A “feature-packed slim phone” is now available for just Php7,999. The new MyPhone Iceberg Slim is a 4.7-inch smartphone running on 4.2 Jelly Bean and touts a sleek body in an aluminum frame.

So yeah, this is another variant to last year’s 5.7-inch Agua Iceberg in a smaller footprint, even smaller than the other spinoff, the IceBerg Mini. Nevertheless, the MyPhone Iceberg Slim has its own aspects to brag about, such as its elegant exterior design, slimmer profile at 7.8mm, and arguably more powerful innards.

For its price, the MyPhone Iceberg Slim offers a quad-core processor, Mali 400 graphics, 1GB of RAM, and a 4.7-inch display with IPS technology and HD resolution. Dual SIM capable, the phone features a 4GB internal storage with up to 32GB of microSD expansion. Other features include the Voice Capture, Magic Camera, and Clever Motion gestures. The equipped cameras use an 8MP sensor at the back and 5MP in front.

UPDATE: Here’s our MyPhone Iceberg Slim Review!

One slight disadvantage is the battery being non-removable. And at 1800mAh capacity, power users may find themselves constantly recharging the MyPhone Iceberg Slim after only a couple of hours of movie playback and playing games. There also seems to be quite an assortment of preinstalled apps, both the popular (Skype, Viber, Facebook, etc.) and the lesser known. Hopefully, users will be able to easily uninstall (or at least disable) any unwanted apps.

The MyPhone Iceberg Slim is apparently a limited edition device, so perhaps only a few stocks will be available—or is this just a marketing ploy? Interested buyers can find the device in major outlets and accredited stores nationwide. It costs Php7,999, which makes it also the cheapest on release among the Iceberg phones.

  1. Edit: My apologies, I got mixed up between this site and another, which I also had open–which had a less-than-stellar review of the cameras’ performance. Thus my reference to the ‘reviews’ in my comment below.
    Anyway, it does not change the fact that the cameras are both excellent, given adequate lighting conditions, despite that other review.
    I have not yet tested them in poor light or total darkness w/flash only.

  2. Just got this phone today in Cebu at the MyPhone kiosk in SM City.
    I have to say I’m blown away by what MyPhone offers for the price, compared to Samsung (which I was also looking at–wanted a secondary phone with the most ‘bang-for-buck’.) It sure has that–it absolutely trounces Sammy offerings at the same price point, and compares very favorably with those at more than twice the cost.
    Why people would pay so much more simply for a name, is beyond me. MyPhone offers great quality and value (this is not my first, nor will it by any means be my last) and good aftersales, from what I’ve heard (though never had to avail of it myself.) The showoffs who pay twice as much (or the same, but with much lesser specs) simply for the name stamped on the device, must be mentally handicapped!
    Yes, maybe the Rio is an even better value, but I wanted smaller than 5″ which I consider too bulky for EDC, and there was no stock of that model anyway.
    And before anyone says I’m a paid shill–I wish it were so! LOL! Nope, just a happy customer!
    The design is very similar to an S4, very svelte and premium-looking, with the notable exception of a METAL chassis. Hear that, Samsung? Of course that comes at the price of a non-removable battery and only 1800 mAh, but I guess you can’t defy physics (or the current state-of-the-art, anyway. Until they come up with a paper-thin 4000 mAh battery…) We’ll have to see how this battery holds up… I am a little fearful, to be honest (see, would a shill say that?)
    The photos don’t do this phone justice, it is beautiful to behold. The screen bezels are thin, the metal outer bezel is polished champagne gold (actually looks like rose gold) finish, while the back is matte champagne-gold anodized aluminum. The earpiece, speaker and camera ports are rimmed in chrome metal. MyPhone designers did a splendid job on this model. The only thing that would really ‘put it over the top’, would be if the front panel came in black–that uniform, monolithic ‘black slab’ look where you can’t see the bezels and home-back-menu icons–when the screen is off. The white looks class, don’t get me wrong, but black w/gold would be the shizz!
    The rear camera is actually really good, review notwithstanding–in decent lighting and especially with flash, the pics are great! Maybe only a slight notch lower in quality than my Sony Xperia’s awesome shooter.
    The front camera is amazingly sharp too–don’t know why the bad review, but maybe the lighting was too low. In good indoor light it took a selfie that was easily as good as the MAIN camera of a Samsung lower-tier model.
    The screen is very bright, with good color saturation–somewhat reminiscent of AMOLED screens–and the sharpness is breathtaking. I have very acute close-up vision yet cannot see the pixels–it has a certain ‘creamy’ smoothness about it that is just total eye-candy.
    The clever motion gestures work like Sammy’s, though I haven’t tested all of them.
    Gaming performance is yet to be determined but I suspect it will do a creditable job with a quadcore and a Gig.
    Wi-Fi seems to get and hold a good signal and is very fast.
    The built-in speaker is quite loud and sound quality very clear.
    As I just got this phone, these are just my initial impressions as I haven’t had time to delve into the nuts-n-bolts of all its features and performance, but suffice it to say I think this may very well be the best offering at its pricepoint, by ANY company, given the specs, more reasonable size than a phablet, and its premium build quality. IMO, MyPhone knocked it outta the ballpark!
