A new product line?

Earlier today, MyPhone teased that they’re coming up with a new octa-core smartphone for the masses. Well, that phone is the my31, and is apparently a new product line from the pinoy company, complimenting the Rio and Infinity lineup that they already have.

When it comes to specs, the my31 doesn’t really offer anything too mind-blowing, as it comes with a 1.4GHz octa-core processor, 5-inch HD display, 1GB of RAM and an 8-megapixel rear camera. There’s no LTE on board, and the device uses a non-removable battery. There’s a physical reset button on the back though that’ll help you if you run into trouble. The phone also brings back the PH map that the company took out in previous devices.

  1. Eh… MT6592M for 5k is a hard sell in today’s market. Especially when you can just add 1k and get the CM G1 instead, which boasts LTE and 2 years of updates, even with half the cores.

    1. What’s wrong with the philippine map???haaayyyy….di ko talaga maintindihan kung bakit kayo nababaduyan sa mapa ng pilipinas….dapat nga ipagmalaki yan e dahil yan ang bayan natin….gusto ko lang talaga malaman yung point nyo bakit baduy ang isang bagay na may mapa ng pilipinas???.tsk tsk

      1. Filipino
        Eh hindi naman gawang Pinas ang MyPhone, Chinese invaders ang yumari tapos tatapalan mo ng Philippine map sa likod, may sense ba o WALA?????

      2. You don’t see Apple stamping US maps on their phones or Samsung with SK. The point is that their name and trademark products are what allows people to say “Wow, this is American/South korean manufacturing at its finest!”, ergo, no need for stupid maps to bring recognition to their nations.

        The PH map on the back of myphone is just a flawed sense of “pinoy pride”.

        1. Hindi nyo nakuha ang context ng previous comment ko….ang sabi ni 1001101000 “bumalik ang pagkabaduy ng myphone” dahil sa map…so yung mapa ng pilipinas ba ang nagpabaduy sa myphone???hindi ko ipinagtatanggol ang myphone at hindi ko rin sinasabing ipagmalaki natin ang myphone…ang akin lang wag naman sana sabihan na baduy ang mapa ng pilipinas….

        2. At isa pa apple products are not manufactured in US….their products are designed in California but manufactured in taiwan, mongolia, korea and guess what China…

        3. I can’t wait for Samsung to have their Note 6 with the South Korean map at the back.

          It feels so K-pop when it does.

      3. o sige kaw nga try mo magpa tattoo ng mapa ng pilipinas sa buong likod mo or maglagay ka ng decal ng mapa ng pilipinas sa auto mo sakop buong hood.. ganon namin sinasabi na ambaduy ng mapa.. napagkalaki laki ng ginawa.. puro kabaduyan concept ng myphone kaya kakahiyang bumili ng phone na to e, parang pang jejemon. basta ang korni lang.

        1. Yeah…i would do that…unang una may tattoo ako ng mapa ng pilipinas sa may kanang bahagi ng torso ko…at ang kotse ko ay may mapa at bandila din ng pilipinas….at hinding hindi ko ikakahiya ang mapa ng pilipinas kahit gaano pa kalaki…alam kong cheap at baduy ang myphone pero hindi ang pilipinas…mahal ko ang pilipinas mahal ko ang bayan ko maraming salamat…

  2. “WOW! Jaw dropping specs! I’d trade my M1 Note for this!!!”…. buti na lang nagising ako. Isang bangungot pala yun!

    1. Kow, ang pangit naman ng M1 Note… Mas pipiliin ko pa yung K3 Note, kahit Zenfone gamit ko.

  3. Just Add 1k more and u have the Cherry Mobile One G1.. xD .. Anong kaLokohan to MyPhone..? Hahayyyy… 😀

  4. 0.o 1 GB RAM oh….. Hibangers

    Tsaka bakit mapa ng Pilipinas nakalagay sa likuran? Proudly Philippine-made, ganun ba yun? hahaha……..

