MyPhone DTV Android Smartphones : my96, my91, my89, my93, my87, my86, my85, my81, my28s

Last Saturday - August 26, 2017, I visited MyPhone's concept store in SM Mall of Asia CyberZone in Pasay City and they had on display several affordable Android smartphones with DTV functionality that some of you have been messaging me about.

MyPhone is probably the only player in the market that has decided to focus on crafting and releasing Android devices with Digital TV feature, which makes sense given that many Filipinos really enjoy watching television.

For those who are reading about it for the first time, Digital TV or DTV represents the latest technology in television broadcasting. It is marked by far clearer audio and video quality compared to its predecessor, which is analog broadcast.

Taking advantage of this fresh innovation, Proudly-Pinoy handset company MyPhone currently offers several handsets having this feature, allowing budget-conscious consumers to enjoy their favorite TV shows on the go with better quality than what older TV phones had.

MyPhone my81 and my28s DTV are most affordable models in the brand's 2017 roster. Both selling for Php 1,799, the two plastic-clad handsets share the same technical specifications including a 4-inch WVGA IPS display, 5 MegaPixel fixed focus rear camera with LED flash, 2MP front cam, 1.2 GHz Quad Core Spreadtrum SC7731 processor running Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, 512MB of RAM, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of expandable storage.

Previously priced at Php 3,499, MyPhone my85 DTV has a clear 5-inch High-Definited IPS display, 13 MegaPixel autofocus camera with LED flash, 5 MegaPixel cam for selfies in front, removable 2,500 mAh battery pack, 1.3 GHz Quad Core MediaTek MT6580A processor running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage that's expandable using the microSD card slot. This model now sells for Php 2,999.

Php 2,999 MyPhone my86 DTV almost has the same technical specifications and looks as the my85 but its 5MP front camera has a Soft LED flash for snapping in low light conditions. The downside, though, is that it still runs Android 5.1 Lollipop as opposed to Marshmallow.

MyPhone my87 DTV, on the other hand, has the exact same specs as the my85 -- but it has a rounder form factor and has more subdued colors options, namely, White and Black compared to the trendy loud hues of the my85.

MyPhone my89 DTV used to go for Php 3,499 but now, it sells for Php 2,999. Although this one has a lower resolution rear camera at 8MP compared to the 13MP shooter of the other models on top, it nonetheless has a larger 5.5-inch HD IPS display display and a 3,000 mAh battery pack.

Of this bunch, MyPhone My91 DTV is perhaps the most interesting. This one previously donned a price tag of Php 3,299 but now, you can get it for only Php 2,799. What's cool about this model is that it has a 13 MegaPixel Rotating Camera atop the display, which means that you can snap selfies with the same clarity and resolution as you would using the rear camera.

Big 5.5-inch HD screen along with a 5MP Selfie cam in front with Soft LED flash are the main selling points of the MyPhone My83 DTV. One point for improvement is the rather small 2,800 mAh battery pack but what's nice is that its shell has real metal elements that make it look elegant.

Currently on sale for Php 4,499, MyPhone my96 DTV is the most powerful and most gorgeous handset in this line-up. This one has an aluminum mid-frame and a 2.5D curved glass touchscreen, which make it look more expensive than it actually is. Its technical specifications are also quite good for a sub-Php 5K model. It features a 5.5-inch HD display, 13 MegaPixel main camera, 8 MP front cam, 2,800 mAh battery pack, Dual SIM capability, and 4G LTE support. Inside, it runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with a 64-Bit Quad Core MediaTek MT6735 processor that's complemented by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage.

So there you have it! These models make up MyPhone's 2017 line-up of DTV-enabled Android smartphones. Which of them are you eyeing? Let me know via the comments section below.
