Last May 17-18 MyPhone held their first BlogCon 2014 (Bloggers exclusive conference). Where I got this as a prize on a game (also hoping to win the Infinity, but I was a bit unfortunate that time).
Upon seeing the unit for the first time the color made me love it. The classy Rose Gold color and the trademark premium build by MyPhone complemented well with this phone.

Best at its price! When I first turned on the device, my first impression about it was WOW! The screen produces vibrant and clear colors. It has a 4.7" IPS HD display with 320ppi. I can say that its screen is pretty decent for its price of 7999.

|Great color production|
|It's great for gaming: 10 point multitouch|
Also it can play moderate to heavy games like: Temple Run, Subway Surfer, Need for Speed Most Wanted and Dead Trigger 2. All of those games runs smooth thanks to the Mali400 MP2 which is known for great 3D graphics performance.
It's a real good Selfie Phone! Let's talk about the front camera first - It has a 5MP fixed focus lens but the good part is that it uses wide angle lens which is good for taking group selfies. The front camera produces great image quality with clear details.

Going back to the main camera. the camera ui is slightly tweaked by MyPhone. I noticed using the main camera that it suffers a little bit with indoor shots as it cannot locked the right exposure and lighting on time resulting to camera shot delay. But with the outdoor shots i can say that this phone is really great.

It's above average for a 1800 mAh. The battery lasted for about 4 hours screen time of heavy use with 1 hour of 3G usage and the rest is with WiFi. I also used it for browsing through WiFi and surprisingly it manage to squeeze up to 5 and half hour of usage. I can say that for its battery capacity the life span is above average and for some people who rarely used their phone the battery might last a day and a half.
For the final verdict, I can say that for it is perfect for its price. The build quality, good screen and camera is a deal breaker, with a bonus of excellent battery. For those who are looking for a premium quality and great after sales, Iceberg Slim is the right phone for you as it is only Php 7,999.
