What We Liked

  • Specifications according price are good
  • Latest Android 5.0 Lollipop is good addition

Cautious Parameter

Before you buy, let me tell you that this phone lacks 4G and supports only 3G HSPA+ network. Secondly, qHD is good but not as good as HD or full HD when it comes to display.


This falls in competition of phones with fierce price tag in the market. It will be competing against likes of Firefly Allure 64 LTE, Cherry Mobile Flare X, Alcatel Flash Plus phones.

myPhone Rio Pixie is priced at PHP 7599 and it’s available at myPhone store in various cities of Philippines right away. So no more waiting or flash sales, I am sure you will love that.
