‘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.
