|Phablet War: SKK Mobile Silver versus MyPhone A919i Duo|
The “phablet” war is not only for foreign expensive brands, lately more and more local brands are venturing on this category. Phablet is a smartphone featuring screen sizes from 5.0 to 6.9 inches design to cater the functionalities of both phone and tablet.
MyPhone and SKK Mobile recently released their flagship phone which we can call phablets. The MyPhone has the A919i duo with 5.0 inch screen while the SKK Mobile has the Silver with 5.7 inch screen. Both handsets are powered by the MediaTek MT6589 chipset clocked at 1.2GHz coupled with PowerVR SGX544MP and 1 GB of RAM.
As you can see on the above picture, both phones can be considered as huge. See below for a run down of the specifications.

The SKK Mobile Silver bags the display, memory, camera, connectivity and battery department. The MyPhone A919i has the advantage of having additional sensors, LED Notification and slightly lower price. In practicality the SKK Silver has the edge especially for having a bigger memory, an 8GB internal storage which is pretty rare for local brands.
