As we can see above, their specifications are pretty much the same. The main difference is the chipset used, the A818g is based on MT6577 while the Rain 3G is based on the MT6572.

The MT6572 is the newer processor but it uses Cortex-A7 which is less powerful than the Cortex-A9 in the MT6577. However, it uses a better GPU which is Mali-400 over PowerVR SGX531.

At more than 1000 pesos difference the Rain 3G is the more viable option. If in case MyPhone trim Php1000 to the A818g (like they did with the A818i) which one do you think is better?
