MyPhone my86 DTV Unboxed, First Impressions

Upon seeing the actual box in person, we were treated with the brand’s standard array of packaging, featuring the current design for its digital television-equipped devices. On the inside of the box are the phone, a microUSB cord, a wall charging adapter, a pair of standard-issued in-ear headphones, and several papers such as the warranty card and a myPhone bookmark.


The my86 DTV presents itself with a standard polycarbonate look that’s been seen as a signature look for its recently released devices.

The screen guard has been applied during manufacturing, so all you have to do is to peel off the label to reveal the device in its full glory. On the front, we have the five-inch display, non-lit capacitive buttons, the call speaker, and the five-megapixel rear camera and its accompanying LED flash.

At the right side of the device are the power/lock button and the volume rockers, both are embellished in a chrome color.

At the top, we have the 3.5mm audio jack positioned at the left. You can also notice a part of the camera, which protrudes because of the back shell’s construction design.

The microUSB port and the microphone are both located at the bottom part of the device. Also included right at the corner is the slit that can be used to gain access to the inner parts of the back of the phone.

A 13-megapixel rear camera, surrounded by a chrome accent, its partner dual-LED flash, and a small rear loudspeaker grille can be seen at the back of the device. The back plate, bearing a black color with a matte polycarbonate texture and features MyPhone’s trademark Philippine Map design,  is susceptible to fingerprints and smudges. It has a unibody shell that exposes a few internals circuits such as those of the audio port’s.

Prying open the unit, we have a slot for the removable 2300mAh battery, and dedicated slots for two micro SIM cards and a microSD card.

    MyPhone says it’s marshmallow not lollipop

  9. Mali-400 MP2 GPU. Depende pa yun sa gamit, satisfactory na rin siya.

  10. gab says:

    hey sir Carl hope you can check out the my85 as well. i think that would be a better phone than the my86 as it’s already running marshmallow and is the only phone in their new lineup running a proven mediatek processor. (don’t know much about spreadtrum)

  11. markie mark says:

    may notification LED ba siya?

  12. Easy E says:
