Myphone Duo Phones - Reviews and Prices

Myphone is one of the new comers among the giant players in the mobile phone industry. These mobile phones are made in the Philippines. Myphone is one of the pioneers and popular brand made locally and has goal for international market. .

The following are the main attractions:

  • Dual active sim card - this is probably the most notable trademark of Myphone products. Their model names come with the tag "Duo" that signifies its dual sim card capability. Both simcards can be active at the same time, which is like having two phones on one unit. This can be a cure among those people who have contacts on 2 different network providers.

  • Filipino contents -other models come up with built in Filipino contents making it a more localized product. 

  • TV Phones - some models are television capable. You can watch from VHF and UHF channels clearly outdoors. But if you're in a nearly closed room you might end up finding a spot to get a clear signal. Just consider why you need to place an antenna on pole for your ordinary television - you need to get a clear reception.

  • Budget Phones - they have relatively low prices for a quite number of latest features they are equipped. I think is it because they are made locally so you don't have to cover the customs taxes, shipping costs etc.

There are other things you need to consider though in getting a Myphone unit

- On user friendliness

Though interface is patterned with industry standard phones, I find that they are bit lacking in the navigation aspect but users won't we alienated by their user interface in general.

- Durability and Parts Services

Overall, you can rely on their durability but the question relies on how many service centers do the company have across major cities or how many independent service technicians are knowledgeable on repairing a malfunctioned unit.


Thre are different models to choose from - Bar, Qwerty, Slide, Touchscreen and TV phones. Here is a summarry of popular models and their current prices.

  3. My Myphone is still working these days,.. and quite awesome still. I bought it around January 2010.I forgot what the model is since it's already faced out nowadays, but it has this distinctive rubberized casing. Anyway, what I really liked most is it's surprising durability. I have dropped it a few times, it even got wet and it's still working like the first time I bought it. It's very user friendly, it has mp3 player, micro sd 2GB storage....The battery life is quite amazing. I can listen to mp3 songs for hours, talk on the phone for hours- it could last a day or two. The only down thing is when you type for SMS, it really takes ages. Like it's lagging. The camera is pretty bad too. Anyway I'd say it surpassed my expectations for the lifespan. I'm crossing my fingers it would last longer. What can I say, for just a few bucks it worked pretty good..

  4. This company will NEVER make it international. If they did they know they would be sued left & right for selling such a crappy product! Worst phones in the world bar none, and they know it is.

  5. i own myphone TW1. it says it is wi-fi capable. but in the quick guide user's manual it says the wi-fi of TW1 is not compatible to all wi-fi system. i am dismayed because when you say wi-fi capable it should be compatible to all wi-fi systems just like the leading brands. and some basic features TW1 does not have just like the options of SEND TO MANY. it is cheap because of its features. you get what you pay for.

  11. THIS myPhone brand SUCKS! I have a TW8 Duo unit, dual sim touch screen phone I purchased 4 months ago and it is the worst cellphone I had. The phone usually turns off for no reason. Hard time to txt because of the delay when typing. The settings are not intuitive and hard to configure and understand. Useless if you upgrade storage because you cannot store messages. The icons and graphics are lackluster. I was once proud because its from a Philippine company, but since the trashy units seem to be just brought from China and rebranded, it has low quality and thus great frustration. Talk about cheap fish crackers pasted with a different sticker... I bet the other myPhone units are of the same low quality. I surely doubt if the famous celebrities they have as endorsers even use it. Its the commercial money they get, of course. I'll surely replace it and NOT recommend to anyone. - Richie of Manila

  12. my A818 duo was snatched this morning, it was 3 of them, so i did nothing, because i was in a hurry accomplishing the tasks being given to me by my boss, suddenly it came to my mind that i hope one day, an added feature like, when it was lost, you just call a hotline number, and automatically the unit will be disabled, as in completely useless. In that way, those m*****f**kers won't be able to used it. Is there any? thnx

  13. if its really made in the phil. I'll support and buy 1, not because I love the celebrities, cause I don't know them, just hear it from a friend,that there is a phone made in the phil. now, and phil. brand also as she said... I was pretty surprise, and wanna buy 1 but sad to say cant use here in japan, but its okay I'll still buy 1... kasi dami kong kaibigang hapon at nagakuha ko ung style nang ugali nila, when the Iphone brought out to the world market, they just ignore it and they wait their own japan, made.. well I just watch them, cause already got 1, and the phone that was made in jap. man, it was a trash. like china.. but of course now a days they already improved it, cause it was 3years ago already... but my point is they don't support products from other country, cause they are proud on their own product.. as what my japanese friends says that the main problem of our country is that we love to buy products from other country, without even thinking that we're paying other people,outside the country, cause we don't trust our fellow filipinos... that's the main reason why our country is in poverty right now, cause we are all fools as what they told me... love your own country and also the countries product what ever people says, just don't mind it... and be proud... from. Yuki japan..
