yan, most of the Android apps, are installed in the internal storage not in SD card. SD card can only be used for pictures, videos and other files. Kung yun ibang brand nga, at 3K price 4GB na un internal storage, eto tinipid naman ng husto.

  10. renzo says:

    edi i root mo tapos install ka ng app2sd para maka install ka ng laro sa external sd mo tss..
    lahat may paraan XD

    • MZ.zUI says:

      nga naman.. pero parang la pang firmware na para jan walang pang back up… kung sinoman ang may link paki post pls

  11. renzo says:

    kahit papano astig parin yang myphone rio fun na yan… kahit ang baba ng internal memory at 2g, bawi naman sa screen.. mga iba kasi dyan walang pake sa internal spec.. puro visual ung tinitignan nila.. kya pwede mo pagyabang yan kasi ang laki ng screen at di nila aakalain na ganyan lang pala kamura yan XD

  12. wew says:

    tanggap ko p ung low resolution display e at 512 mb ram,kaso 2G?!hahaha pass ako dito

  13. cherrynovo says:

    ang dami niyong reklamo. eh kahit nga 3G eh nahihirapan rin naman ung service provider natin eh. nasa pilipinas tayo. at alam nating bulok net natin. at marami namang pwedeng alternative eh. bat di mo gamitin wifi? saka ano ba target ng phone na to? ung mga taong ganyang price range lang ung kaya nilang ibili. eh kung afford mo bumili ng phone na more thn 3k, edi mag-ipon ka. hindi ung satsat ka ng satsat diyan.

    • wew says:

      hindi naman malaki ang maidadagdag sa presyo kung sakaling gwin nilang 3g to.hindi naman ikakaaray ng isang customer kung magdagdag siya ng kaunti para magka3g,kasi ibang price category na ung may 3g.atleast ramdam nilang nakakamura talaga sila.tska seriously,wifi?pag sa daan ba eh may wifi pa rin?tska kung bibili ka man ng pocket wifi,edi mas namahalan ung customer.ang point lng eh hindi naman magmamahal to ng todo kung gawin din nilang 3g.

  14. MZ.zUI says:

    okay na yan para namn sa mama at papa ko 5 inch screen lang naman ung gusto nila para makatext tawag at picture.. ok n din yan sa mga parents na d masyadung techie