    1. “Tsaka bakit mapa ng Pilipinas nakalagay sa likuran? Proudly Philippine-made, ganun ba yun? hahaha”

      OMG IKR hahaha

    1. Nope. Actually, it’s the infinix pure. Also, For the same price, you can get the Flare S3 power, with 4000 mAh batter.

        1. bilib din ako sa fs3 power, meron nyan kaklase ko at dahil sa mataas ang battery nya, naunahan na nya ko sa clash of clans gawa ng kaka-th hunt nya magdamag.

          maiba lang, parang may beki ka ronan taba ng panga mo o

          1. Parang beki din. Hi kakosa Ronan. Anyway, I think myphone still has better after-sales service than cherry mobile. Though smartphones aren’t really durable, you really don’t want them to be immediately disposable.

            – proud beki here

  5. I can sense the desperation from Myphone. They can’t think of anything better than to bring back the dreaded map logo. But judging by the comments, it’s not working. This confused state of mind of Myphone will only hasten it’s impending doom. Myphone should get its act together fast, whoever thought of this stupidity should be shown the door.
    Nobody, but the most baduy of all or the class D will buy its phone with a map. If that is now Myphone’s target market then good but it has to remember the affordability of its phone for that market too. Most of them can’t afford that price range, no matter the specs.

    1. Most of the target market probably won’t care for specs either. To them it’s just a cheap iphone alternative, IMO.

  6. Dont be fooled by cheap prices and high specs. Cherry Mobile can’t compare with MyPhone in terms of quality. Remember that MyPhone is backed by Sony service centers. Pag may problema ka, punta ka lang sa service center ng Sony. For the My31 specs, I think 5K is justifiable.

  7. Natatawa ako how people compare things. Kung ang price ay Php 4,999 lang hindi fair kung i-compare mo yung MyPhone sa Samsung or iPhone. Dapat i-compare mo yung parehong yung specs, quality, at price range.

    Bakit ba kayo bumibili ng phone for status symbol or gamitin as a communication device? Pathetic.

  8. anong problema sa 1gb ram ehh phone ko nga 1gb ram lng nagagamit ko na pang gaming at a high setting pa .. infinix pure user 🙂

  9. i have one and before buying it i was really just planning to use for movie watching and games.. and guess what… nasa gilid na ang lg and sony phone ko… i dunno why but it has the same features.. and its an android phone… i use it sa work… and for games.. and i haven’t really had any problems.. yet… been using it for 2 weeks now.. will update you guys if i encounter a problem but for now…. its nice.. for only 3,999 its worth your money… for the bashers and pa sosyal peeps.. well try to buy one and use it first.. then maybe you can give a comment about it… how can you tell that its bad if you haven’t tried it yet right???
    cheers!

  10. Nabili ko sa akin sa Lazada for 2,999. Sulit na sulit ang binayad ko kase maganda naman sya. Matagal malowbat at klaro ang sounds. At eto pa ha, Android L 5.1 na sya ngayon official update ng OEM. Hindi ko pinoproblema yung mapa sa likod, madali namang takpan yun ng case or sticker. Tingin ko matagal ang pagsasamahan namin ng My31 na ‘to 🙂

    1. pano po xa iuupgrade to lollipop??
      nakabili din ako sa lazada..for 2999
      satisfied nmn ako.. kasi maganda xa. saka mabilis pa.. malinaw ang camera..
      for me affordable tlga ..
      pero honestly ayaw ko rin ung map sa likid nia.. tinakpan ko na lang xa ng pic ng baby ko.. hehehe

  11. got mine..and I’m satisfied..don’t much about specs..i think that makes it expensive, but in the end masisira din if you will not take care of it properly..I also bought My22 and My23 for my husband and son respectively and plans to buy another My21 for my other son…

  12. may alam kayo kung paano ma babawe yung ninakaw sayo ng ka trabaho mo? tanong kulang lang po kasi ninakaw yung my phone my31

    1. e di kunin mo sa kanya alam mo pala nmn na katrabaho mo xa at the same time kilala mo xa, gnun lang ka simple, kung ayaw ibigay isumbong mo sa pulis, pag ayaw pa rin, isumbong mo na kay TULPO…:D
