Earlier today we had posted about a new smartphone launched by Lava called Iris Atom 2X which is priced at Rs. 4,499 (approx $68). Now Philippines based smartphone manufacturer MyPhone had launched a new device named ‘MyPhone My27.’ The device is priced at P2,999 (approx $64 / Rs. 4,220) which is clearly cheaper than the Lava Iris Atom X2.
Talking about the My27, it sports a 5-inch FWVGA (480×854) IPS display and is powered by the Spreadtrum SC7731 quad-core processor. The device has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage which can be expandable up to 32GB. It comes with dual SIM dual standby support without 4G LTE connectivity. Apart from the processor and the bigger display, the other specifications remained to be same on both the devices.
Coming to the camera department, it has an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calls. On the other hand, the Iris Atom 2X came with a 5MP rear camera and a VGA front camera. The device has a 2,000mAh battery that can give decent battery life considering the basic specs.
The connectivity options on this device include 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and MicroUSB port. It runs on the Android 5.1 Lollipop OS out-of-the-box. The company is also offering a wrist watch for free on the occasion of completing eight successful years. While we still feel the MyPhone My27 is not the perfect device, but comparing with other devices, this device offers better specifications.
While the MyPhone smartphones will not be sold here in India, there are few best entry-level smartphones under Rs.5,000 price range like YU Yunique, Phicomm Energy 653, and Lenovo A2010 that offers great value for specifications and are also future proof by offering 4G LTE connectivity.
