‘Most Awaited from MyPhone’

MyPhone Rio is probably the most awaited smartphone from this company since it leaked few weeks ago.

Now, those who patiently waited for MyPhone Rio can finally get their hands on the cheapest quad core smartphone in the Philippines – ₱4,999 each only!

Take a look at MyPhone Agua RIO:

Aside from yellow, MyPhone Rio is also available in blue, green, orange, red, white and black.

MyPhone Rio Design and Display

MyPhone Rio features a compact design complimented by different colors of matte poly-carbonate back cover. This is one of the features of MyPhone Rio since people can choose their favorite color instead of the usual black and white.

By powering on a MyPhone Rio, you’ll be greeted by a 5 inch IPS display at HD resolution.

MyPhone Rio operates using Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with custom icons and several tweaks to match the MyPhone design.

MyPhone Rio Performance

MyPhone RIO Orange
MyPhone Rio uses the 1.3GHz quad core processor from MediaTek called MT6582M with a Mali-400 graphics processor. This is a very good combination considering the price of Rio. However, there might be few lags here and there due to the high definition screen.

Opening a lot of apps or using 3D games won’t be much of a problem for RIO since it has 1GB of RAM. Only very few smartphones at this price level has 1GB of RAM.

There’s only 4GB of internal storage but thankfully, a slot for a 32GB micro SD card is present.

MyPhone Rio Camera

The main camera of MyPhone Rio isn’t the best with its 8 Megapixel sensor but it’s already good for basic photography needs even when taking group photos.

We have no sample photos from MyPhone Rio yet but if you have used a MyPhone A919, they should have the same picture quality.

  1. Medyo malabo yung kuha ng cam

  2. nah... rio uses MT6582m and 4999 is its RSP

  3. 2000mah battery for a 5" HD screen and a quadcore processor you'll have to charge your phone often.

    Maybe the rumor is true... Obviously 3-5 items lang ang binibenta nang bawat kiosks sa mall and then matagal pa kung damating yung item.. I guess myphone did this on purpose na limited yung stock ng rio... . Lucky to those who bought it for just 4999 if later this year the price will rise up to 7999...

  5. i bought mine for only 2999 how was that?


  7. XD Yung Myphone Rio FUN po yung nakuha nyo, di yung Myphone Rio hahaha

  8. CPU 1.3 GHz quad core processor, eh ano naman yung GPU ilang care kaya? if single GPU lang useless parin unlike iPhone 6, dual core CPU pero ung GPU 6 core. GPU is for graphic enhancement, wala ding gyroscope basi sa spec na nilagay. dapat specific ung CPU, CPU at yung mga support, importante kasi din ang gyroscope, para sa mga racing 3d need gyro support.

  9. CPU 1.3 GHz quad core processor, eh ano naman yung GPU ilang CORE kaya?
    if single core GPU lang useless parin unlike iPhone 6, dual core CPU pero ung
    GPU 6 core. GPU is for graphic enhancement, wala ding gyroscope basi sa
    spec ng myPhone RioLTE na nilagay. dapat specific yung CPU, GPU at yung mga support,
    importante kasi din ang gyroscope support, para sa mga racing 3d need kasi ng gyro
    support. like Real Racing... etc.

  10. No gyro support and GPU i think single core, labo parin...

  11. bahala dual core ang cpu basta ang GPU above dual core at with gyro support. yan ang importante sa performance ng cellphone.

  12. naku laos na yan masyadong mahal almost kasingpresyo na nyan ang skk mobile phoenix x1 na octacore big battery 2000mah 8 gb rom 1 gb ram mas maganda pa ang cherry mobile flare s3 at skk phoenix g1 parehong below 4000 pesos

  13. kung gusto mo magkasing presyo 4999 parehong 5 inches skk mobile v2 may heart rate pa sya 2500 battery 8gb ram 1gb rom android kikat pa sya

  14. umiinit pagginagamit,pero okay naman sana mabilis,kaso maliit lang yung internal memory ng phone..sana malaki mga 16GB or 8GB man lang..

  15. naka bili po aku ng RIO FUn for 1500 thou :D


  16. ma-porma but very poor phone, not yet one (1) year is already blinking, showing black screen, hanging and cannot open menu applications, sudden depletion also of battery etc....tsk tsk tsk...I'd stick with my original proven brand which is more than 3 years but still working well until now.
