Affordable SmartPhone: MyPhone Rio Fun


It was my birthday last September 18.

I hosted a swimming party a day after nasty Mario flooded the metro. My old phone dived into the pool. Blame the strong wind. I didn't know or witnessed what happened. All I know is that my phone died.

I have no plan (and budget) to buy an expensive smartphone. I just want a reliable and affordable smartphone.

MyPhone is the brand that came to my mind.

I checked out the website  and MyPhone Rio Fun appealed the most.

MyPhone Rio Fun retails for an affordable price of P2,999 (US$68.15). It boasts of a 5.0" screen size and comes in FUN colors -- red, orange, blue, green and yellow. There's also the usual black or white but where's the fun in that?! But you can opt to change the plastic back cover once you get bored. They sell it for P99 only.
