Water Conflict: MyPhone Vortex versus MyPhone Iceberg

MyPhone Iceberg versus MyPhone Vortex

MyPhone released two flagships in less than 3 months, first the Agua Iceberg last July and the Agua Vortex this month. Many people said that this is some sort of "Product Cannibalism" but some believed that it is a great marketing tool. Time will only tell which is which and most of us probably will never know. Read more to know who has the greater potential.

The Iceberg takes on the challenge with a slightly lower price and higher battery capacity but Vortex returned the blow with expandable storage and added 1MP to its camera. The screen size is about preference, they have the same resolution but different pixel count due to their sizes.

    1. yeah, but the "better battery" is to compensate for the bigger screen which use up more battery power, so all in all, same lang din yung batter nila

    2. and just to mention it will be a harder decision between the two kase yung sa vortex ay removable, meaning pwede kang kumuha ng spare.

  5. can you install apps in usb OTG? not sure if rooting this phone will do that. might be something to think about.

  6. Iceberg has a unremovable battery though. I dont think 2600mah can last a day with a screen like that

  10. Vortex FTW!!! syempre dun ka sa expandable kung techie ka. 16 g is not enough since kakain pa ng space yung OS at sa high def pics malamang sandali lang mapuno ang 16 gig =)

  11. Vortex but you need extra battery, to extend your net browsing.

  12. Vortex has it all.. I would recommend all Filipinos who can afford this price to acquire this unit. All quality phones put together = My/Phone VORTEX

  14. Thanks for the comparison! I'm planning to get a new one probably on March. I remember when I got my myphone a888 a day before its release then it got cheaper several months after. >__<

  16. I just bought Myphone Vortex and I would prefer the Vortex is better than the Iceberg (Opinion) but when Iceberg Mini released I was amazed. my cousin is using Iceberg I like the features yeah the screen is much bigger but when it comes to durable and handy thing I would prefer Vortex. I can store a lot of games and I love it. the vortex white is pretty :D
