    1k pala ang bayad sa bawat update ng OS LOL

  3. paul says:

    ano ba talaga ang gamit nila chipset yun ang tanong… MT6582 or mt6732

  4. archie says:

    Kung nag-iimprove na ang quality ng Chinese OEMs, this is good for competition dahil mapipilit ang ibang manufacturers na pantayan ang Chinese pricing. Dadating ang araw na Samsung at Apple na lang ang maglalaban sa status na premium.

    ang panget naman nyan hahaha
    tapos ang mahal pa eh mukang walang laban yan kay lynx
    on screen pa buttons medyo nakaka turn off :))

  6. anon says:

    As I prefer on-screen buttons to capacitive ones it’s nice to see a local brand bring these on non Android One devices.

    Mas sulit pa din yung Lynx, pero okay ito if you want good battery life. Especially kung MT6732M yung chipset, because as Gizchina has shown over and over again, mas maganda yung MT6732 sa MT6592 despite having half the number of cores.

      Me too I like onscreen buttons. Sana nga lang ginawa nilang android one to para may guaranteed updates. Kahit medyo mahal, at least may updates. Phones like these never get updated.

    SKK’s Lynx won the game!

  8. Red says:

    Hintay muna kayo ng review. Ayos dahil gorilla glass 3 na yung display compare sa plastic na ginamit nila dati sa unang version at on screen na ung buttons. Nag improve din ung camera dahil may blue glass lens mas mabilis at maganda na cguro to kumuha ng low light shots plus 5mp na front camera. Dati 2000mah ngayon 2800mah laki ng pinagbago sa battery big deal kasi sa halos lahat un. Latest software pa Android Lollipop 5.0. Ang tanong ano kayo yung 1.3GHz quad-core CPU? Saka anong difference sa design nito sa 1st rio? tingin ko mukang matte na ung back cover nya.

    • Jas says:

      Yup, tama ka dyan. Kumpara sa unang version ng Rio malaki na improvement nito. But sana, ginawa na nilang 2GB-3GB RAM. Tapos pwede iupdate. Kahit 7K bibilin ko e. Tiwala na ko sa myphone, been using their a848i duo mag 2 years na siya sa akin.

      Yung SKK, hmmm. I don’t know, medyo skeptic ako sa phones nila. Parang gusto ko na ayoko alam mo yun? Hahaha. But nice specs and price ha.

  9. speclord says:

    as far as I know, myphone is the first local manufacturer to utilize on screen buttons on their phones so this is something new to the customers but a big step up nonetheless. thumbs up myphone.

    Good but could have been better. Masyadong overpriced para sa specs. Don’t make a big deal about dun sa camera sensor. Kaparehas lng yan ng sa Flare S2. Bigger battery? Cool, kaso nga lng mron ng modded battery ang original Rio so nothing to write home about. Mas mgging mgnda sana kng mas bagong SoC gnamit nla. Don’t get me wrong, mganda ung 6582 BUT, luma na ang A7. 64 Bit na ang direction ni android and an A53 cpu would have been better. The Mali 400 series is not getting any younger. It’s what? 4-5 years old? Eventually ung mga game devs will no longer make their games available for the mali 400 ksi masyado ng luma. Dpat snapdragon 410 or mt6732 nlng gnamit nla kesa ung 6582. I’d rather have a newer, future proof SoC than a Gorilla Glass screen. Yan ang nagpamhal jan ung Gorilla Glass. Wrong compromise Myphone. Better SoC>Gorilla Glass

  11. benciel says:

    okay na sana ang lahat kaso lang na disappoint ako sa GPU nya. MALI 400 pa rin. dapat nasa adreno 305 na yan eh. Yun lang thanks

    Hi! I’d like to ask where you got these 2 phones for their prices that include a Globe SIM with free 100MB data every month for 1 year. Also, is this a prepaid plan or a postpaid plan from Globe? Thanks!
