One of the mobile phones I’m currently using is the MyPhone B88 Duo. I bought it last April because I needed a new dual-sim phone. Why? I accidentally dropped my Nokia handset in the sink while I was washing my face. Really klutzy but so typical of me.
A drenched, non-working dual-sim phone is the perfect excuse for me to buy a new one. Honestly, I remember I was really low on funds that time but a dual-sim phone is an absolute must-have for me. Yeah, I’m unabashedly one of those who think that humans can’t survive on one network alone. 😀
So I went to Abreeza Mall and bought the cheapest MyPhone dual-sim handset I can find. Why MyPhone? Well, the brand’s been getting a lot of good reviews for its dual-sim phones so I just decided to purchase the most affordable of them all. And that’s the MyPhone B88 Duo.
Priced at P888, the B88 Duo is an affordable, feature-packed dual-sim bar phone. It has a camera, a wireless FM radio, a calendar, an alarm clock, an MP3/MP4 player, and an expandable memory. Pretty much everything you expect in a basic phone, right?
Performance-wise, this phone delivers. I haven’t experienced any lags during typing nor noticeable delays when navigating between menu icons. Battery life is also great. With heavy use, I get about two days without needing to charge. Call quality is average and I generally get good reception.
Aside from the very affordable price tag and the fact that all sim slots actually work, what I like best about the MyPhone B88 Duo is the build quality. The body is made of durable plastic. I probably dropped the phone more than ten times already and it’s still in mint condition. Furthermore, the keypad hasn’t shown signs of wear despite the kind of abuse I subject the phone on a daily basis.
The device also comes with a fake money detector. I would’ve preferred a flashlight but heck, the fake money detector makes an excellent conversation piece.
And that’s not all, the B88 Duo also has a voice recorder so one can record phone calls and conversations. It’s perfect for those who are dying to find out how sultry their voice sounds on the phone . ><
The MyPhone B88 Duo is also Pinoy Phone-ready although the model doesn’t come with a microSD card pre-loaded with Pinoy Content.
Overall, there’s a lot to like about the MyPhone B88 Duo. It’s an affordable dual-sim phone that offers excellent build quality, good performance and a few surprising extras. With this nifty bar phone, you’ll never get the feeling that you got less than what you paid for.
