MyPhone has recently announced an affordable 5-inch smartphone called the MyPhone Rio Fun. Just like the Rio (which is out of stock on most stores right now), the Rio Fun comes with youthful colors as well. This is the first 5-inch smartphone to be priced at P2,999. But there are some compromises. Let’s check them out.

- 1.3GHz Dual Core Mediatek MT6572 processor
- Mali 400 graphics
- 512MB RAM
- 512MB internal memory expandable via MicroSD
- 5-inch FWVGA TFT display (480 x 854 pixels) 196 ppi

As you can see on the specs sheet, MyPhone has offered a 5-inch smartphone for only 3K but sadly, it had some compromises. The company, opted for a very limited 512MB internal memory, so it is essential that you buy a MicroSD card. Another thing that we don’t like is the exclusion of HSPA+ connectivity. If you are going to buy this, you’ll rely heavily on WiFi connection. The MyPhone Rio Fun is already available on MyPhone stores and kiosks.
We will do a specs vs specs comparison between the Rio Fun and the newly released Cherry Mobile Emerald soon.
