my|phone B88+Duo Review

Here is my new my|phone B88+Duo. Last time I said I will buy mobile phone with dual sim feature. Photobucket
My Samsung Galaxy Y doesn’t support dual SIM so I have no choice but to purchase another mobile phone. Changing SIM regularly will make my phone weak for sure. So, I decided to buy new one but a cheap phone only because I will mainly use it for SMS and calls purposes.

So why I need mobile phone with dual SIM features? Because I have Globe SIM for my banKO account. I’m also planning to have a small reloading business. So having dual SIM in one phone is helpful.

GSM Dualband
1.8” 128×160 pixels TFT

Likes: 

It’s affordable and very easy to use.
This is my first time to use mobile phone with Dual SIM and thankful because it’s not really hard to use.
Now listening to music made easy through this phone. I can hear music anytime anywhere through their wireless FM Radio.
I like the money reader feature because I can detect easily if the money is fake or genuine (photo below)

So far the battery life is good.
This phone has Bluetooth so transferring files are not hard.
It’s a pinoy phone ready which contains prayers, about our country, great Filipino quotation, famous movie lines and many others. But I have a problem using it because everytime I click them it said “file not found.” I need to visit the store to ask about this error. I hope it will fix because pinoy applications are useful.

Dislikes:

No games available.
There is no jack for headset. I need to buy separate usb adapter in order to use headset. PhotobucketIt has limited capacity for SMS (both SIMs)

In General:

I like my|phone B88+Duo and for only 888 pesos I can enjoy the features of this phone. Serve as your best friend if you are into SMS and calls only. The sound is fine. It has built-in camera but I prefer to use my other phone and digicam. Bluetooth feature is helpful. I like the money detector feature. 

Cheapest Mobile Phone

I’m planning to buy new mobile phone. I have one here which is Samsung Galaxy Y but it’s not enough. I need to find the cheapest mobile phone with dual SIM feature. Yes, not expensive phone, actually below 1,000 pesos is enough. I will just use this because I have Smart, Sun and Globe network. And because my Samsung Galaxy Y is not for dual sim purposes, it will be hard if I will put other SIMs every now and then. For sure my mobile will not last and easily corrupted. 

Don’t ask me why I need all these SIMs. My smart network is used for a long time already. While I bought Sun cellular SIM because I need to call my Sun broadband provider. Also it will be helpful if I have sun SIM because most of the family members are using this network. I have Globe SIM because I used it for my BanKO account. 

This week is a busy week but for sure after this week I will find time to check for the cheapest mobile phone. I don’t need expensive one because I will just use it to call or send message. So, I hope I will find the cheapest but lasting mobile phone.

Samsung Galaxy Y Review

I’m using Samsung Galaxy Y, where Y means “Young” for a week. I purchased this mobile phone using my credit card. Samsung Galaxy Y is the first Android Phone of Samsung that has the lowest price ever. For less than 6T or around $150 you can avail this phone. 

First time of using:  

At first it is difficult for me to use it because I’m not familiar with touchscreen. But after one or two days of using I used to it already. I don’t encounter problem sending messages because it’s not hard to press the letter. Though I’m a little bit slow in typing my message but soon I will be familiarized. 

It has Wi-Fi already so connecting online for free is possible. I tried it already the last time I went to SM mall in our place. I already downloaded facebook application, yahoomail and some games using Wi-Fi and thankfully it didn’t put me down because it connects very well.  

Having an Android operating system is a plus because you can download application for free. Just be sure you are connected, and then just visit “market” to download numbers of application. 

It has built in camera with 2 MegaPixels. I used the camera when my digicam is not available. The clarity of photo is fine and it is easy to use. 

Right now, two colors are available, black and pink. The latter color is quite new so I chose it and beside it is girly. 

My only dilemma is opening the back cover. The phone for me is too thin which is hard for me to open the back cover. You need to take extra careful in removing it because sometimes it’s hard to open. And be sure your fingers will not scratch on it. 

Overall, if I have to rate it I will give it 4 out of 5. I am satisfied with this phone. It’s not expensive but I’m contented with my Samsung Galaxy Y

Samsung Galaxy Y

After so long of waiting, I bought my own mobile phone. Recently, I was looking for an affordable mobile phone. There are many available in the market so it’s hard for me to choose. And of course I am considering the price. So after the long hunt, I grabbed Samsung Galaxy Y or Samsung Galaxy Young. I have phone choices already but this one doesn’t belong.

So what made me decide to get this phone? The store offers BNPL or Buy Now Pay Later using credit card. I will pay it for one (1) year starting February 2012. My monthly payment is 540 pesos only. I hope I will get bucks here so I will able to pay my monthly due hehe. samsung galaxy y price Philippines

This is the photo of Samsung Galaxy Y. I grabbed from google. I think its silver in color but the one I have is Pink. The store said Pink is the latest color of Samsung Galaxy Y. Anyway, I will make a separate review about this phone and I will show my actual Pink Samsung Galaxy Y in my next post.
