The MyPhone Rio Lite looks like its bigger brother, the 5-inch Rio. The only difference we noticed is the back cover of the Rio Lite does not cover the top, buttom and sides like the Rio. The phone is well built and very very solid just like MyPhone’s other offerings. All buttons are located right side while the micro USB port and 3.5mm headset jack. We have the MyPhone logo and the speaker at the back.


We are a little bit disappointed the Rio Lite’s display. It has a 4.7-inch WVGA IPS LCD display which is fairly low on today’s standards. We wish the display could be on qHD or FVWGA resolution. We will give more details about the display on our full review. We did our initial Antutu Benchmark test and we got a score of – . We noticed lags on our first day with it. This is maybe due to the customized UI.

That’s all for now folks. We will be using this as our daily for a week and our full review will be posted pretty soon! 🙂
