The MyPhone My27 is without a doubt no entry level phone or a push over in the midrange market, however, you’ll be surprised at how affordable is the price of this device. It’s safe to say that it comes in an entry-level smartphone price tag, but with a mid-tier device specs and features, not to mention, the phone comes with a MyPhone 8-year commemorative watch – not a smartphone, just a simple watch that will serve as a souvenir from this local brand.
Perhaps the main highlight for the release of the MyPhone My27 is its out of the box 5.1 Lollipop Android version. While most of the Pinoy phone brands continue to crowd in the Android 4.4 KitKat competition, this phone chose to take a step forward and bring its performance to the most current Android version. On top of that, with an upgrade software, the phone also came with an upgrade internal feature which is its Spreadtrum SC7731 Chipset. This chipset is MyPhone’s latest mid-tier board that houses its 1.3GHz Quad-core processor and GPU. The Spreadtrum chipset is a more advanced chipset that allows the MyPhone devices to accommodate more processing unit without heating the phone up. To complement the freshest OS in the Android arena today, the MyPhone My27 also comes with a 1GB worth of RAM for a smoother multitasking experience.
The My27 comes with a standard 8GB internal memory, which can also be expanded up to 32GB via microSD slot; this amount of onboard storage is now a standard for the midrange phones. On the other hand, its Rear and Front camera is one of the treats that users would surely enjoy from this phone: it comes with an 8MP Main Camera with LED Flash, and a 5M selfie camera – aside from the processor upgrade, this too is also one of the selling points of the MyPhone My27 device.
Despite its raging specs and features, the MyPhone My27 comes with a little compromise – its screen display. It sports a 5-inch IPS Display with 480 x 854-pixel resolution and a pixel density of 196ppi. Though its pixel count is somewhat below at the low end of the spectrum, it is still however enough to provide a passable viewing experience to its users. Besides, you are not spending a lot for this phone, and you get a well-rounded device that could do almost everything, surely the lacks of pixels in the screen is forgivable.
