This is a response to an inquiry of a reader regarding the MyPhone S21. He saw an ad from Globe and they’re gona sell the MyPhone S21for only P1,890. Well That’s if you buy 2 or more of this phone, if not, i guess you’ll get it on a regular price.
It’s normally priced at P1,990 (according to the myphone website).. i don’t think that’s a big discount from globe – P100.00 – considering you’ll be buying two units. Anyway.. a discount is better than none right?
But before you do so, let’s check out this phone… It’s a camera phone which was recently released. Stylish with a cheap price….
Network: GPRS/GSM 900/1800 MHz
Camera: VGA (0.3M)
Display: 128 x 128 pixels, 1.44 ” CSTN, 64K colors
Memory: 6MB user memory
Device Control: Alphanumeric keypad
Phonebook: 500 entries
Messaging: SMS, EMS, MMS
GPRS: WAP 2.0 browser
Multimedia: FM Radio
Battery: 500 mAh
Dimension: 87 x 44.5 x 18mm
Extras: Games, Stopwatch, Alarm clock, Calendar, Calculator, Unit conversion, Currency conversion, World time, Memorandum (errr.. just plain notes)
Standby time: 150 hours
Talk time: 2 hours
This has no bluetooth so it will be hard to share files – specially pictures and tones. You won’t even be able to transfer your files to your pc. The USB port is only for charging your unit and can’t be used as a mass storage device (you only have 6MB… that’s not for mass storage).
I’ve searched around the net and found out that this phone is a bit buggy and the only way to fix it is by going to their service centers.. One tip for soon to be users, don’t mess with the lock codes or you’ll end up an unhappy user. The response time to using messaging is slow compared to other phones.
So, based from the infos that i got, this is not the phone for hippy and tech savvy mobile users. This is a basic phone that looks good with some nice add-ons like camera and FM Radio.
