MyPhone recently launched another phone under their RIO series, the MyPhone RIO 2 Lite, and I cannot help comparing it with their own MyPhone UNO, one of the first Android One device in the country. You can check the comparison table after the break.

As you can see above, the two smartphones have lots of similarities, such has the processor, RAM, Android version and the suggested retail price to name a few. They also have the same screen resolution, but the UNO has a higher 218 PPI due to smaller display compared to 208PPI of the RIO 2 Lite.

In terms of advantages, the RIO device got some edge on internal storage (8GB vs 4GB), main camera resolution (8MP vs 5MP) and battery capacity (2120mAh vs 1700mAh). On the other hand, the Android One device got the upper hand for having an 8GB of free SD card and most importantly, software updates straight from Google including the upcoming Android M.

It is a pretty close call between the two, therefore, it would depend which thing matters to you most - hardware or software.

    These two (MyPhone UNO versus MyPhone RIO 2 Lite) are very close call to compare so this time your need and preference matter. For me I would love to have the MyPhone RIO 2 Lite for its memory which is 8GB internal storage, expandable up to 64GB via micro SD and its 2120mAh Li-Ion Battery.
