MyPhone My112 Unboxing & Review

The blog has also those eyes on feature phones especially on this one with 6,000 mAh battery which you first saw here as early as October 2015. Here's my unboxing and review of MyPhone My112.

These are the sides of the MyPhone My112 box. This review unit that I got was the openline version which means it will work on all telcos (you can buy this at MyPhone stores). You can also buy it on their partner telcos. No wonder that it is quite big compared to those Php 499 feature phones that you can fit in a small pocket.


Front: 2.3 inch display, MyPhone logo, usual number and call-related + SOS button. (those # & * buttons are also act as volume buttons)
Back: Camera, speaker, removable back cover
Internals: 6,000 mAh removable battery, dual regular SIM


Just take a look at the right section which is the switch for torch light and the USB cover which will reveal the regular USB port as it will act as a powerbank.


Top: Torchlight
Bottom: Cover which you can see the micro USB port and 3.5 mm. audio jack inside


I also looked at it's 6,000 mAh battery. It's kinda unique that aside from the usual contacts incorporated to the phone for it to charge, the micro and regular USB ports are right there which means you can charge the battery even without the phone and use it as powerbank (at your own risk, I did it for testing purposes)



The box also includes earphones, micro USB cable, warranty card, user guide, starp protector, bookmark, small screwdriver and 4 screws (to further secure the device) bookmark and 1 ampere USB charger.


You can see the UI and the "main page" of the phone as well as the menu. It was quite a challenge for me to drain this battery so it took me 3 weeks to stop this device from mixed calls and texts and FM radio. Calls and texts are not a problem for me. As a powerbank only function, it is not fast charging but it can do the job for smartphones or other devices that only need at around 1 ampere input. Based on my observation, it is very near to it's 6,000 mAh capacity when I charged some of the available entry level smartphones in the house at the time of review. The phone can play video at 240p. The torchlight was so strong that it can go for a few intersections in my area. The SOS sound was also very loud which is very good for times of emergency.  Charging took me at around 7 hours. One bad thing that I noticed is the weak FM radio signal with my earphones which is unusual compared to other feature phones and smartphones that I tested at the same area. The games are quite typical for feature phones like Sokoban. The phone is quite heavy at a bit over 200 grams.



MyPhone My112 markets this phone as an emergency SOS but I saw 2 potential customers of this product. One (which I saw last Christmas season with a female senior citizen) who will use this phone solely for calls - we all know that calls can drain power faster than texts but they don't need/like a smartphone. Another one are those who are in need of powerbank which thru this one, you can have power source and phone in one go. If only this product supported up to 2 ampere output as powerbank, this will be loved for those who own a smartphone with big battery or with fast charging feature. One thing that the brand must check is my discovery on the FM radio thing. The battery life is almost exactly as the numbers said so I'll gonna give 4.25 out of 5 for MyPhone My112. The price of MyPhone My112 is at Php 1,399
