|MyPhone Rio Craze, Dual Core KitKat Smartphone for Php1,999|
Yesterday, MyPhone unveiled at the Market Market Activity Center in Taguig City the newest and the cheapest member of the Rio series - the MyPhone Rio Craze.
The Craze packs a decent 4-inch capacitive touchscreen display with WVGA resolution powered by a 1.3GHz dual core MediaTek processor. There is a 512MB of internal storage plus an expansion slot up to 32GB using a micro SD card.
We are hoping that the RAM would be at least 512MB, but it only has 256MB, I guess that is one of the sacrifice needed to meet the PHp1,999 SRP. Thankfully, it runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat which is designed to work seamlessly even on those devices will low RAM capacity.
It has dual camera, a VGA shooter in the front and a 1.3MP snapper in the back is accompanied by an LED flash. The craze draws its energy to a 1300mAh battery source. Since it belongs to Rio family, the back cover is also replaceable.
This dual SIM dual standby phone uses an MT6571 CPU, although a newer chipset than the MT6272, it only supports EDGE or commonly known as 2G. So if high speed mobile internet connectivity is one of your considerations, this phone might not be the right choice for you.
