[important]UPDATE: The Trade-in Madness Promo is extended until JUNE 3, 2012![/important]

If ever you are currently saving up to take hold of your very first android device–I have good news for you! Now is the time to get your smartphone from MyPhone’s Trade-in Madness promo. You can get the new MyPhone A818 Duo android phone for a discounted price of just P3999. That’s  almost P1500 savings from the original retail price of P5499! How’s the specifications? It’s very competitive. Check it out below.image

But what’s the catch? It’s pretty simple! You just have to bring in an old phone to be traded-in to get the discount. The phone can be from any brand or any model and the great part is it doesn’t need to be working. They also accept junk mobile phones as long as it is complete. However, it is not necessary and you can avail the smartphone for P4499 if you don’t want to exchange a mobile handset.

Here are the complete promo guidelines taken directly from MyPhone’s FB Fan page:

1. Customer can avail of the promo by
surrendering a mobile phone of any
brand or model, working or non-
working, to buy a MyPhone A818 Duo
at the price of Php3,999.00.
2. Phone to be traded-in should
include its battery pack.
3. Phone that is broken down into
separate parts will not be accepted.
4. Promo period is from April 28 to
May 6, 2012.

The offer is made for a better introduction of their new android phone and spread it to the masses. Also, I suggest you trade-in a non-working phone to save some money.

Here are the MyPhone A818 Duo complete specs:

• 3.5 inch HVGA Capacitive Touchscreen 320×480 pixel resolution
• 650 MHz processor
• 191MB internal storage, RAM TBA
• Android 2.3 Gingerbread
• Dual Sim / Dual Standby
• 3.2 MP primary camera
• Front facing VGA camera
• Wi-Fi ,  Wi-Fi hotspot
• Bluetooth
• WAP / GPRS / SMS /
• MMS/ NO 3GMultimedia Player / FM Radio – Headset jack3.5mm
• Pinoy Phone Apps , APK, Java
• Micro USB v2.0
• Internal memory expandable via microSD up to 16GB
• Battery TBA 1300mAh

MyPhone didn’t give the information regarding the RAM and battery capacity so we should check that out to be sure if it’s really a good buy. The amount of RAM should be atleast 256MB for a decent multitasking and a minimum of 1500mAh for the battery to last a day considering it’s big 3.5 inch screen will consume power faster. At the same price range, you can also have the Torque Droidz View and read what I have to say in it.

Overall, the phone is good but it is not the best in its category because it lacks 3G connectivity. If you opt a dual-sim android, you may look for the Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N at the same price level. You can also check my insights in the new LG Optimus L3 which is the best buy for under P6000 IMHO. But with Myphone’s current price of merely P3999, it is the best deal around in that price. Check out MyPhone’s latest price list.

If you already have this phone, please share your experience and opinion in this new offering from MyPhone so that others may be aware of it.

Promo runs from April 28-May 6, 2012 (Metro Manila) and May 2, 2012-May 6, 2012 Nationwide.

  1. Phone ko to since 2012 and guess what ! its 2016!!! though nagkaraoon na ko ng ASUS (1 year na ata till now), gamit ko pa rin to for my other sim cards. Sa tibay panalo to, sa specs, mid lang siya but hey. panlaban to sa nokia ! haha

  2. Ito ang first phone ko at wala namang problem, (2013,pers taym eh nyay) bilib nga ako eh, palagi kong nahuhulog ang phone ko (clumsy eh hehe) sa isang araw nakaka walo ata, 5ft5inc. double deck bed at sa taas ako, magigising nalang akong nasa sahig na, pero okay parin, mabilis parin. Until nag 6mons. na sakin, palagi nang nag laLag :( i tried uninstalling my apps (camera 360, antivirus, facebook, wattpad) pero ganun parin, camera laging nag koclose magisa, pang music at text/call nalang siya :(


  3. tanong po, bat hindi po ako makaanswer ng mga incoming calls, pero na kakatawag naman ako, di lang talaga ako makaanswer :<, walang nagpapop out sa screen ko, pero ung mga tumawag sa akin, busy daw. yung tipong mga binaba. HELP

  4. i return my phone to the sun plan coz of its poor performance laging naghahang ayaw na maopen i’m dismayed… grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr…..

  5. First 2 months, ok na ok ang experience sa phone na to. But after makapag-install ng several apps, ang bagal na ng performance, kadalasan nangyayari sa phone kapag nagpapatugtog ako bigla nalang humihinto kahit di mo ginagalaw or khit nasa mesa nakapatong, nakakainis. At kupad din mag-load ng icons, paiba-iba ng pwesto, minsan duplicated pa mga icons ng apps. Hindi pwede sa games ito like sa katulad ng Zoo defenders (nag-lalag sobra), Logo quiz pwede.)

    Sakto lang to for texting, call at music but not for other purposes.
    I suggest you buy CherryMobile Flare (ung dual or quad-core) with the same price range as this.

  6. yung speaker ng A818 duo the best. gustong gusto kong bumili ng A919i kung same sila ng speaker. bakit eto lang ung unit na may ganung klase ng speaker. hindi sabog. kalevel nito ung mga top selling international android phones. (pagdating sa speaker). :) camera not that good. pero okay lang kasi i got my separate camera naman. i use this phone for texting, gaming and music at its best.. :)

  7. If you want to buy any Myphone for GPS purposes, forget it… It does not work properly. Or sometimes, does not work anything at all, especially after you have downloaded some android applications. Buy Samsung, Xperia or Iphone instead.

  8. i want to experience having a touchscreen phone but sad for me i cant.
    even thou i am responsible as incoming fourth year student my parents
    don’t want me to buy coz they said i am careless and we are not that
    rich. i’m hoping, dreaming and always praying to have a touchscreen
    phone but i give up. since elementary i want to have a phone like that
    but now i am a graduating student i dont still have any phone like that.
    sad for me. hope there is a miracle. hoping

  9. dre bakit ang lakas kumain ng battery tong A818? anong maganda gawin?.. halos d aabot ng 1day di ko naman masyadong ginagamit
