MyPhone B38TV Duo Impressions & Review
Even the minions like this phone!
It's a perfect phone that have a Dual Sim Feature, Mobile TV, a decent 1.3 MP Camera, Micro SD Slot, MP3/MP4/FM Radio Player.

Now Lets take a closer look at what B38TV is all about...

Impressions

Build Quality - Pretty Solid! It uses lightweight plastic with chrome finish but I bet that it's durable enough to withstand daily abuse (knowing MyPhones ability to build cheap yet durable products, I have had a MyPhone basic phone before that lasted for 3 years). Keyboard keys looks are fade proof and very soft (It's good for texting). The screen do need some improvement though.

Free Speakers! And its decent sounding :)
Battery Life - It lasted about for about 2 days with regular texting and listening to music. That's good enough! :)

Music Player - Pretty decent! :) It has enough power to drive even my ath sj33 and all iems I've in possession. I'm quite actually surprised in this category, MyPhone really knows to deliver good sound. This one is also a good mobile radio phone.

Mobile TV - It's quite okay just look for good signal then you'll be able to watch most of the local tv shows. It also have a TV recorder function. One tip, use the antenna!

Turn the radio on!
Camera - 1.3MP don't expect too much, but it's decent nonetheless. You may need good lighting to get some good shots. 

Usability - Perfect for driving, texting outside, going home late, a backup phone & a perfect decoy to protect your smartphone without compromising much.
