MyPhone MyX1 Unboxing Photos c/o argomall Philippines

Smartphones with tall 18:9 aspect ratio display are the 'in' thing these days -- but the main issue for budget-conscious consumers who want to jump on the trend is that most of these handsets are still quite pricey.

To be specific, many such devices still cost more than Php 10,000, putting them well within the upper midrange bracket.

That's why I particularly like the MyPhone MyXI, which sells for just Php 2,799 -- making it the most affordable Android smartphone in the Philippines with an 18:9 screen.

I like it because it allows practically every Filipino to experience the benefits of this type of display, which are real and not mere fluff.

Before I give you the specs highlights of this release, here are MyX1 unboxing photos that our friend, Mr. Karel Holub of argomall, generously shared for the benefit everyone who wants to get this handset.

The smartphone is housed in this simple white box with orange accents, which is the corporate hue of MyPhone.

Lifting the lid, we are greeted by MyX1 in its paper tray and translucent plastic cover.

The complete retail package includes the unit itself, the user manual, travel charger, earphones, microUSB to USB charging cable, and the battery pack.

MyPhone MyX1's key technical specifications are neatly presented on the screen protective sticker -- so you know exactly what you're getting.

On the outside, this model features a 4.95-inch FWVGA+ 960 x 480 pixels IPS display panel with 18:9 aspect ratio, a 5 MegaPixel fixed focus camera at the back with LED flash, 5MP selfie cam in front, and HD video recording capability.

Inside the the glossy plastic shell, this handset runs its Android 7.0 Nougat operating system with a 1.4 GHz Quad Core ARM Cortex A7 and Mali-400 GPU based Spreadtrum 7731C processor, has 1 GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable storage.

MyX1 is powered by a removable 2,150 mAh Li-Ion battery pack, supports 3G HSPA+ mobile data speeds, and has Dual SIM Dual Standby capability via its two microSIM slots.

As for the design language, the phone has a rectangle with rounded corners footprint and a predominantly plastic build. The Black version that I have here has a glossy finish, which should make it look a tad more elegant up-close.

I'd say that the distinguishing design characteristic of this model is its oblong camera bump at the back, which is also an impact point when you place the phone on the table.

Overall, MyPhone MyX1's 18:9 aspect ratio display is the only thing that's particularly special about it. The design and other specs are pretty basic and sadly unimpressive. Then again, considering this model's Php 2,799 price tag, it's really hard to shoot it down or to complain too much. Frankly, you get it for the tall screen and for allowing you to stay connected on social media all while having very wallet-friendly SRP.
