MyPhone Iceberg, quad-core 5.7-inch HD display phablet for P11,988

MyPhone announced the launch of its latest quad-core device, the MyPhone Iceberg which will become available on July 26 at the Eastwood City Central Plaza for Php11,988.

If you’re wondering why this seemingly budget quad-core phone is priced above P10k, it has quite remarkable specs. The 5.7-inch IPS display has an HD resolution and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2 for a bit of durability which goes well with its aluminum body.


This phablet is powered by a 1.2Ghz quad-core processor along with 1GB RAM plus 16GB internal storage signaling the lack of a microSD slot. It also has a 12-megapixel BSI rear camera plus a 5-megapixel front-facing one. This Android Jelly Bean device has a non-removable 2,600mAh battery.

Now as for features, aside from USB OTG which lets you plug in your external drives, the Iceberg highlights some features that are unique in its class. There’s Wireless Display that lets you connect to an external display via a WiFi connection. Clever Motion gives you that gesture commands similar to other phones. Gestures such as wave to take a photo or wave to dim, holding the phone next to your ear to answer a call, or flipping it over to mute.


It also has TARA or Theft Apprehension & Asset Recovery Application which is a proudly Pinoy app exclusive to MyPhone users that disables your device to secure data in case of theft.

If you think the Php11,988 is too much to pay for a MyPhone device, the Iceberg can still be had on 0% interest up to 24 months using your Citibank, BPI, Metrobank, and RCBC credit card. Just head to Eastwood City Central Plaza from 4PM to 12 midnight to get your hands on the MyPhone Iceberg.

    Kung totoo nga na rebranded BLU Life View ito, meron siguro itong MicroSD slot, according to GSMarena…

    • Calvin

      pero mukhang di sya exactly rebranded na blu kasi sabi sa fb page nila walang microsd slot. or customized?

    • abuzalzal

      Confirmed na ito paps from Myphone na mismo wala siyang external MicroSD slot.

  • Toinks

    Hindi siya rebranded. Same lang ng manufacturer (Tinno mobile) with BLU. Magkaiba ng gusto ang bawat buyer kaya magkaiba sila ng kinalabasan.

    Notable differences:
    Corning Gorilla Glass 2 – Sa BLU, yung may CGG2 ay yung Life One.
    12MP primary camera with BSI
    USB OTG – E2 parang nirequire ni MP dahil non-expandable yung memory ni Iceberg.

    Don’t take my word for it. Research research din pag may time.

    • Griswold

      sa totoo lang nabwibwiset na ako sa mga “pag may time” na comments na yan. hahaha. magtatanong na lang ako dahil wwala akong time. yung may time na lang ang magreresearch para saken.

    • richard salvador

      tama po yun, hindi po lahat ay magaling magresearch, kaya wag pong sasama ang loob natin pag nagpopost ng mga info.

  • http://n/a MikeB

    i wouldn’t mind the 11k tag kung may kasamang mmc slot.
    i got a galaxy 7.7. built in 16gb is not enough for my needs. kaya naka mmc padin ako.

    pero kudos to myphone for this. ang mumura with high-values.

    • Griswold

      tama yung sa taas, USB OTG ang solution mo. sa hard disk or flash drive mo lagay mga series at movies mo para medyo flexible at gamit ka na lang ng cable if you want to watch from it.

    • Useless usb otg

      Useless yung usb on the go, kung gusto ko ikabit sa usb or hard drive sa laptop or tv nalang ako manonood, maganda nga yung portable sana para pwede ka manood kahit saan, alangan naman nasa bus ka manood ng movie kabit mo pa phone mo sa usb or hard drive

      • Griswold

        usually ginagawa kina-copy muna from hard disk papunta sa phone kung anong gustong panoorin. delete na lang afterwards.

      • Nonsense comment

        Nonesense comment.

  • louel

    please confirm single sim support only MyPhone

    • Titanic Iceberg

      Ok na sana walang microsd, tapos single sim pa pala, wow deal breaker na yan

    • zhonghua

      Dual sim po ito, dual standby… check the myphone page again..

  • renxoi

    gonna have this one !


  • hakuokii

    naku… talo na to ng mga cosmos series…
    eh ang specs neto parang nag ohd2 ka lang…
    pagktpos… IPS lang… eh cosmos SUPER AMOLED..
    sa battery lang to lumalaban…at un lang talaga laban nya

    • My Phone Lover

      oo nga talo po sya ng cosmos series. malaking factor yung super amoled at expanded memory card.

  • http://smat cm user

    talo nga po sila ng cosmos series eh quality kaya ng cm ?

    • mbml120594

      pare dami negative comments about sa cherry mobile. halos lhat kramihan defective tapos ung camera at pati ung display ng x2 na super amoled hndi pwede i compare sa s3 at s2

      • CMlakwenta

        Tama…. FAI lang… customized ang product ng mga Cherry mobile. Ibang phone hindi pinag iisipan ang compatibility ng sw & hd. Kaya resulta bagsak. Big example is Flare…

        Isama pa ang bad cs service…

  • nivram

    Maganda sana kaso non-removable ang battery. Paano po ‘pag nagworn-out na ang battery? Disposable din po ba pati buong unit??

    • jake

      mas maganda every 2years or 3years palit ng phone kasi dami bagong labas

    • http://LANCES LANCE


  • http://yahoo laiza

    i just want to ask kung open line na po ba yan? kasi nsa cook island ako..mgpapabili sana ako jan sa pinas kaso bka nid pa pa open line? please reply asap! tnx!

  • Marcial

    And if the phone has no memory card slot, all the data on the phone no matter how big it is will be deleted upon resetting the unit if it becomes UNSTABLE. I want those with memory card slot.

  • http://[email protected] momo

    wala pala tong Memory card slot, sa 16GB na memory nya 11GB lang yun pwede mong gamiting tapos pag nag freeze pa yun OS mo yari ka na 😀

  • akosihood

    puro kau ganyan. kung ayaw mo nyan di wag ka bumili ano pinag lalaban mo… di mag branded ka dika naman pinipilit bumili eh. kung kaya mahal di bumili ka para lang to sa mga taong praktikal at sapat lang sa badjet. ungas na to…

    wala ko pinapatamaan para sa mga bida bida jan.
