Cebu City-After the success of the A858 Duo, MyPhone’s first dual-SIM android smartphone to feature a 1GHz processor in the market. MyPhone just unveiled in its Facebook fanpage its most powerful Android smartphone to date called the MyPhone A878 Duo! The phone features a 1GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch IPS display, 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash and Android 4.0.4 ICS OS at a discounted price of just Php5,388 only (SRP Price: Php6,999).

"Compare A878 Duo specs with its price to other, Only myphone can give you great specs at an affordable price. Wag po tayong maniwala sa mga sabi sabi lang, you better see it how fast and how good this Phone.” - MyPhone
Advantages of having an IPS (In-Plane Switching technology) display:
Can process high speed signals without data loss by using copper wiring with low resistance values.Can offer clear images and stable response time.Can display consistent and accurate color from all viewing angles.Doesn't lighten or show tailing when touched.

The myPhone A878 sports a MT6577 dual-core CPU, clocked at 1GHz speed and paired with a PowerVR SGX531 GPU. With my experience on the ZOPO ZP100′s MT6575 chipset, which is older than this MT6577 that the myPhone A898 has; its already an impressively fast phone for HD gaming and high-quality multimedia playback, so what more with this new one?
It runs on Android 4.0.4 ICS out of the box, equipped with myPhone’s TINNO UI. RAMisn’t specified but I’m guessing that it will just fall down on 512MB. Not bad though as based on my experience, its pretty much more than enough.
Stated ROM is 4GB which for you to expect a 2.5GB of usable internal storage memorywhich is still expandable with an external SD card with max support of up to 32GB.
It has a 4.3-inches screen, the material is IPS so expect that every viewing angles are good. The display resolution is WVGA, a 800×480 pixels which is not pretty much bad at all for a 4.3″ screen.
It has a 5.0 megapixels main snapper, partnered with that is a 0.3 MP front-camerawhich can support video calls with Yahoo or Skype. Good to know that it has AF andLED flash.
Not sure if its dual-SIM but since its a China phone, just like what we always review, its a no surprise. Good to know that it has 3G support, as the 2100MHz frequency band is supported so no doubt here if it has 3G/HSDPA.
Battery is a 1800mAh one, not much not too little for an Android ICS device. Unlike the mainstream of earlier Android phones having only > 1600mAh battery rating which is a real downer. But this myPhone A898′s battery seems decent enough.
