MyPhone A919i Review

*This is my first Gadget Review, sorry for some grammar mist.*

MyPhone A919 Duo is my first ever MyPhone phone and I must say that I`m really impressed.  The quality, the built, the specs, the customer service and of course the developers, They`re all impressive! While playing with my 2 months old android phone from MyPhone, I was surprised, A919i came in and its specs are undeniably awesome for a phone with a price tag of Php.9,000+. I do trust MyPhone a lot because of my experience from MyPhone A919 so I believe that I need to give back to MyPhone an unbiased review for their new flagship, the MyPhone A919i Duo.

There are lots of Pinoy branded quadcore phones today and MyPhone A919i is one of them, from A919 Duo`s success, the company established lots of confidence in releasing this quad core phone considering its price is higher compared to other local quad core phones.

1.  The Box Set

Its contents are the same with the MyPhone A919 just without the CD
-The USB Charger and Port
-The Earphones
-Warranty Card

For me, the design of the packaging is not really a biggie as long as I can clearly and easily see the phone`s spec.

2. The Design
A919i is a lil bit smaller than A919 because of its design. The White color offers a pearl like texture that adds a grip to your hands while the Black color offers a glossy texture that attracts finger prints. :) A919i`s design is a bit minimalist compared to  A919 [Less screen border]. The Flash is now located below the camera

-The 5 inches screen
-2 sensors
-2mp front camera

-8mp Camera

-Volume Rocker
-Power button

3. Quadcore`s Performance

MyPhone A919i is equipped with Mediatek MT6589 processor that`s why I do experience no lags. The Application drawer is very smooth and the Applications open very fast. [What do you expect from a Quadcore?] I tried playing Iron Man 3 Official  Game and I just love how smooth the game run until the end.

4. Display
MyPhone A919i boast a 720x1280 screen resolution.
The first time I saw the phone, I was really shocked that my A919`s Level 3 Brightness was defeated by A919i`s Level 1 brightness. The display is very crisp most specially if you`re a gamer or a fan of movies, this phone is for you!
My brother do have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and I tried watching Movies in 720p and I must say that the difference between Samsung S3 and A919i is not that big! I`m Impressed!
A very big jump of MyPhone from A919  to  A919i!

5. Sounds/Speaker Volume
I do experience a not-so-loud speakers from A919 so I expected that I`m going to experience it in A919i too, and MyPhone didnt fail me. [LOL] The speakers are not so bad for normal people but for rockstars or people who love listening to loud musics, they`ll be finding more. But don`t worry! MyPhone provided a very good earphones, I tested it and it sound so nice.

6. Camera

MyPhone A919i offers 8MP main camera and 2MP front camera. The main camera offers options for changing the file size into 1MP, 1.3MP, 2MP, 3MP and 5MP. The camera did great in taking my sample photos!
Make sure to remove the plastic in the main camera`s lens to see its real shooting ability.

The front camera is not that great but respectable for video calls and self shots.

7. Operating System

MyPhone A919i is equipped with Android Jellybean 4.1.2 and it`s very user friendly that even my baby brother can use it hassle free after using it for an hour.

8. Memory
It offers 1GB Ram and 1.77GB Internal Storage. The Internal Storage is quite low for HD Games, thank God we have the MyPhone Devs! They have tutorials on Swapping ang Partitioning of your SD Card-Phone Storage to maximize your Phone`s Internal storage and be able to install lots of HD Games or apps.

9. Battery
I got my phone yesterday [11am] at 97% Battery and I still have 46% battery now [8:12pm]. I`m a social network addict, I do surf a lot and play Iron man 3 for HOURS so I`m very surprised that its battery last me more than a day!
At first I was thinking that 2,000mah is not enough for a quad core because of  Cherry Mobile`s fail quad core release wherein you need to charge and charge everyday! But Myphone killed it! It proved that A919i Quad Core processor is going to give us more than we asked!

