  1. They brought back the PHL map at the back? I’m not against being nationalistic but that’s an automatic thumbs down..

      1. Yes, because apparently national pride is determined by putting a map logo on the back of a foreign-made smartphone.

    1. A thumbs down indeed lalong lalo na at 70% ng mga phone users will use a leather case or nontransparent gel case

    1. Nah not a rebranded its just so happened that MyPhone and Wiko outsourced it in the same Manufacturer who designs, build phones without a model name and now its up to Wiko and Myphone to put their brands and named an specific model.

  2. How I wish the capacitive buttons light up.. Manufacturers these days are excluding them when in fact its handy when using the handset in the dark. Just saying

  3. mediatek hmmmm last mediatek phone I had was 2 yrs ago then switched to qalcomm phones a moto g 2013 then a moto g 2014 now LG G3 > superb battery life and performance > I never looked backed > ipon lng guys don’t settle for less .

  4. That processor can’t handle intense gaming, it can run, but not as fluid as the Flare X can. Once again, Myphone, you offer the WORST counter.

  5. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Hoy mga ihot’ iha… Hindi maka pag save ng downloaded apps flare x nyo. And if you used it for a longer gaming time, white lines appears in the middle of the screen.
    Even the music player it likes listening to nuisance sound when playing for a longer time.
    I just read the comments from people who has this so called flare x…..

  6. Well as for me, as long it serves the purpose, of calling, texting, facebook, games, and LTE… ok naman sa akin, with LTE connection, tumatagal sa akin ng 8-9 hrs. Ano problem sa map? :). Bagsak ba signal dahil sa map? Naka-acquire na ba kayo ng citizenship sa ibang bansa? Well, kung hindi pa, isip-isip muna bago mag post, naka-apak ka pa din sa map na halos isuka natin. 🙂 just saying. Maging proud na lang tayo na sa pagbili natin sa murang halaga ng unit, kaya nya tapatan ang ibang mamahalin at branded na units. Yung iba nga kung maka comment din, naka S7 nga, pero ang sim naman prepaid, ano kaya yun? Tapos ang purchase pa thru credit card, na zero interest pa ng 12 mos. Ouch. Isipin na lang sa pagbili ng unit na ito nakatulong kayo sa ilang pamilyang pinoy na nagtatrabaho ng marangal sa kumpanyang ito.

    Maraming salamat po
