As you can see on the above comparison table, it is really a close fight. The main difference between the two is the chipset used - Broadcom BCM23550 versus MediaTek MT6582M. The former is the same SoC used in Cherry Mobile Sonic 2.0 and Starmobile Navi.

The advantage of the Spectrum is having a DragonTrail Glass protection while the Rio has slightly higher clock speed. Based on experience, device that uses BCM23550 scored around 14K in Antutu benchmark while those that uses MT6582M scored about 17K.

As of this point, it is quite hard to tell who is the clear winner. I will buy both of them soon and share my experience after review.

  2. MyPhone Rio po mas maganda kung gamer kayo. Difference lang e dragontrail glass ang spectrum while plastic lng sa rio but pwede nmn bumili ng screen protector. Then may software update na din ang MyPhone Rio para mkpg-install ng apps sa SD. I already bought Rio and already have a CM Omega HD, so for me, mas prefer ko Rio :)