10.  Conclusion
MyPhone A919i is a very respectable phone compared to other big name quad core phones considering that its price is very affordable. It`s really a QUAD-CORE phone not a Quadcore-Quadcorean phone. Gamers and movie lovers will surely love this phone because of the Nice HD Display and Long battery life. It`s a kind of phone that you`ll not be shy to show in public.
It`s a great steal for Php.9,000+ ! A very nice phone for its price.



  1. Manipis at magaan ba ang A919i? O parehas dn ng A919?

    1. A919i is lighter and smaller than A919. But they both have a 5 inch screen :)

  2. Typo error po. Should be 2,000mAh not mHz.:)

    1. Thank you so much Sir Emerson for the correction!
      Good thing nakita nyo po.

  3. ask q lng po sana, anu anu po ba pinagkakaiba ng letter G, E, H, display sa data connection?, and alin ba dun ung pinaka maganda?

    1. G=GSM [Slowest]
      E=Edge [Faster than GSM]
      H= HSDPA

      I consider HSDPA+ or H+ as the fastest for our phone

  4. wow nice one myphone you really outdid yourself, myphone a919i duo, (my future phone this may 2013 ^^) and great review.......

    1. Thanks for dropping by sir LJohn Castillo! Hoping to see you around again

  5. this phone is worth buying phone... MyPhone A919i offers not just an quadcore adroid Phone nor it's look or it's price but the "BEST QUALITY OF A QUADCORE ANDROID PHONE" and that's the MyPhone A919i....

  6. whew~ akala ko kasing laki ng a919 XD thx!

  7. Ask ko lang po. Hindi ko po kasi gets ung sa sinabi niyong memory, low po ba yun lalo na sa mahilig sa games . May mga ibng phone kasi na di nagtatagal wala pa man nagfufull na ung internal memory.

    1. The reason why external memory [known as SD Card] was built.
      You can configure your phone`s default writing process or location by going to Settings -> Memory then check the External Memory as the default writing location.

  8. Pwd po bang flip case para sa a919i ung sa galaxy s3 or s4? Thank you po.

  9. Kkabili ko ln po cherry mobile burst at balak ko na syang palitan kasi ung flash nya delayed so di din nya kuha ung ppicturan ko at night. Tanong ko ln po kung ung flash ng A919i eh parang s iphone? As in n sync sya sa pagcapture ng pic?

    1. There are 2 reasons why the phone`s flash causes delay;
      1st. The area is so dark or it doesn't redeem the sufficient light that it needs to capture the area.
      2nd. Focusing

      You`ll really experience such [and even on iPhone which is I`m using at this moment] if you`ll capture stuff on dark places.

  10. help naman po.. ndi ko po kasi alam kung anong mas worth buying? skk platinum or a919i duo..? alin po kaya mas maganda at matibay in your opinion??

    1. for Quality and durability of locally manufactured phone, go for MyPhone, the best locally produced phone devices.

  11. Ano po yung cam tweaks nyo na my 12mp??!

    1. For more Myphone android development, you can simply search for "MyPhone A919i" group on facebook ^^

  12. Maganda camera?? As in? recommendable ba? :)

  13. hi.. since matagal na yung phone sayo, ayos parin ba? sabi kasi ng iba pumapangit display etc

    1. Yes! I`m still using it even though I already have an iPhone. I`m using my A919i as my gaming phone. :)

  14. i have had this phone since july 21 last year, and i'm still much satisfied.
    there's nothing wrong with the display, and i haven't experienced any lags ever since (im not a game-addict anyway).
    the only thing is that sometimes the screen is over not sure if anyone out there who has this phone would agree.
    putting a matte screen protector would help solve this problem, and it's a minor glitch.
    this phone is a great buy,especially last december when it was on sale.

    1. You can also try to recalibrate your screen sir! ^^

  15. Di po ako makasave or download ng apps sa microsd ko. Patulong po.

  16. ilan ba ang hours ng charging nya kuya?

  17. magkano po ba ang a919i ngayon?

  18. good day sir sabi nyo kahit maglaro kayo ng 3hours malaki pa rin ang battery level bakit yung akin po nakaka 3x akong charge in 1 day. madalas pang magbatdrop. any suggestion po. please thanks G.B.
