Because I finally gave up on Blackberry and will soon have my postpaid BB plan with Sun Cellular terminated (finally done with my lock-in period. Yay!), I shopped around for the perfect phone for my need. I have been deliberating on getting the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 because of my need to have a wider screen for the eBooks on queue that are currently in my iBooks library. Between the Blackberry and the iPhone, it is the former that I was willing to give up. But again, because getting a Galaxy Note 2 would also mean that I would still have to lug with an extra phone for my other sim. If the Note 2 came with dual sim feature, then it was the perfect gadget for the multi-sim trotting me. That is, until MyPhone A878 happened. This dual-core Android phone is something else. You will read about my quick review of A878, unboxing, photos and camera shots over the hubby’s gadget blog where I blogged about –> MyPhone A878 Quick Review | Unboxing | Specs | Features 🙂
My love affair with Blackberry started last year with the Blackberry Torch. Until I had issues with its handling and how it will always slip off my digits, so I switched to Bold 9900. Then, I got tired of 9900’s ultra fast draining battery life — switched to Curve 9300. Some weeks ago, I decided I have had it. The novelty of BBM for me has worn off and I don’t do BBMs for the longest time anyway. Yes, making my postpaid BB plan a total waste. That’s what you get when you go with the bandwagon. Lesson learned.

My iPhone4 is not exactly the most flexible when it comes to switching sims (among other things), the pick should be one that does not require a micro-sim, preferably dual-sim too.
You will be surprised that the people who mistook it for an S3, a couple of them actually are from the tiangge where mobiles phones abound. You’d expect that people there are more acquainted with the latest of phones. Anyhoo, I got hold of my pretty new toy a.k.a. MyPhone 878 last Monday and without my knowing that two short days after, I will be able to not just have first dibs but actually upgrade to the soon to be launched MyPhone A898.

MyPhone earned my respect since I bought the A618 TV Duo last August, I knew I just had to check out their other Android phones out while I was contemplating on what mobile to replace my then just disposed Blackberry. Speaking of the A618 TV phone, it’s the one phone the hubby can’t live without when Azkals has a game and we’re in transit. Saved me from having to check on Dian Castillejo’s twitter updates on my mobile and read it to him while he drives. Haha! That’s how we roll when we’re out and the Azkals are having a soccer match. 🙂

With my brand new impression of quality for MyPhone’s newer phones which started off with our purchase of MyPhone A618 TV Duo Android phone, it was a good call that we checked out one of those MyPhone stalls in Sta. Lucia Mall after getting rid of my Blackberry Curve 9300 at a tiangge for cheap. Truth be told, this MyPhone A898, with specification rocking as it is, I can hardly call it a back up phone to my already semi-abandoned iPhone4.

Because I can’t help it, I will be posting more photos and even videos of the movie capability of MyPhone A898 in a later post. I am happy to report that there is no hint of lagging throughout my usage of this MyPhone A898 unit. Now there is so much more to love about MyPhone mobile units than its being a patriotic brand. There is now this sense of pride about my lugging around with my MyPhone.

We don’t need to be all geeky to need good quality smartphones like MyPhone A878 and A898. Because if there’s a bunch who can make use of great quality smartphones with spanking camera capability, that will be us, representing the kikay pinay bunch and mommies out there who make sure no milestone is missed with the ongoings of our daily grind. 🙂
Meanwhile, MyPhone A898 will be out in the market next week and you will be delightfully surprised of the price it is going to retail for. MyPhone A898 will retail for give or take P7,500.
