The good news of the “Trade-in Madness, Android Phone Edition” promo of my|Phone is that it has been extended to June, 2012 instead of wrapping it up last week. Here’s the deal:
- Trade-in any old mobile phone (working or non-working) and get this my|Phone A818 Duo Android Dual SIM Phone for only P3,999.
- If you opt to buy without any old phone to trade-in with this Dual SIM Android my|Phone, the unit is worth it’s current promo price–P4,499. SRP for my|Phone A818 is P5,499.
- Trade-in units should still include its battery pack and is not broken down into separate parts.
This is not the first time i write about my|phone products. I wrote my experiences with my|phone products because i believed it’s worth sharing with the masses who don’t have extra money to buy high-end branded phones. I bought the my|phone units i used in these reviews: “my|phone T23 Duo has Superior Audio than Q19i“, “My Phone is MyPhone“, and “my|phone T23 Duo New Variant is a TV Phone“.
I don’t have any literature about the my|phone A818 Duo nor i can get its detailed specs from the manufacturer’s site. So, i first relied on the quick specs on its box.
Nevertheless, being an Android and Dual SIM is something this phone would stand-up among its level considering its under-P5k price (promo). I’ve checked the Samsung Galaxy Y Duos which has some similarities with the my|phone A818 Duo like: both active Dual-SIM, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS, Wifi, Rear camera, and capacitive touch screen.
However, the Galaxy Y Duos has more on some of the important specs like its faster than the A818 Duo and surfing on the phone is much prettier considering it’s a 3G/HSDPA phone. In short, the Galaxy Y Duos lived up by its name being a smart phone. However, the catch here is the price: P3,999 (trade-in promo) for A818 Duo while the Galaxy Y Duos is priced at P8,999.

Another local brand–CherryMobile has also its Android Dual-SIM phone at under P5k. I’ll do a full review of the my|phone A818 Duo as soon as i can get a unit like what i did with the previous my|phone models.
