Yesterday, during the MyPhone Rio Fun launching event, we were one of the lucky people to experience it first hand. The Rio Fun is currently one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest phablet in the country for only Php2,999.
To give a quick recap, it sports a 5-inch display with FWVGA resolution powered by 1.3GHz dual core MediaTek MT6572 processor coupled with 512MB of RAM.
The front is mainly occupied by the display, below it are the capacitive keys while above the screen you can find the VGA secondary camera and sensors.
The back cover has a matte finish making it immune to fingerprints or smudges. Here you can find the 3.2MP main camera accompanied by an LED flash at the upper left corner.
|Removable back cover|
The back plate is removable, underneath it you can find the battery compartment, the micro SD card slot and the two regular SIM slots.
The volume rocker is located at the left side while the power/lock key can be found on the opposite side.
The top holds the micro USB port as well as the 3.5mm audio jack while at the bottom there is nothing much to see except for the microphone pinhole. The design and build quality can be compared to the original MyPhone Rio.
The 5-inch display has FWVGA (854x480) resolution and it only supports 2-point touch.
The Android Sensor Box detects several sensors namely accelerometer, light, proximity, sound, magnetic and orientation, however, only the first four are confirm working.
